…HAD NOT STEPPED UP AND DONE THEIR DUTY?
74 MILLION AMERICANS WHO VOTED FOR TRUMP SHOULD TAKE A LONG LOOK IN A MIRROR AND ASK, “HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO STUPID?”
“I went through Access Hollywood, Charlottesville — all of these insane things. There’s some degree of growing accustomed to the craziness. It’s not like my heart is racing, like, Oh God, how am I supposed to react to this? It’s just more that I’m depressed. For people who devoted years of their lives to dealing with the insanity in an attempt to advance a policy agenda that you believe in, all of that has been wiped out. The legacy of the Trump administration is going to be that the president sparked an insurrection and people died because he tried his best to not abide by the Constitution and the tradition of a peaceful transition of power that’s been the norm since our founding. Nothing else is even going to be a side note.”
Our Government couldn’t or wouldn’t take Trump on and protect the Constitution for Trump’s ROT, from Trump’s SEWER… thank GOD for the 81 million Americans who recognized that Trump was and is an existential threat to the Democratic Republic of the United States of America.
And these Americans did their JOB!
Before the presidency was the violent insurrection on the United States Capitol, the tweets were the presidency. Stupid, grammatically incoherent, racist, false, mean, petty, hilarious. His online persona was the same as his private self.
TRUMP WILL TWEET NO MORE.
…he made policy and played politics and offered commentary and threatened war by typing out tweets and launching them into the ether. Sometimes the tweets were sent by his aides, like Dan Scavino, his social-media director. But even that process was usually just dictation, with Trump barking aloud exactly what he wanted Scavino to type, even down to the specific and often incorrect punctuation and capitalization of words. During his early days on Twitter, in 2011, Trump relied on an aide to tweet for him. Justin McConney, a former Trump Organization employee, once told me how he’d print out Trump’s mentions to show him in analog what was happening online, and Trump would manually select what to respond to. But by 2012, when he replaced the flip phone with an Android, Trump began tweeting himself.
Of course, none of this matters now. Five people are dead after the violence that Trump incited. With 11 days left in his presidency, Trump faces a historic second impeachment, calls for his removal through the 25th Amendment, and the threat of prosecution the second he steps out of his cocoon of executive privilege and back into the world that he distorted for four years.
My lasting image of President Trump is of a guy shitposting his way through a single term in office, one finger on the nuclear button, the others glued to his phone.
