Human beings, at least most, are not born ignorant or stupid, they choose to be. Over the last three plus years I have learned this is a fact in our nation. The primary reason for this sad situation is that like their illegitimate president, most Americans learn everything they know from television.
No intelligent man or woman could continue to support the worst president in history. The only reasons they remain loyal to the orange buffoon is if they share his beliefs in white supremacy, xenophobia, homophobia, and misogyny.
Just a couple of days ago, after failing the American people in their time of crisis, Trump encouraged his cult to protest against the rules established by heroic governors requiring the people of their states to self-quarantine until the coronavirus disaster ends. By protesting in groups, they are breaking the law, and Trump is violating the Constitution once again by encouraging them to break those laws.
More importantly, these protestors are placing their neighbors in greater danger from the coronavirus. One picture I saw of Trump’s cult making asses of themselves focused on a man and a woman, each carrying handmade signs. The woman’s sign claimed that “massages are necessary,” while the man’s said “I need a haircut.” Really, I can’t make this shit up. The “needs” of these moronic crybabies are more important than human life.
In Illinois Trump’s cult carried military assault rifles to the steps of the state’s capital. I swear I’m telling the truth.
Trump’s illegitimate presidency has produced the “Trump Effect.” The “Trump Effect” results in anger, hatred, violence, bigotry, and prejudice like we have not seen in 60 years. Now I am certain that the “Trump Effect” has caused the dumbing down of America. Millions of Americans continue to believe that Trump is right, and that he is an American. Trump is a fascist whose only religion is unbridled capitalism.
Wake up and grow up America! You are being conned by our nation’s biggest failure who is not your president; he serves only the wealthy and himself.
Turn off the f**king television and read. Fox is lying to you for Trump. Facts matter, unless you are a Republican. The right-wing cannot exist without lies.
