He’s not a shipping clerk
On March 19th, during one of his self-congratulatory performances masquerading as a press conference, President Snippy said, “Governors are supposed to be doing a lot of this work…the federal government is not supposed to be out there buying vast amounts of items, and then shipping. We’re not a shipping clerk.”
No shit Sherlock. Of all the things we need this dangerously flawed president to be, shipping clerk doesn’t even make the top 500 list. But as long as he brought it up, let’s review what else Donald John Trump isn’t.
He’s not Nostradamus.
On January 22nd, Trump was asked in a television interview if there were any worries about a pandemic. President Stable Genius said, “No, not at all. And we have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”
On January 30th, during a speech in Michigan, he said: “We have it very well under control. We have very little problem in this country at this moment — five. And those people are all recuperating successfully.”
On February 10th, he repeatedly said — in a speech to governors, at a campaign rally and in an interview with Trish Regan of Fox Business — that warm spring weather could kill the virus. “Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away,” said the hack with a knack for this due to his Uncle John’s record-breaking tenure at MIT.
On February 23rd, he called the situation “very much under control,” and added: “We had twelve at one point. And now they’ve gotten very much better.”
On February 27th, he predicted, “It’s going to disappear. One day – it’s like a miracle – it will disappear.”
On March 10th, he promised: “It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.”
He’s not a good liar.
Oh he lies alright. As of January 2020, Trump has lied 16,241 times. And that’s in public. So basically if he’s talking or tweeting, he’s telling lies. With all that practice, you’d think he’d be pretty good at it. Eh, not so much.
Because after all those bullshit comments making light of the COVID-19 virus, on March 17th President Pinocchio said, “This is a pandemic. I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic. All you had to do was look at other countries.”
No. No you didn’t. It’s on tape, you’re lying. And it’s very likely this whopper will have dire consequences, mostly for the forty-three-percent in your cult who went along with you on the fake news claims and didn’t wash their hands before they French kissed their first cousins.
Just off the top of my head I can name ten of Trump’s lies: Mexico isn’t paying for the wall; the wall isn’t even being built; China doesn’t pay for the tariffs (we do); windmills don’t cause cancer; your sharpie didn’t make Alabama in the path of Hurricane Dorian; New Jersey Muslims did not rejoice on 9/11; North Korea did not return the remains of our fallen soldiers; President Obama didn’t tap your phones in Trump Tower; you don’t have to flush a toilet 16 times (well we don’t); and you totally fired James Comey over Russia — we know because you said it out loud to Lester Holt on national TV.
He’s not humane.
On March 6th, during a tour of the Center for Disease Control, Trump addressed the Grand Princess Cruise ship sitting off the coast of San Francisco. Of the 1,111 crew members and 2,422 passengers, 21 had tested positive for COVID-19. The compassionate and obvious response from any leader would be to find a way to get those people off that floating Petri dish.
But not our guy. Trump said in a Fox News interview, “I like the numbers being where they are. I don’t need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn’t our fault.”
So if any of you are still wondering why the Trump administration turned down the COVID-19 test kits from the World Health Organization, look no further than his own admission. He said it. Out loud. On camera. We do not have access to tests because Trump didn’t want the numbers to go up. You know the saying, “what you don’t know can kill you.” It’s not about saving lives. It’s about Trump saving his orange face.
Beyond this pandemic crisis, there are so many areas where he falls short. He’s not brave — he faked bone spurs, he said AIDS was his Viet Nam and he’s still moaning about the unpleasant swab they shoved up his stupid nose for the COVID-19 test. He’s not a constitutional scholar — hell, we’re pretty sure he’s never even read it. He’s not a student of history — he said Andrew Jackson could have stopped the Civil War (which started 16 years after Jackson died), he thought Frederick Douglass was still alive, and he didn’t know Lincoln was a Republican. He’s not faithful — he publicly cheated on all three of his wives, including shagging Stormy Daniels just a few months after his now 14-year-old son, Barron, was born. He’s not patriotic — he solicited help from Russia and Ukraine to win and retain the presidency and he continually bashes true American war hero John McCain.
He’s not a good person.
And he’s certainly not worthy of the office of President of the United States.
Our iPinion CEO and her husband were on that Princess cruise ship. Thankfully they are healthy and just finishing up their mandated quarantine in California.
