Sunday Morning Post (V.2 #35) - Let the Circus Begin: The Side Shows


Just some incredible happenings to one of the candidates this last week cannot be overlooked without comment by this blog.  Of course, it is the candidate who has displayed a remarkable talent for deflecting attention away from his flaws.  In the process he creates his own side shows which manage to distract us from more important topics.

This past week, we learned that the First Lady has used her private e-mail server for government business.  Does she not know (or care) that in her husband’s paradigm this is tantamount to committing a felony?  Oh, right.  That thinking only applies if you are a Democrat.

Our response: Lock her up! Lock her up!  Lock her up!

In more recent days, some more details have emerged about an incident from earlier in the President’s term.  There have been so many outrages by this guy that we actually forgot this one happened. This incident happened during the President’s trip to Europe, when he had the opportunity to honor the World War One dead with leaders from the European Union at Aisne-Marne Cemetery.

The day brought inclement weather, which prevented our leader from making a big incredible entrance on a helicopter.  As we recall, the Secret Service deemed a ground trip by motorcade too risky and fraught with security concerns.  Result: our leader did not attend ceremonies to honor the fallen from 100 years ago.

Now we have learned (as the late Paul Harvey would say) “the rest of the story”.  We have now heard, from four different sources no less, that on the day of the event the President expressed his reluctance (or perhaps relief) that he wouldn’t have to go to a cemetery that was full of “losers” and “suckers.”  The President’s critics were not surprised at this revelation.  The President has responded that these details published in the Atlantic Monthly are not true and he would swear on anything or anyone that they weren’t true.

Bible, Mr. President, Bible. The word you’re looking for is “Bible”.  Or better yet swear on “a stack of Bibles” which will really make points with your Evilgelical base.  FYI, Mr. President, the Bible is that book you held rather awkwardly for your photo op earlier this summer in front of St. John’s Church across from the White House.

You remember that night, don’t you, Mr. President?  That was just after someone in your administration ordered that police route peaceful protestors from Lafayette Park with tear gas.  Oh, right!  I forgot you don’t care.  My bad.

The President has previously taken every opportunity to stop mail in ballots for the November election citing massive fraud without offering massive or even any evidence that fraud has occurred. Now, in recent comments at two separate events last week he has suggested that people vote by mail and go to the polls in November to test the system. Gee, Mr. President, this really sounds like you’re telling people to vote twice and thereby commit the fraud you claim already exists.

In any case, it is also not a practical suggestion for people to show up at the polls after they have knowingly voted by mail-in ballot.  This will cause confusion and more crowding at the polling locations which could prevent or discourage people from standing in the long lines to vote.  Regardless of how your administration spins this, it is still a bad suggestion.  Not to mention felonious.
Bad, Mr. President, bad!

I also can’t help noticing that these events last week occurred in smaller venues than you have had in the past.  You used to fill up stadiums and arenas, but now you can only draw enough people to fill, what, an airport hangar?  At the risk of twisting the knife into your ego, I must point out that not even Bruce Springsteen’s popularity has fallen off as much as your popularity has fallen.

Ah well, until next week, when undoubtedly the side show will continue...

(Thank you for reading. Happy Birthday, Warrior Queen!)

My inner dread at what MIGHT yet happen in Nov has, if anything, increased, so I won't add any further negatives to what there already are. Save one, perhaps - can you imagine what the composition of SCOTUS will most likely be like following further replacement appointments during another four years? A virtual theocracy - but exclusively Xtian, naturally. It wouldn't be like sending the whole country back into the 'dark ages', those 'dark ages' will seem, in comparison, like the 'Age of Enlightenment'. (My finger-ends will shortly be bitten down to the bone!)

He's the most blatantly lying hypocritical pig I have ever seen, and yet the MAGAts keep goose-stepping.

I heard she got the royal treatment from a gallant knight.

And you make call it a side show, I call it a shit show, and as I've said many times already, he's going to throw as much shit as he possible can to keep his loyal base from voting blue.
