The more Donald Trump and #MAGA refuse to admit that he lost the 2020 Election, the more insane they look.
I used to wonder what it would be like to live in an America where the president happens to be a combination of Benito Mussolini, the FyreFestival guy, and Charles Manson.
Now I know. It’s like four years of my life that I can’t get back.
Watching the “regime” (quotes intentional) self-destruct, I just want it to be over with. I am excited to discover how it feels to have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that my Federal Government takes the coronavirus pandemic seriously.
Then there are the #fakecivilwar theatrics—fuck those racist chickenhawks. The visual of a white man wearing a mask over his mouth, but not his nose, as a passive-aggresssive act of “war” (again: quotes intentional) seems to be a metaphor for what the U.S. has been facing. Stupidity and privilege combined and weaponized. Would you engage in a “civil war” with that guy? I wouldn’t. They keep doing everything they can to instigate and the masses aren’t taking the bait.
This Newsweek article here focuses on a key truth about the core Donald Trump supporter: they aren’t as poor as they pretend to be. Contrary to the narrative spun by Fox News, the MAGA campaign’s true believers skew higher-net-worth and make more than the nation’s median income.
The haves love Donald Trump. And America pretends that a legion of mentally-challenged have-nots make up Donald’s base. Noooooo, America…mentally-challenged haves make up the base.
The White House became a nuthouse because richer folks got richer.
Sure, the 1% also became more paranoid and fatalistic in the process. But they got richer. As the Founding Fathers said, “Greed is good.”
