I don’t know about you, but The Don’s State of The Delusion or SOTD was quite a thing to behold.
“We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution,” he said, He urged that we “rekindle the bonds of love and loyalty and memory that link us together as citizens, as neighbors.”
I felt like he was going to belt out the Beatles’ “All You Need is Love,” at any moment.
It was so full of shit that at times I had to turn off the sound in order to mitigate the nausea and deter the sensation you get just before you run to the bathroom to pray to the porcelain God.
While watching The Don with the sound off, I became fixated on his upturned chin: the chin of false gravitas. Do you think the same people who do his hair have devised some kind of lift for his chin?
I just loved, loved, loved, that Nancy Pelosi was behind him. It must have driven him crazy and made him pine for the sycophantic Paul Ryan. Remember him?
Weren’t you dying to know what was going through Nancy’s mind while she watched this inflated ignoramus ramble on in his delusional manner?
Let’s play the “what is she thinking?” game.
1. I can really see all the bald spots. Gross. Is that a hair plug?
2. Actually, looking at him from behind is preferable to looking at him.
3. Liar, liar, liar.
4. What an embarrassment. How did this man become president?
5. He is such a little boy. He stands no chance against me.
6. I can’t believe he is the president. Are those hair plugs?
7. Look at all those brilliant young women in white out there standing in
contrast to his dystopian dar8. When is Don Jr. going to be indicted?
9. I am glad I took Prilosec before because it is mitigating the nausea.
10. His hands really are small. If only they were bigger maybe he wouldn’t be so crazy about the wall. Just realized that edifice, and Oedipus rhyme. Funny where your mind goes when you are listening to bullshit.
The Don’s true colors came through when he said: “If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation. It just doesn’t work that way!”
Pelosi rolled her eyes at this point and thought: ‘Here you go again trying to threaten the democratic process.’
And then she thought back to what Richard Nixon said in 1973 during the Watergate investigation:
“People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook.”
She thought: ‘I can’t believe we elected a life long crook and thug to be president. But I’m here now and it is my mission to bring you down. Read my lips: there will be no money for a wall!’
The Don went on and on making up stuff, as he is wont to do.
“The U.S. economy is growing almost twice as fast today as when I took office, and we are considered far and away the hottest economy anywhere in the world.”
Pelosi did her homework.
Actually, Donald, The American economy expanded at an annual rate of 3.5 percent in the third quarter of 2018. Growth in Latvia and Poland was almost twice as fast; the same goes for China and India. Even the troubled Greek economy posted stronger growth. And a wide range of economic analysts estimate that the growth of the American economy slowed in the fourth quarter, and slowed even further in the first month of 2019.
“The border city of El Paso, Tex., used to have extremely high rates of violent crime — one of the highest in the entire country, and considered one of our nation’s most dangerous cities. Now, immediately upon its building, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of the safest cities in our country.”
Oh Donald, that’s a whopper.
El Paso was never one of the most dangerous cities in the United States, and crime has been declining in cities across the country — not just El Paso — for reasons that have nothing to do with border fencing.
In fact the sheriff of El Paso had this to say in response:
“It is sad to hear President Trump state falsehoods about El Paso, Texas, in an attempt to justify the building of a 2,000-mile wall,” While it is true that El Paso is one of the safest cities in the nation, it has never been considered one of our nation’s most dangerous cities. And El Paso was a safe city long before any wall was built.”
Oh no, it is North Korea time, grimaced Nancy.
“If I had not been elected president of the United States, we would be at war with North Korea.”
Gag me with a spoon Donald. Your grandiosity is so dangerous. What are you talking about? Kim Jong-un took you for a fool and saw you for the blowhard and the terrible deal maker that you are.
My recollection was that at the end of the Obama administration, there was no sign that the United States and North Korea were about to go to war. You thought you could bully Kim Jong-un by attacking him with your pathetic tweets. Then you called him “Little Rocket Man,” which increased hostilities and made the possibility of war more real. Then you met Kim Jong-un and decided you were in love and he morphed from “Rocket Man” to “Locket Man.”
According to our intelligence reports, which you don’t read or believe, North Korea continues to work on its nuclear arsenal.
Here comes the red meat, mused Nancy, when The Don railed against abortion.
Most people want to see his taxes; I do too but I also want to find out how many abortions the man paid for!
Referring to a New York law passed last month, Trump slammed lawmakers who “cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments from birth.”
He called for “a culture that cherishes innocent life”: “Let us reaffirm a fundamental truth,” he said. “All children—born and unborn—are made in the holy image of God.”
“These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and their dreams with the world,” he said.
Wouldn’t it have been great if Pelosi, taking a page out of the movie Network, stood up and like a conductor had all the women in white stand and yell:
“We are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore! What about the beautiful little children that you separated from their mothers! You awful hypocrite!”
Pelosi thought: And now we are on to eradicating H.I.V. and AIDS. That’s a new one.
Pelosi once again stands up and all democrats follow and they yell:
“We are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore! What about your desire to expel transgender people from the military, appoint homophobic judges and argue against civil rights protections for L.G.B.T. Americans.”
Nancy broke in to a smile of disbelief when The Don excoriated wealthy Americans who benefit from undocumented immigrants. She stood again and the democrats arose once more:
“We are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. You have hired undocumented workers for years to help build and provide service at you properties. You have had a long-running pipeline of illegal workers. Practically the entire town of Santa Teresa de Cajon, Costa Rica, has worked for you. ”
Hypocrite! Hypocrite! Hypocrite.
“Gee I am so glad I don’t have to look at him. Are those hair plugs?”
