This exchange hasn’t happened………yet.
Trump: “I have pandemic plan and here it is in this three-ring binder with a beautiful cover on the front. Obama’s was just stapled together. I used a three-ring binder with indexed page separators, very powerful. Many important people have read it. I had the best people write it. Look at it. It is huge, bigger than Obama’s. Many people have said it was tremendous, very powerful. You know who I am talking about.”
Press: “Can we read it Mr. President?”
Press: “When Mr. President?”
Trump: “We will get you a copy. It is better than Obama’s fake plan that was just stapled. Ours is in a three-ring binder. Look at this powerful cover.”
Press: “Can we see some of the pages Mr. President?”
Press: “When Mr. President?”
Trump: “We will get you a copy.”
This exchange really did happen.
Press: “You appeared to accuse Obama of a crime yesterday. What did he do?”
Press: “What is the crime?”
Trump: “You know what the crime is. The crime is very obvious to everybody.”
I know it seems like 100 years ago but during the time Robert Mueller was putting together his report Trump stood before the press with a stack of papers claiming what was in front of him was the beginnings of Rudy Giuliani’s own investigation. According to Trump, Rudy’s report was going to be bigger, badder, and more damning than anything the Democrats or the Fake News was going to put out about him and the Russian Hoax.
Fast forward 100 years to today and surprise, surprise, Rudy never put his report out. Honestly except during that two-week news cycle we have never heard another word about it. I know that shocks you, Trump telling us something was going to happen but it never did. Trump telling us he had proof but never sharing it. But here is the thing, the Rudy report and now the Trump pandemic playbook that has apparently been around for “years” is simply part of Trump’s con.
What Trump knows, and the press play right into, is that the average IQ of one of his faithful followers and defenders is about 12, 15 if they still have all of their teeth. In order to distract them, Trump throws shiny objects in the air to hold their attention while the real shit is hitting the fan.
Case in point, to date we are at 88,000 Coronavirus deaths and 1.5 million confirmed cases. What is Fox News covering? What are Rush, Tucker and Hannity talking about right now? Not the Coronavirus but Obamagate.
Do you even know what Obamagate is? Funny thing is Trump isn’t sure what it is other than a frightening sounding word. Remember Trump’s motto, when all else fails blame the black guy.
When asked what Obamagate actually was Trump responded that it was “obvious to everybody.” Later he called it the “the biggest political crime in American history, by far!”
This is what it is. Obamagate is a word, nothing but a made up, unoriginal word. It is not a theory and it is certainly not based on any fact or proof. It is a word concocted in the mind of an isolated, 72-year-old man high on Adderall. A man who sits alone in his bedroom for 90% of the day, fuming that the world sees him as a joke, watching television and tweeting.
It is just another shiny object Trump tossed in the air for the 12 and 15 IQ’s to sink their teeth into. Something for them to blame, and hate while Trump’s Coronavirus response kills their grandmother. Something for them to blame, and hate as they try to stretch that $1,200 check for one more month. Something for them to blame, and hate because they are to fucking proud and stupid to admit that they were wrong about Trump.
I hope each of you are doing well. Staying healthy, six feet apart and conserving toilet paper. We will get through this and live to tell our grand-kids that we survived that thing called Trumpgate one day. Peace.
