President’s Arts Council bid him adieu
After what Donald Trump said and didn’t say about the Charlottesville violent demonstrations, “…the entire membership of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities have announced their resignation.” The Miami Herald reports there might be some hidden political meaning in their message where, “The first initials of the letter’s six main paragraphs spell out ‘r-e-s-i-s-t.'” T-rump had decided not to renew the executive order for the group because he thought it was no way to spend Americans’ tax dollars. He’s rather give it away in tax breaks to the wealthy, and “resist” anything good for the country.
‘Burn Baby Burn’ says North Carolina racist
Christopher Barker, “imperial wizard” of the Loyal White Knights of the KKK in Pelham, N.C., when interviewed by Univision, called the interviewer, who was black, “…the n-word and told her to go back to her country. He also appeared to threaten her.” When asked if he was going to chase her off his property, he replied, “No, we’re going to burn you out.” Sounds like the KKK actions of burning black homes when I lived in the South. North Carolina has been in the news repeatedly in the past over their bigotry, from the LGBT community to black citizens. As an example, the state has 31 active hate groups, as compared to another bigoted state Arizona, with only 18.
Trump’s Mar-a Lago loses business because of…Trump
The ninth big-ticket charity has cancelled its event at Donald Trump’s Palm Beach Club, Mar-a-Lago. This isn’t exactly what the Oval Office lunatic had in mind by turning the U.S. presidency into a “yuge” worldwide advertisement for the Trump brand. His intentions were probably to milk a four-year term for maximum exposure, then bail out by refusing to run for a second term. What T-rump didn’t realize was that once a conniving blowhard, always a conniving blowhard, a characteristic he easily transferred from Trump Tower to the White House. But history will tell just how long the memories are of his vicious and vulgar behavior.
What the hell do they do with Trump?
Charlottesville was another turning point for Republicans in the ‘what do we do with Donald Trump’ saga. I wish I had been keeping count because this could be a first for “Ripley’s Believe it or Not.” How many times the GOP was on the verge of dumping T-rump but didn’t. The fact that he didn’t unequivocally condemn neo-Nazism has prompted harsher criticism for the man, but still apparently not enough to bring down the axe. Former homeland security secretary, Tom Ridge, said, “At what point does a principled party stand up for its principles?” That either means the Republican Party is no longer one of principles, or the GOP is simply afraid of Donald Trump. Your guess.
More bad news for a failing oligarchy
Some new polls from three states that helped swing the election for Donald Trump “…have found that majorities in these states now say they feel ‘embarrassed’ by his conduct in office.” Well, welcome to the club. The polls show, “…nearly two-thirds of registered voters in Pennsylvania (63%), Wisconsin and Michigan (both 64%) said they are embarrassed by Trump’s conduct.” What amazes me is that T-rump’s behavior recently is very similar to his campaign rhetoric, so you have to assume that these voters have just had enough of it. No one wants to say they told you so but they did and if you had listened we wouldn’t be in the predicament we are in now.
