Trump’s Red Carpet and 21-Gun Salute


Recommended Posts

On January 20th, when he leaves the White House, Trump wants a red carpet and a 21-gun salute.

Apparently, Trump feels that he deserves a red carpet and a 21-gun salute for these accomplishments:

- He told more lies in four years than any other president in our history.
- He was the divider-in-chief for four years.
- He eliminated a lot of capable people in our government who were dedicated to serving the American people.
- He appointed a lot of swamp creatures to “serve” in his government.
  And he is the swamp-creature-in-chief.
- He took credit for the good economy that he inherited from Obama/Biden.
- He pardoned convicted criminals, and set them free so that they can be free to commit more crime.
- He tried to undermine programs that help the poor and the middle class, in order to pay for his tax breaks that were designed to further enrich the rich, and to further enrich himself.

- He sided with Putin against our allies.
  And he tried to undermine the Western Alliance.
- He sided with Putin against our intelligence agencies.
  And he tried to undermine those agencies.
- He broke the Iran Deal (a deal that he did not understand), and now Iran is ramping up its nuclear program.
- His “negotiation” efforts to denuclearize North Korea brought us to the brink of nuclear war with that country.
  And now North Korea is ramping up its nuclear program.  (On the upside, he does get lover letters from Kim.)

- He conducted a war on science.
  For example:
>He derided and harassed our government scientists, and he forced many of them out of their jobs.
>He denigrated scientists on the Covid issue, and he ignored their advice on that issue.
>He denigrated scientists on climate change, and he ignored their warnings on that issue.

- He conducted a war on the environment.
  For example:
>He gave the go-ahead to everyone to pollute our air and our water.
>He told future generations that they are “on their own” with climate change.

- On the Covid issue:
>He promised that it would be over by Easter (that was his “Easter Bunny” plan to combat the virus).
>He promised that it would magically go away (that was his “pixie dust” plan to combat the virus).
>Using his “good brain”, he came up with what he thought were breakthrough ideas for cures.
  For example:  bleach, rubbing alcohol, and light bulbs.  (WARNING:  Do not try this at home!)

- He tried to rig the 2016 election in his favor by asking for help from WikiLeaks and the Russians.
- He also tried to rig the 2020 election in his favor.
  For example:
>He tried to coerce the Ukrainians to dig up phony dirt on the Bidens.
>Because he thought that it would disadvantage Biden and the Democrats:
>>He tried to con us into believing his phony claim that mail-in voting was rife with fraud.
>>And he destroyed millions of dollars of our Post Office equipment, in order to impede mail-in voting.

And apparently, Trump feels that he deserves a red carpet and a 21-gun salute for these accomplishments:

- With respect to Covid:
>He lied to the American people by downplaying the danger of the Coronavirus, when he KNEW that the virus was EXTEMELY dangerous and EXTREMELY contagious.
  And he did so for his political benefit.
>And then he deliberately mismanaged the Covid response.
  That is:  he ignored the advice of our healthcare workers and our medical scientists; and he made decisions that benefited him politically, but harmed the American people.
>As a result, more American livelihoods and lives were lost than there had to be.

Note:
  All of this is consistent with the book entitled “Everything Trump Touches Dies” which was written by a Republican strategist.
 
- With respect to the 2020 election:
>He lied to the American people by claiming that the election was stolen from him, when he KNEW that there was NO evidence that the election was stolen from him.
>And then he repeatedly tried to steal the election from Biden.
  That effort included a bunch of lawsuits which were dismissed, because his lawyers could NOT produce any evidence that the election was stolen from him.
>And then he and a bunch of Republicans incited a pro-Trump radical right Republican mob to viciously attack our Capitol, where they caused terror, destruction, and death, and where they planned to cause even more death, all in order to make Trump happy.
  (And as we know, he watched it on TV, and it DID make him happy.)
>And then he put our ENTIRE nation under the threat of more pro-Trump mob violence, on and around Biden’s inauguration.

Note:
  All of this is consistent with the “Everything Trump Touches Dies” book.

And apparently, Trump feels that he deserves a red carpet and a 21-gun salute for these accomplishments:
- He created the greatest mess in American history for Biden to clean-up.
- And he has tried to impede, and to block, Biden’s efforts to clean-up that mess.

It’s like he started a huge and destructive fire, and then he tries to stop the fire fighters from putting out the fire.

Trump’s fans wanted him to “breaks things”, and he did that.
  Unfortunately for the rest us, he didn’t have the know-how, the focus, or the energy, to fix what he broke.  And now it’s up to Biden to fix everything that he broke ... and Biden has a lot to fix.  I hope that Trump, and his radical right Republican sycophants and mob, stay out of the way.

I’m sure that MOST of us feel that Trump does NOT deserve a red carpet and a 21-gun salute.
  And that instead, he deserves a ONE-WAY ticket out of the White House.  And that he deserved his two impeachments.

Unfortunately, our nation could be living in fear of more pro-Trump violence for MANY months to come.
  (And that would be consistent with the “Everything Trump Touches Dies” book.)

I’ve often wondered what Trump and Putin talked about in their private one-on-one meetings, and why Trump had any notes from those meetings destroyed.
  Was Putin was giving him how-to lessons in tyranny?

He couldn't leave in dignity like every other president,  I really wonder how much that unnecessary flight he took air force one this morning cost taxpayers. I have heard it costs approximately  $80,000 per minute to keep that plane in the air, 2 and one half hour flight each way do the math.
