Who's to blame now, Donnie?

Trump poured gasoline on an escalating situation in Minneapolis by tweeting "When the looting starts; the shooting starts."

But he forgot how he reacted to the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, six years ago, and who he blamed for the response.

Trump is the POTUS now. According to his logic, the mess is all his fault.

Trump Previously Blamed 'Weak Leadership' in Washington for Ferguson Riots and Looting in 2014

 President Donald Trump blamed "weak leadership" in Washington for the outbreak of rioting and looting in Ferguson, Missouri, six years ago. Trump, now faced with escalating protests in Minneapolis, was repeatedly critical of the Obama administration's handling of the Ferguson riots in August 2014 which were in response to the police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager. At the time, Trump said other countries were laughing at the government's handling of the unrest.

Twitter flags Trump for ‘glorifying violence’ after he says Minneapolis looting will lead to ‘shooting’

"...the Oath Keepers, a right-wing militia group, urged Trump to retract his statement, citing concerns that the tweet could be seen as encouraging the National Guard to “shoot people for stealing.” “This is a disaster,” the group tweeted from their official account. 

“President Trump needs to retract that statement ASAP, stating that he misspoke & did not mean to say that National Guard should shoot people for stealing.” 

 Amid the outcry, Twitter announced early Friday that it had placed a “public interest notice” on Trump’s tweet, noting that the post had violated the platform’s “policies regarding the glorification of violence based on the historical context of the last line, its connection to violence, and the risk it could inspire similar actions today.” 

The label appeared less than three hours after Trump’s tweet was posted."

Donald Trump during overseas protests: 

France: do not kill your protesters. 

Lebanon: do not use violence against protesters. 

Iraq: turn your Internet back. 

Chile: let reporters roam free. 

Iran: stop the killing of your great Iranian people. 

 America: shoot them...

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it. -Martin Luther King Jr.

Remember how the Goopers called President Obama "divisive"?

Yeah. I do.

This is the preznit they admire:

The video that he retweets here opens with “I’ve come to the conclusion that the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat.” A message to the country from the Republican President of the United States.

Never. Not once did President Obama ever pass along such a vicious statement about the GOP, nor would he because he's a man of principle, decency, and honor.

Never, never let the Trump Goopers forget that they supported and admired a man who felt comfortable with and even thanked and retweeted a man who said "the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat."

Just joking? 

Not when the POTUS retweets such a statement. 

Any other American president would have known better than to exploit this kind of divisiveness, but Trump isn't like anyone who's ever been in the WH. He's a gigantic festering pustule on America.

If you're a Trump cultist, 
the one on the left drives you nuts; 
the one on the right makes you happy.

The one on the left is exercising his Constitutional right; the one on the right committed murder.

Modest proposal. Arlington is Arlington because Congress took it from General Lee and built a US military graveyard on his lawn. We should do the same for Covid patients. Bury them with honor on reclaimed Trump golf courses.

Remember when we had a POTUS who comforted the bereaved and sang to them?

I do.

The current embarrassing occupant of the WH says it's a badge of honor to be the president of the country with THE MOST COVID-19 cases. 

 Trump says US topping world virus cases is 'badge of honour'

Lots of Trump trolls visit P.E. on a daily basis and leave ridiculous comments claiming President Obama was the most corrupt president in the history of the U.S. 

I know. They're nuts. And I know they'll continue to visit P.E. because they can't help themselves, so here's a little "Obama versus Trump" for them to see when they come for their daily look at my blog.

This won't change their warped idea of how the two presidents compare with each other, but the truth will stand on it's own, whether they accept it or not.

So here it is and here is why President Barack Obama, a man of decency, intelligence, and class, is so sorely missed during these terrible Trump years:

Pastor Donald orders states open places of worship to get more people infected.

With no authority to do so, President Inject Disinfectants ordered states to reopen places of worship.
He hasn't figured this simple truth; no president can override a governor's orders on a state level health emergency. 

Remember the days when Republicans stood for the constitutionally mandated powers of the states? Remember the days when we actually had a president who not only read the Constitution, but who once taught classes about it

He has no authority to do this.

So responsible state governors will just ignore the idiot and keep their citizens alive.

This, of course, is nothing more than culture war pandering.

Does Trump truly have a death wish for his Evangelical followers?

It seems he does.

The question is: Will President Inject Disinfectants be attending church on Sunday?

or too elephantinely stupid to know the difference between actual ballots and ballot applications.

Vote the nincompoop OUT! in November.

The good people of America deserve better than this toxic pile of lies, cheating, and deliberate disinformation.

 Nevada Gov. Sisolak: "For the President to threaten federal funding in the midst of a pandemic over a state exercising its authority to run elections in a safe and legal manner is inappropriate and outrageous." 

This is one of those lies that'll be lost in the history books because there aren't enough pages. But it's menacing in this moment. The president is spreading egregiously false information that will incite his base and fuel talk of a rigged election.

President Chaos

"92,000 Americans dead 
1.5 million infected and 
36 million out of work 

because YOU BELIEVED CHINA when they told you everything was hunky dory. 

YOU TWEETED ABOUT IT. and then you went golfing and held nazi rallies. what kind of presidential malpractice is that?" --J.T.

May 20,2020:
Some wacko in China just released a statement blaming everybody other than China for the Virus which has now killed hundreds of thousands of people. Please explain to this dope that it was the “incompetence of China”, and nothing else, that did this mass Worldwide killing!

Donald J. Trump

China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!
