Apart from having to hide in the bunker this evening, how convenient for you, Bronx Colors user, that the media has been under fire for two days and unable to hold you accountable.
How convenient for you the media and public have changed the subject to this country’s original sin, racism.
So convenient it’s almost as if the distraction was organized.
So convenient the riot gear purchased by the feds earlier this year may have found a good use, depending on how it was distributed when received.*
What a pity personal protection equipment for the entire American health care system hadn’t been ordered at the same time the riot gear was purchased. We’ll chalk that up to another one of your gross failings.
The dust will eventually settle on the streets, the tear gas will drift away, the arrested will pay bail and head home.
And the subject will return to your gross failings because they continue to mount every day. We’ll grant you that much: your malignant neglect of your role as president to protect and defend the Constitution and the people who live within its reach is greater than that of any American president in history and grows apace.
Being a malignant narcissist, though, I’m sure this will only make you feel like a victim.
You’d be better off staying in your bunker, whether below the White House or on one of your goddamned golf courses. It would cost this country fewer lives if you spent the rest of your term at one of your resorts, tooling around in a taxpayer-rented golf cart, chasing a little white ball.
