A weird thing happened this week. Other than that last week was “Peak Death Week.” (Sorry, I didn’t get anybody a card).
For the first time ever I didn’t immediately mute my TV when the Covidiot-in-chief comes on to do the daily “5 O’clock Follies” and spend two-hours doing what he normally would do at his hate-filled rallies.
Up until now I, like most folks, would just scream at the TV.
THAT’S A LIE!
THAT’S A BIGGER LIE!!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!
WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?????
Then I just muted the sound till the real news came back on.
I have been livid that the news networks all take these propaganda briefings in full. It’s just him campaigning. Doesn’t Biden get equal time? Now, the cable networks, except for Fox of course, routinely break away to fact check the verbal diarrhea that spews forth from everybody on the podium except for Dr. Fauci.
But this week it changed. I suddenly remembered a funny meme that my cousin Jackie sent me a few weeks ago. It was a sign that said:
“When someone tells you to ‘Keep Talking’ and you realize what he’s really saying is ‘You Better Shut the Fuck Up Right Now!”
She added a comment “That was Uncle Tom’s go-to move.” That was my Dad. I laughed for almost ten minutes when I read that. Because it was so true. When my brother and I were kids and we were trying to talk ourselves out of whatever thing we did that we shouldn’t have, he would just look at us for a long moment and say
“Go on, keep talking.”
At that point, we’d realize we’d been busted and we would shut the fuck up.
That’s just what is happening with these propaganda rallies. He is just playing to his base like he does in his cult rallies. The only problem is that everybody is watching. His cult followers will believe anything and everything that he says. But the rest of the country and the rest of the world are all screaming at their TVs. His utter madness, his utter contempt for human life, his unimaginable stupidity, his utter lack of empathy is being shoved down the world’s throat every Goddamned day. I think the democrats are being smart. Let him keep talking.
He says he has the absolute right to open the country even though he doesn’t
He says “I take no responsibility” for any of the mess we’re in.
He says he has absolute power. He doesn’t
“The testing is going just fine.” It’s not.
“We have one case, soon it will be none.” We didn’t. It wasn’t
“It will be gone by April.” Hmmm. Last week was peak death week. Well, in New York at least. This week, it’s Massachusetts surging.
So, for the first time, I actually listened to him. For a few minutes. Until I threw up in my mouth a little. I still mute the TV for most of the Follies. But now, as I watch I keep hearing my dad.
Go on, keep talking.
