Every four years pundits expatiate on the unwholesome acceleration of nastiness to come in the imminent presidential contest. The year 2020 should put an end to those predictive briefings, since Donald Trump will transcend mere nastiness and forever astride the twin peaks of ultimate boorishness and crowning obscenity.
In short, he’ll leave no new vulgarities to conquer.
At one of his many Bund rallies for the unibrow crowd Thuisday night, this one in Minneapolis, “the president” of the United States bellowed that his principal opponent “was never considered smart,” “was never considered a good senator,” and “was only a good vice president because he knew how to kiss Barack Obama’s ass.”
The Times reports that this sickening, unprecedented vitriol in a presidential race “drew huge roars of approval from the crowd.”
I’ve always wondered what it would have been like to live through Hitler’s speechifying era of political debauchery and mass turpitude. I needn’t wonder any longer.
Of the U.S. Speaker of the House, “she’s either really stupid or she’s really lost it — or maybe there’s a certain dishonesty in there,” said the little grifter and mammoth mouth.
Of Rep. Ilhan Omar, who represents Minneapolis and, unlike Trump, has overcome immense obstacles in life, she’s an incestuous, “America-hating socialist,” he said.
And of the city’s mayor, Jacob Frey, he’s “rotten,” howled Trump — simply because the fiscally responsible Democratic mayor wants the fiscally reckless Republican president to pay his share of added security costs for his fascist rally.
Any polls that reveal the electorate’s mounting approval for impeachment or cast Trump negatively to any degree are, of course, “crooked.”
And on the same day he had met with Chinese trade negotiators who could help to reduce the financial burden that Trump has imposed on American consumers via his vastly ill-advised tariffs, he yammered that “the U.S.A. is the toughest nation to deal with, because we’re dealing with some very sick and deranged people.”
Last, let it not be said that this president ever overlooked an opportunity to indict the opposition for the crimes he’s guilty of.
“From Day 1, the wretched Washington swamp” — meaning Democrats — “has been trying to nullify the results of a truly great and democratic election,” thundered Trump. “They want to erase your vote like it never existed; they want to erase your voice, and they want to erase your future.”
He added, in his only truthful statement of the night, that “we’re in a struggle for the survival of democracy in America” … and human decency … and traditional institutions … and the rule of law.
