This post started its life as a comment on Fandango’s site called Delusional. (I hope I got those URLs right!) The topic was a discussion about Trump’s ability to shoot someone on 5th Avenue in NYC. One member actually had the audacity to say “It depends on what he [the victim] was doing.”
It was that point at which my head exploded just before I felt my IQ drop a good 40 points. You know how when you fly and there’s some turbulence you get that falling feeling in your stomach? Yeah – that’s what losing 40 IQ points feel like.
In my comment, I ask how these people really feel that way, and urged me to require a minimum IQ score to vote. But I digress.
[Regarding lack of action by #GOP. ] That’s what I cannot fathom. It simply boggles my mind. Yes, #LiarInChief has his base and caters to those who ARE base but moderate Republicans have been flipping in droves. I think the flip machine over-heated after one of his lies- which one I don’t know – too many to follow. His true base is south of 30% and the rest that voted for him are defecting as fast as they can.
Most voted “No” to HC as opposed to vote FOR trump. Semantics? Perhaps, but I don’t think so. He can’t win in 2020 with only 30% of the population.
I simply cannot understand the fear the #GOP has of him. What are they so afraid of??? Why do they allow such distain of the Constitution to continue on and ad infamtom (no, I can’t spell it but you get the gist. I hope.) Just the #emoloments clause alone should be enough to impeach and remove.
But the scarier part? If he’s removed, we get Pence. Let that sink in a moment. I think even the GOP were surprised Trump lasted this long as I think it’s the original game plan. Get someone like Trump in there to take the fall which would allow a Pence presidentially.
It’s the perfect scheme. GOP knows Pence couldn’t win against HC bc of his raw right beliefs. Ex: he won’t have a business dinner with a female colleague unless his wife’s presence. Perfect picture of white male privilege. As a woman, there’s no way I could advance in my career if I had to abide by those rules. But there’s a very large number of people that do- they are called Fundamental Christians. And there are a LOT of them. And they vote.
When compared to the incredible insanity of Trump, Pence would feel like a breath of fresh (cough, cough) air. He comes across as the very image of a pious man. Calm, cool, collected…and with every intention of driving women out of the job market so they stay home as a baby making machine. Who would have all brown people tossed on a boat to got to “I don’t give a shit just get them out” island.
He would support book burning (like the Harry Potter series bc it promotes evil wizards 🙄) and would instead require the teaching of the Bible. Cause you know that if you add an “ism” at the end of a word, it becomes a science. Like ohh…creationism? Yea, still not a science. Want your kid to learn the Bible? Have him or her read it every night. After the science homework is done.
Equal rights for women? Phishaw – women don’t deserve equal protection under the law. If they would just do as they are told, they wouldn’t be going out in that dress to get herself raped. See how I did that? Called victim blaming and the current administration is quite good at it.
Abortion only for rape, incest or danger for the mother? How, exactly, is that gonna work cause I can’t seem to get anyone to tell me. Does a woman have to file a police report and go through the horrible rape kit exam. Is the 13 year old girl going to tell on daddy? To whom? (Well, you know how flirtatious little girls can be. See- more victim blaming.) Imagine the impact on real rape victims if to get an abortion, you just have to file a police report. Thinking about that, WHEN should she make the report. See how messy that bag of sperms oops I meant worms, could get?
I can solve the “abortion problem” in 1 easy step. Have all boys get reversible vasectomies for their 10th birthday. No swimmers, no abortion. Everyone wins. Except we live in a hyper-masculine culture where men and their little swimmers must be protected.
But I digress, again. The bottom line is that I believe that the #LiarInChief was supposed to be out already so Pence could step up to everyone’s relief. Or should I say to the relief of white males.
Thanks to Fantango for this steal!
