All across red America, Republicans are promoting COVID-19, trashing democracy, and lying with the same feral abandon that the Abominable Showman himself demonstrated lo these many years.
And because Donald Trump declared by feckless fiat that he actually won the 2020 election in a landslide, Georgia decided they’d like to make it a lot easier for the next right-wing proto-tyrant to steal future elections. That could be Trump—or anyone else for that matter, including MyPillow guy Mike Lindell. Imagine being sent to a Jesus reeducation camp and being forced to sleep on that dude’s subpar bedding every night. I’m just warning you ahead of time, because if the last five years have taught us anything, it’s that nothing is too fucking weird for this timeline.
A few years ago I noted that it’s basically impossible to tell the difference between an April Fools’ joke and something Donald Trump has actually said, so I moved we table April Fools’ Day until we could Tide Pod the ocher butt imprint from our societal fabric.
That day is not now, as Republicans have bravely taken up the mantle of whatever the fuck Trump was doing over the past several years.
