You are literally NOT safe in Donald Trump's America; we have to flip the script

4 min read

Somehow I don’t remember the continual civil unrest when Joe Biden was vice president. I don’t remember a thousand people dying every day from a raging, out-of-control pandemic.

JESUS POGO-HOPPING CHRIST, THIS IS DONALD TRUMP’S AMERICA! He is overseeing all this carnage! How can we let him beat Joe Biden over the head with it?


AMY KLOBUCHAR: “I have long condemned looting, violence, threats, that’s not peaceful protests. And I don’t care who’s engaging in it, you condemn it. And of course Joe Biden has clearly condemned it. But let’s step back. This isn’t just happening in one place, it is happening all over the country. It is happening under Donald Trump’s watch. What is going on, we have innocent people like George Floyd shot by police. We have what happened in Kenosha. And then we have a president that literally stands on the people’s lawn, in violation of the Hatch Act, stands on the lawn with a bunch of pageantry and a bunch of fancy clothes with arias playing from the balcony and says, ‘Oh, do you want to be more safe?’ We are not safe in Donald Trump’s America. Not only have we seen an increase in hate crimes, not only have we seen increases in crime, but we have seen 3,600 people die during the Republican Convention, Jonathan.  Now over 180,000 people that died from this coronavirus.”

You are not safe …

Yes, we are dying because of Donald Trump’s incompetence, but also because Republicans have fought tooth and nail against a more efficient and equitable health care system.

You are NOT SAFE when Donald Trump refuses to condemn — and, in fact, chooses to elevate — gun-wielding maniacs who are spoiling for a fight.

You are not safe when MAGAs pour into your city, with the tacit approval of Donald Trump, looking to create more disruption:

You are not safe when Trump’s media praetorian guards coddle murderers:

And no, you are not safe when a racist pr*sident seeks to divide us along racial lines.

Donald Trump infamously said, during his ipecac syrup inauguration speech, that “this American carnage stops right here and stops right now.” And yet here we are.

I’m willing to believe Donald Trump doesn’t know he’s president, because I don’t see a whole lot of lucidity in those delirious, ragey, sundowning eyes, but he is. Unfortunately. We’re going to let him bludgeon Joe Biden with all the bullshit that’s going down on his watch?

No fucking way.

Support Joe. This is a fight for America’s heart and soul, and we have to win.
