Today’s News Synopsis, Because Enough Already

Update: Biden has been declared winner!

President-Elect Biden gives birth to a calming effect that lulls me into a peacefulness that has become unnatural. I have taken time to celebrate the sun rising through the fog, but I’ve advanced to worry about Trump’s lame-duck period. I’d like to know if there are there any responsible adults monitoring the ultimate loser to ensure he doesn’t destroy the planet on his way out of office.

Trump us still tweeting lies.

Trump has built an eight-foot concrete wall around the White House, and according to the following Vanity Fair article he plans to barricade himself in the White House and will refuse to come out now if Biden wins, (which he has!) I’d feel better if they put him in a cage down there and cut off his access to the internet and telephones.

I’m trying to find a word to replace ‘alarming’ because I’ve overused it recently. The following news today is disquieting, disturbing, distressing, makes me uneasy, it has to be alarming: Since the election, Trump has fired three agency leaders who oversee the nuclear weapons stockpile, electricity, and natural gas regulation, and overseas aid. What is going on?

I have come to respect Representative Eric Swalwell since he stepped down from his presidential run. He isn’t afraid to use his platform to draw attention to information that might otherwise be swept under the rug. You may remember during Trump’s impeachment proceedings Swalwell outed Representative Devin Nunez for his part in the Ukrainian blackmail plot. Now Swalwell has called for the creation of presidential crimes commission to investigate Trump when he leaves office. Good news. Let’s do it!

Fun Facts:

  • Vice President Mike Pence, has been soliciting money for a legal defense fund. Hahaha. Cough.
  • The media has suddenly started cutting off Trump’s press conferences and calling out his lies in real-time. Finally.

Not Fun Facts:

  • Steve Bannon, a former Trump advisor, has been kicked off Twitter because he said Virologist Anthony Fauci should be beheaded. Dr. Fauci stood next to Trump, and after Trump lied about the pandemic he’d hand the mic over to Fauci who told the truth about COVID19. That made him a target for Trump’s rants. Fauci and his family have received death threats and have been heavily guarded for several months. Why isn’t anyone other than Twitter responding to Bannon?
  • Karma is busy:

    • Trump sycophant Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has tested positive for Covid19.
    • Remember when Florida Representative Matt (DUI) Gaetz wore a gas mask on the House floor during the vote on a coronavirus response package. Well, it was disclosed today that he has the virus. Maybe his dad can get him out of this too.

    Thank you, South Carolina— for nothing. Recently re-elected Senator from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham, the miserable excuse for a public servant, said the following to women: ‘There’s a place for you in America’ if you ‘follow traditional family structure’.

    Oh yes, he did. Hold me back…

    The internet is forever.

    Since Election Day, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has been busy deleting tweets. Why? Perhaps she’s realized no one will pay her fines for violating the Hatch act.

        1. On the other hand, he might continue hiding in the White House, gorging himself on fast food and be a nervous wreck. I thought it would be a good idea to put the possibility of a coup on top of the table. It looked likely to me yesterday. We should probably picnic today. but never-the-less not get too complacent…

        2. I think when Pompeo made his comment the threat level went up a couple of notches. Trump is an idiot, but he’s not working alone.
          I do fantasize about the day he eats his last hamburger… He is in decline, but his conspirators would likely prop him up like the corpse from ”Weekend at Bernie’s” and carry on as if nothing changed.

    1. At last after 4 years of a true clown inhabiting the White House, Joe Biden will be in it on January 20, 2021 and we will see the last of Trump and his hangers on, especially his rich frat boy sons and the rest of the grifters.
      Joe Biden looks like he has a very good agenda but has a real struggle with the chieft GOP turn McConnell still esconced as leader of the Senate majority – if he was replaced, I think there could be more cooperation between the two parties on key initiatives.
      The nicest thing will not be having to listen to Trump’s voice on the news. Joe Biden has the experience from the 2008 financial crisis to combat the coronavirus and get America back on track. Go Joe! He has the real luck of the Irish.
