Ever defiant, “president” Donald Trump has vowed to travel to Kenosha, WI, even though the people in charge have asked him not to come. Politico reported that Governor Tony Evers requested that Trump stay away because Evers and other leaders “are concerned about what your presence will mean for Kenosha and our state. I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing. I am concerned your presence will only delay our work to overcome division and move forward together.” Just like virtually everyone else, Evers is acknowledging that Trump is the problem not the solution.
Trump, on the other hand, sees what he wants to see, truth be damned. He claimed that since he sent the National Guard to Kenosha, things have calmed down. Wrong. It was Evers who called the National Guard and deployed them to Kenosha. Evers has demonstrated that he is in control, but Trump does what he usually does—take credit for someone else’s work. There are two things that Trump has proven to be good at: taking credit and supporting the wrong side.
Politico also reported on recent activities in Portland. Protestors were confronted by a caravan of pro-Trump protestors, who came armed with paintball guns and chemical irritants of some type. The protestors fought back by throwing things at them. These pro-Trump protestors are members of Patriot Prayer, and it is not the first time they have insinuated themselves into Portland protests. These counter-protests only make things worse. How did “president” Trump react? He tweeted out that these losers are “GREAT PATRIOTS!” Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said in a news conference: “Do you seriously wonder, Mr. President, why this is the first time in decades that American has seen this level of violence?” Trump’s response? He called Wheeler “wacky,” “fool,” “dummy,” and “weak and pathetic.” Yeah, this is how a president of the United States should be conducting himself. Not. Trump is the wacky, dumb, weak, pathetic fool.
Trump visiting Kenosha is a horrible idea. Unlike Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who spoke with Jacob Blake’s family for hours, Trump can bring no empathy, no honesty, and nothing positive. In speaking with Biden and Harris, Blake’s father said that they brought “love, admiration, and caring” in the call as reported by the Chicago Sun Times. Mr. Blake said that all Biden did was “offer his support” and that he was “100% real.”
There is nothing real about “president” Trump. He cares about nothing and no one but winning. Even his outgoing staunchest supporter Kellyanne Conway said that “violence and chaos is good for Trump’s reelection,” Business Insider reported. In her twisted mind, chaos and violence show who is better at dealing with these issues from a law and order perspective. If all this were not so serious, you might laugh. Trump is not good at dealing with violence and chaos; he is good at creating it. Now, crawl back into your bunker and let a real man handle bringing citizens of the U.S. back together.
