Nurse the Hate: Comrade Trump's Phone

Would it be possible for someone to get Donald Trump’s phone out of his hand?  There are drunk college kids that have sent less regrettable communication than Trump’s barrage after the horrible terrorist attacks in London last weekend.  The major difference between Trump scolding the Mayor of London two seconds after the incident and a hungover young man that sees he sent a 3:03am text the night before saying “Kristina, I know I pretend I don’t care about you, but you are all I think about and I cry every night because I miss you.  Please come back.” is that at least that young man knows his message was ill-advised.   Donald Trump is so remarkably tone deaf it boggles the imagination.  His lack of finesse and empathy is stunning for a human being, much less the symbol of our nation.

I was in England last month and walked that bridge, that marketplace.  It is filled with normal families and people going about their lives.  I find that when I have been someplace where a tragic event has happened it becomes more real, and not just a segment on TV.  Those people that were attacked could have been any of us.  It’s hard to wrap your head around the mindset of someone that would do this.  Trump is unfit for this office.  To shift within moments of noting the injustice and pointlessness of the terrorist action to pick a fight with the Mayor of London and then toss the gun lobby a bone is horribly embarrassing for all Americans.  Trump is like that roommate you had in college that showed up at the party, got drunk on keg beer, and then started making lewd sexist comments to your female party guests while he’s smiling like he’s a total stitch.  Then the next day when you say, “Hey, Donald…  you were being a real asshole last night.  The girls were totally offended by what you said and left.”, he counters with “Those bitches are too sensitive.  Fuck them.” as he walks away in a backward baseball cap.  When Trump shows up somewhere eyes reflexively roll and the words “Oh shit…” come out of everyone’s mouth.  He is every asshole at every frat party.

How can we continue like this?  The administration is obviously covering up something in regards to Russia.  Those creeps are guilty of something.  Stupidity probably.  Dozens of government positions remain unfilled as no one with any sense wants to be associated with this radioactive crew.  Trump pulls out of the Paris Agreement for no discernible reason except to placate his shrinking base and the Koch Brothers.  Let’s pretend there isn’t a problem and build coal burning cars.  Let’s bring back typewriter factory jobs!  VCR factories!  Whaling!  Trump has created a void in world leadership that China is rushing to fill.  Let’s be clear.  That man is a reality TV show star and a con man, not a leader.  He is remarkably incurious.  Trump’s inability to grasp complex issues has left us all sitting in the backseat of a car driven by a dipshit.  The worst part is that we are only five months in.  Just wait until he launches a war with North Korea as a distraction when the Russia investigation gets hot.  That will be a hoot.

Ultimately there is nothing I can do about it.  As per a conversation I had with a friend last night who stated “I want to do something but what?  March around with a sign?  This is all bullshit.”.  In a world gone mad, the key is to maintain your own sanity.  I love the guy in the picture.  There he is fleeing a group of knife wielding kooks near London Bridge and he’s got his pint in hand.  Not a drop spilled.  Carry on mate.  I’m with you.

How can "we" continue like this?
You're right Greg, politically incorrect tweets are worse than now regular stabbings and vehicular murders by members of the religion of peace.

The British people have lost their minds and testicles. Continue importing people from a religion where the penalty for being gay or leaving the religion are death, what could possibly go wrong?

Britain will be unrecognizable in 30 years, glad you have your fond memories. You'll need them.

Britain isn't "importing" people. These are citizens as a result of when the sun never set on the British Empire. You can't deport people with views that "might" lead to violence. Where do you deport them to? I have no clue how that problem is solved while maintaining the civil liberties that are part of the culture.

Trump is a fool. It's a complicated world that our leader isn't able to comprehend because he lacks the background, education, and intellectual curiosity to learn. The real issues of terrorism don't excuse our president from being inept in his actions.
