Somewhere, Sinclair Lewis is Laughing

Though there is no real basis to credit Lewis with When Fascism Comes To America, It Will Be Wrapped in the Flag and Carrying a Cross, the adage rings true.

I suspect that monsters—of whatever stripe that is Comrade Trump—cannot touch a cross without bursting into flames. And to add some more fuel to the fire (see what I did there?) that was at a speech to the Federation of Independent Businesses and was supposed to be on economic or something, but turned into something more along the lines of the Democrats and Latinos infesting America’s vital juices and what not, and then concluded with the flag hugging.

So I give the performance 3 Sinclair Lewises.

    How can anyone see that and not understand that dear leader is a demented fuckwit? And the soundtrack…beyond creepy.

    A real test was when FatNixon put his hand on the Bible for his inauguration. Or, it could have been a copy of The Art of the Deal.

      He didn’t put his hand on the bible, though, did he. He had a ‘real’ bible (Abe Lincoln’s bible) and then one his dear mum gave him. He only touched the one that his mum gave him, presumably after she had it exorcised so that he could touch the poor wretched thing.

    Well I have no doubt that some of them in his orbit are quite familiar with crosses bursting into flames…

    So, kneeling before the flag is disrespectful but groping and dry humping the flag is not? I just can’t seem to get a grasp of the new etiquette rules.

    Gotta give him credit for recognizing a good photo op, and, er, seizing the opportunity.

    He literally “wraps himself in the flag.” Nauseating.

    “cannot touch a cross without bursting into flames”

    What catches on fire, the cross or tRUmp?

    Once again, it wasn’t what Trump said that made me want to vomit, it was the applause he received from the audience.

    I view the fact that tRump and his cohorts NOT bursting into flame as confirmation that there is no “higher power” – or at least not a benevolent one.

    That’ll be $130,000 please, Michael Avenatti didn’t say. Yet.

    That’s nothing. A real patriot would kiss a Marine.

    Won’t someone please defenestrate the #*%@&$, already? From one of his stupid towers. Our White House isn’t tall enough to create a righteous orange splat on the ground.

    question: was the flag then burned because it had been desecrated by his touch?
