Yesterday, Hair Füror creeped out of the safety of his bunker
saw his shadow and now we’re gonna have 6 more weeks of riots and announced from the Rose Garden that he is “mobilizing all available federal resources, civilian and military” to stop violent protests across the country. He accused “professional anarchists, looters, criminals, antifa and others” whose actions have “gripped” the nation.
It was, of course, a lie:
And then Lord Damp Nut, thus having made his first public address on the protests against police brutality, had the police tear-gas (is too a vurb!) peaceful protestors in the park opposite the White House so he could walk to a boarded-up church (that he doesn’t attend) with a Bible (that he hasn’t read) for a photo-op of him not knowing how to hold a book.
It was a jarring scene as police —in the nation’s capital— forcefully cleared the Yutes of Today gathered legally in a public park on a sunny evening, all of it on live teevee.
Which brought this reaction from the Episcopals who run the joint:
and the official version:
Axios morning email thingie tell us that Opinions Differ!
Not everyone in the White House was thrilled with the church photo op.
- One senior aide was exuberantly telling friends the photograph of him holding a Bible in front of the church that had been attacked by vandals was an “iconic” moment for the president.
- But a senior White House official told Axios that when they saw the tear gas clearing the crowd for Trump to walk to the church with his entourage: “I’ve never been more ashamed. I’m really honestly disgusted. I’m sick to my stomach. And they’re all celebrating it. They’re very very proud of themselves.”
Previously in morning, Hair Füror called his boss, Vladimir Putin, during which they discussed the possibility of Russia attending the G7 summit. It’s unclear whether they discussed the protests, but the call preceded Trump’s teleconference with governors during which Trump said that Minnesota had become “a laughingstock all over the world,” and then passed on Vlad’s advice as if it were his own to the governors:
Two points about using the military on civilians:
- To deploy U.S. active-duty personnel to conduct law enforcement on American soil, the president must invoke the 1807 Insurrection Act. It has been used several times in U.S. history, including by President George H.W. Bush during the 1992 Los Angeles Riots.
- He didn’t invoke it.
Legal experts say the president has the authority under the Insurrection Act of 1807 to dispatch the military to states that are unable to put down an insurrection or are defying federal law, AP explains.
- Presidents have sent the military to Southern states to ensure desegregation of schools, to protect civil rights in the 1950s and 1960s, and to L.A. in 1992 to quell riots after the acquittal of officers in the Rodney King case. [Corrected]
So here’s where we are: Everything is terrible, and with an on-going pandemic and economic crisis, the lights are off in the White House, the prznint is in a bunker taking calls from Russia. Hair Füror cannot and will not unify the country because he is only beholden to Possum Hollar, so instead he’s calling for more brutality, especially since he believes it will only hurt communities of color and the damn Libs. Don’t expect the GOP to stop him, either. Sen. Tom Cotton was calling for air strikes on Minneapolis, true fact!
Lord Damp Nut is inflaming the situation and he is making the case for us: he is incompetent and must not be reelected. There’s no sitting on the fence when the fence is on fire.
If someone tells you that they still don’t know how they are gonna vote, it means that they are ashamed to be voting for him. Drop that person like a hot rock.
In conclusion, we’re gonna need a bigger lamp post.
