Prznint Stupid gave a speech last night —maybe you heard about it— in which he condemned, Mao-like, a “left-wing cultural revolution.”
President Donald Trump on Friday issued a fiery condemnation of a “left-wing cultural revolution” he said is mounting a “radical assault” on American democracy in a speech steeped in historical hyperbole delivered against the stunning backdrop of Mount Rushmore on the observed Fourth of July.
“Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities,” Trump said. “They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive.”
Actually, Hair Füror, we think that you are weak and soft, and submissive… to Russia.
Anyway, it was not the uplifting thoughts and words that one goes looking for on a national holiday, especially one during a pandemic in which the US is leading the world in deaths, you know, due to Trump’s complete incompetence and abject failure.
It was Jason Miller’s American Carnage 2, a speech that we hope derp Füror does not get to give in 2021 January.
