You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t noticed. His verbal bombshells are louder than ever, but Donald J Trump is no longer president of the United States.

By having no constructive response to any of the monumental crises now convulsing America, Trump has abdicated his office. 

He is not governing. He’s golfing, watching cable TV and tweeting.

How has Trump responded to the widespread unrest following the murder in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for minutes as he was handcuffed on the ground?

Trump called the protesters “thugs” and threatened to have them shot. “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” he tweeted, parroting a former Miami police chief whose words spurred race riots in the late 1960s.

On Saturday, he gloated about “the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons” awaiting protesters outside the White House, should they ever break through Secret Service lines. 

In reality, Donald Trump doesn’t run the government of the United States. He doesn’t manage anything

Trump’s response to the last three ghastly months of mounting disease and death has been just as heedless. Since claiming Covid-19 was a “Democratic hoax” and muzzling public health officials, he has punted management of the coronavirus to the states....

We only know about some of the ones who got caught and verbalized their motivation -

President Donald Trump has repeatedly distanced himself from acts of violence in communities across America, dismissing critics who point to his rhetoric as a potential source of inspiration or comfort for anyone acting on even long-held beliefs of bigotry and hate.

"I think my rhetoric brings people together," he said last year, four days after a 21-year-old allegedly posted an anti-immigrant screed online and then allegedly opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, killing 22 and injuring dozens of others.

But a nationwide review conducted by ABC News has identified at least 54 criminal cases where Trump was invoked in direct connection with violent acts, threats of violence or allegations of assault.

After a Latino gas station attendant in Gainesville, Florida, was suddenly punched in the head by a white man, the victim could be heard on surveillance camera recounting the attacker’s own words: “He said, ‘This is for Trump.'" Charges were filed but the victim stopped pursuing them.

When police questioned a Washington state man about his threats to kill a local Syrian-born man, the suspect told police he wanted the victim to "get out of my country," adding, "That’s why I like Trump."

Reviewing police reports and court records, ABC News found that in at least 12 cases perpetrators hailed Trump in the midst or immediate aftermath of physically assaulting innocent victims. In another 18 cases, perpetrators cheered or defended Trump while taunting or threatening others. And in another 10 cases, Trump and his rhetoric were cited in court to explain a defendant's violent or threatening behavior.

Politicians have a responsibility to be civilised but a sociopath/ psychopath will always have a reason to blame others for their moronic behaviour.

Law & Order in Philadelphia, NOW! They are looting stores. Call in our great National Guard like they FINALLY did (thank you President Trump) last night in Minneapolis. Is this what voters want with Sleepy Joe? All Dems!

Self congratulation becomes flagellation when castigation begins...

..and voters have the responsibility to be civilsed and not elect someone president who is a sociopath/psychopath.

How can anyone, especially the self-professed ultra-macho MAGAts, continue to support this sniveling coward?

On this date in 1927, Fred Trump was arrested at a KKK rally that turned into a melee with police.

In case you missed it, yesterday, President Toughguy had peaceful protestors tear-gassed and brutally dispersed from in front the White House so he could power-walk across the street and have his picture taken holding a bible.

 

Video here.

 

Coincidentally, yesterday also marked the 93rd anniversary of Fred Trump Sr.'s arrest for participating in a Klan rally, proving that the turd never falls far from the ass.

Why all this hatred for Donald Trump? Is he the one who killed George Floyd? Is he somehow responsible for the violent "protests" currently sweeping the country?

Nah, we can hate his lying, Constitution-circumventing, sexist, racist, unqualified, disgusting ass without any other reason.

Someone give GerardB a prize for identifying a crime that Trump didn't commit. They're so few and far-between these days.
