4 years of malice and spite as a Presidential reign of madness.
30 000 lies told by one man creates a legacy of deceit and an empire of conspiracy that corrodes the very heart of a democracy.
Trump thankfully has been vanquished and hopefully Republicans in the Senate seize this impeachment opportunity to exile him from the body politic forever because his toxic influence will stain America for a generation.
The sooner America starts excommunication of Trumpism, the sooner it can heal from the trauma of this orange lunatic.
Let’s try and sum up his repugnance and damage in a binary list of winners and losers.
Nascar Fascism – Did you listen to the Orange Lives Matter Insurrectionists? 50% of them sounded like they thought the earth was flat while the other 50% sounded like they thought dinosaurs were a hoax. These are not smart people. Nascar Fascism is the best way to describe these lunatics, the kind of people who turn up at Nascar to watch cars go round and round and round in the hope of a crash. Their intelligence stunted by the fumes, these stormtroopers of fascism are cruel but very simple. Unfortunately there are fucking millions of them and they don’t have the capacity to learn. They will believe Trump had the election stolen until they die from an opioid overdose. This is the driving force inside the Republicans now.
Social Media Disinformation – You can’t attract that many stupid people without a great propaganda machine and Facebook’s algorithms are the new nicotine, booze and meth all rolled into one for addictiveness. It’s been the greatest PSYOP ever created, fuelling the most neurotic and paranoid aspects of our humanity and whipping us up into a toxic polarisation of debate that makes the Gender Critical Feminist and Trans Ally death match look positively charming.
Apartheid Israel – Haven’t they done well under Trump? More cleansing of Palestinian settlements, more selling out Palestinian rights for the common enemy in Iran and reducing any meaningful two state process into a joke.
Amanda Gorman – If there was one bright moment of hope, it came in the immediate aftermath of Trump with the words of a young black female poet. The Universe paused and the gravity of her insight made the present bloom in ways we had feared were dead after Trump. Her truth managed to wipe his hate in 5 minutes. I just want to live in those words and close the door behind me.
Putin – How unbelievable has the Trump win been for Putin these past 4 years? A level of chaos Russia couldn’t have dreamed of. They will already be scouting out the next corrupt billionaire to inspire.
Identity Politics & Cancel Culture – In the end Trump warped Identity Politics to create class chaos. Jaw-droppingly more people voted for Trump in 2020 than 2016, because Cancel Culture by the woke drives those they cancel straight into the arms of our political enemies. The Culture War will replace actual ideological differences and the Right will exploit it mercilessly.
Biden – Americans chose the emotional support labrador of Biden over the revolution of Bernie because after 4 years of the Trump trauma, Americans didn’t want more fighting, they wanted a hug. Biden is that hug.
Katy Perry Fireworks Inauguration Song – They really do know how to put on a performance don’t they? Perry singing Firework as the fireworks went off was just complex enough of a narrative twist for most viewers of The Apprentice to appreciate.
Foo Fighters Inauguration Performance – You can trust Dave to bring a performance that resonates with Gen Xers and comforts us that while those fucking Boomers are never dying so we can’t advance our own careers and the fucking Millennials are micro aggression policing puritans you’d never want to do drugs with, Dave will always love us. Thank you Mr Grohl.
Black Lives Matter & White Feminism matters more – Diversity was the strength behind finally defeating Trump and the Union is stronger for replacing mediocre and talentless white men. True equality will be here when mediocre people of colour and women can gain leadership roles with the ease of basic honkies. With the changing demographics of America, diversity is the future and the Republicans are not.
Working Class Pain – The Democrats had stopped listening to the pain of the working classes because the working classes kept screaming about the neoliberal economic model the Democrats had sold out to long ago. Their support of Trump enabled that economic pain to be articulated as naked rage. Now the Democrats are frightened of it, they might do something about it.
Fox News – The despicable manner in which these media maggots fed the rot of Trump’s lies with the glee of a meth dealer peddling to children should shame every single staff member from the on air Joseph Goebbels wannabes, to the corporate owners to the producers, cameramen, writers, journalists down to the doormen. There is no honour here, Fox’s enabling of Trump leaves them with all the ethical integrity of Nazi plunder. Trump turning on them at the end is too beautiful for words.
The Military Industrial Complex – When Trump saw bombs dropping, all he could see were dollar signs. His aversion to starting a new war was driven from a belief that it’s a ferocious waste of money and Trump cares more about money than anything else. This has stymied the Military Industrial Complex and seeing as America is an industry built upon war mongering, not invading anyone to open up new markets for American military hardware at the expense of contracts going to Russia or China has created an itch the Military Industrial Complex urgently needs scratching. Expect to hear about a sudden new conflict that Biden simply must have boots on the ground for some faux human rights crisis that an American corporation has probably had a hand in.
China – By naming and shaming China’s genocide and war crime against the Uighur people, China has been recast from economic powerhouse who has benign global designs to a Murderous Communist Regime drenched in blood. China won Trump’s trade battle but lost the PR war and with more investigations highlighting China’s role in being deceitful over Covid, China’s use of soft power to influence the world is forever corrupted.
America – Trump’s lack of leadership on all of the major issues confronting humanity has destroyed American Exceptionalism while pretending to empower it. America’s lack of criticism against Authoritarian regimes has set back the cause of Democracy and made America a gauche global joke with no punchline.
400 000 Covid dead – The American Health system is a septic social wound that simply can’t stop a pandemic because the profit margin is more important than the common good. This is Corporate Sociopathy at its most venal. The manner in which Trump politicised mask wearing is the greatest intellectual description since the burning of the Library at Alexandria.
American Plutocracy –The Billionaires who bankrolled Trump’s worst angels almost got their Fascist Plutocracy. They know the demographics are turning on them, expect them to become even more vile and toxic.
Qanon – These fucking clowns. Jesus wept. It’s like a panel of lepers judging a beauty competition. These lunatics couldn’t get laid at a monkey brothel wearing banana suits. It doesn’t look like the semen that met their mothers egg had a tail, is this an evolutionary throwback? The intellectual equivalence of mouth breathing? Fuck them and their lunatic crazy satanic cult robbing Trump of the election bullshit. These people fear eclipses and burn books. Never, ever, ever stop mocking them.
Climate Crisis – While the planet burned, Trump fiddled. His inaction has cost the West any leadership and probably cost the planet immeasurably.
The reason liberals in America hate Trump so much is because as a bloated narcissist secreting mass produced selfishness masquerading as exceptionalism, Trump actually represents America perfectly!
The grotesque fake tan, fast food gaucheness, the gleeful ignorance, the casual violence and exported malice.
Trump is America.
Boasting, wasteful, frightening and arrogant.
America is Trump.
Dangerous, self serving, intellectually barren, sexist and racist.
Trump is America.
Make America Great Again was a call to the era of the white supremacist’s noose and the feral rabid mob. His demented followers were manipulated into self-defeating rage by an economic system that was always rigged against them.
Trump leaves America in post traumatic stress.
Weakened, frightened and self tortured.
An empire of orange conspiracy deceit built upon the worst angels of our nature is his malignant and broken legacy.
