Now they’ve done it

Wednesday, August 5th, 2020

Facebook had the temerity to remove one of his majesty’s posts. Facebook said it was in violation of the policy prohibiting distribution of false or misleading information about the COVID-19 pandemic that could cause injury or death to others.

It contained a false statement that children are immune or very unlikely to get infected with COVID.

His majesty is pushing for the reopening of schools so parents can get back to their low paying jobs with the schools as babysitters.

Remember his majesty and the Republicans don’t care if your family line dies out from the pandemic as long as everyone gets back to work and his majesty gets another four years in the White House at the trough.

Twitter went so far as to lock the trump campaign account temporarily for the same misinformation. Said a mouthpiece Courtney Parella, a spokesperson for the Trump campaign, in response to the Facebook removal. “Another day, another display of Silicon Valley’s flagrant bias against this President, where the rules are only enforced in one direction. Social media companies are not the arbiters of truth.”

Poor baby.

A piece of the action

His majesty has stated that a substantial part of the proceeds from the sale of TikTok will go to the US Treasury on the basis that “we made the deal possible”.

Smells like extortion. A cut for the mob? But who would pay? Microsoft? Why? What legal basis does he have for this claim?

Maybe he figures his gang will be able to skim off the top if he can get the dollars in the treasury.

On another note, his majesty came out in favor of mail-in balloting for the state of Florida at the request of Florida Republicans. He claims now it will be safe because they stopped two attempts by the Democrats to change the system. So it’s safe to vote by mail in Florida only.

And his majesty did not visit Rep. Lewis as he lay in state or attend his funeral because Lewis did not go to his majesty’s inauguration or any of his state of the union speeches. I guess his majesty showed him. What a five year old.

And he has turned on his one remaining medical expert on his coronavirus task force. Dr. Birx is now facing his wrath for not making him look good and saying what a great job he’s doing. So needy, so sad.

Got any beef jerky?

Seeking to distract America from his long list of shortcomings, his majesty jumped into the middle of a news item from Australia. It was about an outbreak and the government response in Victoria and Melbourne.

He should have either offered condolences or help. In lieu of that, he should have kept his mouth shut.

‘Big China Virus breakouts all over the World, including nations which were thought to have done a great job,’ he wrote.

‘The Fake News doesn’t report this. USA will be stronger than ever before, and soon!’

Australia’s news media dismissed him as a poor leader who’s rants should be ignored.

Trump, during the tweet storm, deflected blame for the coronavirus pandemic to China as polls show Americans do not approve of his handling of national crises – including the COVID-19 outbreak

The would has his number. Now we’ll see if America has it too.

Watch the vein throb

On his majesty’s forehead under the comb over. It almost popped when he got wind of Dr. Fauci’s testimony to Congress. Fauci offered one reason for the European Union’s lower COVID numbers in that they were better prepared.

His majesty immediately tweeted WRONG! According to him, the USA numbers are bad because we do more testing than anybody because we have the greatest testing. He wants to cut testing or at least make you pay for it.

He is a thoroughly dangerous man.

They still think we all should just bite the bullet and go back to pre-COVID life as if it did not exist. Your children and family will be on the front line. Not a sane man at all.

Closer to home, el Guv has taken a page from his majesty’s playbook. el Guv is passing responsibility on exposure down to you. He won’t mandate masks but he recommends that you use one. And if you get sick, we told you so. Just can’t seem to grow a pair.

And the mayor of Anchorage has re-imposed restrictions on bars and restaurants while they try to figure out school reopening safely. Not likely.

The biggest concern …

His majesty’s and the Republicans overriding concern during the pandemic has always been who is going to pay for it.

The tests, the economic fallout, and medical treatments all have a price tag. His majesty first attempted to pass the buck to the governors but there was pushback. Then responsibility was pushed on the individual with implied consent and liability protections on bidness. His majesty thinks he has an out now.

China will pay.

That explains why his majesty and the Republicans passed the multi trillion dollar crisis programs. They had no plan to pay for it. Maybe that’s why he tried to sneak in funds for a new FBI headquarters building. To combat perceived the Chinese infiltration in the USA.

Why is he still walking around free?
