Trump: A Con Man Without Crowds is Forced to Face Reality

Good Day World!

It's already ugly and is only going to get worse.

Trump's adoring audiences won't be there for him to charge his batteries for the foreseeable future.

After holding 100 rallies since he's been elected, Trump has hit a wall preventing him from getting his fan fix.

No more trolling the democratic primaries. No more arenas where followers can buy Trump's racist and alt-right merchandize and hear his rants first hand.

For the first time in Trump's presidency there are no rallies scheduled for the immediate future. It's an existential threat that even surpasses his concern about the pandemic and the economy.

Trump needs those crowds like he needs oxygen to breath. Without them he's a fish out of water, gasping for life in a hostile world.

His rallies are critical crutches where he needs the accolades to stand up to the reality of the world around him. Trump needs his followers more than they need him!

As America shuts down, as Broadway goes dark, as Disneyland goes dormant and March madness goes poof, Trump at the moment has been stripped of his most potent political strength.

This new political reality for Trump comes at a time when Americans are striving to come together to fight the common enemy - the coronavirus. 

The last thing Trump wants to see is unity. We can count on him to continue to try and divide Americans via his toxic twitter account.

It's a Brave New World Where Reality is Re-Emerging

Good Day World!

I don't care how hard our reality TV president tries, he can't spin the coronavirus into a good thing, or blame someone else for it.

The Lord of Lies has met his match... and it's a bug.

The days of denial and Trump minions holding emergency health meetings in the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) to come up with propaganda are over.

The truth is out.

The Trump regime was not only painfully slow in it's response to the growing pandemic, but woefully behind the entire world when it came to testing for the deadly virus.

In an era where Trump has told us what we see is not real, a splash of reality has soaked his toupee with the COVID 19 virus. It even has his favorite Congressional puppets worried.

The stock market tanked every time Trump went on TV and tried to bullshit his way through the crisis. 

Investors throughout the world's markets knew he was a serial liar and that the US economy was in big trouble and it was only going to get worse.

Americans are learning quickly in this health crisis - the worst in 100 years - to only listen to the experts on healthcare. Trump and cronies have lost all credibility trying to downplay this massive threat to our society and safety.

It's a brave new world where liars are rightfully being scorned, and the truth has once again emerged to reunite Americans in a way only a crisis of this magnitude can.

Let's hope there's still time to save lives by coming together as a people willing to sacrifice for the greater good.

Be safe.

Nothing is Going to Be The Same: America is Under Seige From the Coronavirus

Good Day World!

For starters...

A planet-wide pandemic - the coronavirus - has been declared.

America is facing a national emergency because of this.

There's no debating these two facts. 

How we deal with them here in America is going to be a social experiment that's not going to be pretty. Socially, it's a body blow for entertainment.

Elbow bumps have replaced handshakes. We're all supposed to practice "social distancing" a nebulous term that suggests we stay about six-feet from one another, and not go to crowded events...anywhere.

Sporting events. Weddings. Funerals. Museums. Concerts. Parades. Conventions. Church services. The list goes on. 

In this brave new world of containment nationwide, our country's infrastructure is screeching to a halt as the economy gets body slammed by the coronavirus restrictions.

Everyone has to view their daily activities in a different lens in this state of emergency. Old habits are now suddenly dangerous. Don't touch your face. Clean your hands at every opportunity. Don't go outside your house unless you have too.

Containment is necessary to control the spread of COVID 19.

So is testing. Unfortunately, we are behind the curve on both counts. It's going to take a lot of cooperation on everyone's part to get through it. Changing habits, almost overnight, is no easy task, but we have to do it. 

Listen to the experts. Ignore the Trump puppets who are still trying to downplay the crisis this country is currently facing.

It's also probably a good time to catch up on your reading, or other indoor activities.

Trump's Nightmares: Joe Biden and a Faltering Economy Are Becoming Real

Good Day World!

Trump has been afraid of Joe Biden for over a year.

He even got impeached trying to dig up dirt on Biden and his son Hunter.

After yesterdays Super Tuesday II win for Biden, it looks like Trump's nightmare is coming true... he's going to have to face Joe in November.

It doesn't stop there.

Trump's other cause of sleepless nights is the economy. With the coronavirus sweeping the nation and the stock market tumbling and signs of a recession looming starkly, Trump's stuff of nightmares has entered his reality TV world.

Personal fear has entered Trump's alternate universe. It's no longer just about rallying racists by using their fears of others. No. This new fear is personal.

While the CDC and other health officials are trying to alert Americans to the dangers of the coronavirus, Trump is downplaying them daily.

After the World Health Organization announced there's a pandemic, Trump's health team under Pence, burrowed their heads into the ground, cancelling a press conference.

The response to all of this... the senate is going on a weeklong recess

Trump claims he doesn't need much sleep, which if true, is really going to be tested with his new daymares
This is one crisis he's not going to be able to spin... though he's still trying.

Super Tuesday: It's Do, or Die for Bernie...and the Country

                                      Good Day World!

Don't be surprised if this time next week - in another Super Tuesday - the results turn out to be anti-climatic.

If Bernie doesn't take Michigan today it will be over for his campaign, especially with projected wins in Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Ohio, and Mississippi for Biden.

The good news is the party is rallying around Joe (because they believe he'll beat Trump in November) as he gets more important endorsements daily.

The one mission that all Democrats agree on in this election cycle is driving Trump out of the West Wing is the top priority.

There's always going to be grumbling. Especially if Bernie loses in the primaries. The far left of the party was hoping for a revolution, but that's looking less likely daily. As for the so-called Bernie Bros. they can be counted on to act like children.

I like Bernie. He's honest and consistent in his political views, including health care for all. But, I see his candidacy hurting the down ballot in a year the Democrats need to take back the Senate.

I'm confident Joe is going to continue to appeal to all segments of our society, especially African-Americans who universally hate Trump.

Biden may not turn out to be a great president, but the contrast between his class, knowledge, compassion for the little guy, and honesty will stand in stark contrast to Trump.

America is sick of Trump. Add his mishandling of the coronavirus epidemic (at every stage of the way) and he's not going to get good ratings from most Americans in November.

Reality Check: Officials Declare a PANDEMIC. Now What?

                                        Good Day World!

There's no vaccine for it.

There's hardly any testing being done because the CDC hasn't been able to generate the needing supplies and facilities to deal with it.

The Trump administration is in denial of it.

U.S. Officials have declared the coronavirus a pandemic.

The stock market is plunging.

One thing we know for sure; the Trump/Pence administration was, and is, painfully unprepared to effectively deal with the rapidly spreading coronavirus.

The chasm between the White House and health experts has been demoralizing. People are confused about how to protect themselves, and others. Fear is feeding upon the weak response by so-called top officials (all Trump loyalists).

My advise is to only listen to the officials.

With the massive work that lies ahead in fighting the coronavirus in the USA you'd think Trump would, at least, stop attacking health officials for telling the truth.

Instead, the Trump team sees a chance to achieve long-sought goals.

To Be Clear... There's Extremists on the Left and Right

                                        Good Day World!

Democrats are talking about Bernie Bros., and bloodbaths that lie ahead in the last push for delegates in the coming weeks.

It's not Sander's fault that he has hardcore supporters who've latched onto his campaign like parasites. He's disavowed their assaults against his opponents numerous times.

But the Bernie Bros ignore their champion's stance and continue acting like thugs looking for a fight.

I've spent a lot of time documenting Trump and the alt-right morons who follow him. The difference is, Trump encourages his extremist pack by ignoring their activities while giving subtle signs of support.

An extremist is an extremist. Left or right. I think we can all agree to that. 

In this age of extremely polarized politics, the extremists are playing a bigger part in the electoral process than any other time in the history of our democracy.

Despite being a minority of the population, extremists are playing an increasingly disturbing role in our election process.

Bernie will just have to keep pushing back at his Bernie Bros. and stay focused on getting his message out.

As for the rest of us, we must not be diverted by any extremist. We also should not be afraid to call out their vile activities in real time.

It's Time the Mainstream Media Admits This is not a Normal Election

The mainstream media is sending signals that they don't know what to do about the most corrupt presidential candidate in history. Trump ...
