    During the black plague there was a song children would sing. The last line was “Ashes, ashes, we all fall down.”

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    f someone told me in 2016 that the newly “elected” resident would crash the economy and make things worse — people actually dying — for everyone, I WOULD have indeed agreed and fully expected that he could do it based on his total lack of actual relevant skills/experience. Our infrastructure is getting that third world look and our healthcare system has zero resilience in a pandemic. Funds are being diverted to build a useless — Potemkin village style — wall, while people are dying because of poor leadership and a spineless/callous (multi-)millionaire Congress that is unwilling/unable to stop the dangerously demented leader by using the power they have to do it.

    (as a side light) It is very apparent that Trump has absolutely NO self respect, nor ANY faith in his ability to handle any situation, otherwise he would not bloviate and bluster so much and disparage anyone who says anything which is not worshipful of him. He finds that he MUST attack everyone who doesn’t praise him because he knows that what they are saying is true. A casebook example of a bully. He does not, in any way, understand the ter “bully pulpit” the way Teddy Roosevelt did.

    The Trump Disciples don’t care about any of those — except the stock market, which equals the economy now that Obama is not in office. The economy itself, not so much.

    Don’t forget the U.S. Constitution, it’s taken a battering since November 2016. PINO Trump’s still running on his platforms of xenophobia, nativism, and evangelical Chrisitianity being the bedrocks of the U.S.

    As in the original Potemkin’s faux villages, these are meant to impress deceitfully. In this case, to impress MAGA the Great. This is a great editorial cartoon, literate and truthful, maybe worthy of another Pulitzer?

    The only question is how many dead are acceptable to this administration. Never mind “save lives.” It’s “Save Wall Street.” Lives don’t matter; Profits matter.

    Narcissistic bully traits is what’s driving him…he also has no compassion and empathy and understanding of ANYTHING that makes sense and is the truth. He’s a real menace to this country and a sociopath….belongs in a mental institution …..slobbering and drooling. You know the same he’s doing now…

    The Potemkin Village is a marvelous analogy to the current “administration,” but I’m also reminded of Chip Diller, the unctuous frat boy played by Kevin Bacon in “Animal House.” At the end of the movie, he’s trying to calm people by saying “All is well” in the midst of a riot.

    The only people who support crooked liar Trump the murderous are brainless zombie Republicans.

    Republicans have become the party of death dealers.

    They are destroying our environment and health, they don’t care about Americans, they just love money.

    The Republican Federal Government still does not have a testing program.

    They are keeping the country closed by not testing.

    They think you are cows and should get ‘herd immunity’ because the tests cost $100 and they don’t think you are worth that much.

    If the Trump admin had done what they were supposed to do in the first place instead of lying and blaming 90% of those people who died would still be alive.

    The death count is growing higher as the Trump admin tries to force the country to reopen without testing.

    This is one of the biggest disasters in the world, thanks to Republicans.

    CNN host pours cold water on Trump’s re-election hopes with devastating new poll numbers

    ABC/Ipsos poll: only 42 percent of Americans now approve of the president’s handling of the coronavirus crisis. 57 percent disapprove. That’s a 14-point spike in disapproval over the last six weeks.”


    IMO only a brainwashed moron would give deadly liar Trump any approval.

    A statistic that will get overlooked:

    Today the US passed Italy in Covid cases per capita

    USA 348/100K

    Italy. 346/100K

    Why is Trump recycling his “MAGA” campaign cry? If he still wants to make America great again, that indicates that he admits that he has already failed to do that during his first term…
