Don’t hold your breath for presidential representation!! … ‘ if you are holding out some hope that he will behave and act like a world leader, splash yourself with cold water and wake up from that dream, for he has already insulted the nation in the days leading up to his trip … ‘
Tomorrow, Donald Trump goes to visit our friends in the United Kingdom. I offer my apologies to my UK friends in advance for all the terrible things he is sure to say and do, and I hope you won’t hold it against us … or at least those of us who did not, could not, and would not vote for him. But really, you guys invited him … what were you thinking???Last July Trump visited the UK and was honoured with a visit to the Queen. I shuddered when I heard that would take place, for he is known for being crude and crass, without a shred of grace or dignity to his name. And, true to form, he disrespected the Queen in numerous ways, humiliating and embarrassing us. He began by arriving late, looking sloppy as usual, and keeping Her Majesty waiting for a full ten minutes. Then…
My sentiments exactly … ‘Refusing a peaceful transition of power? Refusing even to give up that power? It ought to be unthinkable. But Comrade Drumpf and his fellow Republicans have already been laying the foundations for the unthinkable for a couple of years with their repeated lies about voter fraud and the ‘deep state traitors’ inside the government and ‘fake news’ agencies staffed by reporters who hate Drumpf.’ … I shudder to even imagine!!
On Friday, May 31, Drumpf tweeted a message in support of Pride Month
It was breathtakingly disingenuous given his administration’s systematic assault on LGBT rights.
After ignoring LGBTQ Pride month since he took office – and moving to roll back LGBTQ rights in so many areas – Drumpf had the gall to tweet about celebrating Pride on the eve of Pride month, in a couple of tweets on Friday. May 31, in which he also claimed he had “launched” an effort to decriminalize homosexuality around the world.
But Drumpf’s celebration of Pride is as fraudulent and calculated as his claim to be fighting to decriminalize homosexuality. This is in fact an attempt to portray himself as supportive of LGBTQ people as he gears up for the 2020 re-election campaign. The goal is less about getting much of the community’s backing – which will be near impossible – but more about keeping or getting the support of many others who might be turned off by blatant anti-LGBTQ bigotry.
