Been out of the newscycle for a bit and boy, thngs are escalating rather quickly.
Shockingly, when the President of the United States attacks his political opponents as evil and corrupt and endorses physical violence, his most loyal followers are only too happy to follow through on it. Yesterday saw several key politcal figures and news outlets receive pipebombs in the mail. From Maxine Waters to HIlllary Clinton and Barack Obama to CNN, the President’s foes have been targeted directly. This follows on earlier reporting of a pipe bomb being sent to George Soros’ residence in Westchester County, NY. Amid incendiary rhetoric, targets of Trump’s words become targets of bombs
This is all extremely disturbing, if for no other reason than this should be a far a bigger deal. This is domestic terrorism and something that the President fully endorses. Sure, he condemned the attacks last night. But whatever, Good Brain will be back on the twitters as soon as the cycles dies down, claiming the Democrats will kill us all or something if they win.
The GOP cannot win. This isn’t a partisan, the brand of political ideology it currently trades in is, well, radioactive. The FBI arrested former GOP candidate Jeremy Ryan for “trying to buy radioactive material with the intent to kill someone.” https://twitter.com/MaggieJordanACN/status/1055269593198092288
So yeah, the GOP has candidates taking notes on how to whack people from Putin. Classy.
Meanwhile, CIA Director Gina Haspel has reportedly heard the audio of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder. But because Stable Genius is unable to take a stand on Saudi Arabia because of his and the boy adventurer’s numerous finanical ties to the kingdom, nothing likely will be done. I’m sorry, I just don’t see any way out of this. He doesn’t care about this country, its citizens, or the ideals to which we aspire. He’s not gonna do anything so he needs to go.
