      Be happy and be well. Please be careful about Covid. Viral load matters for infection, spending hours in a house with people is a great way to get infected.

If anyone is being unfair, it’s Trump

Trump is constantly whining about how unfair everyone is to him when they question him, expose his lies or try to hold him accountable.

By the way, who was it that lately sent me a “If Trump was Churchill during the Blitz (in the style of Covid)”? So true.

Anyway, if anyone is being unfair these days, it’s Trump. After all, he’s threatening Americans with pre-existing conditions, seniors who are retired or about to retire by threatening to permanently suspend the payroll tax, and taking every state that wants a free and fair election to court. He says he won’t agree to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses. He’s installing a hard right wing zealot on the Supreme Court, making it difficult if not impossible for working people to get justice again for a generation. Some of us will be dead by the time Amy Coney Barrett dies on the job. It’s going to be THAT LONG.

And then there’s Covid and the unfairness of watching Trump scoff at science and discredit the scientists everyday while millions of us get sick, get thrown out of our jobs or die.

I’m sick of hearing about how unfair life is for this ignorant, bully of a “president”. Why should any of us care about what is unfair to him? He’s gotten away with bad business deals, bad social behavior and irresponsibility his whole life.

These whole four years, and the 20 years that preceded them, have been grossly unfair to the rest of us.

Someone needs to call him on it and tell him once and for all that life is not fair, Donald. He’s had it much better than most people. But if he really finds the expectations we have of him to be unfair, there’s the door. Don’t let it hit you on the way out.

We really don’t give a damn.

Jeezus, Republicans really are the daintiest snowflakes.

  1. One of the calling cards of sociopathy is the strong playing of the victim card…

  2. President Trump is constantly trying to “game the refs.” Unfortunately, the media and commentators let him get away with it quite a lot.
