You may have noticed that of late, the content posted here on the Ooh Sometimes web site here stayed mainly away from the politics of the day. Don’t get me wrong, every now and then when there’s an election or something just completely insane going on, it makes its way back to these pages with a fiery, often ridiculing tone.
Today is one of those days where sadly I am compelled to note write about the latest guff I saw at the cinema or point to a livestream where I am awful at computer games.
Ladies and Gentlemen, for your consideration and discussion, the 45th President of the United States; Donald J. Trump. This was his latest non press conference, in which he was meant to talk about infrastructure before going off to hide in Trump Tower in New York again. As you see here though, he does much more than that;
I hope you watched the entire thing because you really needed to. This was in context to the troubles and murder that occurred in Charlottesville when White Nationalists or Nazis decided to all go out for cake and ice cream but instead, they had a jolly shout out about racist sh*t before starting various amounts of violence against people who don’t like Nazis. You know the type; Normal people, Decent people. One of the Nazis even murdered a woman named Heather Hayer and injured several others with a car. He now awaits punishment, which may indeed still include the death penalty from what I understand, though please correct me if that’s not the case.
On the Saturday that all this had occurred, Trump pretty much decided to not p*ss off the Nazis but everyone else who is normal by saying there was bad action on both sides. BOTH sides. Because he was told to go be nice and condemn the Nazis on Monday, it seems he had a bee in his bonnet because as you will have seen with that press conference, it pretty much all went out the window and he wanted to still be nice to everyone, even to the point of stating that there were very good people on BOTH sides too. Oh and he also made it about him at several points, saying things about the mother of Heather Hayer being happy with what he said, and owning a f*cking winery in Charlottesville. Did you know it’s one of the biggest in the US? No? What a shock!
Remember folks, this is the guy the USA via the Electoral College thought was still mentally stable to be president after this;
What’s even better, our own dear Prime Monster (no typo there I assure you) Theresa May has, while condemning what took place over the weekend in the US, she stopped very short of actually naming Trump and calling him out as being a complete and total sh*tbag. Probably because she still wants to play nice to get a crap trade deal with what’s left of the US after we’ve done ourselves in from Brexit (oh yes, all that insanity is still going on too). He’s still on for a state visit which may never happen as everyone knows he faces a torrent of abuse by normal people if and when he arrives for said visit.
But there’s another reason it shouldn’t happen. The current US administration is unfit for purpose and must go. This is just utterly insane to say that at any point, Nazis were in the right and there are good people among them. This is not right, Trump is not right in the head. I’ve often commented on whether or not he’s just mentally ill given what he does. But after this, no, he’s just a f*cking racist asshole and frankly, should be out on his arse now. He can take the rest of the cronies with him too.
Call a new election, and when vetting candidates, make sure they are nothing like Trump. No Alt-Right, Alt-Tab or whatever they want to be called. Nazis are bad. That’s it. Trump and his evil band of Reich-starters must go. Each day they all stay in power, is another slap in the face to everyone else in the world who, let’s be fair, don’t like Nazis.
Is this what the world has come to? A f*cking repeat of humanity’s greatest f*ck-ups? I’ve used the world insane to describe quite a lot here. That’s because it is. It’s not normal, none of this is normal.
This has to stop. All of this. NOW.
