The Renomination of the Mayor of Shark City


At the beginning of the pandemic, I compared President Stupid to the mayor in Jaws.

This is no longer true.

In Jaws, after enough people had died and the existence of a man-eating shark was confirmed when it literally swam up in broad daylight and ate a kid in front of the entire town on the Fourth of July, the shaken mayor finally relented and authorized spending whatever was necessary to kill the shark and save the town.

But here in the real world, as the death toll tops 180,000, President Stupid has...

...fired the sheriff...

...fired the shark expert...

...fired the professional shark-hunter...

...put the town drunk, the town crackpot and his own idiot son-in-law in charge of shark stuff...

...declared victory over the shark even as a feeding frenzy of thousands of sharks turns the beach red with blood every day...

...put his idiot children in charge of telling everyone how awesomely their daddy handled the shark thingie...

...and ordered that his renomination party be held waist-deep in the shark-infested waters.
The Unmasked Ball: Trump Creates His Own Pandemic-Free Reality

Borrowing the White House as a campaign stage, the R.N.C. closed by garden-partying like Covid-19 was over.
COVID-19 has no greater ally than Donald John Trump and the Republican Party.

From his apprentice chair in front of his desk.

Trump tells American voters they are fired.

They let his promise of $ trillion borrowed while in debt to give to the wealthy and those lazy Americans did not make the wealthy give them those raises or bring back all those good paying jobs like Trump promised.

Apparently, the American working class got so lazy and harmed the U.S. GDP. That Trump promised would be 4% to 5% which never happened and cause Trump to fail. Or as Brooks would say, the polarization of both sides failed. The House majority Democrats could not compromise to give the republicans everything they asked for.
