A Day In The Anti-Life - Holy Shit!
Sigh. My president is a racist. That's not a surprise to me at all, he's on record many many times saying things which would have demolished the careers of almost any other politician in these United States. For a full listing check out this. But his latest outburst about "shithole countries" is yet again a new low as it combines the ugliness of racism with the coarseness of language (once again normalizing what was once abnormal) and demonstrating a stunning lack of self-awareness or even a mote of decorum. Not only is our "so-called" President a racist, he's a brazen and reckless racist who appears incapable of keeping his gutter attitudes hidden in the shadows where such notions usually creep about.
I keep trying to ameliorate my attention to these matters with escapist distractions, but this kind oafish nonsense demands a response from every reasonable American. Those who are twisting themselves into pretzels to try and explain away this ugly nonsense are even more vile than the dolt who occupies the oval office. He's a stupid and ignorant man who has evidently refused to learn about the world in all the many many years he's been gifted with. Those who serve him know better and are craven opportunists who need to recognize that enough of this is enough.
