My takeaway? “FUCK YOU FOR MAKING ME TAKE KARL ROVE’S SIDE!”
Even more risible than the letter’s contents, of course, is the gaudy “SAVE AMERICA” letterhead, the ocher abomination’s new, post-MAGA branding. Save it from what, exactly? $1,400 relief checks? Living wages? A sane, science-based pandemic strategy? A president who refuses to treat social media like it’s a piss pot he needs to empty out onto the heads of passersby from his second-floor balcony 14 times a day?
These “official” statements must be killing him. You know he wants to tweet this shit and more, but now he can’t. Twitter was custom-made for this dunce. He could blast his billowing skull methane out into the universe at a hearty clip, and he’d get instant gratification in the form of tons of retweets, comments, and atta-boys from his philistine horde.
These “statements” are more like D-grade school essays. By all accounts, Donald Trump hated school. How do I know that? His entire presidency was like a blood vendetta against anyone with an IQ over 80.
So when I saw his latest offering—so close on the heels of his feckless CPAC speech—I was grateful. Grateful that this oaf is no longer on Twitter, which for years acted as a virtual mind-meld between him and his benighted followers.
Even better than his loosening grip on his cult is the fact that he’s no longer mind-fucking me with his toxic little dingus. I no longer have to wake up wondering who got fired like a dog, which Yoo-hoo flavor is a cure-all for COVID, or which actor is more overrated, Meryl Streep or Robert De Niro.
It’s over. Forever. It’s not a straitjacket, but it’s the next best thing.
Not for nothing, this is the result:
March 4 came and went without a riotous mob re-storming the Capitol.
The MAGA mob no longer has an inciter-in-chief to look to in their time of need. I can rest my weary eyeballs.
Thanks, Twitter, for the restful naps. It took you long enough, but better late than never, I guess.
