My Stock Reply To America’s Neo Commies

I wrote the following short article:

The naïve, ignorant and greedy Donald J. Trump has allowed himself to be punked by almost every two-bit strongman on the earth, such as the rulers of North Korea, China and certainly Russia. Moreover, it would appear that Rudy Gluliani, in order to stay nationally relevant, has decided to play upon Trump’s witlessness, avarice and fears by fanning the fames of right wing conspiracy fantasies centering on the past corruption of Ukraine.

Terrified by what Trump saw as Joe Biden’s political threat to his 2020 reelection, Gluliani expected that Trump would eagerly grasp at any story of dirt on Biden, real or imagined. The great mayor may seem like a clown in public, but he nevertheless seems to have something of a Svengalis effect on the mind of President Trump. And thus Trump has been brought by Rudy to see Ukraine and not Russia as the primary meddler in our 2016 election.

It has been said that no con is so easily coned as by one who is also a con. And so it would seem to be the case with America’s biggest con, Donald J, Trump. As those in the know might say, Rudy has the Donald’s number. Speaking the con man’s language, which would be a story line without facts, it seems that Rudy has an uncanny ability to lead the Donald down any rabbit hole he so chooses. So I guess it is fair to say that we need to add Rudy to those who have already successfully managed to Punk the Donald ever nearer the slammer for their own nefarious purposes.


Here was a Russian (commie) talking point reply.

President Trump has been tougher on Russia than his predecessor. Some of the toughest sanctions in years have fallen on Russia’s elite under the Trump administration. Sanctions imposed over Russia’s invasion of Crimea in 2014 have not been lifted, Trump approved the sale of lethal weapons to Ukraine — something Obama did not do — and he’s ordered missiles fired at Syrian military sites, openly targeting strategic operations and allies of Russia. Trump has killed Russians — something Obama would never have risked…


And here is my reply to that corrupt enemy line

There are always a few grains of truth in every fairytale. Trump, however, slobbers all over our enemies and craps all over our allies and mocks America’s ideals. He is America’s founding father’s worst nightmare.

Trump, as anyone not pushing Russian talking points knows, has become Putin’s greatest weapon against democracy, the rule of law and truth.

Soon you will be drinking the Kool-Ade in Trump Town.

Let’s just hope America can survive this Trump/Putin/GOP cesspool of evil.
