…and here is my 2nd little video: my 1-minute response to the President’s lack of response to the violent video shown to his supporters last week at the Trump Doral Resort in Miami.
Not that I’d expect him to respond, or find it horrifying. It’s just One More Thing.
Some of his supporters’ takes I’ve seen on Twitter:
So what? The President didn't MAKE the video. He didn't post it either.If we can only judge elected officials by videos and memes they make themselves, that will be a problem. And it was shown at HIS resort. And he has known about it for days. And it depicts KILLING ELECTED OFFICIALS.
So? Kathy Griffin showed Trump's decapitated head.She is a comedian. It was a single image and was not shown at a Democratic event. She apologized and was crucified for it. And I thought it went way too far.
So? It's just a scene from "Kingsman." You all hate violent movies now You all are just too sensitive.Pretty sure it's not that. Here's one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies: The Bride defeating The Crazy 88s in "Kill Bill Vol. 1."
If this were altered to show someone murdering Fox News and Breitbart reporters and GOP elected officials, I would still find it offensive.
But I only chose to click on it today. Why? Because I just didn’t have the mental energy for the latest Trump shit before this. I am so damned tired of the latest treason, the latest broken law, the latest blatant defiance of legally issued subpoenas going unpunished.
I hear you. It’s Trump fatigue. Every day for 3 years, it has been “a new low,” “bizarre even by Trump’s standards,” “a constitutional crisis,” “evidence of emotional deconpensation” and “off the rails.” I think if the media could go back in time they would have avoided the hyperbole early on because we are running out of descriptive terms.
The fact that in this one, the Trump character is portrayed as actually killing elected officials Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Maxine Waters & Bernie Sanders (in addition to the news media) … and … nothing.
How far will he go?
