Trump really is napalm – but in a good way

Trump really is napalm – but in a good way

Two years ago, I wrote that sunlight may be the best disinfectant, but Donald Trump is napalm. And with his brief statement on the garbage stimulus bill Congress passed, President Trump got out the flame-thrower and went full napalm on these assholes.

On Monday, my brother and I were texting back and forth discussing this 5000+ page pile of crap. At the time I sent that text, I had my doubts that President Trump would do it. I figured he’d just sign it right away despite all the crap they put in it. Then I sent him this message:

“Imagine if he addressed the nation and read item-by-item all the garbage they snuck into the bill, then vetoed it on camera. It would be kick-ass powerful.”

My brother agreed that it would be great if the President dragged all the dirty nuggets into the clear light of day. To which I responded:

“It would be brilliant. To expose just how venal and callous Congress is? Americans would be furious that they’re being held hostage so these assholes can sneak in their pet projects.”

Imagine my surprise when yesterday President Trump did almost exactly what I imagined.

That 4-minute video of President Napalm exposing all the useless pork Congress stuck into that bill while leaving us with a paltry $600 was a brilliant move – and not just because I suggested it.

When I texted my brother yesterday evening and told him about the video, it had been viewed 1.4 million times on Twitter.

Sixteen hours later it climbed to over 21 million views.

With sunlight, there are still shadows.

But with Napalm, anything that would cast a shadow is burned away.

And there was a lot of napalm in that four-minute statement.

Congress can’t hide what they’re doing in the shadows because President Napalm torched anything that would cast a shadow.

Of course the question remains.

Will Congress send him a clean, stand-alone COVID relief bill? Or will they simply vote to override any veto?

As it stands, the bill passed both chambers with a veto-proof majority. So if President Trump vetoes it, these cretins just might decide to override rather than do the necessary work to change it.

My brother asked me this morning if I thought any of the Yes votes would have a change of heart and stop an override.

Truth is, I don’t.

Congress – and this is true of both Republicans and Democrats – don’t like getting taken to the woodshed this way. They’re arrogant, self-important jerks after all. Plus I’m sure there are plenty on both sides of the aisle who will defy Trump and vote to override for no other reason than they view him as a powerless lame duck.

Besides, they don’t appreciate getting doused with napalm. These soulless creeps would much rather work in the shadows behind closed doors creating multi-thousand-page bills with oodles of secret goodies tucked in than work in the open where we the people can see what they’re doing.

Sure they’re more than happy to play us for chumps. But they can’t stand the fact that President Trump called them on it.

I’m thinking out of spite, these assholes won’t lift a single finger to change their garbage bill.

I’m sorry if I sound defeatist. But the fact is, I don’t trust Congress to put the interests of the American people first. Why should I when they’ve spent decades showing us that they won’t?

    This is why the “Murder Turtle” (Mitch McConnel) was so keen to accept Biden as president-elect. Biden would just sign this monstrosity.

    I trust our Constitution and swore a lifelong oath to support and defend it against all enemies foreign and domestic. Sadly, however, if I was to be polled on how much I trust our government, I would unhesitatingly answer that I have ZERO trust in the Legislative Branch, ZERO trust in the Executive Branch (apart from Trump), and ZERO trust in the Judicial Branch. Our government has devolved into such a state as we’ve not seen for nearly 250 years when our colonial masters “…erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.” Now, I feel a renewed Spirit of ’76 and more clearly understand why our Forefathers solemnly proclaimed the following,
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    The “government” despises OUR President. He has exposed those filthy rats for what they are. No one else could or would have done that. It’s the DC Cartel vs. We the People. Maybe it’s time to ‘refresh the tree of Liberty’ as Thomas Jefferson recommended.

    If Congress overrides Trump’s veto, it’s completely on them. They won’t be able to point at Trump and blame him for signing this rancid pile of pork salad.

    Congress does not write legislation. They couldn’t write 56 pages let alone 5600. The money is not real, just a IOU to the few generations. God help them.
