Saving Alabama?

September 5th, 2019

He’s insane, OK? Can we say it out loud.

Trump tweeted that Alabama was in the path of  hurricane Dorian. But Alabama wasn’t in danger. That’s no big deal. He made a mistake. It’s not like he told the people in Idaho buy milk and toilet paper. It’s almost understandable for the grifter con-man to fuck up the geography of a state that he has never given one, much less two shits about. But that’s not the problem. Once his gaffe was revealed, he doubled down on his insanity. He took a National Weather Service map and altered it with a sharpie to include Alabama. I could not make this up. It’s like he’s a six-year old trying to draw boobs on his homework. Did no one in the White House sit him down and say, “Are you out of your fucking mind?”

But this is consistent with a pathological liar and sociopath. When caught in a lie, they just keep lying. When you don’t like facts? FAKE NEWS. When science gets in your way, Deny It. When Americans question you, “love it or leave it.”

Hurricane Dorian’s path didn’t include RED Alabama, but Trump’s path of destruction will. While Trump cuts social services, Alabama lists near the bottom in health care, education, income, and literacy. There’s an old saying that if you can’t see the con, then you’re the mark. And there’s no sharpie for that.
