When President Ronald Reagan took office, he emptied out all of the mental health facilities and dumped people unable to care for themselves onto the streets. Who took up the slack? The police stepped in with no training and began filling up the for-profit prisons with the abandoned individuals. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that there were 67,367 drug overdose deaths in the United States in 2018, the last year of their count. Who stepped in to deal with this? The police. The national has unfairly burdened the police. Now, change is moving them into a better direction, but Democrats made a made mistake.
The Democrats called the effort to return the police to a less exhausting place “Defund the Police.” What they really meant was that they intended to change the police. The old system has limped along for decades and has become militarized.
If necessary, the Democrats will follow the example of a New Jersey police force that worked with the police, the unions, the community, and mental and physical health care professionals to design a better more effective force. Then, they. fired the whole department and rehired them, unionized them, but weeded out those officers who were not suited to the job. Even the chief of police was fired and rehired.
Trump and his Republican party grabbed “defunding the police” and wrapped the “Law and Order” presidential slogan around it for a powerful message against the Democrats:
‘“Democrats & Activists call to Defund Police Departments. They’ve gone so far Left that they eat their young.” @mirandadevine @nypost @foxandfriends’

‘Vote today for Big Jim, a great Governor. Love West Virginia!’
Of course, the president could not resist some lying and pro-Trump economic compliments:
‘NASDAQ HITS ALL-TIME HIGH!’
Trump had to rev up his tired, completely wrong “ANTIFA” fight and toss in more lies. They included blaming the 75-year-old man for the police shoving him and sending him to the hospital:
‘Buffalo protester shoved by Police could be an ANTIFA (sic) provocateur. 75 year (sic) old Martin Gugino was pushed away after appearing to scan police communications in order to black out (sic) the equipment. @OANN I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set up?’
POTUS kills the messengers who send him bad news. Just kidding, but those messengers make certain to only give him good news — even if it is wrong:
‘Poll: Trump Better Than Biden On Economic Growth, 55% to 34%. That’s all? Who are the 34%?’
Twitter world went crazy when Trump began to blow his poisoned words across the nation. Take a look at some of our favorite responses below:
