Pretty soon, Donald Trump will be tooling around the country in the government equivalent of the Weinermobile. These strange hotdog-shaped car-esque machines are more popular than one would imagine. Several years ago, one of their drivers, who happened to be a crack addict, sold his job out from under himself to buy more drugs.
Now, the 45th president has been talking about hauling a bunch of statues around with him. He warned, “WE WILL PROTECT THIS!” That was really nice of him to help our friends in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Their famous Christ the Redeemer statue is 12 stories tall.
Over the weekend, dozens of ads ran promoting Trump and his Vice President Mike Pence. They read:
”The President wants to know who stood with him against the Radical Left. We’re sending a list of EVERY AMERICAN who signs their name to President Trump first thing TOMORROW morning. Will he see your name.
‘Add youR name by 11:59 PM TONIGHT to stand with President Trump and to get on the list of supporters he sees!’
Then, there was the Christ the Redeemer statue, featured prominently with the words “WE WILL PROTECT THIS”.
It appeared that the photo someone decided to afix to this ad came from an online database of free stock images. The art deco statue was built between 1922 and 1931, is 98 feet tall, and weighs 700 tons, according to the Encyclopædia Britannica.
Maybe, the president wanted to protect El Cristo de las Noas in Torreon, Coahuila. This one took longer to build, from 1973 to 2000. But it might be more portable. It is only 71 feet tall and weighs just 580 tons. Of course, it is in old Mexico, right along the drug trail.
Trump will be traveling with some American Founding Fathers statues, according to ABC News. They will go with him to his rallies. Whose idea would that be? Perhaps, the guy who thought it would be a good idea to inject bleach into people sick with coronavirus?
The whole point of this monument exercise was to bring attention to and condemn anyone who wanted controversial Confederate and other monuments of questionable individuals removed. Many of those statues will end up in museums.
Trump spoke at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial the day before the Fourth of July without even bothering to call the Native American chief whose sacred site he soiled with his words. POTUS used the time to rail against peaceful protesters. Apparently, those who looted and burned buildings may have been instigators inserted by white nationalist organizations.
The Christ of the Ozarks is 66 feet tall and weighs 1,000 tons. it is heavier, but a lot closer. Maybe, a Black Hawk helicopter could lift it?
Not one to linger on the facts, POTUS condemned the peaceful protesters as “angry mobs” and “a growing danger.” He ranted on, saying they were trying to wipe out “the heroes of 1776” with the goal of ending America:
‘Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values and indoctrinate our children. Their goal is not a better America. Their goal is to end America.’
The video held by a brave 17-year-old girl taping a murder let America gaze into the casual, stone-cold eyes of a white policeman executing a Black man in slow-motion, over eight long minutes and 46-seconds. George Floyd told the cop that he could not breathe — several times. Then, he cried out for his mama and died. All the mamas across the nation heard that call to arms, and the country shifted on its foundation of injustices and wrongs.
In an interview with RealClearPolitics on Tuesday, Trump repeated that he believed “we are in a culture war:”
‘If the Republicans don’t toughen up and get smart and get strong and protect our heritage and protect our country. I think they’re going to have a very tough election.’
His outdoor speech was just moments after his eldest son’s girlfriend tested positive for COVID-19. He announced to the group he had an executive order establishing the “National Garden of American Heroes” as “the greatest Americans to ever live.”
According to the White House, they released the list of over two dozen individual people who would be considered for the garden, including “George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Susan B. Anthony, and Antonin Scalia.”
In an email, POTUS asked for suggestions for other individuals to honor. He also announced the Deputy Assistant to the President in charge of the advance team, Max Miller, would be the next Trump Campaign Chief Operating Officer.
The man he replaced was moved to Legal Affairs after only six-thousand attendees sparsely filled the president’s Tulsa, Oklahoma rally. He embarrassed the boss.
Another advance team member, Bobby Peede moved back to the White House as White House Advance Director.
