Donald Trump really, really doesn’t want to lose the election in November after spending four years calling everyone who ever ran for a seat and lost “losers” and “not smart.” His campaign of fear ramped up on Tuesday, dripping with desperation for attention. After saying during a Rose Garden press conference/political campaign rally that “the liberals wouldn’t mind if people came and blew up our cities,” the actual president of the United States took to Twitter to warn voters that, under Joe Biden, their children will be slaughtered in the streets by Democrats.
The Trump fear-mongering campaign of 2016, which warned us all of Mexican immigrants jumping the border to come rape and murder all the white Americans, has turned into a sad drumbeat of panicked warnings about the evils of being a non-Trump supporter. While a global pandemic seizes the country and parents worry over whether or not to send their children to school in the fall, Trump needs them to be frightened about something else, perhaps something he can make vague promises to fix without those pesky CDC reports showing he hasn’t fixed anything.
In recent days, the rhetoric of death and destruction has been dialed way up, with Trump painting pictures of cities laid bare, burned to the ground, and violent criminals taking over all the police stations. The closer November gets, the worse the rhetoric will likely become, although at this rate, “worse” will mean Trump saying Joe Biden personally has a weapon of mass destruction hidden in his basement.
Twitter didn’t seem all that bothered by the threat of a Biden America. Read some of their comments below:
