Wow. It looks like Rick Wilson had it right. His book Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever came true. (See Amazon for more information about it.) Thursday, Donald Trump decided to enter into a grief-a-thon with all the other presidents.
Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton all appeared in Atlanta to honor a civil-rights “saint.” President Jimmy Carter and his wife sent their sympathies. All the living presidents minus one said Representative John Lewis was not a perfect man, but he was a better man than the rest of us.
Well, 45 could not bear to have all that attention down in the church where Martin Luther King preached. We could tell that the sitting POTUS had been watching the eulogy. This is why. Keep in mind, Trump does not have real feelings except for rage and hatred, so he lifted some of the words that were spoken about Representative Lewis in a moving tribute.
Let the games begin. Trump should be docked 50 points for killing the man whom he said everyone “adored…especially me:” The “murder” occurred at Trump’s Tulsa, Oklahoma rally where people arrived sans mask and sans distancing between individuals. The waiver to not sue if they caught the virus there everyone had to sign should have been the best clue. That is likely where the unfortunate Mr. Cain caught coronavirus.
If Trump had worn a mask, if he had urged others to wear a mask instead of denigrating them, if he had not called coronavirus “fake,” if he had not had his staff take the six-foot spacing labels off and crunch everyone together, then Cain could have been up and running today.
Take off another 50 points for comparing the man behind a pizza chain to a man who was called to walk with Martin Luther King and nearly died from police brutality.
Trump tweeted his condolences about his saint of the pizza biz:
‘My friend Herman Cain, a Powerful Voice of Freedom and all that is good, passed away this morning. Herman had an incredible career and was adored by everyone that ever met him, especially me. He was a very special man, an American Patriot, and great friend. I just got off…’
Trump even knew Cain’s wife’s name:
‘…the phone with his amazing wife Gloria, daughter, Melanie, and son Vincent to express my deepest condolences to the entire family. @FLOTUS Melania and I loved Herman Cain, a great man. Herman, Rest In Peace!”
No person’s death is simple. However, Trump is to blame for his negligence, lack of leadership, and even lack of interest in the coronavirus. His supporter Mr. Cain and 155,449 other Americans have died unnecessarily. That number is a little hard for most people to bend their minds around.
Let us say that Donald Trump dressed up in his black, bad-guy costume and wore his mask just as the Lone Ranger wore his. Put him on a filled 747 plane with three or four Negev NG7 machine guns that pound out 150 bullets before he has to reload a clip.
If that happened, people would be shocked. The cable and network stations would hide the blood and gore, but still, it would be awful. Now load Trump up again and send him onto another plane, then another, and another until he has killed every man, woman, and child on 445 other planes. That is how many have died. How many will die? It depends on whether we contain the coronavirus — or not.
Twitter world went crazy after Trump did a grief-competition with his man. Take a look at how much fun they had at Trump’s expense below:
‘Who needs enemies with friends like @realDonaldTrump that made @THEHermanCain and others attending his Tulsa #MAGA rally sign waivers, instead of taking precautions #TrumpLiesAmericansDie #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica nestorgomezstoryteller.com/published-stor ‘
‘Can’t wait for your “youlogy” since it will be both all about you and you’re responsible for his death.’
‘Replying to @HoarseWisperer and @realDonaldTrump Bet he’s relieved he had everyone sign those death waivers before his Tulsa cult rally.’
‘Replying to @realDonaldTrump Am I the only one that thought this was the end of his tweet?’
‘What did he die of? Was he in any indoor spaces with large crowds recently?’
‘Replying to @MikeDrucker and @realDonaldTrump
‘Leave him alone Mike, the man just got off.’
‘Replying to @HoarseWisperer and @realDonaldTrump
‘What do you want to bet trump tries to drag herman cain’s body out to a big public event as a prop to make himself feel better for being excluded from John Lewis’ funeral?’
‘He did not write it. It’s too coherent.’
‘Replying to @realDonaldTrump Herman Cain died for your sins,
‘This is just plain rude.’
‘You know what else is rude? Not wearing a mask at a large gathering of people in the middle of a pandemic. You reap what you sow.’
‘He beat cancer. He didnt have to die. An indoor rally during a pandemic was a cruel, lethal thing to ask people to attend. I am sad for all who got sick because of it. Especially for those who didnt survive the disease. Its awful and sad.’
‘In a lethal pandemic best not to hold indoor rallies,insisting people sit without spacing. That was a murder.’
