Is the Republican Party dead? Many thinking Republicans have shied away from the party they have embraced their lives after Donald Trump belly-flopped into it. On the first day of the Democratic National Convention (DNC), one former Republican noted that there is the Democratic Party and the Autocratic Party. Chilling.
The president spent his morning trying to attack the Democratic candidate’s team of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. While his efforts may have reinforced his stalwart supporters, they appeared as a weak flailing against the hope for a new, real administration.
America is in the fight of her life as a Democracy, and Trump has been using the full force of the presidency to pull the country into a dictatorship. His actions, like trying to maim the US Postal Service (USPS), mimick those of an authoritarian government, suggestive of President Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
The Republican Party may be dead, but the nation has had other parties come and go. It is a shame that Trump and Tea Partiers stole its name.
POTUS tried to go after one of the most popular people in the country, former First Lady Michelle Obama, after her rousing speech at the DNC:
‘Somebody please explain to @MichelleObama that Donald J. Trump would not be here, in the beautiful White House, if it weren’t for the job done by your husband, Barack Obama. Biden was merely an afterthought, a good reason for that very late & unenthusiastic endorsement…..’
Then, Trump conflated the economy with the stock market:
‘….My Administration and I built the greatest economy in history, of any country, turned it off, saved millions of lives, and now am building an even greater economy than it was before. Jobs are flowing, NASDAQ is already at a record high, the rest to follow. Sit back & watch!’
After that, he projected, using words the Democrats describe him with such as “weak,” “pathetic,” “bad,” “corrupt,” and “fake:”
‘Looking back into history, the response by the ObamaBiden (sic) team to the H1N1 Swine Flu was considered a weak and pathetic one. Check out the polling, it’s really bad. The big difference is that they got a free pass from the Corrupt Fake News Media!’
He continued projecting with “corrupt,” “spying,” “scandal,” and “treason:”
‘The ObamaBiden Administration was the most corrupt in history, including the fact that they got caught SPYING ON MY CAMPAIGN, the biggest political scandal in the history of our Country. It’s called Treason, and more. Thanks for your very kind words Michelle!’
Next, Trump went after former Homeland Security employee Miles Taylor with more ugly autocratic words “disgruntled,” “fake,” and “a real ‘stiff.'” Who says “stiff” anymore:”
‘Many thousands of people work for our government. With that said, a former DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEE named Miles Taylor, who I do not know (never heard of him), said he left & is on the open arms Fake News circuit. Said to be a real “stiff”. They will take anyone against us!’
Trump attacked one of the Republicans who spoke at the DNC, too, former Governor John Kasich (R-OH):
‘John Kasich did a bad job in Ohio, ran for President and was easy to beat, and now went to the other side desperate for relevance. Good Job by Chris C in exposing yet another loser!’
Twitter world lit up in response to Donald Trump’s small tweets that followed a powerful take-off of the Biden-Harris campaign. Check out their responses below:
