Wisconsin is suffering. Her people have had a deep wound inflicted upon them by a president who allowed a terrible disease to walk into our homes and steal away our children, our mothers, our grandfathers. Yet, the commander-in-chief Donald Trump, the only one who could have organized a battle, is wandering off somewhere in his expensive uniform and toy sword.
The Lincoln Project released a new ad titled Mourning in Wisconsin. People are mourning their lost loved ones lying in dark cold graves. They mourn their lost jobs and their lost homes.
As the people of Wisconsin watch crops moldering in the grain elevators with no market after Trump started his futile, ridiculous tariff war with China. Farmers commit suicides, because they cannot bear to lose many-generations of their ancestors’ family farm.
Meanwhile, Trump is hanging around with the beautiful people and the dictators of Russia, China, Turkey, and North Korea.
Iraq Veteran and Chairman of VoteVets Jon Soltz said about another Lincoln Project hero:
‘No American citizen, let alone a war hero, should ever feel like they could be punished by the president, just for telling the truth..But Americans need to realize that if Donald Trump can go after a lost war hero’s family…he will go after anyone, and their family. If we cannot protect those who do right, and who tell the truth, we cannot protect this Republic from falling into authoritarian rule…The question for voters now is, will right continue to matter in America?’
The people of Wisconsin lost their homes. Now, they must make do with flimsy tent against northern winters and cold winds sweeping off of the river.
Then, there is the president with his golden penthouse in a tower shouting his own name.
The country has lost 227,983 souls to the true pandemic. Our loved ones leaving in an ambulance never to return, never to touch, never to call.
POTUS has gone on his helicopter that wears his name emblazoned on the side.
Those who still are able to live in their Wisconsin homes, are worried about finding enough food, let alone being able to paint and repair them.
This while Trump lives in the lap of luxury. The gold drips in a gaudy setting while he calls the White House, the people’s house a “dump.”
The jobs are gone taking along with them the people’s stability and their sense of purpose, dignity, and hope.
Even as the middle class is suffering from a disease just as cruel as COVID-19, Trump pours billions into the pockets of his corporate friends through massive tax cuts. Taking the middle-class and funneling those hard-earned dollars to his billionaire friends.
