What's Really Chapping [Redacted]'s Ass Right Now...

...is how clearly the pandemic and the protests in the street demonstrate his own complete and utter irrelevance.

Not one thing he has been able to do has changed either situation in any real magnitude.

Meaningful decisions have all devolved from the White House to hundreds of state and local Departments of Health, Governors' mansions, law enforcement entities, community protest groups, media centers, etc.

He had chances-- dozens of them, even hundreds of them-- to affect outcomes dramatically, to make a real, positive difference, in both situations. But they would have required him to, in his own view, "look weak." They would have required him to delegate and cede power to competent others. They would have required him to become a leader, leading by consent and with participation of the governed, rather than a dictator giving orders.

So he couldn't do it. He couldn't do any of it.

The most he could do, without directly scuppering his own mental image of himself as The War Pressydink or whatever it is, was to mess up other peoples' efforts.

And now there are too many people making too many various efforts in too many other places for him to control at all.

All the effectiveness and impact he, as the designated central authority, COULD have contributed to the dire situations, is so much tear gas dispersing on the wind.

He's officially irrelevant. The sideshow clown he's always been, exposed.

His foam-flecked horror-tweets barely rate a mention anymore, and that only pro-forma from the sources detailed to maintain a watching brief.

Watch for him to keep trying increasingly dangerous and deranged gambits to make himself relevant again.

warily,
Bright

1. "The War Pressydink" Perfect moniker

2. I keep thinking about the old camp song

There was an old woman who swallowed a fly.
He keeps having to come up with more and more obscene distractions as he fails.

When we get to the verse about the horse, we shall see.

Very good post.

3. He sees this massive movement

and probably thinks it is because of him but this time he cannot think of a way to make that good. Now he sees us all and realizes he could not mobilize more than a couple thousand people, if that, if he asked them and paid them to do this same thing.

Honestly I think the ending for him is the changing of 16th street right in front of him, without him and something he will see whenever he leaves the WH. For him that is the ultimate torture, us making it known in his fucking face.

I love what you have written. At some point if we annoy him enough they will take him away or he will have a massive stroke. He is beyond consoling now I think.

4. Bunker Boy hiding in his bunker didn't help things any either. His cowardly actions point to failed

leadership on all levels. His BS is running out of steam. His hypocrisy and hype is falling on deaf ears. His fake crying and moaning are akin to crying wolf way too many times, and people no longer are paying attention to him. States and cities and undertaking actions on all fronts to step forward w/ the protesters, to step forward to a new future that will come, without this lying scumbag and presidential pretender.

5. Trump is incapable of working cooperatively

Because that means first, he can't do it all, and second, that others might share in the credit for fixing the problem. He has to be seen as the "only I can fix it" guy, and all the glory has to go to him.

6. The rate of his shit expansion has reached its endpoint, & is now rapidly collapsing back around him

He now finds himself the center-point of a rapidly-accelerating imploding universe of his own shit.
