Rant: Why is God punishing Donald Trump and his family?

You know, when you're the Center of the Known Universe once in a great while you have to pause and reflect upon the state of things. Now, here was this utter business failure who was propped up, many people say by the Russian Government to subvert the very fabric of America, who by dint of his appeal to the "masses (of asses)" and opposing a candidate who had been vilified by the media establishment (read: GOP) for decades, as well as seditious interference by said Russian interests, elevated to the most powerful position on the planet Earth. Using brazen over-the-top aggressive techniques perfected by predecessors such as Hitler, Napoleon, and Genghis Khan he solidified his hold on America, demanding obeisance from the elected officials of his titular Party who were all too happy to fall into line - in order to keep the photos and the video off the internet, of course.

But like a heavyweight prize fight in the later rounds, the Champ let his guard down and suffered a hard right to the ribs during the impeachment ordeal, but layers of protection softened the blow. Next, however was a roundhouse to the side of his head. This virus came out of seemingly nowhere and in no time at all, knocked him down to the canvas, bleeding from his ear lobe, and in some fair pain. The bell rang and in his corner, the trainers couldn't stop the hemorrhage, now cascading down his shoulder. Since the rules of the match allowed him to continue, he stood up at the bell and went back into the center of the ring. The problem for him was not his opponent so much as the sight of his own blood made him sick. Flailing, swinging wildly, he landed inconsequential blows on his adversary, in this case making impossible promises to the People, contradicting experts and basic science, and yes, mathematics. He really hadn't been paying much attention senior year in high school when exponential functions were being discussed in analytic geometry. His usage of the terms "many people" and "nobody would have thought" demonstrated his utter ignorance of real numbers and statistics.

So we have a situation wherein the magician cannot hypnotize a viral particle and all of his assets, both domestic and foreign, cannot protect him: the hotels are shuttered, the golf courses empty, the possibilities for more development on hold indefinitely - and that's a significant amount of time when you're in your Seventies, the promise of a very difficult election ahead wherein your ignorance, your lack of conscience, your lack of humanity, your lack of intellectual capacity, your lack of any real emotionality was onstage for everyone to see. Many have said he's the Teflon Don, yes - many people say that, but one thing about Teflon: when it's scratched everything sticks to it.

And the poor offspring: tarred with the same brush: Ivanka who changed her drivers license to the address of her plastic surgeon, since she spent so much time there, is having problems with her "brand", and it's only going to get worse as people don't go out to shop AND don't want to be seen in her third-rate styles. The two adult sons, well, it's gotten quiet because they are scared to death - they, unlike the rest of us, know EXACTLY what their daddy is guilty of and it may all be coming home to roost soon. I'm not referring of course to judicial proceedings, I'm talking Hand of God intervention. The game only has a finite amount of time to be played and then it is going to be over and when that happens, there is no telling how far these two can fall. It's God's Plan.

"His Judgement Cometh, and that Right Soon" - on the wall of the warden in Shawshank Redemption It's on its way...

What I regret is that Dante is not around to witness this and write a sequel to The Divine Comedy. It'd be #1 on the New York Times best seller list. This story is positively Shakespearean or even Biblical. I do recall that the O.J. Simpson saga was a retelling of Othello, down to the racism and marriage to a white woman as well as the internecine politics of the age...of all ages. This Trump story would make a great play, possibly a trilogy. Or even a whole Book of the Bible. Perhaps God himself will write it as he wrote all the other books. all by himself. Even without a word processor.

1. Yes!

This is oh.. so smart and literate. I got much joy from it. I've thought of the biblical parallels, but didn't have the words to ever express it like this. However, the virus seems to be more like one of the 12 plagues.

20. yes he is

i don't believe in Antichrist theology. But if I did, Trump would be the one. He's like a reincarnation of Napoleon, Stalin, and Hitler.

He is murdering innocent people on our southern border, and innocent American citizens in communities across the country for the sake of maintaining his own power and wealth.

6. The Trumps are not shy about proclaiming how much they have 'sacrificed'.

Visit to Arlington Cemetery reminded Donald Trump Jr. of all his family's 'sacrifices,' he writes

"I gave up my life to move to Washington to help Americans," Ivanka Trump says in Davos interview.

10. They've sacrificed nothing. The media needs to remind him of his grifting.

Trump Organization was a failing business kept alive by Russian money before Trump ran for president. That is most likely the reason he ran. Some developments were already removing the Trump name and kicking them out as property managers because they skimped on maintenance (as in Panama in 2017). Trump overpaid for golf resorts (with Russian money?), and I believe the two in Ireland and Scotland have never turned a profit.

The Trumps have made an enormous amount of money from the presidency. Jared would not have received his advantageous loan for 666 Fifth Avenue, a property for which he paid too much, without Trump being president. And it’s really curious that Jared and Ivanka’s income has roughly tripled during the last three years, though neither takes a salary or works in their family businesses. What’s the source of that money, and how much of it has come from foreign governments?

And, of course, Trump has “earned” millions from his visits to his resorts at huge taxpayer expense. The whole family has grifted more money from his presidency than most of us can imagine.

12. I think their plastic surgeon

gives the entire plastic family a discount. Jared looks very "baby bottom smooth". The "boys" Beavis and Butthead, too. Eric's wife had lip implants and looks like Donald Duck. Fake as can be. Ze Forst Lay-Dee is afraid to smile, her face is pulled so tight. I guess Don the Con is beyond help. Those eye bags are getting saggier all the time. What a family, eh, and we are paying for their lifestyle.

21. Donnie Jr. gets misty eyed at Arlington and recalls his battles of...

Going on luxury hunts around the world to kill endangered species.
Jr. thinks he shares the battlefield experiences and acts of bravery.

Nobody in his toxic gene pool has told him that animals don't shoot back and recoil bruises are not battle wounds. Supreme Commander Trump will probably demand that Jr. should get the Congressional Medal of Honor next.

7. That's pretty well said.

Do some more.
You've given us a new exclamatory phrase, "God without a word processor".
Right up there with "oh the humanity".

8. For his many sins of course, and his supporters for enabling him

Exodus 23:25 ESV - "You shall serve the Lord your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you."

Psalm 103:3 ESV - "Who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases"

Revelation 22:18 ESV - "I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book"

Or maybe it's this one. Know anyone who has built his fortune on deceiving people?

“Jesus answered: ‘Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains” (Matthew 24:4-8).

We're in for a Biblical cleansing, but so far Donnie's still the anointed one. Send flowers?

18. Funny how the rich and greedy are rarely punished by God or anyone else.

Punishment is for the poor, which is why so many religions placate them with "but things will be great when you die.

great rant
