White House is considering a Trump speech to the nation on race and unity

I can see it now. Trump at the podium with a flame thrower instead of a microphone.

1. To have a black woman heckler

To through him off his game before the speech. Just ask him about his advocacy for roughing up suspects. That got cheers from cops in 2017.

3. Or the Central Park 5. Or the whole birtherism bullshit

He wasn’t just using racist dog whistles.

He used a bullhorn and was overtly racist

The experience of the poor persecuted Mike Flynn to the questioning of those teenagers.

5. Trump retweeted Glenn Beck and Candace Owens bad-mouthing

George Floyd. Her exact words: "He (George) was not a good person."

Trump can STFU forever on this subject.

Why do they think this is going to be a good idea?

7. Oh, fuck that.

That's like Hitler making all of the Jews, gays and anyone else he was getting ready to round up and torture for years, sit down and listen to his shit rants. No one wants to hear him try to justify his incitements to violence against black people and anyone who wants black people treated equal under the law. Is he going to hold another "a Bible" upside down again?

You know he said that when asked if that was his Bible, right? He said it was, "a Bible." Fucker doesn't have a Bible. Just like the fucker doesn't know jack shit about how to treat people of different races and backgrounds like human beings. He doesn't have empathy or compassion. I don't see how he could possibly pull it off. Most of the time, he doesn't even try, because he knows he cannot fake empathy.

He should keep his condescending mouth shut, if he knows what it good for him. Then again, let him speechify his shitty tweets. It'll make him drop in the polls and lose even harder come November.

13. Thought I read he used both the Bible his mother gave him and

Abe Lincoln's Bible on inauguration day to take his oath...Probably had to get one of those out of some Tower's storage unit amenity.

Begs that old, old question: Do you still hate your mother?

With him reading some speech written by Javanka. And then him turning into "Twitter Trump" raging online after people talk about how lame his speecn was.

10. I'm. Sure. It. Would. Be. Very. Gripping. And. Persuasive.

A thoroughly wooden delivery, picking off the words from the teleprompter like a lonely sniper at his post. Just off camera an aide sits with his hand hovering over a button that delivers an electric shock if Trump strays one word from the script.

18. Maybe he could...

Maybe he could tell us about how a bundle of sticks is stronger than one stick? Fasci.

Or, here is a tried and true, canned speech that would fit and Miller can do a few alterations, (fill in communist with democrats, etc.) to update it and make it relevant. It will be perfect:

“More than 14 years have passed since that ill-fated day when, blinded by promises at home and abroad, the German volk [people] lost sight of the most valuable assets of our past and of our Reich, its honour and its freedom – and thus lost everything. Since those days of treachery, the Almighty has withheld His blessing from our Volk. Dissension and hatred have made their way into our midst. In the most profound distress, millions of the best German men and women from all walks of life watch as the unity of the nation vanishes and dissolves in a muddle of political and egotistical opinions, economic interests and differences…

The misery of our volk is appalling! The starving millions of unemployed proletarians in industry are being followed by the impoverishment of the entire Mittelstand [middle-class] and artisan professions. When this disintegration ultimately reaches the German peasants, we will be confronted by a catastrophe of unfathomable dimensions. For not only will the Reich disintegrate, but with it a 2000-year-old inheritance, the most valuable assets of human culture and civilisation.

The warning signs of this approaching disintegration are all about us. In a single gigantic offensive of willpower and violence, the communist method of madness is attempting to poison and disrupt the volk, which is shaken and uprooted to its innermost core…

Peasants, workers, and bourgeoisie must all join together to provide the building blocks for the new Reich. The government will therefore regard it as its first and foremost duty to re-establish Volksgemeinschaft – the unity of spirit and will of our volk. It will preserve and defend the foundations upon which the power of our nation rests. It will extend its strong, protecting hand over Christianity as the basis of our entire morality, and the family as the germ cell of the body of our volk and State. It will reawaken in our volk, beyond the borders of rank and class, its sense of national and political unity, and its resultant duties. It will establish reverence for our great past and pride in our old traditions as the basis for the education of our German youth. It will declare a merciless war against spiritual, political and cultural nihilism. Germany must not and will not drown in anarchistic communism…

Resolved and true to our oath, we will — in view of the present Reichstag’s inability to support this work — ask the German volk itself to take on this task we call our own. Reich President von Hindenburg has called upon us and given us the order to use our own unity to restore to the nation the chance for recovery. Thus we now appeal to the German volk to take part in signing this deed of reconciliation.

The government wants to work – and it will work. It was not this government which led the German nation into ruin for 14 years. This government wants to lead the nation to the top once more. It is determined to pay the debt of 14 years in four years. But it cannot make the work of reconstruction dependent upon the approval of those who are to blame for the collapse.

The Marxist parties and their fellow travellers have had 14 years to prove their prowess. The result is a heap of ruins. Now, German volk, give us four years, and then pass judgment upon us!

True to the order of the Field Marshal, we shall begin. May Almighty God look mercifully upon our work, lead our will on the right path, bless our wisdom, and reward us with the confidence of our volk. We are not fighting for ourselves, but for Germany!”

We know he’s full of it, but it might upset his white extremist voters.

Ok, do it. I won’t be watching.

Him plodding along monotone as he squints to read a speech he only saw five minutes earlier, followed by an orgasmic reaction from right wing personalities about how presidential he was...

32. Totally agree except for one detail.

It won't only be right wing personalities who are orgasmic, several supposed moderates like Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, Van Jones, etc... will also be all tingly. CNN will have a panel where half are right wingers a third are those tingly moderates, and one or two are progressives and they will debate tingles or no tingles.

It will be "presidential" because he didn't shit his pants on national television.
