They were put up in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90, 2000s, '10s

It is worse than you thought. Pro confederate monuments, roads, parks, schools, flags, and other crap have been part of America for years. Up to 2019 when they repaired a confederate statue on the grounds of Camp Chase in Columbus, OH (POW camp for confederate soldiers)

Trump, "If we stop testing right now, we'd have very few cases, if any." 100% Gaslighting

And why is Trump working so hard to gas light America today? Because his "snake oil aka
HCQ was exposed as a fraud and a scam today by the FDA.

And this is all on Trump and company and those (Mitch McConnell I'm looking @ you)
who supported the Russian/GOP coup and or didn't hold him accountable in the US
Senate.

Good God in Butter. On MSNBC about 5 minutes ago @ West Point

Donald Trump just saluted the statue of Douglas Macarthur. WTF?

The shot was from too far away for me to see who was with him
but I imagine that the Commander of West Point or the senior
officer who was with him must be dying inside.

This is one big reality show to Trump.

BTW thanx to Trump we are going to pass the # of deaths in WW I today (116,000) with the # of deaths
from C-19.

Republican Bruce Bartlett: "He Is Even Dumber Than We Thought"

Four years in office has only convinced more Americans that the Trump might not be a stable genius.

A Washington Post–ABC News poll taken the last week of May 2020 asked Americans, “Do you think Trump has the mental sharpness it takes to serve effectively as president?” Fifty-two percent of respondents said no, with only 46 percent saying yes.

snip

It appears that Trump’s performance in office has had a negative effect on perceptions of his mental acuity. The Quinnipiac poll tracked perceptions of Trump’s mental sharpness from 2016 through 2018, asking, “Would you say that Donald Trump is intelligent, or not?” When first asked in November 2016, 74 percent of people said yes, and only 21 percent said no. A year later, however, those answering in the affirmative had fallen to 55 percent, while those in the negative camp rose to 41 percent. Subsequent polls found roughly the same ratio.

snip

Further evidence that Trump is widely viewed as something shy of the sharpest knife in the drawer comes from another, far-from-leading query pollsters have posed about him. In September 2017, a Washington Post–ABC News poll asked people an open-ended question: “What one word best describes your impression of Trump? Just the one word that best describes him?” The first most common term to describe him was “incompetent.” Other related characterizations in the top 10 descriptors included “idiot,” “ignorant,” and “unqualified.”

snip

Of course, Trump regularly refers to himself as a “very stable genius.” As proof, he often mentions that he got an undergraduate degree from the prestigious Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania, after spending his first two years at Fordham. However, there is no evidence that he was anything other than an ordinary student. He didn’t make the list of matriculating students in his class who graduated with honors. Reportedly, one of his professors, William T. Kelly, later disparaged Trump as one of the dumbest students he ever had.

********

The GOP is now trying to cut ties from Trump. Sorry, too late GOP he is yours.

Is this news that Trump is an idiot? In his first few months in office Trump said that the problem with the
USPS (post office) is that they pick up and delivers packages.

We are at 110,000 dead and 2 million cases of C-19

How do you spin that?

White House compares Trump's church visit to Churchill

White House compares Trump's church visit to Churchill

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday compared President Trump’s photo opportunity in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church to former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s examination of World War II bombing damage in 1941.

The press secretary likened the controversial walk by Trump, which was immediately preceded by police aggressively pushing peaceful protesters out of Lafayette Square, not only to the famous Churchill visit but also to several notable moments in U.S. presidential history.

“Through all of time, we have seen presidents and leaders across the world who have had leadership moments and very powerful symbols that were important for a nation to see at any given time to show a message of resilience and determination,” she said, "Like Churchill, we saw him inspecting the bombing damage. It sent a powerful message of leadership to the British people.”

snip

On Wednesday, McEnany said authorities used appropriate force in clearing the protesters, noting a statement from U.S. Park Police that described demonstrators throwing bricks and frozen water bottles at authorities.

(So the protesters were carrying frozen water bottles on them? Or did they have portable freezers? )

“I think U.S. Park [Police], when having bricks thrown at them and frozen water bottles, had the right to act,” McEnany told reporters. “They acted with the appropriate level of force to protect themselves, to protect the average citizenry and to protect the peaceful protesters who were among them as well.”
