Parscale

I hope Parscale doesn't get Epstein'd!

Trump Denies Knowing Proud Boys

Today, Drumpf said he doesn't even know who The Proud Boys are. We know he's lying of course. But even if he didn't know who they were, the question was to condemn white supremacists. So that should tell him...duh...that the Proud Boys are white supremacists!

I Love Joe Biden, but....

I absolutely love Joe Biden, but why didn't he bring up Ivanka and Trumps' other corrupt children at least once when Trump kept calling out Hunter Biden??!

Parscale's Arrest

Did you see video of Parscale's arrest? Now that's how you arrest someone! Cops know how to do it...they just choose to do it in a horrific, brutalizing manner when they're arresting a black person!

Man....I Need To Get This Out!

So I have a neighbor who's got a Trump/Pence sticker on the back of his car. Whenever I go the supermarket (about the only place I go to nowadays!), I look to see if he's still got the sticker on his car. He's a nice guy, nice family....I always enjoy talking to them at block parties. He's a normal-type Republican, not a deplorable but still, we've never talked politics. So I'm always hoping, when I drive by his house, to see that sticker one day removed from his car.....but it's still there!

So as I'm bringing in my groceries, he's walking his dog by me. We make chit chat and the conversation turns to COVID. And he says "it is what it is....just something we have to live with!"

Well, I'm fuming inside but didn't show it. I said nicely "Hey, I know you support Trump....I see the bumper sticker on your car. So I don't want to talk politics, but, no we shouldn't have to just shrug our shoulders and accept the way things are. This could have been mitigated"

He says "Do you know how many miles I drive every day for my job? Every day we all live life with facing risks"

I said "Of course we all have to live our lives but we mitigate our risks. Don't you wear a seat belt when you drive? Don't you try and drive around the speed limit? Don't you make sure you're not under the influence when you drive?? COVID could have been mitigated!"

He said "Well one day this will all be over and we'll have a huge block party"

I didn't think I should push it anymore so I just smiled and said "That'll be nice"

Inside, there were so many more things that I wanted to say to him! Not 'say' .....there were more things I wanted to YELL at him!! I am just furious with these people!

Immigrants

Today, my next door neighbor was getting his roof replaced by Mexican (I think) workers. All day long, I could hear them playing Spanish songs...I absolutely loved hearing all the songs!

So then in the evening I walked over to the fence that divides our homes and got the attention of one of the workers to ask him something. He didn't speak any English so I mustered up my college Spanish and told him how much I've enjoyed listening to their music all day. And then I asked if he could play a Selena song. Well, 2 minutes later, he did! I told him how much I appreciated that and thanked him and some of the other workers

They are such hard workers and very sweet and friendly!

All I can say is....I'd rather have immigrants "invade" my neighborhood than white supremacists!!

PS....I caught the workers at just the right time....the Selena song was the last one for the day. After that, they left!

Economic coattails

At the debate, do you think Biden should say to Trump that he didn't build the great economy (pre covid) that he likes to brag about. Should Biden say to Trump's face that he's riding on Obama's and his economic coattails...that they handed him a strong, healthy economy?!

My 2 Cents For Republican Officials With Young Children

If you work in the Administration or are a Republican Representative/Senator.....and you have young children, my 2 cents is to.....Get.Out.Now!!

Those young children of yours will grow into teenagers and young adults and they could very well be angry as hell that you were an enabler and supporter to this piece of filth that we have sitting in The Oval Office!

You're probably thinking "No, that could never happen because we are raising our kids with our Republican values." All I have to say to that, is two words....Claudia Conway!

Claudia was raised by Kellyanne and George in their Republican-values home, but look what happened to their family!

When your children become teenagers and young adults, they will not continue to parrot you....they will learn things from outside the household as they grow up. And as they grow up, they will form their own opinions

I am sure that many of you know deep down (maybe not even that deep down), that you are working for or supporting someone who is cruel, vindictive, unintelligent, a liar, a bigot, a racist, a misogynist, a bully, a con man, and a bumbling fool! Is it really worth it to you that enabling this piece of excrement could cause real damage in your relationship with your child/ren in the future??

If you're in the Administration, get out now! If you're a Republican Representative or Senator, just stop supporting him, and start speaking up against him!

Be the person that your future teenager/young adult will be proud of! Just imagine later in life, that even though there was a time you stood by Drumpf, they will be SO proud of you for waking up and making such a bold and brave decision to divorce yourself of him and that you put your conscience and integrity and country over everything else!

Think long and hard about it

My Question for Drumpf for Last Night

When Drumpf said last night that he thought he's handled the pandemic well, I wish Stephanopoulos had said "When Obama was President and there were 2 Ebola deaths during his administration, you had tweeted out that he should resign. So please explain to me how you can think that you've done a good job with COVID with 200,000 deaths."

Meghan McCain Literally Rolled Her Eyes

Meghan Mccain literally rolled her eyes today on The View when Joy Behar was talking about the climate change crisis. And then Meghan said she doesn't see Climate Change as a priority!

I really wish Joy or Whoopi or Sunny or Sarah had said to her virtual face "What is it with you Republicans....you're only concerned about something when you're affected! Maybe if the air quality of your precious Arizona gets affected by these wildfires, then maybe you'll start singing a different tune, Meghan!!"
