I daresay that this TIME Magazine cover is not going to grace the hallways of the golf facility at Mar-a-Lago.
The irony here is that this is an accurate portrayal of what Joe Biden walked into, whereas Donald Trump’s parting shot at his last pep rally/departure on Air Force One was to claim that “they have the foundation to do something really spectacular. And again, we put it in a position like it’s never been before, despite the worst plague to hit since, I guess you’d say, 1917.” He’s right that he put the government “in a position like it’s never been before.” I’ll go along with that. And the last pandemic was from 1918 to 1920, but Trump can’t get it. He’s unteachable, but you knew that.
And of course Marco Rubio didn’t wait to get his two cents in. He said that Biden has “failed to unify the country.” Dude, he took office Wednesday afternoon and it’s Friday morning. And Rubio isn’t the only one with a warped time sense. Sean Hannity was talking about Biden’s “disastrous first week.” Weeks are now measured as being 36 hours long, and nobody told me? So that means days are five hours long? Well, I can’t say I’m surprised. Trump world is a different planet, we’ve all said that.
Kudos to TIME Magazine for its ongoing memorialization of the issues of our time through art. This picture is worth a thousand words and then some.
