“Rotting cesspools of blood.” “These are savages, MS-13.” “Sir, there seems to be a misunderstanding.” “We would be glad to take them back, Sir.” “Barack Hussein Obama wouldn’t take them out.” These were quotes from Donald Trump’s announcement speech, which was so dull that CNN decided to cut out after twenty minutes and Fox News after thirty-five minutes.

After fifty minutes Trump started talking about the death penalty for drug dealers, (“Please don’t say that Sir, that’s not nice.”) Once again he told the story about how in China drug dealers are caught, arrested, tried and executed within 24 hours.

Yes, Donald Trump is back. The Lincoln Project wasted no time.

Being a glutton for punishment, I hung in and listened to the entire stupid speech. It was boring. There was not a single new idea. It was all a rehash of the same old crap — he even went on about how he’s going to find people who were discharged during the COVID crisis for not wearing a mask and how he’s going to get them an apology and “full back pay.” Or was that just people in the military? Can you discharge people in the military? I don’t know. My head’s going to explode. I’m traumatized.

“Peace Through Strength” he chimed in at the end. And he attempted to make a joke out of using the word “nuclear” but it fell flat.

Could it be? Could it be that Trump is going to bore everybody to death? Because if this is an example of where he’s going with his campaign, it is Dullsville.

“Clean out the festering rot and corruption of Washington, D.C.,” he intoned in the 59th minute. Clean yourself out, Donald. You’re the biggest player in any rot or corruption that we know about.

At 10:00 p.m. ET he griped about the Mar-a-Lago raid. Yawn.

Then he demanded “all votes counted by election night.” Can’t happen. Pure stupidity to even mention it.

I’ve seen many a presidential campaign launched. This reminds me of a toy boat in the bath tub by comparison. Dear Gawwwd. It’s going to be a lonnnng long way to November, 2024.

        • Yeah, but it’s interesting how people tend to overlook–or flat out ignore–what the text actually says.

          “No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

          Additionally, such a person needs to be CONFIRMED as having engaged, etc. For instance, that widely publicized story of Couy Griffin who was removed from office in New Mexico under the 14th Amendment: He was SUED by CREW and a JUDGE wrote the decision that removed Griffin from office.

          You cannot simply THINK/BELIEVE/SUSPECT someone is guilty of violating Section 3; it MUST be proved. You want to live in a society where an accusation is enough for guilt, move to China or Russia or some other place where there’s no rule of “law”–the law is whatever the authorities decide it is from day to day. Kind of like the country Trump and his supporters seem to have wanted.

  1. Based on how well his endorsees did this past go around, the knives will be out for him. Rethugs only care about power and to have power, you have to win. They have already labeled him a loser with a capital L.
