It has been approximately 35 years since the 2020 American presidential election began, and despite the fact that Joe Biden won the damn thing, it sure doesn’t feel that way. But we all knew that this would happen. We all knew that the overgrown man-child in the White House wouldn’t concede any defeat regardless of how definitive the results might have been, but knowing that never filled me with any sort of comfort. See, I’m genuinely horrified for what the next few months have in store for my country, and as of now there doesn’t seem to be any reprieve from the stress.
There’s no need to recap what’s been happening in America, because I’m pretty sure everyone on planet Earth is aware of the elderly man and his latest bout of temper tantrums. It’s shameful to say the least, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from the spray-tanned hobgoblin that’s routinely eroded our democracy for his personal gain.
But he isn’t the only problem. It’s the people around him, his cabinet, his employees and his supporters that continue to enable and encourage his behavior that scare me the most. These people, regardless of if Trump is dragged out of the White House or not, will still be around and in some cases remain in power. His supporters, the 70+ million people who voted for him, will still be around and eager to do whatever the president might decree via his daily deluge of Twitter vomit. This schmuck basically has an army of trigger-happy sycophants who will jump the second he gives the word, and that alone is nightmare inducing.
I fear that one of these days I’m going to wake up to the news that a legal way to stay in power has been utilized, ultimately burying the last vestigial bits of our democracy. This repugnant shit-stain is going to kick and scream as loudly as he can, and no one is going to actually stop him.
See, a lot of folks view inauguration day (January 20th) as an end point to all of this madness, but I don’t see it that way. To me, that day looks to be the apex of this clusterfuck, where Donnie and his supporters stand with their many guns outside of the White House ready for war with whomever dares to try and enter. It sounds absolutely fucking insane that this is a legitimate fear you can have, and not just a plot from a bad action movie.
I don’t know what happens next. I’ve been reassured by friends that are more politically minded than myself that nothing will come of the big baby’s tantrums, but I genuinely don’t have faith in that. For the longest time Americans lived in a shared reality, where those pesky numbers and facts actually meant something. But here in 2020, there are two realities that exist that either political party subscribes to. The democrats, for the most part, are still here on Earth where facts and evidence exist, while a lot of the Republicans and conservatives live in a magical world where they can shape reality into whatever they want like some sort of shitty version of Thanos.
The worst part of it all is that there’s nothing anyone can do to merge these two realities, solely because one side refuses to believe anything that their president doesn’t agree with. I truly hate that I’ve had to dedicate yet another blog post to this absolute nightmare that is American politics, but it’s genuinely hard to focus on anything else. We’re watching our democracy vanish before our eyes because of this buffoon. We’re letting our country be destroyed by a sexist, morally bankrupt, racist, charity defrauding, philandering, pedophiliac, draft-dodging, pandemic-denying, tax-evading piece of shit named Donald Trump.
If you’re a big Trump person, kindly go fuck yourself because I genuinely don’t know how you an call yourself an American anymore. You openly endorse this piece of shit and condone his heinous acts claiming he speaks for the little guy. The only little guy Trump has ever and will ever care about is his fuzzy little cheese doodle of a dick and it’s quite frankly surprising that you haven’t caught on to that yet.
Anywho, thanks for letting me get that off of my chest. Now if someone could help me figure out where I can buy a goddamned PlayStation 5, that would be appreciated.
