Will Trump get even a single African American vote now come the election?

The first tweet and bannered follow up.


The follow up revealed.

Cheeto, are you happy yet? Our country is in turmoil.



The context: Eddie Glaude, chair of Princeton's Department of African American Studies, said the violence reflected distrust of government and police, as the nation copes with a pandemic that has brought massive unemployment and loss of life.

"We’re on the cusp of a kind of desperation in this country," he said on MSNBC during live coverage of the pandemonium.

I saw that this morning, and all I could think was: ughhhhh, so not my President! Never was, never will be. 45's legacy will be one of bloodshed, violence, bigotry, and hatred.

I thought the state already asked for the National Guard to be deployed.

Tump seems to be threatening to federalize the Minnesota Guard.

Remember when the President approved a drone strike on an American citizen who was an active enemy combatant in a war zone ?

Now realize that the President just threatened to have the Army shoot civilians in an American City.

Peak Dictator right here.

Is it that easy to be rid of all of what he's wrought? I find it harder to purge myself of all responsibility, as though all of this happened around me without my participation, benefit, or assent (if not consent).

I disagree with him, and I loathe what he does too. But he claims me, and he claims you, in his imagined Great America - whether we like it or not. Not politically, of course - he condemns us there. But we've got the right goods to be good, loyal, productive Americans, and that carries a weight of its own. For me, anyhow.

It is a distraction from the distractions. The Minneapolis riot posts dilute the COVID-19 posts.

Sure is. CNN removed their Covid case and death count graphic.
