Golden Showers, Russia, and Comeuppance

I looked up “Trump golden shower” on Google this morning and the first hit that came up was Trump, Russian Spies and the infamous ‘Golden Shower Memos’ by Newsweek.

As I read the story a few thoughts occurred to me:

  1. This could, of course, be fake news–at least the golden shower aspect of it–so I should be skeptical.
  2. But knowing who Donald Trump is as a person: a man obsessed with sex (and gold), who’s bragged about sexually assaulting women (and done it), and loves himself some Russia… it’s probably true. It’s certainly plausible, right?
  3. The longer he’s in office, the more shit like this we’ll find out about, and the more embarrassing it’ll be that he’s our President.

And it truly points out how dangerous and damaging blind Republican partisanship has become in this country, because that’s what got this fool elected. I know, I know, I’m supposed to just say partisanship and imply that Democrats are just as bad, but the truth is they’re not–and we’ll get to that later–but there’s a message Republicans/conservatives need to understand first. Let’s make a list:

  1. You fucked up. Badly. Just admit it: this guy has no business whatsoever being in the White House, and you all had more than enough information to know it before you cast your stupid, idiotic vote for him. Understand this: that single act might well be the worst, dumbest decision you make in your entire life. Seriously.
  2. The longer Trump is in office, the worse this is going to get. Guy isn’t even President yet and has still managed to be utterly enveloped in scandal during the whole transition period. Look: his picks for cabinet are shitty, his temperament is that of a spoiled 12-year-old princess, and the Republican plan for the next four years–take everyone’s healthcare away; pass huge, deficit-exploding tax cuts for the rich and powerful; and allow corporations to do whatever the hell they want–isn’t going to make American great again. No, the longer he’s in office, the shittier things are going to get… and guess what?
  3. Republicans will get the blame. You all supported Trump. Your elected officials, like cowards Jason Chaffetz and Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, supported Trump. You own the guy. His shit is your shit. His racism is your racism. His pussy grab is your pussy grab. His golden showers are your golden showers. And the mess that is the GOP agenda is only going to magnify what an incredibly fucked-up-con of a party you’ve got.
  4. Now hear this–your only way out is to: A) apologize, B) stop being partisan hacks, and C) become ordinary, well-meaning American citizens. That doesn’t mean you have to abandon your values–whether low taxes, pro-gun, or pissed off about abortion–but it does mean you have to stop getting all your news from Fox and Breitbart and Right Wing Radio, because they’re lying to you (all the time). It does mean putting your country–you know, the good ole US of A–before your party. And it also means that even though you find us liberals to be annoying, condescending, elitist assholes, you’ve got to admit that at the very least, we’re smart, well-educated assholes, and on facts and policy, you might want consider what we have to say rather than dismissing it because you don’t like our horn-rimmed glasses.
  5. Finally, a warning to those of you who aren’t ready to admit to or succumb to the truth above: befuckingware. This is not a battle you will win, and you know how I know that (aside from the fact there are far more of us–see the popular vote)? Because Trump is a fucking buffoon who’s got more skeletons in his closet than Satan, and if that’s not bad enough, just wait until he’s President! Wait til he get’s caught saying something outrageously stupid or offensive to a foreign adversary–gee, like I don’t know, Russia. Do you really think this is going to go well based on what we’ve seen? If so, go ahead and dig in motherfuckers: call every Trump disparaging story “fake news” and keep yelling at people who don’t look like you–you’re only going to make things worse, and it will all come crashing down on your head, stripping you naked for all to see your ugliness. So please, I’m begging you, repent.

Oh, and just to cover the partisan thing: how do we know liberals wouldn’t have done the same?

Because Democrats wouldn’t have voted for someone like Trump. We would never have supported, as voters or as a party, a candidate who didn’t release his tax returns. Or said racist things about Mexicans and African Americans. Or bragged about sexual assault. Or wanted to ban Muslims or create a registry based on religion. Or appeared not to understand or have read the Constitution. Or repeatedly lied on the campaign trail. And I get that many Republicans don’t actually like the stuff Trump said/did above, but partisanship allowed them to overlook these flaws.

But back to the point, no: most Democrats would not support such a person–fuck, he wouldn’t have even made it through the first few primary states.

In addition, if the reverse had been true–if Democrats had run a loose-canon asshole and Republicans had run an extremely well-qualified candidate, but with whom we disagreed on policy–many Democrats would have defected and voted for the Republican. I would have. And far fewer of us would have justified a vote for the loose-canon on the basis of using a private email server or the Benghazi bullshit, because at the end of the day, those are fake scandals that don’t matter. But I digress…

As I’ve established on this blog many a time, Karma is a big, big bitch. And the Republican Party–and its voters–have spent the last eight years piling up unconscionable sins upon their head.
