Biden’s First Steps

Here’s a quick look at what Biden’s been up to in the first day and a half of his administration.

For the past 4-5 years, I woke up every morning and immediately grabbed my phone to see what had blown up overnight thanks to Trump’s incompetency. I didn’t have to do that this morning, and I gotta tell you, that was pretty goddamn amazing. It’s been nice the last couple of weeks, waking up in the morning and not having to dread what that fool crapped out on Twitter overnight.

Let’s keep that up. Trump should be left, sullen and silenced, to rot into irrelevance in Florida. I don’t know if we’ll actually get that privilege. I’m not sure if the media is capable of ignoring Trump. I hope they are. Continue reading “Biden’s First Steps”

Bye, Trump.

I hope the rest of your life sucks in every conceivable way.

I want Trump to live out the remainder of his life feeling exactly the way we’ve all felt these last four years: drowning in an interminable miasma of grief, fear, exhaustion, and impotent rage. I would ask for shame and embarrassment, too, but I don’t think he’s capable of those.

400,000

There are 400,000 Americans dead of COVID-19 as of today.

As of today, over 400,000 Americans have died of COVID-19. It took about 36 days to go from 300,000 deaths to 400,000. Experts are predicting 500,000 deaths before the end of February.

About two Americans a minute are dying of COVID-19.

At noon tomorrow, Donald Trump, the worst president in American history, leaves office. I hope to fuck Joe Biden is capable of cleaning up the mess Trump left behind.

Things to Read:

The attempted coup is not yet over.

Hold on tight. This will not be over soon.

Trump will leave office. Joe Biden will be president. That will happen at noon on January 20.

Until then, things are going to be scary and probably dangerous. After that, Trump’s cultists and various associated Nazis and white supremacists will fracture and we’ll be facing a serious domestic terrorism problem, backed by a population of fools who, if not quite terrorists themselves, will certainly be happy to egg them on.

“Unity” with Republicans, who helped create this problem, will not solve this. Let’s all hope Joe Biden has better plans than that.
