Kung Flu

Donald Trump may not be qualified or competent enough to be President of the United States, but one thing he is very competent at, is name calling.  From “Sleepycreepy” Joe Biden, “Crooked Hillary” Clinton, “Mini Mike” Michael Bloomberg, “Slimeball” James Comey, ‘Al Frankenstein” Al Franken, “Basically braindead Bernie” Bernie Sanders and many many more.

Such bizarre presidential behaviour. But the strange thing is Trump’s base and supporters like the name calling. They like the way he ‘tells it like it is’. Where has social decorum gone?

But now Trump has come up with a nickname for covid-19. Kung Flu!

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Monday defended President Donald Trump’s use of the term “Kung Flu” in referring to COVID-19 at a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

McEnany said Trump’s rhetoric Saturday was an indictment of China rather than Asian Americans. Experts, however, said that besides being offensive to both groups, the excuse doesn’t hold up because Asians and Asian Americans are often viewed as a monolith because of implicit bias, the history of the racial group in the U.S. and the current political climate.

Asian American advocacy groups responded to Trump’s use of the racist phrase, which he used after joking that the coronavirus “has more names than any disease in history.”

“I can name ‘kung flu,'” Trump told the crowd. “I can name 19 different versions of names.”

“It’s not a discussion about Asian Americans, who the president values and prizes as citizens of this great country,” McEnany said. “It is an indictment of China for letting the virus get here.”

But Andy Kang, executive director of the civil rights nonprofit Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Chicago, told NBC News that given the political and racial environment of the U.S., Trump’s words could have harmful consequences.

“We’re currently in the middle of a global pandemic that has caused a tremendous amount of suffering, both in economic terms and, more importantly, lives lost. On top of that, it’s a presidential election year,” he said. “With such an emotionally charged political atmosphere, it’s irresponsible and reckless for our political leaders and candidates for our nation’s highest office to engage in rhetoric that incites xenophobic scapegoating and violence.”

Trump going ahead with campaign rally

WASHINGTON — Officials in Tulsa, Okla., are warning that President Trump’s planned campaign rally on Saturday — his first in over three months — is likely to worsen an already troubling spike in coronavirus infections and could become a disastrous “super spreader.”

They are pleading with the Trump campaign to cancel the event, slated for a 20,000-person indoor arena — or at least move it outdoors.

“It’s the perfect storm of potential over-the-top disease transmission,” said Bruce Dart, the executive director of the Tulsa health department. “It’s a perfect storm that we can’t afford to have.”

The Obama Comedy Speech That Crushed and Infuriated Trump

Donald Trumpster has been attacking former president Barack Obama relentlessly since he took office. Trump never liked Obama from the start. This was evident when Trump went after Obama to prove he was born in the United States, part of the Birther movement. Trump would not let up on the issue, this was when I realized Trump was a charlatan and complete idiot.

Fast backward to the Correspondents Dinner in 2011. Trump was at this dinner, he hasn’t gone as president, scared to get roasted by comedians, chickenshit. Obama took a swipe at Trump during his routine. Watch as Trump is just seething at his table. Trump has hated Obama ever since, even though it was all in good fun. But Trumpster is one of the most spiteful, mean, unpleasant grudge holders that I have ever watched. If you make fun of him, he will never let it go, and in the evil recesses of his dark mind he actually wants to kill you.

Trump with that golden blow-dried confection he calls his hair.

Fool Organizers at Pro-Trump Rally play ‘Rockin the Free World’

This song is not exactly espousing the American dream.

“Rockin’ In The Free World”

There’s colors on the street
Red, white and blue
People shufflin’ their feet
People sleepin’ in their shoes
But there’s a warnin’ sign
on the road ahead
There’s a lot of people sayin’
we’d be better off dead
Don’t feel like Satan,
but I am to them
So I try to forget it,
any way I can.Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world
Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world.

I see a woman in the night
With a baby in her hand
Under an old street light
Near a garbage can
Now she puts the kid away,
and she’s gone to get a hit
She hates her life,
and what she’s done to it
There’s one more kid
that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love,
never get to be cool.

Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world
Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world.

We got a thousand points of light
For the homeless man
We got a kinder, gentler,
Machine gun hand
We got department stores
and toilet paper
Got styrofoam boxes
for the ozone layer
Got a man of the people,
says keep hope alive
Got fuel to burn,
got roads to drive.

Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world
Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world.
