Sup bro dudes, it’s your boy, back to tell you about the latest insanity that has pegged my mind these past couple weeks. THE DEATH OF DEMOCRACY! HOORAY! IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING!
COVID-19 has reached the White House. President Donald Trump revealed early Friday morning that he and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for the coronavirus.
On September 27, 2020 the New York Times released a bombshell report stating that President Donald Trump only paid $750 in income tax the year he won the presidential election and another $750 during the first year of his presidency.
Fuck. That’s the only word appropriate right now, in all honesty. Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away last week at the age of 87.
Earlier this month, the nation marked the nineteenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks with our usual solemnity, care, and grief. Photos of the burning World Trade Center were once again splashed across social media, lest anyone get the impression that they had forgotten the event which so scarred our collective consciousness.
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump issued a series of 7 pardons and 4 commutions. Despite the president’s own legal trouble with impeachment and numerous accounts of sexual assault or harassment, the president did not hold back when exercising his presidential power to pardon. According to CNN, the reasons for said pardons were extremely vague. The president is quoted as saying “These are all people that you have to see the recommendations. I rely on recommendations, very importantly.”
Hopp delivers a powerful argument as to how Trump supporters have directly influenced the polarization of American society and disintegration of American democracy over the past five years
Donald J. Trump has become the third president to be impeached. On December 18th, the House of Representatives voted to pass the two articles introduced, both on near-party line votes. The articles, for abuse of power and obstruction of congress, were passed on the strength of the Democratic caucus alone, with neither receiving a vote from a single Republican. An historic vote, Trump has now joined Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton as the only presidents to be impeached by the House. The charges stem from the July 25th phone call between President Trump and newly elected Ukranian President Vlodymir Zelensky, during which President Trump appeared to ask Mr. Zelensky to open an investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden, and his business dealings with large Ukranian companies. The caveat– that is, the quid pro quo of it all– is that routine military aid for Ukraine, several hundred million dollars of it, had been held up for the past few weeks before this, leading some to believe that Mr. Trump was conditioning the aid on Mr. Zelensky’s willingness to open an investigation into one of the President’s premier political rivals.
In a regular society, mistakes are made – it’s a natural human phenomenon. Perfection may be something we strive for, but it’s impossible to achieve. People have to learn to take their mistakes, apologize for them, and use it to improve themselves in the future. Unfortunately, this isn’t a skill President Trump has seemed to master yet.
The President of the United States rounded out August the same way that dozens of freshmen boys at Barnyard did: by getting rejected.
