Despite having been unceremoniously evicted from the White House five months ago, Donald Trump continues to beg for relevancy from the confines of his Mar-a-Lago bunker. Never mind that he is the subject of numerous criminal and civil lawsuits. Or that he was just exposed for having defrauded his own supporters (again).
His plaintive yelps coming in the form of angry, inarticulate press releases since he has been banished from Twitter and other social media. The latest outburst from Trumplandia is a blasphemous Easter bulletin announcing his displeasure with what he calls “the Radical Left Democrats” and their “WOKE CANCEL CULTURE,” whatever that means. Trump’s communique to his glassy-eyed cult disciples is a call to arms for Republicans to do precisely the same thing for which he is condemning Democrats:
President Trump on the GA boycotts:
“Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck. Don’t go back to their products until they relent. We can play the game better than them.”

“For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or stated in any way that offends them. Now they are going big time with WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections.”
The irony of Trump whining about Democrats engaging in boycotts is hysterical. Trump has called for boycotts of too many American companies to count. He is, in fact, the King of Cancel Culture, boycotting dozens of companies “when anything from that company is done or stated in any way that offends” him personally. That includes his loyal Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News, along with Harley-Davidson, CNN, Apple, Macy’s, Univision, Mexico, HBO, Rolling Stone, and AT&T. Now he’s adding some more names to his enemies list:
“It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back—we have more people than they do—by far! Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck. Don’t go back to their products until they relent. We can play the game better than them. They didn’t even get approval of State Legislatures, which is mandated under the U.S. Constitution.”
First of all, if Trump had more people than the Democrats, he wouldn’t be hiding out in Palm Beach firing off hostile missives in celebration of Easter, the day commemorating the resurrection of his alleged lord and savior. Secondly, there is nothing in the Constitution that mandates the approval of state legislatures (or election officials, which is what the former Idiot-in-Chief meant) to conduct business as they see fit in accordance with the law. As usual, Trump is just making stuff up.
It’s also notable that Trump’s amended enemies list is way too short to encompass all the companies that have expressed opposition to the GOP election tampering campaign. The Washington Post reports that…
“Nearly 200 companies on Friday joined in a strong statement against proposals that threaten to restrict voting access in dozens of states, in a further sign of corporate willingness to speak out on social justice issues.”
Along with the companies Trump called out above, others include Dow, Estee Lauder, Hewlett-Packard, Levi’s, Lyft, Uber, Morningstar, Paypal, Salesforce, Under Armour, Univision, and nearly 200 more. Will Trump insist that his flock boycott all of them? Undeterred by reality, Trump went on to rant that…
“They rigged and stole our 2020 Presidential Election, which we won by a landslide, and then, on top of that, boycott and scare companies into submission. Never submit, never give up! The Radical Left will destroy our Country if we let them. We will not become a Socialist Nation. Happy Easter!”
So Trump is still peddling the “Big Lie” that the election was “stolen” from him. And he’s still framing it in the way that incited a deadly insurrection on Capitol Hill, with pleas to “never submit” because “they” will “destroy our Country.”
To be clear, the voter suppression legislation in Georgia, Texas and 40+ other states has nothing to do with election integrity. Not a single proponent of those bills can cite any voting irregularities beyond minor infractions, and most of those were by Republicans.
It is no coincidence that this surge of suppressive legislating came immediately following an election that saw Democrats win the presidency and a majority in the Senate. That election was certified by all 50 states, including those with Republican leadership, some of whom are sponsors of these bogus bills.
So the motivation for this isn’t securing elections. It’s manipulating them to quash Democratic voters and, indeed, democracy. And if Trump gets his way there will be more seditious uprisings, more pain and suffering, and more disseminations of purposefully inflammatory rhetoric aimed at inciting riots on behalf of the traitorous cretin that American just cast out.
