JUST DO IT: Trump’s Debt Ceiling Dumbassery Gives Democrats Leeway to Pass a Voting Rights Bill

In November of 2020, Donald Trump was evicted from the White House by a substantial majority of the American people. But for nearly a year now he has been a private citizen with big friggin’ mouth. No former president has ever been so infatuated with his own voice that he couldn’t just shut the hell up for five minutes.

Donald Trump, Pennywise

For the most part, Trump’s babbling has been focused on undermining democracy and inciting violence in order to impose a dictatorship and evade accountability for his multitude of crimes. However, Trump may have just contributed the first bit of positive blabber in a sea of incoherence and seething animus. Of course, it wasn’t intentional, and he surely has no idea what he’s talking about, but with Trump’s psychotic ranting we have to take good news wherever we can find it.

On Friday Trump posted a message (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) that he intended as a swipe at Republican Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell. It began…

“Mitch McConnell, the Broken Old Crow, has just conceded, for absolutely nothing and for no reason, the powerful Debt Ceiling negotiating block, which was the Republicans’ first-class ticket for victory over the Democrats.”

Trump is still demonstrating his ignorance of economics and what would happen if the United States defaulted on its debt. Either that or he knows that it would send the nation into a severe recession or worse, and that’s what he wants because it would reflect badly on President Biden, and he doesn’t care who gets hurt. Trump went on to complain that McConnell was afraid to use the debt ceiling to kill the “Build Back Worse Bill” and the “Unfrastructure Deal,” as he calls those bills in his typically infantile fashion. This wasn’t the first time that Trump has issued these mind-numbingly stupid threats. He continued saying that…

“The Old Crow also allowed a breaking up of the filibuster, which allows the Democrats now to establish precedent for changing the number of Justices on the Supreme Court and, perhaps most importantly of all, a so-called Voting Rights Bill, which will make it almost impossible for Republicans to get elected in the future.”

Really? So Trump is now conceding that there is precedent for a carve out in the filibuster rules to permit expanding the Supreme Court and passing a voting rights bill. That’s a generous concession that Democrats should take him up on immediately. McConnell shouldn’t mind given that he’s been the target of Trump’s insults for so long and it might teach him a lesson. Trump called McConnell a sick bird three times in this tweet. Although, does anyone else think that when Trump says that “the Broken Old Crow is a loser, and very bad for the Republican Party,” that he is actually talking about himself?

Trump is not just a raging idiot. He is also a flaming hypocrite. With regard to the debt ceiling being used for negotiating purposes, here is what Trump said a couple of years ago:

“I can’t imagine anybody ever even thinking of using the debt ceiling as a negotiating wedge. When I first came into office I asked about the debt ceiling. I understand debt ceilings and I certainly understand the highest rated credit ever in history and the debt ceiling. And I said, I remember, to Sen. Schumer and to Nancy Pelosi, ‘Would anybody ever use that to negotiate with?’ They said ‘Absolutely not.’ That’s a sacred element of our country. They can’t use the debt ceiling to negotiate. That’s a very, very sacred thing in our country. Debt ceiling. We can never play with it.”

So McConnell is a loser for not using “the powerful Debt Ceiling negotiating block,” even though he says that it’s “sacred” and “can’t [be used] to negotiate.” It’s astonishing that anyone could still support this Olympic-class imbecile. But Trump has managed to capture a slice of the American populace that is dependent on having a cult leader to worship. It must be true what comedian Ricky Gervais said…

  1. Ricky Gervais is 100% correct! It really IS only blissful for the ignorant ppl – I’ve known & was related to a few – nothin’ but a pain in the butt!

    “…has just conceded, for absolutely nothing and for no reason…”
    “For absolutely nothing &…” Trump slips that in so naturally. that’s why he’s calling Mitch a loser ~ he got absolutely nothing for it. Trump has said, “all relationships are transactional” & for him they all are ~ you [he] get something for it in return. ALWAYS. Never gives up anything w/o him getting something of value out of it! (The “…& for no reason” part is separate.) Mitch conceded & got nothing for it. That’s ‘big loser’ to Trump.
    Wonder what Trump got for our surrender to Taliban in Afghanistan? We got ‘nada’ from that ‘loser’ deal he made; but he sure as hell did!

    “…so-called Voting Rights Bill, which will make it almost impossible for Republicans to get elected in the future.” If you can’t attract enuff voters, like with a Party Platform, plans, then yes! That’s how America’s democratically elected form of gov’t is supposed to work. Candidates convince voters to vote for them & whoever gets most votes…
    Well, worked kinda’ like that for what…245yrs?
    GOP & Trump, literally, don’t want voters to be able to elect their own gov’t anymore. GOP loves all that “dark” campaign $$, but not the part where voters get to choose who they want. Trump so stupid, says it right out loud. But it’s ok. No one doing anything about the GOP removing Americans’ right to vote & choose our leaders from what RNC & DNC offer up, anyway.
    The ONLY WAY we can save democracy at all, is if Pres. Biden uses power of Executive Order to preserve our Voting Rights NOW, B4 it’s too late. Then he should declare the GOP a ‘dead Party’, due to attempted bloodless coup & being traitors to our nation & gov’t. IMHO

  2. This little article here is the most ardent argument for anyone with just a mere bit of common sense that Trump, along with Trumpism adherents is the most single biggest threat to American democracy that has ever occurred…

  3. Amen to that!!!
    Makes me wonder why the supposed leaders of this nation say & do NOTHING about it?! And, in fact, act as if there’s “nothing to see here” & just continue plodding along, ever so slowly, at whatever it is they normally do in DC –when our country, democracy & freedom –our way of life — is NOT under attack!
    Our America needs defending, by those whose job it is & who have the power to act. But most of them are MIA. Leadership is lacking. Maybe we can get the extremely well-funded “Defense Dept” to actually defend us for a change?!? The enemy is right here in the open. (If they won’t then it’s time to scrap that overly expensive, misnamed dept. & start over from scratch!??
