Trump Makes Memorial Day All About Himself, Attacking the Judges in His Cases as ‘Human Scum’

For as long as Donald Trump has been a public figure, he has been known as a compulsive self-promoter. There is virtually no subject that he won’t hijack as an opportunity to shamelessly exalt himself or viciously malign his foes. This is especially notable on holidays when most of the American people are united in paying tribute to people or events that have contributed to them or their country. That includes everything from Independence Day to Mother’s Day.

Donald Trump, Saving Cadet Bone Spurs

One of the most revered days of remembrance is Memorial Day. It’s a day when Americans honor those who gave everything for the preservation of the gifts of freedom and democracy that are sometimes taken for granted. But true to form, Trump can be relied on to tarnish these tributes in favor of exploiting the occasion to denigrate others. It’s particularly loathsome considering his long held disrespect for the military and those who serve.

SEE THIS: UH-OH: Fox News Confirms that Trump Called Fallen Soldiers Losers and Suckers

On this Memorial Day, Trump behaved exactly as one might expect. He diminished the service of patriots in order to launch attacks on his perceived personal enemies. In a comment posted to his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, Trump hammered out a long, tormented rant that is typical of a malignant narcissist who is obsessed only with his own problems.

It’s predictable that Trump would begin his rancid tirade by wishing the cult followers who patronize his posts a “Happy Memorial Day,” when the day is not an occasion for happiness, but is a day of solemn remembrance for the losses suffered by the sacrifices of patriots. He then continues to extend his wretched wishes to “the Human Scum that is working so hard to destroy our Once Great Country.” Such inspirational holiday thoughts from someone who wants to represent the “Scum” …er… people of the nation.

However, the rest of Trump’s rant doesn’t mention a single person who is supposedly destroying the country, a country that he doesn’t regard as great. It is just an extended tantrum aimed solely at the judges presiding over some of his civil and criminal cases. Those judges, who serve the cause of law and order, are who he believes are the destroyers of America. He assaults them as…

  • The “Trump Hating Federal Judge in New York [Lewis Kaplan] that…awarded a woman [E. Jean Carroll]…91 MILLION DOLLARS.”
  • “Arthur Engoron, the N.Y. State Wacko Judge who fined me almost 500 Million Dollars.”
  • And “Now for [Judge Juan] Merchan!”

That’s Trump’s Memorial Day message. It is wholly devoted to his own personal legal tribulations. He doesn’t mention fallen American soldiers once. And while that is reprehensible, it isn’t surprising.

After all, it was Trump who insulted the late Sen. John McCain for having been captured and enduring a Vietnamese POW camp for seven years; who ripped off his phony veterans charity to enrich himself; and who dodged the draft by getting five fake deferments for alleged bone spurs, while whining that his vulnerability to sexually transmitted diseases was his own personal Vietnam.

For some context, the Daily Show helpfully put together some examples of how Trump really feels about the troops and this holiday…

As Usual, Trump’s Veteran’s Day Message is an Anti-America Rant that is All About Himself

Donald Trump (aka Cadet Bone Spurs) has a long history of disparaging America’s Armed Forces and the people who serve in them. It goes back to his own record as a five-time draft dodger during the Vietnam War. And it was revealed during his presidential campaign in 2015 with his insulting denial that John McCain, and every POW, were not war heroes, because Trump “likes people who weren’t captured.”

Donald Trump, Saving Cadet Bone Spurs

On this Veteran’s Day Trump posted a video (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) that reaffirms his callous disregard for the people who serve in the U.S. military. In a brief recorded statement the malignant narcissist couldn’t help but turn his message into an anti-America rant with allusions to his deranged belief that he is going to be restored to power (video below):

“On this Veteran’s Day I’d like to pay tribute to all of the incredible people – and you are indeed incredible people – who served so well and so strong and so powerfully in the United States Armed Forces. We love you, our nation respects you, the world respects you, and we will come back. Our country has gone through a lot. The last period of time has been very, very tough, watching what you had to watch. But our country will be back and will be back stronger than ever. Happy Veterans Day.”

So Trump couldn’t just praise veterans on this day set aside to celebrate their service and their sacrifice. He had to add his self-serving criticisms of the current state of the military and his not-so-thinly-veiled references to “coming back” like the wingnut messiah he believes himself to be. Trump can never let anything or anyone steal attention from his assholiness.

For the record, Trump has spent much of his time in political life bashing the military. Just last month he declared that “Everything is falling apart, our military is in shambles [and that] The USA “is very sadly going to hell!” And after a tragic accidental killing of Afghan civilians, Trump blamed “our incompetent Generals,” who were the same generals in charge during his term.

Trump also insinuated that soldiers suffering from PTSD were weak and “couldn’t handle” the hardships of war. And he famously ripped them off with a phony telethon staged as a flimsy excuse to chicken out of a presidential debate.

Perhaps worst of all was his attempt to get out of a visit to the Aisne-Marne cemetery in France where Americans soldiers were laid to rest. “Why should I go to that cemetery?” Trump whined. “It’s filled with losers.” He later added that the 1,800 plus marines who died at Belleau Wood were “suckers” for getting killed. “What’s in it for them?” he asked. “They don’t make any money.”

All of this displays the character – or lack thereof – of Donald Trump. And it establishes his disdain for veterans and service members. The video he posted was utterly disingenuous and exploitative. Like everything else he does, it was intended only to advance his own egomaniacal interests. That’s unfortunate for the veterans he is maligning. They deserve so much more on this Veteran’s Day.

Matt Gaetz Inadvertently (Though Correctly) Calls Donald Trump ‘Addled’

The House Armed Services Committee held a hearing with the top Pentagon brass on Wednesday. The purpose was ostensibly to get more information about the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan after twenty years of of conflict. However, as is often the case, some of the members of the committee were only there to malign President Biden, the American military, and its leaders.

Fox News, Matt Gaetz

For reasons that are inconceivable, Matt Gaetz (FL-QAnon) is a member of the committee, despite having no military experience or education whatsoever. And as a confirmed ultra-partisan bomb thrower, he spent his allotted time making baseless accusations and impotent insults and threats.

In the process of his pitifully uninformed ranting, Gaetz demonstrated just what a buffoon he is, and what an embarrassment to the Congress and the district he supposedly represents (when he isn’t off on pathetic political junkets with his BFF Marjorie Taylor Green). Gaetz, a trust fund baby who never served, scolded Gen. Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, saying that…

“You said yesterday that you weren’t gonna resign when senators asked you this question. And I believe you guys probably won’t resign. You seem to be very happy failing up over there. But if we didn’t have a president that was so addled, you all would be fired. Because that is what you deserve. You have let down people who wear the uniform in my district and all around the country and you’re far more interested in what your perception is and how people think about you in insider Washington books than you care about winning.”

A congressman who is currently under investigation for sex trafficking and soliciting of a minor probably shouldn’t be calling for the resignations of others. That’s particularly true when he has no foundation for making such an audacious demand.

However, in his harangue Gaetz appears to be oblivious to the attack he’s making on his messiah and mentor, Donald Trump. By asserting that Milley would have been fired “if we didn’t have a president that was so addled,” Gaetz is actually agreeing with all of those who have observed that Trump is dangerously crazy. That’s because it was Trump who promoted Milley to the chairmanship of the Joint Chiefs of Staff back in December of 2018. He was confirmed by the GOP led Senate on a bipartisan vote of 89 to 1 (Jeff Merkley, a Democrat, was the sole “no” vote). Milley then served in that role for the remaining two years of Trump’s presidency, and continues under Biden.

So if anyone deserves the “blame” for Milley’s service, it’s Trump. And according to Gaetz, Trump was too addled to fire him. What’s more, Gaetz’s assertion that Milley was more interested in his perception is pure projection on Gaetz’s part. He was a whore to Fox News for most of his brief tenure in congress. Although that seems to have come to an end since the breaking of his sex scandal. Apparently Gaetz is now even too toxic for Fox News.

Despite having been “cancelled” by Fox News, Gaetz is still sucking up to the network and its biggest stars. Recently Gaetz embraced Tucker Carlson and his racist “Great White Replacement” theory, saying that Carlson was “correct” and that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), who called for Fox to fire Carlson, were the racists. It makes you wonder who it is that is really addled, doesn’t it?

HUH? Tucker Carlson’s Crackpot Conspiracy that Vaccine Mandates Cancel Christianity

Fox News has spent the past year and a half promoting their recklessly pro-COVID, anti-vax agenda. It’s an editorial mission that steered their dimwitted viewers away from the simple, life-saving steps that would protect themselves and others. Consequently, the deadly coronavirus pandemic can now be accurately attributed to the “Fox News Variant” that is infecting and killing mostly Republicans and Trump cult followers at record levels.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

Fox News hosts and guests are staunchly devoted to spreading disinformation about COVID. However, no one is more guilty of the medical massacre in America today than Fox’s Chief Conspiracy Crackpot, Tucker Carlson. He has promoted the use of quack cures, espoused schizoid conspiracy theories that the vaccines don’t work, and even prodded his viewers to make false police reports of child abuse against parents whose children wear face masks.

On Monday evening Carlson took another step off the cliff of incoherence with a diatribe aimed at building more obstacles to the nation finally recovering from the COVID pandemic. In this episode, Carlson unleashed some bizarre accusations about the intentions of President Biden’s Defense Department mandating coronavirus vaccines for service members. Carlson ranted that…

“The point of mandatory vaccinations is to identify the sincere Christians in the ranks, the freethinkers, the men with high testosterone levels, and anyone else who does not love Joe Biden, and make them leave immediately. It’s a takeover of the U.S. military.

Seriously? Does Carlson actually believe that directing the military to get vaccinated against a virus that has already killed more than 675,000 Americans is a ‘takeover of the military’ by wimpy, Biden-loving, atheists? Does he also think it’s unmanly for soldiers to wear combat helmets? Are Air Force pilots cowards if they use parachutes? That gear, like vaccines, is intended to protect people from known hazards. But in Carlson’s world it is an attack on his holy Christianism and a show of weakness and/or impotence, which Carlson probably thinks is caused by the vaccines.

Carlson’s harangue is off-handedly referring to a faction of phony anti-vaxxers who are pretending to have a religious objection to getting vaccinated. But even far right evangelicals like Robert Jeffress aren’t buying it. Carlson also claimed that there was no need for a vaccine mandate because “Only 46 members of the entire U.S. military have died from the coronavirus over the last year and a half.” And, in Carlson’s view, they were expendable.

However, It should be noted that if Carlson had included the fatalities of military family members, civilian employees, and contractors, there were 473 deaths. Something that Carlson clearly fails to understand is that the wellbeing of the whole military community is critical to America’s defense readiness. While some soldiers are threatening to leave rather than get vaccinated, the prospect of many more becoming sick or dying would be much worse. But that’s only a part of the relevant context that Carlson left out.

First of all, Carlson failed to note that COVID deaths in the military have been increasing in the latest surge. The Military Times reported that “Eight total deaths in the past three weeks adds up to twice the previous monthly high” And the death rate is “25 times higher than it was last year.”

What’s more, according to Defense Department data, the reason for the relatively lower death rates is the high rate of vaccination in the ranks. 89% of soldiers in the Army have had at least one dose of the vaccine, The Marines are at 68%. the Navy is at 90%. And the Air Force is at 99%. That’s an average total of 89% of all service members vaccinated. If Carlson is pleased that there is a lower death rate in the military than the population at large, then if he were honest (yeah, right) he would have to admit that it’s because vaccines work.

So in the end, Carlson’s panic over apocryphal assaults on Christianity, free thinking, and machismo, are, as usual, figments of his perverse imagination. But it fits perfectly into his long-established pattern of fantastical fear mongering and aversion to the responsibility and compassion that decent humans display. And everyone at Fox News, particularly the Murdoch family that runs it, is complicit in the harm that is being done by Carlson and his confederates at Fox to the nation and the world.

Trump Attacks Biden and ‘Incompetent Generals’ In ‘Disgraceful’ Anti-American Rant

Among Donald Trump’s most dishonest political facades is his utterly disingenuous pandering to patriotism. He will flaccidly fling clichés like “America First” while acting out in ways that demonstrate his hostility to this nation and its people.

Donald Trump, Police

For instance, Trump recently took the side of the traitorous South in the Civil War, he shunned tributes to the victims and heroes on the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, and he continues to peddle his “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him.

On Friday Trump proved once again how low his opinion of America is in a tweet (posted in violation of his Twitter ban) criticizing the tragic accidental killing of Afghan civilians by an errant drone bomb. It was truly a horrific blunder that tears at the hearts of all decent people. But true to form, Trump couldn’t restrain himself from politicizing this tragedy:

“How disgraceful that so many people have been killed because of our incompetent Generals. The Biden Administration wanted to show that they were tough guys after they surrendered to the Taliban, which left many soldiers injured or dead and left Americans and the best Military equipment in the World behind. Our Country has never been so embarrassed or humiliated.”

It’s important to note that Trump only knows about this because the U.S. military, under President Biden’s leadership, took full responsibility for what happened. That’s something Trump has never done. But Trump’s reaction is repugnant on many levels.

First of all, the generals who Trump is insulting as “incompetent” were also on duty throughout his administration. So wouldn’t that make him equally as liable? Secondly, it was Trump who negotiated the “surrender agreement” (in the words of his own National Security advisor) with the Taliban. Thirdly, the equipment that was left behind was not abandoned. It was intended for use by Afghan troops who, unfortunately, failed to step up.

More to the point, if Trump thinks that the loss of ten civilian lives in this incident is “disgraceful,” what must he think about the fact that civilian deaths occurred with much greater frequency during his term? In fact, As reported at the time, the increase in civilian fatalities was due directly to Trump’s incompetent decisions:

“Civilian deaths skyrocketed in Afghanistan under President Donald Trump, whose administration relaxed the rules of engagement for airstrikes in 2017. […] Airstrikes killed 700 civilians in Afghanistan in 2019 alone, more than any other year since the early days of the war in 2002.”

Trump even tried to hide his murderous malfeasance by revoking a policy set by President Obama that required U.S. intelligence officials to publish the number of civilians killed in drone strikes. And as for Trump’s childish dig about the Biden administration wanting “to show that they were tough guys,” it was Trump who recklessly dropped “the Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) – nicknamed the ‘Mother of All Bombs’ – in April 2017 […] the first combat deployment of that weapon in any war zone.”

Trump’s animosity toward the military is well documented, going back to his five phony deferments from service during the Vietnam war. And then there was his disparagement of Sen. John McCain for having been been captured and spending six years as a prisoner of war. More recently, as president Trump demeaned America’s fallen soldiers, referring to them as “suckers” and “losers.” It’s a record of shamelessness for which one could truly say that “Our Country has never been so embarrassed or humiliated.”

The Civil War Was Rigged? Sore Loser Trump Aligns Himself with Robert E. Lee

Watching someone you care about devolve into ever deeper trenches of mental illness can be profoundly painful. So what is like when when watching it happen to Donald Trump, the most despised occupant of the White House in modern times?

Donald Trump, Fox News, QAnon

There is little doubt that Trump holds the undisputed title of America’s Biggest Loser. And after being decisively defeated by Joe Biden, Trump has continued to nurse the delusion that he “won by a landslide” because the election was “rigged.” Never mind that he’s had nine months to offer up evidence of that claim but he and all of his minions have utterly failed to do so.

Sore losers often find it comforting to commiserate with one another in an effort to ease the pain of having to acknowledge the glaring inadequacies that are obvious to everyone else who isn’t among the their glassy-eyed cult followers. And that’s what Trump is doing in a bizarre alt-tweet, posted by his spokes-shill, (whose proxy Trump tweeting is violating Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban).

In this official statement by the Former Guy, takes a “bold” stand in favor of the Confederate traitors who fought to secede from the United States so that they could continue to own human beings as property. Trump was triggered by news of the removal of a statue commemorating one of his personal heroes, Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

For the record, such removals are not suppressing history, as the apologists for the Southern traitors often argue. The history remains in books, museums, TV and films, and many other appropriate warehouses of knowledge. Statues are not history lessons. They are tributes. That’s why we don’t have statues of Hitler in public squares to preserve him in historical terms.

Trump’s statement, however, was an unambiguous celebration of one of America’s most committed perpetrators of treason. Trump began by describing how he “watched as a massive crane took down the magnificent and very famous statue of ‘Robert E. Lee On His Horse'” Clearly upset by what he considered to be an offensive act, Trump went on to laud Lee, saying that…

“Robert E. Lee is considered by many generals to be the greatest strategist of them all. President Lincoln wanted him to command the North, in which case the war would have been over in one day. Robert E. Lee instead chose the other side because of his great love of Virginia, and except for Gettysburg, would have won the war. He should be remembered as perhaps the greatest unifying force after the was was over.”

WTF? First of all, Lee’s reputation was the result of decades of propaganda. He didn’t lead the revolt “because of his great love of Virginia.” He led it because he was a slave owner who believed that slavery was condoned, and even advocated, by his Christian faith. Lee told a reporter at the time that “based on wisdom and Christian principles, you do a gross wrong and injustice to the whole negro race in setting them free.”

What’s more, Lee was among eight West Point trained colonels from Virginia in the U.S. Army when the South sought to wage war against the United States. The other seven remained loyal to the Union, while Lee alone chose treason. It had nothing to do with loving Virginia, as Trump said. And Lee was never a “unifying force” after the war. He wanted only to unify the white Northerners and Southerners. He still believed that Blacks were inferior and lobbied to prohibit them from voting.

However, perhaps the most ludicrous claim Trump said in that statement was that “except for Gettysburg” Lee and the South would have won the war. Really? That’s like saying “except for Waterloo Napoleon would have won.” Or “except for 81 million Americans voting for Biden, Trump would have won.” In short, Trump is saying that except for losing he would have won. Duh!

The cult worship of Lee by Trump and his Southern Confederate brethren is entirely misplaced. Historians have debunked the undo acclaim he has been showered with. An essay published in the Washington Post in 2017 set the record straight. In it Lee is described as a “bumbling strategist and the central character in ‘the most successful propaganda campaign in American history.'” Continuing it noted that “Lee’s ineptitude was most damaging at Gettysburg.”

What makes this all more nauseating is that Trump is virtually pining for the Southern victory that he believes Lee earned. His statement went on to say that…

“Our culture is being destroyed and our history and heritage, both good and bad, are being extinguished by the Radical Left, and we can’t let that happen! […] What an embarrassment we are suffering because we don’t have the genius of a Robert E. Lee!”

For Trump – the infamously famous stable genius and bone spur sufferer – to opine on the competence of generals is a joke. He has distinguished himself as a military moron. The generals he appointed while president mostly look upon him with scorn and ridicule, calling him an “idiot” and worse.

Trump’s Defense Secretary, General Mattis, said he made “a mockery of our Constitution” His Chief of Staff, General Kelly, said that he has “poisoned Americans’ minds”. His National Security Advisor, General McMaster, said he was “aiding and abetting Putin.” The only general on Trump’s side, confessed felon Mike Flynn, confirms the Putin charge. But now Trump wants us to consider his assessment of quality military leadership? No sir!
