Donald Trump provided reality television contrivances and social media-seated high chair tyrant cringe-factor, in combination with a proclivity for narcissism-enabling sub-literate demagoguery deployed to provoked the limbic systems of strip mall brownshirts — perpetual spectacle that distracted from the fact of just how far the US has careened to the political right, and under the control of the executive and legislative branches of government by oscillating successions of both High Dollar owned political parties.
Visual-wise, a very low bar has been set for Biden-Harris: simply don’t appear in public acting like unhinged tools — thereby the status quo of the neoliberal order and US agendas seeking to maintain US global hegemony can be maintained. The Democratic primaries served to shunt progressives from power. The economic elite and profiteers of militarism have placed their money on Biden being able to reinstate a corporate-modelled, inverted totalitarianism of the bland.
Biden’s blank face and life-devoid eyes seem to manifest the soul-defying agenda. Trump’s crass, jerkopathic style gave the game away — but it was his craving for adulation from an asylum-worthy mob (who embodied the very essence of a nation founded in genocide and other forms of violence against its minority populace) that unnerved the political elite to the degree they finally form the consensus to banish Trump’s junk-food bloated, dissembling hind from the political sphere.
Goodbye, to the ambulatory tub of toxic goo Trump…make way for the cusp-of-senility, blank-faced, swaying tower of bromides, Biden.
Bidenism: The principle that one should vote for a lying, thieving, health-compromised, immoral, greedy, egotistical, insensitive, racist, war criminal, elitist, flip-flopping, hypocritical, secretive, manipulative, vindictive, thin-skinned, pedophile sexual predator, psychopathic fraud with dementia because the other lying, thieving, health-compromised, immoral, greedy, egotistical, insensitive, racist, war criminal, elitist, flip-flopping, hypocritical, secretive, manipulative, vindictive, thin-skinned, pedophile sexual predator, psychopathic fraud with dementia is presumably worse.

Put in a nickel, out comes a gaffe. Put in a dime, out comes a lie. Put in a quarter, out comes… you know, you know, the thing.
“If you’re willing to sacrifice all principles, all sanity, and all morality to get rid of Trump, what exactly is the point of getting rid of Trump?” ~ Caitlin Johnstone
Criticizing Trump at this point is like shooting fish in a barrel. Criticizing Biden and the orthodox liberal class based on past actions is the same. Thanks for the insights but they are obvious. What’s the solution? The house has a leaky roof, so what, burn it down? That’s what I keep hearing from holier than thou enlightened progressives. Your flowery language is intoxicating and fun to read. But you offer no solutions. (Robert Deblasis)
A solution for you would be to cease annoying people with logical fallacies and of the most platitudinous kind when confronted cogent critiques. What the solution? I’m your daddy nor your guru. If I notice the seat of your pants are ripped and your ass is hanging out and inform of it, its not my job to sew them you.
20 January 2017. Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the USA, becoming the oldest President to hold the office at the time of his inauguration.
He was the first to have no previous record of government or military experience. He promised to put “America first”.
20 January 2009. Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th President of the USA, becoming the first African-American to hold the office.
Obama’s electoral message of hope, embodied by his campaign slogan “Yes We Can” had clearly struck a chord with voters.
