Buy your own Donald Trump death mask

Today, in a clear violation of campaign finance law, Brad Parscale, the director of Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign, tweeted from inside the White House that Trump-branded COVID-19 face masks were soon to be available for purchase. I had other things that I wanted to write about tonight, but it seemed worth noting that the mask Parscale is modeling in the post, given the material it seems to be constructed from, and its fit, would be almost completely ineffective in stopping the transmission of COVID-19. While I love the fact that they’re manufacturing campaign merchandise advertising Trump’s connection to the pandemic, which has already cost over 75,000 Americans their lives, I take very little pleasure in knowing that the poor, dumb fools who wear these ridiculous things will be putting themselves and others in danger. I’d love to go on, and spend the rest of my evening exploring the irony of Donald Trump, the man most responsible for putting us in the situation we now find ourselves in, selling ineffective masks to those who were lucky enough to survive the first wave of his pandemic, but we’re so far through the looking glass now that I wouldn’t know where to begin. I was originally thinking that I’s start with the fact that these masks are likely being made in the country that Trump blames for COVID-19, but then it occurred to me that I should probably begin with the administration’s absolute failure when it came to providing real masks for frontline health care workers. Ultimately, I decided that I should probably frame it all within the context of today’s other big Parscale-related news item, which is that he’s taken to calling the Trump 2020 campaign the “Death Star.” But, by the time, I’d decided that I was too depressed to go forward.

We are now so far beyond the concept of irony, we need a new word.

Just to sum up… The President’s people are equating his reelection campaign to the planet-killing weapon developed by the bad guys in Star Wars, and he’s funding said campaign by selling masks to his followers — masks they believe will protect them from a deadly disease that he allowed to spread through the United States unchecked — masks that, in reality, will not protect them at all. I know it’s been said a million times before, but, if anyone had suggested this as a possible reality, even five years ago, they would have been laughed out of civil society. This is in-fucking-sane, people.

    Aloha. Here is an article about how first world nations run by competent (mainly female) leaders have crushed the virus.
    Instead we will be hearing arguments about body counts and the “economic” cost. After all wage slaves have little value.

    Trump said he could shoot some one on 5th ave. And it would not bother his supporters. He was right about the moral caliber of his supporters.

    It’s been months. Maybe local hospitals now have sufficient PPE for their employees. If they don’t by now, it’s not likely they will spend funds to do so in the near future. Our leader has decided to let healthy people out of lockdown. Anyone in a risk group should definitely stay isolated for a few more months. I’m hoping to leave the bunker on the 4th of July. Not going to get any more vaccines.

    People are motivated by all sorts of things. I used to frequently put myself in dangerous situations. It was more subconscious initially, but as the years passed it became almost something more like habit. There’s a lot of unhealthy emotion underlying it. It might be something akin to what Adrenalin junkies do. I’m not sure. It culminated in a few increasingly dangerous interactions with very serious and organized criminals.

    People are often acting out in pathological ways. I’d say almost everyone does in some manner, to some degree. What is probably best is that we all work through our issues toward a healthier understanding of ourselves and others.

But if it couldn’t be avoided, they should take precautions to isolate from them. Same thing with nurses in the icu and other front line workers.

    What I don’t understand is why do we give Fauci a pass for telling us in daily briefings until mid- March that COVID wouldn’t be a problem in the US and that all we had to do is wash our hands. He’s the medical expert! Instead we blame Trump for listening to him?

    Fauci: No. Right now, at this moment, there’s no need to change anything that you’re doing on a day-by-day basis. Right now the risk is still low, but this could change. I’ve said that many times even on this program. You’ve got to watch out because although the risk is low now, you don’t need to change anything you’re doing. When you start to see community spread, this could change and force you to become much more attentive to doing things that would protect you from spread.

    Welker: Dr. Fauci, quickly, how does this all end?

    Fauci: You know, it ends if you — it depends on the nature of the outbreak. I mean, this could be a major outbreak. I hope not. Or it could be something that’s reasonably well controlled. At the end of the day, this will ultimately go down. Hopefully we could protect the American public from any serious degree of morbidity or mortality. That’s the reason why we’ve got to do the things that we have in our plan.

    Wobblie,

    One story I’ve considered sharing here for a long time because it involves the Ypsi area a bit.

    On and off I’ve thought about hiring a writer to put the whole story together for a book. But I’m still not sure to what degree I could get away with that without bringing on some unpleasant response from the guys involved.

    The situation revolved around an apartment break-in where the stolen items included an AR-15 and a flack vest. Though the break-in was portrayed as a random incident and covered up, it rapidly became clear that there was a lot more to it and that some serious folks were involved.

    This was back in 1994, so a few of the people who might not appreciate it being discussed publicly have passed on or are no longer all that relevant. Still, I’m sure I shouldn’t be too careless in shooting my mouth off about it.

    Sad,

    What do you consider wickedly smart about telling people it was fine to go to the gym on Feb. 29 and that there was no need to change anything they were doing on a day to day basis? The expert advice was to wait until the animals escape before you close the barn door? Think of the lives that could have been saved if our “expert” was more proactive.

    Aloha, assault weapons and cover-ups cool iRobert.
    Your right EOS after all Trump was being honest when he said he was not responsible for anything. As Ive maintained numerous times, Trump is the weakest most incompetent President, maybe ever. Pence has also proven that almost all the other pencils in the drawer are sharper. So I am sorry your sticking with stupid.

    Want to talk about incompetent Presidents? On Thursday we found out that Obama not only knew that Flynn was illegally wiretapped but also that he was innocent. Obama did nothing while Flynn depleted his savings, sold his home, and lost his job. Only when they threatened to target his son also, did he “confess” to lying under oath. Obama, Biden, Comey, and Sally Yates were all part of the conspiracy to destroy an innocent man’s life. Why? Speculation is that they thought him to be too competent to ignore their criminal activity and Obama disliked him for his anti-Muslim terrorist stance.

    Wow. You all have a super selective idea of what constitutes victim hood.

    Poor Gen Flynn, poor Kavanaugh, poor Rich Catholic school boys, poor unborn, poor Trump, etc etc.

    Everybody else, just pull yourselves up by your bootstraps and deal with the hand your given.

    It’s the rich and powerful and uniformly White who are the victims. Except for The embryos. They don’t care about the race of embryos, but once they’re born, the non-white ones had better just accept their bad schools, lack of access to decent medical care, environmental contamination and generational poverty because that’s their fault or at least not anyone else’s. Maybe that’s the fault of liberals.

    You all are corrupt and immoral.

    Apparently Jean thinks Flynn is should not be off the hook.

    Can Jean explain why Flynn should have been spied on? Be specific. We now have their reasons. Can you please share those reasons with us?

    Can Jean explain why Flynn should be prosecuted? Be specific. You mentioned he lied. Can you identify the exact lie? Not what your buddies at MSNBC claimed he lied about. It should be easy to report back to us because you already have an opinion that Flynn should not be off the hook. Only an insane person with a bigot brain would come to a judgment about a persons guilt or innocence without knowing basic details. Prove you do not have a bigot- brain, Jean.

    “… I recognize that the actions I acknowledged in court today were wrong, and, through my faith in God, I am working to set things right. My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the Special Counsel’s Office reflects a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country. I accept full responsibility for my actions.”

    FF— I have no Firm opinion on Michael Flynn because I don’t have enough information. None of us do.

    I do believe that William Barr has protected the president in ways that no other AG has ever done and in ways that seem very counter to that riled independence. At no point has he done so without others suggesting that he was playing hard and loose with the facts or misrepresenting their work.

    So all of that creates considerable skepticism about this dismissal.

    You all keep lying and pretending he’s been exonerated again.

    And for the record, I’m ok with anyone being investigated in relationship to Russian interference in our Democracy. That’s the kind of thing that we have always given wide berth on Investigating.

    I can say that I am not outraged. Not in the slightest. There’s a lot to be outraged about lately. You guys always pick the strangest things.

    Outbreaks are going to create total chaos, perhaps by design at this point.

    Aloha HW, no you spread useless bullshit and worthless Trump propaganda. I am the one who has consistently posted objective reporting on the subject.
    You support the locking up of truth tellers like Assange, coercing him to tell lies.
    Your Leader is responsible for another 1700+ deaths Saturday. Your Leader may still kill a couple million—-he is doing a great job of wrecking the economy—are you going to volunteer to work in the slaughterhouses and packing plants?
    No I predict you will want to spend your time talking Russiagate, China, and the Space Force. Anything to distract from the carnage your Leader has inflicted on us.
