He’s Either a Moron, Insane, or Both

Can you guess who I’m talking about? This morning our Moron-in-Chief sent out this tweet.7b70e703-7ef2-427e-b68b-9fdf2dada123.jpegOkay, first, a 409K is not a thing. What Trump presumably meant was a 401(k) plan, which is an employer-sponsored retirement account to which employees contribute a certain amount that employers match either fully or partially. Second, the plural of 401(k) is not “401K’s,” it’s “401(k)s.”

Third, only 44% of private sector workers participate in a defined contribution — 401(k) — plan. So a booming stock market has little to no impact on 56% of Americans. And if you’re very wealthy, yes, you’ve made a lot of money in the stock market this year, but the average balance across all age groups in 401(k) accounts was only around $103,700 as of last March.

Trump followed up his 409k tweet with another one linking the lowest cancer-death rate in history to his presidency.C113359D-27BE-4427-B565-019AEC2D6B1BThe American Cancer Society says that’s not true. Trump’s tweet appeared to be referring to the findings of an American Cancer Society report released on Wednesday, which said the rate of people dying from cancer in the United States declined in 2017 for the 26th year in a row. Trump took office in January 2017. The fact is, the cancer death rate has fallen continuously from 1991 through 2017.

Yet the Trump administration has proposed drastic cuts to science and medical research programs. Under the administration’s latest budget proposal, the National Cancer Institute would have been among the divisions to see the biggest slash in funding.

Trump is quick to take credit for good things that he had little or nothing to do with, while he shifts the blame to others, (e.g., Obama) for anything he thinks is bad.

We need to vote this man out of office later this year, because it looks like the Republican senators are going to stand by their man and let him off the hook, meaning he won’t be removed from office due to impeachment.

    I was going to use the 409K’s for my One-Liner Wednesday next week, but now I will have to come up with something else. What a total idiot, he probably saw Melania spraying something with Formula 409.

    I’d say that Tangerine Palpatine was indulging in some 420K, except that he must be doing crack to come up with the batshit crazy crap that he spews out on Twitter. Weed isn’t nearly strong enough to cause that much of an intellectual meltdown.

    I wonder how much he’s invested in his 409K? Do you ever question our future?

        Yes, I often question our collective future. It doesn’t look good and there is so little we can do other than get a grip.

    While we’re talking about his unforced errors, nobody in the White House bothered to check before he claimed, in his address to the nation, that the anti-nuclear pact with Iran was enacted in 2013, when it was actually 2015.

    Of course, that statement wasn’t nearly as egregious as a) his pulling us out of a treaty that by all responsible sources was working—thereby beginning the world-destabilizing horrors that have started; and b) his once again displaying his insatiable Obama-envy with the blatant lie that the recent attack by Iran was paid for by money Obama gave them. The truth was we released Iranian funds we’d been holding as part of the successful negotiations.

    He too will be forgotten in due time because he’s only human.

    There are times when I say he is like evil incarnate. I said it yesterday. Someone said he’s not smart enough to be a devil. I don’t know; there could be different levels. Yet, I didn’t say he was a devil.

    I was never a Clinton fan. I’ve been both too conservative and too progressive to be impressed by Hillary. (And I’m not even going to get into Bill.) She is too much of a neo-con/neo-liberal for me (not that it’s very relevant any more for her). But this is an article worth reading:

    Analysis: How ‘Lock Her Up!’ just blew up

    Updated 10:52 AM EST January 10, 2020

    “Lock her up!” the crowd at President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Toledo, Ohio, on Thursday night chanted. “You should lock her up, I’ll tell you,” Trump agreed.
