He’s Marvelous, He’s Our President and the World Mocks, Groans and Shivers in Fear

by Glenn R. Geist

Amongst many other common pretenses of the Republican brain is that of thinking it’s an economist. It’s not that I’m singling out that nebulous congregation of “conservatives” for ridicule.

The commonly described alternate group of brains is well known for assuming knowledge of genetics, biochemistry and other disciplines in a superstitious fashion, but so much of the support for the Republican’s  usually failing policies are founded upon unquestioned and unassailable faith in cultic economic ideas. Trumpism is truly no less than a cult.

“But he’s done marvelous things…”

…says the gnome-like little man sitting on a weight machine at my gym. He’s talking to a large woman sitting on another machine (and using a great deal more weight) but who seems to be giving less metaphorical weight to arguments for Donald Trump and his alleged achievements. Five of the six TV screens are tuned to Fox News. Nearly everyone here today is at least 70.   “The economy is booming” he adds.

I had to make this observation:

“And it has been for eight years” I had to add although I never before have engaged in political discussions in such an inappropriate place. “and pretty much worldwide at that.”

He ignores me and well he should since I’m indisputably correct. Of course to the Fox flock, the Obama years were an economic disaster although to real economists they were not.

A graph of any market index easily shows that to be true as well as does a graph of job growth. Yes, income inequality may recently have lessened a tiny amount but that’s typical of any late-stage recovery. Any influence on markets or the economy is the only speculation about future corporate profits resulting from that same old, same old Republican promise.

And of course, there’s the fact that none of his changes have yet taken effect. 

But marvelous things indeed, a government headed toward one-party control of all branches of government; a government packing all institutions with crooks and incompetents and some dedicated to crippling or eliminating science and education or separation of Church and Government power. A government succeeding in eliminating all checks and balances. It’s a government determined to spend like there’s no tomorrow and all at the public’s expense.

We’ve got a marvelous leader who’s been a life-long money launderer for criminals, who has sold the foreign policy in exchange for stolen goods, who has staffed himself with agents for adversarial governments, bungled into massive security breaches and has spent his first year trying to illegally block criminal investigations of his nefarious deeds.

Marvelous things: ethnic cleansing of a heartless kind, the creation of massively distracting conspiracies and investigations that have come to nothing but to convince the gnomes and damaged wits of America that he’s wonderful, he’s marvelous, he’s our president – while the world mocks and groans and shivers in fear.

    I won’t be watching tonight, unless I can be guaranteed he’s going to stroke out mid sentence, he will take credit for the economy that still has none of his policies in place and is still Obama’s like you stated. He’s done it before he’ll do it tonight and the whole world will be mocking him in real time on twitter. I’m there for that part maybe.

      I absolutely will NOT be watching Brother Pig this evening. I expect Scott & Bailey will be a huge improvement. As a matter of fact, SpongeBob would be a huge improvement.

    I don’t think I need to read anything else about Trump’s Regime Glenn, you’ve captured my feelings entirely.

    Well, I’m a year older than he is and probably no one is in better health that Don Trumpski but I expect to outlive him and I can’t wait to piss on his grave if I have to show up in a wheelchair.

    I can’t escape the fucking SOU no matter where I turn. I gave up TV and finished reading a book about NIXON. Some irony there, but I think Nixon had more honor in his little finger than “Brother Pig” has in his whole body.

      That’s not a bad idea. The dickless pig seems to be channeling Tricky Dick, but it’s even scarier since there are no longer any checks and balances, there’s limitless dark money and there’s Fox News. Nixon might have become President for life if he had Trump’s advantages.

    I suppose this is what happens when a child in a mans body gets elected?

    I had no need to watch the SOU seeing as how I’m a good republican and will believe whatever shit my friends at Fox News tell me about it. I just want to be the first to thank President Trump for making speeches great again.
