Recently poor neglected and abused man-child “The Donald” had a virtual town hall at the Lincoln Memorial. Once again he felt the need to invoke the name of our 16th president Abraham Lincoln.
Tearfully he cried, “They always said, ‘Lincoln, nobody treated worse than Lincoln.‘ I believe I am treated worse.”
We are currently in a corona virus pandemic that has killed over 70,000 Americans in less than four months and Trump, Commander-in-Chief of United States Armed Forces, 45th President Of The United States, and father-in-law of Jar-jar Kushner is whining because the press doesn’t kiss his ass everyday like Pence, Barr, and Pompeo.
I am not going to put up a compare and contrast list of characteristics between Abraham Lincoln and Donald Trump because there is no comparison, only contrast. For the right wingers that may read this I will keep it simple. Lincoln good. Trump bad.
Every chance Trump gets he denigrates our assassinated 16th President starting with using a Lincoln Bible while taking the oath of office, an oath he has publicly abused from day one!
Lincoln was a great president and a great man. He died for his country. He survived numerous assassination attempts while keeping this country together during a Great Civil War. He was gunned down five days after the end of the war on April 14, 1865.
Donald is a bone spur draft dodger with a yellow stripe down his back for cowardice. He has the United States Secret Service protecting him from the boogey man. Lincoln had no such protection. People in the 1800s had grit and stamina and didn’t eat at Kentucky Fired Chicken, Taco Bell or McDonalds and dodged musket fire by ducking not hiding behind sacrificial lambs.
Lincoln died when a coward snuck up behind him and shot him in the back of the head and ran away while shitting his pants.
Lets talk about that coward. He was an actor like Donald was on “The Apprentice”. He was a southern sympathizer much like Donald and he hated the President from Illinois, much like Trump hates Obama. Lincoln’s coward assassin was a racist. Trump may not be a racist … he has black friends just like his secretary of state Mark Meadows has black friends (please note the cynical sarcasm strategically placed here). Trump is a racist.
Trump basically follows the assassin’s political philosophy. Not only that, he is the assassin’s namesake.
Trump was named after Lincoln’s assassin. That is what I think anyway. I could be wrong but Trump never is. He told us so many times.
Another thing about Lincoln that is interesting. When he was 28 years old he predicted a person like Trump coming into power. He gave a speech January 27, 1838. His “Address Before The Young Men’s Lyceum Of Springfield, Illinois” clearly describes narcissistic, self-professed stable genius Trump.
Here is a quote from that speech:
” Towering genius distains a beaten path. It seeks regions hitherto unexplored.–It sees no distinction in adding story to story, upon the monuments of fame, erected to the memory of others. It denies that it is glory enough to serve under any chief. It scorns to tread in the footsteps of any predecessor, however illustrious. It thirsts and burns for distinction; and, if possible, it will have it, whether at the expense of emancipating slaves, or enslaving freemen. Is it unreasonable then to expect, that some man possessed of the loftiest genius, coupled with ambition sufficient to push it to its utmost stretch, will at some time, spring up among us? And when such a one does, it will require the people to be united with each other, attached to the government and laws, and generally intelligent, to successfully frustrate his designs.“
This was a long speech but it goes into detail about our current lawless squatter in the White House and his mob cult followers. I urge you to read his speech.
Every time Trump invokes the Lincoln name it is an abomination. Trump is anathema to all Lincoln stood for and died for.
Trump gets the typical ribbing every President gets. He ain’t treated bad, but if he were it ain’t bad enough in my book. The minute he came down that escalator spewing hate and division he started an ugly war of words with associated bad behavior. Game on asshole!
