If you read the news, you might have heard about a little bit of controversy over the pond involving NFL players refusing to stand for their National Anthem, and the dipshit President telling a gathering of his loony, equally dipshit supporters that team owners should fire the “sons of bitches” for supposedly disrespecting the flag and the country.
Now, because he’s too dumb to understand things, he doesn’t get that these players aren’t disrespecting the flag, they’re protesting at the social injustices that are going on in what is still an essentially racist country where a white policeman can shoot an unarmed black man for no apparent reason and not be subjected to any sort of punishment. If the so-called leader of the Free World knew his constitution, he’d know the First Amendment – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
I have a number of issues with the small-handed, orange-faced, long-tied fuckwit, but in this case, it’s that he should not be encouraging divisions in society. Like any leader, he’s supposed to lead by example. Instead he’s spouting evil, ignorant bullshit about things he knows nothing about. He’s creating a toxic mess of a problem similar to the one fostered by UKIP in the run-up to the EU Referendum, only on a grander scale (because
everything’s bigger in the US of A) pitting sections of society against each other.
The resulting backlash of this brouhaha has seen equally dim Americans boo players for kneeling (the same Americans who ignore the aforementioned First Amendment whilst whining and crying every time someone mentions tightening up gun laws), and burn players’ shirts in scenes reminiscent of when the same people (or maybe their parents generation) burned Beatles records after an American magazine published John Lennon’s observations on religion and the band’s popularity completely out of context. Dumb fuckers.
So, to sum up, Donald Trump’s a dipshit, the people who voted for him are also dipshits, America is becoming the laughing stock of the world, and I probably won’t be allowed to enter the US for a while – not that I would want to while Trump is in the White House.
