Donald Trump, the pro-police brutality president, held a roundtable with religious figures, business owners, and law enforcement officials in Dallas today to discuss, among other things, “justice disparities.”
Trump’s handling of the George Floyd protests has been abysmal, as he has pushed to have peaceful demonstrators tear-gassed and assaulted in the streets. Whereas any decent president would listen to the reasonable requests of protestors and give serious thought to how our country can reform its policing methods be more just and less violent, Trump is dedicated to preserving a status quo that disproportionately hurts people of color.
The reality is that Trump has never once in his life demonstrated any genuine concerns about injustices beyond his seemingly pathological drive to perpetuate them. Today’s event was little more than a glorified campaign rally.
During the roundtable, he failed to say anything meaningful about the racial problems facing America, but he did manage to blather on about buildings in a near-incoherent fashion, demonstrating for the umpteenth time that not only does he not have the moral spine needed to run a country but also lacks the basic mental acuity.
“Sometimes you’ll see a building, it costs less money than another building that costs more because the one that built the one that costs more, this one looks better,” Trump said, sounding for all the world like a confused child.
“The one that’s cheaper it looks better. They say how much more did you spend for that building? Actually, we spent less. You can do that. It’s called: You have to know what you’re doing,” he added, prompting the obsequious audience to laugh as if he said something clever rather than completely jumbled.
The bizarre tangent was in keeping with this president’s absurd rhetorical style and also drives home the truth that he cares very little about running this country or addressing its dire problems. At the end of the day, he’d much rather ramble on about himself or his personal interests.
