Donald J. Trump turned 75 today, proving that age alone is not enough to impart wisdom. This ogre of a man has stalked this planet for three-quarters of a century and in that time has accomplished little more than inflicting indiscriminate cruelty on the less privileged. The world would indisputably be a better place today if Trump had never been born.
The usual MAGA cretins came crawling out of the digital woodwork to heap well wishes on their geriatric god-king. Newsmax—a reliably unreliable news outlet that has somehow managed to stake out a position even further to the right than Fox News—ran nauseatingly fawning coverage of the big guy’s big day.
At one point today, Newsmax actually sent one of their reporters to wander the streets of Huntington Beach, California to ask people to wish Trump a happy birthday. Some were more than willing to do so, demonstrating that the MAGA delusion that Trump was anything more than a complete disaster for the United States and the world is still alive for some segments of the population.
The segment went off the rails for the reactionaries who run Newsmax when the reporter made the mistake of asking an older woman for her birthday thoughts on Trump.
“I’m not going to wish you a happy birthday because I think you’re a jerk and I think you should be in jail for all the laws that you broke,” said the woman.
“What laws specifically?” asked the reporter, clearly displeased with her remarks.
“Of course you would ask me that,” said the woman, recognizing his partisan agenda.
“For the details?” he asked.
“For the details and I’m sorry I don’t have any details. Sorry,” said the woman, who understandably couldn’t be pressed to recount the specific violations of the U.S. legal code.
“Makes sense,” the reporter said dismissively.
