Had he even a scrap of dignity or self-respect left, Donald Trump would have slunk away from the limelight after his crushing electoral defeat at the hand of now-President Joe Biden. Instead, the man continues to beclown himself on a near-daily basis by issuing petty, rambling statements in the hopes of shaping the country’s political landscape. Since he no longer has access to his Facebook or Twitter thanks to his role in the deadly January 6th insurrection, he’s forced to release his pathetic little screeds through intermediaries.
Today, the former president’s spokesperson Liz Harrington shared his latest statement via Twitter. In it, the disgraced former commander-in-chief decried the “tragic mess in Afghanistan, a completely open and broken Border, Crime at record levels, oil prices through the roof, inflation rising” and the United States supposedly being “take advantage of by the entire world.”
As usual, Trump’s attacks are incredibly bad faith. While there are valid criticisms of the manner in which the Biden administration handled the withdraw from Afghanistan, Trump was the one who put it into motion in the first place. In fact, Trump previously called on Biden to withdraw American troops from the country even sooner — a move that would have only exacerbated the violence on the ground.
Trump’s claim that the border is “open and broken” is patently untrue, and the crime/oil/inflation issues can all be directly tied to the COVID-19 pandemic. If Trump had done a better job of managing the virus instead of downplaying it and spreading misinformation, the entire world would be in a much better position right now.
“DO YOU MISS YET?” Trump ended his statement. To which we can only emphatically respond: NO.
The only people who miss the chaotic, incompetent Trump administration are the delusional acolytes of the MAGA cult who still somehow believe that the worst president in American history was a brilliant leader. The families Trump separated and minorities he attacked certainly don’t miss him, our allies overseas who he undermined at every turn don’t miss him, and the men and women who lost loved ones thanks to his botched COVID response don’t miss him. Good riddance.
