It’s Definitely Miller

Over at Crook & Liars they noticed that Racist-in-Chief Trump goes to Jacksonville on the anniversary of Ax Handle Saturday to receive the official nomination for President from the Republican Party.

Ax Handle Saturday was another attack on black people, this time with ax handles for the crime of wanting to eat at segregated lunch counters in Woolworths and Morrisons. This year is the 60th anniversary of the assault.

They had to use ax handles because they didn’t have a “toy store” like the police do today.

Given Trump’s limited grasp of history it is impossible to believe that during a time of racial turmoil he would have been able to select two locations and dates that would be so disturbing to people of color. This smells of Stephen “I’m NOT related to Count Orlok” Miller.

Stephen “I’m not a neo-Nazi skinhead even though I dress like one and believe the same things” Miller?

I think that’s a safe bet to make.

His family has disowned him. He still looks like the lead in Nosferatu.

Yes… I think you’re correct. There is no way Dottard would have a clue about the relevance of those dates & places, or any Historical data for that matter. If it was pointed out to him by one of his staff, he would have just laughed and said “make it happen”.

We are the same age so I know exactly what he was taught in primary and secondary school in New York. He remembers none of it. He has no concept of what the job of the President is, much less knowing how to do it. There should be someone on staff who would track dates like Juneteenth and Ax Handle Saturday and who would handle the cards he needed to identify local leaders, but there is no one to do that on his team and he would ignore them even if the job was filled.

At least in your system you can’t get a total ignorant newcomer in the top job. I don’t know if it’s better but at least you are assured that they are screwing things up on purpose.

Ohhh… Really??!


If Scummo & Trump wore bags over their heads, nobody could tell the difference.

Scummo is bad but he can at least locate your major cities on a map and has worked somewhere more expansive than a family business. You can also look to the possibility of a party spill to remove him without waiting 4 years for an election. You still have foreign allies and friends. I do admit he is a bit of a prat who should not be trusted with any children, as he wouldn’t know how to deal with them and they would steal him blind. Also he does manage to tell the truth occasionally and can recognize most natural disasters as bad things. OTOH he doesn’t seem to be any more successful that Trump in actually fixing anything.
