The Rude Pundit: Trump Believes That People Who Die of Coronavirus Are Losers

Trump Believes That People Who Die of Coronavirus Are Losers

snip//

Trump has made a big show about how he refuses to wear a mask because he's been tested and doesn't have coronavirus. At the event Tuesday, in Oval Office gatherings, neither Trump nor the people there, including Drs. Birx and Fauci, wear masks. You know that he sees wearing a mask as a sign of weakness. You know that he's demanded that no one be allowed to wear masks. No one is gonna make him look like a disease-fearing pussy. He is the uber-mensch. All others cower beneath his exceedingly healthy orange glow.

Essentially, that's his attitude towards the dead. If you get sick, you are weak and you are preventing the economy from "roaring back." If you die, you're a loser because it makes him look bad. Here's what he managed to say yesterday: "We mourn ó and I have to say this so strongly ó we mourn every life tragically lost to the invisible enemy, and weíre heartened that the worst of the pain and suffering is going to be behind us." The worst is not "behind us." We're in the worst right now, with cases rising in some states, falling in others, and staying steady in the others. The sick and the dead are inconvenient because they prevent him from gallivanting around the country and prancing like a coked-out baboon in front of his adoring, cretinous crowds. He talked about how tragic it would be to have social distancing at his rallies of the damned: "I canít imagine a rally where you have every fourth seat full. Every ó every six seats are empty for every one that you have full. That wouldnít look too good." Your fever and cough are keeping the president from having good-looking campaign events, you selfish fucks.

But I keep coming back to that fuckin' question. Trump admitted that he has not reached out to a single family of someone who died. He didn't take any time to ring up some widow in Alabama or Texas or Kansas, the states that he won. That's just fucked up. He can't because to do so would be to concede that the deaths mean something beyond lower approval ratings. He can't because he's incapable of exuding the kind of empathy that's necessary to come across as anything other than the popularity-driven, praise-thirsty, narcissistic monster that he is.

Instead, he pretends that 60,000 deaths are bad, but, hey, a million deaths is worse and China must be lying; he's petulantly defensive, pissed off that all these weak losers are dying and that he's supposed to pretend to care. Fuck that. Not when it's more fun to shitpost about Brian Williams or CNN.

He says the disease is going to disappear "like a miracle," except it's not. It's going to slowly peter out, the bodies stacking up, becoming to him like a wall preventing his reelection. Your death means nothing more and nothing less.

2. Why doesn't his staff get him one name? Make one phone call?

Obama had a purple folder of letters emails and cards received so he could not get too deep in the weeds. Of course Obama read things.

I have an answer to my own question- he canít. Rudeness nailed it - any thing negative implies weakness and failure.

I posted this yesterday

He was wrong. Everything back to normal will mean he's no longer wrong.
At least as far as heís concerned.

Itís hard to keep in mind how tragically wrong he was. He left himself absolutely no wiggle room. There were no conditions, no caveats. As wrong as heís been about so many things the frantic bubble he lives in has convinced him that he simply canít be wrong. Everything we have seen and will see circles around getting back to where he is right again. Oh and heíll punch down when he thinks he has his win.

3. Remember what a disaster it was when he called the widow of a soldier killed in

Africa early on in his administration? How about the disastrous photo up with the orphaned infant after the El Paso massacre?

His aides know he can't do empathy or condolences, so they keep him from stepping in it by not pushing him to do such things anymore.
