    President Trump has once again defeated China. Welcome home, @realDonaldTrump.

    From Senator, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee.

    I can't believe how these people say the dumbest shit to appease this fool. It truly is Dr. Leader shit. Just scary AF that we bow to an authoritarian figure like this.

    You know. People with Dementia tend to struggle in new/unfamiliar environments. Could be the real reason he's being described as a caged animal trying to escape the hospital.

    Also, was thinking about the Multiverse theory lately since it seems like DCU and MCU might both be leaning into the Multiverse in future installments.

    Here's a funny alternate reality to consider:

    There is a reality where Donald Trump dropped off the 2020 GOP ticket and ran 2020 as a Democrat and is criticizing all the bad stuff the Republicans did in the last 4 years.

    We need some serious limitations on presidential power. I don't just mean empowering the justice department to investigate potential crimes by the president, or having laws which improve oversight by congress. I mean people need to be able to say no to the president when they know better, and the health an safety of the president and others is at stake. The president is NOT a fucking king. I pray that sentiment is still strong in the US populace and drives greatly diminishing the president's sense of authority in the next administration.

    We have them. The courts have repeatedly reigned in Trump's power, though with the Legislature giving more and more authority to the Executive because they're worried about re-elections it's more challenging.

    The core problem now is that we have a Legislature, specifically a Senate, that has no interest in holding the Executive branch accountable when it's "their party" in there, and are largely deferent to any Executive overreach.

    There are circumstances where they can. The problem is if you hamstring an executive office this much it loses its power as well. The problem is that these kinds of positions are designed with bad actors like Trump in mind. They're designed for people who genuinely want to do the job and play by the rules, even if they have a different ideological viewpoint. It's just that Republicans have a history of not wanting to do the job and not wanting to play by the rules.

    No, the Trump base wants an emperor with a family dynasty.

    Guess Trump has his propaganda video he tweeted an hour ago of his triumphant return.

    "Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life."

    Famous last words. Though I guess if you take unnecessary risks and end up dying from it, you technically aren't letting it dominate your life since you just forfeited it.

    Covid just took the most powerful and protected person in the entire world to the hospital, but don't be afraid!

    If he said "don't panic," I mean fine, but "don't be afraid?" fuck you trump fuck you!

    Chris Cuomo's monolog is well worth watching when it gets uploaded.

    In case y'all are wondering how Trump's day went on social media, currently trending topics are: #gasping, #mussolini, #claudia conway, and #herman cain.
    "Multiculturalism has failed!" angrily types a person of European descent living in the Americas in a Germanic language using Roman characters on a device coded with Arabic numerals before leaving in a huff to go watch cartoons made in Japan.

    It's real shitty but like...maybe Trump supporters need to see him on a ventilator before they'll start understanding that this isn't a fuckin joke.

    Didn’t Herman Cain tweet his support over the weekend? Yeah, just today he tweeted his well wishes and speedy recovery to Trump.

    Twitter seems down for me... stupid Comcast or my network...

    Do you think Trump genuinely believes that the world class, and free, healthcare he got/is getting is what everyone in the country gets? He's spouting incredibly dangerous rhetoric for someone so clearly struggling still.

    Worse are the GOP senators and the fanaticism.

    Exactly. He's so far removed from what reality is for the vast majority of Americans. Hell, he's removed from reality in general on a good day.

    Not sure if heavy breathing is from lung disease or the constitution of an obese man who lives on Big Macs.
