Tuesday’s Theme Music

Trump’s comments about people dying were infuriating to hear. He couldn’t do anything about it. So powerless, isn’t he?

Yeah, infuriating. Watching him, thinking about that, and remembering children in cages, and the way he seems to think — certainly the way he acts in general — an old Foreigner song, “Cold As Ice” (1977), came into my mental music stream.

Not like the COVID-19 deaths (or the children in cages) is the first time he’s demonstrated a lack of empathy. Remember his call to the family of the U.S. soldier killed? “He knew what he was getting into.” Jesus wept. There’s also the lack of caring demonstrated in dealing with Puerto Rico and their issues. Unless it’s about him (and his numbers) or, lordy, the economy, he just doesn’t give a shit, demonstrating nothing but contempt, anger, and hatred as far as emotions go.

Yep, cold as ice. He’s willing to sacrifice anything to make himself look good.

    1. Well, from my reading, some are deliberately and willfully ignorant of the truth, heeding only to Fox News and right wing circles and pundits that support him. Others are just fucking stupid, another group is racist, and more are part of a cult of personality that can only be explained with deep psychoanalyses. A small faction who honestly (and stunningly, to me) believe that he’s really doing a good job. Finally, some are of the mind that the nation must be razed so they can build it over in their image. All of them disturb me.
