Today’s Word of the Day is assail which means, “to attack, confront, or criticize.” Well. Talk about a timely word. I don’t often get political on this blog, at least not to any great depth, only because I don’t know where all my readers are from or what their ideological leanings are and offending people isn’t my aim. That being said, what’s going on with Comrade COVID right now and Twitter in particular is alarming. He just recently tweeted that he thinks cops in Minnesota should be able to shoot-to-kill looters. If I tweeted something like that (I wouldn’t, but let’s say in this alternate reality, I would), I’d be banned from the platform so fast, my head would spin. However, for some reason, it’s okay when HE does it. Then, when Twitter “fact checks” statements he made about mail-in voting, he throws a hissy fit and claims they shouldn’t be legally allowed to do that.
102,000 Americans are dead. The economy is in shambles. There are riots in the streets over police brutality. However, the supposed leader of the free world is taking time out of his day to bitch about social media? Jesus wept.
Today’s Musical Interlude Friday selection is what I’d love to hear Jack Dorsey say to Comrade COVID, but it’s unlikely to happen since Combover Caligula is good for Dorsey’s bottom line. Here is “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar. Enjoy!
