If you yearn to criticize the Commander-in-Chief and keep it stylish, I have a rock-solid recommendation: Repeatedly reference “democracy.”
It may not make especial sense, but neither did parachute pants — fit yourself into the fad of the moment.
For the last four years, the “D” word has rung like a bell — relentlessly as the President’s opposition has sounded the alarm all over.
From MSNBC to ABC to big and little sites across the web, we’ve been told Donald Trump is right on the verge of destroying for all mankind and for all future forward the ability of people to elect their leaders.
Yet — so far as I can tell — explanations have remained elusive. It seems folks have been so worried he might do it, they’ve not taken time to exert the energy toward laying out how.
And the accusation of evil intent is ongoing.
On Thursday’s episode of The View, in fact, Joy Behar said she’s concerned: If the Leader of the Free World sees a second term, democracy will go the way of the dodo bird.
Joy warned similar-minded viewers: Don’t “get complacent” just because Biden looks to have it nailed.
As noted by The Daily Caller, the segment started with Whoopi Goldberg noting town halls for each candidate would be airing in the evening — Joe appearing on ABC (home to The View) and NBC hosting Donald.
Behar mused people might prefer the trashing of a train over something more sightly.
“It’s so insane out there. You know, the ratings will probably go to the ‘stable genius’ because people prefer to watch a train wreck rather than watch, you know, let’s say, a course in civics. But that doesn’t mean the ratings will translate to votes.”
Joy also suggested the competing network was Team Trump — in fact, the Peacock’s likely keeping incrimination in the wings:
“I think that NBC is all-in for Trump, as they were with The Apprentice. And the fact that (creator/producer) Mark Burnett has still not released many of the tapes from [the show] where he probably said some horrific things.”
Additionally, she offered this:
“[I] think that NBC, if they really want to do the show, should put in a laugh track. Because that is what watching Trump has become — it’s become a comedy show. And, unfortunately, people are dying.”
Then came the warning over overconfidence. And a nod to the President’s private military:
“It looks like Biden’s going to pull it off, but people should not get complacent. … Trump is telling his militias to, you know, stalk people at the polling booths and intimidate the voting. There’s a lot of enthusiasm among these white, non-college people who love him.”
Viva la Trump? Vaya con di-us:
“Especially when they own the Supreme Court? And if, God forbid, they take the Senate again? We’re doomed. We’re doomed. People better go out there and vote. That’s all I have to [say].”
And here we go…it’s parachuting in:
“[I] worry about the possible — four years of this? [And it’s] the end of democracy — it’s the end of this country, four more years of this. I believe that.”
That sounds horrible. But wasn’t it supposed to have already occurred?
