“Barron’s Fine.”

“President Trump spoke on his son Barron’s positive COVID-19 test before departing the White House en route to Des Moines, IA. First Lady Melania Trump revealed Wednesday that her only son with President Trump, Barron Trump, tested positive for the novel coronavirus after the first couple was diagnosed but said he experienced no symptoms and has since tested negative.”

And that duly noted, it’s now my turn to weigh in.

Fortunately, “all’s well that ends well”, doth sum up the first family’s encounter with the sickening, oft deadly Corona-V.

Even so, we need to further consider our video vignette. The Hill’s wordless, visual op-ed doth speak volumes. Indeed, candidate Trump’s silence drowns out both the madding crowd’s mindless, “U – S – A” chants and Marine One’s / Air Force One’s idling engines.

If nothing else, the clip’s creator has showcased daddy Donny’s dispassionate demeanor. Throughout the entire two minute run time, I found myself sitting at the edge of my seat, fully expecting the president (in title only) to flesh out his “Barron’s Fine” cursory remark.

Perhaps after the cutaway from the White House to the tarmac scene? Yes? No?

Regrettably, but not unexpectedly, No was the outcome.

My God, for a politician (in every negative sense of that word) who’s never at a loss for words, to not offer up a bit more parental concern? Maybe toss in a few of his trade mark superlatives? Perhaps brag about the Trump Klan’s genetic superiority?

This comment left on the YouTube site could very well sum it up best:

“Poor Baron [sic]. All the money in the world can’t make up for what he has to endure.”

In closing, Barron is not only fortunate enough to be afforded the best medical care anywhere on the planet, but is also damned lucky to, at least, have a mother who cares about his well-being.

Stay well wishes to mother and son.

Get well wishes, too, to the inattentive (in title only) father.

POTUS & FLOTUS: COVID-19+

Donald and Melania Trump have both tested COVID-19 positive and are now self-quarantining.

My stay well wishes to them both.

Considering the ferocious communicability of this disease, I cannot say that this revelation shocks me; it was only a matter of time that his denial of science and consequent reckless behavior would catch up with him.

My further wishes are that Donald will finally deem this godforsaken virus the grave threat to humanity that it is. Any reasonable man, especially one who wields the immense power and influence that he does, would use this as a teaching moment; unequivocally admit that he’s been dead wrong to downplay the deadliness of Corona-V!

Were I in his position, I’d now be Tweeting my keying fingers raw and speechifying myself hoarse to immediately invoke a nationwide mask-up order, to encourage everyone else, worldwide, to do the same.

Not owning a stash of masks is NO EXCUSE. Watch this TUTORIAL.

DANGER! Unsafe Sex! ~ 1 Quick Limerick #057 & #058

 

At safe sex issues, he’s flippin’ off snubber,
He is foolhardy, has brain made of blubber,
He “dates” blond, porn star honeys,
And mates with, Playboy Bunnies,
Yet, wears no “raincoat”, made of latex rubber!

 

Spurned spouse will not hold his hand! She’s astute!
From her boudoir, does she give him the boot?
She knows his flings, with his cuties,
Could spread microbial cooties,
To be prepared, she should buy Hazmat Suit!

 

Yeah… I know… I’ve posted 2 limericks instead of 1. But think of it this way… the marriage of 2 people forms 1 couple AND the risky conduct of 1 can endanger the health… HELL… the very lives of 2.

Additionally… ever since America’s earliest days, presidents have been deemed role models to look up to and admire. Even though this is no longer possible, we can all still learn… that is if we FIRST deem him the perfect example of how NOT to live our lives and NEXT act accordingly.

An Ideological Wardrobe Malfunction ~ Vid of the Day

In her attempt to hang up her husband’s figurative(?) white hood, white robe and brown shirt… FLOTUS Melania Trump flew off to Texas today to tour an immigration detention center. Call this her efforts to “make nice” along the U.S. / Mexico border on behalf of her husband, who… in all likelihood… neither actually feels remorse nor any particular need to heal the deep emotional wounds he’s inflicted upon young children and their mommies and daddies.

However, her good deed lost some of its sorely needed positive impact. You see, the First Lady wound up experiencing an ideological wardrobe malfunction. Emblazoned on the back of her jacket… for all the world to see… were the words…

“I Really Don’t Care, Do U?”

White House East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham responded thusly…

“It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe.”

For the record… I do believe Ms. Trump to be a far more decent and compassionate person than her husband. As such, that makes Ms. Grisham’s explanation believable… BUT

To say the least… this unfortunate incident could not have happened at a worse time.

To say the most… folks… I do question my objectivity in this matter. Ever since I got my firsthand glimpse of that mournfully crying, devastated, needlessly detained, immigrant child, I’ve been an emotional basket case. No normal person could ever eyewitness the embodiment of Donald Trump’s inhumanity to humankind without feeling consumed by profound sorrow and outrage.

To say a bit more… as is true with most of us… in our lifetimes most of us have suffered through UNAVOIDABLE incidents of separation anxiety. In my own case, I can still recall two specific events vividly… even though they occurred six decades ago (I’ve reblogged the two relevant passages from my 06/05/2018 blog and they’ll appear, below, as an addendum to this blog).

My apologies now go out to Ms. Trump for dragging her into this blog. BUT, since she IS attempting to soothe the worldwide outrage and since I am one person out of 7+ Billion souls in need of her therapy, I’d tend to think she’d understand my need to vent… especially since my criticism is focusing, primarily, upon her husband. That duly noted…

My one and only (mild) critique of Ms. Trump is that she should’ve been more careful. Or… at the very least why couldn’t one… MAYBE JUST ONE… White House staffer have noticed and taken her aside to suggest a change of wardrobe prior to her having gone out in public?

BUT… considering the YUGE [sic] cast of disreputable, slimy characters swimming in the deep end of today’s White House swamp… many of them personally handpicked by Donald… who among these deplorables would’ve ever found that “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” jacket message even remotely off-putting? Not caring IS their very way of life. Indeed… they’ve based their entire careers upon not giving a F about anything that truly matters.

In fact… most of them would’ve been far more likely to take the First Lady aside to high-five her on her way out the door!

 

ADDENDUM / REBLOG:

As a four-year-old I had needed surgery. Even though my folks had tried their very best to emotionally prepare me for my upcoming operation / hospitalization, on the day of my admission, those white uniformed strangers had so frightened me… so worried me that their plans included FOREVER taking me away from my parents that… en route to my assigned room… I actually threw up in the corridor.

As a six-year-old, I can recall how a long distance phone call had totally turned my little world upside-down. My maternal grandma had died and… there being insufficient funds to buy all four of us tickets… Mom would be attending the funeral service alone. While Dad, Sis and I waved our bus station good-byes, my heart sank and tears flowed. No amount of my father’s repeated, daylong assurances could convince me that I’d ever see my Mom again. Even though Dad… in his new role as head chef… had prepared us a tasty supper and I hadn’t eaten a morsel since Mom had served breakfast… with my stomach tied in emotional knots… I didn’t eat much.

 

 

 

99 Word Blog (#050) Raving Marriage “Maven” Trump

 

Hillary and Bill Clinton’s marriage is nobody’s business but their own. Nonetheless, busybody Donald Trump implies that Bill’s past infidelity, somehow, makes faithful Hillary (who salvaged her marriage) unfit to be president.

Looks like puerile, prurient Trump is far more preoccupied with who’s screwing who than helping save our screwed up world.

Looks like player Donny’s double standard is in play, too. After all, he did divorce Ivana to marry his mistress, Marla Maples… divorce Marla to marry wife #3, Melania.

One would think Donald Trump, the poster boy for infidelity and divorce, would declare himself unfit to be president.

 

99 Word Blog #001

While it’s highly unlikely that Donald Trump is actually a closeted liberal, if he were ever to be outed as such, this would certainly drive the GOP totally berserk. Even now, they must be frantically asking themselves…

If Trump really loathes foreigners, how come he married Melania, a woman of Slovenian extraction? How come in his hate speeches he never promises to deport her… erect a ten-foot tall wall around her homeland to keep her out of America’s homeland? Since he’s so narcissistic he’s practically married to himself, might this mean he’s actually cool with same sex marriage, too?
