President Trump doesn’t have much interest in protecting Americans (from disease, from politice brutality, from anything really), but he’s pretty enthusiastic about protecting himself. “Great job last night at the White House by the U.S. Secret Service. They were not only totally professional, but very cool. I was inside, watched every move, and couldn’t have felt more safe. They let the ‘protesters’ scream & rant as much as they wanted, but whenever someone got too frisky or out of line, they would quickly come down on them, hard – didn’t know what hit them. The front line was replaced with fresh agents, like magic. Big crowd, professionally organized, but nobody came close to breaching the fence. If they had they would have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons.” (For a guy who doesn’t read, he’s sure memorized a lot of the greatest hits by America’s most notorious racists.) When the protesters are expressing anguish over their brothers, sons, and fathers being killed, they’re ranting. When they’re protesting about their right to get a haircut without a mask during a pandemic, they’re liberators.
