There was so much cringe-worthy material when the Ol’ Pussy Grabber continued his gaslighting of America on Tuesday night that it is nearly impossible to document it all in a part-time blog like this one. I mean, I gotta work, too, ya know? Sometime. Honest boss, this is work. Honest. It’s making all y’all lots and lots o’ green.
One of the cringe-worthiest moments came when the Ol’ Pussy Grabber turned our attention to the Navy Seal’s widow in the audience and tried to milk her grief for all he could.
The poor woman.
Bless her heart.
Who knows whether she knew she’d be made into the center of attention like that when she agreed to attend? Who knows whether it was helpful or hurtful to her to have the entire world watch her grief her husband? I guess she knows. I guess, it could go either way. Still, who doesn’t stand and applaud the widow of a Navy Seal in that moment — and Senator Rubio (R-Dickless) doesn’t know Shinola! Shame on him for trying to politicize that moment by claiming many people weren’t standing and applauding and implying that those many were Democrats?
Still, did anyone else in that uncomfortable moment of personal grief loosed upon us notice that Iwanka was standing next to her? And, did anyone else think that it would be nice and even right if Iwanka reached over and, I dunno, patted her on the shoulder? Put an arm around her? Said something? Did something other than stand there watching her like some kinda North Korean tourist minder making sure that the grieving widow grieved right for the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s shining moment of presidenting good? I guess the turd don’t fall far from the ass, hunh? Because all she could do is clap and stand and gawk. Probably the first time she’s seen another human being emote in anything that comes close to genuine emotion — is that too crass? Probably not. I mean the Ol’ Pussy Grabber passed the buck to President Obama and his generals and anywhere else but to himself when he introduced the entire shameful episode. So, why would anyone expect Iwanka to possess the basic human decency of how one person treats another in emotional need?
Her mother — I assume that the woman to the right of the widow is the widow’s mother –eventually reached over and gave her a side hug. I’m sure other people in the hall were crying. I would’ve been had I been there. Hell, I damn near cried watching it as a rerun. It was a damned moving moment. You think Iwanka could at least pretend to wipe a tear for the camera? If not genuinely emotional, the family at least knows how to moon for the camera.
Does the whole family consist of self-absorbed demons from the fiery furnace of Grandpa Pussy Grabber’s original narcissistic gaslighting abuse? Are they basically automatons switching on only when they sense their own narrow self interests are being serviced?
By the end of the entire sorry episode in a sorry speech in a sorry administration, I was a little nauseated by the treatment of this poor woman’s grief. I’m glad disgust isn’t a fatal condition; otherwise most of the country would be dead by now.
