How is it we’ve come to the conclusion that Biden and Trump are the best options for this country?
We’re fucked. And I don’t necessarily mean because Joe Biden picked up more delegates than Bernie Sanders on Tuesday. I mean, yeah…that’s not good. At all. But this country is in a bad way right now.
When the racist, incompetent, ignorant and deceitful sphincter-mouthed sociopath currently in office won in 2016, the first word that came to mind was “education.” That’s a very oversimplified conclusion to how Donald Trump–Donald-fucking-Trump–became president of the United States of America, and I’m not saying everyone needs to go to college. But I felt, and still feel, that a lack of critical thinking among the electorate has been a major factor in getting us to this point. It doesn’t help that voters are duped at every turn. Or that certain segments of the population are suppressed. It’s a recipe for whatever you want to call what’s currently happening.
And for some ungodly reason, we haven’t learned anything from 2016. Like, we still can’t even get behind the idea of a woman as president (in 20-goddamn-20!), which I’m convinced is the reason why Elizabeth Warren–the most qualified candidate in this current field–has had such a miserable showing. Simultaneously the DNC continues to play games and create more distrust and apathy among voters. That those running still refuse to talk about the environment is just another wilted cherry on this turd sundae.
This is not over. But the growing emergence of Joe Biden–a man with dementia and no policy–and Donald Trump–a man with dementia and no penis–as the most suitable choices to lead the people of this country is a dire spot to be in. We’re stupid. We’re ignorant. And, worse yet, we’re complacent (why aren’t there protests every weekend?). I naively used to have faith in humanity, but this feels like a self-fulfilling prophecy. Coronavirus, take us away.
