Wingnut Weekly – 4 Oct 2020

Cartoonist Rob Rogers, who was fired for drawing cartoons that were critical of Trump, drew the above cartoon On Oct 2
Hey, maybe now the president will listen to the experts and stop putting others in danger! Who am I kidding? #TrumpHasCovid #ScienceMatters #SuperSpreaderTrump

This is the week that has seen the first debate … except it was not really a debate. Trump simply yelled abuse and conspiracy theories, while Biden spoke to the camera and talked with the nation. From the viewpoint of the wingnut brigade, Trump won and Biden was supposedly propped up with hidden microphones. Meanwhile back in our reality where facts matter, neither of those claims is actually true at all.

The big bombshell prior to the debate was the release of his tax returns, and what a revelation that was. Trump’s defence within one tweet is that it was fake news and also that the documents had been obtained illegally. If it is fake news, then there was nothing to obtain illegally. If however the documentation was real and obtained illegally, then it can’t be fake news. It simply can’t be both. Clearly clear thinking is not his strong point.

Meanwhile the really big news is that actions really do have consequences. Trump tested positive for COVID-19. Since many of his supporters sincerely believe it to be a fake disease, it will be fascinating to see how they square that circle. As for Trump, he is in several high-risk groups — elderly, obese, and low-income.

Let’s take a look at some of the other things they have been claiming.

Here are some of the highlights …

The Cult Of Trump

Trump getting COVID-19

The Debate

  • Trump’s ‘Prophets’ Urge God to Control Chris Wallace, Mess With Joe Biden During Presidential Debate
    • God apparently decided to ignore their plea.
  • Alex Jones offered his “expert analysis” upon the completion of last night’s presidential debate: Joe Biden was pumped up on blood transfusions and meth.
    • Jones is an “expert” in conning gullible people.
  • Alveda King says that thanks to the first presidential debate, “we saw and heard President Trump defend America’s families, America’s economy, America’s babies, America’s environment and America’s security.”
    • I really do have to get some of the stuff this guy is smoking, it is clearly quite potent.

Civil war


Fraudulent Voter Fraud claims

  • Michele Bachmann warns of the possibility of massive voter fraud in which completed mail-in ballots printed in China are smuggled into the United States and stored in barns until they are needed to steal the election from President Donald Trump.
    • This good honest “Christian” is looking you directly in the eye and lying to you.

Truly Bizarre

  • Brenden Dilley’s “gut” tells him that the bombshell New York Times article about Trump’s taxes was leaked by Trump himself as part of a “disinformation” campaign.
    • Brenden’s gut is not a reliable measure for anything … especially since this is the same guy who boasts about lying.
  • Mark Taylor says that when Trump was jeered by the crowd paying respects to Ginsburg last week, “those were demonic manifestations from that crowd.
    • No demons required, Trump is wholly sufficient by himself to inspire that well-earned response
  • Pat Robertson Predicts ‘The Return’ Prayer Rally Will Unleash Five Years of ‘Paradise’ in the U.S.
    • If it results in Joe Biden being elected, then yes.
  • Scott Lively contends that “the ubiquitous ‘rainbow unicorns’ and similar rainbow imagery for children is a more recent example of intentional LGBT grooming of very young children.
    • Given the observation that God deployed a rainbow after his genocide flood I guess it means that God is also gay.
  • Jesse Lee Peterson says President Donald Trump will regret nominating Barrett because “she’s no different than a liberal feminist” since she refuses to stay home and raise her husband’s children.
    • I’d place good money on a bet that this guy is not married.

What else came out of the Wingnut fantasy land last week?

Lots of other stuff. 

As always, it is an endless stream. Some of it is good, some sad, some is rather grim, and some is quite frankly hilarious. Here are a few more samples …

COVID-19 …
