T-Rump Ascending — Not!

August 13, 2021

A warm comfortable outside this mid-day Friday here in California’s Central Valley — we haven’t felt the rigorous heat reportedly scorching through the Pacific Northwest, but the day is still young.

Today, too, is purportedly the day the T-Rump will be reinstated as POTUS — at least to the bat-shit crazy QAnon/Republican freaks who cause such turmoil:

I somewhat knew of the Aug. 13 bullshit (and other such likewise ‘dates’), but was only mentally listed on the periphery of my news detail, and was filed away under moronic, way-dumb shit. Just another in a shitload of nutcase MAGA hatters docket of tall-tales, conspiracies and plain bullshit.
Summary of this particular idiocy via Forbes this afternoon:

The remaining hardcore QAnon followers who are still holding out hope that former President Donald Trump will somehow be reinstated as president were dealt another disappointment on Friday, the latest date believers had pegged for an unconstitutional return to power after earlier predictions also went by with a whimper

For months, August 13 had been pushed as a date for Trump’s return to power, though it doesn’t seem there was much of a basis for why this specific date was predicted.

Some Trump followers who falsely claim widespread fraud robbed him of a win in the 2020 presidential election had hoped the GOP-pushed Arizona election audit would uncover proof of fraud, but the audit is running months behind schedule and cannot alter the long-certified election results.

According to Maggie Haberman of The New York Times, Trump himself was saying earlier this year that he believed he’d be reinstated to office by August, though his daughter-in-law and campaign surrogate, Lara Trump, said Trump’s team didn’t actually believe he’d return to the White House this year.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a noted conspiracy theorist regarding the 2020 election results, has also floated August 13 as the reinstatement date for Trump and several GOP senators who lost in 2020, while far-right attorney Sidney Powell has also claimed Trump “can simply be reinstated,” even though there’s no legal authority for that to happen.

QAnon conspiracy theorists had put earlier hopes on March 4 as the date when Trump would be sworn in as president — the “true Inauguration Day,” since March 4 is when presidents were sworn in before the 20th amendment passed in 1933, which moved Inauguration Day up to Jan. 20.
But there was an even stranger theory behind that date, with QAnon followers claiming the U.S. government secretly turned into a corporation in 1871, meaning all presidents that have served since Ulysses S. Grant have actually been illegitimate.
The idea that Trump would be sworn in as the 19th president on March 4 was enough to entice some QAnon followers to travel to Washington to see the non-existent ceremony, with Trump’s D.C. hotel choosing to jack up room rates around that date.
But while some still believe Trump will return as president, the winds were largely taken out of the sails of the QAnon movement when Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president on Jan. 20, leaving QAnon followers who truly thought Biden wouldn’t be allowed to become president dumbfounded.
Many QAnon followers believed Trump would arrive at Biden’s inauguration only to reclaim power and execute Democrats, who QAnon says are part of a Satanic child sex trafficking cult that secretly controls the U.S. through the “deep state.”

All this shit without an ounce, not even a teeny-tiny speck of evidence to back it up, or whatever.

Another synopsis on this shit is a must-read op/ed yesterday from columnist Tony Norman at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, drawing on T-Rump’s return, not only today but any day, as viewed by America’s Christian apparatus and what kind of a fucked-up mess the situation — a taste (great h/t Tom Sullivan at Digby’s):

Trump has been raised up in the spirit of that charming but much misunderstood rascal King Nebuchadnezzar. No one disputes that Trump always manages to be evil adjacent, but no matter how devilish his conduct looks to us, his immorality is a designated instrument of God’s will.

But who can blame the average American for being confused by all of this? For generations, it was assumed that in the End Times, American Christians would reject the Antichrist — not root for his success.

Donald Trump will then spit on his adoring enablers, and they will respond to their spontaneous baptism with cheers.

Yet maybe nothing like this:

And a real-life mesh of spiritual-horror shit this week (NBC News): ‘A California surfing school owner who was charged with killing his two children in Mexico is a follower of QAnon and Illuminati conspiracy theories who thought the children “were going to grow into monsters so he had to kill them,” federal officials alleged.

And, once again, here we are…

This is my favorite of the T-Rump mugs, though, ‘favorite‘ does not mean in any form or fashion, as in, ‘my favorite movie,’ or ‘my favorite song.’
It’s more of an anti-appreciation/like.

And aptly titled, ‘Basic Shapes,‘ by caricaturist/illustrator Chong Jit Leong (and found here), and displays the elemental form of a purloined sociopath — a bloated profile of flatulent bile and arrogant ignorance.
