I don’t know about anyone else, but at a certain point in the presidential election process, I feel like I am ready to vote and get on with my life. This year, that feeling is magnified by one hundred.
Randy Rainbow released his new video today. It is entitled IF DONALD GOT FIRED – Randy Rainbow Parody (featuring Patti LuPone!). Based on the song If Momma was Marriedfrom the musical Gypsy, the addition of Patti LuPone is the cherry on top.
The fact is, is that you know who has to go. For the sake of our country, for the sake of our democracy, and for everything we hold dear.
The legal definition of reckless homicide is as follows:
A crime in which the perpetrator was aware that their act (or failure to act when there is a legal duty to act) creates significant risk of death or grievous bodily harm in the victim, but ignores the risk and continues to act (or fail to act), and a human death results.
For months, we have all known how dangerous and life-threatening Covid-19 is. The more than 200,00 American who have died from the virus is a testament to itself. When you know who was taken to the hospital last weekend after he tested positive, there many of us who did the “told you so” dance.
If there was any glimmer of hope that he had learned form the experience, it soon became obvious that hope with him is a mirage. The number of White House staffers getting sickgrows longer every day. Adding to the list of the infected or possibly infected is not just those who work for you know who. He was the guest of honor at a fundraiser in New Jersey just days before he went to the hospital.
The question is, can he be charged with reckless homicide?
As far as we know, no one who has been or might be infected with Covid-19 from either the White House or the fundraiser has died. But the fact that he told Bob Woodward back in February that he knew and did nothing is in my mind enough information to charge him.
The question of if and when this comes to pass is unknown at this point. But given the evidence, as we know it to be today, I believe that there is a good chance he would be found guilty.
To say that the results of the 2016 Presidential election was and still is a flashpoint is an understatement. Almost four years later, we are still grappling with the consequences and asking what we can do to make sure that you know who is a one term President.
Former Obama staffer and political strategist David Plouffe answers this question in his new book, A Citizen’s Guide to Beating Donald Trump. Published earlier this year, the book is how to guide for the average citizen. Mr. Plouffe lays out a series of strategies to inspire and encourage those of us on the ground to stop you know come November.
There are some books that don’t hold up to its promises. This is one of them. Not that it is completely bad, the information he provides comes from years of experience. But if I was looking for the proverbial kick in the behind to get involved, that kick was did not have the power I thought it would.
However, the message is the most important thing. It is that you know who, for many reasons, it unqualified and incapable of running this country. We need a President who is qualified and capable. That person is Joe Biden.
