How do you think Kim Kardashian got her hips? She looked in the mirror and said "THICCCC Be in the name of God!"

Then she went to the plastic surgeon.

Ah yes. *Donald J Trump:*
The "self made man" who had a million dollar bank balance by age eight
The “patriot” whose Daddy dodged his draft for him.
The “billionaire” who hides his tax returns.
The “genius” who hides his college grades.
The “businessman” who bankrupted 3 casinos and lost over $1B in 10 years.
The “playboy” who pays for sex.
The “Christian” who wants churches packed _(to worship him?)_ at the height of a pandemic.
The “philanthropist” who defrauds charity.
The “innocent man” who refuses to testify and prevents those who could exonerate him from doing the same.

*Trump Talk Translated:*
"Many People have told me" = Voices in my head
"A lot of people don't know" = I just learned
"Believe me" = I just lied _(optional; if omitted, it is implied)_
"In Fact ..." = I'm about to lie
"He's a great guy" = I will deny ever knowing this person after they begin to tell the truth about me
"MAGA" = Enriching me off American federal-tax-payers (whom I am proud *not* to be one of)
"Nobody knew" = Everyone knew except me
"Huge" = moderate to below average in size
"Loser" = someone who makes me feel inferior due to their talent or accomplishments
"Policy Briefing" = Fox and Friends, Hannity, Carlson or Alex Jones
"Reaching out to the people" = Rage-tweeting from the toilet
"Liar" = Someone who tells the truth about me
"Fake News" = True things said about me by others
"Locker room talk" = True things said about me by me

*Trump's Rules:*
Thou shalt have no other god before me. *
The purpose of the United States is to trickle wealth upwards.
The "elites" are the exception: they wear the mark of Cain, being defined as those wealthier than me who refuse to trickle wealth, or public flattery, Trumpwards.
The Attorney General, in particular, is to act as my personal Attorney, moreover the purpose of public servants, State Governors, and Local Governments is to serve my interests, at my pleasure. Those who refuse to serve my interests are to be considered the official, nominal "swamp".
The remainder form the *actual* swamp, which will be restocked regularly, with deletions of those insufficiently sycophantic/rabid.

* _This is the nearest Trump (like Stalin once he left the seminary) has ever got to being a Christian: they adopted this rule of engagement as their own._

I remember a quote from "Chernobyl" that was something along the lines of:
"Every lie invokes a debt to the truth and sooner or later that debt must be paid"

"They only pretend to believe these things on television for money." The most important takeaway from this show. I hope people understand that.

It’s depressing watching this in late June now that the country’s response is back to about mid April level.

The hydroxychloroquine thing really bugs me, I take it and I'm one of those people with lupus that is going to either run out soon or pay $2, 000 for a refill. It's infuriating.

“Even though Trump has access to the country’s top experts, he’s still getting advice from watching TV.” That is one scary truth.

Because it is often misused, COVID-19 is short for "Coronavirus Disease 2019" and is not the name for the novel corona virus, the correct name is SARS-CoV-2 (Severe acute respiratory (disease)syndrome corona virus 2) being the second discovered virus in the SARS family.
