The Rigger Trigger

I’m trying out a new nickname. The MSM calls it Trumpworld, from now on I’m calling it Trumpistan. Most of the stans are dictatorships in what former President* Pennwywise would call shithole countries, after all. Trumpistan it is.

It’s been a busy week in Trumpistan with the RICO indictment, attacks on Judge Chutkan, and cancelled press conferences. The Kaiser of Chaos is so scared that he’s listening to his lawyers. There’s a first time for everything.

I’m not the only one coining a new phrase. The Indicted Impeached Insult Comedian is projecting again. He claims that those who are trying to safeguard the Republic from his selfish madness are the real election thieves. Nothing new there but he has a new word to describe his adversaries; RIGGERS.

I am not making this up. He took to his benighted social media outpost to lash out:

Riggers? Really? Oy, just oy.

Two of the prosecutors who have filed charges against Trump are Black: Alvin Bragg and Fani Willis. Just change the R to N and you know where he’s going with this. His acolytes have picked up on the phrase because they think it’s clever. I think it’s disgusting, despicable, and dastardly but that’s how they roll in Trumpistan.

I guess Trump is no longer Mr. I Don’t Have A Racist Bone In My Body. That’s how they roll in Trumpistan.

This latest racist rant is a sign of sheer terror on Trump’s part. He’s terrified of going to jail so he fell back on bluster, bullshit, and bravado. This time, he may have gone too far for his legal team. There will be no press conference, no conclusive report next week, it’s been called off.

The Indicted Impeached Insult Comedian’s attacks only resonate in the blinkered corridors of Trumpistan. For the rest of us, rigger is a trigger that evokes hoods, burning crosses, and lynch mobs. That’s what we saw on January 6, 2021: a lynch mob out for blood.

I prefer not to comment on the effluent that oozes out of Trump’s mouth but there are exceptions to every rule. I rarely if ever use the term trigger but in this case it applies.

I hope rigger doesn’t catch on with Trump’s followers but it’s likely to. They’ve followed their dead leader down the rabbit hole of racism, stupidity, and selfishness that he started digging in 2015. Trumpers are low information voters who don’t understand the first rule of holes: When you’re in one, stop digging.

That’s how they roll in Trumpistan.

The last word goes to Los Lobos.
