The bizarre shooting incident just outside the White House that saw the ‘brave’ president of the US – notorious for his killing sprees of the unarmed both at home and abroad – run like a rat for cover in the midst of his speech to reporters, once again showed to the world how a cowardly Donald Trump wants to ‘Make America Great Again’ (MAGA).
The media was taken aback, while Americans facing the brunt of brutalities of Trump’s armed-to-the-teeth security forces for the past two-and-a-half months of peaceful nationwide protests following Afro-American George Floyd’s sadistic murder by white racist police officers, wondered what kind of a nincompoop the electorate placed at the apex of power in Washington four years ago.
Should the masses again vote this November for a further 4-year term for such an idiotic criminal who always fears for his dear life, but has no inhibition in ordering the killing of people in the US and all over the world?
As the city of Portland continues to protest for the 74th straight day against the unjust social order governing the country by making a bonfire of the US flag – the symbol of racist tyranny – and as Chicago burns badly, the people are bewildered at the real meaning of Trump’s frequent harping on MAGA.
It is obvious that the ‘incredible hulk’ called Donald Trump is not just a dotard but a dastard to his very core, afraid of his own shadow.
Even the persons assigned to guard him are a brainless bunch as Monday’s incident of gunfire near the White House revealed.
The shooting outside the room where he was giving a press briefing, was not an assassination attempt, as the terrified Trump thought and dashed behind the podium for dear life.
It turned out to be the nervous act of near murder by a security guard whose competence was tested and found to be severely wanting by a person who faked carrying a firearm but didn’t have any, and almost paid for his prank with his own life.
According to reports, around 6 p.m. local time, a middle-aged man approached a secret service uniformed officer about a block from the White House grounds, telling him that he was carrying a weapon.
If the official investigation account is to be believed – although few in the US believe it – ‘the man then turned around, ran aggressively towards the officer, and in a drawing motion, drew an object from his clothing, while crouched into a shooter’s stance as if about to fire a weapon. The secret service officer then fired his weapon, striking the individual in the torso.’
That was the official account from a greatly embarrassed security agency which had to eat the humble pie and admit that no firearm was found on the suspect, Trump now feeling safe returned to the podium to utter his usual trash by boasting that he was the least perturbed.
Irrespective of the truth of Monday’s incident, it once again showed that confusion rules the corridors of power in Washington. It is indicative of a country in decline, with moral and political bankruptcy all over the place.
Whether it is the theatrical tweets of Trump or the frenzied utterances of the gangster Mike Pompeo (who masquerades as Secretary of State) on the prospects of growing Iran-China cooperation, it is obvious the US has reached the lowest point in its history.
Imagine, a country that possesses doomsday weapons and destabilizes the world through unethical export of lethal weapons to rootless and unrepresentative regimes for massacre of the innocent, trying to pressure the UN Security Council to extend its obsolete arms embargo on the Islamic Republic of Iran!
Trump and his team of terrorists should know that cowards die a thousand times before their death which will sooner or later extinguish their sparks of life, while the mess these crooks have made of US state policy on the misconception of MAGA, will continue to further discredit Washington at the UN and all over the world, as a prelude to its eventual collapse.
