So, a young, 20-year-old woman is running, for exercise, on a small road, in a small farming community in Iowa, when, from out of the blue, a car pulls up next to her and the driver, starts talking, whereby, it is reported, the young woman, Mollie Tibbetts, pulled out her cellphone and told him she was calling the police. The young man, now identified as 24-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera, a Mexican farm worker, ended up admitting to the police that he had killed her and took them to where he had “hidden her body.” And, the case was closed, until the trial, right?
No, unfortunately the Trump ‘team,’ consisting of Trump himself, his “hypnotized followers,” and certain representatives of the televised and print media have blown the incident totally out of proportion, as Trump mentions it on Twitter, along with Iowa’s Republican governor, Kim Reynolds and Vice President Mike Pence, even as the Republican senator, Senator Tom Cotton, of Arkansas, tweeted a picture of the white Mollie Tibbetts next to the brown-skinned Rivera.
Trump, while attending a rally in West Virginia, said, quote: “You heard about today with the illegal alien coming in, very sadly, from Mexico. And you saw what happened to that incredible, beautiful young woman. Should’ve never happened.”
Now, ask your self this: when’s the last time you saw, or even heard, Barak Obama, or any other POTUS, or politician say something like: ‘you saw the white man who murdered …
Donald Trump is a racist and so are all his swooning “fans,” all of who began chanting their usual: “lock her up, lock her up,” referring, of course, to Hillary Clinton.
The former Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich, emailed Mike Allen, an editor for Axios, a right-wing website known for touting other news sites as “fake news & media-hype,” that they needed to cover the Tibbetts story ahead of the Manafort/Cohen story and said that if: “Mollie Tibbetts is a household name by this October, Democrats will be in deep trouble if we can be blocked by Manafort-Cohen, etc. then the GOP could lose (the House) badly.”
Unfortunately for them, as well as Donald Trump, it is much more likely that Trump himself, will be the next one to spend some time in prison, along with Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, who was convicted on eight counts of financial crimes.
And then, there is Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to eight federal charges, ranging from tax evasion to campaign finance violations. All the violations implicated the POTUS, as Cohen’s statement, coming via his lawyer made it clear that Cohen would never accept a pardon from a man that is both corrupt and a very dangerous person in the oval office.
The exploitation of this horrid, cold-blooded murder of a college student is so horrid in itself that it is very hard to believe that it is happening this very day and being picked up by the various form(s) of print, computer, airwave and other media outlets, and all because Trump wants everyone to believe his lies and avoid spending any time in prison himself, as he rants and raves things only his “people” can understand. One can only imagine but maybe, just maybe Trump will actually end up inside a cell himself. Wouldn’t that be something, huh? Wonder if he’d tweet?
And as one of my favorite comedians said: “What a revolutin’ development this is.”
Peace be with us all
