Currently, this nation is in the midst of one of the biggest crises we’ve ever seen as not only the coronavirus continues to rapidly spread across the country, taking literally thousands of lives in its wake, but pass protests and riots break out from coast to coast in the wake of yet another murder of a black man at the hands of a white police officer. But if you think for even a moment that our president gives so much as a second thought to all those moms, dads, aunts, uncles, friends, grandparents, and children whose lives are lost throughout this pandemic, and the many more to come, or the numerous lives lost at the hands of police brutality, I’d like to take this opportunity that death is not something Donald Trump has ever given a damn about.
Earlier this year, Trump pushed this country to the very brink of war with Iran over little more than some petty nonsense and a desire to flaunt his ability to do so.
During that time, Donald’s impeachment wound was still rather raw and he regularly attempted to lick it at the expense of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who he blamed and continues to blame for the massive scar that will forever remain on his already disgusting record.
As a result of his growing grudge at the time, Trump was trying to pin the blame for the lost lives overseas on his biggest sworn enemy of all time.
And sickeningly enough, he did so by retweeting a photo of a dead body on his Twitter account.

Unsurprisingly so, masses of Americans didn’t react well to Trump capitalizing on a dead human being for political gain, with some pointing out that this is a damn good indicator of “mental problems” in our president:
Trump retweeted a picture of a dead body by a bot account claiming to be Iranian.
It’s beyond outrageous at this point. It’s left concerning in the dust. And absurd is a fading memory.
It’s fucking dangerous.
Trump is tweeting some fucking unhinged stuff this morning, even for him: picture of a dead body, Democratic leadership photoshopped into stereotypical middle eastern garb, and multiple claims that dems are siding with terrorists and the killing of Iranian citizens.

Donald Trump didn’t care about a life lost then, and he doesn’t care about a life lost now. Whether it be a white one, a brown one, a black one, or otherwise. Donald Trump cares about Donald Trump. Always has. Always will. And we are all dangerously close to paying the price for it.
