    One of the few things Trump is particularly good at is getting idiots to do what he wants, which I guess from a selfish perspective is a useful ability to have when running for public office pretty much anywhere in the United States. I think he sucks as a leader and as a president, and I don't necessarily think this is a good quality for a president to have, but for what it may be worth, Trump is good at it.

    Everything pretty much sucks right now, and when everything sucks is when Trump tends to throw out some sort of red herring or do, say, or tweet something that is utterly outrageous in order to distract us from how everything sucks. His latest red herring was insinuating that he will postpone the elections.

    -The idiots on the Left are going crazy about how he said this and forgetting about how everything sucks.
    -His idios on the Right are jumping into the fight because whenever the idiots on the Left get pissed off about something (which is often), the idiots on the right almost instinctively take the side of whatever it is that's pissing them off.

    Now all the idiots are fighting about the election being postponed, which is something the president is totally incapable of doing. But, that's what we are now fighting about, and as a result our attention has been taken away from how everything sucks.

    This guy is going to be reelected. He's running against morons who can't even figure out how to win an election against a guy like Donald Trump.

    When you're more worried about getting re-elected than keeping your citizens safe

    BREAKING: Seattle City Council moves to abolish the entire Seattle Police Department and replace it with a "civilian led Department of Community Safety & Violence Prevention."

    They want to replace the police force with nonprofit programs and "community-led activities."

    Minneapolis, one of my favorite cities in the North, is turning into a crime infested, dangerous city thanks to the defund the police movement. The city is very liberal, although I enjoyed it because there is so much to do there; great food, beer, zoos, museums, music, etc.

    The Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) told residents they should “be prepared” to hand over their phones, wallets, and purses to robbers.

    The MPD has reported a 46 percent increase in carjackings and a 36 percent increase in robberies compared to this same time last year, according to WCCO.

    Police in the city’s Third Precinct alone have received more than 100 reports of robberies and 20 reports of carjackings in just the last month.

    Officials are now telling residents to be ready and willing to comply with the demands of criminals in an email sent to Third Precinct residents.
    “Be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet,” the police said in their email, a copy of which was obtained by Alpha News. The email said citizens should listen to criminals and “do as they say.”

    The message warned that “some victims have been maced, dragged, assaulted, and some threatened with a gun.”
    So much for law and order.

    They just need to hire some social workers. They can deescalate the situation and address the root of the problem.
