You know that feeling when you finish your business and the toilet backs up? For a moment, you stare at the rising water hoping it doesn’t crest the top of the bowl and spill all over the floor.
That’s what it feels like in America right now. The business of the 2020 election is over and yet there is something clogging up the system. Paperwork, mostly. Fake legal briefs and shit-stained claims being made by the President of the United States.
Our legal system and state governments have pressed the handle fifty-plus times and the shit Trump dumped into the election bowl still won’t go down.
We’ve all been faced with situations like this at home. Go fetch the plunger. Assess the risk of how much water might splash over the rim. Set the plunger deep and cover the hole at the bottom of the bowl. Give a few firm plunges with the rubber cup and hope to hell the brown water starts to recede and life in the toilet bowl can get back to order.
But sometimes, the shit still refuses to go down. Something’s backed up in there. So you try again. And again. In a worst case scenario, it might take a plumber to clear things out. That’s what the Supreme Court just tried to do. With a 9-0 vote they told Donald Trump they didn’t want to deal with any more of his shit. Yet still he sits and sulks. Shits and sulks. He’s pretty regular about that.
Trump keeps on dumping more shit in the Election Bowl 2020. To make matters worse, he’s gaslighting America by claiming it was election “dumps” of ballots that led to him losing in the worst way possible. He tanked in both the Popular Vote and the Electoral College.
Now he’s Rage Tweeting from his own toilet and refuses to come out and actually do his job on a daily basis. The stench of fascism and confederate instincts are rising from the sewage backing up through the Republican Pipeline as well. It might take more than a plumber to flush out this shit before we’re all through.
It might take one of those big-ass Vactor trucks with 4800 psi that you see working the public sewers now and then. Plug one of those babies into the White House septic system and give it a good blast. We might see Trump rise up from the roof on a geyser of his own wasteful attempts at overturning the election.
It’s no wonder President-Elect Joe Biden is planning to have the entire place sprayed down with antiseptic and fumigated once the Orange Turdmeister has been evacuated. It’s for the good of everyone’s health, and the public good as well.
The entire country could use a political enema, for that matter. We’ve put up with this Trumpism shit long enough in America. It’s crude to say it that way, but sometimes the truth stinks. That’s the only way to get enough attention to set thing right.
Then we can all light a match in the bathroom of our existence, let the smoke cancel out the stench and then hit the hardware store to find a better brand of toilet bowl to handle the next round of shit from turds clogging up our democracy and the republic on which it stands. It’s beyond time to flush the falsehoods, the claims of Fake News and the fraud that has been stinking up the White House and this nation for four long years.
