I love all the MAGAts comparing the Orange Racist Pussy Grabber and Reagan. Yeah, let’s look at that comparison.
I lived through Reagan. Both Reagan and His Fraudulency Donald the Trump share the similarity of being delusional liars leading an administration comprised of crony criminals. And being washed up actors. And bigots who accused entire minority races of being criminals and rapists. And hatred of the press. Oooh, how Reagan hated the press. As his administration officials went to jail by the dozen (138 in all), Reagan fumed as the press covered each and every one being convicted. He held fewer press conferences than any other modern President, considering the press the enemy and unworthy of his time and attention. (Well, the fact that he was going dotty by his second term was probably part of that too). And hey, Reagan was into crony capitalism too. That’s why so many of his administration officials went to jail, they were using government for their own profit, just like Trump is doing with his many decisions that just *happen* to enrich Trump-owned businesses like Mar-a-Lago Resort in Florida.
Of course, there’s also big differences between Reagan and SCROTUS. Reagan cloaked his bigotry and his hatred of the press behind a shield of geniality. Cheeto Mussolini is just an ass. Reagan faced a real, if declining, existential threat in the form of the Soviet Union. The Orange Racist Russian Stooge faces a bunch of illiterate goat rapists in the Middle East, a China that is more interested in buying America than in fighting America, and a Russia armed with rusty leftover Soviet gear that is a threat to former Soviet states but no threat to Western Europe or the United States. And, for all his senility towards the end of his term, Reagan actually had governing experience and his White House ran like a well oiled machine. SCROTUS’s White House by contrast is a disaster where people wander around not knowing what they’re supposed to do and nobody even knows how to turn on the lights because they fired all the people who knew how to do that.
So yeah, compare Reagan and Tump all you want, MAGAts. That comparison doesn’t make your God-Emperor Donald the Trump look good at all. Just sayin’.
