45: They can’t do anything without my approval.
Governors: Watch us. You left us to handle this on our own, so don’t think you can jump in now to take credit and/or screw up all of our hard work at the end.

Like that time he chastised Obama for taking a golf trip while the country was facing a disease pandemic which ultimately claimed the lives of over (checks notes) one American.

all this so he can go play golf again in May

he’s so not leaving at the end of the year, one way or another

the thing is, what are we going to do about the 45% that will vote again for him and for the next one not caring if they kill us all

Remember the kid who was too busy picking his nose to pay attention to the Schoolhouse Rock videos in your middle school social science class? That’s Trump.

We’ll have to come up with a new word to describe this theory of presidential total authority. Hmmm…how about “totalitarianism”. Sounds right.

My $5 bet is if a governor won’t comply with “federal standards” (whatever that turns out to be) then he will not sign their disaster declaration requests, they won’t get any funding he can stop, they won’t get any supplies they request, and they’ll get dragged in the daily shitshow until they comply.

Reminds me of the pitch in those old cereal commercials.

“You’d need the combined authority of THREE branches of government to match the authority of ONE serving of Total Power!”
