Dems Say Trump Responsible for San Francisco Earthquake of 1906

Okay, they didn’t say that. But, for a second you wondered, did they?

That’s because the new communications strategy for the Dems and their pop culture Mini-Me cohorts is to blame everything and anything on the president, regardless of credibility, and hope at least one thing sticks. Apparently, no one ever read them “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.”

Trump has been previously held responsible for global warming, global cooling, climate change, all racism, global sexism, Nazi marches, and the existential calamity that his accusers did not get an Easy Bake Oven on their 4th birthday.

Yesterday’s installment featured unintentionally amusing musician of some sort John Legend calling on the president to apologize for “demonizing Muslims.” The airhead, as is the routine practice, is trying to tie the president into the recent murders of innocent people in New Zealand and other tragedies. Legend added the usual leftist immigration fantasies and, of course, race hustling. It’s become the standard play: horrible things happen, no matter if it has nothing to do with Trump, and blame him for it. Then wait for Bill Maher, MSNBC, CNN, etc. to pick up the ball and run with it. Added bonus? Meghan McCain will somehow relate it to her father then begin to cry.

The Dems have done this before, as in Charlottesville, but lately they’ve really stepped up the basic absurdity of the charges.

Which is a good thing.

Because yes, people are dumb. Few are that dumb. The more fanciful the claims the less they will be believed. But even better, the more ridiculous the claim from one in the zany leftist hive and the more others will feel the need to one up them. Thus pushing the whole lot to inane irrelevance.

If they had real blame to lay they wouldn’t mix the charge with base alloys inherently silly in their very utterance. So this also says they aren’t sharp enough to come up with anything other than their by-the-book race hustling and watermelon communism. Listen for both. One or the other is always there. Sometimes in tandem.

As for the president? He’ll continue to drive them to distraction by ignoring them and when he’s not, mocking them for their imbecility and over-the-top weirdness. Like the Beto hand thing he started that even SNL picked up.

See, airheads? The president can play the game as well.
