Donald Trump admires dictators, and envies them for their abilities to ride roughshod over their citizens.
Алякса́ндр Рыго́равіч Лукашэ́нка (Aleksandr Gregoryovich Lukashenko) has been the Dictator of Belarus since July 20, 1994. He’s bald, and he has baldly proclaimed his Right to oppress his people to his heart’s content.
It’s easy to have a look at what’s going on in Belarus, through CNN’s lens, as thousands and thousands of peaceful protesters have been marching in the streets of Minsk, protesting the recent rigged presidential election: https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/16/europe/putin-lukashenko-belarus-analysis-intl/index.html.
His most prominent opponent, Святла́на Гео́ргіеўна Ціхано́ўская (Sviatlana Heorhiyeuna Tsikhanouskaya) has fled to neighboring Lithuania, where she is safe.
Even Trump’s Secretary of State, former Wichita Tea Party Congressman Mike Pompeo, has said that the recent election in Belarus was not held in a decent and fair manner.
But, ever ready to report All Things Trumpian, associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones, who is with Trump 24/7, texted us only five minutes ago to let us know that Trump, who is desperate to keep his job, has just called Lukashenko to congratulate him and to pledge his complete and total support.
“You see, Johanna,” Trump said, “when I see a courageous bald guy encouaging his thugs to beat up his own people, that strikes a deep chord of sympathy within me, for him.”
“And if any of my Democrat enemies, like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, think they can save their Postal Service, they’ve got another thing coming."
