Creating people's geographies
Now look, a lot of us um and aah and stammer on occasion. We’re all human.
But we’re not in public office charged with the responsibility of speaking for Americans. We’re not responsible for causing the death and immiseration of millions, for whipping up fear and paranoia, for rolling back liberties and hijacking democracy in the US, and for draining the US treasury for an illegal and immoral war for corporate war profiteers and associated cronies.
There are foibles to forgive and overlook, and then there are telling silences, crimes and impeachable offenses. This is the President of the United States in a Press Room at an official function, not to mention the other things this man is. In this short video, he struggles to even put two words together. This may well be a departure from his mangling of the language or inventing new words (“misunderestimate”).
Likely edited but nevertheless reflective of the man and the maladministration.
