    President Donald Trump's speech to the people of the United States on December 7th, 1941.

    My fellow Americans, on December 7th, 1941, a date which will live in infamy, the Japanese Nation attacked our forces in the Hawaiian Islands and other locations throughout the Pacific.

    Americans need to understand that this attack is no worse than a small group of thugs exploding some firecrackers on a tugboat. There is no reason for me to ask Congress for a formal Declaration of War. There is no need to increase our armed forces or military equipment.

    The problem will go away, on its own, very shortly.

    This Government, as promised, has maintained the closest surveillance of the Soviet construction work on the island of Cuba. Within the past week, some questionable evidence has appeared to show that a series of missile sites may be in preparation on that beautiful island. The purpose of this construction was clearly not an issue to me.

    But I felt obliged to report this new development to you in fullest detail and to assure you that's it's a nothing burger and there's nothing to worry about. I've spoke when the Russian leader and he has put my mind at ease about the friendly and cooperative atmosphere between our two nations. What we've seen is a program to provide jobs to Cubans to help their economy and nothing more.

    My fellow colonists, recently there were some shots fired on Lexington Green. I can assure you, they were fired by people hunting ducks out of season. They will be fined, and that will be the end of the matter.

    Yes, you would seriously ask if commentary on the utter ineptness of your revered Idiot-in-Chief is a joke. It isn't.
    Neither is the fact that America has one of the highest per-capita death rates. Neither is the death of 190,000 Americans.

    If Trump had been president in 1941, everyone West of the Rockies would now be speaking Japanese and the rest would be talking German.

    But do you have any evidence that Japan or Germany wanted to colonize North America, and is that why the Yanks attacked the Vietnamese and wanted to nuke the Vietnamese and bomb China to support French colonialism?

    And he would need to know that you have to have a good memory to be a convincing liar, and that while you can convince all the people some of the time, and convince some of the people all the time, you can't convince all the people all the time, even though there are known-knowns and known-unknowns and unknown-knowns and unknown-unknowns.

    Not hindsight. I knew Trump was a foul, self aggrandizing egomaniac the day he came down the escalator. Shortly thereafter I learned he was also a pathological liar.

    My Pearl Harbor analogy was not too far off. He is now claiming that was was just acting like Churchill and telling his people to remain calm.

    What a lotta equine feces. Or is it male bovine feces?

    September 15, 1940.

    Mr. Trump, the Nazis are bombing us nightly - what should we do?

    Just remain calm. The danger from these nightly bombings has been overplayed by the evil media. The effects of the bombings are not any more severe than falling into a mud puddle. Adolph will soon stop the bombings, probably by the end of the month. There is nothing we need to do to prepare because there is nothing to prepare for.

    As smart as and as perceptive as you must be, maybe you should play the lottery...

    So you believe that being smart and perceptive helps you win the lottery. That's on par with many of your other nonsensical comments.

    “In the early days of World War II, Franklin Roosevelt told the country, and I quote, “The news is going to get worse and worse before it gets better and better. And the American people deserve to have it straight from the shoulder.”

    Straight from the shoulder. The job of a president is to tell it straight from the shoulder, tell the truth, to be candid, to face facts, to lead, not to incite. That’s why I’m speaking to you today. The incumbant president is incapable of telling us the truth, incapable of facing the facts and incapable of healing. He doesn’t want to shed light, he wants to generate heat and he’s [stoking] violence in our cities.”

    - Joe Biden
