The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is singing at his inauguration. I’m so angry.
HOW COULD YOU?!
Fine, do it. But get off that fucking high horse. Your voices reach the stratosphere, but your morals are in the gutter. Don’t even pretend anymore!
(I have this belief that he wanted the Mormons to sing for him as a way of forcing naysayers to worship at the altar of Trump. But, then, how Utah voted… we really can’t call ourselves naysayers, now, can we?)
(It’s more likely that no one else said yes. Ask the Mormons! They’ll call it a chance to spread the good word, and stick their tongues right up his asshole!)
Who better to herald a racist than a religion that refused to give black members full status, until threatened with loss of tax-exemption? Who better to honor a misogynist than a religion that sees women as little more than vessels? Who can mark the reign of a pedophile rapist like a church with a legacy of forced child brides? Who else could represent a power-hungry, money-grubbing bully like the wealthiest religion in the U.S., that keeps a political, ideological stranglehold on an entire population?
If nothing else, The MoTabs enter his immutable blandness into history. Is there a human being in the world with less groove? I mean, if you’re going to be a despot, at least be cool. Unfit, unready, petulant, vitriolic, stupid!, BANAL.
