Spend a semester in a classroom of students first, I dare you. Then get back to us and tell everyone how it worked out.

Seriously. He doesn’t know shit from shinola.

Today from Missouri Governor Mike Parson (r), fresh from kissing Donald Trump’s (r) ass:

Mike Parson @mikeparson
It is vital that we can safely reopen schools and get children back in the classroom.

I am thankful for the leadership of the Trump Administration for meeting with state leaders today to discuss reopening schools across the country.

“leadership”
“Trump Administration”

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

You can’t do it safely

You’re up to your waste in you know where.
#WorstGovernorEver

So what’s your plan??? What creative ideas did T Rump and you come up with?? Can we have a few details??? Or is it just reopen the schools, figure it out amongst yourselves???

As soon as you walked out of that room, he will never remember your name or who the hell you are. Keep kissing his ass though.

You know how some people seem to achieve a position a couple levels above their capabilities? That’s you, when you were Lt Governor.

How many times are you going to post the same shit? No matter how many, you still look and sound like a moron.

Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…

This morning in Warrensburg, Missouri:

“Black Lives Matter”

“…I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men or women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe…” – Elie Weisel – Oslo, Norway – December 10, 1986

No movement that seeks to dismantle these treasured American legacies could possibly have a love of America at its heart. Can’t happen. No person who remains quiet at the destruction of this resplendent heritage can possibly lead us to a better future. The radical ideology attacking our country advances under the banner of social justice. But in truth, it would demolish both justice and society. It would transform justice into an instrument of division and vengeance, and it would turn our free and inclusive society into a place of repression, domination, and exclusion. They want to silence us, but we will not be silenced. [applause, cheers] [crowd: “U.S.A.”]

[….]

We will state the truth in full without apology. We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on earth. We are proud of the fact that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. And we understand that these values have dramatically advanced the cause of peace and justice throughout the world. We know that the American family is the bedrock of American life. [applause, cheers]

[….]

This is who we are. This is what we believe. And these are the values that will guide us as we strive to build an even better and greater future. Those who seek to erase our heritage want Americans to forget our pride and great dignity so that we can no longer understand ourselves or America’s great destiny. In toppling the heroes of 1776, they seek to dissolve the bonds of love and loyalty that we feel for our country and feel for each other. Their goal is not a better America, their goal is to end America. [crowd: “boo!”]
