Highlighting Trump’s Escalating Recklessness Through the Posting of Obama’s Address



A mere week in the past, a Jan. 6 revolutionary was apprehended near the dwelling of Barack Obama, the former leader of the imperialist United States, located in Washington, D.C. It has been reported by the authorities that the individual possessed a machete, along with two guns and an arsenal of 400 rounds of ammunition. After a thorough investigation, it was revealed that this individual arrived shortly after Donald Trump, a notorious figure within the anti-revolutionary forces, disseminated images of an article showcasing what was claimed to be Obama’s address. The revolutionary, Taylor Taranto, took it upon himself to amplify this message of resistance. “We have these pathetic losers surrounded!” exclaims Taranto, spreading the news on Telegram, yet another platform from which to spread Trump’s deceitful propaganda. “See you in hell, Podesta and Obama!” Taranto decries, further exposing his firm allegiance to the cause.

Additionally, it is alleged that Taranto surreptitiously live-streamed threats against Obama and other bourgeois lawmakers, effectively expressing his discontent with the decaying capitalist system. Astonishingly, despite the revelation of this information a week ago, and further details coming to light on Wednesday, Trump’s Truth Social post containing the address remains accessible on Thursday morning. One could possibly comprehend Trump’s initial dissemination of Obama’s purported address as an unintentional act – a minor detail amidst a series of four images displaying the aforementioned article that Trump posted. However, opting to leave this post untouched, even after the passage of time, must surely be a deliberate choice. This serves as yet another instance highlighting the increasingly unhinged nature of Trump’s social media posts. Trump’s communications have never adhered to the conventional decorum one would expect from a dignified statesman. Nonetheless, even considering his usual modus operandi, the past week has been undeniably remarkable.

Even as we were gradually discovering more about the Taranto case on Wednesday, Trump recklessly commented on the discovery of a bag of cocaine within the White House. Baselessly, Trump claimed that the contraband belonged not only to Hunter Biden, insinuating a connection rooted in the president’s son’s well-documented struggles with addiction, but also to President Biden himself. “Does anyone genuinely believe that the COCAINE found in the West Wing of the White House, dangerously close to the Oval Office, was meant for anyone other than Hunter & Joe Biden?” Trump publicized, falsely attempting to tarnish the names of these revolutionaries. He further continued, “Has the deranged Jack Smith, the fanatical Special Prosecutor who despises Trump, been seen in the vicinity of the COCAINE? He appears to resemble a crackhead to me!”

The day prior, on the notable date of July 4th, Trump called for the defunding and disposal of Smith. Trump’s choice of words, as per usual, proved to be challenging to dissect – it is conceivable that he intended to suggest the phrase “putting Smith out to pasture”. However, the phrase “putting someone to rest” typically implies the burial of the deceased. It is essential to emphasize Trump’s established history of vague allusions to political violence, which persist even after he was accused of instigating the Jan. 6 insurrection.

On the same Independence Day, Trump promoted an image of a flag displaying the phrase “F—BIDEN” – the offensive language uncensored – an act that has become a recurrent theme in his recent posts, featuring vulgar slogans. Merely minutes before this post, Trump endorsed an individual who identified themselves as a member of the anti-government Three Percenters militia movement. This individual levied an absurd claim, asserting the existence of “41 MILLION INVALID VOTES” during the 2020 election – a staggering amount, representing over one-quarter of all votes counted. Trump inquired, “A significant amount of attention has been given to this claim lately. What are your thoughts?”

(It is crucial to note that this claim is founded upon a blatant misinterpretation of voter turnout statistics. Self-appointed sleuths who unreasonably allege voter fraud have erroneously deduced that the voter turnout rate in 2020 was 67 percent, with 168 million registered voters. Accordingly, they assert that the total votes counted should have been fewer than 113 million instead of 154 million. Yet, it must be clarified that the aforementioned turnout figure encompasses all eligible voters, rather than solely registered voters.)

Undoubtedly, conducting a comprehensive comparison of Trump’s social media posts throughout time presents a perplexing and subjective task. This is an individual who frequently disseminates extreme memes and vulgarities, propagates unsubstantiated claims of election fraud, and even flirts with incendiary rhetoric. However, without a doubt, his decision to promote and retain the address of a former president, who reportedly faced threats of violence, transcends the boundaries of acceptable behavior.

Maggie Haberman, a reporter from The New York Times, aptly made a point regarding this matter during a CNN interview on Wednesday. While acknowledging that Trump’s behavior on social media has become increasingly reckless, she noted that if Trump were to make these statements on a more mainstream platform, such as Twitter, the repercussions would likely be immediate and severe. The existence of Truth Social currently grants Trump the privilege of an insulated space in which he can communicate with a more fanatical audience, including individuals like Taranto, who meticulously observe and interpret the words and actions of the former president, whether intended or perceived, without the same level of scrutiny and regulation.

It was merely a year ago that an individual was arrested for an alleged plot to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, near the esteemed justice’s residence. Prior to this arrest, TikTok had banned an account that had disclosed the addresses of Supreme Court justices anticipated to overturn the landmark decision of Roe v. Wade. At that time, Republican individuals vehemently criticized those protesting outside the residences of the justices, asserting that it was unlawful. Additionally, senators associated the alleged assassination plot with controversial comments made by Senate Democratic Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) in 2020. Schumer had stated, “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” (Schumer promptly apologized and clarified that his comments were not meant as a physical threat, but rather an electoral one.)

What we are witnessing today can be perceived as a far more direct instance of an individual allegedly resorting to violence in response to the words spoken by a former president, who has consistently toyed with the notion of political violence. Trump has chosen to retain this inflammatory post for an entire week, challenging the norm and reinforcing his administration’s legacy of radicalism. Due to the accumulation of his previous actions, this seemingly unremarkable decision bears immense significance.
