I’m holding off on the whole Trump mug shot t-shirt merch glut, that’s surely hit everywhere by now, at least for the time being. Sure, I despise that criminal cunt and want to mock him and his Cult of Morons at every well-deserved opportunity but it’s also a very serious moment.
We should have some appreciation for the significance of this moment in American history.
For the first time in the history of the United States, a former President tried to overturn the results of an election he lost and is now facing multiple charges related to that effort, and is — in at least in one indictment — being treated, more or less, as a criminal defendant.
All of that criminality is contained, for all of history to see, within Donald Trump’s mug shot: a ghoulish low-quality photo of a ghoulish low-quality, self-serving con-man, rapist, and failed President of the United States of America.
