I wanna feel sympathy for this guy. I really do. But try as I might, I can’t muster up a single shred of it.
Let me back up. There’s a radio/sports dude in Seattle named Paul Gallant. I’d never heard of him until literally like 10 minutes ago, but that’s neither here nor there. Back in mid June, when Seattle had 6 city blocks taken over by insane CHAZ/CHOP lunatics, and Trump was concerned about the destruction and mayhem because the Seattle mayor was a worthless piece of crap, Paul Gallant told the president to just “chill dawg.” BEHOLD:
Yeah. Fast forward to yesterday, when the protesters made it to HIS neighborhood:

And there was more:
Oh NOW enough is enough, Paul? Now that it impacts YOU? NOW you’re really angry?
I mean, just chill dawg. Seriously.
And a zillion different people on Twitter are saying that to him. He’s getting trolled about it like crazy, and rightly so. But he’s a self-righteous dude with a cat, so naturally, he has learned exactly NOTHING from this experience:
Woke up to a bunch of ppl tweeting “Chill Dawg” at me. 😂 I laughed.
I stand by what I originally said. 5 weeks ago, Chaz/Chop/whatever didn’t seem as bad as portrayed by those outside of it. I‘d walked through it a few times.
Then burning & pillaging actually happened. Classic pic.twitter.com/UKBAohC6mt

So, he stands by his idiotic attitude because when HE walked through CHAZ, it wasn’t as bad as other people were insisting it was. And even now that he knows it WAS that bad, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that he wants everyone to know that HE AND HIS CAT ARE SCARED, y’all. Because it has hit close to home. Now it matters.
I love Nancy’s response to him:
What you’ve said here is admitting that you do not understand history and President Trump does. As do most educated people.
History teaches us that once this kind of thing starts happening it WILL escalate.
It’s why you’re a DJ & the President is the President.

And that’s what’s even more amazing about Paul’s doubling down. He knows now, based on what DID happen in CHAZ, that his impression of it was dead wrong, and that even their worthless mayor had to finally get it under control. And EVEN STILL, he can’t see his own hypocrisy.
This is why I have no sympathy for him. This is what karma looks like, cat-boy. Learn a lesson from it.
