What is it with this guy Trump…


…and why is the Republican Party continuing to put up with him?  He’s embarrassed the whole country in front of the rest of the world, handed China the keys to becoming the world’s leader, insulted whole religions (not to mention some of the largest ethnic groups in the world), made a travesty of his office, and lied so often that if you find it necessary for me to give examples, you’ve been drinking so much drool-aid that you wouldn’t believe them anyway.

AND, he’s taking stuff away from the very people who elected him: jobs (regardless of what he says, job creation is down), income (check out the budget revisions carefully), health care, educational opportunities…

The list goes on and on, not to mention the way his immaturity, low self-esteem, impulsiveness and senility are rapidly leading us toward another war.  And this one will be even less winnable than the laughable “war” on terror, and potentially far more deadly. Keep in mind that wars are fought by the poor, not by the rich who start them.

I think what upsets me most about this whole thing is that many of these things were obvious waaaay before the election, and it wasn’t difficult to project them onto the office of President under The Donald.  The fact that 46% of the popular vote went to the man speaks volumes about the way the electorate has been dumbed down by slanted newscasts, slanted posts on social media, and the general lack of civics education over the past forty or so years.

In fairness, when people have been denied the opportunity to learn about how government works, they can hardly be expected to recognized overblown promises and/or downright lies when they hear them.  On the other hand, there’s ignorance, and then there’s willful ignorance.  The first is excusable, the second unforgivable.  If a person needs to participate in an important endeavor, it is up to them to make sure they have all the information they need to do it properly, not just the stuff force-fed to them by media and religious leaders who have their own agendas unrelated to reality and truth.

The folks who elected this maniac are going to pay big time for their mistakes.  Unfortunately, the rest of us will be paying right along with them.

  1. The guy is so full of crap, that it will take years to clean up his mess. Also, the sad thing is, he doesn’t even know how to act like a president. A total embarrassment.

Got an opinion? Keep it clean. Don't ask open-ended questions, like "Does the Pope belong to a coven?" Make it pertinent.
