He’s only been in the Crap House for 9 months but it seems like he’s been there for at least 4 years already. Yes, I’m talking about our esteemed President Donald J. Trump and I don’t know about you but to me and many others he’s already a full-fledged nightmare that everyone is wishing would just go away. Trump and his administration are a bit like living in the “Twilight Zone.” For starters it should now be clear to everyone that Trump has problems working with people. In fact, it appears he can’t work with people because he seems to have an attitude of “my way or no way.” That attitude might work in the greed ridden halls of business but it doesn’t work when you are the leader of a country or in any other high political office. Politics is an art and, specifically, it is an art of COMPROMISE. The Democrats showed during 8 years of the Obama regime that they didn’t understand that little basic reality of politics and now the Republicans are showing that they don’t get it either! And as for Trump? The man doesn’t even know the meaning of the world “compromise” I assure you.
Trump is now going to bed with the Democrats because he can’t get anything done with his own party, the GOP, and that would be because of his attitude of “my way or no way.” Like I said, Trump has problems working with other people. Right off the bat he offended the GOP leadership in both the Senate and House to the point that all they wanted was to do anything and everything they could to screw him over and they’ve done just that for the past 9 months. That’s why Trump’s agenda has gone nowhere! So now he’s hopped in bed with the Democrats to get Obamacare axed and he’s going after GOP congressmen and senators who don’t support the latest version of “repeal and replace.” Case in point….Trump is now going after Rand Paul for not supporting the latest version to screw the working poor out of affordable healthcare.
No one should be surprised by Trump’s actions (or lack thereof) over the past 9 months because he’s simply doing what he’s done for decades in the business world. That is….Screwing people over! That’s the way he’s gotten to where he is via his real estate business and investments, screwing people over, and he’s made a lot of enemies along the way who have not forgotten how they were screwed by him. Trump is just continuing his typical M. O. A number of his FORMER supporters, I saw a few days ago, burned their “MAGA” hats in a bonfire already because they are so frustrated and disappointed with him. LOL guess they now realize just how Trump played them like a fiddle for the naive people they are. But, again, get used to it because that is what Trump has done in the business world for decades now and in the near future he will continue to screw over his supporters IF and when he deems it to HIS advantage. This man, this president, has no loyalty to anyone but himself, period!
Trump is not only a backstabber with no loyalty to anyone but himself and not only does he have problems working with and getting along with other people but Trump also has a problem of being a hypocrite. In other words, he’ll tell you what he thinks you want to hear and then move on and do whatever he wants anyway. Just ask people in the real estate and investment world if you don’t believe me.
Speaking of Trump’s hypocrisy I want to say two things. Now that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by Hurricane Maria I wonder if Trump will pay the US territory a visit like he did to Florida and Texas (x2 because the first didn’t go well)? I will be very surprised if he does visit the island because it’s mostly inhabited by Hispanic people and I think now it’s pretty clear what he thinks of Hispanic people. To say this man is a “racist POTUS” would, frankly be an understatement.
Since the beginning of his campaign for the presidency and since the very day he took up residence in the crap house Trump has pushed his border wall thingy all the while saying he was going to “make Mexico pay for it.” Mexico has made it abundantly clear that they are not going to pay for Trump’s wall and, in fact, former Mexican president Vicente Fox has let it be known how he feels about it all by saying “FU Trump.” Yet, Trump continues to ply his border wall and make Mexico pay for it CRAP because he thinks that’s what his supporters want to hear. And he’s right! That is what the hillbilly throwbacks in this nation want to hear! Excuse me BUT in this 21st century with all of our fantastic electronic inventions why do we need an actual physical wall running from the Pacific Ocean in California across Arizona and New Mexico and into Texas all the way to the Gulf of Mexico? Wouldn’t the smart solution be an electronic “wall”? Prisons and jails use them and in some areas the Border Patrol is already using them and they work amazingly well and are CHEAPER than building a physical wall. Frankly, I’ve been scratching my head wondering why Trump wants to throw us back into the 1940’s by building a Soviet/Cold War era wall like that built in Berlin by the Soviets to separate East from West Germany. The Soviets had to build a brick and mortar wall back then because none of the electronic wonders we have today existed. But Trump seems not to know that so he’s pushing the brick and mortar routine!
And then there is DACA.
Trump wants to punish the children of illegal immigrants which makes no sense to me at all. Most of these youth were babies when their parents illegally crossed the US-Mexico border and they had NO CHOICE in the matter. These youth have been raised in the USA. These youth have attended USA schools and colleges. Some of these youth have served HONORABLY in the US military. And MOST of these youth hold AMERICAN jobs and are productive members of AMERICAN society. In fact, these youth are AMERICANS not Mexicans, not Central Americans, not South Americans! Most of them have never been to Mexico or anywhere else and wouldn’t know the first thing about living there and most don’t even speak Spanish but ONLY ENGLISH! But Trump discounts all of that an now threatens to deport them to Mexico! Wouldn’t the INTELLIGENT solution be to give them US citizenship? I think he’s missing a voter power base here! Giving these people citizenship would all but guarantee his re-election in the next election along with all other Republicans. It’s an opportunity to turn traditionally Democrat voting Hispanics into voting REPUBLICANS but Trump seems not to realize that or just plain doesn’t care.
One thing that gets me is a few days ago following the huge and deadly earthquake in Mexico City, Trump got on his now infamous Twitter account expressing his sorrow for the Mexican people and letting Mexico know “we are hear for you.” Say what? You mean after all of his anti-Hispanic, anti-Mexico talk over the past year and now he wants the Mexican people to think that “we” (the USA) is here for them? LOL is that a joke? This is just one more demonstration of Trump operating the way he’s always operated in the business world and that is by playing BOTH sides of the fence in hopes of coming out on the winning end! That’s how he’s gotten to where he’s at in the business world. By playing BOTH sides of the fence and using them to HIS advantage! He’s simply just applying to politics and international relations what has worked amazingly well for his personal fortune in the business world. I assure you Donald Trump couldn’t care less about the people of Mexico in their moment of tragedy. He’s just paying them lip service, that’s all.
I and many other people have now deemed Trump to be a RACIST and that explains why following his nomination as the GOP candidate for the presidency the KKK and Neo-Nazis were quick to jump on the bandwagon and throw their support behind him and Trump at first said nothing! After a RARE moment of listening to the advice of others, which he normally does not do, he finally came out and said his campaign didn’t need their support. Yet, I’m STILL wondering why he had to be pushed to say that and reject their support. Why didn’t he say that immediately after these racist groups expressed their support for him? And, again, we saw the SAME hesitation in Trump after the race riots in Charlottesville. He, again, had to be prodded to denounce the KKK and Neo-Nazi groups who were behind those riots. You would think that he would have immediately come out and condemned these groups but he only did so after hesitating and listening to a bit of advice, which he rarely does. In my mind only a racist would hesitate to condemn these racist hate groups and their actions and that is what Trump IS and has CLEARLY been demonstrating for the past 9+ months!!
I thought when Barack Obama was elected POTUS that he’d turn out to be one of our greatest presidents because he’d work to unite this country like never before. But I was severely disappointed when I realized Obama was NOT a uniter but a DIVIDER. Obama seems to have driven the wedge between White and Black America deeper and now Trump is driving it even deeper including a wedge between White, Black, and Hispanic America!! Trump, like Obama, isn’t a uniter either but a DIVIDER. And to me that’s a pretty clear sign that Trump, like Obama and several others, is NOT a LEADER but only an amateur leader! And that begs the next question I have…..
Why can’t America elect people who are innate (natural) leaders? Why can’t America elect people who are REAL statesmen and stateswomen? What is the problem with the American voters that are causing them to, frankly, elect the scum at the bottom of the barrow? One reason for this, I know, is that people who are innate leaders want nothing to do with American politics because it’s so corrupted now that it is BEYOND salvation! And the innate American statesmen and stateswomen simply save their breath because they know anything they say will be drowned out by the psychotics on BOTH the Left and the Right so why bother!!
And this is now the SAD state of affairs America has come to. A faltering ONCE great nation that has lost it’s rudder and direction and is now simply being thrown to and fro on the waves of disaster!! Just yesterday Trump pulled another stroke of ignorance when he addressed the United Nations General Assembly and threatened to wipe North Korea off the face of the map and…. ?????…. Venezuela? WTF??? Why in God’s name would a sitting POTUS stand before the UN and make such threats? I fear that in Trump’s mind he thinks our military might can be used to FORCE other nations to do what WE want them to do and if that is the case I can guarantee you this man is going to get us into World War Three because he’s an egotistical idiot. And THAT is something ALL Americans had better be thinking about right now! This president’s mouth is going to get us and the rest of the world in trouble! You’d think he’d be bright enough to know that when you are leading a nation you just can’t go about saying whatever you want but he appears not to know that or, again, simply doesn’t care.
For some of you I’m sure Trump is turning out to be your god-send but before you get to overly excited you might want to do some deep thinking and pondering of what he’s done in just NINE short months. He might be a fantastic super-dooper businessman but as a politician and leader he’s a complete AMATEUR! And amateurs have a way of getting us into trouble rather quickly and deeply. This man should have never been elected but in looking back it seems that the GOP could come up with nothing better so I’m not surprised at all. And, in fact, judging from the last election it seems that neither the GOP or the Democrats could find anyone better to our nation’s top leadership other than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton! Seriously? NEITHER one of these people should have ever been nominated!!
There is something fundamentally wrong in America today and we all know it. The common working American people have been trumped (pun intended) by the greedy corporations which are now FIRMLY and FULLY in bed with our government. And THAT, my friends, is the very definition of FASCISM!! And that IS what we now have in America today. We are a clearly FASCIST STATE minus the swastikas and smart uniforms! And how have we gotten to this point? Very simply because the American people have ignored and shunned their CIVIC DUTIES for decades now and the corporate world and political world have simply taken advantage of that opportunity! And that is how I now know this nation is OVER and will NEVER be saved because it is now beyond salvation!! And that is, indeed, very sad. Sad that a ONCE GREAT nation and people have fallen so far!
