Those of you...
who come here on a regular basis know that I'm not fond of the present occupant of the Oval Office.
I think that's evident through what I write about or publish from other sources in my posts. Since 2015, when Donald J Trump descended the escalator in Trump Tower to announce his run for the presidency, (and slandered an entire country) we've witnessed a less than mediocre and undisciplined mind advertise to the world his appalling stupidity, malignant narcissism, chronic mendacity, and lack of human decency in just about every communication with the public.
We've watched his close friends and aides get indicted for crimes; we've watched him humiliate anyone who dares to criticize him, correct his ignorance, or dare to point out his deceitful and deplorable behaviors.
None of that has dissuaded his cultists who continue to cling to their [desecrated] Bibles (now that he's signed then) and guns. Trump has bragged to the world and himself that he could kill someone in the middle of New York and his cultists would still support him. And he's correct. Trump's done just about everything sordid, criminal, and indecent, except murder someone, and his followers love him more each time he exposes himself to be a blight on our American politics and values.
But maybe that's the problem. Maybe we, as a culture, have no real values or core beliefs. How could we believe we are exceptional people when we have the most unexceptional con man representing us?
How many times have we read or heard people say that they thought the time Trump made fun of a disabled journalist would be the end of his foolish campaign for the presidency? Or the time he mocked John McCain, a POW? Or the time he insulted a Gold Star family? A female journalist? Embraced leaders of countries hostile to the US and denigrated the leaders of our allies? His thousands and thousands and thousands of documented lies? His degenerate personal life, where he not only cheated on all three wives, but also on his mistresses and illegally paid them off from ever telling about it? And that's only a partial list of the man's wretched, deplorable life.
His cultists care not a fig about any of it. They've said that God sometimes chooses a flawed man to carry out his work. Of course, those same cultists never said that about Bill Clinton, did they?
Have his cultists noticed the "work" they elected Trump to do is less than Godly? He's blown up the deficit with the tax cuts he gave billionaires. His budget now proposes deep cuts to Social Security and Medicare to pay for the largess he bestowed upon the 1%. The Wall is not built and Mexico will not pay for it even if he manages to get a partial one finished. Our trade deficits with China and other countries have exploded. Trump's brag that "trade wars are easy" was, Surprise! a lie. And something we should have expected from a lying, failed businessman, a businessman whose casino went bankrupt, FFS! And children in cages -- do his "Godly" cultists think about them at all? Ever? Trump stupidly and lyingly says Democrats are for late term abortions that allow fathers and mothers to take home their late-term aborted baby and kill it. Yes. He tells his cultists that and they believe it!
Why do I go over all this? Because even I am growing weary of the never-ending mendacity, criminality, lies, and chaos that Donald J. Trump spreads over our country every day like a demonic farmer fertilizing a field so he can sow more turmoil, bedlam, and deceit.
Today was just one more day of Trumpian willful ignorance. Take a look at this miserable stupidity from the leader of the free world. Apparently no one has ever told Trump to keep his moronic maw shut on matters he knows nothing about. Because no one ever dared explain to Trump that he's a blithering bampot, he's is smugly secure in what he knows nothing about and isn't ashamed to broadcast it:
Anf that's why hundreds of people on Twitter have suggested to Trump that he take a pipe full of carbon dioxide and inhale it to mercifully show the world what a brilliant scientific mind he has.
