The Shame of the Republican President
After being asked about Putin's comments bashing liberal democracy, our "stable genius" replied:
"If you look at what's happening in Los Angeles, San Francisco [cities] run by a group of liberal people..."
The Idiot-in-Chief doesn't know the difference between liberalism in the political theory sense and "liberal" in the American domestic politics sense. His cognitive sorting system is "good" or "bad." Once he hears "liberal" the system spits out "LIBERAL. BAD!" Artificial Intelligence could give a more thoughtful, informed answer.
Trump is too stupid and ignorant to understand that liberal democracy refers to the form of government we have in North America, Western Europe, and British Commonwealth countries. Putin asserted that our form of government based on individual liberties is obsolete and failing.
The Republican's moronic president, the "stable genius," has no idea of what "Liberal Democracy" means, and his Cultists voted the imbecile to lead and represent America.
What a colossal tragedy Trump is; and the entire world, except his Cultists, knows this.
For the TrumpCultists and those who regularly read my blog, here is the definition of "liberal democracy":
Liberal democracy is generally understood to be a system of government in which people consent to their rulers, and rulers, in turn, are constitutionally constrained to respect individual rights. However, widely divergent views exist regarding the meaning of consent and individual rights, of the particular forms of government that are best suited to the preservation of popular rule and the protection of rights, and of the types and effectiveness of constitutional constraints within particular forms of government. Nonetheless, liberal democracy is common throughout most of the developed world.
And here's "liberal," defined by President John F. Kennedy, as a domestic political doctrine:
“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.”
How does it feel, America, to have a so-called president not know the form of government he was selected by Russia to lead, a liberal representative democracy?
The only leaders who seem to admire Trump are murderous dictators: Putin and Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Trump also sucks up to Kim Jong Un, y'know, the guy he says he "fell in love with."
