Being the leader of the free world is a hard job. We all know that. No one can deny that a day or two off occasionally is both good and necessary.
But, most of us would also agree that there are limits. Spending half your time at one of your own resorts, especially on taxpayer dollars, seems a bit excessive. Personally, I do not like paying the salary of an incompetent, racist liar, especially when he spends over half his time vacationing at my expense.
Maybe the #BLOTUS should just retire before justice catches up to him. I do not know of any federal prisons with golf courses…or tanning beds.
“Whether by design, or simply inertia, the Republican wrecking ball has been following a two-level strategy. Trump keeps the spotlight on himself with one act after another, assuming (correctly) that yesterday’s antics will be swept aside by today’s. And at the same time, often beneath the radar, the “respectable” Republican establishment chips away at government programs that might be of benefit to the general population, but not to their constituency of extreme wealth and corporate power. They are systematically pursuing what Financial Times economic correspondent Martin Wolf calls “pluto-populism,” a doctrine that imposes “policies that benefit plutocrats, justified by populist rhetoric.””
This makes sense to me. It seems a fairly decent description of what’s happening at the moment. Anyone else agree? How do we stop it?
This quote from George Orwell’s 1984 seems eerily relevant today, doesn’t it? It has become ever more clear that power is the one thing, the only thing, that matters to the #BLOTUS and the Republicans in Congress.
If you need an example, which most thinking folks don’t at this point, just look at the complete Republican support of Roy Moore to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. Having another Republican vote in the Senate outweighs any question of improper or immoral behavior.
The many-times accused molester in the Offal Office has said that having a Republican like the accused child molester, Roy Moore, in the Senate is far preferable to having a Democrat, any Democrat, fill the seat. Moore not only has been accused by numerous women of involvement with them as young and underage girls, the man has twice been removed from his seat as Judge.
None of that matters. All that matters, the only thing that matters, is power, pure power.
No President in our history has lied as much, as often, as badly as this man. Now he is openly endorsing another sexual predator for the US Senate. There is seemingly no limits to his shame, and no end to the harm he is willing to do to get his way. His impeachment cannot come too soon.
The Republican Tax Bill is another gigantic lie. Our president is desperate for a political win, and the Republicans in Congress refuse to demonstrate they have the morals to do anything but pay off their mega donors.
Liar-in-Chief, #BLOTUS, the Lying King, whatever he is called, the truth is that the man in the Offal Office is a pathological liar unfit to to do anything but run with the hyenas. He is actually afraid of the truth, and flees from it like vampires flee from sunlight.
If he wasn’t so dangerous it would be funny. But, the reality is this man is a true threat to democracy. It’s time for all citizens to realize what he is doing to destroy the values we have long lifted up to the world.
You do not have to be Native American to realize the truth of Trump’s message. He is, after all, the “great communicator.” And nothing speaks louder than just watching him in action. He is the living definition of a racist pig…even if he does bray like a jackass.
