Despite his lies, deceit, and cruelty they turned out to re-elect the naked emperor
Donald Trump is not the brightest bulb in the shed, far from it.…. but he is not that dumb to believe that he won the election that he lost handily. Donald Trump holds the belief that somehow he was wronged in 2016 when the Democrats questioned his win. In fact, Donald Trump believes that the past four years has been one continuous question mark against his presidency.
In brief, that is exactly why he decided to cast doubt on the Biden win, and he will continue to smear the presidency of Joe Biden with every bit of energy in his body.
Donald Trump is a small man in a big man’s body; in his small mind, he believes his actions after the elections was his way of getting back at the Democrats.
The jury s still out, and will still be out, on what harm Trump’s actions will have on the nation going forward.
But how were the Democrats supposed to act when thirteen Intelligence Agencies said that the Russians interfered in the elections on Trump’s behalf, and Donald Trump said he didn’t believe them.
How were people supposed to feel after the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak was in the oval office with Trump, and only Russian media right after he took office and fired Jim Comey, the FBI Director?
Not only was Trump hamming it up with the Russians, but he also berated the former FBI Director to them. It was a shocking display of unpatriotism to the average observer; here was an American president berating his own countryman, a previously highly placed public servant to foreigners.
I shed no tears for Jim Comey; for all, we know Comey may have helped to give us Donald Trump when he decided to reopen investigations in October of 2016 in Hillary Clinton’s e‑mails.
James Comey reopened an investigation and made damaging public statements after he concluded that there was no evidence of criminal wrongdoing by the former Secretary, in the fraudulent e‑mail scandal dredged up by Jim Jordon of Ohio and Trey Goudy of South Carolina.
James Comey should have made no statements against Hillary Clinton. If he had no evidence to prosecute her on, he had no right to make comments against her. His actions were prejudicial and extremely harmful to Secretary Clinton and her campaign.
James Comey vastly overstepped his bound, and he should never be entrusted with any government position ever again.
Since he took office, Donald Trump’s actions have been nothing, if not deferential and almost servile to the interest of Russia and Vladimir Putin, Russia’s despotic totalitarian leader. He left the Paris climate accord, disrespected Nato leaders, but praised Putin, Duterte, Erdogan, Kim Jung Un, and other despots.
Most shockingly, Donald Trump says he sees no reason why Russia would interfere in the 2016 election. His comments came during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
Donald Trump’s decision to seek to dig up dirt on then the still undeclared presidential candidate Joe Biden in Ukraine got him impeached; the irony in that is that not only did it get him impeached, but it also drew Biden into the fray, and Biden beat his ass by a wide margin on November 3rd.
More than the damage Trump’s actions have had on him; personally, his actions jeopardized America’s strategic long-term interest in Ukraine when he decided to withhold desperately needed military aid that was needed to keep an aggressive Russian leader and his military at bay.
The average American may never know the full extent of Donald Trump’s treachery against the United States, but I believe that the intelligence services are well aware of his actions.
For those reasons, Trump’s vindictive [little stunt] in holding up the Biden transition and seeking to cast doubt on the elections’ validity is to be condemned.
Donald Trump never cared about the country; to him, the country was only as good as long as he could milk it for whatever he could. The jury is still out on whether he really wanted to be president, but once he won, and tasted real power, he was smitten. He did not care enough about America if it meant that he would not be allowed to disregard the democratic norms that have existed for over two and a half centuries by remaining in office.
If he cannot stay in office, he will burn the whole damn thing down.
The sad reality is that 73 million people were willing to suspend reality and pretend that the naked king was fully clothed in imaginary finery.
Despite all his lies and extreme cruelty they ignored them and pretended not to care. White so-called evangelicals see this grifter as the second coming of Jesus Christ; some even said their God sent him.
A lying grifter who cheated on his wife with a prostitute, while his wife was at home having just given birth, a man who bragged about violating the privacy rights of young and vulnerable women in his pageants.
A degenerate who bragged about grabbing women by their genitalia, locked children in jails, celebrates white supremacists, is willing to veto a defense spending bill, because it has in it, language that would remove confederate general’s names from US military bases, castigates black women as low IQ, and labels black men sons of bitches.
Donald Trump is the pain from the disease that eats away at the underbelly of America. He was at least smart enough to realize that there was a vein of hatred, resentment, and grievance on which to run. He knew that if he lied about his wealth, there were enough racist whites who would believe him; why not? They believed they were superior to the enslaved black people during slavery, even though they themselves were enslaved, albeit under a different designation (bondsmen).
He knew if he said he was against abortions, he would get the sanctimonious hypocrites who call themselves evangelicals. Their only concern in life is to stop babies from being aborted, but God forbid that the mother asks for some food to feed the rapist’s baby she is forced to bring to term, and all of a sudden, that’s a bridge too far.
Trump knew enough about their hatred for Blacks, so all he had to do was play up his white supremacist bona fides and he would have a cult following. Sure, Trump is a despicable racist, but his brazen play at white supremacy is designed to solidify and hold the ignorant racist evangelical right-wing nutters that gravitate to him.
Despite everything, he did over the last four years, rather than step back from his lies, cruelty, and deceit, they turned out in even larger numbers and tried to re-elect the buffoon of a naked emperor.
