What’s Not To Like?
Someone recently asked me why I, “don’t like,” Donald Trump. She seemed to be oblivious to any fault in him. As impossible as it may sound, many of his remaining supporters worship him in a very real way.
I won’t try to arrange these comments, I’ll just lay the cards on the table. But, Donald Trump is the most contemptible man I know anything about, so the list could have gone on forever.
He’s a pervert: Trump tells us that it’s okay to violently molest young women, fine to touch your own daughter in revolting ways. Partying with Jeffrey was good innocent fun. He advises young men to do the same as he does. And when they are caught, he attacks the women and girls.
He’s a thief: Trump has a heavily documented history of real estate swindles and tax cheating. (The “heavy” documentation comes from the work of hundreds of investigative reporters and private investigators, who examined thousands of pages of tax, and other financial documents, of the Trump family. The family was notorious, and gloried in their near-perfect record of thievery.)
He endangers “key assets”: He has put at risk some of the bravest and most resourceful men and women who ever lived. At any second he could speak without thinking again, and foolishly bring down our entire espionage network worldwide. HE MAY HAVE ALREADY!
Trump coddles petty tyrants and dictators, and would “pit” nation against nation, armed with nuclear weapons: In one of the most irresponsible acts in the field of diplomacy in history, Trump advised that Japan and North Korea increase their nuclear stockpiles (or create them) to create yet another nuclear stalemate: “That might be a good thing.”
Donald Trump is a liar: Every lie that Trump tells damages this country’s credibility worldwide. Sometimes he’s shrewd, but usually his lies are just plain stupid. It will undoubtedly take decades to recover our reputation; and that can only happen after we recover our integrity.
Trump has liberated white supremacists and the Klan: Since Charlottesville, we know unequivocally that Trump supports, and will do everything in his power to enable bigots and racists by honouring them with recognition and acceptance. He has single-handedly drawn them from the shadows. What a cowardly and shoddy way of gaining notoriety – harming people that you already keep in virtual servitude.
Trump is a thug and a bully. He insults, mocks, belittles; and now, damns and curses anyone who disagrees with his methods (prisons for children?). The farthest thing from an exemplary gentleman, and a great statesman and scholar – like Barrack Obama – he reminds you more of a schoolyard bully (a rather dull one), the kind that
He boasts of his own intelligence and IQ but never reveals it. He boasts of his business acumen, but keeps all of his financial dealings secret. He boasts of his diplomatic skills, but employs them from within a cloud of secrecy and disinformation, behind closed doors.
We may never know the truth about Donald Trump, but we know that he is not a President. Presidents serve their country. Trump scoffs at service. Presidents defend the Constitution; but Trump treats the “fundamental law of the land” with casual disregard, at best.
But, that’s a little too philosophical: We should never forget for a single second that Trump lives to steal!
