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 loses their nerve if you challenge them.

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!

Air Force brat. My dad was shepherd to a bunch of B-52's; the GI's called that place "20 Minutes From Armageddon;" because a missile launched in East Germany would pop over our heads twenty minutes later. That put me in some of the best schools anywhere. I wrote in the Press Office of a powerful, charismatic Midwestern Governor. I dabble in graphic arts. My 50+ entertainment sites get a few million visits, and I have stopped counting the fans, likes, and shares, per year. I've rambled the world, hitched around the continent (counter-clockwise). Climbed a couple of teeners, been to a couple of thousand rock, blues, and jazz concerts. I was at a free concert on Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, CA with about 350,000 freaks and hippies; and other festivals. I won a writing contest when I was six. It was a Poe-like horror story taken from an account of a mining disaster. I had already been reading Edgar Allan Poe (which may explain a lot). I could read before I could talk. I implemented some of the first client/server, TCP-IP networks (the Internet) at many of the world's largest corporations. I know a half-dozen programming languages, and have implemented and administered many network operating systems. Right now I build ebikes, and lithium batteries from scratch. I was taught that race and ethnicity don't set us apart. I think that the best thing that could happen in this country would be if a woman were to be elected President of the United States. I admire President Obama more than any man in history, save one.

And yet, he remain the holder of the Oval Office, the defier of Congressional initiatives, the packer of courts……who will rid us of this Loathsome Dictator?

🎶Where have you gone, John Hinckley
A nation turns its lonely eyes to you
Woo, woo, woo
What’s that you say, MurphtheSurf
Shooter John has left and gone away
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey 🎶


Trump is not a president, but he plays one on tv. I still put the blame for that on the electorate. For whatever reason(s), trump was “elected” president, MAYBE. From my perspective that says more about the electorate than it says about trump. Charlatans and demagogues are a dime a dozen, but there is something seriously wrong with an electorate that would make one the leader of a free nation. To me, the American electorate is far scarier than trump is.

Bravo! That should be an editorial in all the top US newspapers. Yes, that list could go on forever and I need to add his refusal to do anything about mass shootings and his inhumane treatment to animals. Its sickening. He eliminated all the animal welfare regulations, is now importing elephant trophies and literally pushing wildlife to the brink of extinction. That issue alone could go on and on. There’s something not right upstairs.

Lastly, he needs to MHOB with Iran and Saudi Arabia. The Saudis can defend themselves.
