Donald Trump was born three weeks before my day of birth. However, he and I are not the same age. I am 70 years old, but trump’s vile beliefs and his view of America is at least 130 years old. He is surrounding himself with the most backward thinking, old, white men in American history.
Rudy Giuliani is 72, but acts like he is 140. Newt Gingrich is 73, but he hopes to return our nation to the 1950’s. Jeff Sessions is 69, but is from Alabama, where the Civil War is still in progress; he is over 250 years old.
The perfect example of how out of touch the Trump administration will be with the majority was delivered by the nominee for Attorney General; Jeff Sessions.
The southern Republican says that he will attempt to destroy state’s rights by revoking the will of the people; he would outlaw the use of marijuana under any circumstances.
In April, Sessions said that :“we need grown-ups in charge in Washington to say marijuana is not the kind of thing that ought to be legalized, it ought not to be minimized, that it’s in fact a very real danger.” But he approves of racism.
Sessions reiterated the idiocy of Nancy Reagan’s lack of understanding regarding drug use in America.
“I think one of [Obama’s] great failures, it’s obvious to me, is his lax treatment in comments on marijuana,” Sessions said at the hearing. “It reverses 20 years almost of hostility to drugs that began really when Nancy Reagan started ‘Just Say No.’ ”
It is obvious that Sessions’ senility has forced him to forget that her ideas failed miserably, and drug use escalated under the Reagan Administration.
Advocates for legalization are, conversely, sounding the alarm. “Jeff Sessions is a drug war dinosaur, which is the last thing the nation needs now,” Ethan Nadelmann, of the Drug Policy Alliance, said in a statement. “Those who counted on Donald Trump’s reassurance that marijuana reforms ‘should be a state issue’ will be sorely disappointed.”
In 1986, Sessions was recorded as saying that the Ku Klux Klan was okay until “I found out they smoked pot,” according to the New York Times.
Sessions’ final comments about the use of marijuana revealed that he and the Trump administration live in the Stone Age, and are unfit to represent the majority of the American people. Sessions said that “good people don’t smoke marijuana.” Good people don’t come from Alabama, and seek a return to slavery.
This is what we can expect from the oldest president, and the oldest administration in American history.
Trump may have a token women in his cabinet, but she will only be a disgruntled woman who hopes that someone will grab her p***y.
