There has never been a presidential press conference like today in the history of the United States. Everyone is still trying to figure out the purpose. Trump continued to attack any news service which wasn’t FOX Noise, announced a new nominee for Secretary of Labor, and then entered into a long session of bragging about himself which consisted mostly of lies.
Among his many lies, including his claim that he had created thousands of new jobs, were an embarrassment for Trump and his hypocritical Republican cronies. Most of those jobs had been in the planning for months.
Ever the egomaniac, Trump had to lie about his victory in the election and his approval ratings.
He claimed that he had the largest electoral college victory since Ronald Reagan. Sorry “Donnie,” but facts are facts, even if you disapprove of them. Barrack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George H.W. Bush outdistanced your win by a large margin.
As for his approval ratings, no president has received such a low approval rating in his first month in office. Trump stands at 41 percent in favor, and 54 percent disapprove.
If he didn’t have assistance from Putin, Comey, and the television media, how in the hell did this clown win. Trump is unfit to sell newspapers on a street corner. He has no knowledge, no qualifications to hold the office of county clerk, and definitely not the president.
For years I wrote about George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. I called that administration the worst in American history, and until now it was.
Cheney remains the most evil man in our nation’s history; he intentionally harmed our nation’s people and violated the Constitution. Bush was simply not intelligent enough to lead the free world, but next to Trump he looks like a member of Mensa.
The sad truth is that Republicans in congress don’t care about the future of our nation. They are fighting an independent investigation into Trump’s long association with Vladimir Putin. The truth is that we do not need an investigation; the truth has been proven by our own press and the foreign press. Trump’s staff has been in contact with Russia on nearly a daily basis since 2015.
If Republicans refuse to remove Trump from office, it’s up to us. We are the nation, and we must have a president who is qualified and has concerns for the future of 320 million real Americans. We do not need a man whose weak temperament and his penchant for revenge prove that he suffers from paranoia.
“Fire the Fool;” and do it before April 1st.
