A Note to the World: What it’s Like to have Trump for a President

Most of the world’s developed nations have intelligent and competent leaders. The United States can make that claim for most of our 240 years, but there have been times when the American people struggled through terms of presidents who were simply incapable of performing their jobs effectively.

The November election forced the American people to face a historical change.

Having Trump as our president is like having that dirty old man who lives on your street, and masturbates as your thirteen-year-old daughter walks by his house on her way to school. It’s like when you were a kid, and you all decided to play a board game. There was always one boy who not only cheated, he lied about it, and expected you to accept his “alternative facts.” It’s like being a member of a baseball team, and the right fielder, who never caught a ball or got a base hit, taking all of the credit for a win. It’s like attending a child’s birthday party, and when the pinata is broken, he pushes everyone else out of the way as he tries to take all of the candy for himself. It’s like when you played a game of ‘kickball’ on the schoolyard, and the bully made up the rules as the game developed. This is what it’s like to have Trump defiling our nation’s most famous residence.

Today Trump is blaming everyone in the White House for the constant failures of his administration; everyone with the exception of himself. The word is that Trump is displeased with Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus, counsel Don McGahn, and Sean Spicer; among others. He is also disappointed with several of his cabinet members. Less than four months into office and he is finally realizing that he made poor choices for his circle of sinners.

Trump will never admit the truth; that the situation is his own doing. He chose unwisely, and obviously failed to properly vet his nominees, but you’ll never hear Trump admit that he made a mistake.

This is what we’re dealing with in America. As a nation, we moved from having a great President who was respected by all developed nations, and now we have a buffoon, a schoolyard bully, a white supremacist who is hated around the world, and a dirty old man who is incapable of governing effectively.

I will also admit to the world that we have a crook as our illegitimate president. His crimes in his personal life have continued into his public life. He is guilty of multiple ethics violations, as well as acts of treason. He continues to control his foreign business interests in at least 12 nations. He not only conspired with Russia to win an election, he has also aided Russian oligarchs in their efforts to launder their fortunes through the purchase of American real estate.

I apologize for the millions of uninformed American people who made the biggest mistake of their lives by electing the most unqualified and immoral man in our nation as its leader. But consider what the majority of our people are going through.

America is the most diverse nation in the world, but Trump only represents the one percent. Although he promised his supporters that he would repeal Obamacare and replace it with a better and more affordable healthcare system, the only thing Trumpcare offers are additional tax cuts for himself and the other 584 billionaires in our nation. While you offer your citizens the best healthcare in the world, more than 24 million of our people will be unable to obtain care when they need it, and the 131 million who have preexisting conditions will likely be unable to afford it, if it is offered to them by their state.

Before our nation was forced to face a Trump regime, polls revealed that we are way down the list of nations with the best quality of life for the majority of a nation’s people. I wonder where we will be after one-year of Trump’s illegitimate presidency.

The world has a reason to be frightened.
