I decided that I needed to write a little more about Trump’s sad commencement speech at controversial ‘Liberty University’ yesterday. What can I say? It was not uplifting; Trump wouldn’t understand what that meant. It wasn’t inspiring; Trump only brings out the worst in people. But it was self-serving and braggadocio. He praised himself, while continuing to attack his millions of detractors.
“No one has ever achieved anything significant without a chorus of critics standing on the sidelines explaining why it can’t be done,” Trump said. “Nothing is easier or more pathetic than being a critic, because they’re people that can’t get the job done.”
Here’s what I think about that. Trump is a pathetic bully who has never accomplished a single thing in his life without bending the law, or ‘breaking the arms’ of his opponents. He cannot define the word “work,” and is not a shining example for any student body.
An intelligent businessman or politician hears his critics if their opposition is built upon facts. No one should easily change his or her mind based upon the opinions of others, but learning requires intelligence, and the ability to use the information and ideas of others to improve oneself. Trump mistakenly considers himself infallible. No one always right is as long as humans rule the planet, and admitting one’s mistakes requires maturity and an intelligent, clear thought process.
Trump’s greatest weakness is his ego. There is little doubt that his need to receive approval constantly is proof that he is mentally challenged. His tweets alone are a pitiful effort to defend his every action.
Because of his lack of mental acuity, he is a danger to our nation and the world.
It has become apparent to all clear thinking Americans that their president is a crook and a traitor. It is also evident that Trump believes that he can lie his way out of the situation. He is ignorant if he believes that being under intense scrutiny as the president is similar to investigations within the private sector. His indiscretion and crimes affect the Constitutionality of government actions, and harm the fiber of what makes America a respected nation.
Earlier today, I wrote and article; “A Note to the World: What it’s Like to have Trump as a President.” I believe I accurately described the man who is now defiling the White House, and why he will never have the respect of most Americans.
Trump may refer to us as ‘critics,’ but what we are actually providing the truth for all of the American people; the truth you will never hear from the television media which is more concerned with ratings than facts.
It seems fitting that Trump spoke at Liberty. Founded by racist and homophobe Jerry Falwell, it opposes the America of our founding fathers, and the teachings of Jesus Christ. And, like Trump, it has continuously supported its male students in reports of sexual assault. The women are blamed for the way they dress, or the way they act. White supremacy, homophobia, sexism, and other forms of bigotry are alive and condoned by many of our institutions of higher learning.
Trump felt right at home in Liberty.
