Trump will tell you that he is ‘a very smart guy.’ That’s just another of thousands of lies he has told since his illegitimate election. Through his own words and laughable tweets, he has proven to the American people that he is a very ignorant man who needs mental healthcare; (not available with Trumpcare).
If you failed to ask why Trump selected Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, you are not well-informed.
Scott Pruitt is the former attorney general of Oklahoma. He was owned by the petroleum industry and is the reason fracking wells cover the state and earthquakes have become a frequent occurrence. During his tenure, he filed multiple lawsuits against the EPA, the agency he now commands.
So why would Trump select a man who opposes the very agency he now leads? The answer is simple, and criminal. Trump and Pruitt both deny that climate change is caused by man and his use of fossil fuels. They deny it but that does not mean that they believe it is not fact. They are supporting millionaires and billionaires who are America’s biggest polluters. Profit before people.
When George W. Bush was president, thousands of jokes were made at his expense. They ridiculed his misuse of the English language, and ‘Bushisms’ became common day occurrences. Compared to Donald Trump, Bush now appears to be a ‘Mensa’ candidate.
The White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy no longer exists under Trump. It’s small staff of nine employees are now unemployed. Trump doesn’t believe in science.
Trump has started multiple wars within our nation. He is engaged in mortal conflict with the media, Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans, women, and the scientific community. Trump is choosing ignorance over fact. He prefers lies to the truth.
When I applied for two positions in my life, I was required to take a 52 question test; a psychological assessment. If this same requirement applied to the presidency, Trump would not be defiling the White House today.
I sincerely believe that the President of the United States is the most difficult job in the world; but not for Trump. He refuses to learn the responsibilities of his position. He prefers to spend his days watching cable television or playing golf. He lacks the intellectual capability to hold public office at any level.
America is having a huge nightmare; and it must end. Vote all Republicans out of office in 2018; take your country back.
Please re-post; thank you.
