I can no longer deny the truth. Trump, his failed party, and his supporters lack sufficient intelligence to be allowed to vote or even live in America. Trump is a con-man. This “wall” was not intended to be a real thing in 2014 when some of his campaign staff devised the idea to keep Trump’s focus on immigration. They underestimated his lack of mental competence, and he witlessly turned it into a campaign promise.
Today millions of Americans believe Trump’s lie that this would be the only effective manner of controlling our southern border; a border Trump lies about constantly. There is no crisis, and there is little danger of terrorists or hardcore criminals crossing into America from Mexico. Our virtually unprotected commercial airports are the greatest outside danger to America, while the greatest danger of all has become domestic, white terrorism. In addition, the DHS has proven that Trump’s ‘steel barricade can be cut with a saw.
Another moronic Trump supporter created a “GoFundMe page” for Trump. His ego desperately needs the construction of a medieval wall which would be completely ineffective and is unnecessary. This is the 21st century. The page failed miserably, and all donations are now being returned to ignorant Trump supporters.
The goal was one-billion dollars, and only $20 million was raised. Brian Kolfage initiated the site. He promised donors that every dollar would go to funding Trump’s “wall” if the one-billion-dollar amount was achieved. I guess that he didn’t check the statistics; 69 percent of all Americans oppose the wall.
Kolfage continues to be convinced that a wall is necessary but has admitted defeat in his efforts. He obviously admires Trump’s rash decisions and refusal to seek qualified advice from experienced men and women on any subject.
Finally, let’s discuss what Trump is and is not. He is not an American president; he is not intelligent; Trump is not a success in life and is a failure in government. Trump is not worthy of wearing the title of ‘President of the United States.’ He refuses to serve all Americans. So, what is this orange man? He is a façade, and the closest title he represents is “cult leader.”
Characteristics of cult followers include, but are not limited to: “a group displaying excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law. Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.”
It is obvious that Trump’s supporters ignore reality and refuse to seek the truth. They more than qualify as a cult. Cult members choose to be ignorant. Nothing else explains the stupidity of the men and women who accept all of his lies when they attend his hate rallies.
The truth is that the most ridiculous of Trump’s promises was always his “wall.” It was and remains unnecessary. The extreme exaggeration about the dangers from our southern border is laughable, unless you a blind and dumb; accepting Trump’s lies.
America can be saved. I have finally joined those who believe that Trump must be impeached. His criminal and Constitutional violations are numerous and demand his removal from what was once the most prestigious political office in the world. Save America and “lock him up.”
