If you are of average intelligence, you have found yourself shaking your head many times over the last several years when Trump does or says something so stupid, you can’t believe it came from a grown-up. The truth is that Trump’s brain has either never matured, or his senility is becoming a more serious problem.
This story will demonstrate why Trump is completely unfit to remain in office, and should have been removed by his party as early as March of 2017 with the invocation of article 25.
Let’s begin with the most recent example. Last Monday the number of new cases of Covid-19 were increasing rapidly. Trump’s poll numbers were continuing to plummet, and the entire Trump Party is “sweating bullets” about their chances for reelection. What did Trump do? He tweeted about something which has no relevance to what is happening in our country today.
“Has Bubba Wallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX? That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER.”
Read every line and you will find at least one blatant lie.
Now let’s return to January of this year. Trump had been warned of a possible health crisis late in 2019. In January of 2020 the coronavirus began to threaten thousands of lives in China, and was spreading to other nations. Trump was busy. He had hate rallies to hold, and golf balls to abuse, he couldn’t be bothered with a probable pandemic coming to America. He told the American people that “it will go away,” and “it won’t harm America as greatly as it will other countries. We are very prepared.”
Playtime was his priority. He proved once again that he does not want to be the president for all Americans.
Move forward to the murder by cop of George Floyd on May 25th. As protests began across our nation, and spread to other nations, Trump called the marchers “thugs and criminals.” To this day he has failed to address the reason for national unrest. Law enforcement across America has a serious problem with pervasive racism. Black Americans have suffered from social injustice within our shores since 1619. The term is “white supremacist.” Trump wears it well.
When the protesters began to topple statues of the treasonous white nationalists who attempted to destroy the Union from 1861 to 1865, Trump now had a fight he cared about. How dare these “fascists” destroy monuments to the men he most respected in American history. The final incident happened when these men and women, who were exercising the first amendment rights in front of the White House, attempted to topple a monument honoring Andrew Jackson, the second most racist president in history.
Donny Boy made another rash and fascist decision to act in the most anti-American manner of any president in history. He gathered a makeshift gestapo composed of U.S. military personnel and police and marched from the White House to St. John’s Episcopal Church. As they walked, his gestapo fired rubber bullets at the protesters and exploded teargas canisters. The end result: a photo op of Trump holding a bible which may or may not have been burning from his touch.
One final lie from Trump in a feeble attempt to protect his incompetence.
Trump was informed in March of 2019 that the CIA had uncovered a plot by Russian agents which offered a bounty to the Taliban for every American soldier murdered in Afghanistan. He either refused to read the President’s Daily Brief, or ignored a possible “declaration of war” from Russia. The story was discovered by the New York Times and CNN in February. Trump is denying that there is any truth in the story, although the evidence is irrefutable. He is more concerned with offending Vladimir Putin than protecting the lives of our nation’s military.
There are many more examples of Trump’s failures, but this article would become a small book.
Dump Trump. He is the worst thing to happen to our nation in its 244 years.
