Trump, Liar and Racist (2017Oct06)
We’re in a tight spot—Trump is a worse choice than a drunken sow—in fact, an intoxicated pig would do less harm. Yet the hypocrites in Congress are too corrupt to impeach a man who is clearly both incompetent and a ‘clear and present danger’ to the nation.
Friend of mine on FB posted: “The calm before the storm”?? WTF is our zany, dumbass game show host “President” (albeit, illegitimate) talking about?
And I replied:
“It’s easier to create suspense when there is no coherent thread from one day to the next. Trump can say anything vague—and it might refer to any one of the fifty messes he’s either made, or neglected,—or made inexcusably worse by his involvement. Since when is smirking and winking at the cameras the behavior of a president? But it’s like I always say—you can’t have a hate-filled pus-bag retain the Oval Office without a lot of shamelessly corrupt Congressmen neglecting to impeach him.”
So that’s where we start from today. And every day is a new start—though I do not mean that in a good way. Trump’s greatest strength is his ability to fracture our focus—to lightly leap from one shocking stupidity to the next, day after day. He is not burdened, as prior office-holders were, by any responsibility to be a sober, serious leader of the nation. His supporters did not elect him to be that—and he is taking them at their word.
But we mustn’t let the media sit around looking innocent—they are like-whores, ratings sluts, and shills for whatever big sponsor writes a check. Donald Trump has made the news-media rich—and they, in return, are helping him destroy America by covering him obsessively. When I want a daily report on the Tweetings of a senile psychotic who never outgrew his high-school bullying phase, I’ll ask for that very important reporting. Until then, Media, please stop legitimizing his clownish pretenses at leadership.
If our fucking president has something to say (that isn’t unwelcome ignorance, or a bald-faced lie) he can give a goddamned speech—in complete sentences—that speaks plainly. Not a fucking Nuremburg rally—not a call-and-response chant fest—not criticism of the first amendment—a speech—such as a grown man with practical ideas would give. I know it’s not fair to ask of Trump something he couldn’t possibly produce—all I’m saying is, “Trump, we’ve heard all your bullshit. You’ve made it clear you haven’t a functional brain cell in your melon. Could you pretty-please shut the fuck up?”
And I can say that—secure in the knowledge that Trump is too stupid to ever shut his big fat mouth. And crotchety old men may be amusing for a time—but a little mindless rage, suspicion, and egotism goes a long, long way. His supporters may be too stubborn ever to renounce him—but they can be relied on, as human beings, to get bored to death with him—sooner than later.
It’s funny—a person can be an intellectual giant, a talented success—at many things—at any things—and still be devoid of self-knowledge. A wealthy, well-educated guy can spend his whole life fighting to support some of the most transparently idiotic bullshit—and, as often as not, it is the wealth and cleverness that convinces him that he is right, despite anything anyone else can say to the contrary.
That is not to say that there aren’t plenty of just plain dumb-asses out and about in the world—but when the entitled are dead wrong, they are far less likely to get their faces rubbed in it, early and often, like regular joes would. If CEOs had any sense, they wouldn’t be more sure than anyone else—they’d be less sure—knowing that no one else is comfortable being honest with them.
Trump is a prime example of such morons (if I may quote the Secty-of-State). He mistakes the eagerness of those around him to keep their jobs, for agreement with whatever foolish nonsense spills out of his mouth. He’s cut corners and broken rules his whole life—and never gotten stuck with the consequences, like the rest of us would, and have.
How can he be expected to tell rational acts from criminal acts? No, once again we see, Trump is far more the fault of the trolls who egged him on and voted for him—he was patently reckless and amoral before the election. Yes, he ran for president—but even he didn’t expect America to be stupid enough to elect him.
