We’re Being Betrayed (2018Jun29)
Thousands of Puerto Ricans died after last year’s hurricane—due to racially-motivated neglect—and then, Trump lied about it.
Thousands of children were kidnapped and emotionally tortured (and are still being held) by Trump—and then, he lied about it.
I get that people knew Trump was a sexual predator, a fraud, and a liar—and voted for him anyway—fine. But those thousands are still dead forever. And those thousands of children are still traumatized for life.
So why is Congress still waiting on Mueller to begin impeachment proceedings? Even if Putin had never come up—there are more than enough reasons to impeach Trump, right now.
He has disgraced himself—and in so doing, disgraced this whole nation. By standing with him, the Republicans in Congress have equally disgracefully chosen partisanship that smacks of treason—and certainly of betrayal of those whom they purport to represent.
The benighted boobs who see a hero in our National Disgrace are a far larger, multi-generational disgrace—of zealotry, hypocrisy, and self-delusion—people who desperately grasp for pride and respect, without any matching drive to earn such—or deserve such. They shout out their ignorance, entitlement, and bigotry for months—then pounce on a raised voice from the ‘libertards’ (i.e., anyone who disagrees) as monstrous incivility. It is to laugh at. It is a disgrace.
But, no—it’s just business as usual. Trump isn’t even taking heat for the five dead journalists—again, pretending he never called the press an ‘enemy of the people’ nor incited people against the press. No, Trump is busy picking just the right ‘new’ Supreme—one who will keep misogyny and corporate greed alive—and all the rich white men go ‘doo do-doo doo doo do-doo-do-do-do…’
