Editorial: So-Called ‘President’

The failing, so-called president*

I can’t even refer to him as the “president” anymore, without an asterisk. He’s just the “failing, so-called president*” to me. SAD!!!

trump, so-called president balloonThe evidence keeps mounting: that his loyalty is not to this country, but to those who have something compromising on him (Putin and the Russian Mob); that he’s a psychopathic narcissist whose only concern is his own enrichment; that he is violating the constitution and laws he swore to uphold (emoluments clause, witness tampering, impeding an investigation, etc, etc); and that he’s wholly incompetent — unfit for the office of president of the United States of America.

Besides all that, his character is not up to snuff for the position. He’s been sued over and over again for not paying people he’s contracted with; he ran a “university” (what a sick joke) that was simply a con on people seeking a better life, robbing them of their life savings; he admitted on national radio that he intentionally raided the dressing rooms of young women in his beauty pageants (some underage) to catch them naked; he’ll eventually be convicted of laundering money for the Russian mob; he hires the very worst people — “amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and unconnected felons” according to fellow Republican and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie — people who run U.S. agencies in a way completely counter to their intended purpose, and who end up getting run out of office for a variety of scandalous reasons.

This is a man who promised his base, which somehow still believes in him, that he would shake things up in Washington and “drain the swamp.” I understand the appeal, the frustration with government, but all so-called president Trump has done is stock that quagmire with some of the worst swamp creatures ever to work in any U.S. administration. The one-third of the country that is still buying into this slimy con job need to wake up, and realize that the sources of information they have put their trust in — Fox “News”, Limbaugh, Hannity, “Judge” Jeanine Pirro, the whole despicable, boot-licking lot of them — have been feeding them nonstop lies and nonsense for years, and it’s way past time they look for more reliable sources of news.

Yup, the whole sickening scenario is coming to light, and it’s, well… “SAD!” Sad indeed. It’s time for the Congress, both the House and the Senate, to do what’s right, and clean house — clean out the White House, that is — and put this terrible chapter behind us.
