President-elect Donald Trump’s dedicated, but delusional, supporters decry protestors who say, “He is not our President,” claiming that the man who gets the most electoral votes must be considered as “the President” by all of us.
Like hell he is. Donald Trump should go down in history as the greatest political con-man of all times, a flamboyant salesman who lied, cheated and connived his way to getting the Presidency but, from where I stand, is not, will not, and never will be “my President.”
I cannot accept, endorse or support a racist, bigot, misogynist, sexual predator and liar as the leader of my country. I didn’t vote for him. Most Americans who voted did not vote for him. His election came about because of a flawed political system that allows someone with less than 50 percent of the popular vote to win the Presidency.
Trump is a fluke, a dangerous one at that, and a prime example of a political system that is out of control and in need of serious reform.
Trump is in the midst of assembling a radical right wing team of other rich blow-hards with questionable credentials and muddled pasts.
His appointed national security advisor, retired General Michael Flynn, is a hard-ass nut who buys into discredited conspiracy theories and contributed to the right-wing fruitcake who showed up last weekend at a family pizza restaurant in Northwester Washington, DC, with his assault-style AR-15, a shotgun, a handgun and knife to “save children” from a claimed child pornography that existed in the warped mind of often-discredited radio flim-flam man Alex Jones.
Flynn and his son promoted claims that Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was part of that fantasy child-porn ring that never existed.
Trump also wants another ex-general, James Mattis, to be Secretary of Defense, a role intended by law to be a civilian, and who brags about “it’s fun to shoot some people.” The President-elect’s “strategic counselor” is alt-right extremist Stephen Bannon, editor and CEO of fake news operation Breitbart news.
During the Presidential campaign, Trump called Clinton “Crooked Hillary” and threatened to throw her in jail is he became President, saying she endangered national secrets by her use of a private email server as Secretary of State.
Now one of his top candidates for the job as his Secretary of State is former CIA Director David Petraeus, who lost his job as the nation’s top spy and was convicted for letting his lover see secret documents. By the way, he was married while letting his other woman share national secrets and his bed.
Trump, somehow, convinced too many Americans that are down on their luck and feeling unappreciated and not represented that he is “one of them.” He’s was a pampered child of a rich real estate developer who attended private schools, used his daddy’s money and power to avoid the draft during the Vietnam war and muddled his way through top universities with lackluster performances. He has turned to other rich folks raised in such surroundings to other cabinet positions.
He promised to “drain the swamp” in Washington. Instead, he turned to those who would make it more toxic and putrid.
Donald Trump as “my President?” No way.
Trump bragged on audio tape that he liked to sexually assault women when he would “grab their pussies” and routinely walked in on nude underage girls in the dressing rooms of Miss Teen pageants because “I own the pageant and can do what I want.”
He is a thrice-married, serial adulterer who bragged on the Howard Stern radio show about bedding multiple women while married, and agreed with Stern when he called his daughter a “piece of ass.” Trump is still under an open charge of raping an underage model.
Leader of my country? Like hell he is.
Trump calls his political opponents “crooks” and “liars” and “losers,” all terms better applied to the man who claims he can “make America great again.”
He may make America many things but the only thing it will make America is a laughing stock to anyone with an IQ above that of the average plant.
In our view, Donald Trump is not “our President.”
He’s an enemy of the state and must be treated as such.
