Opinions

Our #FakeHero president is an insult to our Founders

Trump is a #FakeHero. He strings along his supporters with promises he has no idea how to keep. Like many a would-be strongman before him, he defines himself politically by the fights he picks; he erects straw men — faceless “elites,” cable television hosts, Muslims, Mexicans, nonexistent individuals or groups waging an imaginary “war on Christmas” — because authoritarians always need enemies. Yet his ego is a delicate hothouse flower, threatened by the slightest puff of criticism.

Day One Promises vs. Reality

 

Who would have thought health care was so hard?

Who would have thought middle east peace was so hard?

Who would have thought solving North Korea was so hard?

Who would have thought building a wall was so hard?

It's clearly one of two things or both ... he was too much of a coward to declare he was dropping out of the Paris Accord before his trip to Europe and too much of a coward to say whether he believes in man-made climate change OR he is lying to the world.  I say it is both.

Trump has displayed incredible cowardice (or typical Trump behavior) in that he will not even answer a basic question posed to him by the America public - do you believe in climate change and is man partially responsible for it.

None of his surrogates would answer it either (fear of the boss, meaning Bannon) that is until Nikki Haley (women!) told Jake Tapper today that Trump does believe in it (or whatever else is written down on the paper in front of him).  So, what about all that BS about it being a Chinese hoax ("I'm hearing things, a lot of people are saying...") ?  The man is an utter buffoon (yes) who either doesn't know a bloody thing (Yes!) or cannot be caught out in his pathological lies (YES!!!).  Is he in hiding (golfing, naturally)?  And he's in charge of America (would some other country vote for that jackass?)?  My God (He gave up a while ago).  Sad (but true)!

Every Friday for the past few weeks there has been some new bombshell that has outdone the last.  How far away can we be from something completely damning?

With the Republicans in control of both houses of Congress?  A long, long, long way - maybe 8 years.

 

Remember, when Nixon was thretened with possible impeachment, the Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate.  The Republican leadership convinced him to resign to avoid the embarrassment they would have to endure and defending votes against impeachment and conviction.

I'm just a light-hearted guy who doan take himself too seriously, Arturo.
 
if someone who disagrees with me laughs at my posts, I'm happy. :)


I too am a light-hearted guy. But your buffoon of a president is too scary a proposition to cover up his truly scary recklessness with mirth.

You keep thinking it was about the last election. But there has been testimony that the Trump transition team had been warned about Flynn's contact with the Russians before Trump was sworn in. So as the leader of Trump's transition team, Pence had to know about this. So HE lied when he said that Flynn never had the conversations with the Russians, but was used as the excuse for firing Flynn, insofar as Flynn supposedly lied to him, when they could no longer continue the lie. But Pence knew all along. So he is part of the cover up story, and by extension, the obstruction of justice.

Can anyone spell Spiro Agnew?

 

 

I can spell it.

Thank you for your intelligent response. I see you choose not to furrow your brow to think about the true nature of Donnie and co.

That would make Satan's little boy Paul Ryan the next president.

Pence or Ryan--You be the judge.

Wouldn't vote for either one.  However, Pence does understand how politics and the government work.  Ryan is more amenable to compromise than many in the House.  In his own way, Ryan is opposed to the extremism of the House Freedom Caucus (what a misnomer).

I guess the question is:  Which is better, a competent, experienced very conservative president or the ding-bat we now have?

 

Also, if Pence were to go first, the Trump could nominate a new Veep to be approved by the Senate.  So Ryan would be out.

Horrible choices...but both preferable to that petulant manchild in his 70s.
