world view? Beyond self-serving sycophants, will anyone seriously stand up and defend his comments on the American military? If there are such creatures, let them join him in his own self-made Hell. I can understand those who will blindly continue to support him because he makes their lives better by virtue of his economic policies, irrespective of the cost to millions, his lies and his narcissistic ego. For those identified by their racial bias that readily vote for him, I have little but contempt. But to call those who have given their lives or bodies on the battlefield in the name of service to their country suckers is impossible to accept by any standard or excuse. “Bone-spur” Donald proved that he was no “fool” by avoiding military service. “Tell me again, which foot was it?” Oh!, clever him.
What in the name of reason can we say of those who would elect to the most prestigious office in the world a man who does not even know the basic causes for U.S. entry into the Great War? I had thirty-two years of high school students, most of whom could have explained our entry into that war. How damn ignorant could Trump be? He is a man who depends upon his biases for his policies and his imagination for his facts. He has rarely met a circumstance he knows nothing about without offering his “opinion” on it.
He is a despicable and dangerous human being and needs to be summarily chased from the White House. The descendants of Buchanan, Fillmore, Andrew Johnson and even old Harding can breathe relief, for their forebearers are soon to rise a notch from the bottom of the heap. Trump will become the worst president in American history. Let us all hope and pray that he remains the standard bearer.
What worries me most are not the vulnerable and politically naïve Americans who constitute Donald’s “true believers.” No, it is the self-serving and politically astute who, knowing Trump for what he is, use their wealth and position to back him because they know how to employ their wits in a transactional world in order to support themselves at the expense of the American people: the real suckers! How many of Trump’s true-believers have utterly no idea how they are manipulated (branded), daily in mahogany board rooms? To the clever and self-serving corporate mind they are a reasonably managed political and economic resource; the cost of doing business; loose change . . . like parking tickets and the office coffee fund.
