'To resist complacency, let’s take stock: the US has 100,000 children who are homeless; economic inequality exacerbated by Trump’s tax cuts and other policies, is staggering  Trump has made more than 13,400 false or misleading statements ( database ) a rate of 22 per day; he  denounced the press as the “enemy of the people,” A  Times investigation  shows that he  is wealthy partly because of fraud,  but he pledged to fight corruption and “drain the swamp.” Since then, he has lost more first-term cabinet members  to scandal than any president in history. He claim ed that climate change is a Chinese conspiracy. he: wanted to ban Muslims; diverted money to build a wall;  boasted about marching into women’s changing rooms to admire  undressed  teenagers . 'and he  wanted to buy Greenland! America’s dysfunction goes beyond Trump, and it will outlast Trump, even as it is aggravated by him.'

As a playwright and a teacher I cannot help but look at behavior to assess the character of the person.

I found that this piece (the British evaluation of our president) describes and reveals the observable reality:

" Trump lacks certain qualities: he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honor & no grace. Plus, we like a laugh. And while he may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing! His idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.And scarily, he doesn't just talk in crude, witless insults he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple algorithm of petty prejudices & knee-jerk nastiness. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless when they are down. And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully. That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead."

The irony of this headline is so far beyond sickening, I'll see if I can avoid puking long enough to finish this post.

Obama supported Al Qaeda in Syria and in Libya.

That's Treason.


That's supporting genocidal atrocities.


That's pushing liberal head-up-ass crowd to literally hand Al Qaeda "White Helmets" an Academy Award, Oscar TM, for their propaganda efforts.

Obama also supported Ukrainian Neo-Nazis. Mass murderers. He had Victoria Nuland hand-pick the Nazis to seize power after their militias firebombed Kiev for a month.

That's been normalized.

Ellen DeGeneres pals with George W. Bush, who murdered a million Iraqis and burned the UN Charter and the concept of International Law. Liberals continue to just love her!

That's been normalized.

You imperial apologists sicken me way more than Trump does. How did you manage that feat?
