Yesterday I wrote a post about Trump’s very undiplomatic, ignorant tweets in response to the terrorist attack in London over the weekend. I thought that was the end of it, that he would move on to other rants, but alas … I was wrong. This morning, apparently offended by the good Mayor Khan’s response that he was busy taking care of his city and did not have time to respond to Trump’s tweets, Trump’s very small thumbs once again took to the twitting machine and he said this:
“Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his ‘no reason to be alarmed’ statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!”
By ‘MSM’, he is referring to the mainstream media who accurately reported exactly what Mr. Khan did say, rather than the out-of-context falsehood that Trump claimed.
This must stop … it simply must stop! He is as an angry child who’s bluster and anger is escalating to the point that it is causing people all around the globe to lose what little respect they had left for the U.S. Trump represents us … each and every one of us, whether we voted for him or not, whether we like it or not. There is simply no excuse for a 70+ year old ‘man’, a leader of a nation of some 325 million people, to act as a 9-year-old child!
There must soon come an impeachment, or an Article 25 removal from office. There is no other choice. He has wrought more damage upon our country in less than 6 months than any other president has done in an entire term of office. Congress … specifically the House of Representatives … must realize by now that we are in deep trouble and take the first steps in the process to remove Trump quickly. While I have no love for Pence, at least his mouth has a filter.
Meanwhile … I recommend the following:
- The administration staff, cabinet members and members of Congress immediately stop enabling this ‘man’, stop licking his boots, and stop defending his words and actions, stop making excuses for him, for there can be no excuses for this irrational behaviour.
- Put a muzzle on him. Shut down his Twitter account!!! Take away his voice!
The Russian probe is almost certain, if carried out with integrity and transparency, to ultimately result in the removal of Trump from office, but that is a long process and will not happen quickly enough to save our country from a loss of respect worldwide. We all hope that our allies across the pond realize and understand that We The People do not share Trump’s sentiments, but unless we stand up loudly and passionately against him, against his behaviour, then how can they continue to believe that the citizens of the United States are good, caring people? How can good, caring people possibly remain silent in the wake of his abhorrent speech and behaviour?
It is time for us to stop shaking our heads, rolling our eyes, and grimacing every time he opens his mouth. It is time for us to demand that Congress take action to remove him from office. Use Article 25, if nothing else, for his actions of the past two weeks, shoving aside a foreign minister to be in the front row during a photo, berating our allies while cuddling with our antagonists, and now his rants against Mayor Khan, surely prove that he is unfit to govern.
For my part, I hereby proclaim in no uncertain terms that Donald Trump does NOT represent me and is in no way representative of my thoughts or ideology.
