… Crowds. It’s always about the size of his crowds. The “man” goes to El Paso, where a mass shooting has left some 22 people dead and many more injured, as a direct result of his own words. Protestors abound, for he was not welcome in El Paso after inciting the violence that has left the city in mourning. And what does he do? He comes away bragging that the size of his crowd was double the number of the protestors. How disrespectful, tacky, inconsiderate, and a bunch of other adjectives I could think of. This, folks, is the person that we have sitting in the Oval Office, the person whose decisions could lead to peace … or war. The person, in essence, who holds our very lives in his tiny hands.
This was not a day for politics, not a day to fuel the fires of division that are burning out of control in this nation. It was a day of mourning, of grieving for lost loved ones, and Donald Trump, who should have been the most remorseful, apologetic of all, turned it into another “politics as usual” day in both El Paso and Dayton.
I cannot recall another person holding the office of president who has so degraded and devalued the office. I cannot remember another who needed his own public relations team, working day and night, to go behind Trump and repair the damage he leaves in his wake. We have had presidents in my lifetime who I didn’t like very much, but never have I felt such loathing for not only the actions, but the “man” himself. Donald Trump is devoid of humanity, lacking a conscience, and has no love of this nation nor its people, but only loves himself.
The political posturing surrounding the question of whether to impeach or not to impeach must stop. We elected Senators and Representatives, we pay their salary, and in return we expect them to act in the best interest of the nation and its people. Congress has let us down mightily. Those members of Congress are so afraid of the “man” in the Oval Office that they refuse to act. They are afraid of his temper tantrums, his ignominious tweets, and most of all, they are afraid that he will speak against them at the next election. Screw the next election, people! There are fifteen months left until the election in 2020. Fifteen months in which this “man” is doing more damage to this nation, to our reputation, our alliances, and our very lives. GET HIM OUT!
Mitch McConnell and his band of scallywags have obstructed justice for long enough! They, along with Donald Trump, have the blood of the victims in El Paso on their hands, for they are in the pockets of the NRA and have long refused to pass any meaningful gun regulations. They are also responsible for the very election rigging that allowed Donald Trump to move into the White House and by refusing to even consider election security measures, they are rigging the 2020 election in Trump’s favour as well.
This nation cannot tolerate another 15 months of Donald Trump’s sheer cruelty and ignorance, let alone another 63 months, in the event of his re-election. I would call for a mass movement to demand that he step down, but we all know how far that would get. His ego will not allow him to step down, and frankly, I don’t think it will allow him to even admit defeat if he is voted out next year or reaches the end of his second term in 2024. He is, as our friend Keith has said, a clear and present danger. He is a danger to the very foundation of our government, he is a danger to every other nation on this planet, and he is a danger to the planet itself.
It matters not to me how he is removed from the Oval Office, but he must be removed. He cares not at all for the people of this country. I call on every member of Congress to support his removal, else frankly, you don’t deserve to be sitting on Capitol Hill, don’t deserve the salary that we are all working hard to give you. Either get with the program, do your job, uphold the Oath of Office you took, or get the hell out.
