He Didn’t Read The Job Description …

Apparently, when Donald Trump decided to run for president of this nation, he did not understand the job, nor did he bother to read the job description.  I would like to correct that oversight at this time.

The United States of America, a misnomer by today’s standards, is comprised of 50 states.  Each of the 50 are part and parcel of the nation, and no one state carries greater weight than another, except by merit of population size as regards number of representatives in the House.  The people who are elected to ‘lead’ this nation are elected and expected to lead all 50 states with equal fervour.

It matters not whether those people are black or white, whether they are Christian, Jew, Muslim or atheist, matters not one whit if they are straight or gay, nor whether they are democrat or republican … they ALL have the right to equal representation by the members of Congress and by the president.  EQUAL.  The president does not … I repeat … the president does NOT get to choose certain people to represent while leaving the bulk of the population out in the cold.  This is not how it works.

But this is how Donald Trump believes it works and he has concluded that he only needs to represent the people who agree with him on every issue.  Further, he has decided to represent only people who live in states whose governors agree with him and bow to his wishes.  Hmmmm … sounds more like a king than a president, doesn’t it … an evil king at that.

Now, for starters, consider that no matter what state you live in, your state has likely broke the piggy bank since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.  New York has had the most cases of any state in the nation – 288,045 cases, 22,269 deaths as of this writing.  Add to that the more than $3.1 billion they have paid out thus far in unemployment claims, and you can see why the state is asking the federal government for assistance.  Some 8.4 million people live in the State of New York.  And yet, because the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, is a democrat, Trump, along with Mitch McConnell has basically given all those 8.4 million people the middle finger.

“Why should the people and taxpayers of America be bailing out poorly run states (like Illinois, as example) and cities, in all cases Democrat run and managed, when most of the other states are not looking for bailout help? I am open to discussing anything, but just asking?”

Because, asshole, you swore an oath to protect the people of this country.  The people who live in California, New York, Illinois and every other state are your responsibility.  Oh wait … Trump doesn’t understand that word, ‘responsibility’, for it has more than four letters.  To deem that any state is less worthy than another in these circumstances is unconscionable!  And, for those who are Trump supporters, you may wish to consider that this affects YOU too!

But it gets even worse.  You will remember that Trump doesn’t like immigrants, right?  One of his first acts after taking office was trying to ban Middle Eastern immigrants coming to the U.S. from predominantly Muslim nations. Shortly thereafter he began his horrendous acts of abuse toward Latino immigrants at the southern border taking children from their parents, keeping them in cages, and as we now know, those children were often subjected to terrible conditions, including sexual abuse. immigrant childWell, turns out that Trump hates immigrants so much that he is punishing even citizens of this nation by withholding the stimulus checks of anybody who happens to be married to an immigrant!  A lawsuit has been filed against Trump, Mitch McConnell, and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin by a man in Illinois.  Unfortunately, given that Attorney General William Barr has said Trump is above the law, I’m not sure how far the suit will get unless … it is joined by many more in the same situation and made a class action suit.

There are hundreds of examples of Trump’s lack of understanding just what, exactly, is expected of the president, and these are only the two most recent ones to flit across my radar.  There will, no doubt, be at least two more tomorrow.  Oh, one last thing … if you received a stimulus payment, whether by direct deposit or a physical check (unless, of course, you are married to an immigrant), you will be receiving a letter from Donald Trump sometime soon.  He will be telling you how wonderful it was that he signed the bill into law that provided for those monies.  I shan’t tell you what to do with your letter, but I plan to send mine back, with three words written in large letters in red Sharpie:  F*ck You, Bastard!  And the postage cost of $0.45 will be the best half-dollar I’ve ever spent!

I almost forgot … two more things:  First, I have achieved a high honour … I was on Twitter a few nights ago and a friend had commented on a post by Trump’s son, Eric.  I, however, was not able to read Eric’s post, for he has blocked me!  I was so thrilled!  I must have hit a raw nerve somewhere along the line, though I cannot remember a single time I’ve responded to him, or even seen any of his posts.

The second thing is just a bit of humour that was sent to me by both Colette and Roger a few days ago … I think you’ll enjoy it!

  1. It has been noted by some reputable people that Trump does not read and what little he does read is beyond his comprehension…which is why things are edited then read to him because of his short attention span for anything other than himself. Okay, I said that…I do tend to be reputable in most areas! Trump is about Trump, what Trump wants is the only thing of relevance to this egotistical moron. Thank-you!

  3. I haven’t received a check…yet, but my son (a libertarian) has. If my son does receive a letter from our president, I would save it as a reminder of these dark, chaotic days when the people of Earth stayed home.

    Enjoyed the parody, “The Liar Tweets Tonight.” Humor triumphs over the crazy 🙂

    • Sigh. Yes, one could start a scrapbook and include that letter. We haven’t received the letter yet, and my fear is that I won’t be able to coral my anger and will rip it into a million shreds before I can send it back to him. I also liked Emily’s idea to burn it on Twitter, but … as I told her, I’d likely burn my bloomin’ house down! Yes, we need all the humour we can get these days!

  5. Thanks for sharing!!.. no matter the job description, Trump is going to be Trump, playing the role his way… no matter the circumstances he just barks out orders and expects the rest of the world to do it… 🙂

    • Sigh. You’re right, but … why is he allowed to behave this way, risking the lives of everyone in this nation, just to feed his own ego (and bank account, for Trump’s business received part of that stimulus package)? Do we no longer … it is time for us to accept that we no longer have a democratic republic, that we are now a full-blown authoritarian government? Sigh. The Asimov quote is perfectly fitting. Thanks, Dutch! Hope all is well in your corner of the world!

      • There are two reasons why Trump is still able to do what he does…1. this country uses a civilized method of dealing with Trump… granted it may not be perfect and it may be time consuming but I am sure you have witnessed the results in other countries that have tried other methods…
        2. again, there is a element of today’s society (mainly Republican conservatives and certain “faith” groups), thinking only of themselves, who know that all they have to do is fuel Trump’s ego and he will give them (or at least attempt to) whatever they want so they will keep him in place as long as they can…
        That being said, concentrating on Trump makes him the center of attention which he thrives on, he will never change.. in order to make change, while not turning a blind eye to Trump, one needs to concentrate on the home base and the people.. to work with people, get the message out that change is not doom and gloom.. Keep in mind Trump won on a technicality, the majority of the people did not vote for Trump and the Republicans are trying to make changes at the “home base” in their favor… patience, understanding and determination are the key words here… 🙂

  6. Jill, good post. A couple of comments. No one in the White House or US Congress, and I mean no one, should chastise states for poor fiscal stewardship. I said it then and will repeat it now – the Dec 2017 tax law which will increase the debt by $1.5 trillion through 2027 was beyond poor stewardship – it was malfeasance. The biggest hypocrites are members of the Freedom Caucus who got elected after complaining about the debt when it was $8 and $13 trillion, did not say word one voting to increase it when it was $21 trillion. By the way, it is appropriate Freedom Caucus leader Mark Meadows is Trump’s new Chief of Staff. Keith

    • I shudder to think how the budget deficit would explode after 4 more years of Trump. 30, 40, 50 Trillion? Due to his incompetence and gross mishandling of the pandemic, 8 Trillion has been added to the overall deficit over 10 years, mostly for corp bailouts which they don’t even need. Seems like an election payoff scheme.

    • Thanks Keith! Your points are certainly valid … funny how the Republicans screamed for a balanced budget, and now that they have an opportunity to do something about it, they went the opposite direction. What happened to those fiscally conservative minds? Oh, I guess they just meant they didn’t want to help the working people or the poor, not that they would be averse to helping the wealthy. There is so much hypocrisy in our government today that I cannot even keep up.

    • I dunno … Trump has stated that he hasn’t read the Constitution … it’s only 8,000 words, about 6-8 or my blog posts worth … and it’s been said by those who were in his administration in the early days that they tried to hold sessions where they would teach him how our government works, but after just a few minutes he would get bored and start playing on Twitter on his phone. Sigh. We have a moron in charge, but a crafty, cruel, evil moron who has bought and paid for enough sycophants to ensure that any democratic principles will be burned to the ground. Sigh.

  7. I see Trump’s starting early giving his followers the information that big cities– all Democrat run are in trouble and asking for help. Untrue but why bother checking after The Voice has spoken.Perhaps they need reminding who takes more out of the pot than put in, and who takes less out of the pot than puts in. Guess which party that would be
    Cwtch.

  8. I can’t sing, but check out my new theme song for Trump and the GOP on Brendan’s blog that you reposted today. It can be improved upon, but I thought it was ok for a start. Feel free.

      • Darn, I thought that was where I put it. My memory is really failing me. I’m pretty sure it was on a reblog you did. Maybe it was on one of those suggested reading posts at the bottom of a reblog. Heeeellllllppppppp!
        Anyways, I rewrote the words to the Mickey Mouse Club Theme Song.
        All I can remember today is:
        D-O-N A-L-D T-R-U-M-P
        Donald Trump (Mickey Mouse)
        Donald Trump (Mickey Mouse)
        Forever we’ll believe all his lies
        (Lies! Lies! Lies!)

        I made a slight change to the original. The song is to be sung by Repuglycans, but the (Chorus) is to be sung by Democrats.
        Now, where did I put it…?
