Donald Trump Will Destroy the Republican Party
When the White House sent Sarah Huckabee Sanders out to the lectern to field questions the day after Donald Trump fired the FBI Director (5-9-2017), we saw a combative B team player who really isn’t ready for prime time. Sorry, but even though she is the DNA offspring of deep southern conservatives, Mike Huckabee and Janet McCain (no relation), we blame the President for not having the guts to come out to the press and take questions himself. He is mostly chicken-shit when confronted.
Sarah, the word Atrocity means an extremely wicked or cruel act, typically involving physical violence or injury. When you claim James Comey was guilty of atrocities you moved him into the same level as Bashar al-Assad, Saddam Husain or, wait for it, Vladimir Putin. You owe the guy an apology for your horrible word use and lack of comprehension.
As the Republican opportunists and sordid politicians line up to try to get behind the President on his obvious move to thwart investigations, there is a flaw here beyond repair for the Republican party. Poor Sarah could not have expected that the day she was to fill in for her co-worker busy with Naval Reserve duty she would make things worse. If she is the future of the party, then you might as well bring her father back.
The thinking Republicans, not Paul Ryan, who are asking the good questions will be able to say they stood up and challenged the Liar-in-Chief when he tried to shut down investigations into Michael Flynn. The Democrats are not without sin on this one. After all you can’t call for Comey’s head and then, when Agent Orange delivers said head, pull out the word, “Watergate.”
The debate will go on for a few days as to whether this is worse than Watergate, or perhaps Watergate Lite, or maybe nothing at all; but from this vantage point we make our case that Donald J. Trump has always been the wrong person to lead America. If this leads to impeachment historians can say this was just like Watergate.
This is only the tip of the iceberg, which Donald Trump is trying to meld with his executive orders and lack of judgement on almost every issue he faces. The most astonishing aspect was the administrations lack of awareness of how this would be interpreted. If you just worked this through a logic process you would say, boy that is how they got Nixon.
Trump hijacked the Republican Party, and they let him. He hijacked the Presidency and millions of people helped him. BUT, he cannot hijack the structure of America. He cannot stop the truth from coming out, much to his frustration. He wants Mommy and Daddy to back up every one of his lies. And when someone keeps saying that he lies, they are added to his enemies list.
Richard Nixon was an ideologue, with an enemies list, who was the last to see that the country was changing. He was a scotch-drinking Quaker who was so out of touch with reality he listened only to those around him. Donald Trump may not drink alcohol but he is clearly addicted to fame. He needs to have his ego massaged everyday by those around him. This makes him dangerously manipulatable.
The RNC may be all happy that they control the Senate, the House and the White House, but are they really in control of anything? In 2018, when healthcare is costing more and hurting real people, those seats will go away and the cycle will continue. Sadly, when the Democrats regain a majority, the atrocities of American politics will kick in. That’s when nothing gets done.
What Donald Trump has brought to the surface is the many cracks in the Republican party and those who claim the country is better off with an elephant in the room. With hearings on TV so often, we get to see those ridiculous GOP ideologues like Ted Cruz who wastes hearing time with questions designed just to put down Democrats rather than to find out what is really going on. Cruz might think he is smart and impressive, but he comes off like the guy at the party who only wants to talk about what he thinks is important. Save us.
The exposure of public hearings puts on trial the lacing depth of many of those on important committees. It also showcases that the Dems are not all tree-hugging, left-winged whackos as Fox News paints them. They are generally well prepared and ask good questions. Whether you like Al Franken or not, he does have a way of getting people to .
My advice to everyone in America, keep your eyes open. Remember what you said about Obama, well double it with Trump. Are you better off yet? Are you winning? Did you get a raise? How much did they charge for that medicine today? The Republican party owns healthcare and they own Trump, poor babies.
