Trump’s Sour, Off-Key Singing
I saw a meme the other day that outlined some of the things Donald John Trump promised America that never happened. He told us Mexico would pay for the wall. Instead, trusting citizens paid the Steve “Bannon Bandits” who then stole the money to remodel their homes and buy big cars. He told us that everyone would have healthcare insurance, but he has done nothing to enact an improved version of Obamacare. He says that in “two-weeks” he will roll out a healthcare plan that will be strong and protect those with preexisting conditions, yet every healthcare action of this administration has weakened what we had.
Trump claimed that US Steel was going to open six new plants. That never happened. He told us that North Korea was NO LONGER a nuclear threat. They have become stronger. He touted the coal industry (LOL) and said his deregulation would bring back mining jobs. Another failure.
He bragged how easy it is to win a tariff war, yet he is completely ignorant of the reality. Suppliers pay the tariffs when the products hit our shores and then they pass along the cost to us, the consumers. His actions against China killed the domestic soybean farmers’ market. Who is actually winning?
The Donald stood before us and said he would eliminate the national debt in his first term. In fact, Donald Trump will add $4.832 trillion to the debt in fiscal year 2021. That’s a 24% increase from the $20.245 trillion debt in Obama’s final budget.
Trump repeatedly told us he couldn’t release his tax returns because he was under an IRS audit. There, another lie. He also told us that, if we elected him, he would release his tax returns like every other president has done over the past forty years. He lied again. If you are breathing and alive, you certainly realize our 45th President is a game playing liar.
We learned yesterday that Steve Bannon, former Trump campaign strategist and White House advisor, was arrested for fraud regarding his actions with the nonprofit organization We Build the Wall. A federal grand jury in New York indicted Bannon on charges of money laundering and wire fraud, alleging he and his partners diverted a million dollars from the group. It is alleged that Bannon spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on his personal expenses. So, how did Trump react?
When asked about the charge, Donald Trump said, “It’s a very sad thing by Mr. Bannon… I didn’t like that project. I thought it was a project being done for showboating reasons. I didn’t want a wall that was going to be an inferior wall. It was something I very much felt was inappropriate to be doing.” First, why is everything surrounding Trump so “sad?” Is this President chronically depressed? If Trump is so perceptive and powerful why didn’t he tell the group to STOP IT? Sitting next to Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi, the leader of a country he has accused of corruption for years, Trump used the term “showboating” three times in his adlibbed response. Embarrassing!
According to the El Paso Times newspaper, Donald Trump Jr. was a special guest last year at an event hosted by the We Build the Wall group fronted by its CEO, Steve Bannon. Don Jr. praised the group as “private enterprise at its finest.” He went on to say, “This is what capitalism is all about. What you guys are doing is amazing.” Wow, so the old man thought it was a bad idea but didn’t tell his son not to endorse the bloody project? Fake apple falls from fake tree.
Many of the things that Trump does are obviously deceitful and blatantly ignorant. For example, when a former employee gets caught in a criminal, unethical or immoral situation Trump claims, “I hardly knew that guy.” Really? He told us that George Papadopoulos, the man who triggered the Russian investigation, was just a coffee boy. The very next day, we learned about a high-level campaign meeting with Trump and Mr. Papadopoulos sitting at the same table. See, he lies.
This morning, a story broke on the website THE HILL stating, “President Trump said he plans to send law enforcement and U.S. attorneys to the polls in November to prevent voter fraud. ‘We’re going to have sheriffs, and we’re going to have law enforcement. And we’re going to have hopefully U.S. attorneys, and we’re going to have everybody and attorney generals.’”
Perhaps the Attorney General of the United States should make the president aware of this law: 18 U.S. Code § 594.Intimidation of voters – “Whoever intimidates, threatens, coerces, or attempts to intimidate, threaten, or coerce, any other person for the purpose of interfering with the right of such other person to vote or to vote as he may choose, or of causing such other person to vote for, or not to vote for, any candidate for the office of President, Vice President, Presidential elector, Member of the Senate, Member of the House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, or Resident Commissioner, at any election held solely or in part for the purpose of electing such candidate, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”
So, there you have it. If carried out, Trump’s plan will be a crime. The President of the United States is not above the law. He must be stopped. All of us should go to D.C., surround the White House and make him leave, NOW! I am sick of the same old song and the stupid things he says and does. He’s totally out of tune and fewer and fewer people want to sing with him. Unplug the amplifiers, dismiss the band and remove him from office.
