TEAR GAS AND TARIFFS

Trump’s Punchbowl Dirty Deeds  

The very vulgar saying, “a turd in the punchbowl” applies to Donald Trump in most of what he says and how he acts. It means something or someone that spoils, ruins, or needlessly complicates a situation or circumstance. One could also say, that a person doing such a horrible thing was being a disagreeable nuisance or source of irritation. The President sure does what he wants without the understanding or care of how it might hurt people. He makes up his own analysis and answers without hearing from experts or opposite points of view.

When Donald Trump wanted to fulfill one of his campaign promises to get back at China and Europe, he ordered tariffs on steel and aluminum. When Trump created a fear of South Americans coming to the US-Mexico border, he got his wish. Young men and families attempted to cross the border into San Diego. And in true form, Trump border army launched tear gas and mustard bullets into the crowds without any regard for the women and children. One can argue the old “human shield” argument, but when Trump lied about three border agents being injured, he proved once again that he will lie about anything.

When asked about the latest mandated government report on the affects and possible results of climate change, he simply said, “I don’t believe it.” At this point, we don’t really know what he believes in. He says he believes in America and America First, but when his actions directly harm the economy, the workers and the international reputation of the United States, his actions seem like a big joke, rather than serious governance.

He surrounds himself with “Yes” men and women who sometimes, against their own judgement, will agree with him and push out the lies that support the most outrageous statements. Some in government, knowing they will be held to a certain standard by oversight and ethics lawyers, will tell the truth. And then the truth is buried.

When the smoke clears on this administration, we will fully comprehend the damage that this fool has brought to our country. The shame of those who disagree but do not speak will not be forgotten. With their $800 suits and TV makeup, Senators and Representatives have done nothing to stop this rogue president and his disregard for the rule of law. Donald Trump is just another self-serving political whore without any moral conviction or patriotic spine. He only works toward his own agenda without the long-term implications being considered. He also is lying about how he is losing money by being president. If that is true, why wouldn’t he fire his sons running the company?

Sure, Trump can get press showing soldiers lobbing tears gas into Hispanics at the border, but his plan just might backfire. If Mexico holds the immigrants and works toward giving them jobs and housing near the border, Mexico could have a new low wage work force that will eventually hurt the US job market? Time will tell.

But the man who says he has a plan to make everything better and create millions of jobs is now faced with the inevitable reality, that US corporations are capitalistic organizations that make decisions based on data, not the whim of a man with a big tie. We saw what General Motors did this week, and we know that even though they won’t admit it openly, the tariffs that Trump imposed will cost that company a billion dollars.

A recent article showed tons of soy beans rotting in storage because of Trump’s actions with the Asian markets. When does someone suggest more talking with trading partners and less outright antagonistic bullshit and tweet storms.

The fact that Donald Trump can only disagree makes him a president who cannot work toward someone else’s good idea.

He has created a vacuum and slipped something into the punchbowl that no one wants. Our Great Orange Leader is his own worst enemy. The latest poll shows that 60% disapprove of him and only 38% think he’s a great leader. He says that there may be some short-term pain, but why would any worker have to fear that they might lose their job? The stock market is doing so well, why wouldn’t those companies take care of their workers? Oh yeah, Trump doesn’t care about the workers. He only says he does.
