The Grand Jury Test
Let it be said here that Donald J Trump wanted to be president. He asked for all this negative feedback with his actions and his mouth. Just on the surface, his comments and denials would make the most junior prosecutor ask the question, why? Why has there been so much pushback on something that all his minions say is a nothing-burger? And that is why the press keeps asking if he was involved with the Russians and now the perpetrator of some cover-up. The answers have never seemed very believable.
During a speech in Cincinnati to bolster his great achievements in tax cuts and the economy a few days ago, the Donald once again showed his inability to graduate from candidate Trump to President Trump. He has not become a real president.
While the President was demeaning Democrats by suggesting they were committing treason by not clapping for him, he told his “fans” to remember to vote in 2018. The irony came when the stock market started a free fall of 1,175 points and cable news networks jumped out of his speech to cover the calamity taking place on Wall Street.
By accusing Congress for not responding to his every utterance as UNAMERICAN, he once again demonstrated his true desire to sow division. It’s not that they don’t like what you are saying, Mr. President. They just don’t like you. You don’t get it, do you?
Now Trump’s lawyers are floating the idea of him not meeting with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. According to the New York Times (2-6-2018), his legal team knows that “Trump’s penchant for lying, contradictions and bold exaggerations could lead to charges of making false statements — or obstruction.” What we have here, is a failure to communicate of the highest order. The President of the United States is not worthy of telling the truth. What have we done?
When this presidency began, I was overcritical and certain that this man would lead us to a constitutional crisis. Well, we are ready to pull into that station. If Trump fails to sit down for an interview with Mueller and his team, he can be forced to go before the grand jury to testify. On the good side for Trump, grand juries are secret. On the bad side, Trump would be all alone, sans attorneys, while he would be testifying before a jury of his peers. Oh, boy.
The problem with Donald Trump is that he actually believes that he has never done anything wrong in his whole life. That baked-in confidence defies logic and the law. If he has always gotten his way in life, then the spoiled child will lie to get out of any problem that is thrown his way.
When you are under oath, you can try to fudge the facts and create some fantasy narrative, but sooner or later an eye witness will force the discussion into who is right. Just as his lawyers will take the aspect of presidential testimony to the Supreme Court, they will have to decide whether any one person is above the law. Crisis created.
We have faith in the Supreme Court to get it right, but if they decide against the Great Orange Leader and compel him to swear that what he says is the truth, we should all get ready for him to deride the court, as he has done before.
Trump is like a baseball player who has bad form, holds the bat incorrectly and swings for the fence on every pitch. When he stops hitting homeruns and all the cheering ends, he will learn that his unique way of operating was the reason he got into the slump in the first place. Strong-arming only works for a certain period, then good old truth prevails.
The truth is that this person, that a minority of Americans put into office, is not very good at this game of managing a country. He might think he is handling his audience (the base), but the United States is so much more than his base. The first step in getting people to do what you want is to get them to like you. Congress on both sides distrusts him.
During his speech in Ohio, Trump said, “They would rather see Trump do badly, OK, than our country do well…it’s very selfish…even on positive news, really positive news like that, they were like death and Un-American. Un-American. Somebody said ‘treasonous.’ I mean, yeah, I guess, why not? Can we call that treason? Why not. I mean, they certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much. But you look at that and it’s really very, very sad.” Oh, how he forgets what the then minority leader of the Senate said about Obama, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” TREASON or NOT? Unamerican activity, we think not? Have you no decency Mr. Trump?
In the end, Donald Trump will be remembered as the President who made us realize that every vote counts and that no matter who is President, politics will be politics. Biased, self-serving belligerence is their code of dishonor. Trump is merely a facilitator of division and a delusional political fake who really believes he makes a difference. But with his team calling “Dreamers” lazy and Trump saying we need a shutdown, after he derided Democrats for the last shutdown, shows he’s so out of touch and maybe even mentally ill.
