Those of us with low expectations for the Trump Inaugural were not disappointed. He could have issued a call for unity. He could have addressed the concerns of the majority who did not vote for him. But no, instead he continued to demonstrate his unfitness for office, his insatiable ego, his lack of knowledge, and his basic lack of interest in being the President. He’s more concerned with ratings and crowd sizes than in governing. Those of us who thought that the grownups would get to him have realized that the grownups have no influence. He is a deranged and dangerous egomaniac who doesn’t know any better than to start his term with a loser’s controversy over crowd size. He’s starting with an attack on Federal employees – yeah, that’s real helpful.
We have entered a new era of Government by Lie. Trump lies so easily, so frequently, that we are getting used to it! If I thought he was really going to last four years, I’d really be depressed.
Don the Con now enjoys the support of approximately 30% of the voters. He’ll never add to that number unless he gets his priorities straight. Twitter wars were okay when he was just a candidate but his delusion that he can bypass the “crooked media” by using tweets just isn’t reality. Unless he can BUILD on his base, he won’t be around long. If he were really “a very smart person”, he’d know that.
The outrages are coming so thick and so fast it’s hard to keep up. Remember that this con, like all cons, works by distraction. He’ll keep the attention on himself by tweets and sound bits, and hope the true agenda stays under the radar.
HERE is an accounting of this past weekend. It’s not a good start.
