Two recent mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso, driven by delusions embraced by what a growing majority recognizes as an illegitimate president, reveal the sad truth about violence in this country. President Donald J. Trump’s name has been invoked in at least 36 cases having to do with violence, threats and alleged assaults because he routinely spews hatred and racism and lies about everything simply to cater to the shrinking minority of misguided miscreants that embrace every putrid quality he emanates.
In order to unify and comfort an ailing country, a president needs to be empathetic and understanding, not self-centered and delusional so it is impossible for Trump to do. After more than 30 months of stirring up vitriol and hate against people that aren’t White, Trump is past the point of comforting anyone or acting presidential with any credibility. Regardless of what he says, his tweets and actions speak louder and tell a totally different story, revealing the truth of his disregard for anyone but himself.
Each passing day Trump’s rhetoric has worsened as his racist diatribes continue spewing forth from his Twitter feed and at his so-called rallies where he incites fear and violence routinely while lying repeatedly. He can’t even give a regular speech without devolving into a vitriolic idiot who has no concept of reality. Never one to accept blame for his own fatally flawed personality traits and delusions, Trump has to blame everyone else. Despite his failed attempt at addressing these crises and calling for unity, his words and actions only serve to make things worse. That will never change.
Trump has a history of emanating fear and hate at his rallies due to his dictatorial aspirations and loves being surrounded by idiots that don’t know any better and aren’t capable of thinking for themselves. He couldn’t care less whether or not anyone gets hurt as long as he’s the center of attention. Since all he ever does is lie, self-aggrandize and dream up delusional embellishments, he prefers to bloviate his vitriolic, racist screeds whenever and wherever he can, offering us yet more evidence as to how illegitimate and ignorant he truly is.
Having what a majority refer to as an illegitimate president in the White House who lost the popular vote by nearly three million votes has proved painful and costly to this country over the past two and a half years, but having said president spewing his racist rants across the air waves – unchecked by much of the so-called mainstream media – because he foolishly believes that using racism to encourage hatred is a winning strategy that will get him re-elected and then lying about it takes that illegitimacy to a whole new level.
Donald Trump has perfected the art of causing distractions to deflect from his endless corruption fueled by his profound ignorance to keep his criminal actions concealed while the public focuses on what he says instead of what he does. Making matters worse is the fact that the press continues repeating his racist lies verbatim without question. Indeed, if the press did its job and called Trump’s repeated lies and racist bluster out things might be a little different.
Trump’s bigotry and racism have been on full display for more than four decades, but the growing desperation from his failed presidency is bringing it to the forefront. Since being ‘elected’ Trump has had nothing to do with making America great again and everything to do with fraudulently enriching himself and his GOP enablers while gaslighting the minority of minions that voted for him.
TRUMP’S IGNORANCE AND RACISM HAVE BECOME POLITICS AS USUAL
Trump’s latest racial tirade began over this past weekend when he tweeted that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts – four of his biggest critics in the U.S. Congress – should ‘go back’ to the ‘broken and crime infested places from which they came,’ despite the fact that three of them were actually born here in the U.S. and one is a naturalized citizen. It’s rather ironic that he never mentions the fact that his wife is also an immigrant.
Fueling his racism and White Nationalism gives Trump more than ample ammunition to gin up his non-existent national emergency on America’s borders and push his immoral, unethical agendas. Before being ‘elected’ Trump promised that Mexico would build a wall to keep immigrants out, but as with the rest of his promises, it was nothing more than a heaping pile of bull shit that his supporters rolled around in. By constantly spewing vitriolic racism, it allows Trump to continue his scams and garner support from the minority of supporters that still can’t think for themselves and cater to his ever-shrinking base. Since being ‘elected,’ said supporters have been more up front and open with their racism and hatred.
One of the major drawbacks over the past two and a half plus years of having an illegitimate idiocracy occupying the White House and a Congressional body that continues enabling him is how the endless bigotry, corruption, racism and overall vileness of a traitorous, vindictive career con man as a president has destroyed any semblance of law and order as well as Democracy. Having a wannabe Twitter tyrant spewing his vitriolic idiocies all over the place to cover up his criminal actions has become normalcy and politics as usual.
