I’m having some trouble this morning working on a title for this post so I decided just to start writing and let the title come to me. I must admit without the slightest bit of guilt that watching this first two months of the Trump Administration’s performance of political amateur hour has given me nothing but hours and hours of pleasure. More times than I care to count I’ve said in the past that the American government is not suited to be run as a business yet Trump, a businessman, won by catering to the bigotries, feeding the fear and stoking the anger of a part of the American electorate least deserving of being heard– white middle class idiots who do not live in cities and that will believe anything that fits into their narrow worldview.
I woke up about an hour or so ago and was reading an article written by Pamela Geller at Breitbart.com which tried to make points for why Trump is failing. The article is trash for the most part but from time to time in the piece Geller crawls out of the bubble and breathes an atmosphere at least similar to that of someone whose sole purpose isn’t to be a Jewish version of a member of the SS hell bent on destroying all Muslims. Geller writes, “So what happened? Trump has to take control. Take a page from Obama and clean house. With regard to Obamacare, Trump should take decisive action to salvage the situation now. He should call every GOP congressman into his office and just hammer out a deal.
Here’s the thing: he talks about being a great negotiator, and that may be true. But throughout his career until now, he has been negotiating not with politicians, but with businessmen. We know their motive: profit. Money.
It’s not the same with politicians. Politics is a twisted world, in which power and reelection are the currency in which they trade. The bottom line in business is money, and while money talks for politicians also, the bottom line with these corrupt clowns is not always so easy to discern.”
She’s right for once; Trump isn’t a politicians and he is so out of his depth that he doesn’t even realize it. Is there still time for Trump to salvage his one term in office? Sure. Will he change his tactics and become a nimble politician who can work with Democrats and establishment Republicans to get things that need to be done done for all Americans? No.
Donald Trump never had the personality or the toughness to be President of the United States. Trump is failing at a game he never thought he could win and isn’t fit to play-politics, and he is too stubborn and addicted to his own bluster to realize it. Donald Trump is bad for America and cancerous to anyone who ever called themselves a conservative. The Trump Administration literally has a month and a half to right the ship and string together three victories, just simple things that show you’ve got a strong hand on the tiller, or it will be too late for him to even stay in office until the 2018 midterms. Being thin skinned was the cardinal sin of one Richard Milhous Nixon and all of you reading this know how that turned out in 1974. I ask you MAGA freaks out there who will read this to go through the comments of Geller’s article and imagine just for a second that this were 2009 and Barack Obama’s administration less than a month short of 100 days into their first term were struggling with connections to say the Saudi government who may have aided the 44th President in getting elected through illegal means? Sure Progressives would have fiercely rallied to their President’s side as we did when the entire birth certificate thing became a thing. But think about how sick we would be in the depths of our souls knowing that their could have been a grain of truth in a scandal that might mean the President had foreign help to steal the election? What sort of person can pivot away from “The President is a Muslim!” to “Make America Great Again, even if that means committing treason to win?
