When I voted for Trump in 2016, it was really a vote against crooked Hillary. At the time I held my nose because Trump was almost as repulsive as the Hildebeast. Now we may have a crooked Donald sitting in the White House.
Trump has shown himself to be a liar time and time again. He keeps contradicting himself because he’s told so many lies that he can’t remember telling them. He seems to get many of his ‘facts’ from the fake news disseminated on social media. His tweets show that he is a thin-skinned bully.
Trump’s former longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, has reportedly told Special Counsel Robert Mueller about hush money paid from campaign funds to porn star Stormy Daniels. And when Allen Weisselberg, CFO of the Trump Organization, gets through cooperating with Mueller, we may find out that Trump is a crook too.
Trump has no shame. Senator John McCain, who passed away August 25, was a true hero. He served his country as a Navy fighter pilot during the Vietnam War. McCain endured more than five years of torture and deprivation in a North Vietnamese prison camp after his plane was shot down by an enemy missile. Trump, on the other hand, managed to obtain five draft deferments during the Vietnam War, four for college and one for bone spurs in his heels that suddenly showed up right after he graduated from college. Yet he had the nerve to question McCain’s heroism for letting himself be captured.
Furthermore, the draft dodger continued to disrespect McCain even in death. Trump had the White House flag lowered to half-mast for only one day before raising it again when all the other flags in the nation’s capital remained at half-mast. It was only after he received a shitstorm of criticism from the Pentagon as well as from Republicans and Democrats alike that he had the flag lowered to half-mast again.
In fairness to Trump, I agree that he is being victimized by a partisan witch hunt. There was no collusion with any Russian government official. But that’s not stopping Mueller who seems determined to bring Trump down. Mueller is working up an Obstruction of Justice case and he has a possible campaign funds violation with the payoff to Stormy Daniels. And by giving Weisselberg immunity, Mueller may even be able to dig up some past corrupt business practices.
I also think Trump’s foreign policy sure beats the crap out of Obama’s and I do like that he has rolled back many of his predecessor’s edicts. And, of course, I also like his nominations for justices of SCOTUS. But all that does not alter the fact that Trump is a disgusting jerk.
There is no doubt that Robert Mueller, the mainstream media, former CIA Director John Brennan, the Obama insiders and Hillary’s supporters are all openly and aggressively pursuing a coup d’etat against President Trump. While Obama was untouchable as the first black president, unfortunately for Trump, his skin color does not protect him.
But the embattled president is not helping his cause any with his vindictive tweets. While Trump’s hard-core followers love those tweets, the majority of Americans disapprove of them. And then there is the alleged turmoil within the White House which plays out more like an old Proctor and Gamble soap opera than the way a government should function.
Despite my disgust for Trump, I will vote for him again if he makes it as far as 2020 and runs for another term in office. I hate to think of what direction this country will be headed to under the administration of Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris or someone else of their ilk. God save America if any of them ever get to take over the helm of our government.
So if he makes it to 2020 and runs for reelection, I urge all of you to vote for Trump, even if you are disgusted with him, just like I will do.
