I’ve always wondered how T Rumps 38% of popular support could translate into a political victory even when you factor in the dated and undemocratic Electoral College.
Then came The Mueller Report and with it the definitive answer to my quandary.
T Rump has a “Hidden Base” of support that’s impossible to categorize by any conventional standard.
His “Hidden Base” is Russia, America’s leading global adversary.
Our country’s most dangerous foreign enemy is our president’s most revered and trusted ally.
Think about that.
Russia is T Rumps strategic partner in manipulating American voting behavior to favor him and Russia’s agenda that includes denying Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, lifting US sanctions against Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, holding private, off-the-books meetings with Vladimir Putin, withdrawing US troops from Syria, giving a pass to Saudi prince MBS and his role in the Khashoggi killing, dividing Americans against themselves, undermining America’s relationship with its European allies, dismantling NATO, favoring Kim Jong-Un and enhancing his global stature, scrapping the Iran nuclear deal…and the list goes on.
T Rump has proved repeatedly that he’s a witting agent of Russia and a trusted Putin ally.
If supporters of T Rump who describe themselves as patriots are good with this behavior, said support aligns well with T Rump’s female supporters who have no conscientious objection to his predatory sexual behavior and his repugnant attitude on incest. Their support helps explain similar support of military combat veterans who know T Rump had his Queens, NY, podiatrist diagnose fictitious bone spurs five times to qualify him as physically unfit for military service in Vietnam. Perhaps they were comforted when T Rump explained that avoiding STD’s in the Manhattan dating scene during this time was every bit as dangerous as military combat duty.
Of course it was.
How do (so-called) Christians, who adamantly support T Rump, assuage their souls in light of all of the above plus his Guinness Book of Record level of lying, his xenophobia, his islamophobia, his homophobia, his tolerance of White supremacists, Neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen, sycophancy toward Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-Un, being named an unindicted co-conspirator of a federal crime by federal prosecutors…?????
I’m impressed how people can subordinate their principles, no; completely bury them, while crowing T Rump is:
The economy is great.
I love his Supreme Court selections.
He’s a businessman, not a “swamp” denizen.”
Ask him how many abortions he paid for during those dangerous years dating in Manhattan.
Obama rescued our economy from certain collapse and T Rump continues, like all of us, to benefit from Obama’s unprecedented and daring initiatives.
The Federalist Society and its long-time member, White House Counsel Donald F. McGahn II, selected Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court nomination, not T Rump. Any Republican president would have followed a similar path.
T Rump has filed bankruptcy four times for Trump Companies in the past 25 years. He knows as much about succeeding in business as he knows about humility.
T Rump has lit a match to American Democracy and we’re all witnesses to its slow, but certain demise. T Rump supporters either don’t give a damn or support what he’s doing.
In the meantime, Democrats are standing on the sidelines engulfed in smoke, twiddling their thumbs, arguing to themselves that they need more evidence.
Democracy is on fire, thanks to T Rump, and putting it out is paramount. Immigration reform, infrastructure rebuilding, universal healthcare…all are irrelevant unless or until the fire is extinguished.
The time to impeach T Rump is now!
America’s voting majority needs a president.
Decency. Honesty. Fairness. Trustworthiness.
Principle. Patriotism. Faithfulness. Kindness. Generosity. Empathy…they, too, need a president.
