Donald Trump is an angry man.
No matter how much money he has; how much power he grabs; or how many people kowtow before him, he’s a blink from a meltdown.
Nothing soothes his fury.
Most Americans know this man is spiteful, rude, and vulgar. The man is unable to tell the truth about, well, almost anything. He has smashed the structures of our government and is hinting that he’ll run for president (again)in 2024.
I don’t know what made Trump the man he is. What I do know is this: Trump hurts us every day.
Trump attacks anyone and everyone. He punches at his own party leaders. He ridicules Democrats. He attacks the FBI, questions the intelligence services, picks on anyone who doesn’t bow down before him.
He brags about skirting the norms of the presidency. He declared that he can do anything with “his” Justice Department. He says he’s smarter than “his” generals. Through it all runs a terrifying strain of white supremacy and racial hatred.
He proved how deranged, dangerous, and deadly he is on January 6, 2021 when he encouraged the attack on the Capitol by his deranged, dangerous, and deadly followers.
The Republican base and GOP leaders still bow before Trump.
To cement power, the GOP has welcomed religious zealots, racists, conspiracy theory lovers, and government haters of every stripe. Sprinkle in a disdain for the environment, a disregard for the rights of women and minorities, and a total blindness for those in need . . . add a fast-talking, big shot from reality TV and, PRESTO! You’ve got the crazy we’re living through right now.
If we’re going to end the radical GOP chokehold on our government, it will take all of us. Luckily, America has not ignored the threat. Resistance is strong, and growing stronger. Every day, more and more Americans realize that this is our moment.
Stand up . . . Stop Trump and the GOP . . .
2022 is the year. Tuesday, November 8 is the date. Voting against the GOP is the solution.
