...the republic is under siege by a moron, basically. The whole thing is tragic. Without overstating it, it's a tragedy for our democracy ~ Bruce Springsteen. From a Rolling Stone interview, 9/23/2017.
Can you believe that one of these people was almost our vice president? Scary to think that someone that dumb got that close to being president. I mean, if John McCain had died in office. And, if McCain had served 2 terms, she could would have run and be potus 45 right now.
Instead we got the male version of Sarah Palin. Intelligence-wise, I mean. Actually, he might be even dumber. Donald Trump is a moron. Born on 3rd base and he thinks he hit a homer. When you start out with hundreds of millions it makes it that much harder to fail. Although Trump knows how to game the system and make it appear as though he isn't a failed businessman.
I refer to his multiple bankruptcies. Something Trump is proud of; saying "I'm the king of debt". The United States can't file for bankruptcy, so this skill might turn out to be dangerous in a president. Of course many people would point out that the national debt increased under Barack Obama. But he did pull us out of a recession, and that was while being blocked by Republicans at every turn.
They blamed him for the bush recession and then for increasing the national debt to pay for a stimulus to avert a depression. Now that the Orange buffoon is in charge, a massive tax cut that will primarily benefit the wealthy and corporations seems probable. I mean, some kind of tax cut is probably going to happen, it's only a question of how budget-busting it is.
The Urban-Brookings Tax Center says "the cost of the cuts Mr. Trump proposed during the campaign at $6.2 trillion, assuming no additional growth, and just under $6 trillion when growth is factored in" (Economists Fear Trump's Tax Plan Only Heightens a Mountain of Debt).
Apparently only Sarah Palin was originally invited and it was her idea to bring Ted and Kid. Palin says "Asked why I invited Kid Rock and Ted Nugent, I joked, Because Jesus was booked". Ha ha ha.
"I will never apologize for calling out evil people" Nuget said when asked if he regretted referring to President Obama as a "subhuman mongrel". Me, I don't think a man who threatened to kill President Obama should be allowed in the White House. It is Nugent who is evil.
Sarah Palin points and smirks at former 1st Lady HRC's portrait in the image above. Nugent gives a thumbs up, as if to say "you aren't president and I approve". Despite the fact that Palin was part of the ticket that ran for the White House and LOST. And Nugent saying he would die or go to jail if Barack Obama were elected to a 2nd term (due to him assassinating, or trying to assassinate President Barack Obama, I presume).
Kid Rock (AKA Robert Ritchie) worried (prior to Trump) that "Obummer" would ban guns. Of the 4 I'd say he's the one who offends me the least. Kid and Ted are non-politicians. Sarah is a failed politician. Donald is the one who is now in a position to do great damage to our country. And the most deplorable one (IMO) in the picture at the top of this post.
Yes, I want to see his agenda fail. Because his agenda will do great harm to our country. I'm not saying I want to see him impeached, because then we'd be stuck with either a president Pence (a huge homophobe) or president Ryan (an individual who hates poor people like his idol Ayn Rand).
But if the evidence shows Trump should be impeached or otherwise removed from office? Either because of collusion with Russia, violating the Constitution's emoluments clause, senility (and removal under Section 4 of the 25th Amendment), or for another reason? I say he should be ousted or forced to resign and let the chips fall where they may.
