Trump, the _________ and ___________!

Albert Einstein said, “Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.”

How appropriate for today’s political climate. When the president is more interested in who had the most votes or who had the biggest crowd, and when presented with facts he doesn’t like, he creates his own facts and sometimes lies. How can we expect a person who is so far of touch with reality to guide our country in a time of crisis?

Donald Trump is relying on the trust of his followers. Why they would continue to support him after he has broken so many promises can only be summed up in Stephen King’s quote, “Trust of the innocent is the liar’s useful tool.”

Now let’s look at Trump and what he really is. He doesn’t mind spending $3 million-plus each week to go play golf at his resort. He is benefiting himself by the use of his office to go to his private club, which in and of itself should be a conflict of interest, but if not, it certainly creates the impression of impropriety. Setting that aside, how can people support a man who can spend $3 million-plus a week on his personal entertainment and yet cut Meals on Wheels, the State Department and other key programs?

Blind allegiance is just as it says. Blind to the facts, and forget reason.

When a real crisis does come, will people believe him, and equally important, will our allies believe him?

Trump’s attacks upon the legal system are unbecoming a president. I have no problem if he wants to appeal; that is his right. To denigrate the courts only encourages his followers to disregard the law. What is the lesson that we are teaching our young people?

In Germany in the late ’30s and early ’40s, it was Joseph Goebbels who believed if you tell the same lie over and over again, the people will begin to believe it is true.

Trump is not a bully. That would be to kind to him. He is a tyrant — a person in a position of authority who exercises power oppressively or despotically.
