I don’t hate Trump. I just seriously dislike some of his antics, the constant lying and the way he has driven an even deeper wedge between races and parties. I actually do like some of his policies and some of the things he’s managed to accomplish. If he kept his mouth shut more, his fingers off twitter and didn’t keep trying to pilfer the country for his own personal gain I would be alright with 4 more years.
But he acts like an irreverent bad boy CEO, that can get away with whatever he wants: bullying, nepotism, stoking violence and hatred, using manipulation and deception as his normal mode of operation. And so far he has done so with complete impunity. Which is just unfathomable to me. I can’t believe we have gotten to this point.
I can’t believe how divided we are as a nation, not in spite of him, but directly because of him. He didn’t go out and kill anyone himself, although he joked about it. But when the tension began in this country he did nothing to quell it. He took no stand to try to see both sides and find any kind of resolution.
He seemed to wash his hands and be like Melania’s coat so fittingly said “I don’t care, do you?” And then go on about his business of profiteering, nepotism and grand standing.
He is a perfect television reality show president. Except, that isn’t what we want. That isn’t what this country needs. Or is it coming to that?
Maybe we just make the presidency more of a prop position for him. Trump seems to like the spectacle of it more than the actual duty of it. He loves the power and prestige more than the work involved.
Then we can have cameras follow him around 24/7 and televise everything and anything he says and does. Giving him his very own personal channel. Then just flipping to one of his children or wife whenever he needs privacy for any delicate matters? I think he would really love that. I really do.
I don’t even know what to think anymore. I’m truly embarrassed to have him as our president and I can’t believe it has come to be such a shit-show of a disaster for almost everyone in this country except the elite and hyper-wealthy.
I really don’t know where we are headed but to me it just seems like the movie “Idiocracy” is closer and closer to becoming the reality in this country?
