There’s a new dance sweeping the nation. It’s called the Donald Trump Trample. So far the White House staff, Departments of government, Congress, and Scotus are learning how it’s done.
First there’s the Trump Trample on racial and religious groups. From Mexicans to Muslims there’s enough disrespect and hate for all. His tacit support of the Nazis and white supremacists fit in with his concept of America.
Next he does the Trump Trample on individuals. Whether it’s Jeff Sessions, James Comey, the GOP leadership in Congress or the long list of departed staffers. No one but his family is spared. For now. Trump has no shame in publicly bullying and berating people.
Finally and more importantly he does the Trump Trample on the basic rights and freedoms that are the foundation of America. His war on the press has viciously attacked the First Amendment. The greatest and most pathological liar to ever sit in the Oval Office, wants to control the truth. He tacitly encourages violence and hate.
There’s no doubt that everybody’s afraid of the Trump Trample. He runs the country like a reality TV show. Create a fantasy world, crank up the drama and the tension and keep them entertained. He truly believes in his own superiority. Only he can decide what’s lawful or not. If you’re anywhere in government and you don’t fall in line you’re gone.
So far the Trump Trample has worked. He freely trashes institutions, individuals, and civil rights in the most base way built on pathological lies. He has succeeded in intimidating and frightening all around him. He will do the dance until he is recognized as the indispensable leader. His ego, personality disorders, and mental illness, will accept no less
There has been a lot of debate over what the statue of Donald Trump in the Hall of Presidents at Disney World should say.
Here are a few suggestions:
I want to grab your pussy.
Nobody respects women more than me.
I did not collude with the Russians despite all of the verified evidence to the contrary.
I’m the president, can you believe it.
If she wasn’t my daughter I would date her.
Jeff sessions is a great pick for Atty. Gen.
Jeff sessions is weak.
Who knew being president would be so difficult.
Mme. Macron, your hot and your husband loves holding hands with me.
Mine is bigger and better than yours.
Make America Great Again ( after I’m finished with it)
I am the Greatest. ( apologies to Mohammed Ali)
You’ll win so much you will get tired of winning ( with apologies to Charlie Sheen)
I did not collude with that man, Vladimir Putin.
Since I’ve been added to the Hall of Presidents the crowds have been HUGE
I demand loyalty. I just don’t give it.
On my first day in office we will repeal and replace Obamacare.
I’m going to make you an offer you can’t refuse.
Kiss my ass and I’ll make it worth your while.
I will not disclose my taxes. I have nothing to hide.
I nor anyone in my campaign had any dealings with the Russians except for all dealings that emerge from this witchhunt.
bubble bubble toil and trouble. hocus-pocus.
Stephen Douglas should have stopped World War II.
I have a job. All of my family and friends are working.
I was born in the early 50s. World War II seemed like distant history. In studying the 1930s and 40s I wondered how a Hitler or Mussolini could take over a civilized democracy. Now I know.
Putin certainly helped. Donald Trump found fertile ground in the ugly underbelly of America’s lowest common denominator. Those who stayed home in 2016 allowed Trump and Putin to hijack American democracy.
Trump is behaving like a dictator following the Tyrant’s Handbook for Dummies to the letter. He along with the GOP Congress and Scotus seem bent on reversing and destroying the social and political gains of the last 200 years.
In six months, Trump and the GOP have managed to bring America to its lowest point in history in the eyes of the world ever. America has given up its leadership of the free world. No longer a beacon for democracy and freedom, America has become a bad and scary joke to the rest of the free world.
The GOP must grow a set of patriotic balls and take back America before it is too late.
