I've been sort of quiet lately owing to my complete disdain for the idiot who is president but also for both political parties. It's hard to be patriotic this fourth of July with this bunch in in control. Therefore it's been tough to post since the entire political atmosphere has this surreal feeling. However, you can always count on the Fat Slob governor of New Jersey to shake me up and send me to the key board. Currently NJ is in the midst of a budget crisis which has been made much worse because of the Fat Slob. With no budget in place the state has had to shut parks and beaches for the important holiday weekend. This includes Liberty State Park which is home to the Statue of Liberty. With the public unable to get to the beach that is home to the Slob's beach home this horrendous excuse for a human being has the nerve to sun his fat body on the beach along with his ugly family. To be sure until the photo of him sunning himself like a beached whale surfaced he had denied being on the beach!!!! The Slob's approval rating in the state is now at 16% and after this caper heading even lower. He is a disgusting lackey ass kisser who is destined to be Dump's butt boy before too long. This is man who had no hesitation in closing the George Washington Bridge in an act of political vengeance. It cost lives!!! Folks died of heart attacks and EMT's could not get to them in time. Now the Fat Slob is perfectly willing to see aides like Bridget Kelly take the fall and go to jail.
I must remind readers that even when the Slob was riding high I warned folks about his character. I have been proven correct more than I could have imagined.!!! The man has no shame!!!!
Watching Trump's press conference was the most jarring experience for me – since he "won" the election. It was bizarre and frightening. The entire press conference was a vile dog and pony show. From the scam trust he's setting up, to his bragging about his "win" and continuing to trash Hillary – the man is unhinged, a liar, a braggart, completely unqualified, and has not an ounce of decency.
What I found the most repugnant and chilling was Trump's press secretary starting the press conference criticizing the media – talking about fake news.Trump – who is the grandfather of fake news, starting with his racist birtherism act about President Obama – accused the media of fake news.
His first press conference was a failure—a demonstration of sheer incompetence in his new role. He satisfied no one but himself. That is because he is a stupid narcissist. It will be interesting to see him crash and burn over and over again. It would be comic if it weren't tragic.
The latest "Tweet" target of the Punk Asshole(PA) is Rep. John Lewis. For those of you that having been living in a cave for the past thirty years John Lewis is a civil rights icon who participated in a voting rights march in Selma Alabama during the 1960"s in because he was advocating the right to vote of black people was beaten to near death by racist Alabama state troopers. Mr. Lewis rightfully referred to PA as an illegitimate president because he ascent to power was predicated on the hacking of the election by the Russians in order to elect PA. Of course this illegitimacy does not include PA losing the popular voted by more than 3 million votes. PA tweeted that Rep. Lewis should be quiet and concentrate "on actions". Well I call marching for freedom and getting beaten to near death ACTION. This is just another example of the Punk Asshole having no shame!!!
If the November 8, 2016 Presidential election were re-run on the 9th the results would have been much more decisive. Although vast armies of voters hated Hillary they would have voted for her if they even remotely believed that Donald Trump would actually be elected. Talk about the Russians all you want and they probably did play some role in electing the horror that is now president. However, it's my strongly held view that Trump was not taken seriously owing to the media talking up the inevitability of a Clinton win. Indeed, the conventional wisdom held that she could win in a "landslide". This widely held view resulted in many protest votes for third party candidates that were instrumental in swinging three key states to Trump ( Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania). Too bad there wasn't a day after pill for this election!!!
Love him or hate him you have to admit that Trump is a great performer. He knows his audience with rare political instinct and he usually pulls it off. Last night he gave a super performance. He is learning well to read a telepromter of a speech written by other people. His goal last night was to look presidential and he achieved that objective. The soap opera continues.
Having spent all my working life analyzing the financial markets I must admit to being completely baffled by how the stock market keeps rising to new highs in the age of Trump. Yesterday the Dow Industrials managed to gain more than 300 points following the lunatics' speech to Congress. I guess the barons of finance appreciated the fact that he wasn't hauled away with a net over his head. Folks don't buy into this silly market froth. Sell!!! When the shit hits the fan the market will collapse.
To be sure for those of us who disdain Donald Trump we got a temporary high last night when the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously upheld a lower court in staying Trumps executive order ban on Muslims. These days anything that slaps down this autocratic lunatic is cause for rejoicing. Still you have to look beyond the court decision to realize the repercussions. Trump is a lunatic. Mentally unbalanced and his reaction to the decision was of course a tweet that was done in ALL CAPS. He is pissed that he wasn't given free license to be a king. What I fear is that he will now stage a "terrorist" attack that he will claim is a result of the courts not backing up his executive orders. He will then use the attack to seek more power and possibly even declare martial law. So folks enjoy the slap in his face for a few hours but beware the next few weeks.
Today is President's Day when the nation honors the many honorable and good men who have led our nation. Let one thing be clear!!! Donald Trump will never be one of those to be honored. First of all he is not a legitimate president. More than likely his pals in the Kremlin fixed the election so he could sit his fat disgusting ass in the Oval Office. Additionally while he may have won the electoral college owing to about 70000 uneducated cretins in three states that voted for him because they hated Hillary. Meanwhile the Trump Monster lost the popular vote by a staggering 3 million votes. Since assuming office Dump has caused more chaos in four weeks than any other president in history. He is a danger to the world fabricating lies seemingly with every breath he takes. He is an outrage of Biblical proportions and I can only wish that the hand of God strikes him down before his madness kills many innocent people!!! He will never be my President!!!!
Donald Trump is a one-man basket of deplorables. He is a braggart and a liar. He is a bully and a demagogue. He is an ignoramus and a deadbeat, a chiseler and either a sincere racist or an insincere one, and his love for himself is matched only by my loathing of him. He is about to be president of the United States. He is also a crybaby. He can't take any criticism without being so affronted he must to take to his favorite pass time of tweeting to condemn people. After Meryl Streep's wonderful speech at the Golden Globes he had to tweet that she "is over rated" and a "Hillary flunky". Of course Ms. Streep is the most celebrated actress of our times but the thin skinned bully couldn't stand being ridiculed and called out for what he is. Can you imagine the consequences when he tweets something disparaging about a foreign leader with nuclear weapons at their disposal?
Of course that leader won't be Putin who Trump seems to have a total love affair with. Indeed, I'm surprised that Putin won't be a guest of honor at the inauguration since he did help get Trumps elected. I wonder how all the Vietnam vets feel about the cozy relationship with Russia after being told they were fighting the Red Menace in the jungles of Nam. Of course Trump had a deferment during that was because he had a bad toe. The bottom line to all this is that Trump is a bully and a crybaby to boot. One day he will meet his match and like most cowards he will fold like a cheap camera.
