The best way to make America ‘great’ is for the nation to move on, without Trump in the White House.
It’s almost painful to watch pro-Trump pundits squirm on national television when asked to explain why Trump continues to kiss Vladimir Putin’s ass. Now that national security advisor Michael Flynn has resigned in disgrace over his alleged ties to Russia, connecting the dots has gotten a lot easier.
If Trump was as smart as he claims to be, he would spare this country it’s worst scandal in history and simply resign. America needs a real president, not a bloviating amateur who seems completely oblivious to the toxic chaos that is his White House.
In less than a month, Trump appears to be America’s greatest threat to our national security. Furthermore, his administration’s credibility is sinking under the weight of alternative facts, outright lies, conflicts of interest, and a potential coverup over a Trump-Russia connection that could dwarf Nixon’s Watergate scandal.
The people Trump has chosen to surround himself with are part of the problem, and offer some insight into the real goals of the administration. In nearly every instance, his cabinet picks have a long history of being enemies of the agencies they’ve been chosen to head. Putting a fox in charge of the henhouse is the expression that comes to mind. Why would a president who claims to love America, fill his cabinet with people who clearly want to dismantle its foundations?
Something is wrong with this picture is a gross understatement when it comes to the entire 2016 election season. Trump didn’t just break political norms, he shattered the minimum moral standards that Americans have come to expect from their president. There is plenty of blame to go around, but it ultimately lands in the hands of those who voted and those who didn’t.
Secret tax returns, a videotape of sexual assault comments, unfounded conspiracy theories about voter fraud, insulting judges and Gold Star families, fat-shaming Miss Universe, saying derogatory things about Mexicans, Muslims, women, the disabled, immigrants; the list goes on through every inch of the Internet. All this was before Election Day. Considering the result, that deserves some thought.
Trump lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes. Yet he still managed to win the electoral college by flipping traditionally blue states, which for the first time, were electing a president without the full protection of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and with strict voter ID laws. Did Trump walk into a lucky coincidence? Or were Republicans so desperate to force their fascist-austerity agenda on America that they were willing to abandon democracy itself?
We may never know the truth about how Trump managed to win the Electoral College. Yet, we are not blind. Donald Trump has already proven that he is incapable of making America anything but more divided and more ethically compromised.
At this point, it could be argued that the best way to make America ‘great’ is for the nation to move on, without Donald Trump in the White House.
