What a week!
First we have a war of words between two unstable nutjobs that have access to nuclear weapons. Then our nutjob "president" decides the threat of nuclear war with North Korea and China isn't enough, Trump had to bring up the possibility of an armed conflict with Venezuela.
WHAT. THE. EVER LIVING FUCK.
Remember when all the pro-Trump morons accused the anti-Trumpers/Never Trumpers of overreacting to a Trump presidency and dismissing our VERY valid concerns about his misogyny (possible sexual predator), his racist rhetoric, his mental fitness and his intellectual deficiencies?
I do. Especially when each new day brings about embarrassment, dazzling displays of incompetence, chaos and stomach-churning uncertainty. It's gotten so bad, that my idiotic sister who WAS (heh) a very vocal supporter has now turned against him.
I ask this question, yet again: what will it take for the House and Senate Republicans to do their jobs and remove this orange disaster from office? Will it take an actual nuclear exchange for them to do anything?
I'm not holding my breath. Doing the 'right thing' is a lost concept on most in this country, why would our corrupt and spineless politicians be any different?
And finally, to end this abominable week, one of this country's most vile and disgusting enemy, the White supremacist decides to make an appearance. Re-branded and now known as the alt-right, they staged a marching protest, complete with lighted TIKKI TORCHES, nazi salutes and chants of "blood and soil", "White lives matter," and "Jews will not replace us." The next day one of the
neo-nazis KKK members White nationalist/supremacist alt-righters decides to drive into a group of counter protesters, KILLING a young women and injuring many more.
The interesting thing about alt-righters is they don't have to hide behind hoods and blankets anymore. Why? The election of Donald Trump has emboldened them, gave them new life. Why hide, when our very own president appoints members of the alt-right to cabinet/admin positions, and champions their causes. David Duke said it best in his response to a Trump tweet:
"I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists."
I can't argue with that. A good portion of Trump's base are alt-righters (White nationalist) and that is a problem for our country. This can't continue. We as a country can't endure much more of Trump's incompetence, regressive policies and the emboldening of White supremacy. Our worst fears about having a president like Trump are coming true.
Would it be bad form if I shouted to all whom voted for him, "I TOLD YOU SO, YOU BRAINLESS MOTHERFUCKERS!!!" that a Trump presidency would doom us all?
