Trump Fatigue


I published this in the local e-paper:

I am so looking forward to getting back to some form of normality; to a day I can turn the television on and don’t have to hear Trump bragging about how smart he is, or how great a job he is doing, or attacking some imaginary enemy; a time when Trump isn’t grabbing the headlines with some outrageous action, or his desecration of some democratic norm; a time when every day, all day long, it is not about Trump - Trump - Trump.

Those of you in the Trump cult can build a shrine to your Glorious Leader in your home; hang his picture on the wall and surround it with Confederate flags, Russian Flags, white supremacy and Neo-Nazi memorabilia.  Build an alter for your red hat or have MAGA tattooed on your forehead; but please, give the rest of us a break, don’t make the next four years about Trump – Trump – Trump and how he was cheated out of reelection, even though he lost the popular vote by seven million votes. 


 I don't agree that we need to give the Trump Cult Loyalist a pass.   Trump is a racist, supported by the KKK and neo-Nazi, he has colluded with Russia where he has financial interest, he has used his office to enrich himself and his family, he is personally responsible for an out of control pandemic that has killed a quarter of a million Americans, he has tried to overthrow the results of a legitimate election, he has made our country weaker by placing unqualified loyalist in major positions of government, he has vilified the free press, he has encouraged anarchy and even violence from his rabid supporters, he has threatened to jail political rivals, he has destroyed the United States standing over seas with our allies...

I know that his supporters live in the alternate reality of Fox News and other far right propaganda networks, but the damage and destruction to the norms of our democracy perpetrated by Trump will be a problem for our democratic system of government for decades to come.   Trump has taken a wrecking ball to a democracy that has taken two-hundred-and-fifty years to build.  Trump supporters who have blindly followed the Glorious Leader are, in the end, responsible.

  1. Amen. My most fervent hope at the moment is that when noon, January 20, arrives the orange shitgibbon gets purged from social media and Fox News stops taking his calls. His acolytes have short memories; once he's out of sight most of them will find another squirrel to chase.

  2. Amen! I will also not forget the complicity of the Republican party.

    1. Yes. Imagine, if you can, that Dems even tried this! Come one, they are treasonous traitors and unamericans! I will never forget this and never ever vote Republican!

  3. the only time I want to hear trumps name is followed by 'is deceased.'

  4. fingers crossed for that sister!!!
