Donald Trump… 4th rate Grand-stander

The final gasps that are left of the Republic that we were bequeathed by our forefathers is on the edge of being finally exhaled with this criminal 2.2 trillion “relief package,” and our P. T. Barnum 4th rate grand-standing President Donald J. Trump, decides to go on the warpath against the one and only guy who wants to follow the Constitution and not allow this monstrosity to be passed without a quorum so that people by name and vote are associated with the passage of this grotesquerie. President Trump, showing once again his Democratic Party credentials, is irate with Rep. Massie insisting that the Constitution is followed.

I’ve said this before, but I will repeat it again, Donald J. Trump is a charlatan and a mountebank. The man was never a Republican before 2016 and he continues to have nothing to do with what Republican had once meant, never mind what Conservative has always meant historically. Trump is about to sign a bill which, if Obama or any previous Democrat had signed, Republicans would have howled a howl that would have been heard around the world. Trump, by signing this bill, is the Tweedle-stupid to Bernie Sander’s Tweedle-Dumb.

Now, combine this reality with the fact that once again our immature, torpid and worthless Congress-people are passing a bill of behemoth proportion who have never read the bill. If you recall this was last done when the dementia addled, and Botox inhalent, Nancy Pelosi told us that “we have to pass the bill in order to see what is in the bill.” Rep. Thomas Massie alone stood against this constitutional malfeasance and for that his reward was to be slandered by President Doofus as a third-rate Grand-stander. Keep in mind that all Massie was asking was for people to put their name next to their vote and that request (later denied) as turned Massie into the Red-headed step-child of the Republican party. We will never know who voted for and against this constitutional suicide relief bill.

Trump is a fourth-rate grand-stander, and yet even at 4th rate he likely is a rate or more higher than most of the other grifters who surround President Grifter. There he is in his press conferences speaking on things he has absolutely no knowledge. What sane person trusts Trump on the possible success of hydroxychloroquine? What sane person trusts Trump on his ability to discern the math of the Wuhan? What sane person trusts Trump, with his limited vocabulary, to be able to finish a crossword puzzle without cheating?

I say all this as one who has defended Trump as the symbol he has been taken to be by so many on the right. Many on the right are so desperate for hope that they have turned Donald J. Trump into the symbolic embodiment of their hope. I have consistently said that ought to be respected and Trump ought to be defended at least on that level. However, when this vaunted symbol continues to act contrary to what numerous hopeful people have taken him to symbolically be then a time needs come when the spokesman of the sane turns to the symbol mongers and say … “This isn’t what you were hoping for. He is not the symbol that you take him to be and any further investing of him as a symbol reflects badly on your ability to sort reality from illusion.”

The problem though, as said earlier, is that there is nobody else surrounding Trump who isn’t on the grift any less than the Big Orange is. We are being led by a murder of clowns…. no, — wait — that is being unfair to clowns. How about we are being led by a pod of nincompoops? Still, too hard on nincompoops.

If a people are known by their leadership than there can be no doubt that our Republic deserves to die.
