Chaos ( kay-os) n. great disorder or confusion.
That is certainly the state of affairs here in America right now. Great disorder and confusion. I would love to make this a light hearted or funny post, but there really is nothing light hearTed or funny about our current “situation”.
Trump, his tiny hands and unfiltered mouth have gotten us into some real shit buckets in only a mere two weeks in office. And Bannon, his chief advisor and puppet master is probably more to blame than you think. The Nazi bastard is really the one pulling the strings. We are not being fooled, we know that they both have equal parts in this debacle.
I am 55 years old. The first president that I remember with any detail in my life was Nixon. I was too young to vote when he was running for the office, but I was in 5th grade and we did a class election type of thing. We made our individual choices for who we wanted elected and then we made up campaigns, gave speeches and followed the election in the newspaper every day. Newspapers were the main source of news back in the 70’so when this was going on, oh those were the days. I, in my ignorant youthfulness chose Nixon as my candidate. I hadon’t to make up a nice binder of information on him, his stances on the issues and the major issues that would be facing him as president. History tells us that the Vietnam War and abortion were two of those huge issues. Of course history also tells us that he won, he pulled us out of Vietnam and Roe vs, Wade happened….then, to make a long story short, he got himself impeached.
My point in telling that little story was to basically say I have seen enough presidents, witnessed the good and the bad of quite a few – both Democrats and Republicans. But never NEVER have I witnessed someone like Trump – I suppose NO ONE HAS. He has brought us into completely uncharted territories. A billionaire with a horrible financial track record, a reality TV personality, and a severe narcissist. This man is dabbling on the side of being so consumed with himself and his great need for approval and love that he is endangering the integrity of our country in every waye possible. I do not predict a good outcome for him. He has had to vacation every weekend since he tooknows office to his place in Florida. Rumor has it that he’s not having very much fun being in charge, he is preoccupied by watching television news programs and complaining about all of the protests. He’s not going to be in office for long, mark my words. He can’t handle this kind of job, the pressure or the duties.
Our White House has become a tomb of secrecy. Melania, his wife – whom he has not even referred to as First Lady – won’t even live there. She would much rather be in her golden palace in NYC or down inow their mansion in Florida. She sees the White House as peasants quarters. I bet you won’t hear much from her at all, ever. For him to allow her to speak her own mind would go against his need to control her. This guy hates women and thinks we are second class citizens. But remember this is a golden spoon fed, sheltered old white man who wants to take everything backwards to the 50s.
The elderly Cheeto held a press conference yesterday, a first for him since he took office. He jabbered on for 84 minutes, blathering about how great he is and how he is the best thing to EVER happen to America since the invention of the light bulb. He got caught lying about the numbers of his electoral college win, and tried desperately to blame it on someone else. He trash talked the media, claiming that any media outlet that isn’t singing his praises daily is “fake news”, which goes along with his idea of “alternative facts”. The guy isn’t being represented well in media because he is secretive, doesn’t give the media access to himself or his cronies, thus they have to rely on inside sources (which Trump calls “leaks”). The media reports on things and Trump will swear they didn’t happen – the Flynn resignation is one shining example of that.
It has become very infuriating to watch the Cheeto talk at all. His command of the English language is pathetic, he just can’t always put good sentences together. And he is constantly complimenting himself; patting himself on the back and boasting about how great he is. Problem with this is that he BELIEVES all his own rhetoric. One day he is going to get taken down a few notches and he will crumble under the shame.
What do people from other countries think about this “president” that we somehow elected here? I would love to hear foreign opinions. Peace. ~MB
