I had said I was taking a day off from commentary, and will write in greater detail tomorrow, but I felt a need to comment just before midnight on Inauguration Day, so here goes!
Donald Trump in just 12 hours has made clear just how nasty, mean spirited, and lacking in compassion he really is!
He claims that he is in the White House for the average American, but he has painted a picture of America which is very dark, very pessimistic, and very lacking in truth.
He claims there is a “carnage” that has gone on, even though Barack Obama presided over more employment gains than any President in history, and starting from a economic disaster known as the Great Recession, and in danger of falling further into another Great Depression!
He claims concern for mothers and children in the “ghettos” in the cities, but has never once indicated what he will do.
He declares “America First” without any understanding of the history of that term.
He has no knowledge or understanding of history or science, as he declares war on the environment, with lack of concern for our children and grandchildren by putting profits ahead of health and safety in the future.
He is basically telling our allies in Europe and Asia to go to hell, and promoting isolationism, protectionism, super nationalism bordering on Fascism.
He talks about America being great again, when it already is, but is willing to destroy all progress accomplished under his predecessor, who he spent five years destroying, and now will put the final nails in the 44th President’s legacy.
He says he cares about the “forgotten people”, but he is taking steps to harm these same people, including many who voted for him.
How can this man sleep at night, have no conscience, and be almost gleeful at destroying all of the great social and economic progress from Theodore Roosevelt to Barack Obama?
It as if the devil is in him, Satan in a way, a man with no ethics, morals, or scruples.
One has to believe in divine retribution in the next world, or “what goes around, comes around”–Karma!
