Nearly one-half of all Trump’s original White House staff has resigned or been fired. Those who remain are the least qualified men and women to ever hold positions in a presidential administration.
Beginning at the top, we have learned many things about your illegitimate president. Most significantly is the fact that his intelligence level is below average, while his ego is larger than his humongous derriere. He refuses to discuss his actions with anyone else and has caused enormous damage to America and its reputation around the world my making decision unilaterally. The world is a far more dangerous place with the orange man-child living in the White House. Trump has been proven to be the leader of white supremacy in America. His level of bigotry has never been seen before.
The stories about Trump being a draft dodger have been confirmed. His father, Fred, purchased deferments from a doctor residing in one of his real estate properties.
From words that come from his own mouth and tweets from his tiny thumbs, we can claim that his diploma from Wharton was also purchased by Fred Trump. No man or woman who earned a degree from one of America’s most prestigious universities or colleges could have such a poor ability to use the English language. He cannot spell; his sentences are often incoherent. His lack of knowledge about everything is alarming. Therefore, it should be no surprise that the men and women who work for him are also lacking in intelligence levels required to run the most powerful and richest nation in the world.
We have all watched as William Barr fumbled and failed as our nation’s Attorney General. Mike Pence is a puppet without an intelligent thought of his own. Stephen Miller is an extremist who has no ideas; he simply regurgitates white supremist ideology. Mick Mulvaney proves by his own words that he in incompetent and uninformed. The worst of all is Mike Pompeo.
The Secretary of State is required to be our nation’s foremost diplomat and fully informed about the actions and plans of every foreign nation in the world. Pompeo does not possess and refuses to learn either of these abilities.
Trump and Pompeo continue to claim that the reason for assassinating Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was based on “imminent threats” to Americans overseas. Tuesday morning Pompeo was questioned about what those “imminent threats” might be. Instead of answering the question, he destroyed the very meaning of “imminent” by referring to the past.
“We know what happened at the end of last year and ultimately led to the death of an American. If you are looking for imminence, look no further than the days that led up to the strike.”
Can Pompeo actually be that stupid? His lack of an ability to communicate logically and clearly proves that his diplomatic skills are non-existent. His job has only a single responsibility; to repeat Trump’s lies and attempt to make them believable. He’s not good at his job.
As I grew up in the old America, I believed that the individuals in control of our nation, especially our president, had two important and necessary qualities; their intellect was above average, and their love of country was unquestioned. Neither of those is true in the Trump administration.
Finally, it literally frightens me to know that I am smarter that everyone who is working in the White House today. The fact that I am logical and continue to be loyal to the people of America proves this fact and it is unacceptable.
