44 presidents preceded the vindictive bully who occupies the White House today. Trump is fallaciously described with terms including “unusual,” and “different.” What he is in reality is a traitor to his country and a danger to the future of 330 million Americans.
It continues to be a conundrum for me that Trump has a single supporter after three years of anti-American actions and personal attacks on loyal Americans. He is the antithesis of the 44 men who wore the title of President of the United States before 2017. He is unfit to continue his pretense of being our nation’s leader. DJT is not concerned about America’s future, he is more interested in increasing his personal income.
Trump has been impeached by the House and nothing can change the fact that he is only the third president in our nation’s history to be convicted of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” A partisan effort in the senate allowed him to remain in office although the evidence against him was overwhelming.
Instead of attempting to retain a semblance of dignity and respect for the rule of law, your illegitimate president immediately began taking revenge on the men and women who told the truth. To claim Trump has no class is ludicrous; he is unworthy of his claim to be a human being. No politician in history displayed such contempt for the rule of law and the process which required his impeachment.
Trump is a petty, old, and mentally deficient man who has no right to claim his role of President. He is unqualified, unfit, and possesses inadequate intelligence to lead a nation of 330 million people. Any man or woman who claims to be a Republican and continues to support DJT is a liar and a hypocrite. Every member of congress is required to take the oath of office which demands their promise to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.” With the exception of Mitt Romney, 52 Republican senators violated their oath and ignored a preponderance of evidence which required the removal of Trump from the White House.
Trump’s focus on vengeance is another offer of proof that he is unfit to remain in office. He is a disgrace to the rule of law and to the 44 men who preceded him. Even Richard Nixon displayed patriotism to his nation and resigned before the impeachment process was completed.
