I have re-read the opinion piece published yesterday in the Times several times now and I am NOT comforted by the fact that “there are adults in the room.” Honestly, I have been in a fight or flight stress response since Trump won the Presidency and I am petrified, appalled, and shocked almost daily by his words, actions and TWEETS. So, if this is supposed to be a subdued or controlled Trump, then this is FAR worse then we ever imagined. This is a CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS.
Separating children from their parents.
Keeping them in cages and Nazi-style camps.
Holding them hostage for a strong immigrant bill and a Fucking RIDICULOUS Wall!
Removing US from UN Human Rights Council so we can stand with North Korea and Russia.
The world is appalled by the human rights violations happening in America.
Most Americans (don’t let me get started on the asshats who are sticking to, “but did they come here legally”) appalled and outraged over human right violations happening HERE.
Never in my lifetime would I imagine anything like this happening in America.
Are we FUCKING great yet? ENOUGH!
A foreign power helping to elect an illegitimate President, a foreign power that we have a strong negative history with. Collusion with that foreign power.
Immigration policies that spark outrage around the world when he first gets into office.
Damaging all partnerships and relationships with strong allies. Coddling and stroking egos with dangerous leaders, dictators, and fascists.
Planning to separate children at border from the BEGINNING (Thanks, C + Santa Monica Fascist Stephen Miller) and blaming it past administrations, Democrats and FAKE NEWS.
I am mad. Are you? He is holding us all hostage and who is going to save us now?
Ask yourself, what does he want. If the answer does not scare the crap out of you, you aren’t paying attention.
We have an illegitimate President who has done NOTHING about the Russian interference in the 2016 election…I wonder why?
For all the people out there who have turned the events of last weekend into a defense of history or beautiful statues, you need to check yourself. What is next out of your mouth, “I have plenty of black/jewish friends.”
One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?
Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which thing just doesn’t belong?
If you guessed this one is not like the others,
Then you’re absolutely…right!
The $hit Show continues and Trump continues to push the chaos theory of change to unprecedented limits. How far can he go? Oh, I think we may find out before this is all over. After his lack-luster “world tour” that only highlighted his incompetency for all to see. The idea that Trump is a joke took root on an international level. His feelings were hurt BIGLY during the last portion of his trip when world leaders did not kowtow to him. Let’s just say his agenda of “America First” did not go over well on the international stage…SHOCKER.
After the world swooned over Macron’s purposeful hand-shake, which was a public smack down, Trump was rumored to be infuriated. Macron described it as a moment of truth, a show of strength. It is well known that Trump uses this posturing to establish dominance so Macron just played to his level.
“My handshake with him, it’s not innocent,” Macron told the Journal du Dimanche in an interview published Sunday. “It’s not the alpha and the omega of politics, but a moment of truth (1).”
Was it all about the handshake? NO. Trump felt snubbed on every level. What did Trump expect after publicly berating leaders during his inappropriate and awkward NATO speech that went over like a lead balloon. The world was hoping Trump would reaffirm his commitment to mutual defense of NATO members and allies, article 5. Rumor has it Trump deviated from his planned speech and surprised even those closest to him when he did not reaffirm his commitment to the article 5 provision (2). We know when Trump goes off script it usually goes well…..Yeah, right. Why consult your National security adviser, McMaster, Defense Secretary, Mattis, or Secretary of State, Tillerson–What do they know? Did it make them and the rest of the US look like idiots? Sure did, but President Bannon has an agenda, folks, and it is clear he is pulling the strings.
Merkel and other leaders have made-pretend long enough. The US is being lead by a buffoon and there is no way to disguise that fact anymore. OUR EMPEROR IS NAKED and now other leaders are calling him out.
Merkel publicly spoke out against the US change in NATO policy and this is a direct rebuttal to Trump, “the times in which we could rely fully on others — they are somewhat over (3)” she declared. Yup, the US cannot be relied upon.
Has Trump been on his best behavior since returning back to the US? HELL NO!
He began tweeting the minute he returned to US soil and those of us who were enjoying the respite from that public humiliation once again got that pit in our stomachs. Recognizing the President is a lunatic and is likely to cause a major catastrophe because of his love of twitter is a hard pill to swallow. I don’t have time to highlight all the ridiculousness but I will give you my TOP 3 STUPID TWEETS from the last week:
- Announcing his decision to pull the US from the Paris Climate Accord as if it was a reality show (only one of 3 countries in the world who now does not participate-Syria does not participate because it is in the middle of a war and Nicaragua did not participate because they felt the Paris Agreement did not go far enough in protecting the environment). Yes, he voted the US off the planet. Why? Because that handshake was embarrassing.
- Using his own tweets against him in court must feel so wonderful. How is the Department of Justice supposed to defend his travel restrictions in front of the Supreme Court now…I really love how dumb he is.
- Terrorist attacks on foreign soil and leaders around the world sent love and support. Not Trump. What a pathetic excuse for a person.
We need a leader, folks. This guy has got to go. James Comey you better have something good for us Thursday. PLEASE!

Trump announced yesterday on—-wait for it, wait for it—twitter [I know, you are not even shocked anymore] that he will decide today whether he will pull the US out of the Paris Agreement.
What is the Paris Accord? Think of it as a signed statement that your country believes in climate change/global warming and is committed to helping to save the planet.
Will Paris get the rose? Will the US be voted off the EARTH? I guess we will find out.
