Sympathy for the Devil

I almost feel sorry for him… day after day, speech after speech, meeting after meeting and tweet after tweet… people still support him ~ those same people who wore the red hats and flooded the internet spreading fake news ~ they are standing tall by their man.  Billing himself as the only one who could come in and ‘save’ our country, he was (and probably still is) looked at as the Messiah. I recall reading  and hearing his supporters  speak about Trump being the choice of God.  How frightening for them to think that God was really not in charge of our election but actually a narcissistic loose cannon and his helpful Russian friends (whether he knew it or not).  Trump is spiraling out of control, digging his hole deeper by the day, and alienating our global friends. Most every day we can hear him speaking the alternate truth.  Watching Trump’s presidency is like watching a train wreck or a singer perform who can’t carry a tune… cringing, I watch, through my finger, shaking my head…  I almost feel sorry for him because he is making himself and our country look like a fool…. and a man in his 70’s should behave with more dignity and speak with more care…

Impeachment? I don’t think it will happen…. but I can hope…

People say that everything is either a gift or a lesson…. well, America?  Have we learned our lesson yet?  If so, it is time to move on and do better next time.

  1. @SympathyfortheDevil: Trump might get himself impeached. In the long run, that might be worse for the US. It would mean Pence. And Pence is a homophobic misogynistic but politically astute extreme conservative who might shepherd through the Republican agenda and win in 2020. Be more afraid of the devil you don’t know than the devil you know.


    1. True… only time will tell… the opposition must continue to resist and organize… we still have to live through the next 3 1/2 + years cringing and shaking our heads… if his campaign is truly guilty perhaps just being on the same ticket will be enough to say that both of them are out? The whole thing is just too much.


      1. It’s an ugly prospect. First comes Pence, then Ryan, than Orin Hatch, then Rex Tillerson. (I never thought I’d hope for Orin Hatch to become president, perhaps the least cut-throat and most sane of the lot!). One flaw in our version of representative democracy is that there is no one to call for a vote of confidence for the party in power or an unscheduled national election. Unless something radical and unprecedented, we will be faced with shitty policies and shitty logic for 3 1/2 years. It is up to us to make sure it doesn’t happen beyond that. Thanks for your blog. I love it.
