When I started this series I soon decided to see how long it would take to get to 100. As it turns out, 395 days since his inauguration. Of course I could have arrived far sooner, because we’re talking Trump, here. I’ve never gone out of my way to find items. I just use what pops up in daily/weekly email updates from a bunch of sources, the majority but by no means all progressive. As a matter of fact doing the whole thing has been pretty much effortless.
This takes a hard look, based on current information, at whether Pr*sident Donald Trump really is traitorous filth. It’s by James Risen, and does not play fast and loose with the evidence. Quite the contrary.
I find it hard to write about Donald Trump.
It is not that he is a complicated subject. Quite the opposite. It is that everything about him is so painfully obvious. He is a low-rent racist, a shameless misogynist, and an unbalanced narcissist. He is an unrelenting liar and a two-bit white identity demagogue. Lest anyone forget these things, he goes out of his way each day to remind us of them.
At the end of the day, he is certain to be left in the dustbin of history, alongside Father Coughlin and Gen. Edwin Walker. (Exactly – you don’t remember them, either.)
What more can I add?
Unfortunately, another word also describes him: president. The fact that such an unstable egomaniac occupies the White House is the greatest threat to the national security of the United States in modern history.
Which brings me to the only question about Donald Trump that I find really interesting: Is he a traitor?
