Washington Post reporter and Watergate legend Bob Woodard's book about Trump comes out September 11th. I ordered it yesterday from my Amazon prime account.
In the book he confirms what we all know (and yes, even hard core base Trump supporters), that Trump is idiot and has the understanding of a
"fifth or sixth grader", which to me insults fifth and sixth graders.
I don't like to post these political rants to my blog and believe it or not I do restrain myself, but I have to admit I worry every day about the state of our country. Trump is not competent to be president of the United States. Trump isn't competent to hold any political office. Trump is a con man and everyone knows it. Even his supporters know that fact but they don't care. Forget them. They'll never change because they're on the Trump Train.
What really concerns me is that our system of government has totally broken down. The Republican controlled Congress has given Trump a pass on his criminality. They have put their own selfish interests (holding on to power, tax cuts, and packing the courts with Republican judges) over the welfare and safety of the country.
Another concern I have and something that really saddens me is the discovery that so many of my friends and neighbors who I like and respect, are blind to Trump's incompetence and criminality and yes, his traitorous activity in sucking up to Russian president Vladimir Putin.
Yesterday I was talking to an old friend that I went to college with. I haven't talked to him for years. He called me to check on the status of our mutual prostate cancer situation. He also told me that he and his wife were considering moving to Delaware from Pennsylvania (to get away from the high Pennsylvania taxes of course) and would like my advice which I am glad to give. During our course of conversation I mentioned I was listening to the Trump nominated Kavanaugh hearings on TV. During the conversation I found out that Rich (his name) supported Trump. My immediate feeling was one of sadness and disappointment because I always considered Rich intelligent and reasonable. I have to admit I am baffled how anyone could support Trump. Hillary is gone so it can't be Hillary Hate. I know Rich and he's not one of those people who got freaked out because a black man was in the White House for eight years. So I just don't understand.
Last night I was so tired that I didn't even stay up late enough watch Rachel and Lawrence on MSNBC. I woke up in a sweat about 1:30 am. I managed to get back to sleep and got up at my regular time at quarter to seven this morning. I'm still exhausted. I wonder is my exhaustion is caused by the current peril our country is in because of Trump and crazy town?
I feel that eventually this horrible situation our country is in because of Trump will right itself. They may have to take Trump out of the White House in handcuffs because you know Trump won't go willingly. I have no fear of the Trump supporters rioting. That element has always been in this country.
I don't know how long this will take. The first step in the removal of Trump from office will began after the fall mid term elections. I'll be in Philadelphia that week with my very good friend and Canadian Travel Buddy Pat. Hope this year will be vastly different form 2016 when I arrived in Philadelphia prepared to celebrate my birthday the day after the election of Trump to the presidency of the United States. Of course I didn't celebrate. That year was perhaps the worst birthday I've ever had. And this nightmare has continued for the past two years.
This year I hope is different. I cannot imagine any other scenario. I hope and pray (and I don't pray) that I live long enough to see Trump and (yes) even his kids (including Ivanka) in prison. Now that would be a birthday present and proof that NO ONE is above the law.
Trump has been breaking the law for his whole adult life. That folks is about to come to an end.
