What did Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America great again” actually mean? It was a confusing statement for me because I couldn’t find a time in history when things were greater for ALL Americans. Judging from “President” Trump’s appointments, actions and words, it’s crystal clear his slogan meant MAKE WHITE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Donald Trump’s attacks on Meryl Streep are frightening. They expose an insecure, intolerant, egomaniac in the form of a “President- elect.” Trump will severely damage the dysfunctional GOP who produced the toxicity that allowed for Trump’s assendancey. Let’s pray Trump doesn’t irrevocably damage America.
I am really going to miss President Obama. He was a man filled with grace and dignity. As a President, he was thoughtful, articulate, reasoned, measured, and nuanced. He made me proud to be an American.
72 years ago, as you were beginning your life, the Battle of the Bulge began. It was the bloodiest battle of WW II. American losses: 19,000 killed, 47,000 wounded, 23,000 missing. You need to get a lot smarter, get off Twitter, develop some impulse control, become more nuanced, value America’s Intelligence Community, and get “briefed” daily. If you don’t, you just may lead America into conflicts far bloodier than the Battle of the Bulge.
America can’t deny bigotry in all its shapes and sizes was at the fundamental base of Trump’s Presidential campaign. The worst thing our GREAT nation could do is to normalize it.
When you’re not adequately prepared for the job, bad things happen. Trust me I know this from a very personal perspective. Trump does’nt seem capable of managing the transition from campaign to actual governing. Thank you New York Times for your report and lead headline, “Firings and discord put Trump transition team in a state of dissary.”
- Words matter. During the Presidential campaign, Donald Trump used such hateful, divisive, racist, grotesque and dangerous language that his ugly words will resonate forever. He wasn’t fit to be President before November 8; he is no more fit today. Trump has revealed that the Republican party is truly despicable and dysfunctional.
