Trump in the trees

  1. Just a little north of me there is a residence that backs up to my street with a brick wall. Initially there were two Trunp yard signs on the street outside the brick wall.Then I noticed just one sign. Then I noticed the remaining sign was flat on its face.Now Trump signs are hanging from the trees above the brick wall.My assumption is the resident wanted to get the signs away from medling hands.But it’s a disturbing sight. After a guest (who happens to be African American) arrived at my house, he said, “One of your neighbors is LYNCHING TRUMP!”

History should teach usĀ 

I just watched a PBS show on the Nixon presidency .I was struck by how similar Trump appears to be to Richard Nixon .Nixon was much smarter than Donald Trump. Nixon had significantly more political and governmental experience than Trump -but the two seem to share some disturbing personality traits. Nixon’s paranoia and insecurities led to his demise. Trump is clearly an egomaniac and a bully. He displays extreme ADD behavior. He is prickly, thin skinned and aggressive. This nation didn’t fully know or appreciate the fragile, problematic,  and destructive nature of Nixon’s mental condition  before electing him to the presidency .The nation knows first hand of Trump’s  fragile, problematic, and dangerous mental condition and as a result will never give him the keys to the Oval Office.

How can Trump be more out of touch, inarticulate and dangerously wrong?

TRUMP AT THE SEAN HANNITY/FOX NEWS TOWN HALL Yesterday- “Q: There’s been a lot of violence in the black community. I wanted to know what you would do to help stop that violence, black-on-black crime.’ TRUMP : Right. Well one of the things I’d do is I would do stop and frisk. I think you have to. We did it in New York, it worked incredibly well. And you have to be proactive. And you know you really help people sort of change their mind automatically. I see what’s going on here, I see what’s going on in Chicago in New York City it was so incredibly, the way it worked. Now, we had a very good mayor. But New York City was incredible the way it worked. So I think that would be one step you could do.”

Millennials may not be inspired by HRC; but she is a far better fit for them than Trump

“In interviews with many of her (Hillary’s) millennial supporters, especially the former Sanders revolutionaries, they talked about her in the could-be-worse tone they might use to describe a boring but socially appropriate romantic partner. They used words like ‘capable,’ ‘well-informed,’ ‘responsible,’ and ‘qualified.’ They dutifully praised her positions on issues like abortion, student debt, mass incarceration, and climate change, while emphasizing the importance of stopping Trump and his inflammatory rhetoric.” – Michael Grunwald
