40% Of Americans Support Trump. What Does That Say About Our Country?
I don’t hate Trump supporters, but I do hate what they are allowing him to do to our country. Recently I asked my followers who support Trump to unfollow me. It wasn’t an easy decision, but I got fed up with his blatant ignorance incompetence, his racist and misogynistic comments, and his total lack of empathy.
Did you see his press briefing when he attacked the NBC reporter calling him a “bad reporter” and describing his question as “nasty”! And I’ll never forget told the female reporter, “Lower your voice!”
Anyone with an ounce of intelligence can see this man doesn’t have a fucking clue about what he’s doing! He still thinks he’s hosting a Reality TV Show. This is not about ratings, Mr. President, or the stock market, it’s about saving lives!
Can you imagine what would have happened if this fiasco of not having masks and other protective medical supplies happened under The Obama Administration? These Republican’s head would have exploded!
But they’re so blinded by their devotion to this narcissist that they don’t question how we got ourselves into this coronavirus mess and that makes them just as dangerous as him.
While this virus was spreading in China, and even after the first case was confirmed in the US, Trump was still referring to the outbreak as a Democratic Hoax. What an idiot!
And as it was recently reported, Trump was receiving reports about how potentially devastating this virus would be in January, but he refused to act or even to read the briefing.
And even now, with thousands over 80,000 dead, Trump is encouraging his supporters to go back to work, as if you just turn on a light switch and everything goes back to normal overnight.
Meanwhile, Trump and Vice President Pence both have close staff members who have tested positive for the virus, even the First Lady’s assistant has tested positive. What a terrible example to set to the American public and the world!
Meanwhile, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals are sounding the alarm about a second wave! Governors from across the country were, and still are, desperately appealing to the government for help. And how did the President respond? By saying, “We’re not a shipping clerk!” What the fuck!
But no matter what he does or doesn’t do, no matter how outrageous his comments, and no matter how dangerous and self-serving his decision-making his MAGA followers support him like a band of zombies. And some have the audacity to post on my page, “He’s the greatest President we’ve ever had!” That’s when you know it’s time to cut these zombies loose!
Trump supporters are unreasonable, irrational, and delusional. I was hoping that over time they would see him for the manipulator and phony he is. This is a man whose claim to fame is licensing his name to other builders and being a reality TV show host, a show that was meant to be a spoof of a successful businessman. It’s not real people!
Trump supporters don’t care that he’s filed for bankruptcy 6 times, that he stiffed contractors in New Jersey for millions of dollars and destroyed their businesses. Or that he admitted on tape that he sexually assaults women. So, you have to ask yourself, why don’t they care?
I believe Trump personifies their deep-seated racism and misogyny. He reminds some white people of the good old days when black people were second class citizens and white women stayed at home with the kids. And for others, he represents getting over on the system. A man who hustled his way to the top, and all the people he abused and financially ruined be damned! For Trump supporters, the ends justify the means.
And why do some blacks and Latinos support him? For some of the same reasons I mentioned, but there are plenty of self-hating people of color who think the white man’s ice is colder than the black and Latinos’ man’s ice.
One thing is for sure if we don’t remove this narcissist from the office of our country will be forever changed. The corruption will be so deep we’ll never get out from under it. And if you think I’m being hyperbolic check out the series Dirty Money on Netflix. He and his son-in-law Jared Kushner are featured in two episodes, Slumlord Millionaire and The Confidence Man. You’ll see a side of Donald Trump and his family that will leave you truly terrified! Please watch!
