What I think about Donald Trump

Recommended Posts

I'm putting this here because I can't swear in other groups.

Now let me admit that at first, not knowing a helluva lot about the guy, I had some hopes here. I have a vast disrespect for professional politicians, especially in the US, because most of them are political whores. I thought, yeah, an outsider, a billionaire who didn't need to be beholden to special interests, who could bring a fresh attitude to things, that could be really good!

I'm not politically correct. Most of what Trump said that pissed off the media and liberals didn't bother me. I like the idea of far stronger fencing along the Mexican border, if not an actual wall along the ENTIRE distance. I'm a conservative. I believe in securing borders. No problem with me.

I think I first began to doubt the wisdom of Trump as president was when I started reading about how he conducted his business. Basically, he did his best to cheat everyone involved, from suppliers to partners to customers. And he was a guy who sued people all the time, and got sued a lot himself. He basically sued anyone who criticized him.

The next thing I read was about how he went bankrupt with his casinos. Basically he got into the casino business and started building them without doing the slightest research. No businessman does that. You need to know what your expenses will be along with your likely revenue. Trump didn't bother. He went bananas furnishing his casinos with the most expensive stuff he could find, wanting to cater to the cream of the crop of gamblers. Problem is the cream of the crop has no interest in going to Atlantic city in the winter. So someone in the industry did a study based on publicly available information on how much he was spending, how much he would owe, how much he'd have to pay for staff, utilities, etc., and then fed in the normal intake expected for hotels and casinos (per foot revenue) in Atlantic city. What he said was that the casinos would start going into a deep hole once the fall hit. Trump found out and threatened to sue the company, forcing them to fire him. But the guy was 100% accurate in everything he wrote. Trump, the moron, had built two incredibly expensive casinos that you could fire a cannon through in the winter.

His airline was the same thing. No research, no studies. He went on his 'gut'. Same with so many other of his enterprises that went under.

How he treated his wives didn't go over well with me either. Things like calling a radio station and pretending to be his publicist to brag about his sexual prowess with his then mistress. Or seating his mistress (who everyone knew was his mistress) at the same table as his wife at a public event. He loved to humiliate his wife because he wanted to force her to divorce him.

Basically, what I took from all the stuff I read was that Trump was both a shitty businessman and a scumbag.

Then came the election, then came him as president. Holy fuck. I didn't expect much but I had no idea just how ignorant this guy was. I mean, how anyone can grow up rich in Manhattan and know nothing about virtually EVERYTHING is beyond me. Not only is he astonishingly ignorant but he's also, as many have testified "incurious', ie, he has no interest in learning. He reads nothing. He won't take briefings that are more than a few minutes long. He considers himself to be smarter than his generals and more knowledgeable than his intelligence people. He knows nothing about government, the military, or the world outside Manhattan real estate. If you pulled a bumpkin with a grade 3 education out of a corn patch in the most rural part of Iowa and put him in the oval office he'd still be more knowledgeable than Trump. And at least he'd be willing to take advise.

Trump is, without question, the dumbest fuck ever to enter the Oval Office. And I don't just mean presidents. I mean no one in the history of America has even entered that room who was as pig-ignorant as Donald Fucking Trump. Even the cleaning staff are smarter!

Add to this he's a mean spirited bully, narcissist, rapacious, money grubbing greedhead, whore-mongering serial adulterer, compulsive liar, braggart and coward and you've got a man with almost every character defect imaginable. I cannot think of a single positive character trait this man owns.

Now saying this does not suggest I am blind to the defects of Hillary Clinton and the identity politics democrats. But I can at least find some good things to say about most of them. There's nothing honest anyone can say about Trump that's positive. He's scum. He's vermin. The world will be a cleaner place when he exits it. And they'll probably need a 24 hour guard on his grave to keep legions of people from using it as a toilet.

This latest business in Syria where he got hundreds of people killed and basically gave Turkey what it's been demanding for years, and is now bragging about it like he's accomplished some mighty deed is a perfect example. He is a simplistic fuckwit that the world's strongmen have no difficulty twisting around their little fingers. It got people killed in Ukraine and it's gotten people killed in Syria. And this glutinous, brainless shit stain of a man, who works maybe an hour and a half a day, continues to stuff burgers down his fat throat, slurp coke, and jab his puffy little fingers onto his keypad to whine about how hard-done-by he is.

And the fact he's managed to surround himself with a group of grifters, liars, cheats, kooks, and suckups, and that the entire Republican caucus kisses his ass, just goes to show how morally bankrupt that party has become.
