When it comes to verbalizing exactly how most sane people feel about Donald Trump, it comes down to the fact that there really aren’t enough expletives to get your point across. He’s as horrific as a person as he is a leader and has absolutely no place being near the Oval Office.
One paper, a German paper called Der Spiegel, has perfectly put into words how most sane Americans, nay, the world, feels about Trump. The author is Klaus Brinkbäumer, and the man is a damn genius.
The article is titled “It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump” — “A Danger to the World.” Saying:
“Donald Trump has transformed the United States into a laughing stock and he is a danger to the world. He must be removed from the White House before things get even worse.”
Something the majority of Americans, seeing as Trump overwhelmingly lost the popular vote, agree with.
The article begins by saying:
“Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it. He doesn’t read. He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.”
But hold onto your underoos, that’s just the beginning. Brinkbäumer continues:
“He is a man free of morals. As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump. And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly. He is a danger to the world.”
“Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said. He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries). Trump tweeted: Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all.”
The article goes on from there with a skillful and articulate criticism, but the final paragraph deserves a damn Pulitzer. Brinkbäumer wrote:
“In “Game of Thrones,” the Mad King was murdered (and the child that later took his place was no better). In real life, an immature boy sits on the throne of the most important country in the world. He could, at any time, issue a catastrophic order that would immediately be carried out. That is why the parents cannot afford to take their eyes off him even for a second. They cannot succumb to exhaustion because he is so taxing. They ultimately have to send him to his room – and return power to the grownups.”
Bravo, Klaus Brinkbäumer, you are one-hundred and ten percent correct in your summation of that buffoon of a man.
