Trump may think his 36% approval rating — the lowest of any president in at least seven decades — is “not bad,” but the rest of us realize that he’s basically the presidential equivalent of the video game “No Man’s Sky” — He promised a lot but is “worthless in every way.”
While mindless Trump supporters, Russian Twitter bots, and Fox News work overtime to spin his many, many, many failures as successes, a major Texas newspaper said f*ck all that and just listed a whole bunch of Trump’s failures neatly categorized so that even the most deplorable “Deplorable” can figure out what a massive tool Trump is.
“President Donald Trump’s first six months have been defined by his often angry and tasteless tweets, his ham-handed efforts to denigrate and undercut the multiple investigations into Russian influence in the 2016 election and the stalemated legislative battle to repeal and replace Obamacare,” the article notes, adding that The Donald is “right” that he has “significantly influenced the government and the nation’s image.” Much of that impact, however, has been “negative.”
Here are just some of The Donald’s ‘accomplishments’ outlined by the Dallas News:
-Committed potentially impeachable offenses of obstructing justice that prompted appointment of a Special Counsel by firing FBI Director James Comey, because of his probe into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia, and urging other intelligence officials to pressure Comey to halt the probe.
-Undermined the courts with denunciations of judges and their decisions affecting his administration’s policies, especially those curbing his hastily issued ban on Muslim travel from certain countries.
-Without evidence, accused former President Barack Obama of illegally wiretapping his phones.
-Repeatedly misrepresented his administration’s policies and trashed officials with whom he has disagreements, calling the ousted Comey “a nut job,” Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer the “head clown” and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi an “incompetent.”
-Intensified racial and other divisions by reducing governmental civil rights guarantees and reversing protections for sexual and racial minorities.
-Violated his own self-proclaimed ethics laws by allowing officials to deal with issues affecting their former employers. Permitted multiple instances in which he and other family members benefit financially from his presidency.
-Waged a vendetta against news outlets subjecting his administration to scrutiny, calling the mainstream media the “enemy of the American people” and denouncing unfavorable stories as “fake news.” Undercut White House press institutions intended to facilitate dialogue between the presidency and the public.
The result, the Dallas News correctly notes, is “the least support for any new modern president, an exacerbation of domestic divisions, and unprecedented global disdain and embarrassment.”
Trump is indeed an “embarrassment.” In fact, it would be safer to describe him as a “nightmare.”
At this point, we must wonder what it will take for Republicans to put aside their “party over country” mentality and wake us up by removing him from office.
