Why do these TV pundits ask why Trump does something…anything? Isn’t it obvious by now that whatever he does…he does because it is his nature to do it? When he tweets something that is patently false it is because it is who he is.

When he says something ignorant it is because it is who he is. When he says something inflammatory it’s because he enjoys throwing lighter fluid on a fire. When he says something combative it is because he is an insecure cowardly bully. When he says something that contradicts what he’s said previously it’s because he is shameless.

In short, Trump is an ignorant, insecure, cowardly, shameless liar, whose nature it is to provoke trouble and cause dissension.

This is his nature. He is powerless to act in any other way.

And, most seriously of all of these things, he will soon be exposed as treasonous.

  1. Surprised that I haven’t yet heard any of the pundits remark on the glaringly obvious reason why Ivanka now has an office in the White House – to try to keep her crazy ass father off the third rail. She’s apparently the only one who can attempt to do that.

  2. What continues to alarm me is that so many voters believed he could and would deliver on all his promises. He’s not going to build a wall, he’s not going to bring back the coal miners’ jobs or thousands of others, he’s not going to keep all the Muslims out of the country, and he’s already failed once to repeal and replace the ACA. He has no sense of ethics or propriety. And the Russian thing could potentially be imperiling the entire country. Yet people continue to believe him … I’m tempted to say he never really wanted to be president; he just wanted to play one on tv.

  3. The most frustrating thing is that none of the accusations seem to stick to him. Perhaps treason will bring him undone. I wait in hope.

  4. We also need to stop feeding his narcissistic mania. Stop reporting what he says. Start reporting on the effects of his actions. That should get a Tweetstorm going long enough to stop him from signing any new damaging orders. xoM

  5. I just do NOT understand how people cannot see him for who he truly is. Especially because he is the epitome of what his followers are complaining about and want to see changed. He’s going under the guise of repealing all kinds of government restrictions, bills whatever, so that he can help get the government out of our lives. What his groupies do not see is that so many of the acts/bills/etc he’s repealing are in place to protect the average American — and the planet itself that we all live in. I just don’t get it. I’d be surprised if his IQ is over 100. He really is not that bright. Bullying has helped him get to where he is (plus a shitload of his daddy’s money) and he’ll never stop.

    • Michelle, what a nice surprise – agreed…he is FAR from intelligent…judging by his use (or misuse) of our language for one thing…i think you’re correct in your assessment of his IQ. i sure hope these fools who bought his swampland realize what they have done to themselves – to the country, the world – and to us. the Russian deal will get him and let’s hope he destroys the GOP as well. it is good to hear from you and i do trust you are well and doing. i send a hug. continue…

    • Michelle, a recent incident may shed some light on your comment “What his groupies do not see is that so many of the acts/bills/etc he’s repealing are in place to protect the average American . . .”
      I have a sister who lives in Florida and is acquainted with a couple, call them Jane and John, who are ardent Trump supporters and my sister tried to engage them in a discussion of recent events, Jane had no idea who Michael Flynn is; John said the name sounded vaguely familiar. Bottom line: don’t look for Trump’s groupies to ‘see’ anything, anytime soon. Our only hope is to make sure that every person with at least one-half of a human brain turns out to vote in 2018 and 2020.

  6. The pundits are taking him seriously, as if there’s a ” deep ” reason why he’s acting irrationally. It’s like false equivalency.
