Trump is showing more and more each day why he is absolutely not fit for the office of President. His latest Tweetism is slamming Rep. John Lewis, D-GA, after Mr. Lewis told Chuck Todd on Meet the Press that he though that Trump was “illegimtimate”. That interview will be featured this Sunday. I guess the Orange One didn’t realize that there are some people one simply does not trash. He claimed that all Rep. Lewis does is “talk, talk, talk.” Um no. The Representative has marched, been beaten, and has bled for the civil rights of the disenfranchised in this country. The Orange One, on the other hand, was trying to keep African Americans from renting in his properties. Reaction was swift on Twitter, and not just from Jane and John Q. Public. It was also from politicians, both Democrats and Republicans. To think that this blustering barrel of bulls**t will be taking the oath of office in less than a week is enough to make one weep — or want to throw crockery at the wall (or at his face).

STlogoThis week’s big news was the report from the 17 agencies concerned with national security, finding with “high confidence” that Russia had indeed hacked the U.S. election in November. And how did NMP Trump react? Well, by blaming the DNC and Democrats, of course! After all, his buddy Putin would never do something like that to the U.S.! How dare anyone even suggest that?

My reaction to this is two-fold: 1) Why is Trump trying to cover for Putin? We know that Russia also hacked the RNC, but didn’t throw what they found at Julian Assange so he could blast it all over Wikileaks. I bet they found some juicy stuff on Trump and other Republians, so in exchange for their thundering silence on the hacking, Russia says they will not spill the beans. (And if they really believe that, well, they are even dumber than I thought they were.0

2) I do not want to hear another word from them OR their supporters about how they are “better Americans” than those of us on the left. I am no fan of jingoism, but flawed as she is, I am a fan of this country. To ignore this report and it’s implications; well, that tells me a lot of what I need to know bout those so-called “red-blooded ‘Mericuns.” It tells me you would rather win at all costs, regardless of the harm that may come to this country. It tells me that no matter how may flags they adorn their pick-em-up trucks with, or how many pairs of flag underwear they have, they and their “love” for this country are a sham.
