Blessed are the stupid: for they have inherited the United States.
Lately I wonder, why do I care? Caring is thankless. So many Americans have no idea what is happening, and are happy as such. Some voted for Donald Trump, of course without putting much thought into it. Half of the eligible voters avoided the polls altogether on that day when Vladimir Putin hijacked our democracy by way of Dotard Trump.
That a buffoon like Donald Trump is in the White House is proof, only a fraction of us take elections seriously. Why do I care?
How many among us have lately, or ever, read objective material? Do those who watch Fox ever think to confirm it’s veracity?
A tyrant with an orange patina heads our democracy, and he brazenly claims to be above the law.
Donald Trump’s lead attourney John Dowd, tells us— president Donald Trump “can not obstruct justice” because he heads the justice system. This idea is a threat to democracy. If Dowd really believes that, why does he feel the need to claim authorship of Trump’s most damning tweet to date?
If Dowd had indeed penned that particular tweet, why would he advance the fallacy that a president can not obstruct justice?
Does anyone believe Trump’s attorney is up at all hours composing nonsense on his client’s behalf.
If Trump did, as the tweet claims, fire Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI, and then asked FBI director James Comey to “”let the Flynn thing go,” then Donald Trump obstructed justice— as he did when he fired Comey because he wanted the Russia investigation to stop.
Mr Dowd must be paid well, because his legal career may end with Trump, as will the Republican Party.
Trump not only claims he can not obstruct justice, he believes he is above every law—
- He shrugs off sexual assault accusations.
- He says tax evasion makes him smart.
- He decides whether or not a pedophile is innocent, because he needs his vote in the senate.
- He profits from his position, because the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, (which restricts government officials from receiving gifts, emoluments, offices or titles from foreign states without consent of Congress), does not apply to him… he says.
If only stupid people realized they were stupid, there might not be dotards in politics, nor would there be evangelicals claiming religion… But why do I care?
