President is an embarrassment

26

The word “Trumpian” is now in our lexicon, whether we like it or not. For little more than a year, we continue to hear the president use campaign phrases when speaking through Twitter or in person.

It is easy to predict his simpleton vocabulary, and one can complete his sentences without effort because he makes no effort.

Everything is going to be “bigger, better and more fantastic than ever before.” He shows his limited empathy by using the word “special,” evident in addressing people and things that he appears to care less about. “Very nice things” are constantly said about him by world leaders and others whom he deems special.

It was sadly horrific when he used that word while trying to honor World War II Native American code encryptors. As usual, he looked and sounded ridiculous. He has redefined the word “fake,” using it in describing the press and those who do not share his beliefs.

Not in my wildest dreams would I have believed that I would be so embarrassed for and by the president of the United States. Unfortunately, we will continue to be assaulted by his meaningless phrases and terms that make no sense, whatever the context. It is clear that he will not like the word “impeachment,” but as I close my eyes and think of a word he would use with it, “fake” comes to mind, while the word “special” may not. But “special” does describe the inevitability.

Talk about embarrassing.

    From a lifetime of cheating people and getting his own way all the time, we have created a monster. The worst part of all are the simpletons who fall for his false pretense. Consider that it’s been determined that in the first eight months of his presidency, he has spoken at least 1004 out right lies. Proven by several independent fact checking agencies.
    He is an embarrassment to the American people but even more embarrassing are the individuals who support his idiocy………..

            Poll: Trump favorability declines among those who say Fox is their most trusted news network

            Trump’s favorability rating has dropped 32 points between June and December among respondents who said they trust Fox over any other news network. In June, the number was 90 percent, and in December, just 58 percent, according to the data first reported by The Washington Post.

            God bless TRUMP He knows how to handle you screw balls!!!!!

          • FrankE

            Unfortunately Trump is so delusional he doesn’t know how to handle anything. I’m not just being flip about his mental status. Many Psychological experts have now weighed in, knowing full well they haven’t examined him in person, out of fear for what he’s capable of they have come out in unison about his messed up mentality. He’s just unfit for that or most other jobs. I certainly wouldn’t hire him for anything. I think if they can get him into a professionals office for an examination he will be determined to be unfit for duty. When you think about it, those are the words he’s wanted to hear for his entire life………………

        Knowing full well the history of Donald Trump as well as the previous 4 Presidents. I feel safe in debunking your comment. Nobody as mentally challenged and ignorant as Trump is fit to be President, Period.
        I must then assume that along with the fact that this is only your fourth post under this name, you are most likely looking to start an argument. Well I have to many things to worry about to take your kind of bait. If your intent on being a Troll, please find somewhere else to post………….l.

            That’s a lie, and you know it

          • FrankE

            Actually I watch YouTube. I can get many many different view points from both sides of the isle. Aside from the regular news channels you ever watch the Young Turks,or Ring of Fire, these are what is known as independent news outlets. No advertisers and definitely bipartisan. If a Democrat screws up they get blasted, same goes for everyone else. I’m not a conservative and I’m definitely not a Liberal. I strive for, and consume information from every source I can find. most people don’t like Trump because he is a Republican, they think Hillery should have won. I dislike Trump because I’ve taken the time to learn about his past. He’s a racist autocrat, who will lie, cheat and steal just to make a buck. He’s also pathological lire, how can anything said by him be believed?

          so what! that pool was taking in portland Me. Who cares

  • David M. Perry

    There are three ways he can be disposed of: 1. Impeachment; 2. criminal prosecution; and 3. Article XXV of the Constitution, which covers his inability to exercise the duties of his office. But with a Republican congress, none of these is likely. But wait til 2018, when we can sweep them all out of office.

      WHAT ARE YOU DRINKING! THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!

        Only if Putin fails in taking over our Government via blackmail. He seems to be doing pretty good right now
