Things are not “fantastic,” or “great,” as our supreme leader would wish America to become. No single individual (except Jesus and perhaps Buddha) can make them so. Say this lie long enough and people will believe.

Recently, I was able to speak about current events with two elderly women while at the grocery store. I asked how they felt in light of current events. Both shook their heads and said they were frightened. I joined in, saying that while that fool is in office, women in general are in for an awakening because their daughters and granddaughters will be second-class citizens — never getting equal pay as men — nor the right to own their bodies, especially if grabbing their body parts is a right bestowed upon laughing men in power. That egregious talent is part of our commander and chief’s beliefs.

Donald Trump is so childishly egotistical that it causes people to giggle.

I remember, as a teen, whenever I found myself riding my high horse, feeling omnipresent, my dear mother would whisper to me this nursery rhyme:

“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall; all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, couldn’t put Humpty together again.” It took a while, but I finally learned the lesson.

One can’t help wondering if Trump’s mother ever recited that fable to young Donald. Clearly, it seems unlikely.
