President Trump is a coward

President Donald Trump is a coward.

Instead of avenging our stolen election, Trump spinelessly grovels to Putin, making us a banana republic ripe with the stench of a Third World country.

As corruption is now the norm, Trump and family steal from taxpayers, self-deal with foreign entities, violate ethics rules and breach the emoluments clause, all the while raking in cash and thumbing their noses.

Trump embraces tyrants and thugs. He’s a dictator wannabe who does as he pleases, striking blows to free speech, freedom of the press and democratic institutions.

We’ve seen this before. Remember the 1933 Nazis. Their brainwashing crusade involved cooperation from respected professionals like doctors, lawyers and clergy. Similar to the doctor, Dr. Art HenSchen from wholesome Minooka, who supports Trump. Deja vu.

Worried psychiatrists have abandoned the longstanding “Goldwater rule,” warning us that Trump is dangerous, a sociopath suffering from malignant narcissism and psychopathic episodes with a propensity to push the nuclear button.

The object of world scorn, Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris accord cast us together with Syria and Guatemala as three nations of shame on the planet. Who benefits? China, among others, will develop and install futuristic climate technologies in Africa and elsewhere, leaving America behind as a backward, idiot nation that rejects science.

Despite Trump’s braggadocio, he created fewer jobs in 2017 than Obama created in 2016. And the stock market? Do the math. It increased only 22 percent under Trump whereas Obama improved the stock market by 38 percent.

Trump’s administration is a kakistocracy which means government appointees are wildly inappropriate choices, deliberately picked to destroy government. Examples: Education Secretary DeVos has zero experience in public education. The Clean Water Rule is canceled by Scott Pruitt, Trump’s man in charge of clean water. And, by the way, also embroiled in scandal.
