Shocked! Yea that’s the reaction from some GOP Senators about Trump’s antics since he was acquitted of impeachment in the Senate just eight days. These same Senators thought Trump had learned his lesson. Shocked! They thought he would calm down. Shocked! They thought he would be less impulsive. Shocked! They thought he would be less divisive. Shocked! They thought that maybe, just maybe, he would even act more Presidential. Shocked! What a bunch of dipshits.

As I have written before and I am sure I will write a thousand times more, Donald Trump gives a shit about one thing and one thing only. Not America. Not the Constitution. Not the hard-working people of this country. Not God. Not Jesus. Not the Evangelicals. Not even the lowly, toothless, Deplorables that buy his t-shirts, his hats and wave their signs at his redneck, Ku Klux Klan rallies. No Donald Trump only cares about one thing and that one thing is, wait for it, Donald J. Trump.

At Trump’s National Prayer Breakfast last Thursday, the keynote speaker was Arthur Brooks, the Professor of the Practice of Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School and author of the book “Love Your Enemies”. Speaking to the conservative, Evangelical, handpicked orange ass kissers Trump invited, Mr. Brooks stated that; “Some people say we need more civility and tolerance. I say, nonsense.. Why? Because civility and tolerance are a low standard. Jesus didn’t say, ‘tolerate your enemies.’ He said, ‘love your enemies.’ Answer hatred with love.” Trump’s response, “Arthur, I don’t know if I agree with you.” There you go GOP, and Evangelical Nation, according to Donald J. Trump even your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ is full of crap.

Shocked! It is absolutely fascinating to me the amount of power and control Trump has over the Republican party, power that he has accumulated and consolidated in just four short years. It’s as if he has a mentor, Putin, a benefactor, Putin, an ally, Putin. It’s as if someone has given him a playbook, Putin, or even made payments, Putin, to buy the loyalty, Putin, and support, Putin, of influencers like Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell, Putin. I wonder who it could be?

In the meantime, the shock continues for the GOP as The Donfather, in the immortal words of Michael Corleone, “settles all the family business” (keeping in mind that family is a very loose term for Drump) by firing everyone that testified against him, or mean tweeting about those that didn’t support him. Is he thin-skinned? Oh hell yea the thinnest, translucent some would say. Is he a big fat orange baby? Most definitely. Trump has the distinction of being able to spew a diaper full of shit out of his ass and his mouth at the same time. A rare talent indeed. Is he willing to “turn the other cheek”? No, but he is willing to let you and I and the rest of the world kiss, his wide, fat, white cheeks. This man-like creature is real charmer, isn’t he? Gosh, it’s no wonder the Evangelicals see so much of Jesus Christ in this dung ball of hate and ego. Heck it’s like JC is walking, talking and tweeting among us! Shock!

I know there is a lot of noise right now from our Dick-Tater. Trump is trying to beat us all down, trying to crush our confidence, defeat us before our vote can even counted. Just turn it all off and tune it all out and get your mind right for November 3, 2020. Dust off your voter registration card and make sure all the information is up to date and correct. Remember any of the now eight candidates running for the Democratic Presidential nomination would do a better job than Trump with half their brain tied behind their back. Peace!

    Hello Ends and Beginnings. Do you think any of his White House staff or the Republicans in congress are rethinking their full out allegiance to him? Will the more he becomes unhinged then will they dump him, or will they cling to his avatar in an attempt to control his cult base? He clearly has suffered a mental decline, any comparison of even videos from two years ago can show that, videos from decades ago show even more stark change. I think right now the Republicans in congress are using him as a figurehead to get their ideology set up for the future. They have no real loyalty to him or his ideas. That should scare us, what they plan in the future as the demographics clearly show they are an ever decreasing minority. Hugs

    • My thoughts are along yours, old white men like Mitch and Lindsey see the end of the rope and they figure young conservative judges are the knots in that rope that will carry their ideology for maybe the next 20 to 30 years further. They know Trump is sick and they also know he is a lazy blowhard that spends 90% of his day in his bedroom watching television and talking to himself and playing with his phone. We will get through this and we will get beyond these dark days. Hugs back.

    I guess the difference between us and the US is that nobody, but nobody, in the church has a good word to say for Boris Johnson.
