As Trump's World Turns: Unpresidential As Any US President.




...Lazy And Preoccupied With Growing Overt Racism

Our history includes US Presidents who each in their own manner worked hard to make the United States a better nation. Modern US history includes all past precedents as hard-working, committed leaders who stood tall and lived credible and honest lives.

Well, I used the word "all" as a qualifier out of habit with full knowledge the US Presidency requires a special breed of human being. Our presidential history let us with Obama as a president who often read briefs and critical documents well into the wee hours of each morning.  He was reported to start each day at breakfast with his family and reports also included US Presidents was generally well into his day by 9AM. Trump offers an unfathomable contrast to the  Short Sleeper Syndrome Obama. 

Trump's leaked work schedule is all a rational person needs to come to the conclusion he is a lazy and preoccupied man. Last week Axios followed other media reports in linking to Trump's schedule for the first week of February.

Recall the following?



My point is well beyond a lazy and preoccupied denizen of the Oval Office.  Let's take a quick jaunt to a national disgrace which seems to be imbued in all things Trump and many in his GOP: racism. 

Early today Trump offered up a tweet just after 9AM when one would think a US President would be about the business of leading a nation. 

Gallup Poll: “Open Borders will potentially attract 42 million Latin Americans.” This would be a disaster for the U.S. We need the Wall now!
attract 42 million Latin Americans?" "Latins?"
What would be the reaction of Trump's hordes of MAGA bigots if the prospect of refugee immigrant was from our northern border and the asylum seekers where white French Canadian?
Alas, the social horrors of the nation's president. Yet there should be no surprise. Trump's bigotry and racism are as clear as his comb-over and his orange skin paste.

Latins?


How could we end this piece without our daily reminder of Trump as a PT Barnum like a pathological liar? Last night Trump visited El Paso, TX. would you know he came away spewing that which is most important to him: lies about crowds sizes.  Beto O'Rourke spoke at a counter-rally mere hours before Trump took the stage.

Trump Smorgasbord: Russian Asbestos, Fox News Racism, Suppress The Media

Yes, the meme is based on fact.  Check Snopes dot com.
____________________________


Now for a less popular topic which reaches across the full spectrum of US society. The far-reaching issue of race in the United States cannot be avoided and it can not escape its growing home on the social and political Right.

As you view what follows, notice the insertion of new phraseology from the caverns of Trumpism: "Legal immigration." A phrase introduced by Donald Trump over the past couple of weeks.



Alas, what does it take for lowlife white supremacist like David Duke to come to the same level of Ingraham?

Now watch as an MSNBC host, Nicole Wallace, addressed Fox New's growing support for the racist fissures of Trumpism. Of particular note is her unabashed unwillingness to accept fellow conservatives, Charley Sikes', characterization of Ingraham's remarks as "nativism." Nativism? How often we forget white people are not US natives and any attempt to gaslight or whitewash, or, less inflammatory use of the word racism is ridiculous.

A Media Matters take on Ingraham's Fox News segment.


If you are thinking the matter is isolated and unworthy of your time. CNN offers a stark example of what Hillary Clinton characterized as a "deplorable".

CNN ran the segment on the Erin Burnett Out Front show. (linked here) on the Right and may on the Left work at avoiding the reality of growing Nazis in the US, take a look at what follows.

While real media is reporting matters critical to our lives of Trumpism, wouldn't you know Trump's mission (along with his closest advisers) don't relish the scrutiny? In fact, Trump's daily rant against the media is leading to increasing numbers of US conservatives who accept the prospect Trump could shut down all media which views him unfavorably. Imagine Fox News, Alex Jones and various A radio host as your only source of information. Actually, information isn't the correct word; it is more aptly called propaganda

Watch and listen...AXIOS
