Written by myself tonight, April 7 at 7:42 pm before news of Trump’s hastily produced but dramatically video-graphed attack on one airfield in Syria took place:
"Still sick to my stomach from watching Trump dismantle all that was decent about America. And now his gross hypocrisy about the children in Syria is even more nauseating. He opposed US intervention in the Syrian war vehemently for years while most of the 500,000 victims were killed, likely a hundred thousand children among them, and so many others were maimed, blinded, had limbs shredded, had their faces blown off, were burned alive, crushed, had barrel bombs dropped on their apartment buildings, drowned in the Mediterranean Sea, and/or were tortured or orphaned in the war…but now that the draft dodger in chief sees pictures of a few lethally gassed babies he suddenly notices the nightmare that has been going on, and promptly seizes a diversionary marketing opportunity. I think the big buffoon just wants to play soldier boy and bomb the living daylights out of somebody, or perhaps anybody, or some airport, just to try to rescue his atrocious poll numbers. The club-footed simpleton with the unjustified superiority complex must think he is General Patton. I say we fly Air Force One over there to Damascus or Homs and drop Trump himself from 30,000 feet …cratering the main runway used by the Syrian Air Force…for that impact would make a huge enough crater to stop the deadly flights with the gas canisters aboard.
The only thing that keeps me marginally sane is watching Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Fareed Zakariah, Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, Seth Meyers, etc. This shallow egotist has to be the most detested and dangerously vindictive president in American history, surpassing even Nixon.”
The following was written by myself at midnight that same night after the cruise missile reality show broadcast worldwide in living color:
p.s. *But now we all must watch in horror while this sorry excuse for a president soars in the polls as the gullible blood-lusting sheep across the country rally to his shallow act of retribution and hypocrisy. We all know that gassing people to death has been a nightmare for humanity for a century since the grisly trench warfare of the Great War. Assad is a horrific tyrant…so bad that not even the strongman-worshipping Donald respects him. But this new policy by Trump sets the precedent that as long as the endless toll of death is inflicted with bullets to the brain or by having the flesh ripped off by exploding TNT at 10,000 Fahrenheit or by screaming shells blowing up cars and hospitals and schools and living rooms, then the USA will take no action. But when 100 of those 500,000 victims die in a gas attack (insert photo of lifeless infant here), Trump will finally notice the horror and interrupt his latest gourmet feast at Mar-a-Lago to lash out 3 days after his sudden moment of tearful grief to call the Pentagon to take some token action to disable one offending airfield 6600 miles away…as long as the video is loud and crisp and occurs during prime time for maximum effect on the masses of adoring fans of warfare across the nation who are surely impressed with his superficially manly display of military courage, the hard cylinders of death thrusting upward obediently and tumescently. And as the war drags on, if any survivors of the hellacious civil strife in Syria ask for asylum, Trump will make sure no Syrian will find sanctuary in the USA…not even the families of the dead children he used so callously to boost his historically hideous poll numbers in his grisly exploitative photo op in early April of 2017.
America: Don't be fooled again by this manipulative charlatan. He is not my president. Do you really want him to be your president? He does not embody the greatness of this country in any respect. It would be a supreme act of patriotism for Donald J. Trump to step down from the office he stole so brazenly.
