Donald Trump’s Speech Made Him Sound Like Someone Who Is Scatter-Brained

Donald Trump delivered his speech much like someone who is scatterbrained. Nothing was cohesive as far as I am concerned. He was all over the place speaking on issue after issue in a discombobulated fashion and offering no concrete solutions. Besides, nothing about this scatterbrained man looked or sounded presidential. The speech i heard had underlying implications his main concern about setting himself up as king in the white house? Trump  wants to be president so much that he will do and say anything to achieve this goal? The Donald has invested in every kind of real estate you could imagine. He is now tired of that hobby and need something else to do… the White House. Heaven help us if that narcissist succeeds. Even as nothing that he says he is going to do he could actually single handedly do, the thought of having someone with his kind of temperament as leader of the free world makes me cringe; for he neither looks like such in stature, nor sounds like he could be when he speaks.

Milania Trump’s Plagiarized Speech

Its official, Milania Trump knew that parts of her speech were lifted from First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech of the 2008 Democratic Convention, so says her surrogate Ms Mciver. This is further confirmation that the Trumps know no boundary when it comes to getting what they want. Donald Trump himself set up a phony University and used it to bilk unsuspecting students out of millions of dollars. Then he spouted racism by claiming that he would not get a fair trial because the prosecutor assigned to handle the case is Mexican. Donations that Trump has raised for veterans are still unaccounted for to this day, so either he has lied about receiving such monies or he is it keeping for himself. Furthermore, Trump told you that he has donated millions of dollars to charities, but investigative reporters have yet to find documents to support this claim. In addition Trump’s son, Eric called up reporters and used swear words to them because of the headline written about it. This is the Royal Family that you are fighting to put in the White House.

As you can see this is obviously a very close-knit family. Indeed the Donald won’t even hire qualified advisers to help him with his campaign; he has had his family doing it. This is how much faith he has in them. So imagine them in the white house with their secrets. Imagine the Donald making Ivanka the Secretary of State; Donald Trump Jr. Ambassador and Eric trump Press Secretary. Well who do you think he is going to put in these positions? Right now as you can see they are treating the campaign the way they treat their business…. They all run it together. Obviously they think they can run the White House like that; but as you can see the presumptive King Trump’s campaign is a debacle. Imagine his kids running the white house the way they’ve been running his campaign. Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue! But it does not have to be that way if people wake up and smell the coffee.

Donald Trump Jr. Lacked Humility in Making the Case for his Father.

 

I was shocked at Donald Trump Jr’s tone in making the case for his father. I taught that the younger Trump would have taken a more sedate tone and a better approach in making the case for his father. Instead he went down the same road as his father in hurling insult after insult at the President, the “others” and the potential democratic nominee Hilary Clinton. It is obvious that like his father he has no interest in bringing people of all stripes together. In fact I was so shocked at bellicose tone that I watched the whole speech with my mouth wide opened. In addition to the rhetoric and the moxie, I noticed that his eyes were very red and I thought that he sounded angry more than anything else. If this were my year to vote for a Republican, that tone and rhetoric coming from a member of the nominee’s family, would have turned me off.

To highlight that side of him as he touted his father, as a mentor is to say to the public that this is how he was raised and taught to think and that he was just as arrogant as the elder Trump. In addition, his rhetoric suggested that all the nastiness that his father has been portraying, along the campaign trail, is ok with him.

This leads me to ask this question. Are these the kind of people that you want in the Whitehouse, or should I say (from the looks of things) as potential airs to the impending “throne?”

 

Milania Trump, trumped divisiveness at the Republican National Convention

Milania Trump, trumps divisiveness at the Republican National Convention

 

The fact that Milania Trump had to spell out that they are going to be inclusive of Latinos Jews, Blacks and Muslims shows just how much Republicans think of themselves as “other.” Our country is very diverse and has been so for decades. Therefore, it is about time that we start leaving out color, religion and race out of our civil conversation. Indeed, it only plays into the narrative of divisiveness. America is not about being black, white green or gold. Anybody that has to point that out must think of himself as different from everybody else, and it is that kind of other-than-you that is at the heart of the restlessness that has been rising among those that have been made to feel like they are other today.

Speaker sells soul to Donald Trump

Paul Ryan endorses the bigot, why is anyone surprise? We have known all along that the GOP are bigots. They want the white house so bad that they are going with someone whose mantra: “Make America Great Again is code word for make America work only  for people that look like him. You know, like how it was when they were snatching people from the Ivory Coast to work for them in servitude at their big gaudy mansions.  What is next for these people? Bring back aunt Jemima in the head rap, the rapes, the whippings, the indentured servants;   Drop an A bomb in the Middle East; continue to give authenticity to gun ownership even as it gets into terrorist hands whose sole intention is to murder us; roll back the clock on: Roe vs. Wade; gay rights, women’s rights, civil rights. Roll back President Obama’s achievements; pander to the rich while highlighting the shortcomings of the poor. Shame on Paul Ryan for selling his soul!! When Secretary Clinton wins and she will, it will be the end of them and the intensity of their repugnance.

House Republican’s Approval Ratings Drop as a Result of Benghazi Line of Questioning

I take my hat off to Secretary Clinton for her amazing performance in spite of the RepuGNicants, who are doing nothing but take her down a partisan road to nowhere. Perhaps the Obama Administration should revise their decision not to bring Bush up on war crimes over the Iraq debacle. Furthermore, why was there no 911 special committee convened to find out why the Bush administration did not follow up on intelligence about an imminent threat to us by Al qaeda? It was because he dropped the ball that more than three thousand Americans lost their lives on our soil on September 11, 2001. Indeed, Bush dropped the ball but there was no 911 special committee to make sure he doesn’t get a second term as president or even to impeach him. Could it be that it was because the Democrats held the house majority at the time and at the time was more interested in unity for our country rather than divisiveness?

If the RepuGNicants think that this overreach and public spectacle, which they are making of themselves, over the Benghazi attacks is going to put it together for them to take back the white house in 2016, then they surely did not think things through. It is about time that they come to terms with the fact that the country is tired of them highlighting things that tend to divide, rather than unite us.

Scott Walker Quits GOP Presidential Race

This is utterly amazing. Of all the candidates I did not expect Walker to quit so soon, but it is good news. If he was elected president you would be stuck with all his horrible ideas such as opposing the minimum wage, defunding planned parenthood; repealing Obama Care among others. You would also have to listen to his constant denial of climate change issues. It is good that he has decided to exit the race. After all, it is a known fact that he has made the education system and other agencies of Wisconsin unsubstantial. Unfortunately, he survived the recall perpetrated by his constituents for these debacles. He continued to ravage the state, and as a result was not even polling well there. In order to be president you have to be able to at least win your own state. So if Walker could not convince his own constituents that he is ‘any good,’ then how did he expect to win over the rest of the population?

Donald Trump Meets His Match

Donald Trump… for President of the United States? At first I found his racist anti-immigrant and anti-establishment rants, very funny, because he sounded much more like he was in the role of a comedian out for entertainment. He had this crude way of communicating with is base, which is hardly the style expected from someone who considers himself an upper class learned business person, much less someone interested in being the leader of the free world. So why would anyone take him seriously?

The speeches that he gives at his rallies are so unsubstantial they make “your head spin” to coin ‘his’ phrase. All he does is attack, attack, and attack. Ok so Jeb Bush is a little lack luster, but doesn’t the Donald have any other language in his vocabulary to describe him but weak? Laterally, he is so thin-skinned that he wants to sue you if you suggest that his hair looks like a toupee. He wants to be able to say mean things about people, but if anyone dare ‘speak the truth about him’ they get the threat of a lawsuit. How is he that different from the big money establishments that give donations to candidates in order later have them push their upside down priorities if elected. (Trump swears accepting donations from… says he cant be bought) when he too uses his money to assuage an upside priority, his bruised ego?

Trump’s language on minorities is divisive and rather frightening. Trump as president would push this country on its backside in a way that it may never recover. Does trump think that he can run this country without the interactions of minority? It is absolutely absurd for him to think that, having balanced his checkbook over and over again on the backs of the minority poor and marginalized of this country. We must remember the acclaimed Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton after all they gave us “broken windows theory” didn’t they? It is because of them why our jails are so filled with people serving ridiculous time for minor offenses. The prison crisis has become such a financial burden for the establishment that they have begun fixing it by outsourcing LOL: Whoever heard of such a thing as outsourcing prisons? The thing that makes me most uncomfortable is that this has become a new frontier that neoliberalism capitalists are profiting from. There have been an awful story about a Judge Mark Ciavarelli (Judge pleads guilty to scheme ) who sentenced teenagers on petty misdemeanors to this prison simply because he was part of a scheme to fill up this jail with people to make a profit.

There is a danger in how Donald Trump dismisses minorities as if they are none entities. I recall the reporter Jorge Ramos an upstanding citizen of the Latino American community. Mr. Trump dismissed him as if he was a non-entity because he asked a question out of turn, a question that so offended Mr. Trump because it cut to heart of his radical suggestions of ways to deal with illegal immigrants and the border crisis, which he has been spouting off about since he launched his campaign. He actually told Mr. Ramos to go back to Univision, and when challenged by reporters about his actions, pretended like he did not know whom this very established reporter was. I was very troubled by how Mr. Ramos was being treated by Mr. Trump.

Yes, I was laughing at his crude comedic comments in the beginning of his campaign, but when I saw that I stood up and took notice. You should consider what you would be getting into should you elect someone who would treat another human being in pubic the way the Donald, treated Mr. Ramos. If Trump is such a tyrant in public, who will he be in private, another Richard Nixon doing underhanded deeds and trying to fire his aides if they do not carry out his request to destroy the evidence?

The idea of Trump as president is daunting to say the least. People need to stop looking at this none-talking points bully with stars in their eyes, and start using their brains to assess that so far he as offered nothing more than divisiveness of citizenry for this country.
