THE VETTING OF A PRESIDENT
It is just over four months since the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America. It has been roughly 140 days of chaos, stupidity, lies, and incompetence. To say that Trump is totally unfit for the job is a gross understatement.
I am not an expert on the American Political system but fortunately politicians are the same the world over so with that in mind let me voice a few thoughts on the American Presidency and Political make up of the day.
In the U.S. there is a Republican President a Republican Congress and a Republican Senate in other words the Executive (President) and the Legislative (Congress/Senate) and even the independent Judiciary is Republican dominated. As long as this is the case the hullabaloo over Trump will remain just that a lot of gum beating. Today at the Senate Intelligence Committee hearings, James Comey the former head of the F.B.I. (Federal Bureau of Investigation) was the star attraction. The committee questioned Comey about his meetings with Trump prior to being fired by Trump. They are trying to find if Trump obstructed Justice by vaguely suggesting that Comey and the F.B.I. drop their investigation into the former N.S.A. (National Security Advisor) Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and his connection to the Russians, if any. There is proof that the Russians hacked into the Democrat Party E-mail and released a lot of damaging e-mails about the Democrats candidate for President, Hilary Clinton, which interfered with the election process. There is talk about impeachment but that is all it will remain until the Republicans begin to realize that Trump is going to cost them seats in the mid-term elections in 2018 and they could lose their majority in the Congress.
It is known that Trump is a pathological liar yet to about 40% of the American voters he is akin to the second coming as one can get. He is narcissistic, overbearing, spoiled, smug, and 70 going on 13. He is determined that he can make better deals than all his predecessors. He is also obsessed with destroying everything that Obama accomplished. He is a racist and it must gall him to no end that a black man with far more class and intelligence than himself could become President. There are reports that when Trump was told of the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate the so called Russian Affair he went ballistic. Personally just form looking at him I can see that. In his arrogant conceit he is going to cause possible irreparable damage between the U.S. and its’ allies.
During his campaign for the Presidency he kept referring to a Deep Vetting process for refugees and immigrants from Muslim countries and an alright ban on people coming from six Muslim States that he maintains aid terrorism. Why didn’t the Republican Party do an in-depth vetting of him. This is twice now that the Republicans have screwed up on checking out candidates. The first was Sarah Palin for vice-President and it didn’t take long for them to realize their mistake with her. Trump is a buffoon and I think every derogatory word in the English language, and a few others, have been used to the point of boring repetitiveness to describe him. In closing it looks like the world is stuck with him for the next four years. That is if the world survives those same four years.
