Once the Campaign ended, Donald Trump lost the power to blame everything on the Incumbent. “Obamacare is awful!” “With Dodd-Frank, no one can get a loan!” “We need to bring our Corporate Tax Rates down!” Oh, let’s not forget his pledges to “Make America Great Again!” and of course, “I will ‘Drain the Swamp!’”
When he was running for office, whatever he said could be written in pencil: it was just campaign rhetoric! But now, Donald Trump should realize that he has to assume responsibility. Actions can, and will, have implications! The Anti-Muslim Ban has been rebuked by the Judiciary. The failed raid in Yemen caused one American death, and the lives of 28 Yemenis. And his vow to “Repeal “Obamacare” has brought-out thousands of extremely agitated Americans who are quite happy with their existing Affordable Health Care.
A week ago, Trump actually did go on a full-blown rally, spewing hatred and lies. Then, perhaps Donald had some sort of epiphany, and realized that he’s supposed to be the leader of All Americans! As yet, however, he still refuses to assume any responsibility whatsoever. According to Trump: President Obama is behind the thousands of angry Americans at Town Hall Meetings with Members of Congress, and he claims that the Generals are the reason for the failed raid in Yemen. Donald Trump, ever the blame-shifter, claims: “They lost Ryan!” Has Trump ever assumed responsibility…for anything? Ever?
Some columnists have suggested that his Address last night had a softer tone, if not a softer tune. Favorability polls nudged slightly higher, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose by 303 points today, or 1.46%. But, what did they hear from Trump’ s words? That softer tone is merely what people wish to hear, given the dire pessimism that abounds! Once the hype subsides, however, most Americans will realize that it just remains business as usual—with Trump!
Donald has a sort of “Tower of Babel” effect on people. When he speaks, everyone—especially the believers—hears what they wish to hear! He mentions tax cuts for the middle class; but, his Tax Reform will mostly go to the wealthy and corporations. Bring back high-paying industrial jobs; but, you’ll need the requisite job skills for today’s digital technology?
With Donald Trump, when he keeps talking about what he’s gonna do, I can only think of three things. How many times are we going to hear the same ignorant ideas? What will they cost us, the Taxpayers? And where is the Plan, and with factual details, on the Internet?
Donald, it’s time to get off the pot!
