Trump Is the Worst President in U.S. History — We Need To Vote Him Out
Let’s stop dancing around the obvious and say it loud for the people in the back:
Donald Trump is a bitch.
A weak and simple racist and an ignorant narcissist, he’s a xenophobic and misogynistic con man who knows nothing about history and does nothing but golf. He’s absolutely unable and unprepared to lead effectively in any regard.
He’s treasonous, a cheat, and a liar, and is no more than a gilded bully who knows nothing of how real bullies get down and who takes pleasure in tormenting those he perceives weaker than him. A collector of bankruptcies, lawsuits, and infidelities who falsely uses the bible for a photo op and courts evangelicals with a faux encouragement of family values, he is utterly devoid of morality or any redeeming qualities. He is White privilege incarnate.
At first, I was dismissive of his win because I thought America deserved Donald Trump. Its fascination with all that glitters finally bit it in the ass. I have no love for Hillary Clinton either, and the reality that America’s choices boiled down to those two was disheartening in 2016. The fact that Trump won, though, and that his policies have since eviscerated the quality of life for his supporters who aren’t wealthy elites, is unfortunate — but deserved. Any of his followers who were willing to overlook his blatantly racist antics and dog-whistle language for the promises of dismantling Obamacare and bringing back coal — coal! — and promising manufacturing jobs that never materialized, among other things, got what they had coming to them. No doubt, a little socialized health care and government relief checks would sound great to them right about now — though chances are they won’t admit it if asked.
But that’s not the real outrage. The actual injustice is the effect Trump’s had on those who never warranted the fallout from his ineptitude in the first place, and who have vocally opposed him and his ilk from day one: the Black community. Trump got only 8% of the Black vote in 2016 according to exit polls, but we’re the ones who continue to be disproportionately affected by his policies and lack of concrete direction.
