Make America Great Again—Trump Must Go! #148

First Trump sneaked off to Afghanistan to visit the troops, then he tweeted mixed feelings about the impeachment inquiry and whether the White House would participate. His trade talks with China are a ball of confusion and indecision, and now we hear that he has abruptly canceled a scheduled press conference at the 70th anniversary of NATO.
Trump the unpredictable—no, predictably imperial and unbalanced—continues to keep the nation and the world guessing about his next expected bizarre move.
If it is his determination to keep the passengers on his rudderless ship of state worried and puzzled about his direction and objectives he has accomplished that indisputably.
His behavior in the Oval House was precisely described during Jerrold Nadler’s opening statement Wednesday. The chair of the House Judiciary Committee noted that Trump took “extraordinary and unprecedented steps to obstruct the investigation, including ignoring subpoenas, ordering the creation of false records, and publicly attacking and intimidating witnesses.”
The White House’s occupant is a character straight from Dickens’ novels or another planet, with our apologies to the rest of those inhabitants.
We know that the impeachment proceedings will not go fast and far enough to remove him from office, but let us hope that it puts a crimp in his re-election plans and that the Democrats can gain at least a measure of respect for exercising a fight to retain our Constitutional rights, which Trump has abrogated at every turn.
Trump’s foreign and domestic policies are crazy quilts with little logic or rationale, but they accurately mirror his general temperament and disregard for citizens, particularly for members of the media who disagree with him.
The “clock and calendar” that Republican Collins referenced during his opening statement at the judiciary hearings is not so much one being imposed by Democrats, but one with each tick-tock, each flip of the page, we hope speeds his exit.
If the hearings are a “railroad job” it is our fervent wish that there’s a train that takes Trump right on down the road to oblivion or back to the nether world from which he emerged. Add that to our bucket list with an understanding that to Make America Great Again—Trump Must Go!
