The other day one of President Donald Trump’s oldest friends and staunch ally, Roger Stone was nabbed by the FBI in a dramatic early morning raid at his house in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. This brings to six former Trump senior advisers to be indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Never before has the American presidency faced such a crisis of confidence, not even when criminal conduct under President Richard Nixon was directed from the Oval Office.
One thing however that Roger Stone failed to learn from his mentor and hero Richard Nixon is that a cover up is worse than the crime itself.
To date, 26 Russian nationals, 3 Russian companies, 1 Californian man and 1 London-based lawyer have been indicted by the Special Counsel.
Not once in the two years that President Trump has been in office have polls shown him to be above fifty percent approval rate, the worst rating of any American President in the nation’s history.
Meantime, Trump tweets to no end about how he cannot be indicted because he is doing “ a good job” and has done no wrong, and there is no “collusion with Russia.” But evidence is mounting to justify Trump’s impeachment, and consensus across these United States about Trump’s unfitness to hold office is rampant.
The charges against Trump associates and advisers is a sprawling set of allegations, encompassing both election interference charges against overseas Russians, and various crimes by Trump advisers.
America’s reputation abroad among allies has never been shaken to the core like today, and Trump’s own personal rating is abysmal. He has in fact become a laughing stock and source of material for late night comedians.
Never before has an American president ever been suspected of working for Russians. But Trump’s failure to criticize President Putin is highly suspect, leading many to believe that Putin may have goods on Trump.
Adding to all the mess and leadership crisis, Trump spearheaded the shutdown of the Federal Government over failure to obtain funding of his racist wall on America’s southern border with Mexico, leaving 800,000 Federal workers without a paycheck for thirty five days. Not surprising: Trump is known for stiffing his workers at his failed casinos.
While many nations around the globe are busy building bridges to bring nations and cultures closer, Trump’s desire to build a wall on the U.S. southern border is proof of his racism and bigotry that not even Republicans support.
If the man lasts another two years American democracy will suffer immensely, and it will take decades to correct all the blunders that have been imposed on the country.
Never before has one man ever done so much damage to so many people. But, people get the President they deserve.
Trump singlehandedly hoodwinked the American citizenry to believe in all his racist, half baked ideals and moronic policies that are nearly bringing this great Republic to its knees.
It is frightening that he may stand a chance for a second term. Moving to Havana, or even Caracas never seemed so appealing.
