I just viewed the most embarrassing Presidential speech of my life today.
I have pc probs again, so bear with me.
I was thinking of Nixon.
Nixon hated the media.
Nixon had an enemies' list.
Nixon hated democrats.
Nixon broke the law when ever he could.
Nixon kept us in a war that would never end; and Nixon certainly communicated with the enemy in the Vietnam War and he certainly approached the North Vietnam whores during his campaign. But before he won the election he would SCREAM:
I HAVE A SECRET PLAN TO END THE WAR.
Anything to take on Humphrey in 1968.
and yet more American soldiers (read slaves per the draft) died under his tenure than under LBJ'S.
But Nixon had gravitas, Nixon had depth, Nixon knew something about how the world worked.
So here comes the naked elephant in the room.
And here comes this guy who asks the Russians to find Hillary's E-Mails.
And here comes this guy whose lieutenants communicate with those
And here comes this guy who is in concert with those Russian pricks.
Trump could say anything he wished throughout the campaign.
He would just 'let it fly'.
But now he is POTUS.
And most folks just figured he would turn it down, so to speak.
The repubs were just hoping that Trump could carry their flag long enough to give all the corps what they wanted and all the rich what they wanted and all the white nationalists what they wanted and all the nutso Christians all they wanted and....
But here he is:
Trump spends two minutes on his new labor secretary. hahahahah
The guy is just supposed to nominate his newest candidate for Secretary of Labor.
But what does he do?
He attacks the media and he attacks the leaks and he attacks anyone who might have disagreed with him and he....
Even the President of the United States must stand naked.
I am astounded by this 'press conference', I am awed by this presentation and yet I am
See, Nixon had a perspective, Nixon had a view of the future, Nixon felt a real historical imperative.
Trump has no perspective, no view of the future, no historical imperative.
I certainly predicted this, just like 60 million other folks.
Along with twenty million who voted for the bastard.
I still believe that millions voted for this idiot with the intent to tear this building down.
As a kid I certainly felt that Nixon hated everyone but himself.
I WAS WRONG.
But Trump really does hate everyone except for himself.
And he shall continue to embarrass himself as well as the entire nation for the next four years.
I thought about music themes for presidents during my lifetime.
I will come back
Or the theme for LBJ?
