Sorry

ROBERT H. WORKMAN

Spring Hill

Where does one begin? Let’s start with Donald Trunp’s ego. He claimed to have a larger gathering at his inauguration over Obama’s. Not. He claims to have a great mind and doesn’t need help from his generals because he knows more than they do. Again, not. He brags that he has the largest rallies and everything else he says or does is the best. I have never known a person who is so perfect in every way.

Of course, he is the one saying these things about himself. Has to keep boosting that huge ego of his.

Now, his lies and half-truths. What can I say? Just about everything that comes out of his mouth is false. I don’t think he would know how to tell the truth about anything.

From the Washington Post, Dec. 17, 2019: Trump as of Dec. 10 had told 15,413 untruths during his presidency, The Post’s Fact Checker column reported. That’s an average of 14.6 for each of his 1,055 days in office. Trump made 1,999 false claims in 2017 and 5,689 in 2018 — a total of 7,688, the newspaper reported. He had ramped up the untruths in 2019, however, hitting 7,725 falsehoods with three weeks still to go in the year. PolitiFact bestowed on him its “Lie of the Year” award for the third time.

He says he got 306 Electoral College votes, most since Reagan. He actually only got 304 as two electors refused to cast their vote for him. George H W Bush, 426 in 1988; Clinton, 370 in 1992 and 379 in 1996; Obama 365 in 2008. In 2017, Trump to a group of U.S. sheriffs the murder rate in the U.S. was the highest in 45 to 47 years. In fact, the murder rate was at an all-time low.

February 2017: He said Kuwait issued a visa ban on several Muslim-majority countries after his immigration order. Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressedly denied the reports. He blamed Delta’s computer outage, protesters and the tears of Schumer for the big problems at airports after his ban.

Instead, they were caused by his executive order. January 2017: In a meeting with congressional leaders he says 3 to 5 million illegals voted in the election, costing him the popular vote. The National Association of Secretaries of State, which has a majority of Republicans, said it was “not aware of any evidence that supports the voter fraud claims by President Trump.”

I could go on but I would fill the entire paper.

This could turn into a book so will finish up on what my last words are going to be about Trump. He’s a liar, con-man and the most self-serving person I have ever seen. And to those who support him, all I can say is you must be the same way. To allow this person, and I use that term very loosely, to continue to walk all over our Constitution and our laws makes you complicit

You claim to be patriotic citizens and love of your country, yet you do or say nothing about how he acts and talks about women, the disabled, Gold Star Families, the LGBTQ community and anyone else who is not a white, wealthy old man.

He turns on anyone who goes against him even though he praised them the whole time before. He can’t, I repeat, can’t be trusted about anything. He alienates our allies and praises dictators.

He has more lawsuits against him than women accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse. And for such a great brain and businessman, he has had more than a few bankruptcies.

He only thinks of himself. As far as the economy goes, yes it’s doing well … no thanks to him. It was going up when he took office. It’s “We the People” who are improving the economy by spending. Presidents have very little effect on that. Unless they do something stupid like start trade wars, which he claims is now settled and better than it was before.

Farmers are still suffering even after the billions of our tax dollars given to them. His job creation record? Politifact said the highest monthly job gain under Trump — 232,000 — was exceeded in 28 separate months on Obama’s watch.

Job gains under Trump were actually lower than each of the last six years of February-to-August job gains for Obama, except for one year — 2012. The facts are out there but those who support Trump won’t look them up.

His supporters will once again bury their heads in the sand because he will protect your rights to own what ever type of weapon you want or you actually believe he has made you a little richer somehow. Or you’re against abortion, the LGBTQ community, or you’re afraid of other nationalities becoming more powerful.

To his supporters; Has he brought out the true you because it’s heartbreaking to think so many of people support this guy.
