My Dear America:
There must be something about him that is invisible to me. Or at least there is something that is difficult for me to see and understand about his hold on So Many Americans, Both Republicans and even some Democrats. I can see very clearly why and how Racists, The Klan and the Nazis can find something to love, or at least like in Donald Trump. I have literally spent the entire four years he was in office trying to understand his hold on those Americans who love and admire Donald Trump. I will never understand it. It makes no sense to me. It never will.
He is very clearly a Racist himself and he doesn't hide it by any stretch of the imagination. Maybe that's what some people like about him. He doesn't try to hide his Racism. He's ballsy. He doesn't often tell the truth but he makes his Racism look like something good, Like something to be admired.
But what about those people who aren't Racists themselves who still seem obsessed and fascinated by a man who to some of us is just about the worst individual who ever occupied the White House.
Now wait a minute, we have had some other very unsavory characters who were Presidents of the United States. But until Donald Trump we never had Republicans lying about who won a Presidential Election. And although we have had some terrible United States Legislatures before, until He came along we never had Republicans willing to stand back and accept Russian Propaganda as facts in the halls of Congress.
The evidence of Donald Trump's treachery and fawning allegiance not to America but to World Dictators has been clear for the entire time of his Failed Presidency.
But People who are Ever Trumpers seem to be blind to the fact that Donald Trump not only doesn't care about them but despises them just as he seems to despise much of what is good in America.
Maybe I just know too much about him. I've read a lot of the more popular but respected books about him. None of them were very flattering portraits of a man who should be President. Just the opposite.
Maybe its the fact that Donald Trump, unlike many American leaders before him does not try to hide his faults. Instead he performs his evil deeds right out front for everyone to see. Clearly some people like that.
But at some point it is time for the Trump Cult to recognize just how much they are giving up by siding with someone who is truly rotten to the core.
Just ask his Niece, Mary Trump, who he shafted out of a fortune.
Also Ask his Former Personal Lawyer and Fixer, Michael Cohen, who famously said he would "take a bullet" for Donald Trump. Cohen never took a bullet for Trump but he did take two Years in Prison for Donald Trump with Trump showing his appreciation for Cohen's sacrifice by disparaging and demeaning Cohen to anyone and everyone.
But Michael Cohen woke up to reality in Prison just like some of those people who will go to jail for Trump for their crimes committed in and around the United States Capitol Building on January 6th, 2021. Many of them will wake up to reality in jail although it will be too late for some whose lives will be ruined by a President who preferred to propagate "The Big Lie" rather than admit to the truth which was that he was fully and legitimately defeated in the November 2020 Presidential Election.
Michael Cohen found out the hard way just how much his loyalty to Donald Trump was misplaced and these days Cohen is out of jail and spilling his secrets and broadcasting some very interesting programs on his "Mea Culpa" Podcast.
Something tells me that Trump's Strongest Florida Congressional Ally. Matt Gaetz is also bound to find out what other Trump Acolytes have found out in due course. Trump will be your friend when he can get something from you, but when you can no longer help him he will jettison you from his orbit as quick as you can say "Mike Pence".
