President-elect Trumpachev. Every day it’s a new fucking travesty with this guy. On the day after the election I dared hope he might not be as bad as I thought. I was right: He’s much, much worse.
He’s the most unpopular president-elect in history. I wonder why? He can’t articulate a single policy beyond bellicose boasting, can’t finish a declarative sentence most of the time. He kisses up to foreign dictators and despises the fellow Americans who question whether vulgarity and ignorance are great qualities for a leader. He needed Russian intervention to eke out a razor-thin victory; half of the minority who voted for him just did it as a middle finger to Washington. They never thought the asshole could win.
Trump voters say we should give him a chance, look for the good in the man. Nope. Can’t even. He’s blown his chance about 800 times since Nov. 9. I’m done. And if there’s even a slight whiff of goodness in this goofball, he’s masking it well with the sulphurous scent of malign egotism. Somebody open a window.
A man who respects nobody deserves no respect for himself. I loathe Trump; I detest everything he has shown himself to be. He is, as the red-neck humorist Trae Crowder put it, “a truck made of turds.” He’s rolling down the sidewalk like an ISIS-inspired lunatic and he doesn’t care who he hits. I won’t be watching the his stupid inauguration and neither should you. Let that audience be confined to the craven opportunists and c-list celebrities and bumper-sticker bumpkins who imagine some personal benefit in playing along.
This isn’t about Republican vs. Democrat, liberal vs. conservative, rich vs. poor. It doesn’t have anything to do with “values” — because, Trump. But we could talk about all that. We can’t talk about letting this ridiculous man-child tweet us all down the road to perdition.

I have been disappointed by election results before. This is the only time I have been frightened by them.

Well said. Trump is a one-man 9/11. Can’t end well.
I don’t know which I loathe most: Trump, the silver-haired sycophants who are forming up for fellatio, or Trump’s voters.
But I do know that, for me, despising their hypocrisy has no bounds. Let us now pass legislation to increase the debt by nine trillion after their ongoing whine about deficit spending. Let Trump work for a dollar a year and abolish the estate tax for his kids.
This will be an ugly ride.
Dave Knadler says
Yeah, going to war against ethics oversight right out of the gate. Railing about Hillary’s coziness with Wall Street and then packing the cabinet with Goldman Sachs alumni.
The rubes who like Trump deserve everything that’s coming to them. Unfortunately, those of us who loathe Trump will not be exempt.

I am fearful for my country… as a teacher, I’ve always taught and wanted to hope that people will do their best for the common good, but not anymore. I see such a tsunami of nastiness and justification for any mean-spirited thing someone feels like saying or doing…it’s going to be hard to fight, and I feel like we will not come out of this a better or stronger country…

It seems like we just got done cleaning up the mess that Dubya and his crew left behind. Then we were starting to make some progress despite all the obstructionism. But now this. How big is the mess going to be after 4 (or 8!) years?
