It has been exceedingly difficult to write about the Trump presidency, seemingly crumbling before our eyes. In part that’s because of the sheer pace of new revelations, scandals superseded by new scandals, the inane utterances – and tweets – of the president, a daily cascade of craziness.

Part of this is the news media, which rushes at us on a 24-hour clock, with no sense of cessation. Part of it is Trump’s sheer obsession with social media and his unique ability to undermine his own spokespersons with a tweet.

We are in the midst of the latest reality show – The Trump Show! – featuring Donald J. Trump, a manic superstar who hasn’t decided whether to host a comedy or a tragedy, but has seemingly settled for farce. One recent New York Times editorial mused about being a nation ruled by a child, a petulant, ill-mannered, tantrum-prone…

  1. The ‘Dumbass Trump Show’ is not funny at all. I am literally sick of it all! I don’t even watch TV and I hardly turn on my computer anymore because it does not matter what sign in screen you use, Trump’s stupid face is plastered all over it with some supposed ‘new’ piece of stupidity that’s been tweeted or stated. Why this yokel was even allowed to throw his hat into the presidential circus arena, I don’t know because there should be some strict requirements that must be met by each candidate for president before being allowed to run and both Trump and Clinton, should have failed any and all of them.

    And it is a sad indictment of Trump’s supporters that many of them still back him even with all the madness hanging on his ass!

  2. Well, Shelby, you took the words right out of my mouth. And as you say, it does make you literally sick watching, reading or hearing about it. The only comfort I get from all this is my belief that Trumps “dumbass” behavior is hastening the decline of US dominance (ie bullying) on the international stage. After Trump withdrew from the Paris climate treaty, China wasted no time in stepping forward as the official world leader in reducing greenhouse gasses and being quickly Europe in that regard.

    Of course they already were the world leader – it’s thanks to Chinese mass production of solar and wind technology that the price of renewable energy is now lower than fossil fuels. But this is the first time it has been officially acknowledge.

    Watch this space. And fasten your seatbelt. I think those of us in the industrialized world are in for a bumpy ride. Thanks for your comment.
