Given I was taught that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all, I don’t know what to say about our current President. I can’t think of a better example of people having the wool pulled down over their eyes. For some reason that escapes me, Trump’s “base” seems to think he’s their voice and speaks the truth. But I don’t think Donald Trump has ever spoken the truth in his life. Have you ever heard a man tell so many lies? And given the way he contradicts himself, you can’t help wondering if he even knows what the truth is.
When I was a boy growing up on the cotton farm back in the 1840s, we learned a story about our first President, George Washington. He admitted to his father that he cut down the cherry tree. He couldn’t tell a lie. Even if the story is just a myth, it shows that, at least at one time, our nation valued honesty— the truth mattered. But Trump won’t admit to anything To his way of thinking, he and his best interests are always right—HE IS ALWAYS THE TRUTH.
I don’t know why the Democrats didn’t expose how he screwed over all the small business owners that built and furnished his Casinos in Atlantic City. He has a track record of screwing over lots of people, but Atlantic City was a particularly egregious example. When he went bankrupt, all the small businesses got the shaft; they got pennies on the dollar, if anything at all. Not only that, he’s proud of it; he likes to brag about how he used the law to his advantage, regardless of who he hurt in the process.
What stories will we be able to tell our children about President Trump?
Why is shafting the little guy a source of brazen pride?
