We are nine months into the Trump administration and it has become nearly impossible to recollect the laundry list of scandal, lies, immoral, crass, ignorant, flat out dumbfounding and totalitarian anti American sentiment that has come out of the White House since. It began on day one, in which Trump in his inauguration speech depicted the United States as some sort of post apocalyptic ruin, a perverted dystopian world view which helped gain him votes to become President due to rampant propaganda against the prior administration, a lie that was exposed after it was revealed the United States unemployment rate was a legitimate number as it continued its tick lower. Now, Trump was proud of the unemployment rate, no credit to his predecessor. The stock market, who had been in a steady bull run for all of his predecessors 8 year term, was suddenly now his greatest accomplishment. The distorting and twisting of reality, the gaslighting since, has known no bounds. From lying about the inauguration crowd being the largest ever, a trivial matter, to lying about why he fired Comey, a matter of obstruction of justice, to lying about anyone whom he hates to make himself look better. Which he does have a heart of hate, as it drips in form of his spiteful twitter feed, his sociopathic hypocrisy. From decrying the qty of Obama’s golf outings which seem to be eclipsed by none other than his own, to his lying of conversations in which other people present can easily refute. The credibility of the adminstration of course was crumbled long before the administration came to be, and the list of lies, gaslighting, conspiracy theories and deflections that have been committed since then is hard to grasp in full. But at this nine month mark it can be easy to succumb to his twisted distortions and give up resisting due to mental fatigue and some may have. But nonetheless, the base, wholly under the spell of propaganda that has elected Trump and twisted their world view into a polarized perception wholly consumed in the type of bias that fervent propaganda provides, seems to hover around the low 30% mark. It is remarkable that George Bush was lower, considering George Bush, who many reasonable people considered the worst President of our era due to his unjust invasion on false pretenses into Iraq and the subsequent fear of overreaching government power through the Patriot Act, has become a voice of reason. His presidency seems like nothing but somewhat of a negative now during this current era in which Trump brazenly blasts through the lowest of lows in a blistering pace in which rarely a week goes by in which the White House isn’t in some blithering discombobulated form of trying to dig its way out of reasonable public condemnation.
There is no reasonable disagreement to the horrendous ignorance and narcissism on display by this President, what you will see is bizarre deflections toward Obama or Hillary to gloss over the bizarre, lowly, deplorable lie, gaslighting and juvenile mannerisms of Trump. Trump is the hero of the sociopaths and psychopaths, the nihilists and those who hate government with a passion, because what would they care we have a despicable human preside in the white house? It is a passion for chaos and destruction that suits their bias, and Trump provides it. Not only are white supremacists emboldened in our current era, so are those who violently oppose it. The nation divides further and Trump’s narcissim and refusal to admit guilt, to admit the truth and his unwavering ability to lie even to himself about his own grandiosity continues to take its toll on the nation. There have been cracks in the base, but the fervency is high and the sociopaths have come out of the woodwork, continually trolling the internet, the media, or anyone who speaks out against Trump.
The day to day anti american fascist like sentiment coming from the White House in these nine months can be hard to remember, but here are a few more – as we must remember we have never seen the likes of such depravity inhabiting our highest office. Clearly we see a picture in which his bizarre quest for grandiosity is more important than truth, than reason, than the nation itself.
1)Gaslighting us all about the inauguration size for the sake of propaganda. A stupid maneuver born out of his own narcissism. Perhaps he was lying to himself, ever hell bent on a way to feed his own grandiosity regardless of truth. His anger when he and his lacky deviant administration press secretary was called out on it was apparent. Travels to the CIA on his first day as President, whom he already disrespected in a blatant way due to their findings on Russia’s involvement in the election. Feeling it was an attack and way to put his presidency. This, disrespect of the CIA’s findings in favor of his reputation is Anti American, not only is Trump ignorant, he is not suitable to make a judgment call dismissing the CIA’s findings. We know why he did it though.. narcissism. While in front of the Memorial wall of the fallen CIA, Trump disrespectfully and narcissistically rails against the press and says ““There is nobody who feels stronger about the intelligence community and the CIA than Donald Trump,”. Anyone speaking in third person about themselves has clear issues with their ego.
2) Attempts to order the construction of a multi billion dollar border wall, that a $50 ladder can conquer. A symptom of his stupidity, shortsightedness and ignorance.
3)Follows a lie that millions of voters voted illegally to soothe his ego of why he lost the popular vote. Early on there was a campaign to get to the bottom of it, which resulted in the quest for voter data from all states. Presented as facts with no evidence, his narcissism damages the integrity of the the highest office again, and presents damaging propaganda taken as the bible to millions of his supporters. A conspiracy theory, backed by nothing but his all consuming narcissism – which has easily become a consistent and recurring theme in his attempt to hoist his disastrous presidency into what he wants it to be, one of the greatest ever.
4) Fire Sally Yates for doing her job, blocking Trump’s unlawful travel ban which was then subsequently blocked by multiple judges and revised until it can pass. Trump’s ignorant brazen action made him look incompetent, erratic, xenophobic as well as stupid. His firing of Yates for competency was preceded in ignorance by his firing of Comey a couple months later.
This is Trump’s first few weeks only. It was a disaster from the beginning and there is no sign that it won’t relent, week after week of scandal and stupidity, juvenile bickering and name calling, pointing the finger and gas lighting, lying and Nixonian coverups, Trump’s presidency began in lies and is on pace to end in lies, a problem sustained by propaganda that has no problem forsaking values for the sake of clicks, forsaking truth for the sake of money. This mindset too is Trumps, and it is a scourge of humanity. The sociopathy that supports it rears its ugly head in America.
