The Day Donald Trump Declared War On His Own Country
Once upon a time Donald Trump's passionate bromance with Vladimir Putin had its comic qualities.
But not any longer. Not after this.
And what Trump said yesterday was not only dangerous and crazy.
It had the stench of treason.
Donald Trump's call on Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's emails has shocked, flabbergasted and appalled lawmakers and national security experts across the political spectrum, with one saying it was "tantamount to treason."
Leon Panetta, a former CIA director, told CNN's Christiane Amanpour that Trump's comments were "beyond the pale" because he was "in fact asking the Russians to engage in American politics." Later during a panel at the University of Pennsylvania, Panetta ramped up his rebuke, calling Trump’s remarks a “threat to our national security.”
Even many Republicans were appalled.
An aide to House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican who has endorsed Trump, added, meanwhile, that "Russia is a global menace led by a devious thug" and that it should stay out of the U.S. election.
And the scariest thing is nobody can be sure whether Trump is a Russian agent, or dangerously evil, or dangerously ignorant...
Or a maniac who doesn't even realize he is declaring war on his own country.
But what we do know is that if he ever becomes President he will trigger a race war in the United States, eliminate the minimum wage, give millionaires even more tax breaks, rig the Supreme Court to roll back the rights of women and gay people for the next twenty years, abandon the fight against climate change.
And in pursuit of all of the above turn the U.S. into a police state.
For all you have to do is watch this video on his Twitter site, to see the shape of things to come should he ever become President...
And the idea of letting a dangerous demagogue like him anywhere near the nuclear button is simply unthinkable. For he would almost certainly lead America and the whole world to catastrophe.
Just like the ghostwriter of Trump's big selling book the Art of the Deal, a man who spent a lot of time with him, recently warned.
While also revealing that Trump can't listen to anyone, or read anything, for more than two minutes, before he starts talking about HIMSELF.
Which explains why he spends so much time on Twitter, trying to fit the world into 140 characters.
While going after anyone who dares challenge his judgement, like the TV reporter Megyn Kelly with whom he is obsessed, or any of his other enemies real or imagined.
Which alone should make it clear why he should never be President...
He really is too dumb and too dangerous.
As the great American President Barack Obama said so powerfully last night, it is a battle between good and evil.
In passionate support for his successor and righteous anger for her opponent, in a voice we have rarely heard since those heady days of “Yes We Can,” Barack Obama rallied to Hillary Clinton and took it to Donald Trump, Wednesday night, casting this election, not as a contest between Democrats against Republicans or progressives against conservatives, but good against evil. Nothing less.
Anyone who believes anything that absurd Trumpolini says...
“The Donald is not really a plans guy. He’s not really a facts guy either,” the President derided. “Does anyone really believe that a guy who spent his 70 years on this Earth showing no regard for working people is suddenly going to be your champion, your voice?
Should have their heads examined.
He has revealed himself to be capable of treason.
And nobody will be safe until the day he is defeated...
