Yesterday, Donald Trump addressed Congress in what might be described as a state-of-the-union speech. The speech could only be described as a speech given by the President of La La Land.
I failed to tune in yesterday. I couldn’t bring myself to ruin the day. However I watched this morning, knowing that I would at least be able to respond immediately with this post. As you listen to the speech, you will notice that after each remark of Trump you hear applause and see members of Congress standing up to show their support. After awhile you will tire of hearing the applause. Note that it is the Republicans who were applauding and standing. The right side of Congress was neither applauding or standing.
Here is the full speech:
To me the most amazing thing about the speech was the sheer lunacy of the contradictory remarks. He proclaimed that he would implement “massive tax cuts” for middle Americans and corporations. Concurrently he promised to increase military spending, increase spending on infrastructure, improve education, improve health care, build a wall, reduce crime, improve veterans care and benefits, eliminate illegal drugs from being brought into the country, ensure clean air and clean water, guarantee accessible and affordable child care for everyone, find new cures for rare diseases, and take new and additional steps to “keep our nation safe.” I felt like I was watching a beauty pageant where the contestant advocated “word peace” without a clue about how to make it happen, and no responsibility for it. It was even more offensive that just the day before Trump explained that dealing with health care was more complicated that anyone could imagine, and that reduction of taxes would have to wait.
Bernie Sanders highlighted not only what was wrong with Trump’s speech, but also listed things he obviously did not say!
Michael Moore explained how Trump lied
and used a widow’s grief for his political advantage, when he was responsible for the death of her husband.
My criticism of Trump is not a sign that I am not patriotic. My criticism is proof that I am. It is because I love America and wish to see it prosper for my children and grandchildren that I am compelled to do all I can to warn American patriots that Donald Trump is a danger to you and our country.
Sarah Palin has faded into obscurity. While I may feel compelled to write from time to time about her, I am redesigning the blog to demonstrate my new commitment to help reveal the danger of Donald Trump as the President of the United States. Please help me make people aware of the danger of Trump. Any time that I write an article on the blog that resonates with you, please send a link to any and everyone you can. Together we can make a difference.
