"The Coup Has Started....." (Whistleblower's lawyer, early 2017)
When all else fails, such as honesty, integrity, and dignity, throw yourself on the inherent sympathy and kindness of the American people. Behold the defense of President* Trump that is coming to the fore. Trump is to be made a figure who deserves support simply because he is constantly besieged.
The 'rationales' for Trump's behavior and actions bounce to and fro hoping something will stick. The latest broad theme is that there has been an ongoing 'coup' against him that began before he even took office, and whatever unfortunate actions he takes, such as trying to bribe a foreign country into helping him cheat in the next election, are done only out of his frustration at being treated so unfairly by "liberals" and the mainstream media. The argument is that MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post forced him into impeachable conduct because they were irrationally unfair to him for the past 3 years. All he wants is "fair" coverage.
It is true that many people have always believed Trump is not worthy of the presidency. These are pictures from the day after he took office.
The bottom photo is from Grant Park in Chicago, where I live, where 300,000 people marched simply to protest the fact that Donald Trump was now the president of the United States.
Remember , this was the day after he took office.
Millions of people protested around the country, and they protested Trump's existence as president of the United States.
Was Trump being picked on, at that point in time? Of course not. It is extremely well known and well documented that Trump is not fit to hold the office of president. He wasn't fit on election day, and he wasn't fit on Jan 20, 2017 when he took office. And , of course, he's not fit today, and he is certainly not fit to seek re-election.
On what basis should anyone now display sympathy for Donald Trump? Based on what? How about the 10,000 plus lies, falsehoods and misleading statements he has made in public since he took office? Is that sympathetic behavior?
Should he be given sympathy after he has attacked hundreds of American citizens on his twitter account ? , which he himself claims is his official means of communicating with the nation.
Does he deserve sympathy for making an untold number of laughably ignorant comments about a myriad of subjects, some important, some trivial?
I have said, quite a few times on this site, that Trump is a KNOWN liar, crook, bigot, and moron. I don't repeat that line without forethought or do so lightly. Someone who is a known liar, crook, bigot, and moron is not fit to hold high office in the United States of America. It is completely to be expected that there would be people who want to remove him. And it is completely normal for them to talk about it, even every day.
The truly sad part is that it was well known before election day in 2016 that Trump is a known liar, crook, bigot, and moron, and yet many people voted for him anyway.
Well, they were fooled once (to put an optimistic spin on it), but the foolishness should end now and they should call for a new Republican candidate for 2020.
Or we can continue resisting Donald Trump every day for as long as it takes.
