The man who currently occupies the White House has a problem of needing to not just refute the assertions of those who disagree with him, but to do all he can to destroy them. In what appears to be a new low, even for someone who has castigated a gold star family and repeatedly lied to the American people, he is now issuing forth on a path of verbal destruction against those poor souls who have already been visited by destruction in Puerto Rico. Americans who are literally begging for help from America.
We are long past the point of needing to care about whether he understands what he is doing or why. The fact, is that he has repeatedly done and said things that threaten and hurt the nation, from supporting white nationalist tactics designed to reboot the Civil War to bringing the world to the doorstep of nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula. He is childlike in his reactions, dividing rather than joining. He wounds rather than heals, lashing out with all the power at his command from the greatest bully-pulpit in the world.
Be it from picking at open wounds of racial hatred and fear to pitting football fans one against the other under the guise of patriotism, he is tearing us apart. Assisted by Russian bots, he sews clouds of chaos, confusion and division, and then hides behind his evil creation while dreaming up his next diversion to deflect from the truth of his actions.
He has repeatedly shown an ignorance of both history and contemporary reality. Now, he openly attacks injured and suffering Americans. Donald J. Trump, must be impeached. Those who continue to support this madness will be forever complicit in the damage he continues to inflict, both here on the mainland and on the island of Puerto Rico, which, as he has so vacuously put it, remains surrounded by “big water, ocean water.”
God, help us. It appears the cowards in Congress certainly won’t.
