Okay, so somehow Trump cajoled the right people to win the Presidency, and we have him seated in the Oval Office. Now what? In one week’s time, Trump has done so much damage and even those that voted for him are questioning his motives. Yes, it can be said out loud: President Trump is mentally ill. Even BEFORE he was elected we knew he is a narcissist. Now, he has been given unimaginable power and is rapidly untying all the ends that the Obama Administration had managed to pull together. Decades-long conversations between countries and agreements made that span back to the Vietnam War Era are endangered if not already extinct with his very pointed signature.
Half of our Americans, a segment of our society that we work alongside and perhaps even share an evening meal with each night, believed that Trump would remedy the failing system that Obama had overseen. That, for once, the little guy in the very rural communities would be considered.
With the Affordable Care Act nearing the guillotine with no replacement in sight, it will be the rural Americans that feel it the most, and immediately. Small rural hospitals will be impacted as the majority of their patients would not even walk through their doors without the possibility of some sort of insurance offered by the Federal Government.But, that is just one of the growing list of collateral damages that will flow as seamlessly as the XL Pipeline. Has anyone heard of the two major oil spills in Saskatchewan, Ontario where the pipeline originates? Our news media does have its problems…one of which is that it has tunnel vision. It only follows the lead down the street, if it turns a corner…oh well.
So, who can remove Trump from his high throne? I’m surprised that the rather simple chairs haven’t been replaced with gold, as he surrounded himself with in NYC. Nancy Pelosi, Paul Ryan, you two MUST ADMIT that you have a larger problem on your hands than even most people suspect. Who can be the replacement? Pence? Trump this morning bemoaned the fact that after Schwartzenegger took over his Apprentice show the ratings have tanked, Arnold suggested that they change places!!
I’LL TAKE HIM!
Of course, from Trump, we will never know the answer to that one.
