OBAMA AND TRUMP



It is a sad  state of affairs when he appears that  our sitting President is responsible  for the Trump phenomena which perhaps could result in a President whose political progress is too reminiscent to that of Hitler and his “Brown Shirts”.

According to a first page article in this Sunday’s  New York Times  which I quote in part: “Donald J. Trump arrived at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in April 2011, reveling in the moment as he mingled with the political luminaries who gathered at the Washington Hilton. He made his way to his seat beside his host, Lally Weymouth, the journalist and socialite daughter of Katharine Graham, longtime publisher of The Washington Post.

A short while later, the humiliation started.
The annual dinner features a lighthearted speech from the president; that year, President Obama chose Mr. Trump, then flirting with his own presidential bid, as a punch line.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8TwRmX6zs4&feature=youtu.be&t=2m51s)

He lampooned Mr. Trump’s gaudy taste in décor. He ridiculed his fixation on false rumors that the president had been born in Kenya. He belittled his reality show, “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
Mr. Trump at first offered a drawn smile, then a game wave of the hand. But as the president’s mocking of him continued and people at other tables craned their necks to gauge his reaction, Mr. Trump hunched forward with a frozen grimace”.

------“That evening of public abasement, rather than sending Mr. Trump away, accelerated his ferocious efforts to gain stature within the political world. And it captured the degree to which Mr. Trump’s campaign is driven by a deep yearning sometimes obscured by his bluster and bragging: a desire to be taken seriously.

That desire has played out over the last several years within a Republican Party that placated and indulged him, and accepted his money and support, seemingly not grasping how fervently determined he was to become a major force in American politics. In the process, the party bestowed upon Mr. Trump the kind of legitimacy that he craved, which has helped him pursue a credible bid for the presidency.”

We must hope that somewheres between now and convention time some thing happens to the selection of delegates so that this menace can be shunted aside.

To rely on Hillary being elected ignores the facts that her record is so tainted that there is a possibility remote as it may be, that she may find herself in serious legal difficulties. Certainly she is not the stalwart person that we would wish to be President. Sanders would be an equally bad choice who has no concept of economics and world diplomacy.

  1. What was done in Chicago by the far left is more Nazi like than anything coming from Trump's people!

    2. There is a very elite group of people who are in control and making a whole lot of money off the status quo. They want to keep that control so they orchestrate something like what happened in chicago.
      They brought together disparate groups such as Black Lives Matter, the Communist Party, Bill Ayres . . . all brought together by MoveOn.Org a group run by one of those elite Soros.

  2. Hillary has made some stupid mistakes but is still more capable than any of the Republican candidates. Others in high positions of both parties have made mistakes with emails and other sensitive government items, and this has only gone on so long because of the election year. I used to be a Republican, but Reagan convinced me to become an independent. I still haven't seen a worthwhile Republican to be in the Whitehouse. I hope the party can get themselves in order. Lincoln would not be proud of what he would see today. He could not get elected today either. Sad, but here we are.

    1. Perhaps Kasich may be an acceptable nominee, otherwise I would not like any of the other three. Trump is dangerous, Cruz presents a danger to 1st Amendment, and the empowerment of the religious bigots. Rubio is weak and wishy washy. Hillary's history is one of gwtting away with ethical violations and a sense of amorality. Sanders is a leftist demagogue who also represents an equal danger to our way of life. This is the worst choice I have seen since I voted for Dewey.

    2. The difference between the RNC and DNC is in name only. Professional politicians not looking out for us but for themselves!
      What we have in Congress is a disgrace!
