Un-reality and the Fake President

Power does not corrupt it merely attracts the corruptible.

~Frank Herbert, Dune

The current holder of the office of President of the United States is the unparalleled exemplar of this statement. All the little fish that circle around him, feeding off of him, they can’t hold a candle to the corruption in that peevish-little-orange-menace’s bile filled heart.

On Veteran’s Day, six days ago, T-Rump sat sulking in the residence of the of the White House. He did not visit any of the wounded veterans at Walter Reed, neither did the first lady, or anyone from his family.

Not one of the Trump’s went to Arlington Cemetery, to pay their respects to all of the people who are buried there, who gave their lives in our nation’s conflicts.

None of them ever served.

They couldn’t.

The Trumps do not have a modicum of selflessness about them.

T-Rump was sad that his trip to Paris was so poorly received. He spent the rest of the week whining about his bad press.

He lost a law suit with CNN concerning the freedom of the press, and exactly what authority the White House has to grant access to the media. As it turns out, the courts say that they have very little.

T-Rump appointed a man named Whitaker, to be the acting Attorney General of the United States. The appointment appears to be in contravention of protocol, of federal statues, and of the appointments clause of the Constitution itself.

T-Rump does not care.

He pretends to own the moniker of the Law and Order President, while he shortsightedly seeks to subvert the rule of law at every turn.

He does not think the laws of the United States should apply to him or his family, or anyone he chooses to exempt from it, a political ally, a financier, even a murderous Crown Prince from the House of Saud.

Some real critics have emerged against this charlatan from the conservative wing of American politics. They have called out the GOP for having turned itself into a cult of personality.

To win at any cost, has become the name of the game.

The acting Attorney General’s only qualification for the post appears to have been his public and vocal criticisms of the probe being led by Special Counsel Robert Muller, into the conspiracy to defraud the People of the United States, by Russia and a cadre of homegrown actors, many of which served on the T-Rump Campaign, and in his administration, and the obstruction of justice that followed.

The acting Attorney General auditioned for his role on several news outlets and in person, while he served as Attorney General Jeff Sessions Chief of Staff. He met with the Fake President many times, while they plotted this step.

Never mind the fact that his appointment to that office is illegal, never mind the fact that he has several conflicts of interest for which Justice Department protocol will require that he recuse himself. Never mind the fact that he served as a member of the board of directors for a company in Florida being investigate for financial fraud, for bilking senior citizens out of their retirement savings.

Power attracts the corruptible, like moths to the flame, and the biggest flame of them all is the orange tyrant living in the White House.
