In an era where we try to impose the idea of personal responsibility in our daily lives and in our beliefs, Donald Trump seems unwilling to accept any for the violent car crash of a mess that was the white nationalist march in Charlottesville. Trump’s continuous dangling of anti-immigrant, anti-woman and anti-anyone that-doesn’t-look-like-me-rhetoric activates and invigorates the groups such as the ones that descended upon Charlottesville for the “Unite The Right” event today. With a mutual appreciation going on from both sides, the violent of those groups are given the go-ahead to engage in acts of violence such as the one where a car sped into a group of protestors against the white nationalists today that injured 19 and killed one.
Given that this incident occurred, Donald Trump once again for the sake of his presidency which is already in shambles must remain silent to keep his base. His supporters, of which I believe have severe mental issues will argue that the president’s recent statement against happened was a proper response; it was neither proper, nor was it presidential;
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time.”
He didn’t mention Charlottesville, the victims of the attack nor the white nationalists. Right after mentioning the key buzz words of “hatred”, “bigotry” and “violence”, he decided to deflect with “both sides do it too” and “not Barack Obama”. In the moment where he could be considered the most presidential, he made it not only about himself but about deflecting from the greater issue at hand; violence from the alt-right groups that seek to destroy America.
It is time, now more than ever, to get Trump to realize once and for all that the responsibility for what happened today and every other day where similar acts have taken place (violent or otherwise) lies with him. Don’t come at me with “this happened when Obama was in office” because he is gone.
Donald Trump is president. Donald Trump is responsible for this country. Today, he has shown more than ever that he not only is not presidential, he isn’t even a man. For that action of deflection, it is time to put a move on his removal and the removal of anyone like him in his current administration – Omorosa included.
Donald Trump Jr was not interested in help his father win the presidency as he was more interested in being famous; a definition that is tied to his father as he continues to attempt to re-shape America as if it looked like something out of Dark City. Sadly, he wasn’t duped by a government spy or some kind of long-reaching conspiracy; Donald Trump Jr was duped by an email.

Real life always comes first. Except something in this blog today or tomorrow.
I can’t lie about this – I am burned out on anything Trump. I’m burned out on anything that has a similarity to Donald Trump. When that happens, I stop for awhile so that I can feel fresh with what I have to say. This feeling can produce feelings of apathy and I already feel disconnected from everything these days. To keep myself engaged and at peace (not necessarily happy), I try to look for things that interest me. So far, I have found graphic design and music to be interesting to me.

When it comes to the presidency of Barack Obama, re-tweeting disrespectful memes on Twitter does not come to mind. Donald Trump, who is the current president, consistently pushes the idea that he is somehow the best. Of course he knows he isn’t the best – he’s nowhere Roosevelt, Kennedy or even Lincoln. Yet he considers what he does to be a new kind of presidential behavior. Don’t believe me, click below to see his exact words from his Twitter on the subject

Let’s get this out of the way; Officer Jeronimo Yanez was acquitted of the murder of Philando Castile. We’ve been here before with Michael Brown, Alton Sterling, Tamir Rice and countless others. The defenses argument in case comes with some variation, but the meaning behind their statements are the same; my life was threatened, he didn’t comply and he had a weapon. F*** beating around the bush; Philando Castile was murdered – point, blank, period.

I’m assuming the person reading this is an American. If you are, I have a question; why do you need a gun?

I thought the following headline as a jest, but it’s starting to become clear that a job in Trump’s government is essentially a contracting job with loads of responsibility, little pay and no respect. Robert S. Mueller, a former FBI director appointed by The Justice Department to oversee an investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and that country where Putin is from is now, according to a friend of Trump’s, the next on Trump’s list to be fired. To me it’s obvious why: he’s going to do his job, much like Comey and Trump doesn’t want people who can do their job – especially if it involves a detailed investigation into the campaign that brought you here in the first place.

Donald Trump pulled out of the Paris Agreement because he felt that it wasn’t benefitting America, but other countries. He overlooked obviously the part about our climate changing and, without the U.S. involvement in the agreement, the climate will get worse. Here are some ways that, in general, we can educate Donald Trump.
