Former FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress yesterday. America didn’t learn anything we didn’t already know.
Donald J. Trump, the elected President of these United States of America, has become unhinged.
The tighter the net grows around Donald Trump, the more dangerous he gets. The tighter the net gets around Donald Trump, the more he will feel compelled to act out.
And the more Trump feels compelled to act out, the more dangerous it is for America – Domestically and internationally.
It was clear to all during the long presidential campaign that Candidate Trump was willing to outright lie to millions of his followers who would eat up his fabrications while those whose job is to keep check on the balance of powers compiled longer and longer lists of Trump’s fabrications and business malfeasance’s.
Now, as Trump’s House of Cards is tumbling down around him, now, America needs its real leaders to stand tall and do the right thing.
Most Republican members of Congress whose job it is to guard America’s position of respect not only in the world but in the eyes of its own citizens have grossly abdicated their responsibility for no other reason than to coddle that creepy, hardcore 30% Trumpian base, a base that, when push comes to shove, would prefer to see this nation burned to the ground than ever give up their “leader” Trump to, well, what the rest of the world considers reason and logic and good governance.
This supposed 30% base is the sole reason we hear ridiculous defenses and excuses of Trump’s inexcusable behavior.
Here, we would like to specifically point out Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and second in line to The President of the United States of America.
Ryan, after Comey’s blistering testimony yesterday, gave what can only be the most bizarre excuse imaginable for President Trump’s behavior: That Trump was still “learning on the job.”
Yes, Ryan excused the President for lying and obstruction and appointing cabinet members who Trump knew were under FBI investigation because he was just “learning” this job of president.
Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, since the appearance of Donald J. Trump, has done nothing but suck onto that presidential shark like a blood-sucking remora, following in his despicable trail and feeding on his poisonous venom in some phantom vision of an America based on Hatred and Lies and Recriminations.
In the face of multiple fact-based reports from US intelligence that the Russian intelligence agency the GRU gained access to a US software company that was contracted with programming election machines in 7 different states, and in the face of Trump and his campaign members and his own son-in-law Jared Kushner attempting to set up direct intelligence communications with the Kremlin – that would be Vladimir Putin – by bypassing US intelligence, Rep. Ryan – the second in line to the president – is STILL defending that president whose entire cabinet is acting in a cohesive manner to somehow…create a defacto power-sharing agreement with Russia?
That is the Leadership of The Republican Party.
