Let’s clear up two things first before I deal with this guy.
Number one, Hillary Clinton is single biggest criminal in mainstream politics in my lifetime. That’s a significant claim, considering that includes both Richard Nixon and Dick Cheney. The Lizard Queen, if elected, will likely be one of the most corrupt presidents in US history, along with, or perhaps even surpassing, past presidents like her husband, Bush, Harding, and Grant.
Number two, the fact that Trump won the Republican nomination and may win the presidency is at least a moderately good thing no matter how bad he personally might be. This is because for the first time in perhaps the last 100 years, the elites did not get to choose the two “choices” we Americans have as our next big goverment, corrupt, warmongering, corporatist president. That’s a good thing.
Don’t get me wrong. It won’t turn America around; that ship sailed long ago and the United States as a long-term nation state is doomed along with Europe. Yet, I have to admit that I had a smile on my face when it was clear Trump had won the Republican nomination. Not because Trump will make a good president; he’ll be a terrible president if he wins because he’s a corrupt piece of shit as I’m about to demonstrate, but because it was nice to see the elites punched in the face at least once before the civilization they destroyed finally goes bye-bye. Watching these panic attacks suffered by DC insiders (like Bill Kristol) has been delicious.
With that out of the way, you’ve got to resist the American cultural Societal Programming in your mind that says that if one presidential candidate is bad, the other one is acceptable. Nope. Donald Trump is an utterly corrupt piece of shit who will be a dreadful president and make a huge mess if he wins, following along with our last three dreadful presidents in row (Clinton, G.W. Bush, and Obama).
Over the last two weeks, my opinion of Trump has gone from mildly negative to sharp disgust. My guess was that he was the typically mildly corrupt, opportunist, corporatist billionaire but no more so than most of that type. Now, I’m convinced he is truly corrupt and lying to everyone. Here are the two biggest reasons why:
1. Amazingly, he will not release his tax returns. That’s pretty much done it for me. He’s pretty much said he will not be releasing his tax returns after saying that he would. Even after insulting Mitt Romney for not releasing his tax returns soon enough, Trump has done a 180 on this, and is now saying that the fact Mitt Romney released his tax returns cost him the election. You can see him saying this at 9:35 in this video here.
If you believe this crap about how he’s not releasing his tax returns because he’s under audit, you are a moron. Every presidential candidate has released their tax returns, including guys like Nixon who were under audit at the time. Trump is not releasing his tax returns because Mr. Badass is being a pussy and is hiding something. The theory right now is that he’s hiding that he has debt or investments in Russia. That might be true, but I think the real reason is that Trump isn’t worth nearly as much money as he says he is, which will negatively affect his brand, which is the most valuable business asset he owns and sells. He says he’s worth $8 billion. Bullshit. It’s very possible his actual net worth is $2 billion or even less. If word got out about that, the Trump name, which he sells via licensing for big bucks, would take a huge hit in sellable value. Trump can’t allow that, period.
I will state for the record that if Trump releases his entire recent tax returns before November, then I will rescind my accusation of him being corrupt. I won’t be holding my breath though. I think he’s painted himself into a corner and can’t release his returns at this point. Speaking of that corner…
2. He secretly offered the job of President to John Kasich. For a about a year now, the left-wing rumor/hope going around was that Trump never intended on winning and just ran for President as a business / marketing move. I didn’t believe this, but now I think that’s exactly what’s happened.
As CNN and other news outlets reported about two weeks ago, Trump’s sons were searching for a Vice President, and Don Jr. told John Kasich that if he took the job, he essentially would be running the entire country, both domestic policy and foreign policy. (More info and sources here.)
If that sounds crazy, you’re right. This would have made Kasich the most powerful Vice President in US History, even more so than the monstrous Dick Cheney, who essentially ran Bush’s foreign policy.
Kasich was confused by the offer to say the least, and when he asked what Trump would be doing, the answer was that he’ll be “making America great again.”
I’m sorry folks, but Trump is a fucking fraud, and you really shouldn’t be buying any of his bullshit. I always had a feeling he never really wanted the job of President and wanted to focus on his business ventures instead, and it looks like I was right. He is not going to turn this country around and he’s not the savior a lot of you right-wingers think he is, just like Obama was not the savior the left-wingers thought he was in 2008.
Americans keep falling for this “this guy will save us!” crap over and over again, and it’s making us look stupid (probably deserved at this point). Just like Obama was, Trump is a corrupt charlatan and he’s lying to you.
Snap out of it.
