I am becoming increasingly disillusioned with the America I live in due to recent events. Trump has made many Americans forget how to be decent and rational human beings. He pardoned Kim Jong Un for the murder of a college student. In Michael Cohen’s recent testimony, he revealed that Trump has committed several crimes such as campaign finance laws. Some people may question Cohen’s credibility, but unlike the first time he went to Congress, he now has hard evidence to back his claims. Despite all that evidence, Trump’s base and the false Republican Party in general are still blindly loyal to him and are unwilling to impeach him. Previous Presidents have been impeached for less! When is enough going to be enough?
In the days after the 2018 midterm election, I have noticed that Trump is breaking badly. He has been attacking reporters and revoking their press passes whenever they asked honest and logical questions. He fired Jeff Sessions and replaced him with one of his lackeys just so he could gain control over the Russia Investigation. If there was no collusion like he claims, then why is he so hell-bent to stop the probe? Trump is scared and desperate to escape justice whatever the cost. Like some villains in fiction and literature, Trump verbally punishes his minions for their failure for losing in the midterm. Not only did Trump lose control of the House of Representatives, but he also lost key states in the Senate that were vital to his 2020 campaign. To make matters worse for Trump, even though the election is over, the race for the Senate is still going because several states are getting recounted and investigated for voter suppression. Due to this, it is possible that Trump may ultimately lose control of the Senate too. Trump has often been attacking people who criticized him, but these recent events seemed a lot more personal for him. It is likely his attempt to suppress the Russia probe will backfire and he and everyone involved will suffer the consequences. The walls are quickly closing around Trump and he knows it. Even though there is no escape, it is clear that Trump is willing to fight the iron fist of justice until the bitter end, which will completely ruin him, his supporters, his brand name, and entire family. It is going to be a political blood orgy in the next two years and I look forward to the moment when they drag Trump out of the White House while he is crying like a little girl.
GREAT NEWS!!! The Democrats have taken the House of Representatives! Now Trump and his minions can’t do whatever they want anymore. This means more security in the Mueller Investigation, more protection for the other committees, and more insight in Trump’s dealings. Trump now has no choice but to show the entirety of his tax returns, which so far seems damaging. This is the first step to cleaning up Trump’s mess. Overall, we can finally bring Trump and his sycophants to heel. Also, we now have a Democratic Speaker of the House, which means if Mueller finds impeachable evidence against Trump and Pence, then we will have a Democratic President once more. This isn’t the victory I wanted, but I will take it! I’m too happy!
I write this post not as a Democrat, but as a concerned citizen of the United States. I am terrified and disgusted with how America is under Trump’s rule. Since he had taken office, my country has become increasingly more divided. I have seen peaceful protests being attacked by angry drivers in Charlottesville, I have seen hate crimes, I have seen the media being attacked, I have seen children being stolen by our so-called “border guards”, I have seen our “President” destroy our relations with our NATO allies and kissing up to our enemies in Russia and North Korea, I have seen farmers’ livelihoods destroyed by Trump’s senseless trade war, I have seen Trump and his minions try to take healthcare away from countless American citizens 70 times, I have seen our First Amendment rights violated over and over again, I have heard hateful and toxic rhetoric from Trump and his allies day after day, I have seen sexist Senators bully and belittle rape victims, I have seen Senators violate proper protocol while attempting to appoint Brett Kavanaugh just to consolidate their party’s power, I have seen a mad bomber who was brainwashed by Trump’s words try to murder political officials and the free press, and now I have seen Trump fail for the billionth time to be a real leader and seek to further divide us. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! You can say the economy may be good, you can say his policies are good, you can say the tax cuts are good, but at the end of the day, Trump and his self-proclaimed Republicans are unworthy of their offices. The TRUE Republican Party died with John McCain and the Party and Cult of Trump is all that’s left. From the blood of my heart and the very center of my being, I am begging anyone who will listen to help stop this madness. If the Democrats win the House and the Senate, then Trump and his “Republicans” will be brought to heel and we can have some sense of stability and normalcy in our country. I am not asking you to change parties or beliefs. I am asking you to help stop a madman and his sycophants from dividing us any further.
For the past couple days, a series of bombs attempted to assassinate the Obamas, Clintons, CNN, and other critics of Trump. Fortunately, none of the bombs went off and the FBI received an ample amount of evidence to hunt the suspect down. However, I fear this crisis is far from over. Trump may not have made the bombs or sent them in the mail, but his hateful words started the whole damn thing. He has been spreading so much fear, hatred, and distrust that this was inevitable. Trump was given an opportunity to unify the nation in the wake of this crisis and he failed. He may have called for unity, but his words were hollow because shortly afterwards he went back to his usual self by attacking the media. He could try to calm his base down, but it is too late. Pandora’s Box has been opened and I don’t know if it can be closed again. The American people want unity in the wake of this crisis, but they will NEVER find it in Trump because spreading fear and hate is all he is good at. All of this madness has to stop NOW!!! Trump better pray that all of the bombs have been found because if there are more and they explode and kill people, then Trump will have as much blood on his hands as the bombers themselves.
I am thinking of including clips from the media in my new superhero series, which will depict on how certain important figures feel regarding the rise of both superheroes and superhumans in general. I got the idea from how there were news clips being shown in The Dark Knight Returns, where several important figures debate about their personal feelings and analysis about Batman. I watch a lot of news so it should not be hard at all to find suitable inspiration for my new project. Instead of smart phones and regular televisions, these shows will be seen through holographic display screens.
I have been observing events for some time, analyzing the landscape and taking in the facts, and reaching conclusions. I am concerned about what is happening to both my country and the world at large. To begin with, I am concerned about the consequences Trump’s so-called “fake news” nonsense. At his latest rally, he has whipped his supporters into a frenzy and there were hints that they wanted to attack reporters because they were brainwashed by Trump’s nonsense about the media. As an autism ambassador, I have a decent understanding of the inner workings of the human mind. When you whip a bunch of people into a frenzy, you can get them to do anything, including attacking reporters. Some of these rallies even took special precautions to protect reporters in case the crowd wanted blood.
It’s not just reporters that are in danger because of Trump’s war on the media. I learned that a rancher in Texas attacked anti-Trump protestors with a gun because he was brainwashed by Trump’s “fake news” nonsense. The protestors were trying to launch a balloon that said, “You are not alone” in Spanish in order to let the separated children know they had the protestors’ support. They were trying to help the children and give them hope and this brainwashed man attacked them because he accepted Trump’s “fake news” nonsense. This is how the truth dies in America, with a tyrant’s propaganda.
This is the dark genius behind Trump’s war on the media. He has lied so much and manipulated people’s views so greatly that he is effectively slowly turning America against itself. Some may ask how this happened. Well, Hitler once said “people swallow lies easily if they are big enough”. Mentioning Hitler may be extreme, but there are clear similarities between how he and Trump use propaganda and misinformation to brainwash their citizens. I am terrified about what is going to happen to the world around me as Trump continues to create chaos and disorder with his silver tongue.
