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?
I had a funny idea regarding Trump’s obsession with his vanity wall project. In Game of Thrones, the character known as Hodor had a seizure and kept saying “Hold the door” until it slurred into “Hodor” and it became all he could say. What if something similar happens to Trump where he has a seizure and keeps saying “Build the wall” before slurring it into “Billall” and it becomes all he can say. Lately, talking about the wall that will never be built is all Trump talks about so I thought it would be fun if this happened to him.
I got this very pleasing gift for Christmas. It is toilet paper that has all of Trump’s Tweets printed on them; every lie and every insult. This gift gives me a golden opportunity to properly wipe away Trump’s lies and insults. I will be saving this for either Trump’s impeachment or when Robert Mueller reveals the full extent of his investigation. I can’t wait!
After watching the news, I had a thought about something to add in my futuristic dystopian series. One of the cases we deal with in the real world is illegal immigration. While some of these individuals are a danger, most are desperate people seeking asylum and a better life for themselves and their families. Despite their intentions to improve their lives and give their children a future they can be proud of, these immigrants are often regarded as subhuman by the native population. More recently, migrant families had their children stolen from them and had them locked up in cages like animals. These cruel and inhumane actions against migrants made me wonder how illegal immigration will look like five thousand years in the future. In my story, there will be a civilization that is divided up into multiple districts and moving from one district to another is strictly prohibited. If the borders of the districts are crossed, the migrant parents would be deported to their native district while their children would be executed on the spot in order to act as a deterrent to other would-be migrants. Even so, some districts are more impoverished than others and desperate citizens try to sneak through the borders regardless of the risk. This form of injustice will be one of the atrocities my new superheroes will be battling throughout the series.
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.
