Not My President, for Long

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
— George Carlin

A friend recently asked a pseudo-Trump supporter, "What does 'not my President'" mean? This would be my answer to that question.

The world is being manhandled by a puerile cretin who once said, “You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass.”

That is not my president.

It is abundantly clear that Trump is intellectually vapid, to the point where even cacti could not grow in the wide desert stretches of his fruit fly brain.

That is not my president.

The entirety of his being is transactional, never transformative, never altruistic, never truly humane.

That is not my president.

There lies but not a trace of curiosity coursing through his veins, but instead a core resolve to divide and conquer at all costs in order to protect the paper tiger beneath his wolf's cloak.  A man whose sole whyfor is to inherit the earth as he has inherited everything else.  A man forever pitiless, vindictive, stone-hearted, bloodthirsty, conscienceless.

That is not my president.

An adulterer is not rare among us, but this is a proud womanizer, a willfully barbaric misogynist who savages women, their rights, their aspirations.

That is not my president.

What Trump is not, is an imposter. He is a boomslang who chews on his victims until they slowly, violently run out of possibilities to expend air from their lungs. George Carlin said, “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.” Trump wholly believes himself to be the god in a vast cluster of grunts. But he is a stupid, stupid, stupid man who galvanizes the stupid, stupid, stupid thinking of stupid, stupid, stupid Americans in order to perpetuate an agenda that somehow seems to be smart and revolutionary and relevant.

So, to all you Trump soldiers, hail your president all you want. It won't take long until he makes your oil and gas companies and your financial companies and your development companies and your healthcare companies and your security companies more commanding than they have ever been while you try to determine how to afford that next medical bill or utility bill or tuition payment or car payment.

Good bye public schools. Goodbye environment. Goodbye women's rights. Goodbye voting rights. Goodbye national parks and protected lands. Goodbye protected people. Goodbye freedom of speech. Hello more gun deaths. Hello more police brutality. Hello more uneducated kids. Hello more children and families in poverty. Hello more illegal searches and seizures.

Trump and his ultra-army of militarized police will avidly put flag burners behind bars but let even more investment bankers plunder life savings and stifle lives. And when Putin or Assad or Jong-un or Xi are ready, they will tear the new administration and this country into pieces that are far tinier than Trump's greasy, little hands. And for anyone who thinks that the 2016 election was not profoundly swayed by foreign interests, regardless of Clinton running a wholly inert campaign, you deserve what you get more than the rest.
