So Why Is He Still In Office?
The fundamental issue that underlies Trump’s presidency remains stupefying
As long as Trump remains in office, it becomes quite evident that our inaction has given the legitimacy we afford him and his narcisisstic supply of callousness and bigotry. Trump has failed to impress on so many levels that it has become both onerous and monotonous to keep tally and pay attention to what is at stake — which is our American livelihood.
That somone granted with the position of such great power and influence would politicize it in the worst way possible to feed their own narcissism and to appease their narcissistic supply of callous and racist, America first following is undeniably malevolent and immoral, and definitely unAmerican to most of the conscientious citizens of the U.S.
I say most because I really want to believe that most citizens of the U.S. are not inclined to perceive Trump in any way that is honorable and trustworthy. Trump’s best efforts and discursive speeches at rallies assuage the minds of a large enough minority whose majoritative legacy and status quo of yesteryear appreciate abusive, threatening and abrasive language aimed at silencing and humiliating others who oppose patriarchal whiteness or of whom are simply perceived marginally by the social dominance orientation acculturated here as U.S. citizens.
That this voter miscalculation, error prone constitution, and faulty system of checks and balances within our government has led us to this point of plausible return to unification and amends is not just melodramatic optimism, but a reckoning with what has led us morally astray.
However, this remains elusive as the stunts that President Trump has pulled just this week alone, with little to no rebuke or consequence is stupefying. Mr. Trump decidedly thought that an ill-advised and intellectually flawed attemtp at diplomacy would be a moment of glory for him and his self-proclaimed deal making skills leading up to the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
This of course was unbeknownst to everyone and quite frankly I am sure the Taliban leaders had no idea that they were going to a retreat…in America, about 60 miles northwest of the nation’s capitol.
Stupefier #1. The Taliban is an insurgent group of militants who have claimed responsibility for the plotted and planned terrorist attack on 9/11 that has killed thousands of Americans then and thereafter since 2001. And you invited or expected that they would come here to talk…to you…and agree to a ceasefire just because…of you wanting to withdraw forces in an aimless war…and then they would return without the threat of being held hostage…and in an attempt to simply one up President Barack Obama and his Afghan efforts at ceasefire and peace?!?!?!
“The problem with the Trump administration’s approach isn’t negotiating with the Taliban, it’s the president’s reckless behavior in the service of himself that fans the flames of his chaos-first foreign policy,” Stephen Miles, executive director of progressive organization Win Without War, said in an email statement. “This latest incident adds to the pile of evidence that Trump isn’t the dealmaker he claims to be.”

Domestically, Trump has decided to rescue Los Angeles and San Francisco from the homeless, or so it appears, or so he seems to be suggesting.
Trump admin on homeless: 'We're not rounding people up or anything yet'
During his remarks to the House Republican Conference last night, Donald Trump suggested Los Angeles and San Francisco…
So where is this newfound interest coming from to a problem that has been decades upon decades in the making, and can be significantly contributed by the industry he has garnered most of his wealth from.
President Trump has ordered White House officials to launch a sweeping effort to address homelessness in California, citing the state’s growing crisis, according to four government officials aware of the effort.
The planning has intensified in recent weeks. Administration officials have discussed using the federal government to get homeless people off the streets of Los Angeles and other cities and into new government-backed facilities, according to two officials briefed on the planning.
But it is unclear how they could accomplish this and what legal authority they would use. It is also unclear whether the state’s Democratic politicians would cooperate with Trump, who has sought to embarrass them over the homelessness crisis with repeated attacks on their competency.
While the Trump administration including HUD secretary Ben Carson has offered no solution nor strategy to the homelessness crisis, Trump has been hinting to Fox News since earlier this summer that something imminent is going to be done.
“You take a look at what’s going on with San Francisco, it’s terrible. So we’re looking at it very seriously. We may intercede. We may do something to get that whole thing cleaned up. It’s inappropriate,” Trump told Tucker Carlson in July. “Now, we have to take the people and do something. We have to do something.”
Stupefier#2. “We’re not rounding people up or anything yet”.
This after sabotaging Obamacare because it is known as Obamacare. This after proposing pseudo profound middle-class tax cuts…again.
Trump's fake tax cuts are back
The White House keeps floating the idea of more tax cuts. You should be skeptical of that. Amid growing concerns about…
This guy is nothing but a charlatan and he is a master of playing on negative emotions, gaslighting adversaries for politicizing and racializing a grotesque appeal to his authoritarian and narcissistic attitude and beliefs embedded in this aberrant nationalism.
Which in and of itself is truly stupefying.
