Just Let Trump be Trump

 How many times did I hear just that when listening to the news during the last four years. Well, they let Trump be Trump and see what happened yesterday. I wish I could say I was shocked and surprised. But, I wasn't. Not even a little bit. For the past four years I have watched this president "just be Trump." You watched too. But did you see it the same way I saw it?

This is not the first time I have written about Donald Trump on my blog. But I hope it will be the last time. I hope something is now done about him. At least he did not win the election. I have been speaking out about this president since he was elected. Actually, before he was elected. I have lost family and friends because of him. They bought into his bullshit. And I just can't let things go. I knew he would not be good for America. I knew he would bring us more problems than he brought us any good. In my opinion, he is not a good man. Good men have a completely different DNA than Donald Trump. 

One of the main reasons I did not like him is that he is a LIAR. He lied and he lied and he lied. And there were very few people who could stand up to him. I would hear things like: "but the economy is good", or "the Stock Market is better than it has ever been". America sold her soul for money. It's as simple as that. I would rather die poor tomorrow than die thinking I did not speak out about this man.

What I watched yesterday on TV was disgusting. It was terrifying. It was abnormal. It was amoral. And it was incited by the president of the United States of America. And that should give all of us pause. I listened to his entire speech yesterday. The one where he stood behind a bullet proof screen and told his crazed supporters that "we will never give up." "YOU'LL NEVER TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY WITH WEAKNESS. YOU HAVE TO SHOW STRENGTH AND YOU HAVE TO BE STRONG". Those were his words. Then they marched down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol Building and overtook it with anger and violence. FOUR PEOPLE WERE KILLED. Four of his supporters. But nevertheless, KILLED. His own attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told the supporters, at the same rally, that we needed to have "trial by combat". 

I am appalled.  But, more than 7 million people voted for him in 2020. 7 million!!! Did those people believe what he has fed to them for four years? Or are there that many people who are just in it for the fight? If he just gave them the best economy and the greatest stock markets of all time, what are they so angry about?? That he lost?? Maybe some of them should have worked harder to get him re-elected. I know how hard I worked to see that he not be re-elected. 

He will be gone in two weeks. But in the meantime what more harm will come to America? What can be done to prevent this in the future? I am going to do everything I can to make sure those who supported him in Washington D.C.will not get to continue with their dream to become president. I'm looking at you Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz. I hold you both responsible for the part you played in this. But there are many others. Their is a long, long list of those who enabled him and just turned their heads. 

A lot of people said, "just let Trump be Trump."

  1. I predicted the same thing before he was elected. It is good to see his followers abandoning him. Even though I wonder what took so long. He is a coward and what he did was illegal and he should be arrested

    1. I think he has some followers who are abandoning him. Not enough. And I see them more as the rats are abandoning the ship. Too many of them enabled him to become what he was as a president.

  3. In May 2016 Lindsay Graham said that if the Republican Party nominated Trump it would be "destroyed" and they "would deserve it". And here we are. I was an elected Republican politician for twenty years until the Party wouldn't support me because I wasn't pro-life - as though that is the most important thing for our safety and economy. I voted for Hillary and Joe. Those 70 million people who voted for Trump have no sense, morals or decency, IMO.

    1. I used to be a Republican but I changed when Bush took us into an needless war in Iraq. I worry about our country that has so many that believe his lies.

  4. I agree with everything you said. On the day of the event I was stunned and sad beyond measure, the next day ... just angry! So very angry that one sick and defective individual could command the minds of so many Americans with his brainwashing techniques. And Angry, so very Angry that so much damage could be caused by one individual. There has always been fringe groups in this country and there always will be - but we have never had a leader who could galvanize these groups into one destructive mob. Sadly, that individual turned out to be a President.

    1. Me too Elaine. I am now just furious that he will get by with it all. I have never wished such horrible things to come to one man as I have to Trump. He deserves every bad thing that will happen to him. He will NEVER be president again in this country. Time for him to defect to Russia

  5. It was definitely a sad day for your country.

  6. It was a sad day, but thank goodness our votes were upheld by the constitution. What we do when we don't like someone, we vote for someone else.

    1. That is how it should be. But there just weren't enough of us to see what he would do to our America.

  7. After his election I took to Twitter. I found so many of like mind there. It helped in 2016. That's when I started following my MOC. (He's pro-impeachment, BTW. He put out a statement that he's on board. He voted for the first impeachment, too.)

    There are so many things to say, but I would be here writing all day if I did. I agree with you. We knew who he was 5+ years ago, yet so many chose to go along. I think this is a lesson our country needs to learn, and we keep mucking it up. Sigh.

    1. I'm on Twitter too. What is your Twitter handle. Hilarious that he is now banned on social media. I hope our country learned something. But I don't think many of them have. Many are already making excuses for him

    1. Same here. But I do worry about what more he will do. He has a lot of America's secrets and he never really cared about America in the first place
