Trump is disaster to the country


January 18, 2018

To The Eagle:

Future scholars will sift through Trump’s digital proclamations the way we now read the chroniclers of Nero’s Rome - to understand how an unhinged emperor can make a mockery of republican institutions, undo the collective nervous system of a nation and degrade the whole of public life.

Chaotic, corrupt, incurious, infantile, grandiose, obsessed with gaudy real estate and his own inflated self regard, Donald Trump is of Neronic temperament. Longing for undying fame, he has always craved attention. Now the whole world is his audience.

Trump has no comprehension of policy and cares about it less. He surrounds himself with aides who are either wildly incompetent or utterly defeated in their attempts to domesticate the mulish and bizarre object of their attentions.

There are no lingering illusions about this president’s capacities. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s public characterization of Trump as “a f***ing moron” serves as the definitive summary of a character a mile wide and an inch deep.

In the meantime there is little doubt about who Donald Trump is, the harm he has done already and the greater harm he threatens. He is unfit to hold any public office much less the highest in the land.

Mine is not merely the orthodoxy of the opposition. His panicked sycophants have been leaking word of this rolling disaster from his first weeks in office.

The president of our country has become the leading security threat to the United States of America.
