Yuck, yuck, Donald Trump is doing something stupid again. Fine and dandy, I and I believe the bulk of Americans need the entertainment in our nationally insecure lives.
Of what I have not seen in all the while since Donald Trump was elected is what his election and presidency indicates about the current state of the United States. Yes, he garnered almost 3 million votes less than Clinton, but still when looking at a map of the swath of states in which Trump garnered a majority vote, screaming out is “Something is Very Wrong”! A national decline seems underlying Trump’s electoral success, with little attention–even in left-wing sites like CommonDreams–paid to seeking exploration of this decline.
In confessedly my judgment, rather than seeking to understand a state-of-affairs of increasing personal insecurity, Congressional Republicans are hell-bent on exacerbating the insecurity (cut health-care, etc.). As for Congressional Democrats, if one stops to notice, from them almost nothing has been heard (Perhaps we shouldn’t cut health-care SO much, etc.). No national discussion is occurring on the state of the country, which I perceive as very dangerous indeed, Donald Trump being indicative of the price paid for this indifference.
