Nixon is dead, isn’t he?

Let me preface by saying, I do not wish to offend anyone. If I write something political, religious or having to do with sexual orientation or addictions – it is simply my opinion or life experience. That being said, here it goes.

I mentioned in a post this week that I had not written since June and that I had a lot to say about the ridiculous election cycle in 2016.  I am not ashamed to say that I voted for Hillary Clinton, not because I truly agreed with all of her policies and where she wanted to take the country. I just truly believed she was the lesser of two evils.

President Donald Trump has been in office just a little over two months and we have seen nothing but distractions and distortions of the truth by not only Trump but also Sean Spicer, all of Trump’s cabinet and of the Republicans in the House and Senate.

From the time he announced he was running for President, he has consistently whined, complained and blamed everyone else for anything that goes wrong. He has disrespected women, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Muslim Americans , the LGBTQ community – all the while never offering an apology. He tweets from both his personal Twitter account @realDonaldTrump and his Presidential Twitter account @POTUS. My opinion is that President Donald Trump tweets way to much and his tweets are not  professional, productive, nor are they necessary. I also feel many of his tweets are causing our allies to truly rethink their longtime relationship with the United States – which in the end will be very detrimental if we ever have to call on our allies in the event of a war etc.

We are all aware of the investigation regarding all of the alleged activity of the Russians in regard to their meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign in an effort to ensure Donald Trump was elected. We also know that several campaign officials, and others had many conversations with Russian individuals. Trump swears he has never met Vladimir Putin, but we know he has business holdings in Russia  My opinion on this is that there is definitely some connection between President Trump, members of his cabinet, his son in law, his business dealings and Russian individuals – if not Putin himself.

Now to the title of this post. I was only 7 when the Watergate scandal caused President Richard M. Nixon to be the only president to resign from the office. I am a history buff and love learning about our former presidents. We are all aware that Nixon throughout his political career was extremely paranoid, believing that people were always out to get him. He secretly taped every conversation he had in the Oval Office.

Today we have President Donald Trump who never takes responsibility for his words or actions. He continuously blames others for what he has said, done, or even actions that do go his way – example being the recently failed Republican healthcare bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare. He has the nerve to accuse former President Barrack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign – while providing ZERO EVIDENCE of such action.

Unfortunately the American people unwittingly elect President Richard Milhouse Nixon from the grave in electing President Donald J. Trump. I pray that this man will grow up and stay off Twitter. I also believe that one of three things will happen before his term ends and can run again: some crazy idiot will attempt to assassinate him (I do not wish this at all), we will wind up in World War III because of his disrespect and alienation of other countries, he will be impeached and we will be stuck with Mike Pence who is just as bad.

That’s “What’s Rattling My Cage!”
