Trump backers must face truth about him

Trump backers must face truth about him

Trump supporters have to wake up

 

It’s interesting that we, who didn’t vote for Trump, are castigated for criticizing him and calling us “haters.” The interesting part is that they never challenge the veracity of our criticisms.

Trump really is arrogant, bullying, climate denier, (clueless, dangerous), egomaniac, fatuous, groper, hypersensitive, ignorant, etc. Going nearly halfway through the alphabet, I have no problem finding valid descriptions of the liar-in-chief, ending with unhinged, vulgar, witless, xenophobic, yo-yo (saying one thing, then another), and zig-zag, same definition as yo-yo.

True hatred spews from Trump himself, beginning with lies about President Obama: “Birther lie; he’s a Muslim” to the now-famous escalator descent announcing his candidacy, painting nearly all Mexicans with a broad brush as rapists and drug smugglers. He mocked a disabled reporter; disrespected a Muslim Gold Star family; wants to ban Muslims from entering our country; has no respect for women; has contempt for the rule of law; is fawning over dictatorsand alienating European allies. That’s the short list.

Here’s an appalling example: in the Obama administration, Steven Chu, a Nobel Prize winning physicist, was the head of the Energy Department. Ernest Munoz, a nuclear physicist, succeeded Dr. Chu.

Now we have Rick Perry, who has no experience with the Energy Department, which he wanted to eliminate in 2011.

What sort of person (Trump) would wait “pen in hand” to wipe away health insurance for millions of people? That’s also applicable to the Republican Congress because of their hatred of President Obama. That’s genuine hatred.

Face it, Trump voters: the truth hurts, and as Jack Nicholson’s character famously said, “You can’t handle the truth.”
