It Should be the End of the Line
Question - Should Trump's latest tweet "ordering" American companies to leave China be the end of the line? He's certainly said and done many things that should have ended his insane clown act in the White House, but this one combined with all the ones before it, should be the final straw. Shouldn't it?
I mean think about what he said.
"Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing... your companies HOME and making your products in the USA."
He also tweeted:
"We don't need China and, frankly, would be far... better off without them."
"Our Country has lost, stupidly, Trillions of Dollars with China over many years. They have stolen our Intellectual Property at a rate of Hundreds of Billions of Dollars a year, & they want to continue. I won't let that happen!"
Set aside the rest of his statement and focus on the "hereby ordered" part. Uttering those words should be the end of Trump. A clear progression has occurred in Trump's mind and his actual uttering of those words shows without a doubt the man is delusional. Regardless of that, his saying that is a clear violation of the constitution and the entire basis of this country. Not to mention the war like atmosphere and unpractical and dangerous foreign policy and economic aspects to his "order". At the very least, a stern and unequivocal reprimand is in order. The fact that it won't happen also shows how far down the rabbit hole our country is now. For the democrats to not bring this forward, as representatives of the people, to censor or remove this asshole shows how fucked up scared and pathetic our political system has become. And how our supposed democracy is just a fraud. Trump can say something like this and we don't even fight back.
Of course, constitutionality and common sense aside, Trump's supporters not only won't be swayed, they'll love it. At least most of them, some will be a little uneasy that their war criminal in charge wants to act like a fucking king. But that won't stop their support in the end, i.e., the next election, because the other side is much, much worse.
And believe it, the democrats and their supporters want their own king, or queen.
But to me, the "hereby ordered" statement is like the icing on the cake, the cork in the barrel, or the lipstick on the pig. I'm not saying I needed it, I'm saying that should be all WE ALL need. For that to occur without repercussion other than parodies on the internet shows how much of an illusion, and delusion, our so called democracy has become.
WTF Happened to THIS!!
