Hot Air

Hot Air

Pssssssst. Is the coast clear?

I can't say for sure. It looks good, though.
It’s been a minute or two since I have poked my head above my desk to see how things are going with our new President, but from what I can see, pretty darn well. I will admit to being nervous that he was actually out to make a go of it, but it has become patently clear, that I need not have fretted at all.

Like that which the Rolaids Relief Award provides in baseball, reassurance has washed over me in a most refreshing way, because I see an end in sight, and we won’t have to wait four years for it. Russian involvement will even take a backseat to trump’s inability to simply function, without retreating to his vacation spot in Florida, something he was openly critical of when discussing the previous tenant in the White House.

What inability to function, you might ask, if you were returning from the dead? 

Fake news, for one. trump hates it, as do the rest of us, but fake news makes our leader go berserk. The difference is that fake news for our President, is the reality that the media presents to us, particularly because it is unflattering to him. Fake news for the rest of us, is that which is seemingly real, but obviously originates from a publication that makes its revenue from creating outlandish fiction. 

The inability to distinguish between the two, is fine if you are a private citizen, in which case you are a trump supporter. However, when you are allegedly the President, you can’t take that approach. People simply do not understand, myself included.

Whether you voted for trump, or not, there can be no doubt by now that his term in office will be coming to an abrupt halt in the not-to-distant-future. Collaboration with a foreign government, to influence the result of an election, is still frowned upon.

That being said, trump’s inability to keep it together at a recent press conference, demonstrates that what was only conjecture before, is in fact, reality: The man has a loose screw that he can no longer tighten back up because the threads are stripped.

trump is so removed from reality that he has already committed multiple transgressions, any one of which will remove him from office. It’s just a matter of which one will be acted on first. He either has the wrong advisors, or he has refused to listen to those in his employ. It must be that he has the wrong advisors. No one is that inept.

The man's ongoing conflict-of-interest issues between his business endeavors and his presidency, which began the minute he took the oath of office on January 20th, are the most obvious illegalities. That his offspring are so uncouth as to simply dive in and start gorging themselves at the public trough, was predictable, but still illegal.

The two boys were reared in the same manner so they came to the table, complete with bibs.

The sordid information that trump’s foundation is bogus and that he has presented himself with gifts from the same entity, highly unethical, is additional grist for the mill. If one concrete piece of evidence to remove him from office is good, then two, three or more, are better. They are present in abundance.

trump’s denigration of the judicial system, is further proof that he lives in a fantasy world of his own manufacture. Speaking for the majority of Americans, who live in the real world, I suggest he be quickly returned to this fantasy world, from which he need never be heard again. There is a process for this, one that worked efficiently enough with Nixon.

Additionally, the President’s attacks on the media, besides mirroring those of Hitler and other dictators, demonstrate that he fears the press, and why not? He who lives in a glass house, should not throw rocks, and yet, trump never lets up. He hurls salvo after salvo at anyone who questions him, cleverly ignoring the content of specific questions, to wax on eloquently about his amazing victory in the election.

An election he lost by more than three million votes.

There is a disconnect going on here, that should actually come in handy for the delusional President: It will be that much easier to disconnect himself from the White House when the time comes.

And folks, make no mistake, that time is coming. The wheels of justice turn slowly, but the vehicle is all-wheel drive, so we have nothing more to do than wait until that time arrives. That gives us two dates to mark on our calendar, one as-of-yet-unknown, the day trump exits, and the other being November of 2018, only 21 months away, when we vote the rest of the vermin out the door.

This sordid time period, when billionaires combined to run the country, will eventually be recorded as the most corrupt in history, but like trump’s presidency, these wheels turn so slowly, you cannot see the movement. 

You just know it’s there, like the earth spinning in seven different ways, simultaneously, because well, trump is spinning in seven different ways, at the same time, too.


The problem is that trump is not the earth, he is only hot air, and hot air quickly dissipates in the wind.
