Why Trump Doesn’t Like Republicans

By now I think the world has figured out that Trump is not a Republican. I think that’s safe to say, especially when you consider how he’s been treating Congressional Republicans lately like a bunch of stubborn children.

The way it works is if the Republicans pass a repeal and replace Obamacare, Trump will take credit. His past history has proven this is one of his favorite tricks. If Obamacare stands, then Trump will blame Congress, the Democrats, and anyone else he can think of, and completely disown it. He’s already said as much.

But here’s the thing; look back at Trump’s history where he supported Democrats and the Clinton’s. He once said that if he ever ran for president he would do so as a Republican because their dumb enough to believe anything.

In other words, Trump’s cons starting with the Birther myth that found fertile ground with Conservatives.

I think it’s obvious Trump’s core values are different from the Republican Party’s values. The GOP stands for a lot of good things. Trump, bluntly put, doesn’t stand for anything other than making business deals for himself and his corrupt family. Think Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

The big question is how long will GOP congressmen/women allow themselves to be bullied by a guy they have nothing in common with?

As for Trump and his tantrums, we are witnesses to the destruction of every American value we were once so proud of. The Republican Party was just a stepping stone to power for Trump, and now he’s showing his disdain for the people who backed him.

As It Stands, there’s not a lot we can do about Trump’s rampages on twitter, and in person, other than to ignore him. Maybe he’ll go away.

 

7/23 Sunday musings

Wild Fires are ablaze across the USA. It seems to get worse every day.

Our wacked out president tweeted he can pardon anyone he wants, including himself. But his lawyer Jay boy says Trump isn’t even thinking about pardons because he didn’t do anything wrong.

Okay.

If that sounds confusing, welcome to the state of affairs in America. It’s the rise of fake news and the decline of truth. Facts become debatable with Trump and his minions.

Trump’s bromance with Putin is slowly revealing what we all already knew; he loves Putin (that authoritarian thing is sexy) and he’s complicit in obstruction of justice in the Russian probe of his campaign last year. Think James Comey.

I’m getting real excited by the basketball team Magic Johnson is putting together for the Lakers. I’d like to see their #2 draft choice, Alonzo Ball, make Rookie of the Year. Other acquisitions make me think this Laker team will make the playoffs for the first time in three years! (it’s been that long!) FYI: I’ve been a Laker fan since 1964.

What is the future of health care in America? The Republicans can’t even agree among themselves to repeal and replace Obamacare – their mantra for the last 7 years. Hopefully for all Americans, a bi-partisan bill will be passed and everyone will win. This uncertainty is scary.

As It Stands, thank you for stopping bye, and I sure hope you return. Your comments are always welcome.
