Nurse the Hate: Trump "Time To Move Forward"?

I recognize that people have been beaten into submission regarding Trump, his utter incompetence, and the long continuing slog surrounding the Russian involvement in his campaign.  It is hard to keep the appropriate level of outrage up when each day brings another spectacular misstep that exposes our country for the rubes that we have always been.  However, I think it is a good time to draw our attention to the fact that it was an especially demoralizing weekend for the United States.  At the G20 Summit, Trump wandered around like the guy that doesn’t belong at the party.  He was radioactive.  When the big class photo was taken, everyone was cozying up to Merkel while Donald was standing all alone on the far wing.  All the other sensible countries on the planet moved ahead without the United States on climate, creating the G19.  It is clearly evident to everyone on the planet, except 35% plus/minus of our Trump supporting population, that Trump is someone to work around.  Just ignore him.

The exception to this is Putin, who can’t believe his good fortune.  See if you can follow this story line.  Every single person with access to information agrees that Russia meddled in our election, likely swinging it to Trump.  This is not opinion as Trump lost the popular vote and won the electoral college by the slimmest of margins.  Trump, more concerned about “winning” than doing the job to which he was elected, decides to ignore this foreign interference in our election process.  He is one of the last people standing that refuses to say “Russia meddled”.  Trump has his first meeting with Putin.  In that meeting he asks Putin if Russia was involved in hacking and associated behavior surrounding our election process.  Putin says “Nah”.  Trump then says “I asked and he said no.  Time to move on.”  The exact same day, super douche Donald Trump Jr. says “I met with Russians who said they had damaging information on Clinton that could help the campaign.  Oh, and I took Kushner and Manafort with me to the meeting.”  This is at odds with the Trump stance that he might not even know what Russia is much less colluded with them in the election.  Right around the same time as Douche Jr’s story hits, Donald then tweets that “Putin and I discussed forming a cyber security unit so that election hacking and many other negative things will be guarded”.  It is literally impossible to make this up.  It's like forming a drug task force with El Chapo.

It is hard to explain why the population is not currently getting torches and pitchforks gathered to storm the castle.  Our largest foreign adversary put great effort into getting Trump elected.  Trump during this election called for the Russians to hack Hillary Clinton.  We now know that his son, son in law, and campaign manager all went to a meeting with a Russian with the specific intention of getting harmful intelligence to the Clinton campaign.  We know this as they told us this is what happened.  Trump, after being elected, oddly refused to even want to consider the fact of this Russian interference.  He also oddly refused to offer any negative commentary on Putin/Russia at all and even made moves to drop sanctions.  When the FBI investigated Trump colluding with Russia, Trump fired the head of the FBI.  We know this because he told us that’s why he did it.  Russia has the goal of the United States withdrawing from global politics and weakening Europe.  This is exactly what Trump has done despite it being obviously a terrible move for the United States.  Trump finally has a public face-to-face with Putin and emerges from a meeting that theoretically should have been about not fucking with our election process but instead suggests we should partner on our cybersecurity with the guys that hacked us.  Then Trump tweets that as Putin said he had no idea who hacked us, there is no story there.  It’s time to move on.

I know we are all tired of this, but really?  We can’t get the energy up to do something about this?  Shit, I know that there’s a new Spiderman movie and NASCAR is on, but still…  We can’t all get up off the couch to try and get the train back on track?  Now, before some kook that gets all their information from Info Wars and Fox News Talk Shows hurries in here to scream about “But Obama blah blah blah!  And Clinton blah blah blah!”, just step back.  There is no president in our history that has had anything close to this lunacy associated with them like Trump.  This shit is fucking crazy.  The man gets his information from a cable news TV broadcast, which effectively makes that morning show producer more powerful than most of the presidential cabinet.  He has no idea of what he is doing.  Even when an idea floats into his peanut brain, he has no idea how to execute it.  Now we are steaming towards a North Korea showdown that has two crazy people armed with nuclear weapons facing off.  I would suggest to anyone that is even remotely concerned about their future, this might be a good time to involve yourself in “the process”.

I live in one of the most southern of southern states. A tiny blue dinghy in an angry sea of red. Helpless and hopeless. People around me do things like a starting a prayer circle to find a lost wallet. We're fucking doomed.
