In this commentary, I break down Donald Trump's latest Truth Social post in which the former president infers that charging him will lead to "potential death and destruction." I describe how Trump uses a similar playbook to the one he used to incite the riots on January 6, and I condemn the Republican Party for not standing up to Trump.
As I listened this morning, rising up in my thoughts, again , was how the hell did this man ever become President. I know all the analysis, all the commentary, but here we are with a man, I believe is mentally ill, controlling this country with his insanity. Then there are the incompetent members of the House and Senate. I ask what happened to us? We are buried in a sea of explanations, but really what happened to us? How did we come to accept a man so devoid of character and integrity as a leader? I know the history, I know of people accepting other leaders such as Trump and let’s not forget DeSantis, but I can’t get past the question.
There’s a lesson for all here. Power & greed rot your soul. You end up with zero values, ethics or morals. One day, they will wake up and feel ashamed.
Trump will never feel remorse or sadness. He’s an empty shell trying to pump his own ego. When he passes, he will be known as the worst president in US history.
