Republican operatives are planning an intervention to help Donald Trump stay on message and stop the bleeding of his continuous outbursts showing that he is a danger to the office of the presidency, and I believe, a danger to our democracy.
In this intervention, the best thing they could really do is to train Trump to act presidential, to stop saying things that reveal who he really is. But that is the danger. They can only try, and the best they can do is to help him hide the fact that has a serious personality disorder that would be a danger to the country. If they succeed and hiding that from the American People, he might improve his chances of winning. But once (if) he wins, the true Donald Trump will try to run this country.
This would mean the end of the United States of America as we know it.
A Trump supporter on CNN said, in to response the ultimate sacrifice the Khan family made for this country, “Trump *did* make sacrifices when creating jobs. He sacrificed two marriages because he worked so hard!”
Another guest on the panel said that it was not sacrifice, “it was infidelity!”
This would be a joke with a punchline, but sadly, it is not a joke.
We all know that Donald Trump is thin skinned, and he lashes out at everyone and anyone who criticizes him. So if her were President, what will he do to protesters, or private citizens speaking out against Trump, the president. Don’t you think he would lash out at those people, too?
And once president, his new law and order presidency can easily put down anyone who speaks against him. He can hassle anyone through legal means (that is not hard to do).
So what is happening here is that we would no longer be a free country, and we would no longer have free speech. People would feel afraid to speak against the president. This is what we have in nations run by a dictator. Trump would try his best to run this country as a dictator.
In addition, I don’t believe he is capable of understanding that as president, he would have many, many limits to his power.
I have taken some heat over my criticism of Julian Assange. I do support the principle of whistle blowing and all of those that support it. Today, Assange is not acting as a whistle blower. He is acting as his own agent, clearly trying to control the results of our elections. His timing is strategically placed to give the advantage to Trump. He absolutely hates Hillary Clinton, he has made that clear. He has never even lived in this country and he is using the cover of the …support for his original noble mission to control the results of our elections. Why didn’t he release these before or after the election? Nina Khrushcheva, the granddaughter of Nikita Khrushchev, firmly believes that Putin wants Trump to win because he feels that if Trump becomes president, the country would fall apart on many levels. I think most of us agree that Putin is right. Mr. Assange will never live under a Trump presidency, so he doesn’t fully appreciate the importance of a Trump-free country. This is not whistle blowing, the is an effort to control our elections, and it will clearly help Trump win, especially if he holds on to some of the most egregious emails for an October surprise.
