If only, if only, if only. We are 2 months in to this carnival barker’s presidency and it feels like 2 years. I’m tired, exhausted from his reality show BS. He is a buffoon, a fraud and a dangerous egomaniac that serves only himself. The crime in all this is that the people that support him are too embarrassed to admit that they f***ed up so they double down. “Give him time.” “He’s only been in office a few months.” “You’ll see, he will never take Meals on Wheels and my healthcare away.” “It’s all an act.” “He will move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.” “He will allow settlement expansion.” “He’ll never throw Israel under the bus like Obama did.”

What a bunch of malarkey! Hey Trump supporters – Trump is more likely a Russian agent than Obama ever was a secret Muslim out to destroy America. Wake up you clueless dolts, you’ve been had, you’re being played and we are in the most danger of imploding the American experiment as ever. Like cockroaches, when the light goes on to what you have done to our country and the world for that matter, you will go scurrying to hide under the bed. You should. I never thought I would yearn for the comparatively quaint presidency of George W. Bush and soon Trump supporters you will for Barack Hussein Obama’s.
