Feeling bad for Trump

First I lost the House in the Midterm elections.

So, I replaced the boss of my collusion probe and replace it by a person without any integrity and blocked one of my fiercest critics – a journalist – from any further visits. Well, what would you have done in my place?

Yet, this all didn’t make me jolly still, so I decided to take a break. I went for a long weekend to Paris. Lovely, no? I have a dear sweet warm energetic – and frankly beautiful – boyfriend there. A BFF. Or so I thought.

My Paris bromance turned sour even before I landed. He was so critical of me. He still smiled but he had clearly turned from a friend into a foe. Paris was in rain – literally – all through my visit. Bummers. Even a nice but quick dinner with my old friend Vlad wouldn’t have cheered me up.

I admit that I took it out on this British lady but she called at a difficult time when she came marching in with her inconvenient phone call. She could have inquired first how I was doing and if this was a good time.

On my way back, I threatened tariffs on French wine. Serves them right. And I trashed his popularity. But this didn’t please me enough, of course.

Melania was sweet and tried to cheer me up with some firing of disloyal staff herself. But now they stole Arizona. Florida still hangs in the balance.

I started brooding. Feeling bad for too long is not healthy. Maybe I’ll fire Kelly? He’s been far too full of himself for my taste for a long time. Nah – it would make the media too happy. What’s happening is too drastic. That asks for doing something drastic. But what?

Maybe I should just quit. No, that would just embolden the fake media.

Inquiries from the witch hunt are coming. The House’ Dems threatening to go to war against me. I’ll teach them. But I don’t feel like it. What to do? Have another Fox interview? Play yet another round of golf?

I saved America so much money from wasting it on liberal hobbyhorses. I protected the wealthy who, everyone knows, are the backbone of society. I mean, when their spending power is cut, who would pay for everything? I work so hard but where is the gratefulness?

I know what I suffer from. The swamp. Washington, Paris. All these big-shots who think that they’re somebody. They’re full of crap and when push comes to shove, they just drop you like a hot potato. I need a rally. Simple people who appreciate me. Let’s have a rally. Really. I deserve it.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
