The problem isn't Trump. Don't get me wrong, he's a sociopath. He's a liar. He's a conman. He cheated on his wife with a porn star. After he cheated on his wife he paid for the silence of the porn star so he could deceive the voting public. His company employed undocumented workers. His kids were almost charged with real estate fraud (until the DA was bribed). And as we were recently reminded, he steals money from charities. He stole money donated to help those in need and he spent it on himself. He stole money from a charity. He was fined $2M for stealing money from a charity. This, after being fined $25M for defrauding people. He defrauded people, was fined $25M, and then he was found guilty of stealing money.....................................................FROM A CHARITY. There's more. Much more. Most people with his history of behavior have served time in jail. They are criminals. As it happens, he has bought and blustered his way out of jail time. But people associated with him have not. Most people like him are society's pariahs. They lurk in the shadows waiting for their next mark. Don, he ran for President of the United States. He won. So..........the problem isn't him. He never should have made it past being a bloviating rich guy who used his Dad's fortune to enrich himself. He shouldn't have made it past being a sexual predator who likes to express his opinions on everything and everyone. The problem is The Following. The problem is with people who overlook the infidelity, the fraud, the theft, the lies, the racism, the laziness, the lack of basic decency. The problem is with people who allow themselves to be misinformed. People who don't reject the idea there are two realities. We are not, as a nation, debating the efficacy of health care policy. Or immigration policy. Or the existential threat of a changing climate. We are arguing about whether Don said what he said. What his chief of staff said that he said. What every witness called to testify in the impeachment inquiry has said about what he said and what was going on. We are failing as a nation to govern ourselves. We will continue to fail for as long as a portion of the voting public continues to delude itself. We will continue to fail until such time as candidates with Don's background are universally rejected as unfit to serve by people who currently feel having a lying, cheating, fraud who steals money from charities as prez is perfect.
