Donald Trump, the 45th American President, may very well go down in history, as the man who drove the final nail into the coffin what once was America. Read the blog. The Pop Machine. .

John Quincy Adams once said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” Harry Truman said, “you cannot stop the spread of an idea, by passing a law against it.” Donald Trump; “The beauty of me is that I’m very rich.”
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, your 45th American president.
I remember an old episode of Friends where Joey had a crazed fan stalking him – Erika Ford, played by Brooke Shields. Yes, I used to watch Friends, Jennifer Aniston was hot, and that studio was always cold, so fuck off.
Erika thought Joey’s soap opera character, Dr. Drake Ramore, was real, and couldn’t understand why Joey wasn’t the Pulitzer winning surgeon she knew and loved, when she met him face to face. Erika couldn’t separate fantasy, from reality. Now, it’s true, this was a character, but the condition, a well documented mental illness, known as Schizophrenia, is very real.
Whenever I hear people go on about Trumps business prowess, I think of Erika and realize that people think Donald is a successful businessman…because he played one on TV. Think about it. The guy with four bankruptcies and a list of business failures as long as a football field, was most likely elected by the mentally ill among you to run a country – and he runs it like a reality TV show.
Are you shitting your pants yet?
Thinking about America these days makes me sad and angry at the same time. It’s been about a week since president dipshit was sworn in, and already that tampon chewing, muppet has cut all federal funding to the USDA and EPA, removed evidence of climate change, restarted the keystone pipeline, ordered the construction of the Mexican border wall, and told the Mexican president to cancel his visit if he’s not going to pay for it. That’s basically like saying, if
your blind date won’t give you anal when you first meet, then they shouldn’t bother showing up.
Oh Donald, there you go again, setting that standard of excellence. Why people would ever have a problem with American foreign policy, is beyond to me.
Now, to be honest, I’ve never met Donald, but everything I’ve learned of him and his
reputation so far, tells me that I do know him. I know his kind, I’ve dealt with people like Donald before; spoiled rotten, and delusional to the Nth degree. Silver spoon fed and bailed out of every problem they’ve ever faced, so they never had to develop any sense of integrity. People like Donald sift through available information, and cherry pick what supports whatever pre-existing notion or ideology is currently rattling around their gumball machine style brain.
Don’t believe in climate change? No problem, it doesn’t exist. Get rid of all that pesky scientific evidence to the contrary, it’s just clutter and taking up space.
Think women don’t have any rights? Well then, make it a crime for them to have an abortion and put them in prison, we need to get those violent murderers off the street.
People like Donald, are poison. The amalgamation of everything that went wrong with North American culture. When there are so many ways to be good, honorable, and just, towards one another, Trump exemplifies the absolute worst levels of selfishness in all of us, not just Americans. The mentality of me first, and you, never.” He preys on fear and ignorance, and get’s you to feed off of it by example. Tells the worst among us that it’s ok to embrace racist hate. We know it’s not, but when someone’s livelihood is threatened with no money, no job, and no prospects, they need someone to blame, the ego demands it. And for many, it’s easier to blame an outsider for your problems, than to look in the mirror and admit you had a role to play in all this. So you build your walls, sever trade ties, and condemn anyone who doesn’t bow to the same closed-minded principles…all while going on about how free your country is. Dear America, do you feel free?
You chose Trump, because he’s not a politician, the lesser of a perceived evil that’s plagued your country for decades. But you forgot that it’s a person’s moral compass that dictates their actions, not their political affiliations. And for far too long, you’ve had people in power with a broken moral compass – the very people you’ve asked to help you undo the rampant corruption that has made your lives so frustratingly difficult.
America is in the crapper, a powder keg with a fuse that’s been primed for years. It’s easy to throw a blanket excuse on a problem and walk away – especially when it’s a lot more complicated than what it first appears to be, and you don’t want to spend brainpower thinking about anything more complicated then who is going to
be eliminated in the next round of a reality TV show.
The day may soon come, when Donald Trump will be remembered as the man who destroyed America. But to lay the blame for the crumbling of a country that was once considered “great”, squarely on the shoulders of one wannabe king, is actually a little bit unfair, considering how many assholes are in power in the U.S. political system. I don’t hate Donald for all of America’s problems, I hate the way he simplifies what’s happening to his country with childish rhetoric, and I hate his lack of respect for people. I hate his ego.
No, Donald didn’t create the mess that is your country, he’s just the guy holding a match. The spoiled brat, taking advantage of something to get attention any way he can get it – including spite. What kind of asshole signs into effect, the construction of a Mexican border wall, the day Mexican officials visit the U.S. in good faith?
Sometimes I think the only reason he wanted to be president, was to have the power of the executive order, so he could do whatever he wants with the stroke of a pen, without having to answer to anyone – at least in his mind.
There are consequences to every action, something Donald has yet to understand, but give it time. You see, the problem is that, people look to their leader in times of trouble, and make no mistake, these are troubling times. It seems as though everywhere you turn the shit is hitting the fan somewhere. But when people learn that their leader is only looking out for his own self interests, at the expense of others, what do you think happens then?
Now, I’m a Canadian. Born, bred, and fucking proud of it. I love my country, and I, like so many others, would do whatever was necessary to see it remain in one piece. Which is why it’s so disheartening to see my neighbors, over three million people, protesting a president that has only been in power for a few days. A president, who apparently, spends more time watching reruns of himself on TV, than he does, actually doing his job.
I know that, to America, I’m the outsider looking in and you may be wondering why I care so much about American politics. It’s not because I aspire to be an American, far from it. I care, because I’m human. If this kind of bullshit can happen in the states, our closest neighbor, then it can happen here as well. In fact, we already have a couple of Trump inspired assholes looking to get into politics on this side of the border.
Tyrants need to know that people have no sympathy or mercy for them. Bullies need to be put in their place. Protesting is a good start but what happens when it doesn’t work?
When I was a kid I had to deal with a school yard bully as I’m sure more than a few of you did. Running doesn’t help, it makes it worse. Protesting and standing your ground…well, that might help. It depends on how much of a conscience the bully has to begin with. But if you’re dealing with someone with sociopathic tendencies you may as well be spitting into the wind.
Of course, there’s always the advice my mother gave me when I was a kid. If the bully won’t stop after you’ve stood your ground and told them to stop, you pick up the first rock within arm’s reach and you lace that motherfucker upside the head.
Now before you get all preachy and start telling me that violence doesn’t solve anything let me assure you that neither does bitching and whining – although it does help to get things off your chest for your own mental well being.
If you think about it, violence is often the only thing that ever really solves anything. If the Allies didn’t fight back in the 1940’s, all of our flags would have swastikas on them. Sometimes, you have to go all in for what you believe in.
Believe it or not, I actually do commend people for trying to be nonviolent in their protests, but I don’t see it helping. In fact it actually makes me angrier when people continue to protest in the face of assholes like Trump and many other corrupt politicians, only to have those very assholes make light of the situation, and snub their nose at everyone, walking away and continuing to do whatever the fuck they want with little to no regard that you even exist – unless you’re Madonna, then you’re considered “disgusting”. Your words Donald, not mine.
I’m not telling anyone to go out and commit acts of violence, that part will probably happen on it’s own soon enough. You can only push people so far, before they push back. And it’s not every day we get to see a country explode like this – some would argue we just sit back, grab some popcorn, and watch the show. Embrace the new America under Trumps regime. Think of it.
You needing that triple-ply, yet?
You know, my wife likes to drive down to the U.S. to visit her friends from time to time. I can just imagine the slogan on the billboard as they cross the border; Welcome to Trump Cunt-ry…where we “grab ’em by the pussy.”
Be ready Donald. A tsunami is coming.
