I was thrilled when the abomination that was Trumpcare was pulled. It was an evil bill that would have removed medical insurance for the 24 million people most in need of it.
And once again, Trump has employed his second-best skill (after bombast and blather): blame.
The buck never stops with this guy. Ever. Nothing is ever his fault. He's congenitally incapable of admitting he was wrong.
When he was a failed businessman who could con people out of their money, that's one thing. His businesses could go into bankruptcy, and the world continued to turn.
He's now got his finger on nuclear weapons, yet is incapable of letting the government function so we don't have to use them. He's sparked trade wars, threatened our major alliances, and gotten into bed with America's enemies.
He's gotten more power, but he hasn't gotten more wisdom. He hasn't learned that, as President, he can't just say "because I said so".
He hasn't learned that Presidents must represent the absolute best behaviour that our country has to offer, rather than the worst.
He hasn't learned that do-as-I-say, not-as-I-do is *not* a valid political philosophy.
Until we can get Trump out off office, America will look ever more a lame-duck, struggling, incapacitated beast.
We should remedy that sooner rather than later. The wolves are at the door. Do you honestly trust Trump to defend us against them?
