I’ve Finally Stopped Worrying About A Trump Dictatorship

Sure Trump’s followers, supported by the alt-right Fox and Friends, continue to be a threat to liberal democracy, mostly because they have no idea what it means, but I no longer worry about Trump as a fascist leader.

The Donald is as much a compulsive bungler of intensions as he is an addicted liar. Everything he touches turns to indebted crap. He leaks a single tax return just to show that he made money and paid taxes one year, however, one can easily guess the red ink of the rest of the years. If it weren’t for conning poor folks, stiffing contractors and banks or cutting deals with Russian oligarchs, Mr. Bling would be in the poorhouse.

So why in the world should I or anyone else think this ridiculous, incompetent, childish moron has the will and discipline needed for organizing a dictatorship. Yes, he has the ruthless personality all right, but if given six choices he invariably picks the one that will produce the worst possible outcome for him.

Trump doesn’t smoke or drink but he is incredibly impulsive. And what worse device could ever have been invented for a compulsive personality than tweeter? He can create more self-inflicted wounds in five minutes with that communication device than most preceding president did during their entire times in office.

So, folks, sit back and enjoy watching the Donald falling all over the place to nowhere. Let’s just hope that there are enough proficient folks nearby to keep the country afloat until somehow this clown of a president leaves the world stage.
