Mr. Wonderful Is Always Bragging About Nothing Of Real Value

Everyone has an ego. We are only human after all. But most folks have a little humility, intellect, and empathy to round off the shape edges of ego, at least as one matures. And that word mature is where Donald J. Trump runs off the rails.

While some malcontents think it’s cute that, maturity wise, the Donald is still running around the 8th grade schoolyard with his infantile tweets, most thoughtful folks are not amused. Indeed, having Dennis the menace leading the most powerful nation on earth is a little disconcerting to say the least.

So the question is what has Mr. wonderful done for America since accidentally cheating his way into the White House? Well the short answer is nothing good. He has managed to make a lot of average folks lives miserable, something, from which he seems to derive great pleasure. He loves to brag about a strong economy, claiming credit for eight years of Obama’s hard work to make it so from a point of nearly irretrievable disaster.

He has helped to pass stale Republican legislation that hustles away resources from average Americans and into the bank accounts of super rich GOP donors. He is working in concert with Vladimir Putin to undercut American ideals and national strength by a thousand cuts. He is rewarding the obsolete at the expense of the future, as he works to pollute the nation and the world. Outside of that his lack of character and crude tweets demeans the office he occupies and embarrasses the world, except for the crooks that own his sorry soul. And of course he continues to brag endlessly about nothing of any real value.
