Yet, Donald Trump just keeps hangin’ on!
Finally, the media reports something that most of us already knew, or at least suspected; Donald Trump is growing even more unpopular. No shit! Anyone who has followed the “career” (if you can call it that) of Donald Trump lately, probably doesn’t find this as a new revelation. The media have done us a huge disservice by not reporting this more often and sooner. I say sooner, because as far as I’m concerned, the sooner we get Donald Trump out of the White House the better for everyone. I say more often because the American people cannot hear about the president’s unpopularity often enough. Unfortunately, I have a somewhat cynical view of the American people. You need to tell them something repeatedly before it starts to sink in.
After all, despite the fact that Donald Trump won the Electoral College, but not the popular vote, says volumes. It shows that the average American person did not support Donald Trump for POTUS, but depending on an obsolete entity that no one really understands to win the presidency. Even though he won the popular vote in the deep South, and other places where largely ignorant white people live, he did not win in most other places. Donald Trump now has the dubious distinction of having even a lower approval rating than former President Gerald Ford.
It was actually surprising for me to hear that Gerald Ford has such a low approval rating because I really never thought he was a bad person, just another incompetent person doing a job that they were never suited for. As I remember it, the major reason that I highly disliked and disapproved of President Gerald Ford was that he pardoned Richard Nixon; something that I will never believe was anything other than a prearranged deal. I never respected Gerald Ford because of this deal. At the time, most people freely acknowledged that was a deal.
Of course, the same thing can be said of Donald Trump. He also is sitting in a job that he is unqualified for. What’s more, I believe that he isn’t even trying to do it correctly, both because the never really understood what he was signing up for and that he is far too arrogant to allow anyone to him give him advice about what The President of the United States is even supposed to do.
In my opinion, the news media has a duty to not sugarcoat the fact that Donald Trump is the person who has the lowest approval rating of any POTUS. By sugar-coating this piece of news, they are only not only allowing this country to be put through a very traumatic time but a time that poses a great potential danger to this country and the rest of the world. They are not doing anyone a favor by allowing this unacceptable situation of Donald Trump as POTUS to continue.
The more time that Donald Trump sits in office, the greater the risk to the entire world. Someone of his low caliber and temperament should not be allowed to hold the launch codes to nuclear weapons and the help that they will bring down all of us.
