One must be on the alert to not getting callus to the obnoxious behavior of King Trump. He is Humpty Dumpty sitting in office till the self-serving, money grubbing Republicans of the Senate & House wake up to the reality that they represent the American people, not King Trump. Our country has had a dysfunctional do nothing congress for more than 20 years, only now with the young people of America I see a new breed of representatives willing to take on the corrupt old timers in Washington. They will stand up to old party politics and give the people of America a voice.
The moral compass was not at Charlottesville when Trump said” ” “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country.”
It’s hard to imagine a less presidential statement in a time in which the country looks to its elected leader to stand up against intolerance and hatred.
Picking a ” the worst” from Donald Trump’s statement — delivered from his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club — isn’t easy. But, the emphasis of “on many sides” — Trump repeated that phrase twice — is, I think, the low ebb.
Both sides don’t scream racist and anti-Semitic things at people with whom they disagree. They don’t base a belief system on the superiority of one race over others. They don’t get into fistfights with people who don’t see things their way. They don’t create chaos and leave a trail of injured behind them. Trump is a racist, He wants to make this country great for white people. Yes rich and poor white people.
What Trump failed to do is what he has always promised to do: Speak blunt truths. The people gathered in Charlottesville this weekend are white supremacists, driven by hate and intolerance. Period. There is no “other side” doing similar things here.

With someone dead and more than two dozen people injured, this is, of course, not the time for assigning blame. This is a time to say: We stand together against what we saw in Charlottesville today. Trump didn’t do that. Not even close. Then, last but not least, is what Trump said a few paragraphs after his “on many sides”
If this was not bad enough: The president and top administration officials say U.S. laws or court rulings are forcing them to separate families that are caught trying to cross the southern border.
These claims are false. Immigrant families are being separated primarily because the Trump administration in April began to prosecute as many border-crossing offenses as possible. This “zero-tolerance policy” applies to all adults, regardless of whether they cross alone or with their children.
The Justice Department can’t prosecute children along with their parents, so the natural result of the zero-tolerance policy has been a sharp rise in family separations. Nearly 2,000 immigrant children were separated from parents during six weeks in April and May, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
The Trump administration implemented this policy by choice and could end it by choice. No law or court ruling mandates family separations. In fact, during its first 15 months, the Trump administration released nearly 100,000 immigrants who were apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border, a total that includes more than 37,500 unaccompanied minors and more than 61,000 family members.
At the news conference, Trump snapped at the press corps, called reporters “rude” for asking questions, and made baseless claims about political polling.
“Such a hostile media. It’s so sad,” he said, keeping up his years-long campaign against the people who cover him. Trump’s most contentious exchange was with Acosta. Immediately afterward, CNN said in a statement: “This President’s ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far. They are not only dangerous, they are disturbingly un-American.”
After the 2018 elections where Democrats took control of the house CNN and all the other cable news channels and broadcast networks. Media critics and Democrats said Trump’s combative streak — telling reporters to “sit down” and insulting some of them — might be part of a strategy to deflect attention from Democratic victories in the midterms.
Trump thinks he is above the law. He has no moral compass. He thinks he is a Royal King and he does not want the American people to know he is just a bully and a con man. His behavior of obstruction and not giving the information Congress requests is proof of this imperialist behavior.
While women & children are caged like animals in detention center on the border the Trump administration’s attempts to shift blame for the chaos, make no mistake: It is Donald Trump himself who is responsible. Through misguided policies, political stunts and a failure of leadership, the president has created the conditions that allowed the asylum problem at the border to explode into a crisis. The solution to our current border troubles lies in reforming the U.S. asylum system and immigration courts and helping Central America address its challenges—not in a “big beautiful” wall or shutting down the border. Yet effective action on these issues has been missing. And the president has now so poisoned the political well with his approach that there is little hope of meaningful congressional action until after the next election. Unless the administration changes course, the immigration crisis will only continue to worsen.
Our president is only concern about himself & his family, how much money he can grab while in office directly or though writing tax law the favor the rich & corporate America. That’s a man without a moral compass.
