It’s not exactly a secret that Donald Trump never personally accepts blame or responsibility for anything negative. When he can’t force others to make his lies and delusional conservative fan fiction come true, it’s always because someone or something is “working against him.”
He’s even frequently criticized Democrats for his repeated failures to pass some of his biggest campaign promises despite the fact that his party controls the House, Senate, and White House.
Perhaps the most absurd example of this has been his ranting about DACA, a program he personally ended back in September, that he now claims Democrats have turned their back on because they’ve refused to give him the billions he wants to build his pointless border wall by holding DREAMers hostage.
Well, Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) had some rather choice words for Trump during an interview with CNN where he said he’d gladly work with this “president” on border security when he proposes plans that aren’t “stupid” and said his recent actions are nothing more than desperation from a failing “presidency.”
“I’ll gladly work with the president when his ideas aren’t stupid and detrimental to the United States,” Gallego stated. “Unfortunately, this is what this plan [to send National Guard troops to the border] is.”
“This is a failing presidency,” he added. “Their ideas are failing. Now they’re throwing red meat at the base by essentially sending troops to the border — this is what happens when you have a failing president and a bad administration.”
And Gallego is absolutely right.
Most of Trump’s moves are nothing more than his attempt to keep pandering to his base simply because Trump views this as one big popularity contest. He loves having adoring fans and thousands of people cheering him at his rallies, so he spends most of his time “throwing red meat” at them to keep them satisfied and distracted from the fact that he’s a con man and his “presidency” is a failure and a joke.
I’ll give Trump this much credit, he’s great at telling his supporters what they want to hear. Then again, he’s also the perfect representation of the type of person many of them are.
He’s a loud, bigoted, racist hypocrite who constantly portrays himself as the victim, couldn’t care less about facts or the truth, and believes that reality is whatever he wants to be real.
I think Rep. Ruben Gallego deserves credit for saying what a lot of other Democrats, and even some Republicans, are thinking. We’re dealing with a failing “presidency” led by a man full of “stupid” ideas doing nothing more than spending most of his time in office throwing “red meat” to his base.
