Trump Isn’t President, He’s Just the Face of the ‘Top Comment’ on Conservative Websites

Many people, myself included, have been disgusted at the behavior of Donald Trump. As I’ve said numerous times, for me, this stopped being about politics long ago. More so than any of the policies he supports, I oppose Trump being this country’s “president” because he’s a vile, awful human being and a disgrace to the dignity of the office of the president.

Most candidates, once elected, realize that, while they still are clearly partisan, they have a lot responsibility to the country as a whole. They typically understand that the office is bigger than they are and they have a duty as president to represent the country with dignity and respect.

Not Trump.

Donald Trump the “candidate” was exactly the same as Donald Trump the “president.” He’s nothing more than a shameful representation of the top comment section on your typical conservative website. He’s not trying to lead a nation, he’s trying to win a popularity contest with his supporters. He wants to get the “most likes” on whatever drivel he decides to rant about on Twitter or say during a speech.

That’s why he lies so often, then contradicts himself later. I don’t think he can keep up with what he’s saying because almost nothing he says is actually true. He’s just saying whatever he feels will get him the most praise, attention, or applause from an audience at that particular moment.

I’ll give Trump this much credit, when he realized all he really needed to do was pander to the top comments on your typical conservative website or blog, it was a stroke of genius. He knew that if he pandered to what your stereotypical “drunk uncle” might blurt out during a family get together, doing so would be more than enough to, at the very least, make him a serious contender for the GOP presidential nomination. His birther nonsense proved that much.

He knew that all he had to do was pander to the outrageous conspiracies, lies, propaganda, and other mindless blathering that often gets posted on sites like The Drudge Report, Breitbart, Hannity, The Conservative Tribune, or InfoWars and people would look at him as “an honest man who speaks the truth” — because they already believed all that bullshit!

Trump supporters finally had the candidate who lacked any and all signs of morals or ethics to lie, constantly, without any shame or hesitation, and tell them exactly what they wanted to hear, no matter how outrageous, absurd, or completely ridiculous it was.

Since then, Trump hasn’t changed. Not that I ever expected him to. He’s been a scumbag his entire life, I’m not sure why anyone thought he’d change simply because he was elected “president.”

So, no matter what anyone says, make no mistake about it, Trump’s “President” of the United States in title only. Beneath the surface, he’s simply the living embodiment of the top comment on your typical conservative website who millions of people were gullible enough to think should be this nation’s leader.
