Trump’s Horrific Tweets Are a Disgrace, but What Followed Might Be Even Worse

When it comes to Donald Trump, at times, I do struggle to come up with the words that I feel accurately describe my thoughts and feelings about him and the things he says and does. No matter how long this goes on, it’s still surreal that this is all actually happening. We’re forced to deal with the fact that the United States of America is being led by someone as insecure, deranged, unhinged, and incompetent as Trump.

Saying he’s a national embarrassment doesn’t even do justice in describing Trump’s shameful behavior.  It’s nauseating to me that this lowlife bastard is representing my country.

If you haven’t heard by now, Trump went on yet another Twitter tirade, this time aimed at MSNBC’s Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski:

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that is the current “President” of the United States.

To make matters worse, his supporters are actually defending these horrific tweets — including his wife.

Straight from the “you can’t make this stuff up” files, Melania Trump issued this statement via her communications director Stephanie Grisham:

As the First Lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder.

Keep in mind, Melania is someone who’s pledged, as First Lady, to fight online bullying and to be an “advocate for women and children” who “are hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence.”

Once again — you can’t make this stuff up.

Meanwhile, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump’s tweets, saying he refuses to be “bullied” and he “fights fire with fire.”

I’m so sick and tired of Trump and his supporters treating the rest of the world like we’re a bunch of mindless idiots like they are.

I haven’t said much negative about Melania, but I’m about to — because to hell with her. If she wants to defend the man 24-years-older than she is who’s using Twitter to cyber bully women, that’s fine. But don’t sit there and have the gall to claim your big focus is on cyber bullying when you’re going to make excuses for blatant and reprehensible cyber bullying and shaming by your disgusting husband.

Cyber bullying is a serious issue that needs to be represented by serious people — not hypocrites who’ll defend a bully who often uses the Internet to viciously attack others.

As for Sanders’ defense — spare me.

You’re telling me that the “President” of the United States had to posts these tweets because — the most powerful person on the planet — felt he was being “bullied” by a couple of morning talk show hosts? If that’s the administration’s official defense, then just how pathetic and weak does that make Trump? If a “president” can feel “bullied” by a couple of people on a cable news show, that’s just pathetic.

Without a doubt, these two tweets by Trump were bad, but the fact that people are out there defending them might be even worse.

What Trump supporters also don’t seem to realize is how weak this type of behavior makes the United States. Why would anyone trust Trump? Do those who defend this type of horrific behavior really think other foreign heads of state are going to trust someone who’s proven time and time again, if you tick him off, he has no problem personally attacking them? That if you say something to him in private, he’s more than willing to try to use it against you later?

That’s exactly why James Comey said he immediately began making memos after each meeting with Trump. The former FBI director knew, right away, Trump wasn’t an honest person and would almost certainly lie about what the two had discussed if he didn’t document what took place during their encounters.

If other world leaders don’t trust ours, that puts this country at a huge risk. And I’m not even including the possibility that many feel he’s working with Vladimir Putin and is too incompetent to not share vital intelligence they don’t want the Russian government to have.

The bottom line is this, every day Donald Trump’s in office is another day this country is weaker than it’s been in decades, we’re being led by someone nobody trusts, and the United States is represented by an absolute disgrace and an embarrassment to this country.
