trump hired m. flynn because President Obama fired him

and warned him not to hire him. trump could have chosen from plenty of repup slugs lined up for the job. But no, he had to have flynn. trump was obsessed with President Obama as stated in m.cohen's book. trump is so despicable that he knowingly hired a national security risk, warned of by an outgoing PRESIDENT and intelligence agencies. trump then turned around and hired flynn to be his National Security Advisor??? His spite put our country at risk from day one of his administration ... and before too.

Despite the red flags surrounding Flynn, his role within the Trump team only continued to grow. President Obama warned Trump about hiring Flynn as National Security Advisor in November 2016, and Flynn himself disclosed to the Trump transition team that he was under federal investigation due to his previous work lobbying for Turkish interests in January 2017. Nonetheless, he was soon sworn in as a national security adviser in late January 2017. During his short tenure, he worked to push a “Middle East Marshall Plan” to build civilian nuclear power plants with Russia throughout the Middle East, which would have “required lifting sanctions on Russia.”

Four days after Trump’s inauguration, the FBI interviewed Flynn about his calls with Kislyak. After hearing a readout of Flynn’s interview with the F.B.I., then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates and another senior D.O.J. official warned White House counsel Don McGahn in January 2017 that Flynn’s denial of discussions of sanctions with Kislyak may have been misleading, and that Flynn’s comments made him “vulnerable to Russian blackmail.

1. trump's entire goal

as 'president' was/is to undo all that President Obama accomplished... we all knew that and that makes all of this doubly despicable

he never cared about the Country or any of us... and he doesn't care an ounce about any of his lowlife supporters

2. But therein lies the rub...HISTORY will remember only the idiocy of the Trump Error...not the reason

Trump thought he could destroy a legacy by acts of wanton cruelty because that is his lingua franca and only reason to draw breath. Trump lives a life devoid of actual humanity or empathy or love. EVERYTHING is transactional to him and NOTHING is human or redeeming.

By doing what he has done, Trump has drawn a bright line in history delineating himself as a petty loser and President Obama as a serious and thoughtful leader. 50 years from now, one will be a revered part of American history and one will be a punchline and cautionary tale. 100 years from now, he will be Herbert Hoover - remembered only in ignominy for his greatest failure and its lasting impact on the republic and its citizens' and their collective suffering as a result.

By attempting to elevate himself without rhyme nor reason aside from contrarianism, Trump has sealed his ignominious fate forever already...

What Trump thought he was doing was erasing Obama's legacy, what he in fact has done is cement himself as a toddler flinging birthday cake at everyone because someone else had a bigger cake at THEIR birthday party and the world is not fair unless HE gets the biggest cake and NO ONE else!!! (stampy feet and wagging little arms with pouty face on)...

Fuck Donald Trump.
Seriously. Anally probe his worthless carcass with rusted garden tools.

He is a complete loser and abject warning from history that our deeds (and especially our misdeeds) will echo on beyond our brief time on the surface of this planet. We can't take anything with us and everything we build will fall victim to entropy and fall apart at some point after we've gone. Trump's calculus has always been that it was better to be known and loathed than unknown by most but intensely loved by the few in your inner circle and family.

I will die will far, far less "assets" on my imaginary "net worth", but I wouldn't trade a lifetime of happy memories involving other people I care about and love enjoying moments rather than amassing transient items. This is nothing new - hell, Dickens wrote about it in "A Christmas Carol", the Bible teaches about the evils of worshiping wealth and possession over compassion.
