I used to think Trump was pretending to be insane just to lose the election.

I see now that he wasn't pretending.

But what does it say about a nation that rejects the most qualified candidate to elect someone who says and does the things Trump did? It really isn't that he tried to pretend to be qualified or worthy of the Presidency. He did everything he could to tell us he was unfit for the office.

And even now, what does it say about the people who insist that he is doing great things, is stable, is accomplishing wonderful things for the country, is deserving of respect and cooperation?

If we aren't seeking ways to remove an insane person from office we are not doing our job to protect this nation. If we aren't going out of our way to inform the uninformed we aren't protecting the nation. If we don't get out and vote in 2018 and 2020 and vote to cleanse our government, from the Presidency on through both houses of Congress, of the stench of a Trump administration and a GOP controlled Congress we are not protecting our nation.

These are not just scary times. These are sad times.

9. Clarify or delete this post, please

I'll write what you're implying: you think the CIA should assassinate the president.

That's very American of you. (ETA: sarcasm, just in case)

Enjoy your day.

2. Our nation is not as great, and not as smart as we like to imagine. I believe...

... we are in a period of decline. In many ways, I'm ashamed of our country and what it has become, and what it has devolved into being. It will take several generations before our nation is able to deservedly reclaim the mantle of being "Leader of the Free World".

4. It shows how little credibility Trump has in his statements

That the markets did not react to his break up the big banks comment.

What happens to a country that can no longer take the statements of its President seriously?

6. Exactly! Trump is a perpetual SNL skit. I think most sane people listen to him now

to hear what crazy sh** he's saying so they can attempt to be prepared. I can't imagine world leaders respecting him much than to ignore him as best they can, and others to use him as a tool, as best they can.

8. Indeed. Excellent article.

We are in a world of hurt in this country with Trump occupying the Oval Office. The longer this goes on, the worse it's going to get.

10. It shows that too many Americans respond to slogans and Celebrities

Than they think about actual policy. They are intellectually lazy.

11. He wanted to win, visibly, without actual work and by his own (lack of) rules.

Because it's all he ever knew inside his little bubble. It's all he ever had to know.

I think he literally doesn't know how to be anything more than the spoiled man-child we see, and is far too lazy even to try to learn.

But we're the Atticus Finch of Go Set a Watchman
