I was thinking about how to define the trump presidency in a word or two. It became obvious immediately that it would be difficult to contain so much … trumpiness so succinctly.
Of course, “incompetence” came immediately to mind. From his Muslim travel ban to his health care bill to illiterate tweets to appointing people like Rick Perry or Betsy DeVos specifically for their ineptitude, this administration reeks of incompetence like no presidency I can think of. bush was a moron, but he looked for competence in his administration, perhaps in compensation for his cretinism.
“Dishonesty” is certainly prominent under trump. trump was labeled by every legitimate factchecker as far and away the biggest liar in a field of 19 candidates. He has not let up. His political career was built on the birther lie. He lied about always opposing the Iraq war and continued to lie in spite of a video showing he supported the invasion. He lied about watching Muslims celebrate on 9/11 and stuck by the lie just as he has about being “bugged” by Obama. Incompetence rises again in terms of how blatant and awkward are his lies. He knows now his fluffer groupies would believe him if he told them it was noon at midnight. They not only do not care that trump is a prolific liar, they love him for it. Fools think he only lies about and to “bad” Americans.
Ignorance works as a definition. Proud, stubborn ignorance. “Nobody knew health care could be so complicated.” trump figured out North Korea after ten minutes of talking to the president of China. Frederick Douglass is a rising star and he is good friends with a dead Pavarotti. Again, what a decent person would see as a flaw, Deplorables eat up as a virtue. trump is their knight against all those snooty people who know things.
Treasonous? Narcissistic? In both cases the nation is imperiled as trump is motivated primarily by feeding his justifiably fragile ego or pleasing Putin, in no particular order. The good of the nation barely registers in the brat’s tiny mind.
Cronyism? One of trump’s biggest lies is how “Drain the Swamp” became “Swamp the Drain.” He has a cabinet full of banksters and cronies. He has more ethics waivers to allow lobbyists into his administration in four months than Obama had in eight years.
The militaristic national chauvinism and over-compensating macho bluster evoke the definition “fascist.” His attacks on a free press, combined with the lickspittle approval of his herd turn his buffoonery into something more frightening. The casual bigotry seen in the way he has pandered to the ugliest of Americans adds an even more sinister odor of nazism to the fascism that so appeals to so many Deplorables. Sissies are so desperate for a strong man to protect them that they can even find him in a flabby septuagenarian brat.
Ultimately, though, I decided I would go with “cowardly.” Nothing defines trump and trumpies better. trump’s lies come largely from him being too much of a ****** to handle the truth. His incompetence is mostly a matter of his fear of hard work. Learning is so much more difficult than hiring somebody to do the thinky stuff. His cronyism is a result of being too afraid to have around him someone who might challenge him or see through his bluster. And fascism, of course, is all about cowardice. It works best on those who see boogey men everywhere and are such wimps they will happily trade independence for the security of goose stepping in a herd. trump himself is very bold when surrounded by the pitchforks-and-torches crowd. He has plenty of courage when inciting his mob to violence. Face to face? trump never brought up the Wall to the President of Mexico. He took it like a ******* when Carley Fiorina slapped him around in the debate, and then whined at Faux Gnus about it after. He had similar reactions in dealing with Megyn Kelly or a Black pastor, submitting meekly face to face, and then blustering bravely from a distance. Yup, cowardly. No label I can think of better defines trump. Certainly none better defines his fluffer *******.
