Trump: A Wannabe Dictator

The above list shows how Trump fits the check-list of notorious Dictators… Names on Buildings, Appoint Family Members, Fox Propaganda State TV with sycophants like Sean Hannity praising him, Multi-hour speeches, Want to Lock Up Opponents, Love other Dictators, President for Life, Pathological Lying, Hold Military Parades, etc.

 

Video shows the shocking similarities between Ruthless Dictators and Trump

 

In a bizarre scene like you’d expect to see in a place like North Korea, Donald Trump spent the first part of his first cabinet meeting having his appointees take turns heaping praise on him. These sad people understand that the only way to stay in Trump’s favor is by telling him how great he is.

All the while, not a word from Republicans about this outrageous display. If Trump were a Democrat, we’d never hear the end of it. Just goes to show what hypocrites and morally bankrupt people Republicans are.

If Trump’s cabinet members had any decency or self respect, they would quit before stooping so low as to kiss this nut-case’s ass in such a degrading way.

What Trump needs is a good dose of reality. His cabinet members should have each taken turns telling him how he sucks & what an idiot he is… then quit, one at a time.

Opinion | George Washington Would Hate Trump’s July 4 Parade

The men and women who fought in the American Revolution despised pageantry and personality cults. By Mr. Breen, a professor at large at the University of Vermont, is the author of the forthcoming “The Will of the People: The Revolutionary Birth of America.”

“All Americans should be appalled by Trump’s July 4 Parade. Even during an era of extreme hyperbole, the unabashed narcissism driving the parade plans is astonishing. The focus on a single leader, on the construction of a cult of personality, would have incensed the men and women who sacrificed so much to create a new nation. As Capt. Joseph Bloomfield explained to a company of New Jersey troops preparing to fight in the Revolutionary War, the American states had “entered a new era of politics.” He warned the soldiers to be on guard against the rise of an “aspiring Demagogue, possessed of popular talents and shining qualities, a Julius Caesar, or an Oliver Cromwell” who “will lay violent hands on the government and sacrifice the liberties of his country.” Click above to read the entire article.

 

Trump’s July 4 extravaganza sets a political trap

Donald Trump’s attempt to make July Fourth great again is turning into an eloquent metaphor for the excesses and polarization of his presidency.

“Trump’s attempt to make July Fourth great again is turning into an eloquent metaphor for the excesses and polarization of his presidency. His choreography for tanks on the National Mall, war plane flyovers, his own televised address and a longer than normal red, white and blue fireworks display means that even Independence Day — for generations a rare unifying moment — will be politicized. Instead of the “Salute to America” that he has proclaimed, Trump’s critics fear he’s really plotting a salute to himself. His latest grandiose photo op appears to be a reflection of his own vanity, obsession with crowd sizes, craving for the spotlight, penchant for military hardware and his flirtations with authoritarianism.” Click above to read the entire article.

Trump Is Packing the July 4 Fireworks Because He’s Afraid of Getting Booed

President Trump is trying to take over the July 4th fireworks display in Washington. But Trump is afraid of being booed and rarely goes out in public, and is manipulating the event to pump up his support.

TRUMP AFRAID OF GETTING BOOED

“Trump ventures out in public far less than his predecessors. He rarely dines out, and when he does, it is usually at a property he owns. His speeches are almost always held in controlled spaces. He is the only president in more than a century not to throw a ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game, a venue that would expose him to a booing crowd. The Fourth of July celebration exposes Trump to the sort of crowd from which he has been traditionally insulated. The event is held in Washington, which (along with its surrounding suburbs) is heavily Democratic. It is also drawing protesters who will fly the famous Baby Trump blimp. The service chiefs have to stand next to Trump as human patriotism bodyguards. He deserves the reception he fears: loud, merciless boos.” Click above to read the entire article.
