    History won't be unkind to Trump -- it will be cruel

    From Scott Gilmore

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Gilmore

    writing for Macleans:

    http://www.macleans.ca/news/world/hi...will-be-cruel/

    Life is not fair, and if you are over a certain age, and if you are paying any attention, you have probably come to the conclusion that fate and karma do not exist. The good guys don’t always win. The meek did not inherit the earth. And while justice isn’t often bought outright, it can always be rented.

    But, you cannot defy the laws of gravity. If you throw a stone up into the air, no matter how much money you have it will eventually come down. Even if you stare into the news camera and promise it is going to stay up there forever and even if 46.1 per cent of the electorate believe you, that stone is still going to fall.

    I’ve been reminding myself of this more and more frequently as I watch President Donald Trump wreak havoc across government, the United States and the world. It is too late for this story to have a happy ending. The lesser man won. The damage being done to the international order, American democracy, to Washington’s stature in the world, will never be entirely undone. One of the world’s most notorious frauds, one of the most incorrigible liars in history, became the 45th president and it’s too late to change that.

    But, that doesn’t mean there won’t be consequences. The president, his allies, and the people around him have all set in motion certain things that will lead to unavoidable repercussions.

    -snip-

    But, even if he escapes impeachment, even if Robert Mueller does not unveil a list of crimes, even if all the congressional and Justice investigations announce there is no evidence of collusion or tax evasion or obstruction of justice, Trump will still be remembered as the most ineffective and incompetent President in a century, if not in all of American history.

    After nine months in office, he has proven to all but his most loyal partisan followers that he is totally incapable of running the government, defending American interests, passing legislation or even to managing his own cabinet. At this point, there is nothing the President or his supporters can do to escape this verdict. When it is all over, his term will be described with words previously unassociated with any other modern president: ignorant, treasonous, confused, incompetent, petty, crass, ridiculous.

    History won’t just be unkind to Trump, it will be cruel. That stone is going to fall.

    I agree completely with this.

    Now, if Trump can just be stopped from destroying this country and the world first...
    It's MORE likely history won't just be unkind to Democrats, it will be cruel. They have acted like immature children throwing a temper tantrum, refusing to accept the results of the election. Their hatred of President Trump and Republicans as well as their unwillingness to work with the Republicans will go down as unprecedented in the modern era.

    3. He will be judged as a tyrant to his own country and a disruptor of international affairs. Let alone

    seen as a very stupid individual and a failed leader.
    Anyone who doesn't give the Democrats WHAT the want WHEN they want it is considered a "tyrant". And then they wonder why we're not impressed with their hyperbole and accusations.

    10. "ignorant, treasonous, confused, incompetent, petty, crass, ridiculous. "

    Ah, yes.

    I also want to see him bankrupted. All of this damage he's inflicting on Americans - it's all due to his pursuit of $$$.
    Ironically, the Soviets used to say about us that Americans' greed was their weakness. It appears to have been proven true.
    Ahhh, yes. More DU lore. Trump is President only because he is in pursuit of money. The figure that if Obama did it, and Clinton did it (used their positions to get rich) that Trump is doing so as well. They won't admit it that Democrats use their position to get rich, but they know it is true.

    13. I want him to live at least 20 more years so he can wake up many

    mornings knowing how much he is hated worldwide.
    Do you really think Trump cares if the idiots "hate" him?

    20. Actually, 45 has been extremely effective ..

    He has his SCOTUS guy in place.

    He is systematically destroying Obamacare.

    He's getting away with not helping PR.

    His warmongering and saber rattling are working.

    His white supremacist agenda is right on target.

    And his people march in lock step with his agenda
    or else.
    Lying is a way of life for liberals.

    28. For history to regard Trump as a terrible president would be too kind. He should be remembered as

    an illegitimate president.

    His victory took place in an election that was inconsistent with liberal democracy.
    Only Democrat Presidents are considered "legitimate" by the haters who think that they are entitled to rule.

    DUmmies, you won't even realize how cruel it is when future historians refer to his predecessor as a 'Black Adlai Stevenson.'

    DU being a well-established non-prophet organization, their sources probably have a similar track record. Especially since we're less than a year into Trump's first term.
    I support UNexit: Get the US out of the UN; Get the UN out of the US!

    BIG CHEETO Is Watching You!

    Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    in the pea brains of the DUmmies, liberal democracy is always getting their way or they become children and scream about stolen elections whenever their flawed candidate loses.
    The price of freedom is something the protected will never know.
