Have you ever had a class taught by bad teacher. A real bad teacher, who is also a jerk. A teacher who is tone-deaf and walks around as if they are better than the kids they are educating. A teacher who gives out loads of homework followed by ridiculously hard tests, while providing little help and clarity. A teacher who isolates from the human beings in the classroom they spend nearly everyday with.
Do you remember the bad kids in that classroom. They were hero’s to anyone who had the misfortune of attending that teacher’s class. Those bad kids would be cheered for getting thrown out of the classroom after disrespecting that teacher. To their classmates, it was a privilege to watch those kids get under the skin of that awful teacher. Any other time an unruly behaving classmate is considered a distraction. But when you have a bad teacher, who is unwilling to understand and change their behavior, they are welcomed as saviors.
The most unruly classmate ever, just became President of the United States. Donald J. Trump might be the solution to the problem Americans have with its governing body. A loudmouth jackass is being used by the American electorate to combat Washington D.C. inaction.
Have you you ever seen the movie, “The Core”. The plot of the movie is, the Earth’s core has stopped moving. To get the core moving again, the scientist travel in a spaceship loaded with nuclear weapons and detonate those weapons. The force of those weapons provide the momentum that get the Earth’s core started again.
The spaceship is the Republican party and Donald Trump plays the role of the nukes.
Trump supporters are asking the American people, many who have spent the last 18 months being insulted by the President Elect, to allow Trump to blow up the government.
Initially Trump’s candidacy was seen as a farce. The Huffington Post early in Trump’s run for office decided that they would put him on the entertainment section. Big mistake. Trumps candidacy was propelled by antics from the news outlets like the Huffington Post.
What made his bid for office stronger is when Trumps childlike behavior upset members of his own party. However, Trumps constituency cheered how their candidate exposed the blatant hypocrisy. Republicans and Democrats acted like children when they refused to pass legislation over bogus party rules, while Americans suffered. The party establishment’s jig was up and not even television outlets could quiet the whistle Trump was blowing.
But the greatest gift Trump and his team received was from the Democratic Party. Voters routinely demonstrated an unwillingness to support Hillary Clinton. Yet the party rigged her primary win over Bernie Sanders and the voters made Democrats suffer dearly.
Democrats will now have to live with the reality that Sanders could very well be the President -Elect now, if they would not have silenced the people. Those who feel threatened by Trumps administration and policies should thank the Democrats.
Especially Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who Trump should send a cake. His approval rating might receive an early boast if he sent strippers instead.
Schultz leaked emails, described how she cheated a deserving Sanders out of the nomination, proving once and for all to voters, how corrupt both sides of the political divide behaves. Trump supporters rightfully punished both parties on election day.
Thanks to both Democrats and Republicans, the American people have a President who’s testimony and behavior is repulsive and maybe criminal. However, the criminal behavior of Capitol Hill has been far worse, for much longer.
Trumps behavior threatens the safety and well being of many Americans who he has been elected to serve. Yet beyond his divisive talking points, Trump has openly addressed the issues facing this nation. He at least has promised action.
“Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don’t have them. When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let’s say, China in a trade deal? They kill us. I beat China all the time. All the time.
When did we beat Japan at anything? They send their cars over by the millions, and what do we do? When was the last time you saw a Chevrolet in Tokyo? It doesn’t exist, folks. They beat us all the time.
When do we beat Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend, believe me. But they’re killing us economically.
The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.”
Right hear before Trump incites minorities with the racism that accompanied his campaign, he strikes a nerve with voters.
Trump address how the auto industry has used trade deals to exploit U.S. consumers and families. Motor cities such as Detroit have been abandoned with the help of the U.S. government.
Billionaires and millionaires illegally hire immigrants and do so with no penalty. He also addressed how the U.S. has been called upon to fight others country’s wars.
“We spent $2 trillion in Iraq, $2 trillion. We lost thousands of lives, thousands in Iraq. We have wounded soldiers, who I love, I love — they’re great — all over the place, thousands and thousands of wounded soldiers.
And we have nothing. We can’t even go there. We have nothing. And every time we give Iraq equipment, the first time a bullet goes off in the air, they leave it.”
The U.S. government has failed to address the role it continues to play in wars that have cost American lives.
Trump asked voters reach beyond the bigotry, misogyny and antics to see his greater point. Maybe we should not look beyond these things. Truth is, no matter how much you may despise you neighbor, your neighbor is likely to face the same challenges that you do. It’s time to recognize those differences and work together. It was good that Trump cleared the air.
Trump will never be the authoritative leader that he romantically fantasizes about. However he does present the opportunity to face our differences and problems and find real solutions.
“I watch the speeches of these people, and they say the sun will rise, the moon will set, all sorts of wonderful things will happen. And people are saying, “What’s going on? I just want a job. Just get me a job. I don’t need the rhetoric. I want a job.”
Thank god for the baddest kid in class.
