Treasonous Trump: American President Surrenders To Russian Leader

July 16, 2018

One of my friends, who I have known the longest, often tells me that we have lived through some mighty impressive news stories.  A presidential resignation, attempted impeachment of another, space shuttle explosion, 9/11, and the 2000 Supreme Court decision that determined an election.  He is right, of course, we have seen a great deal in our lifetimes.

I never thought, however, I would see the day when an American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression.   I never thought or dreamed a leader could be so shameful, pathetic, and low.  Never did I think a president could be a traitor. and act in a treasonous manner.

Trump, in a stunning rebuke of the US intelligence community, declined today to endorse the US government’s assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, saying he doesn’t “see any reason why” Russia would be responsible.

Instead, Trump — standing alongside Russian President Putin — touted Putin’s vigorous denial and pivoted to complaining about the Democratic National Committee’s server and missing emails from Hillary Clinton’s personal account.

“I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today,” Trump said during a joint news conference following his summit with Putin.

It was simply stupefying for any rational person who was watching the shameful display.

Trump wants us to think that we are now going through the worst period of US and Russian relations.  That is a travesty! Many know history and read it.  Just in my lifetime the Cuban Missile Crisis occurred when the two nuclear powers went head to head.  What in hell is wrong with Trump?  What is wrong with those who think him credible?   Do they know the meaning of the word?

As this was playing out my mind slipped back to the words Trump uttered on January 20, 2017.  “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

What part of that oath did he not understand?

Or more to the point does his illegal and sham-ridden corrupt business dealings, which made it impossible for him to release his tax returns, now also prevent him now from acting as a real American while in office?

How much longer can people such as General John Kelly keep their place in this administration when it is so obvious that Trump completely dropped and ignored his oath of office.  More so how can anyone in this nation not vomit over the fact that Putin was there in person to see an American president surrender?

The onus is now on the Republican Party and their elected officials to use their words, votes, and subpoena power and get behind the need for a complete and utter denouncement of what Trump has done.  Up to now the GOP have been lap dogs, and if they are truly neutered and not able to act over this ghastly performance by Trump then history will judge them to be complicit in the undermining of America.

Never in our lives, my fellow Americans, have we been smacked so hard and dealt such a severe blow by one of our own.

TREASONOUS.

    The other time he misspoke —– When he took the oath of office he mistakenly said, “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the president of the United States and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” when clearly he meant to say, “I don’t solemnly swear to execute the office of the president of the United States…”
