Trump Attacks Sen. Warren’s Ancestry; Audience Applaud

NBC News, I have to take you seriously, only because I see no Gifs, emogi and stuff on your article. That you chose to make this about Sen. Elizabeth Warren instead of the insulting bully, Donald Trump, the most insipid person to ever occupy this nation’s highest office, says much about you.

I saw the rally and heard Trump insult Senator Warren and her mother, among others. I saw and heard his audience’s raucous approval. They who sat unperturbed as their president used debasing language about others. Trump has no respect for his office, himself or another.

Now comes your article, making light of Trump’s public diatribe as to how Senator Warren might prove her ethnicity ….to his satisfaction. Trump’s crowd found that acceptable. That doesn’t mean that you should speculate about it. You asked whether she could prove her ancestry. You ignored Trump’s history of demanding President Obama prove his citizenship. Can’t you see the pattern? Can’t you put his attack in context -his talk about Senator Warren’s DNA; demanding immigration detainees prove to his government via DNA, that the children the US government unlawfully took from detainees’s custody are their’s?

I am aware of Trump’s racist motivations that is shared by Jeff Sessions and ICE. Why would you associate yourself, even distantly with such odiousness?

On Our Attitude to Gun Violence

On Our Attitude to Gun Violence

Now that America’s children have shown us the way out of the amoral morass that we call government, and have assured us that Wayne LaPierre of the NRA is ten times smaller than the toys in the closet, the honorable action expected of adults is instinctively clear.

An educated electorate would have the compassion and courage to draw the teeth of the gun lobby and privately owned politicians, at the national and state level.

Dare I defy the logic of experience and hold my breath?

I watch our political leaders float proposals that would make a comedian weep with envy. For brevity, I’ll make just three observations.

A school is neither a fortress nor a prison. It must be safer than a home. Our children are owed the good memories of study, comraderie and play. They should not have to live in a state of terror, with a policeman present and school counselors fired.

A bar, an open air concert, a classroom -are not fish barrels or caged hunting reserves. Think of the horror. This is preventable sociopathic behavior allowed by an apathetic government.

Isolating school massacres from other community violence is misguided. Perhaps ignorant. Yes, military weapons have no place in civilized society. But have we asked ourselves, why are Americans killing themselves, their families and others in record numbers ? This level of violence is peculiarly American. We don’t have to tolerate it just because people want to get elected. We do have to find out why.

Tom Price, Kellyanne Conway and others at the Monsters’ Ball

If there were a person undeserving of public honor, Kellyanne Conway is she. Ms. Conway didn’t get dragged into anything. In fact, all of the cronies have to have known that the expensive skulking off on a private plane, billed to taxpayers, was unethical.
Despite the fact that Trump tossed out ethics rules the first weeks he assumed office.
Not only that this administration is a mere step up from mobsters, and my expectations of them could get below a New York sewage drain, I’m still hopeful that decent people would find their flaunting objectionable enough to shun the lot of them.
