I know a lot of people avoid topics of religion and politics on their blogs. I use to. I don’t anymore. When Donald Trump became “president”, it stopped being about politics and became about attitude, behavior and beliefs.
I started doing research on Donald Trump in 2010, long before he decided to run for president the first time, in 2012. I didn’t much care for what I saw, but I was intrigued. At that time he seemed almost rational, but in a very sleazy way.
The more I learned about him, the less I liked. But I never thought he ever had a chance of winning the election. In retrospect, I don’t think he did win. He rigged instead. And based on the research I’ve done on his life, this is nothing new for him. He hates to fail and will stack the deck anyway he can to always win.. his idea of winning, even if it’s not legal or ethical.
His misogynist, sexist attitude and racist behavior just made things worth and his ageism and ableism nailed it for me. He was a slimeball who just getting worse on his version of success. He didn’t care who it hurt, as long as he had money and power.
So I celebrate the fact that Donald Trump was officially impeached today. But I’m also a realist and know that not much will come from this. This impeachment is a black mark on his presidency and I doubt he cares. But history will remember him much different than he thinks and hopes.
This is how I will remember him.
