Never, Ever, Cross El Comandante Trump

No one can disagree with President Trump. It’s that simple. Do so, and you will face his wrath. Close to him? Then he will shame you indirectly.

Melania Trump

We have all seen the videos, photos, facial expressions, and hand-swatting of Melania Trump to the President. That in and of itself is scandalous. And when Melania wore the “I Really Don’t Care, Do You?” jacket, well, Trump had to speak out.

“I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!

Why? Optics for one. Many assumed it was in reference to him personally, and it probably was. Melania, as quiet as she has been, when she speaks, she speaks volumes, just like a couple of weeks ago when it was reported that Trump went ballistic because Melania was watching CNN on Air Force One.

The story could have been denied so that Trump starts up his “fake news” rants, instead, emails obtained by the Times show that in fact there was an email from the White House Military Office and Communications Agency that only Fox News will be played on Air Force One.

Melania’s spokesperson said that Melania “will watch any channel she wants.” Yet, people want to create this fantasy Camelot setting between the President and the First Lady who don’t even sleep in the same hotel rooms when traveling, while the President tries to gain control of the remote control literally and figuratively. Why? Besides having the emotional control of a two-year old, he is a control freak.

Ivanka Trump

Who is next on that list? None other than the tiffany diamond of his eye, Ivanka.

Ivanka came out publicly and said the border separation policy was a “low point” in the administration. Ivanka even spoke of her mother, Ivana, and how she was an immigrant from communist Czechoslovakia. Many even believe that’s how far back compromising material on Trump exists.

Ivanka also stated that the media is not the enemy of the people. Of course, Trump had other things to say at the rally in Pennsylvania.

“Fake, fake disgusting news.”

“What ever happened to the free press? What ever happened to honest reporting?” Trump asked, pointing to the media in the back of the room. “They don’t report it. They only make up stories.”

But, he wasn’t done. “Only negative stories from the fakers back there.” Tough talk, but that’s all it is, talk.

He don’t dare speak to Putin like that, and if he were tough, he would face every journalist head on with questions, not through the insulated world of tweets. And surely, if he were tough and innocent, he would speak to Robert Mueller, or at least if he were one of the two.

The sad part, take his words from the rally out and attach no name to it, and you would think it was Alex Jones from Infowars speaking, but it is actually the leader, maybe former leader of the free world, just hours after Ivanka uttered the words that the media IS NOT the enemy of the people. Why?

Again, Trump needs to have the last word and explain what others meant to say. Both Melania and Ivanka are old enough and mature enough to speak their own minds, but still, Trump does it for them, just like any other control freak would.

They asked my daughter Ivanka whether or not the media is the enemy of the people. She correctly said no. It is the FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the media, that is the enemy of the people!

This of course, comes after another intense White House Briefing between Jim Acosta and Sarah Huckabee Sanders who could not say that the media is not the enemy of the people. Instead, she focused on the White House Correspondents Dinner and the smoky eye jokes by Michelle Wolf. Wolf is a comedian, not a member of the press.

To top it off, A.G. Sulzberger, the publisher from the “failing New York Times,” yet, Trump is always calling on them for interviews, met with Trump at his request. Sulzberger asked Trump to stop using those same inflammatory words. Did he listen? Of course not. Why? Because he needs to have the last word.

It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt, or worse, and someone will.

*****

Only dictators and authoritarians feed off a crowd like if it is a wrestling match. Using cheers of hate, racism, and pure ignorance as a shot of adrenaline. At this point, you can support Trump all you want, especially his policies, but if you condone erratic, immature behavior which is not becoming of a President, then you are just as bad and vile, if not worse, than the President.

There is a difference between agreeing with policy and agreeing with hate and rhetoric. As the Spanish proverb goes: no se tapa el sol con un dedo. “You can’t cover up the sun with your finger.”

Every day this administration insults the very core of our democracy. Every day this administration lies to our face. Not just lies that are sometimes necessary for National Security reasons, but lies for no reason at all that are leaps and bounds past exaggerations and alternative facts.

El Comandante as I’m officially calling Trump since he loves nicknames, is a modern day Fidel Castro, restrained only by the Constitution that is being chipped away at minute-by-minute.

When Castro was facing trial for his attacks on the Moncada Barracks, he said “history will absolve me.” Might sound like parting words for Trump at his impeachment hearing.
