“US President Donald Trump has deleted a Tweet citing his consensual presidency after the typo was caught by the Twittersphere.
Trump initially misquoted conservative columnist Michael Goodwin with two tweets citing Goodwin as saying:
`His is turning out to be an enormously consensual presidency. So much so that … there has never been a day that I wished Hillary Clinton were President. Not one. Indeed, as Trump`s accomplishments accumulate, the mere thought of Clinton in the W.H., doubling down on Obama`s … failed policies, washes away any doubts that America made the right choice. This was truly a change election, and the changes Trump is bringing are far-reaching and necessary.` Thank you Michael Goodwin! (Please read entire column) firstname.lastname@example.org”
On his second attempt, the President replaced `consensual` with Goodwin`s actual adjective – `consequential` — and included the columnist`s reference to Trump`s missteps.”
Michael Goodwin is spot on, Donald Trump is a consequential president, only not in the sense of an Abraham Lincoln who emancipated the slaves and saved our union, or a Franklin Roosevelt whose New Deal saved us from the Great Depression and whose decisive leadership helped defeat the Nazis in World War II.
Trump is a consequential president in the sense that his tweets mocking and provoking an unstable dictator of a nuclear county may trigger World War III. Trump`s irrational behavior may or may not destroy civilization, but his ineffectual leadership and autocratic behavior has already done irreparable harm to our democracy.
Donald Trump was also spot on when he misquoted Goodwin as saying that he was a “consensual” president. The self-described “stable genius” is a fuc*ing moron who should have been impeached already.
Trump remains in power only because the Republicans have made a Faustian bargain, they turn a blind eye to his corruption, stupidity and plain evil nature, in return for getting conservative justices on the Supreme Court and conservative judges on circuit and appeals courts. And not to mention a Tax Scam that hurts the disenfranchised and enriches the one percent.
Congressional Republicans and the Republicans in Trump`s administration are consenting to all the tomfoolery and racism emanating from the White House.
It`s incumbent upon the electorate to vote Democratic in the mid-term elections so Congress can get serious about impeaching and removing Trump from power.
