Donald Trump: The Grievance Collector

“The most revealing answer from Donald Trump’s interview with Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace came in response not to the toughest question posed by Wallace, but to the easiest.

At the conclusion of the interview, Wallace asked Trump how he will regard his years as president.

‘I think I was very unfairly treated,’ Trump responded. ‘From before I even won, I was under investigation by a bunch of thieves, crooks. It was an illegal investigation.’”

If you ask any former president how he regards his years in office, he will list his signature policies and major accomplishments. Presidents are strong ideologues, and they want to enact as many of their polices as possible.

For example, if you ask Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, how he regards his years as president, he would probably list his major accomplishments: rescuing America from the Great Recession, signing the Affordable Care Act, ordering the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden and ending the war in Iraq.

Trump is an amoral, apolitical buffoon who’s not really interested in enacting a conservative or liberal agenda, he’s only concerned with burnishing his brand and improving his popularity.

Trump is a blatant racist and his only political goals are to ban immigration, suppress the black vote, and protect symbols of white supremacy: Confederate flags and monuments.

I’m not surprised that Trump, the quintessential narcissist, said that he would remember his presidency by how badly he was mistreated. Trump collects grievances like a chipmunk collects nuts. A chipmunk with his cheeks bulging with nuts, that’s how full Trump’s mind is with grievances.

Trump has been mercilessly criticized by the press, pundits, politicians because he’s a racist, incompetent, unethical, immoral, and amoral buffoon. I hope Trump will have one more grievance to mull over: A landslide defeat of epic proportions to Joe Biden.
