Surviving Trump: Can we endure 2 more years?

After promises of a great presidency surrounded by great people, it’s been just the opposite. Have we ever seen such a group of classless, know-nothing, inexperienced, cartoonish characters? With backgrounds in fashion/modeling, real estate development, oil, neurosurgery and, of course, reality shows, this wealthy, unqualified group put into place by President Trump is dismantling the services that protect education, the environment, fair housing and so much more. It is idiotic. Where are the great professionals that were promised? Some of these best of the best, by the way, are part of a group of growing indictments, guilty pleas and imprisonment. This reality is known to anyone who reads or watches news other than Fox.

Now Trump is at odds with his own intelligence people, who have testified and contradicted his statements on Korea, Russia, Iran and ISIS. What’s with all the secret, undocumented meetings with Russia?

The bottom line simply is this job is way over Trump’s head, and there is concern for America’s future. Our debt has exploded, the ugliness of our society has erupted, and our standing in the world has diminished.

Remember these quotes? “I know more about ISIS than the generals do.” “I have a very good brain: my IQ is one of the highest.” “I love the poorly educated.” He’s called women fat, dog, slob and pig. Can we survive two more years of being governed by a fool?

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
