Good Day World!
"It is the act of a bad man to deceive by falsehood." -Marcus Tullius Cicero
Trump's fragile ego has taken a beating this year.
The final blow to Donny's ego happened yesterday when he saw the results of the annual Gallup Poll on "Who Is The Most Admired Man in America."
The answer was...Barack Obama (10th year in a row)! I imagine Donny's face went from orange to beet red when he saw that.
Trump is set to finish 2017 with the lowest approval rating of any modern president at this stage of his first term, according to a recent CNN poll.
Trump's penchant for lying, and doubling down on lies, is no secret to anyone. We've never had a president who publicly lied everyday he was in office before.
Only 37 percent of Americans think he's doing a good job. That's worse than Ronald Reagan's last year in office, and is the lowest since Gallup started polling issues in 1952.
Since Jan. 20, when Trump was inaugurated, his disapproval rating skyrocketed, from 44.2% to 56.3% in the.RealClearPolitics average.
And the big policy win Trump is touting from his first year in office, the GOP tax plan, is extremely unpopular. Just 26% of voters approve of the tax bill, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll, released Dec. 13.
Some more reasons why Donny's ascension to the Oval Office has been a disaster so far:
* Puerto Rico was abandoned by Trump who treated it's residents like second-class Americans.
* Trump tried to get rid of Obamacare and almost succeeded when he added an amendment to his Tax Scam to get rid of the enrollment mandate.
* The rise of hate in our national dialogue and the so-called alt-right (Neo Nazis, KKK, etc.) movement was encouraged by Trump, who invigorated their cause by standing up for them during the Charlottesville, Virginia, hate rally.
* Trump has managed to alienate America from the rest of the world in one short year. It started with dropping out of the Paris Climate Control Accord signed by the rest of the world.
He followed that up by declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel...a move that brought the entire United Nations against America. After being opposed, Trump threatened to keep a list and to retaliate.
There's so many more reasons why Donny is loathed in America that I could share but you got the point. I'm sure you probably could think of some too.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
