I'm tired of hearing that about how we shouldn't get rid of Trump because X person is worse. No one is worse than Trump. "Bernie Bros" and Jill Stein voters make excuses by claiming Hillary would've been worse. That's all BS.
Trump is the most dangerously incompetent president in U.S. history, by FAR. This is not my opinion; this is a demonstrable fact that not even conservatives argue against. Trump's extreme lack of intelligence is notorious; his baby-like attention span that's only lengthened if he hears is name is well known, and often reported. And most dangerousl off all, Trump is the only sitting president who suffers ZERO repercussions for frequently lying, because Americans no longer care
when he's pointed out to be a liar. And I haven't even mentioned his corruption, racism, sexism, and other moral severe moral failings.
We can't have a president who is immune to ridicule like Trump; combined with his incompetence and absence of moral, he has can potentially do ANYTHING, no matter how terrible. He has seriously destabilized the Middle East by declaring Jerusalem Israel's capital; many people have died in protests, including children. The peace process between Israelis and Palestinians has been reverted back decades. Iran will now start building nuclear weapons because Trump pulled out of the Nuclear Deal; that's going to be DISASTROUS considering all the wars they back as proxies against Saudi Arabia. Trump has also fueled their anger against Israel with his embassy move.
The U.S. economy has a time bomb thanks to his tax break for the rich, paid for by the poor.
Trump bullied countries by threatening action if they didn't support his Jerusalem policy.
He's selected people like Betsy Devos and Scott Pruitt, whose accomplishments include legalizing chemicals that cause brain cancer in children, and funneling money out of public schools (who badly need it) to private schools, filling the admin's pockets. Everyone---I mean EVERYONE Trump selects for public office has been shown to be either woefully unqualified (Devos, Ben Carson, Kathleen Hartnet (chosen for an government environmental sector, who couldn't answer basic science questions), are ardent bigots like William Otis, believe in Torture in Like "Bloody" Gina Haspel, or corrupt to the core like....Mike Pence, who got into a scandal for pocketing campaign contributions and buying a house a with it.
The U.S., already hated before Trump, has become infinitely more ridiculed, after pulling out of the Paris Accord, Trump mocking world leaders like Angela Merkel, Macron, feuded with Theresa, has a bitter shouting match with the Australian Prime Minister, tried to force the Mexican president to pay for a 20 billion dollar wall, shoved the PM of Montenegro, admitted lying to Justin Trudeau....
So how could Pence be any worse? Because he's a religious nut? Because he's anti-gay? Everything about Pence is merely par for the course when it comes to Republicans.
Trump is a is a pariah whose stupidity is deadly, especially since Republicans control all the houses. He's emboldened white supremacists to go public with their hatred, and has destroyed families of immigrants with ICE as his Gestapo. He has no problem starting wars, as shown by "fire and fury" and launching hordes of Rockets into Syria just because he thinks it makes him look tough.
Get him the fck out of office.
