Trump Tower In Trumptown

By Jeff Simpson

The incredible hold, The Donald has on his followers is awe-inspiring.   As he say, he can shoot someone on 5th avenue and not lose a single fan(except maybe the person he shoots).

We know he mocked a disabled reporter, but we see why he did not lose any support for that, because he mocks his own supporters blind faith, and they eat it up.

"Thank you sir, May I have another" takes on a whole new meaning.  While we were worried that America was entering a new Gilded Age, the reality is we are now knee deep in the midst of the John Blutarsky age!

How are we raising children and citizens, to not question someone who brags that they can commit murder and not lose a single voter?   Could the "Strict Constitutionalists" not be so strict and  so Constitutional after all?

It is not like we are following The Donald blindly because of his strong faith, since he does not even know what his faith is.

From behind his desk on the 26th floor, Trump faced the Celtic cross at the top of the steeple of Johnston's church, located a block south on Fifth Avenue. When Johnston pointed it out to Trump, the President-elect responded by marveling at the thick glass on the windows of his office -- bulletproof panels installed after the election.
It was clear that Trump was still preoccupied with his November victory, and pleased with his performance with one constituency in particular.
"I did very, very well with evangelicals in the polls," Trump interjected in the middle of the conversation -- previously unreported comments that were described to me by both pastors.
They gently reminded Trump that neither of them was an evangelical.
"Well, what are you then?" Trump asked.
They explained they were mainline Protestants, the same Christian tradition in which Trump, a self-described Presbyterian, was raised and claims membership. Like many mainline pastors, they told the President-elect, they lead diverse congregations.
Trump nodded along, then posed another question to the two men: "But you're all Christians?"
"Yes, we're all Christians."
Yet when at his rallies, he asks for loyalty pledges, his followers are very willing to oblige.


They not only oblige they completely degrade themselves in the process!

It amazes me that, in the year 2016, people were so upset that we had an African American president that they would compromise their values, and what our Country was founded on to make the White House, white again.

But wait! There is more!

It is not bad enough that rallies filled with hundreds of white people pledge their allegiance to Hair Trump, but his whole Cabinet, in their first Cabinet meeting, completely disparaged themselves!

The point of a Cabinet meeting under normal circumstances is to catch up on what is going on in the country and work on solutions to problems.   The point of a Trump cabinet meeting is to pledge loyalty and tell him how amazing he is!  

Truth is scarier than fiction!

The person at the front of the line was, The Donald's Chief of Staff,  Wisconsin's own Reince Priebus!

Apparently Reince Priebus is doing performance art, and recreating the Robert Downey character of Julian from Less than Zero.

To be fair, addiction can be a very hard thing to overcome!

My only advice to Reince is, when he sees Steve Bannon buying Flavor-Aid in bulk, stay away!  The aftertaste is deadly!

To all of our "tea party" friends on the right, please never speak again of your Love of our country and Patriotic tendencies!
