As more and more facts come out, as we can begin to see with our own eyes the degree to which our 45th president has abused his power, defiled the truth, and betrayed the American public at large, if not with traitorous acts as I believe, then with his outright lies and his ever increasing contempt for truth, justice, and the American rule of law.
In the last week alone there has been a devastating number of news reports, denials, and statements followed by retractions regarding “the OM” (“the Orange Monster”) and his pursuit of a huge Moscow real estate deal in and with Russia during his 2016 presidential campaign. Not in dispute is the fact that throughout the campaign from 2015 until its finish, the OM was at the very least encouraging negotiations—if not actively pursuing them—with Putin and the Kremlin, even as he hid these negotiations from the public at all times and frequently lied about having any deals with Russia at the time. Clearly, the OM thought it was fine to be pursuing a business deal with Putin’s Kremlin, the prime U.S. adversary, while advancing a presidential platform of improving relations with Russia. This, aside from so much else that has been shown to be improvably wrong, if not inherently evil, in Trump’s business ties to the Kremlin, shows how deeply the OM has already betrayed his country and all American voters.
Our OM seems blessed with a shamelessness that defies human experience. While most human beings would wonder quite rightly, “What will happen when I get caught in telling this lie?” when contemplating telling a shameful lie to the entire public at large, much less telling as many as 16 a day on average, our current president just barges full steam ahead with his perpetual lying. When is lie is quickly exposed, he simply makes up a new one out of thin air, and moves on, destroying all trust or potential cooperation in his destructive wake. In truth, all negotiators in Washington, both Democrat and Republican, have learned that the OM cannot be trusted in anything that he says, does, or agrees to. Is it any wonder that our nation is now experiencing the longest and most painful government shutdown in history? No one, Republican or Democrat, can trust this president to keep his word on anything. They can, however, trust in and verify that he will continue to lie at least 16 times a day.
In any relationship, lies are a betrayal. In the OM’s relationship with all Americans and the American Constitution that he swore to protect and defend against all enemies both foreign and domestic, he has sullied the relationship with the American people through his constant lying, not merely betraying his duty to the oath that he took when claiming the presidency that was handed to him by Russian operatives, but also to the country and all Americans. The mere fact that he now betrays us with at least 16 provable lies every single day, if not more, provides lawmakers with at least 16 daily examples of our president committing high crimes and misdemeanors against the people that he is supposed to serve.
Aside from the fact that he may well be proven to be a Russian agent, this lying, lawless, and criminal president must either resign or be impeached. Either way, he must be removed from office, before his betrayals turn much darker and far more.
