Did you hear about the latest from President Trump? He’s once more, not surprisingly, passing the blame onto someone else about the ongoing soap opera-like saga of the Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election.
As if on cue for take 29 of an extremely straight to DVD B-movie, he’s Tweeted that it’s the fault of former President Barrack Obama and/or two-time presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for not dealing with it earlier. Only now, though, is he tossing any shade towards bromance buddy, Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Now even for you hardcore MAGA disciples, you’ve got to admit that it’s beginning to get old. Well, isn’t it?
Make WHO Great Again?
It doesn’t make America great again, just more weak and pathetic on the geopolitical stage. And it’s all on him and no one else.
Because him dodging this issue isn’t just an inconvenience but is quite frankly defecating on the power of the Oval Office to protect all citizens of the United States. It’s part of his responsibilities as Commander-in-Chief to face this head on.
So far, all he’s provided is obstruction of justice. There’s no nice way to say it, but why all of a sudden has he changed tactics by finally admitting that the Russians actually did manipulate the election?
Of course, he just has to include others into this fiasco. For whatever reason (no unsubstantiated rumors here), he’ll never fully put all of the weight on Putin.
Besides, Mr. Obama’s been out of office for how many years now? Yeah, out with old and in with the orange.
How much more can the former reality star hide? Because the new guy in charge can avoid taking accountability for the world’s most powerful position for only so long.
Then how about the candidate who didn’t make the final cut? Okay, sure, if Mrs. Clinton had won on that November evening, I’m quite certain her administration would’ve went in on Putin’s gang of computer hackers within her first 100 days in office.
Hey, it’s just politics as usual, right? Passing on the so-called buck.
However, comma, she didn’t win. Mr. Trump did.
Therefore, just like how President Obama inherited two wars (among other horrific things affecting the nation back in 2008) from a smiling and waving “Goodbye” Mr. George W. Bush as he departed the White House, now President Trump has to take on the Russian hack job of our post-election. It’s comes with job.
“Well, I would, because he’s in charge of the country,” Trump said in a recent interview, suggesting what Putin should do now. “Just like I consider myself to be responsible for things that happen in this country. So, certainly as the leader of a country you would have to hold him responsible, yes.”
If not now, when?
Look, bottom line is that the past is the past; thus, he needs to come to grips with the reality of today, as in the present. Like now, please?
Because if he continues down this suicidal, burning path, he may just end up as a one-term leader of the free world. And I highly doubt there’s been any sitting president who’d ever would want that.
Furthermore, he shouldn’t whine about it. It’s time for him to man up, pull up his big boy pants and show some presidential diplomacy on an international level.
True leaders don’t finger point, blaming others. No, sir, they man the eff up and handle their business, regardless of any challenges or difficulties.
