I have tried to come to grips with
the fact that Donald Trump is our president. I knew very early on that
he was nothing but a con artist from watching an excellent movie, call
“Trump: What’s The Deal” which exposes his business practices. The
documentary film, which was commissioned in 1988 by Leonard Stern was
finished in 1991. It was the first in a series on celebrity businessmen.

It was horrifying to listen to Trump’s inaugural speech on
January 20, 2017 and his talk to the CIA as well as his Press
Secretary’s press conference on February 21, 2017 after the Woman’s
March. Trump painted a dystopian view of the United States and lied to
CIA personnel that his issues with the agency were all fabricated by the
media when his tweets say something completely different. Sean Spicer
spent most the administration’s first press conference saying that the
media distorted the number of people attending the inauguration when
pictures clearly show it was smaller in comparison to Obama’s first one
in 2009. Furthermore, what is the difference?
The Woman’s March with millions of people marching across the
country and world against Trump and what he stands for is what we all
should be paying attention to. Trump has no mandate but he acts like he
does by ignoring that he clearly lost the popular vote and that the
Russians influenced the election. By not releasing his taxes we may
never know what entanglements he has with foreign governments and how
that may compromise decision making. That should be a law before anyone
can even run for president. His so-called “trust” for his many
businesses is a joke.
I found this article by Maria Konnikova from the January / February issue of Politico click this link for the story from Politico http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/01/donald-trump-lies-liar-effect-brain-214658
that is compelling and why we need to do everything we can to counter this very
I do not believe he will ever step in or up to the
role of president. This is all about him and he can’t stand anyone
critical of his separate reality or what his Counselor to the President,
Kellyanne Conway, calls “alternative facts”. Oh, really, so now when
you don’t like the facts you make up alternate ones? I don’t believe
anything Trump says. Nothing! His lies are so pathological and very easy
for any person to clearly see.
Maria Konnikova is the author of several books with one that
supports this article. The book is called “Mastermind” and it is an
investigation into the minds, motives and methods of con artists as well
as the people who fall for their cons. Whether you voted for Trump or
not she points out some very real dangers of his personality that we all
need to take heed of.
