Listening to the President of the United States of America talking to Native American Veterans about their unique contribution in WWII as “Codetalkers” and in this ceremony honoring Veterans he chose to take a moment to make disparaging remarks about Senator Elizabeth Warren… WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM?? Omg… words can’t say… he’s just disgusting, I am so ashamed of his representation of the USA. Okay, but is his real motive in playing the idiot to defer attention from the real damage to all of us… for instance, when Richard Cordray Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau resigned on Friday, the agency’s Chief of Staff Leandra English, was appointed Deputy Director, a natural and wise chain of knowledge. The position requires confirmation by the Senate, however Trump immediately thwarted the due process and appointed his own lackey, Mick Mulvaney, being more interested in pleasing lobbyists for the banking industry. it is apparent time after time that Trump is only interested in dismantling our government which was developed for “of the people, by the people, for the people”, to a government favoring the wealthy and the rest of us be damned. He himself personally has taken the position it is smart to declare bankruptcy to save his money rather than pay contractors, small business owners and laborers their rightful due. Please don’t listen to his words, although hard to ignore, but watch what he is doing to our country, he is doing away with all protection for the “common man”. Too tRUMP we are all “losers” and don’t deserve protection from people like him. We need to protect ourselves before it is too late.
