Well, the cards are on the table now.
Tuesday’s report from the White House doctor may have given Donald Trump an “A” for his fine physical and mental health, but it revealed much more. Much more that Trump may come to regret.
The thing is that up to now, even though he’s denied it with gusto, Trump’s behavior has pointed to a wacky and possibly senile old man tweeting rude, sometimes unreadable messages at all hours of the day or night. His behavior has pointed to a possibly deranged old guy at the end of the bar arguing with any and all in ear shot.
His behavior has pointed to an insensitive, socially inept man confused by the challenges of the workload of being President, a man who should be excused for his missteps because it was all just too overwhelming.
But the cards – and the truth – are now on the table. No more speculation.
None of Donald Trump’s behavior can be excused any longer for any reason at all. He has finally been proven to be mentally and physically fit for the job, so whatever he does is now squarely on his shoulders – the bully behavior, the caustic tweets, the gross and crude remarks, the scowls and shouts, the threats and shoving, the arrogance and the overbearing take down of anyone who stands in his way.
This is Donald Trump and there’s not a thing wrong with him except that he’s a mean, low-minded and brutal SOB who’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants.
His minions are hereby put on alert – no more feeble excuses: “He was just kidding…” “He didn’t mean that…” “What he meant to say was…” Don’t even think about it, Kelly Ann or Sara or Steve. No more mealy-mouthing by the GOP.
For my money, chances of impeachment just soared with the good doctor’s news. When a man, any man but particularly the President of the United States, engages in the worst possible – and flagrant – behavior, that man is a scoundrel in the best/worst sense of the word. Once he’s shown his true colors, he’s no longer trustworthy, no longer credible, no longer an appropriate candidate for the highest office in the land.
And he deserves not one second of sympathy. Donald Trump might preen and applaud himself for his fine medical report. But that medical report has pulled the plug on him and there’s no going back.
Enjoy your moment, Mr. T, but we’re not buying any more fakey jake grins and “presidential” handshakes. We know who you are.
And don’t come crying to us when it all falls apart and you’re left holding your nine iron and wondering what the hell happened.
