Okay, I gave the monster a chance to prove that he wasn’t as bad as I thought he would be. But he has proven to be worse than I thought. We always think that if we had lived in 1930’s Germany, we would’ve stood up to Herr Schickelgruber. (Fun fact; Alois Hitler, Adolf’s father, was born out of wedlock to Maria Schickelgruber and later took the name Hitler from the man who married his mother. So legally, the Fuhrer was actually Adolf Schickelgruber… a fact that humorists of the day used against him to get themselves exterminated.) Well, now is the time to test that resolve. There are eerie similarities between that old Fascist dictator and the incoming one. (Another fun fact; Trump’s family name was Drumpf in the old country. His grandfather, Friedrich Drumpf came to this country at the age of 16 and English-ified his name to Fred Trump. This is a fact I learned from comedian John Oliver. Proof at Snopes.com You should remember the name John Oliver. He is both informative and funny, and when Donald Drumpf changes the libel laws to include the death penalty, Oliver will be one of the first to go.)
I started this blog to promote my humorous science fiction novel, Catch a Falling Star, and to write humor in the gentle, toothless way I always admired in Red Skelton, George Goebel, and Jack Benny. Self-effacing slapstick and subtle funny is funnier than insult and bite funny that is all the rage now… at least in my opinion. But there are also things that happen that galvanize history itself, and you have to respond appropriately. You have to take a stand.
My entire life has been dedicated to educating kids. I sacrificed my youth and health… and part of my sanity to it. And now, this re-heated Twinkie with delusions of grandeur and epically bad hair has put an enemy of public education in the cabinet as the Secretary of Education.
In fact, he has chosen cabinet officials specifically for the purpose of deconstructing their departments.
His transition team represents a total contempt for the democratic duties of government to protect and empower the people who voted him in.
So, I have resolved that I will never recognize this man as my President. I am part of the resistance that stands against him. I will not address him as anything but Mr. Trump. He didn’t earn the title fairly under that cloud of Russian hacking, collaboration over oil between Trump and Putin and Exxon who now runs the State Department. He didn’t earn that title fairly when the Director of the FBI wrote a letter announcing more emails to Congress right before the election, and then later revealed there was nothing important in them. He didn’t earn that title fairly when he failed to denounce white supremacists who supported him and after the election win were emboldened to commit hate crimes while shouting his name. He will be the worst president in history, though I think he will be an heir to the throne of world’s most pernicious dictator that Herr Schickelgruber could be proud of.
I Do Not Love Thee, Mr. Trump!
