pat·sy

  1.  a person who is easily taken advantage of, especially by being cheated or blamed for something.

This just in:  Trump supporters elected him because he would change government.  After a while, it appeared that he was incompetent but his supporters just called it a “learning curve.”  As things got worse, they tried to spin his words always starting with “What really meant was….”.  Lately, it has been, “He’s got his secret reasons for what he does.”  The implication is that he is playing Rope-a-Dope; only appearing to be incompetent so that he can get us right where he wants us.

It’s time to admit – Donald Trump is damaged.  He is hollow.  He is incompetent.  He is a liar.

Perhaps you’ve heard of Occam’s razor.

Occam’s razor (also Ockham’s razorLatinlex parsimoniae “law of parsimony“) is a problem-solving principle attributed to William of Ockham (c. 1287–1347), who was an English Franciscan friar, scholastic philosopher, and theologian. His principle can be interpreted as stating Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.

In other words, if it walks like a duck, acts like a duck and smells like a duck…it’s probably a duck.

The simplest explanation for Trump is that he actually is incompetent.

The only people that don’t know this are that 36% of all Americans that don’t want to know it.

Let me tell you who DOES know this about Trump.

The Republican Party is delightfully aware of the fact that Trump is clueless.  This includes his obliviousness to how he is being manipulated by them.

There is just no way that Trump came into office thinking “If I just allow coal mines to pollute, we will bring back jobs and become energy independent.”  The Republican Party handed him that Executive order and he just signed it blindly.

There is no way he thought, “Drilling for oil in national parks is a will be a big boost for our economy.”  The Republican Party gave him that to sign as well.

Trump has been cheering on the Republican healthcare bill.  However, it is undeniably clear that he has no idea what is in it.  The GOP praises him for his leadership as they pass a bill that is as nearly the opposite of what Trump has promised as any piece of legislation can be.  Trump seems to be unaware of this.  It’s as if they said, “We passed some legislation so now it’s time for you to clap.”

Trump threatens North Korea with an aircraft carrier that doesn’t seem to be in the same ocean that Trump says it’s in.  Then, he supports a bill for another $50 Billion in military spending.  He has no idea why but it sounds good and someone told him people would clap for him if he did it.

Trump will eventually lose his job.  He’ll either be impeached or resign because “he was being treated unfairly.”

In his wake will be a complete loss of international relationships and a polluted planet.

When it’s clear that Trump is on his way out, the Republican Party will drop him like an Atlas rocket dropping one of its boosters.

They will say, “We had no idea!” or “Thank goodness we were able to help the American people get rid of this guy.”

But alone in heir private chambers they will lift there glasses and toast “To Donald Trump, the best patsy we have ever had.”

They can do this because they just voted to take $800 billion out of Medicaid and then looked right into the camera and said, “There will be no loss of coverage.”

The people that believe this magic are the same ones that voted in Trump.

And that…..is why we can’t have nice things.

Up, up and away…
