Proof That Donald Trump is Unfit and Corrupt Beyond Reason.

In any other era of American politics, there is no way Donald Trump would have made it through the first few Republican primaries, let alone win the nomination and become “president.” It is crystal clear that Donny is the least qualified and most inept person to ever hold public office. I mean, the man makes Dan Quayle and George W. Bush look like Rhodes Scholars.

I don’t just say this because I supposedly “hate” Trump. I don’t hate Trump, I hate what he stands for and what he does every day.

What follows is a sampling of things Trump has done that would have disqualified anyone else from even running for president. Yet, the press has pretty much ignored most of these and pretend they don’t matter. Well, they define Trump’s character, and character does matter in a “leader.”

  • On the set of “The Apprentice,” he both sexually harassed a deaf actress and repeatedly referred to her as “retarded.”
  • Stopped to speak to two 14-year-old girls and said to them, “Wow! Just think—in a couple of years, I’ll be dating you.”
  • When a woman reporter accused him of sexual assault, Trump reacted by suggesting she wasn’t “attractive enough to (assault).”
  • Started his campaign with a speech referring to Mexican immigrants as rapists and murderers. 
  • During the campaign, Trump made fun of the disability of a New York Times reporter.
  • During his campaign, Trump claimed the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency had endorsed him, when they hadn’t.
  • During the campaign, Trump claimed the economy was experiencing the slowest growth since before World War II, while growth was actually stronger than it had been in years.
  • During the campaign, Trump repeated a right-wing bullshit nugget that Iran received billions of dollars from the nuclear deal, which was a lie.
  • During the campaign, Trump lied when he claimed Hillary Clinton had laughed at 12-year-old rape victims.
  • During the campaign, Trump said “you have two treat (women) like shit.”
  • During the campaign, Trump promised to make sure the military engaged in torture and other war crimes. He also advocated for assassinating the families of terrorists.
  • During the campaign, Trump also Advocated waterboarding as punishment even if it doesn’t help gain information, because “they deserve it anyway.”
  • During the campaign, Trump advocated for shutting down all the mosques in the country.
  • During the campaign, Trump promised to deport those natural-born U.S. citizens whose parents supposedly immigrated illegally, which would violate the 14th Amendment.
  • Trump once claimed a judge’s Mexican heritage made it impossible for him to be impartial, even though he was born here.
  • Early in the campaign, Trump the draft dodger disparaged Senator John McCain’s military service, saying he preferred people “who weren’t captured.”
  • Trump once claimed that a group of his supporters who attacked a Hispanic homeless man were simply “very passionate” and “love their country.” 
  • During the campaign, Trump praised supporters who beat up protesters at his rallies and actually encouraged them to do so more often.
  • During the campaign, Trump suggested that women should be “punished” with jail for having an abortion.
  • When he was endorsed by former KKK Grand Dragon David Duke, Trump pretended not to know who he was and refused to disavow the endorsement.
  • Trump has repeatedly referred to climate change as a hoax perpetrated by “the Chinese” for competitive reasons.
  • Trump has proposed the creation of a database for tracking Muslims in the United States.
  • One of the first things Trump did upon taking office was to institute a virtual ban on Muslims from six countries, none of which had ever sent a terrorist anywhere to hurt anyone.
  • After the massacres at the Pulse nightclub in Florida. Trump said he “Appreciate{d} the congrats for being right on Islamic terrorism” 
  • As “president,” Donny suggested the U.S. reduce its massive debt by defaulting on some of them.
  • Trump once referred to an attorney who requested a break to pump breast milk as “disgusting.” 
  • Trump has thus far refused to release any verifiable financial information about himself, after he promised he would during the campaign.
  • Trump has thus far refused to sell any of his more than 500 businesses, or to even put them into a blind trust, thus creating a massive number of conflicts of interest.
  • Trump has claimed that sexual assault in the military is the direct result of “put[ting] men and women together.”
  • Trump falsely claimed he saw thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating on the day of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
  • Trump has praised FDR’s policy of Japanese internment camps and has recommended such a thing for Muslims.
  • Repeatedly refers to Senate Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas” to refer to her Native American heritage.
  • Trump has never been able to correctly answer a question about the Constitution that he has sworn an oath to uphold.

That is just the tip of the iceberg. There are actually hundreds of examples of things Trump gets away with that would have disqualified anyone else in history from the presidency. All of the above show Donald Trump to be unfit for the presidency, and yet the entire Republican Party has created something of a force field around him to protect him.

Once again, Trump is not the problem, but rather a symptom of a Republican Party that has lost its way. No sane and patriotic political party would allow this guy to serve as president without impeaching him and voting to convict and remove him. Trump is the epitome of that the Founders feared when they put impeachment into the Constitution. He is both horribly corrupt and incompetent and he is embarrassing us on the world stage.

It’s past time to end this nightmare.
