Opinions on the Trump Presidency

A Pathetic Low

April 2021
1min read

What happened at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 was a pathetic low for a country that has lost its way with an utterly corrupted political class. 

Social media and a psychopathic President combined to provoke mob chaos. This is what happens when you allow narcissists to make money out of politics by becoming a reality TV President. 

I fear that Donald Trump may reflect a real America that people can’t yet understand: angry, crass, amoral, greedy, racist. Ugly.
