Crazy racist americans elected crazy Donald Trump their President

Written by

Generally, a people deserve the government they have; a government reflects the character of the people that elected it.

Most observers conclude that about one third of white Americans are racists and the other two thirds do not use race as a basis in making their decisions; that is, the majority of white Americans are decent people.

The one third of white Americans who are racist went bananas when a black man, Barack Obama was elected the President of the USA. They simply could not accept that a black man could be their president. They sought ways to delegitimize his election.

One way they found to do so was to doubt that he was born in the USA. Since his father was African from Kenya and his mother was a white college student at the University of Hawaii, they argued that the eighteen year old girl went to Kenya to go have Barack born and then brought him back to Hawaii and had a hospital report that he was born there and a local newspaper report his birth.

Why would she do such a thing, logic asks? And if she wanted to do it how would she have the money to do so?

A poor eighteen year old college student goes to Africa to go have a child and bring him back, how was it financed and for what reason?

Was there public record of her trip to Kenya? Kenya was a British colony at the time Barack was born in 1961 did the British have records of her visit? Does any hospital in Kenya have records that she had her baby there?

Why such ominous behavior by the girl, Ann; what was she going to gain from doing so in 1961?

And if the idea is to have him become the President of the USA  would it make sense to have him born outside the USA since the US Constitution states that only native born Americans could become president?  It does not make sense at all; the whole birther thing was crazy!

However absurd the claim that Obama was born in Africa was yet racist Americans believed it and formed the Birther Movement to oppose the Presidency of Obama.

Mr. Donald Trump jumped unto the Birther band wagon and was all over the country demanding to see the birth certificate of Obama. Indeed, when Obama released his state of Hawaii issued birth certificate Trump and the birthers insisted on seeing the birth certificate issued by the hospital where he was born.

The man and his group simply refused to accept that Obama is an American born.  It was clear to all rational persons that Trump and his group were trying to delegitimize the presidency of Obama primarily because he was a black man.

Trump ran around the country addressing racist birther groups who refused to accept the presidency of Obama; he impressed his mostly poorly educated white working class groups with the lie that he is a billionaire; he claimed to have ten billion dollars.

The man wouldn't prove that fact by releasing his past tax information so that folks see that he paid the kind of taxes that billionaires paid to the IRS.

The man latched onto white tribalist movement that wanted non-white Americans out of the country; they chanted sending immigrants out of the country and building a wall at the southern border to prevent Latin Americans from coming into the country.

All these behaviors by Trump and racist white Americans are clearly crazy. Crazy racist white Americans elected crazy Donald Trump. A crazy people elected a crazy president.

Thus, we now see a paranoid, narcissistic president who is afraid to eat food cooked by cooks lest they poison him and prefer to eat McDonald's Cheese Burger and Fries because they were not cooked specifically for him.

A crazy, racist people elected a crazy president. What a country, these United States of America!

During the 2016 election, the alternative to racist Donald Trump was Hillary Clinton; that woman herself does not seem wholesome. She and her husband seem to have done all kinds of crooked things that it is difficult to know if they are criminals or not. There are simply too many problematic issues floating around Hillary that one is skeptical about her veracity.

During her tenure as the secretary of state Hillary and her husband had a Clinton foundation that was accused of extorting money from foreigners who wanted to do business with the United States government. It was difficult to ascertain if any of these accusations were true or not.

She sold to a Russian firm the right to mine uranium in the USA. Selling to your rival, an enemy the right to mine the source of nuclear weapons in your country and the company giving to your foundation loads of money?

Hillary's behaviors may be above board but seem fishy. The Clintons make one close ones nose to tolerate them.  Hillary was not a wholesome alternative to Donald Trump.

Let us concentrate on Trump and say that he is crazy and a crazy segment of America elected him hence a crazy people have a crazy government.

Racism is mental illness; racist Americans have mental illness, usually paranoid personality disorder, delusion disorder and narcissistic personality disorder.

Mr. Trump and his racist crowd have paranoia, delusion disorder and narcissistic personality disorder. We are now in the theatre of the absurd where a crazy man runs the government of the USA, a man those who work for him call a ten year old child and a moron!*

Mental health inheres in seeing all human beings as the same and coequal and loving and respecting all of them regardless of their race and gender. This does not mean opening the US border to all the seven billion people to come and live in it. The US can only cater to so many people. People need to improve their countries rather than try to come to the USA to find the good life in it.  That been said, all the different people in the USA must be treated equally.
