Donald Trump’s apology tour 

Filed under COLUMNISTS, OPINION

As truth begins to come to the attention of those who don’t want to hear it, The Donald travels out of the country to leave unpleasant facts behind.  He must apologize to Saudi Arabia for all the mean things he said about Islam and apologize to Israel for his inability to follow rules on visiting Masada.

With all of this apologizing, he’s never apologized to the women of America, to people of color, or to any of us who’ve been the subject of his rantings.

Trump’s situation
It’s easy to tell when someone is really good at what they do because an incompetent, mean-spirited, jealous person who cannot live up to the standards set before him will constantly nag and complain about what the person before him did or didn’t do. That’s the situation we’re facing today as The Donald escapes from the country for which he pledged to do so much all by himself.

President Obama set such high standards that The Donald can’t touch that and it’s eating him up.

All he can do is complain and blame President Obama for whatever it is he cannot match.  The Donald will never be able to live up to what President Obama accomplished with his hands virtually tied behind his back. Racism was alive and well during his term, and it has heated up to undo what he accomplished.

The Donald has everything in his favor to help him succeed (even Russia), but he can’t seem to put it all together to accomplish his campaign promises. Having lived as a privileged White male, he cannot begin to understand how a Black man could be so much smarter and so much more accomplished than he is.

Can’t even spell
We could tell during the campaign that The Donald thought that he was the greatest of everything because he ended almost every sentence by telling us how great he is. (Have you noticed his spelling and wrong choice of words in his tweets? I suppose he skipped English to grab young women in unauthorized places as they went to class!)

There’s a problem when you must tell someone how great you are. It usually means that someone is so insecure that he thinks if he says he’s the greatest often enough, ultimately someone will believe him. The Donald destroys that theory several times a day because what he does is often worse than what he says! Since his arrival in the White House, there’s more breaking bad news than most of us have ever seen.  Each day as we think things can’t get worse, they do!

Some could hardly wait to have The Donald in charge. They thought he’d wave a magic wand and make everything okay. Now many are frustrated because he’s taught them that color, culture nor gender is a measure of superiority! We don’t hear much from his supporters because he has not been able to deliver to them confirmation of their presumed superiority. He’s shown the world what ignorance really looks like.

He claims to have been educated at Wharton.  Apparently, even the best schools didn’t teach him good manners, good behavior or good sense! Let’s pray that his trip abroad doesn’t further tarnish our standing in the world. I’ve run into people who’re honest enough to wish we could have President Obama back in the White House!
