Donald Trump, temperamentally unfit to be president of the United States... by gimleteye

His letter today in the Miami Herald ends:

"If Congressman Chuck Schumer; Hiliary Clinton; CNN; FOX; Hollywood celebrities and the media otherwise announce to their followers that, “Enough is enough — let’s have no more hatred and violence between fellow Americans over an election that President Trump won. Let us not descend into anarchy, from the left or right. We don’t need another Civil War. Instead, it is time we were civil to each other."


From the NY Times, August 9 2016:
Never forget what Trump said, stirring anarchy among his supporters:

“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” Mr. Trump said, as the crowd began to boo. He quickly added: “Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know.” ... Mrs. Clinton’s running mate, Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia, expressed disbelief. “Nobody who is seeking a leadership position, especially the presidency, the leadership of the country, should do anything to countenance violence, and that’s what he was saying,” Mr. Kaine said in Austin, Tex. He called Mr. Trump’s remark “a window into the soul of a person who is just temperamentally not suited to the task."

True, then. Truer, today.

All true, but here comes the real deal: every body heard the rants of Trump back then, it did not mater in the end. Which also shines a light into the soul of Millions Merkuns, that voted in spite for him. Thats scary to me!
Plus a minority party in the majority at this time, happily exploiting the situation to advance they're antisocial agenda.

It's not really Trump, it's the rotten political system that simpleton Merkuns thought to exorcise with Trump.

It goes back to the question of my European friends: Why do Merkuns not understand this??????????? Why indeed?

The system is making the self-correction. No question that this is a real test of our democratic infrastructure, but when we pass this test, we will be stronger than ever. The Constitution, the rule of law, the division of powers, the balance of power and checks and balances, our leadership role in the world ---all will come out of this as the light that it is to the world. . . .

It is not just optimism. You have not been observing closely. The rule of statutory law and the Constitution are the glue that holds this country together. No one is above the law. Watch closely each branch of government. There is a lot of movement going on but you have to be able to see it, and recognize it when you see it. Do you think people are going to sit back and let anyone destroy our democracy and our way of life? The democratic structure is in self-correction mode. Pay close attention.
