German magazine Der Spiegel tells the unvarnished truth about Donald Trump. Update!

Courtesy of Der Spiegel: 

Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it. He doesn't read. He doesn't bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

He is a man free of morals. As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump. And one of the media's tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly. He is a danger to the world.

I read all the way to the bottom of the article and I could not find a single point that I disagreed with.

Yes, Donald Trump has to go.

Now if we can only convince the Republicans of that simple fact.

Update: The front page of German newspaper.
Heaven and Hell, I think that is fairly accurate.

    I agree 100%. As an aside, that Dakota character is a stupid drunk piece of shit.

    At this point Republicans in Congress see Trump as their way to destroy the American people - their history, their values, and their future. And, for some bizarre reason, that is what the 21st century GOP wants to do.

    All of the talk about how divided the country is and how full of rancor is only partially true. It is true for Republicans who, for some reason, have decided that they hate the country they live in, the people they live with, the ideals that have guided us and the very planet we all live on. They even reject the Constitution except for their interpretation of the 2nd Amendment! The rest of us sit in shock as this nightmare continues to unfold.

    Yesterday there was a short news video in the Wash. Post about how the 2018 budget will do away with the wild horses in the West under the fiction that "conservationists" need it. Generally, "conservationists" are not "environmentalists" but hunters or, in this case more likely, rich or wannabe rich ranchers. Think the Bundy bunch.

    And then there is the death knell given two days ago to the National Endowment for the Humanities, an organization that has done nothing but enhance the life of Americans for decades now. Think Ken Burns' films, for example.

    We really need to cleanse Congress of the 21st century GOP nightmare in 2018 in addition to getting Trump as far away from the US government as possible. His stench has already permeated too much of our daily lives.

    2. Rant on, Beaglemom. Perfect. Agree 100%. Hope you (and everyone) has a relaxing and enjoyable Memorial Weekend.

    They hypocritial Republican bastards want to leave the Orange Shitgibbon in office just long enough to feed like pigs at the Federal trough.

    They are dreaming of killing health care for 23 million and they can't wait to pass a giant tax cut for the wealthy, in spite of supposedly being "conservative"

    The conflation between Dominionist Christianity and Republican dogma is at a high point thanks to Trump pandering to the bible banging lunatics who want theocracy any way they can get it.

    Even if Trump goes, we are left with Mike Pence, and militant Christian theocrat.

    Pence barely believes in democracy, and in many ways would be worse for America than Trump, because Trump is the best motivator for lazy people to get to the polls in 2018 to restore some balance of power

      And two heroic Good Samaritans are dead in Portland this a.m. Their blood on T.Rump , Sessions, Tillerson and his administrations hands. We may well be drowning in such blood before this administration is over.

      Pence (McConnell & Ryan and more) needs to go when #45 goes, sooner rather than later. Trump's 'administration' is complicit in this murder of democracy.

      We are going to have more and more killings and uprisings throughout America and then Trump will call out the national guard, police forces and the FBI to take control of American and Americans to lead as a dictator!

      He needs to be stopped, arrested, put on trial for treason, impeached and sent to jail for the rest of his miserable life!

      Be prepared America!

      What you are saying, 4:05 AM is that the REPUBLICANS (especially those in the United States Congress) are one sick, fucking, majority bunch of white men who pass themselves off as "American"!

      Damn, do I wish we had President Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leading our country!

      Trump and his family members signify a dictatorship!

    I would love to see Trump's expression after reading Der Spiegel but the problem is he doesn't read.

    1. Anonymous4:52 AM

      The cover is enought to piss him off, so tht's good. I hear he does picturebooks.

  5. Anonymous4:51 AM

    The problem is most of teh criticisms leveled here against T.Rump and they are earned criticisms, can be also be fairly leveled against his voters. Hillary was right - they ARE DEPLORABLE and he's desipicable.

    Part of #45's 'legacy' is this:

    It did not come to stay, it came to pass. It is not passing as quickly as we want it to, but it did not come to stay.

    RESIST while dodging the droppings as it hits the fan!

    Reeling From Russia Scandal, White House Cancels Trump Iowa Rally

    1. Or it's canceled because they can't risk Mr.Dementia zoning out during a rally and wandering off for all to see.

    The majority in America despise Donald Trump. He is now intentionally trying to keep things from the American people by keeping the regular press/media out of his meetings, etc.

    The Republicans in America (now the majority) and most especially in Congress need to get off that fat, racist, white asses and start the impeachment process (House/Congress) against Trump!

    He and his family members have to be banished from America! They are a 'dictatorship' vs being democratic!

    Be sure and listen to the speech Hillary Clinton gave yesterday! She was spot on!

    1. Leland8:12 AM

      That may be so, but I would be willing to bet that Sessions gets orders from Humpty Trumpty to charge her with something and try her. It's just his kind of method to silence people.

      It would be an interesting show. She would tear him a new asshole! She's a FAR better lawyer than he is!

    2. Anonymous10:40 AM

      I sincerely hope they would never do that to Mrs. Clinton! She has provided a large amount of community service throughout the years of her career in politics...for the country and Americans.

      Plus, she has served well politically for NY, Secretary of State and First Lady.

      Where on the other hand, the friggin' Donald Trump has done zero and is totally inept. He's an embarrassment to our country!

    3. After seeing that Netanyahu disaster, I think they're doing it to hide his deteriorating health. They don't want the media getting video of Trump zoning out and wandering off in a daze. I think that's why they canceled the rally too.

    Poor Trump. Angela Merkel is now be commonly referred to by the press and other world leaders as "THE leader of the free world".

    It took Trump less than 6 months to destroy our international standing.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
