Dear Leader said what?!?! [Opinion]

This is a quote from our Dear Leader (emphasis mine)…

You know the saddest thing, because I’m the president of the United States, I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department. I am not supposed to be involved with the FBI. I’m not supposed to be doing the kinds of things that I would love to be doing. And I’m very frustrated by it.

I wish that this was a joke or something from a satirical website such as the Onion. No, this is a real quote and anybody who truly cares about liberty and freedom should be extremely concerned. These are not the words of a man who is the leader of a country that is the paragon of freedom. These are the words of a tyrant, a dictator, or (dare I say) a fascist.

What disappoints me, even more, is how that “principled” conservatives have given Dear Leader a pass on this. We know that if something similar was said by President Obama, Crooked Hillary, or any other Congressional Democrat, they would be calling for removal or arrest.

Such as it is of American politics, pathetic.

America’s pathetic autocrat

Trump’s instincts remain chilling. Ten months in the job have not eased his yearning to wield the autocrat’s iron authority; instead, they have magnified his frustration, his sense of persecution. That’s the bad news. The good news, such as it is, is that Trump’s 10 months on the job have revealed that he lacks the focus, the persistence, the strategic sense, to become the strongman he dreams of being. We have elected an authoritarian, but an apparently incompetent one. That is the bit of luck on which we are gambling our political system.

  1. True…Trump seems to have better skill at coning the (politically uneducated) masses than he does with ‘one on one’ meetings with experienced politicians. Only those that think they can use him for their gain will have anything to do with him. That is why he surrounds himself with family or billionaires.

    1. To be honest, I suspect that conservatives, contrary to their talking points, do not have any objections to authoritarianism as long as they were the ones calling the shots. Dear Leader represents their opportunity to fundamentally transform the country to be more like Russia in that certain “undesirables” can be jailed again.
