The first week of 2018 has been a waterfall of disasters and mistakes for Donald Trump, and by the year’s end, he is in for a major backlash from the American people.
Donald Trump began 2018 as the most hated first-year president in recent history, with almost no accomplishments to his name, rebuked by voters in several states (including one he won by double digits), under multiple investigations by several entities, and with some of his leading campaign officials either convicted or indicted.
Then things got even worse for the orange racist.
People openly mocked him as he arrogantly tried to take credit for the lack of plane crashes in 2017, despite the fact that no Americans have died in commercial flight since 2009.
The flow of Republicans quitting, as they face the headwinds of having to run for office with Trump in office weighing them down continued into 2018, as more congressional retirements on the Republican side were announced.
As he sent dangerous and immature threats toward North Korea on his awful Twitter account, it emerged that the FBI had a source on the Trump team during the election.
Then Steve Bannon, who months ago was the white supremacist liar hand-picked by Trump to be his chief strategist in the White House, described the meetings between leading Trump campaign officials and Russian operatives as “treasonous.”
Trump gave a stupid press release slamming Bannon, whose accusations came as part of the release of “Fire & Fury,” Michael Wolff’s book about the secret inner workings of the Trump team. When Trump foolishly pushed to ban the book, it rocketed to the top of the bestseller list.
Democrats swore in a new senator from Alabama. The moment was a reminder of how the shameless Republicans ended 2017: rallying around a pedophile and giving up a senate seat they should have easily kept.
Also making a headache for Trump? Reports that members of Congress — with at least one Republican — received detailed briefings on Trump’s mental health, from a mental professional who believes he is in danger of a psychotic break.
Then two stories featuring his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, reached the headlines. First, Sessions was widely rebuked for his fascist choice to throw out guidelines stopping federal officials from pursuing marijuana prosecutions, which are seen by most Americans as a waste of time and resources.
Then, it came out that Trump tried to stop Jeff Sessions from recusing himself from the Russia investigation — obstruction of justice — and that Sessions was snooping around for compromising information on then-FBI Director James Comey right before Trump fired him.
This train wreck of a week was capped off by data proving that in his first year, President Trump has led the economy to a 6-year low for job growth.
Every day this senile fool is in office he has the potential to trigger a bigoted landmine, with his endless ignorant comments attacking ethnic and groups and women.
He is historically hated. Most presidents face tough headwinds in the first midterm election after their victories. Trump faces a unprecedented resistance with the potential to change the political map.
