One year on.. and Trump’s fail­ures prove US elected a clown

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

And, amidst all of this news, a ter­ri­ble an­niver­sary rolled around. One of the dark­est in liv­ing mem­ory. Can it really have been a year ago last Wed­nes­day that I sat slack-jawed in Los An­ge­les and watched with ut­ter hor­ror as the re­al­ity rolled in? Amer­i­cans had only gone and elected Don­ald Trump as their 45th pres­i­dent. A year on since that aw­ful night and where is he with all the crazy prom­ises that won the elec­tion? Walls built: Zero. Mus­lim ban: Failed. Clin­tons locked up: None. Oba­macare re­peal: Non-ex­is­tent. Golf trips: End­less. In­come taxes: Still hid­den. Tax re­form: Not yet.

And it is this last point that still hangs in the air. Tax re­form is the only rea­son the sick, greedy, cyn­i­cal an­i­mals of the GOP and their bil­lion­aire back­ers have stuck with Trump this far. If, as looks in­creas­ingly likely, he fails to de­liver them the mas­sive tax cuts he promised and Robert Mueller’s Rus­sia in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues to close in, we’ll get to watch a pack of dogs turn on one of their own as never be­fore.

And then we’ll fi­nally be get­ting close to where this whole fi­asco has been head­ing since Amer­ica went col­lec­tively mad enough to elect the clown in the first place – the im­peach­ment of Don­ald J Trump.

Now that’s an an­niver­sary I’d hap­pily cel­e­brate for a long, long time.
