President Trump and Torture

President Trump claims that torture is effective. Then let him prove it. He should subject himself to waterboarding. 

If torture works, Trump will confess that he's been lying about a host of issues including that his was the largest Inauguration crowd; that 5 million illegal aliens voted illegally in this past election; that a crowd of Muslims celebrated 9/11 in New Jersey; that Obama wasn't born in Hawaii; that he hadn't just lambasted the intelligence community before professing his love for it; and more. 

But if, after waterboarding, Trump continues to assert these provable lies, then we'll have proof to show him and the American people that torture isn't effective. 

Bring it on, Donald.

His Inaugural Address: Trump continues to disappoint

I watched the Inauguration today of America's 45th President and was disappointed.

Who can doubt that Donald J. Trump wrote his own Inaugural Address? It was just as dark and uninspiring as his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.

We hoped he'd pivot after winning the Republican Presidential nomination. We were wrong. Some still hoped he'd pivot after winning the Presidential election and becoming President-Elect. They were wrong. A few remained hopeful he would pivot in his Acceptance Speech today after having been sworn in as President. Not a chance. Still the same harsh, bleak, dystopian rhetoric from Donald J. Trump, who apparently is able to see all that he describes so negatively from his suite in Trump Tower and his mansion at Mar-a-Lago.■
