Mr. T must go! The president of the United States of America has worn out his welcome with us. He started out bad and has gotten worse.

The truth is not in him.

At this moment in American history, we are in dire need of presidential leadership. These recent challenges have only punctuated the fact that he is clueless and callous when it comes to what to do.

When the coronavirus hit, he told us to inject disinfectant and that we would be fine. Unfortunately, some knuckleheads followed him and took it.

When George Floyd was killed, his response was pathetic and pitiful. He called the protestors thugs and ignored our pleas for racial healing. The president only thinks about himself and no one else.

His latest administrative gaffes were slow acknowledgement to wearing masks and wanting to open schools too soon.

Sadly, his disdain for mask wearing goes against medical science. America now has over 3.7 million COVID-19 cases. He refuses to admit the severity of this illness as people are passing away every day.

He is trying to convince educators to open schools in the next few weeks. Some schools have already started and some students have tested positive for the coronavirus. The Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos is co-leading this notion that our children will be safe. That assertion is false and wrong.

Governors Rick DeSantis and Brian Kemp are blindly following Mr. T. They have hitched their political wagons to him. The bad news for them is that they are aboard a driverless wagon. They are rounding the bend on two wheels and will come to a screeching halt in November.

Mr. T has run a game show ruse on the American people. He wins and we lose every time.

The president makes a routine habit of firing people. The list of folks is too long to print. John Bolton, former national security adviser, and Jeff Sessions, former attorney general, were two men who felt Mr. T’s wrath.

The rule of law means nothing to the current administration. When the courts find his colleagues guilty, he uses his executive power to pardon them. How about Roger Stone? He was arrested and charged with witness tampering and making false statements.

This was associated with Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Both Mr. T and Mr. Stone denied any wrongdoing.

The president commuted the sentence of Roger Stone on July 10, days before his 40-month federal prison term was to begin. Stone is a stone loyalist to the president and therefore gets special treatment.

He is a free man, but the stain of his guilt will always remain.

Now a book penned by Mary Trump, the president’s niece, verifies what we have always said and thought about him. The title is “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.” It sold 950,000 copies last week.

The information about his overall inaptitude is staggering. We must vote in record numbers in order to cleanse the country of him.

We have lost credibility in the marketplace of ideas. Another four years of him would create darkness in the land. Let there be light and a new day. Vote him out on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

“Breaking News!” Congressman John Lewis passed away on Friday, July 17, at the age of 80 years old. He was a civil rights legend and icon. He once said, “You must be bold, brave and courageous and find a way … to get in the way.”
