That's it. We knew we couldn't expect this guy to make it all better for us, but most of us expected a lot more help out of him than we got. The reader will find plenty of posts of disparagement, discouragement, disappointment, and distain for the (mostly) words, actions and lack thereof from President Trump. He will also find a number of posts with hope and encouragement. The former are likely more in number than the latter, as this guy was a really big failure compared to what he could have been.
John Derbyshire lays it out pretty well too, in his recent column The World of Null-T—Next Time, We Need A Cadre Who Know Their Way Around*. "Failure" is the word he uses too. There's no hope here for "yeah, wait for the midterms!" or "2024!" The hope we have is based on those of us, in the dozens of millions, who put some hope in Donald Trump but realize now that things can't be fixed by one man anyway. More realize now that the GOP is just one of 2 major squads of The Party, and The Party is not on our side, and, no, "we ain't in it."
It would have been nice for Donald Trump to at least done a few decent gestures and said a few good words for his supporters at the end. Nope, instead of pardoning some Conservatives or the Deep-State nemisae(?) Ed Snowden* and Julian Assange, he pardoned some assistant to an Israeli spy and some black dudes for I don't care what. And, nope, instead of at least saying words to minimize and fight the BS infotainment barrage about that "insurrection", and giving a little support to the Capitol Gang, he just left us with some more about HIM, HIM, HIM. Hey, man, we don't care anymore. This wasn't all about YOU! We just thought you'd be a good help for our cause.
Sayonara, suck...., oops, we're the suckers.
