Who won’t acknowledge structural racism in this country.
Who says white supremacists are “very fine people.”
Who surrounds himself with ne’er-do-wells, more than a dozen of whom have been brought up on charges or been imprisoned; some of whom he has recently pardoned.
Who mocks the physically challenged.
Who disparages the military and calls service members losers.
Who considers daily security briefings a total bore and pays no attention to them.

Who trusts the Russian dictator more than he does his own intelligence community.

Who falsely takes credit for the already hot economy left to him by President Obama.
For whom the U.S. Constitution is an annoyance.
Who is a failed businessman many times over.
Who is a misogynist, who thinks he can grab a woman anytime he wants.

Who believes in a myriad of outlandish conspiracy theories, including non-existent voter fraud.

Whose response to COVID-19, from the beginning until now, has been nothing short of disgraceful.

What have we become, that we could have elected such a twisted, egomaniacal man once?
