The majority of America is both exhausted and horrified by what we’ve seen so far in Donald Trump’s short, yet failing, presidency. On a daily basis, Americans have had to look on helplessly as a reality television star – whom most of us did NOT vote for, humiliates the country and threatens to destroy all the progress that we as a nation have made.
David Letterman, for one, is tired of it. The retired talk show host vented on Monday during an interview with the Associated Press and he tore Trump a new one. Letterman did not mince his words as he criticized Trump and called for his removal from office. Letterman said:
We know there’s something wrong, but what I’m tired of is people, daily, nightly, on all the cable news shows telling us there’s something wrong.
“I just think we ought to direct our resources and our energies to doing something about it. And other people have made this point: If the guy was running Dairy Queen, he’d be gone. This guy couldn’t work at the Gap. So why do we have to be victimized by his fecklessness, his ignorance?”
Amen. Letterman also expressed sympathy for Trump’s misguided voters, understanding that the president that Trump turned out to be was probably not the POTUS they wanted and thought they were voting for, either. Letterman stated that Trump voters did indeed have some valid concerns, but they were fooled by Trump’s false promises. Trump would not be the one to solve anyone’s issues. Letterman then offered a brutal, but perfect, suggestion for getting Trump out of the White House and where he really belongs:
I wish it was Trump, but it’s not, so let’s just stop whining about what a goon he is and figure out a way to take him aside and put him in a home.”
We all know that Trump is not mentally fit to run a country. He is not even mentally fit for a job with far less complexity and responsibility. He is way out of his league, and it would be best for Trump – and all of us – if he stepped down and took care of his mental health.
