Trump pushed country back 150 years

The “Ego in Chief” has finally admitted defeat after his failed coup attempt to usurp the presidency resulted in deaths when his supporters were urged to storm the Capitol building.

1. Shame on Trump for treating the office as a reality game show host and firing anyone who didn’t jump up and back his ranting tweets.

2. Shame on the spineless Trump-licans who backed his every rant and tweet. Seems as if the Republican pParty sold its soul to a reality game show host.

3. Shame on the voters who voted those spineless Trump-licans into office, instead of electing a candidate who would represent their constituents and country best interests; and not the ravings entitled elitist whose only goal was to promote himself.

Hopefully the new administration can restore some of the faith the majority of the people in this country, and the rest of the free world, had in democracy. The Trump administration seemingly pushed back women’s rights, racial equality and foreign relations back 150 years and they may never be fully set on the right track for some time.
