Once again a deranged madman who thought to overthrow this country’s government has shown just how many people in this country are undoubtedly legally insane and just how many in the former Republican Party had no intestinal fortitude when it came to crossing this aforementioned, deranged and disgraced person.

It’s amazing how one man with a cascade of lies can manipulate the already troubled minds of those who will believe almost anything. Even when the facts debunk his wild accusations, all “the man who wanted to be dictator” need say is “fake news.” And with no hesitation they bought it hook, line and sinker.

Don’t confuse being manipulated by an expert on showmanship and a willingness to be deceived by a charlatan with patriotism. If only people would take time in this age of technology to do their own research.

If you have your own views that don’t coincide with your leaders, then questions are in order. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen. The uninformed gathered social media information and conspiracies coming from complete hacks. If common sense is not within your thought selection, sadly you are already at a disadvantage.

Under no uncertain terms, 45 tried to overthrow the U.S. government. The proof that none of the former Republican Party wanted to get out is coming to the surface. They all knew well in advance that 45 was not playing with a full deck. But some people are just now realizing had another deranged individual like Flynn been the chairman of the joint chiefs, 45 may well have come dangerously close to success. Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for.

In closing, why does the former Republican Party always put on the theatrics when it comes to raising the debt limit? The limit being agreed upon is money used to pay the debts already accrued by 45. And what idiots in their right minds would want to sabotage this country’s economy?

Well, you can start with the head “drama queen” Ted Cruz and work from there. But as Maya Angelou once stated, “If someone shows you who they truly are, believe them.” And as Beretta used to say, “If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.”

And 45 is out of pardoning power.
