The Golden Shower may have been an act of vengeance, by Trump, for Obama’s humiliation of him at the Presidential Roast.
I have seen the Roast. Good natured, more or less. Not really nasty, all in fun.
I’m sure Obama didn’t know, and no one but Trump’s intimates (does he have them?) knew, how thin-skinned he was, and is. Reports are that he did not take the good-natured gibes, in public, at all well. He was probably angry and humiliated, especially since his public shaming had been at the hands of a Black man. Think of how he’s always wanting to win and to be admired. Obama’s jokes fulfilled his worst nightmare.
What we are only now beginning to find out, is what a twisted, nasty, perverted racist Trump is.
Did you know, that if the golden shower did take place, a story told to Steele by three or more anonymous sources, what the real reason for it would have been, the real outrage?
When Donald Trump went to Moscow to preside over the Miss Universe finale, he made a point of securing the Presidential Suite at Moscow’s premium hotel (of course: he’s Donald Trump).
Question: who stayed before him in the Presidential Suite?
Whose bed, in Trump’s presence, was pissed on by the Russian prostitutes?—If this happened, of course.
This story makes the Russian prostitutes more and more believable; it also explains why Trump is desperate to send the story back to oblivion.
So, long before Trump seriously ran for President—against Hillary, not Barack—he appears to be obsessed with erasing Obama from the Presidency: a Black Man!
First, by despoiling the bed Barack and Michelle slept on, while in Moscow.
In Egypt, long ago, a powerful Queen/Pharaoh carried out many reforms, but Hatshepsut was erased from history, her accomplishments all reversed, by her successor, a man.
It feels like Trump is determined to do the same thing, while carrying out a wholesale coup by billionaires, et al, and fulfilling the religious right’s and the GOP’s fondest dreams. All of these goals are completely compatible with erasing Obama’s legacy as President.
It’s all Obama’s fault: those jokes.
I will never forgive Comey for making the Trump presidency possible, but he’s reported to have drawn parallels between the mobsters he put behind bars as a Prosecutor, and the current President and his gang—I mean assistants. They both value loyalty above all else. Right and wrong are non-starters. Their search is: how do we get away with this? And: Get all you can while you can.
Trump’s two most effective department heads have done the most damage: Pruitt and Zinke, but they also exemplify the real Trump program: rip off as much as you can, while you can. They can get away with it, until they can’t, which is why they’re in such a hurry. They only have a small window to grab millions of acres of public lands for pennies on the acre, so they can pump oil, gas, or dig for coal and uranium.
The officials’ cronies have THE chance, to become billionaires—at our expense.
Trump and cronies are also a bit like Attila the Hun and his court, who looted the treasures of three empires: western and eastern Rome, and the Persian Empire. The Huns paid no taxes and became momentarily wealthy from their spoils of conquest: http://www.amazon.com/Attila-Told-his-Scribes-ebook/dp/B00855M90G.
The conqueror, who overcame peaceful, non-hierarchical Catal Huyek was probably one of the first looters and plunderers, all of whom set themselves up as Kings and Emperors, while robbing the wealth of the people who created it.
It seems we are recreating the same system. Trump is a mobster with legal powers, and a monster! He and his compadres may rip off more than Attila and his Huns, even without conquering armies.
Unless we throw the bums out.
