Have you read the Ukraine phone call transcript? Of course, "Perspective" is ultimately important but, his own words seem (to me) to support No Quid Pro Quo.
I encourage you to read the transcript with an open mind.
Also, please remember, I'm not a Trump fan.
I have indeed read the transcript.
It's sketchy, at best.
But I think we both have a pretty good idea what he was doing.
I'm not just cherry picking to strengthen any pre-conceived notion.
I'm looking at the whole man and his words & actions from day 1 on Earth.
Not as a politician, but as a businessman, and more importantly (to me), as a man
I still can't believe that there are those that can't see the very things about him he himself
has admitted to.
He is a liar, a cheat, and a thief.
He knows all the best people*, knows all the best words, is really really really smart, and knows more about everything than anyone in the World.
Yet the biggest losers on the planet (according to him) have him on the ropes.
I believe History will be merciless on him.
He will have to lay claim to history no one wants.
I just hope those that supported & defended his words & actions will be able to in the future find the character to say, "I condoned the worst
How will the Religious tell their daughters that the way he speaks & treats Women is the way men should
treat women, including their very own daughters?
Or to their sons that it's only wrong if you get caught
"Anyone can grow up to one day be President" will no longer be a promise
, it will be a threat.
That being said, I don't have anything invested in loving, OR hating the man, or the job he is doing.
He's a charlatan and an abuser
of everything he touches.
It really is just that simple.
And although that may be incredibly disgusting, it's definitely not criminal.
*Have you seen the list of what he considers "The Best People" and where they are today? How could anyone trust a man that could be that far off on reading people.
Unless his idea of "The Best People" doesn't include things like truth, honesty, & character.
Hell, he thinks Kim Jong Un & Putin are "good & honorable" men.
Who could get behind a man with that kind of complete lack of judgment about people?
