I am still appalled by what occurred in our very capitol yesterday. I read the news feeds and saw the news on NBC. I just can’t believe that a sitting president would have this sickening love for power to stoke the fires of insurrection and encourage his fanatical followers to launch an attack against our very fundamental institution of democracy.

This morning after the Vice President formally certified the electoral college results, Trump finally promised a “peaceful transition of power.” It won’t bring back the life of that woman shot by a Capitol Police officer. It is too little too late. What little respect I held for this man; I have none now. His narcissism knows no bounds and his arrogance knows no humility. He has for all intents and purposes become this country’s worse president. The fact he couldn’t bring himself to concede to President elect Biden over two months ago only compounds this truth.

I’m sorry to those who believed in him and thought his presidency was so awesome and great. I’m sorry he fooled you. Five years ago my wife asked me why I didn’t like Trump and I told her because he’s a demagogue who would rather incite his will upon the people like her than offer actual solutions to the nation’s problems. After yesterday’s events, even she agrees.

I'm a prospective writer with an unassuming job working as a janitor at a tribal casino near Spokane, Washington. Writing is my passion, though my family seem to think I'm wasting my time. This is fine; their expectations of me are low and they tend to leave me alone in my office writing out my stories of mystery and suspense. I have a BA in English with emphasis in professional writing from Washington State University, my website: is available for everyone to see my list of writing accomplishments and hopefully buy my first published book, or my many short stories available on Amazon.
