Former F.B.I. Director Wants an End to the Trump Presidency
Cristal M Clark
The man a lot of people think caused the Trump presidency is now vowing to help end it. I don’t blame him, I mean you have to be pretty damn stupid to want to continue with more of the Trump show in 2020.
James Comey was never one to want to be thrust into the spotlight however since 2016 he has more often than not found himself squarely in it. He is actually doing quite well despite having been fired, he is actually making more money these days.
He is also not much of a fan of Donald Trump, nor is Trump of James. Yet James seems to have a calmness about him about it all. He has been watching Trump rip apart every single foundation that made this country and as with most of us, Trump and his ideals, his followers, well those are the things nightmares are made of. Sometimes, even daymares.
James Comey really doesn’t like having a Twitter account as media reports state, I doubt even Obama loves having one, but the reality is that people need and want them both to have Twitter accounts. Sometimes those of us little people need to be reminded of what real leadership is about so that we do not start to lose faith in a system that has been ravaged, pillaged, raped and torn apart by our current President.
Despite the fact that many believe James Comey all but handed Trump the Presidency, James has a huge following. I include myself in that following. The reality is that Trump had already won the Presidency, many of us watched the numbers and wrote about it in the months and weeks leading up to the election. It was an inevitable given. James didn’t do that, I lived in Florida during the election, I heard and spoke with many of his supporters. This year I went to Pennsylvania and spoke to a different breed of his supporters, James Comey did not win him the election.
James Comey is still a very highly respected man within the FBI, some agents joined the FBI because of that man. When James tweets, it is often powerful and thought provoking.
Lately it’s been reported that he wants to help ensure that Trump does not see another 4 years in the White House which has been turned into a meth trailer park since Trump’s arrival.
Yet James is unsure of what to do, feeling helpless.
Well James, welcome to the club.
Trump’s base can be divided into two very clear types of individuals, those that do not want the same A-Typical politician type in office believing that career politicians are out of touch with the working class, they do not understand us or our needs etc.
The other half are more your white supremacist types. They also however, do not want a career politician in office for the same reason the other side doesn’t yet the white supremacists want to hold back women, blacks, hispanics, and take us back to something like the 1950’s era where white men rule.
We cannot change any of those individuals, we know that Trump’s base will ignore the truth even when it’s proven and still support him.
So we need to better understand them instead of simply labeling them and then we need to work those that are running against Trump.
Those are the people who need to change so that they can effectively change the mind of the voter and gain the trust of all of Trump’s base.
The other huge advantage for anyone running against Trump has is our younger generations and those that were born in mine. Our sheer numbers outnumber Trump’s base and the majority of us do not agree with his policies, his sexism, racism and we just want a mentally ill, unbalanced and unhinged man sitting in the Oval office.
The problem is, since Trump got into office people have lost faith in our voting system, younger generations do not fully understand it, how it works, much less how important it is to actually vote.
We also do not want another old white man in the Oval office, so sorry Joe and Bernie. Many have lost faith in our political world, law enforcement, pretty much that Make America Great Again slogan, is and has been anything but that.
Our Allies no longer trust us, we don’t even trust us.
So we need to work with those that are running against Trump, we need them to gain the confidence of the voter and its more than just promising to do this or that. For anyone running against Trump, when they say they are going to change something and promise that in a debate they need to back it up with a clear plan on how they can accomplish whatever it is.
It’s all so easy to say isn’t it?
The problem is that the world, the United States are split, we are split here, people are suffering and hurting in ways not a single politician running for office currently has even bothered to address let alone open his or her eyes to actually see.
Because they do not understand it, Trump has capitalized on it, he has acknowledged it, forget what you see on CNN and hit one of his rallies, he knows the suffering, he speaks to it, he simply points the cause of it to things like race, immigration, strict EPA laws, holding the wealthy back, and the like.
He is clever, and he can speak to the suffering in the US in order to gain support. He knows the pain, he feels deeply the pain and suffering in this country because he actually hears his supporters and can articulate what they are saying back to them in the form of promises that speak to his base. He can blame a problem on something like immigration, and make a promise thus gaining support.
No one currently running is doing that. They are gaining support off of hope and only that. That is not enough because Trump can take that in a matter of seconds.
So, James Comey what can any of us do here? We want to help and change it, the reality is that we are not running for office and Trump no matter how twisted and fucked up he truly is, he knows how to hear which is different from listening and he knows how to feed into what he hears.
