    Cedric Alexander holds some very impressive credentials. Among other things, he is a psychologist, therapist, sociologist, author, consultant, former TSA security director, former Rochester police chief, former police chief of DeKalb County, Georgia and current Chief Operating Officer for DeKalb County. He details how Trump repeatedly fails to "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed," as Article II of the Constitution demands of the President. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, an agency overseen by the President, declares "ethnic slurs and other verbal or physical workplace conduct based on nationality" to be illegal. So why do we allow Trump to continue spewing his nasty, hateful, bigoted, racist slurs and continue attacking Mexicans, Muslims, immigrants and duly elected Congresswomen? "Lock him up! Lock him up!"

    Trump's racist 'go back' message is un-American, demoralizing and unlawful

    Our racist, bigoted, xenophobic, white nationalist President spews lies, insults and hateful comments on a daily basis. He never thinks he says anything wrong or hateful, though. Of course not. He worships himself. In the delusion-filled land of Trumpworld, he's perfect and could never possibly be less than perfect. That's why he has never apologized for anything. Meanwhile, Trump's aides and allies have a full-time job trying to undo the damage and chaos caused by his childish, nasty, hateful outbursts. Four Washington Post writers give details:

    This headline tells us all we need to know about where the Republicans' loyalty rests:

    GOP leaders defend Trump's racist attack on lawmakers

    Democrats, meanwhile, see Trump's hateful, divisive, racist rhetoric as similar to that of four-term Alabama Governor George Wallace, a staunch segregationist who opposed the Civil Rights Act. Wallace unsuccessfully ran for President in 1964, 1968, 1972 and 1976. Trump ran for President in 2016 and won. Wallace would be proud.

    Since racist, divisive, immigrant-hating, fear-mongering white nationalist Donald Trump has been President, the number of hate groups in the United States has risen dramatically. White supremacy was the issue that divided our nation during the Civil War and Pete Buttigieg warns it could do so again.

    Peter Beinart, a professor of journalism and political science and a contributing editor of The Atlantic, wrote an insightful essay on the Republicans' hypocrisy and double standards:

    By Republican standards, almost nothing is racist
    When Democrats are accused of anti-Semitism, Republicans understand that
    coded language can be hurtful. But Trump’s racist comments get a pass.

    Robert Mueller is expected to testify before Congress tomorrow and the orange-skinned Tweeter-In-Chief was in his usual fine form this morning. With zero evidence, he again called Mueller "highly conflicted." He again lashed out at "phony Democrats." He again called the Mueller investigation a "witch hunt." He again falsely claimed Mueller found "no obstruction." He continues to insist he's "transparent" and has "nothing to hide" but does not want Mueller to testify and has spent two years trying to undermine the investigation and Mueller's credibility. Welcome to Trumpworld.

    Welcome to today's episode of Foot-In-Mouth Disease. We know our racist, insulting, immigrant-hating, white nationalist President has been attacking four Democratic Congresswomen, telling them to go back where they came from and "fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came." Of course three of the Congresswomen are American-born and all four are United States citizens. And why does Trump think they are obligated to "fix" other countries anyway? Does he tell Melania to go "fix" Slovenia? Anyway, today our racist, insulting, immigrant-hating, white nationalist President once again put his foot in his mouth – and on Twitter, for all the world to see.

    Donald J. Trump

    The “Squad” is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart. They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border...And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!

    Not everyone in the world is happy with Emperor Trump's "Make America Hate Again" and "Make America White Again" campaigns – just Trump, the Republicans and the alt-right white nationalists in the US and elsewhere.

    A top CEO calls out Trump's racism
    CNN Business, Jul 22 2019 2:44 PM

    The CEO of German industrial giant Siemens says President Donald Trump is becoming a symbol of intolerance following his attacks on four female members of Congress. "I find it depressing that the most important political office in the world is turning into the face of racism and exclusion," Joe Kaeser said on Twitter. At a rally last week in North Carolina, the US President attacked Somali-born Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar and the crowd chanted "Send her back! Send her back!" The rally followed a series of racist tweets in which Trump suggested that four minority congresswomen "go back" to their home countries. Three were born in America and all four are US citizens.

    Kaeser suggested that Trump's attacks do not reflect the America he knows. He worked as chief financial officer of Siemens Microelectronics in San Jose, California, during the 1990s. "I lived in the USA for many years and experienced freedom, tolerance and openness as never before," he wrote.

    Emperor Trump, who initially said he would not watch any of Mueller's televised testimony and then said he might watch "some" of it and then implied he will watch all of it, is obviously not the least bit worried about what Mueller will say. Otherwise, his administration would be seeking to restrict and limit Mueller's testimony in order to ensure no new incriminating details are brought to light.

    Oh, wait.......

    DOJ letter to Mueller says his testimony 'must remain within the boundaries' of his 448-page public report

    Cesar Sayoc, who idolized Donald Trump and religiously watched Fox News, pleaded guilty to 65 charges involving the sending of 16 improvised explosive devices to Democrats whom he believed to be enemies of Trump. We know Trump's supporters are blindly, rabidly, unquestioningly loyal. This paranoid psychotic took his loyalty to an extreme. Let us hope there are no others like him.
