6. If We Can Look For Good From This 4 Year Disaster Of A Trump Administration - Trump Taught Us All...

the holes and loopholes in our Government and Constitution - as he's tested, exploited and used all of them to run his corrupt operation. He's still has 28 or so days left and who knows how many more he'll employ and exploit before he actually leaves office. I don't think he's done just yet and I believe he'll use every opportunity to take advantage until the minute, second of the day that he's removed from office.

I don't think our founding fathers that wrote the Constitution ever intended that any person that would be president would ever be able to actually - in broad daylight in front of all of us to see - bend and break laws to pad his pocketbook and destroy our government like this guy has done.

He employed the worst of the worst people to help his corruption along and promised them - either openly or covertly - that he would protect them in the end if they protected him during his long string of corruption.

You can't tell me that this guy has dementia; is clueless and doesn't ever have a plan. In my opinion - this was a well oiled operation from the start and run like a crime syndicate. This was the mafia, the cosa nostra rolled up in one - from the start and it was well executed over the span of his run in office. He set out to do this right from when he came down that elevator in Trump Tower to declare his candidacy.

In many ways - we're all responsible for what we've been through these last 4 years - because we all knew from the start what kind of person this guy was and we let it happen and unfold right before our eyes. In many ways we encouraged his behavior as we watched his crime spree unfold on the nightly cable news shows - where talking heads often provided him with the ways he could take advantage of the situation. Now you know why he watched so much TV. That's where he got many of his ideas as to how he can use the system to his advantage. The sad thing is we're still letting this happen as we helplessly watch how he's doled out these pardons saying this is what we expected that he'd do and in a sense give him our approval to get away with these atrocities. We green lighted him the whole way and he sat there saying to himself - if this is what they expect of me to do - I might as well do it.

As I eluded to in my title line in this post - we have to look for the good that we learned from this experience and if we accomplish anything from this 4 year running disaster - we have to close those holes, loopholes and shore up our Constitution so that this can never happen again to us.

If we don't do that - there will be another Trump coming down the line that maybe will even be more successful than this guy - and we won't be able to recover the next time.
