What are your top 5 most egregious FG acts?

Think we need to focus? He admits he throws many balls up in the air.

For me, the fact that a US House Committee concluded he purposely hid Covid from the citizenry and withheld PPE from doctors and nurses has got to be up there. For me anyway.

And like DU barbtries mentioned... Separating children from their parents at border...


What do you think?

4. Trump killed 1 Million Americans with his bullshit.

Mostly people that believed it. They trusted him, instead of science, They died.

7. +1 I know, broken record... But #1 for me. And he didn't

even get a slap. I watched when House committee announced conclusion that he purposely hid Covid and PPE and then story died before prime time. BTW supposedly can't attribute ALL deaths to him. Supposedly 140k. Sorry probably said that 140k times

15. Threatening to murder half of Congress and his own vice president takes up all 5 for me!

I had some MAGA dipshit try to argue with me that it was a peaceful protest and that they were setup by the FBI.

What kind of peaceful protest involves bringing semi automatic weapons and zip lines and erecting makeshift gallows and using Congressional offices as toilets? That isn't my definition of a peaceful protest.

17. The rampant nepotism led to so many later abuses

Basically everything Jared and Ivanka did for 4 years was an abuse of office. The grifting and emoluments (booking events at his hotels and resorts) amounted to taking bribes from foreign officials. Appointing unqualified people to ambassadorships and cabinet posts, simply because they made campaign donations - that was repulsive. His later appointments were people whose only qualification was groveling at Chump's feet (or worse). Abuse and mismanagement of the Secret Service, abuse and mismanagement of the Joint Chiefs and the intelligence organizations. His groveling to foreign dictators and tyrants.

However I agree with previous posters that his single worst offense was his failure to act in time for the Covid pandemic... His failure to call for the lockdown quarantine, and his failure to provide the PPP & vaccines that were essential for the cities and states that were hit the earliest and the hardest. (For political revenge and no other reason.)

18. The first is the worst

Murdered over 1 mil Americans and other heinous pandemic crimes. Nothing else compares to that. And then your two… then jan 6 plus the whole classified documents etc. it’s hard to pick when someone has committed so many awful crimes…there are so many more…I’m not going to list all of them. One would be, and I think this is a very serious one, the constant attempt to change a democracy into fascism by constantly mentally assaulting everybody with his crap whether it be via tweet or other means.which includes inciting violence. He was inciting violence in his Nazi campaign rallies and should’ve been arrested then, at the very least prohibited from running for office. This country has no standards, no real standards, for who can run for office.

22. Tons of good thoughts M.. trying to synthesize

The mere using of low infos as like his own personal army I think of J6 and how he had zero regard for his own supporters ( however low we think of them). And how he constantly used them to garner personal wealth.

21. By the criteria of which did the most harm,

I have 3 that I totally loathe him for.

Covid denial that killed so many Americans, including my brother and an uncle.

Kidnapping children at the southern border and caging both children and adults for seeking asylum.

Planning and fomenting sedition to overthrow an elected government and make himself permanent dictator.

25. So Many Choices

1. Covid denial, mismanagement/theft of PPE and other supplies, and subsequent death of one million Americans

2. January 6, with all that entails

3. Collusion with Russia/Putin

4. The Big Lie and the million other lies he told, undermining the concept of truth

5. Undermining Government institutions by hiring liars, sycophants, incompetents, and traitors

26. There are many individual acts.

When reviewed in total they mainly fall into 2 categories.

The blackmailing of Ukraine, covid denial and the insurrection are at the top of the list of category 1: Keep being the president no matter what. Many of the lies and machinations with the DOJ serve this purpose.

Separating kids from their parents at the border and taking the side of Nazis after Charlottesville were the big ones in category 2: Foment racism from the office of the presidency. His reaction to the Black Lives Matter protests and Lafayette Square are included. In his twisted mind, some of this may cross over with his desire to be re-elected or just say he was.

27. Have to go with

5) 1/6

The former President did a lot of shitty stuff, taking help from our enemies to win an election, sharing Intel with our enemies, regularly profiting off his office, hatch act violations, emolument clause violations, playing foostsie and worse with violent dictators, attacking judges, locking up children in cages, separating family’s, kidnapping children and deporting parents, ignoring norms, breaking laws, but to me, the worst was as the president of the US, he wound people up and sent them to the Capitol in a violent insurrection. The Article 2 Branch supporting the attack on the article 1 branch.

29. He was the worst ever IMO but..

the things he did to try to gut democracy and ignoring the COVID pandemic are at the top of the list. January 6 insurrection, the big lie/refusing to concede and denying that COVID was a big deal are my top 3. So many others to choose from. For your thread, I will pick 2 more - the Trump tax cuts for the rich and installing 3 RW Supreme Court justices.
