46. This should not be allowed while using public funding.

As reprehensible, immoral and repulsive as it may be, what tRump says is protected in America by our Constitution unless it's proven he incites violence and someone takes him to court for doing so. That said.....

What's just as offensive to me is a U.S. president using public tax funds to enable this behavior and to any reasonable person, it would surely be an impeachable offense. If he insists on behaving this way in a public setting and using the bully pulpit for fascist politics, he should pay for his travel and security and reimburse the Treasury for lost work time. That would put a stop to this bullshit.

There also is the issue of tRump violating his oath of office in that he should execute his Constitutional duties on behalf of all Americans, not a select few. In essence what's he's implying is that some 60 to 70 percent of Americans are not worthy of even having a president. On this basis, in a rational world he would be removed from office either by impeachment or execution of the 25th Amendment.

I would like to see provisions in future budgets that prevents politicians from using public funds for travel and security purposes for political campaigns. Just tighten the purse strings until it's impossible to do so, thereby returning our politicians to being true public servants.

I am indeed an idealist and a dreamer.

KY rant done for Friday........
