Weekend Writing Prompt — Uncanny

I’m astonished by the large number of Republican members of Congress who are still willing to take their chances supporting Trump after all of his craziness. I just can’t digest how they could capitulate to his madness. It’s uncanny.

    Maybe he has hypnotized them into supporting him.

    He really is a nasty piece of work. I can’t understand how millions and millions voted for him, believing he was even fit for office. He wasn’t fit. His tenure was a fiasco of corruption, stupid mistakes, and mountains of lies. He lied even when he didn’t have to about stupid stuff, like when he said his father was born in Germany. Why lie about that? It was easy to prove that his father was born in New York. Donald Trump is a psychopath. Thank God he’s out of office now. Pray God he never comes back. If justice is done, he will be sitting out the 2024 campaign because he’ll be sitting in a prison cell. Before he was elected, I warned people that he was a fascist. They called me an extremist. Well, it turned out that I was right. May he rot in prison until he dies.

      Yes you were — and are — right, but sadly, Trumpism seems to be living on.

        The fact that he has lied about his own/family’s origins should clue people in on the fraud of him lying 🤥 about another’s place of origin. (Sadly, Trump will never be a real boy.)

        Yes. It’s hard to believe that there are literally millions or people out there who have their heads up their asses. It’s really quite scary.

    You did a fine job with the writing prompt, asked the question that has no logical answer, but … did you HAVE to put his picture on here? I felt sick the moment I saw it! 🤢
