Sorry. So many typos in that post. Here, a corrected version:

In 2001, Donald Trump changed his party affiliation to Democratic. In 2009, he changed it to Republican. In 2011, he changed it to Independent. In 2012, he changed it back to Republican. Between 1989 and 2015, he made $694,750 in contributions to Democratic candidates, including Charlie Rangel, Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, John Kerry, Anthony Weiner, and Joe Biden. His largest contributions to any Republican running at the federal level were $10,600 to John McCain. Prior to 2011, he gave more to Democrats than he did to Republicans, and he never gave much, given his net worth. He is whatever the exact opposite of a generous spirit is.

Trump, of course, is a racist and a con man. The man (using the term loosely) who took out a full-page ad in the New York Times calling for the execution of the Central Park 5, who were proved to be innocent, was horrified at the election of Barack Obama and became the leading proponent of the utterly unfounded birtherism conspiracy theory about this president. Having so committed himself on that extreme side of the aisle, this serial grifter with no actual principles or beliefs except his love of self, lust for money by any criminal means, hatred of perceived enemies, racism, sexism, and utter contempt for anyone not rich, saw an opportunity to feed his need for adulation when Bannon, Sessions, and Miller approached him to run for President and carry their white supremacist agenda forward.

So, he promptly threw over his previously often expressed views—support for women’s right to choose, an opposition to guns and hunting—and made himself over as an UberRepublican Nationalist (with lots of coaching). In a different world, he could have ended up running as a Democrat, for he has no actual values. In private, he ridicules the folks who support them, expressing, often, his contempt for Evangelical Christians, for example. And because he has no editor, no filter, his private contempt sometimes spills over in public, as when he makes nasty comments about the venues he is speaking at (Erie, Dalton), tells his mostly poor, working class audiences that he likes rich people, says that he really likes uneducated people (because they vote for him), says that the yokels in his base would vote for him if he committed murder in broad daylight, and passes a tax cut and then goes to Mar-a-Lago and tells his rich pals at dinner that he just gave them a big Christmas present. So, not a Christian. Not an actual populist champion of the working class.

And the man who evaded the draft, called our fallen soldiers “losers,” ridiculed John McCain for being captured and held prisoner, sold out to Putin, and incited insurrection against the government of the United States is no American patriot. Far from it. He traffics in sedition and treason and has done so throughout his term in office.

Trump has one religion and one political affiliation, both of which are Donald Trump (though he also worships Mammon).

Because he cares only about himself, he demands absolute loyalty (loyalty oaths!!!) but has NONE in return. Example: has there ever been a more abjectly kow-towing, toadying sycophant than Mike Pence has been to the Orange Idiot? But look how Trump repays such groveling. Trump loves the groveling but has contempt for the groveler (most of us share this second trait).

Trump’s a completely unprincipled man and capable of ANYTHING, such as traitorously cozying up to dictators; abandoning our allies the Kurds, the Ukrainians at war with Russia, and the freaking Europeans, for heaven’s sake; and fomenting insurrection not once but over and over and over and over again (Don’t let them take our beautiful monuments! BLM is Antifa! Liberate Michigan! Stop the Steal! Fight! You will never take back the country with weakness!). He is utterly amoral. But, ofc, we knew that a long, long time ago:

“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

“If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her dating her.”

“I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ‘em by the p****y.”

He is a vile, ignorant, lazy, criminal, treasonous, utterly amoral and unprincipled con man and creep driven solely by greed, vindictiveness, and a need for continual praise.
