As I always said that President Donald Trump is a businessman instead of a statesman. And he has acted as a boss who treats his White House stuffs and cabinet secretaries as employees instead of fellow civil servants.
Like two weeks ago, Trump showed us a big weather map in the Oval Office. The map was scribbled with a black sharpie so the state of Alabama could be included in Hurricane Dorian’s expected track.
And then the usual exchange of fire between the President and the media. If you think that’s it, you are so wrong because the President wanted to fight on.
The New York Times reported that the Secretary of Commerce Wilbur L. Ross threatened to fire top employees at NOAA responsible for weather forecasts after the agency’s Birmingham office contradicted President Trump’s claim that Hurricane Dorian might hit Alabama, according to three people familiar with the discussion.
Maybe Secretary Ross is another Trump loyalist but the order was directly from above. Two days later, the New York Times reported that Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, told Wilbur Ross, the commerce secretary, to have the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration publicly correct the forecasters.
And Mr. Mulvaney did it “in response to the president’s request”.
Trump ordered his top White House aide and one of his cabinet secretaries to threaten a group of scientists. That is tremendous, fantastic and SAD! Only third world dictators need to keep people’s mouths shut and elected officials always admit their mistakes. Apparently Trump is more of a dictator.
In the dystopian fiction 1984, the ruling Big Brother was always trying to keep everyone in line. A change of policy would lead to the recall and revise of old newspapers to make the government seem consistent.
I don’t think Trump really has read that book because I don’t believe an illiterate like him can read anything. But it seems that Trump definitely know all the tricks of Big Brother. Maybe he does not know how to govern the country, but he understands what he needs to rule the nation.
That’s why Trump has been trying to be the only voice in the White House. Even scientists are not allowed to speak the truth. Big brother doesn’t like any resistance. Again, anyone who failed to go in line was kicked out. That was what happened to Mr. James Mattis, Mr. Rex Tillerson, Mr. John Bolton and Mr. Steve Bannon.
People said America is the new Rome and look, we even have our own Ceasar.
One capital, one White House and one ruller, the protector of all 50 states, the one true GOP, the builder of the south border wall and the chief twitter officer, Lord Trump of the New York Central Park.
Big Brother is Watching You!
