    Default Book by ‘Anonymous’ describes Trump as cruel, inept and a danger to the nation

    "The author — who first captured attention in 2018 as the unidentified author of a New York Times opinion column — describes Trump careening from one self-inflicted crisis to the next, “like a twelve-year-old in an air traffic control tower, pushing the buttons of government indiscriminately, indifferent to the planes skidding across the runway and the flights frantically diverting away from the airport.”

    Watching Trump erratically leave our Kurdish allies in Syria, ... and then immediately rush back in when someone mentioned 'Oil', makes 'Anonymous' a believable author.

    This pretty well sums it up:

    “It’s like showing up at the nursing home at daybreak to find your elderly uncle running pantsless across the courtyard and cursing loudly about the cafeteria food, as worried attendants tried to catch him,” the author writes. “You’re stunned, amused, and embarrassed all at the same time. Only your uncle probably wouldn’t do it every single day, his words aren’t broadcast to the public, and he doesn’t have to lead the US government once he puts his pants on.”

    If you stand behind what you write, you put your name on it...don't you? His first try at this failed (didn't he write an similar article that flopped?)..so here he goes again...

    WTF?? Are you and Ox playing with each other again?
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    It's a quote from the book.

    The trouble with the Republicans is that they want all statements to come from the Pope or someone similar, under guarantee of infallibility. Many of us were brought up Protestant and tend to go by whether a piece fits with our knowledge of the person concerned, and since this is Trumpf, the comments seem kindly and restrained.

    Not the Pope...just put your name on what you write...stand behind or don't put it out there...
    I'm Presbyterian...I'm always kind and restrained

    At home, doubtless. Stalin had the same view of anonymity! Like McCarthy, he believed everybody should sign what they said so that he could destroy their lives.

    Why do you think people should not stand behind what they write? Usually authors put their names on the covers of the books they pen along with their pictures ...why not in this case?

    Look into what happens to those who do sometime. If you tell the truth, ever, make your will too.

    Everyone should have a will...nothing to do with telling the truth, though.
    If you're fearful, don't publish your thoughts...

    ...Yoda
    Now who wants all that?

    Fear is a waste of time, but so is giving the bullies home details. McCarthy finished honesty in America for a hundred years and more.
