Reading the 9/22 NY Times story suggests many have felt that Trump’s post-election behavior has been equally treasonous as during his Presidency!

This is not new as stories like one in 2018 have long been around which get similar reactions from Trump. Read an example here.

This remains his standard modus operandi in treating many other crimes in his list of indictable offenses for which he was awarded two impeachments, a standard of behavior which has continued after his term ended.

Now as we see his legacy of malfeasance, which his GOP colleagues are emulating, we wonder what such acts such as voting laws to restrict minority voting or the passage of anti-abortion choice laws or the attacks on getting vaccinated or mask wearing, will incur as we move toward the midterms in 2022.

While Biden remains currently beset with woes not entirely, even nearly, of his own making, such as the border crisis or his withdrawal from Afghanistan, it will seem that his record of seeking solutions should attract future votes from any voters when compared to the GOP program of NO governance which is attempting to sabotage any and all Biden’s initiatives.

Surely the voters of every stripe, except those of his inner circle or Trump’s fantasy believers, would prefer governance over no governance or competence over no competence which will allow the further widening of the wealth gap.

That dangerous wealth gap situation creates increasing dissatisfaction among the poorest among us, many of whom likely are among Trump’s core supporters.

Hard to figure, but any dull bulb who would rather expose himself or herself or anyone they encounter in among family, friends or in public with a death sentence by not getting vaccinated leaves the rest us captives of their defacto felonies.

Even as we know nearly almost all who die from COVID are unvaccinated, a few like my 83 year old friend who died of COVID this month even after having taken 2 shots of the vaccine.

Even when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was the leader, after advocating raising the National Debt limit numerous times, he now says no GOP Senate member will join in voting for the increase of it, so he can use the increase as a Democratic fault, when such an increase is already needed to pay government expenses already incurred.

What more great behavior from Trump’s GOP will we get to experience before the midterms?

What legal penalties will Trump incur now or later? Perhaps none, except the perpetual disrespect from the majority of all thinking Americans and those who write the history of our democracy if it survives his ministrations.
