So, who is really to blame?

Poor old Bryan Gould. He is still moaning about the last US election and Trump becoming President.? His latest whining is reported in??A Newspaper. Quote.

The guilty pleas and convictions of two of Donald Trump’s senior advisers – Paul Manafort, his former campaign director, and Michael Cohen, his personal lawyer – have added to the sense that his presidency is mired in a swamp of sleaze, corruption and moral depravity, and are likely to hasten the day when he is called fully to account.

But these trials have not succeeded in putting in the dock those who are truly responsible for lumbering us with a president who is so manifestly unfitted for the role.

Those who have been so self-serving, weak-kneed and lacking in principle as to foist Trump upon us have not yet been called to account, and show no sign of being willing to take responsibility for what they have done. They are, of course, the Republican Party.

The Grand Old Party has, for the most part, had an honourable history in offering the American people a true choice as to who should lead them. It is hard to comprehend that the party could have allowed itself to be so thoroughly taken over by a charlatan, and then re-moulded in his image.

Yet, that is what has happened. The Republican Party has become the Trump Party. The Republicans passed up the chance to reject Trump and all he stood for, and in effect sold their souls for the sake of getting a supposed Republican into the White House. They have since been unable to disown this Faustian bargain for fear of losing the support of those voters who respond particularly to Trump’s special brand of politics – a group of voters who are almost certainly a minority in the electorate as a whole but who, thanks to Trump’s coat-tails, now control the Republican Party. […] End of quote.

And on and on he complains.

Let’s help Bryan with a small rewrite, shall we?

The continual MSM harping on about Russian collusion and the never-ending Special Counsel inquiries into absolutely anything and everything has added to the sense that Trump’s presidency is mired in a swamp of sleaze, corruption and moral depravity, and are likely to hasten the day when he is called fully to account.

But this has not succeeded in putting in the dock those who are truly responsible for lumbering us with a president who, we are told, is so manifestly unfitted for the role.

Those who have been so self-serving, weak-kneed and lacking in principle as to allow Trump to win have not yet been called to account, and show no sign of being willing to take responsibility for what they have done. They are, of course, the Democratic Party.

The Democratic Party has, for the most part, had an honourable history in offering the American people a true choice as to who should lead them. It is hard to comprehend that the party could have allowed itself to be so thoroughly taken over by a charlatan, and then re-moulded in her image.

Yet, that is what has happened. The Democratic Party became the Clinton Party. The Democrats passed up the chance to reject Hillary and all she stood for, and in effect sold their souls for the sake of getting another Clinton into the White House. They have since been unable to disown this Faustian bargain for fear of losing the support of those voters who respond particularly to Hillary’s special brand of crooked politics – a group of voters who, it transpired, were a minority in the electorate as a whole but who, thanks to Hillary’s questionable accounting and IT practices,? controlled the Democratic Party.
