As the Senate impeachment trial draws nearer, Donald Trump appears to be losing what grasp he has had on the realities of being president of these United States. Many say that he is not fit mentally, emotionally, and experientially to do the job. He has become a one-man fountain spewing hatred in every direction.
His rallies have become fetid cesspools, outlets where he could vent about his impeachment and suck up the people’s adoration. His handlers in the White House have scheduled additional rallies, perhaps to protect his mental stability.
Someone with access to the president’s cell phone tweeted, calling Saturday nights’s knifing “horrific.” The tweet read:
‘We must all come together to fight, confront, and eradicate the evil scourge of anti-Semitism.’
Cuomo blamed Trump for “fomenting hate” that led to the Hanukkah stabbing just north of New York Saturday night. The incident wounded five people.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo appeared on MSNBC, criticizing the commander-in-chief. The governor actually blamed Trump for the violent attacks. Cuomo said, according to NPR:
‘What can anyone make of President Trump’s tweets? They say more about the sender than anything else. New York, he believes, is a Democratic state, and this is how he plays to his partisan base, by demonizing Democrats. Democrats are evil, Democrats are bad, Democrats have lost their mind, they’re anti-American. You foment the hate and then you’re shocked when you see these episodes of hate all across the country?’
Cuomo also tweeted to divert the blame back to Trump. Politicus reporter Sarah Reese Jones tweeted:
‘Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Trump is fomenting hate after Hanukkah stabbing in New York wounded five people.’

Cuomo claimed that Trump directed the blame to those he considered his enemies, those who disagreed with him. The governor claimed the knifing was part and parcel of the “hatred exploding” across the nation, that Trump released:
‘It is an American cancer that is spreading in the body politic.’
Cuomo characterized the violence as:
‘[An] act of domestic terrorism. These are people who intend to create mass harm, mass violence, generate fear, based on race, color, creed. That is the definition of terrorism.’
Governor Cuomo spoke about “people who are acting out on those hateful acts:”
‘That has now become the dialogue and the currency of this nation and it’s in politics, but then it resonates out of the politics into society. And now you see people who are acting out on those hateful acts and people are impressionable, and some people are lost and some people are vessels and some people are ill, and they hear it and they respond.’
The governor saw the president using hate as a “political weapon” against those he and his supporters perceived as his enemies. It appeared that Trump had no compunction about how badly his words would impact his people. Oddly, he did not appear to feel any emotion when his words injured or killed others.
Cuomo noted that Trump would continue spewing rancid words in his hate speech until and unless he was forced to stop creating danger against the innocent people. Then, the governor linked Trump’s leadership to the ensuing violence.
Cuomo said that Trump had to be held accountable for the culture he has created, enabled, and encouraged. His was of the culture of violence and hate.
