Trump holding the bible in front of a church that he neither attends, nor subscribes to, demonstrates how far this conman will go to sell his snakeoil of hatred and fascism without a scintilla of irony given the homicidal damage this idiot has done the USA with his callous and risible incompetence, his identification with neo-nazis, his open admiration of dictators and tyrants, his ignorance of the Constitution, his demolition of democratic government from early on in his tenure with his Administration of unworthy Secretaries, his unbelievable lack of concentration and laziness, and his narcissistic indifference to the suffering and needs of the people he is supposed to lead.

He frequently surrounds himself with sycophantic fundamentalist evangelists. He cons no-one that he has a scintilla of love for the people, of a life of piety, of a philosophy driven by love supposedly promoted by Christianity. He is a vile hypocrite and this risible act is a monstrous offence that further demeans the integrity of United States around the world.

As a non-American, I take heart at the pushback by decent Americans against this authoritarian and morally incompetent monster who is destroying his country and doing untold damage to the Western World. Who can forgive Mitch McConnell and the laughable farce that was the Senate trial for their perverted decision on Trump’s guilt that led to his impeachment?

The Republican party demonstrated once again its subversion of every democratic principle. The final speech by the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, has proven absolutely prophetic:

“[Trump] has compromised our elections, and he will do so again. You will not change him. You cannot constrain him. He is who he is. Truth matters little to him. What’s right matters even less, and decency matters not at all.”
