Tell me why I ask some more?

I am puzzled with inconsistencies. Using The Beatles’ song “Tell me why?” once again, allow me to ask a few more questions.

Why should we believe someone who said two months ago he did not know who QAnon is, tweeted more QAnon based inane conspiracies. applauded a Georgia Republican Congressional candidate who touts such inanity and then repeats on national TV he still did not know who QAnon is?

Why should we believe the same person whose modus operandi is to create fear, say he did not want to tell Americans the truth about the coronavirus as he did not want to create a panic? Panic is his currency. It seemed OK for him to relay the inane QAnon tweet about Osama Bin Laden.

Why should we believe someone who repeatedly says and does racist things and endorses groups that want to diminish the rights of non-whites, then claims he is the least racist person in the world?

Why would voters not embrace the lesson of decisive victory in New Zealand by incumbent Jacinda Ardern? Ardern’s election victory is seen as an endorsement of an inclusive brand of leadership that is built on empathy and crisis management, two traits missing in several leaders such as the US president.

Why would a Senate candidate who has a good chance of unseating the Republican incumbent think it is a good idea to have an affair with a married woman? Yes, he may have been separated, but that shows poor judgment.

Of course, I am still trying to understand the actions of a sexting congressman, a groping and assaulting president, and former presidents who could not keep their paints on.

  1. Note to Readers: The US president has claimed not only that moderator Savannah Guthrie was biased in his Town Hall, but the moderator for the next debate will be biased. Two thoughts. First, he is saying it is Guthrie’s fault for his inability to tell the truth. That is akin to blaming Melania for his two known affairs.

    Second, he is setting up for a pull-out from the debate claiming unfairness. This is likely because he does not do very well with them. He probably is calculating will he get more out of doing a replacement Town Hall with one of his sycophants like Sean Hannity.

  2. Reblogged this on Filosofa's Word and commented:
    Our friend Keith asks a lot of questions … questions we should ALL be asking … and more. Thank you, Keith, for homing in on some of the most relevant questions we must all be asking in the course of the next two weeks.

  3. Keith, I tried to “like” this post, but since Gutenberg burst on the scene, WP often ignores my efforts. I’m logged in so I’m not sure what’s going on. In any event … good post/good questions.

  4. Note to Readers: Here is a question I have asked before. Why did Donald Trump have a fixer? Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, eg, do not need fixers and they have lots of money. Could it be there are a lot of embarassing things done by the president that need fixing? Michael Cohen, said fixer, testified he had sent over 500 cease and desist letters or agreements. It should also be noted at the time of the election, Trump had over 4,000 lawsuits, which average out to 1 1/2 lawsuits per week.

  5. Note to Readers: This is a summary of Chris Wallace’s interview with Chief of Staff Mark Meadows regarding the president’s fascination with QAnon. This was back in August.

    “White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows had a minor meltdown on Fox News Sunday after host Chris Wallace asked him to comment on President Donald Trump’s embrace of the conspiracy group QAnon, which has been deemed a domestic terror threat by the FBI. ‘You can end this controversy right now,’ Wallace told his guest. ‘Does the president disavow, does he condemn QAnon?’

    Like others from the administration, Meadows pleaded ignorance about the group—whose adherents falsely claim the president is quietly at war with pedophile Satanists determined to bring him down—and lashed out at Wallace for even asking about it. ‘You’re bringing it up and it’s ridiculous!’ Meadows said. ‘If you want to talk about conspiracies, let’s get back to talking about how the FBI and others within the FBI spied on the Trump campaign.’

    So, let’s for the sake of argument, say Meadows was correct about them not knowing who QAnon id, then why would the Chief of Staff not investigate and brief the president? Of course, there is the flip side where Trump said to Savannah Guthrie that after denying knowledge of QAnon, he then added he heard they were against pedophilia. Well, which is it? Do you know them or not?

  6. Hello Keith. Most of your questions I understood, but one I have questions about. On the “Republican incumbent think it is a good idea to have an affair with a married woman”, question I am curious why you think it is the business of anyone not involved when consenting adults have sexual relations? To say it is bad judgment means you think people should have a right to weigh in on other adults consenting sexual actions done in private? As an openly gay man in a same gender relationship for 30+ years and who has for a lifetime fought against having other people judge, condemn, and feel they have a say in own consensual adult relationships, I reject that notion, judgement, and assumed authority. Hugs

    • Scottie, my opinion on this is less relevant. My point is in the middle of a campaign he was winning, he chose to have an affair that was discovered. He risked public opinion. To your point, it matters less far than competency. Clinton and JFK were skirt chasers, which is their choice. What Trump has been accused of by over 20 women is sexual assault and misconduct, actually invading a woman’s private parts or walking in on teen beauty pageants, routinely. That is far worse as it is a crime. I am just ticked off at Cal Cunningham, who has now brought losing into question to an unethical Senator, in my view, for his past actions. Keith

      • Hello Keith. Public opinion. Yes my friend that was my point, it is not the public’s right to judge this. It was not the public’s right to judge the Clinton / Monica affair either. It was Hillary’s right to do so. They were consenting adults. Bill Clinton did not get in trouble for the sex, but for lying about it. It shouldn’t have been investigated in the first place. As for tRump he is accused of crimes, and in some cases admitted to sex crimes with minors in the teen pagents dressing rooms by walking in on them when they were changing, while some were naked. That is by his own words an intended attempt to see nude minors in a private situation where they expected privacy. Pervert. That the public should and can weigh in on as it is a crime.

        My point public officials should be judged on their policies and actions that affect the population. His affair with a consensual adult is not affecting the public at all, and is none of their / our business. Hugs
