Earlier I read an article about Mary Trump’s new book about her uncle Donald, and I am beside myself with fury. I haven’t read it yet, but the book apparently alleges that Donald Trump cut off medical support for his nephew William, who has Cerebral Palsy, in retribution for losing a family dispute over inheritance. If that is true, then I no longer see how the thing currently calling itself president of America can claim to be human, for how could any human being do such a horrible, vindictive thing? People with CP need a lot of support, often round the clock care: to deny anyone, especially a relative, such care simply because you did not get what you want is beyond abominable. From his pictures, William Trump reminds me of a few of my friends with CP – not to mention Lyn – who, despite the severity of there condition, had as much to contribute to society as anyone. The thought that they would be denied their potential by someone acting so selfishly and childishly fills my heart with rage.
How the hell can such a disgrace to humanity currently occupy one of it’s most prestigious political positions, rather than grovelling around in a gutter begging for scraps dodging streams of piss where it belongs?
