Correcting The Record On The Fine Tuned Machine


February 16, 2017 – The date of the 77 minute long press conference packed full of alt facts in a rambling, sometimes disjointed, presentation by our new President. This left The Democratic Road feeling the need to write this open letter in an attempt to correct the record, because sorry Mr. President, your administration is not running like,

A fine tuned machine”!

Dear Donald:

It is so ironic that you continually put down President Obama, accusing him of being a liar and saying that he left you ”a mess”.  While doing this, you add to the  long list of blatant lies (alt facts) that you spew so often,  as if we won’t notice. It must really get in your craw that the man you insulted with your birther lies from the day he announced he was running for President, has one-upped you every step of the way, and now, it is an avalanche of irony as his positive statistics bury yours. You must hate truth so much, that you are driven to constantly try to convince people that your lies are true. The alt fact universe that you try to create tells us who you really are – an insecure, megalomaniacal, sociopathic narcissist that is strictly ego driven!

You do yourself a disservice with this behavior. It is not becoming of the President of the United States.  You are now the leader of the free world and the most powerful nation on earth and as such, you should be distinguished and honorable . If only you could handle your duties in a manner befitting the position, but, sadly, you struggle with this.  You really need to clean up your act, because we the people are not buying this one. We see you and we recognize what you are doing as you try to put a happy, “all is well” face on things that are going horribly wrong.  And, face it, you can’t hold a candle to President Obama.

You continue to claim that you won the election by a landslide, which you said was the,

Biggest electoral win since Ronald Reagan.”

The only race you have won by a landslide is the “who lies the most” contest.  The accuracy rate of the claims and comments coming out of your mouth that are true (only 4%) or mostly true (only 12%), for a total of only 16% accuracy in what comes from your lips, meaning that you spew untruths or partial untruths 84% of the time.  We know this Mr. President, we can see and hear it, and we check, and you should, too. But do you? This must be why you are not embarrassed enough to stop it.

Here, for your edification, are some of the real facts:

You won the presidency in 2016 with 304 electoral college votes. President Reagan won the presidency in 1980 with 489 electoral college votes. He was reelected in 1984 with 525 votes.

George H.W. Bush won the presidency in 1988 with 426 electoral college votes.

Bill Clinton won in 1992 and 370 electoral college votes in 1992 and 379 votes in 1996.

George W Bush won in 2004 with 286 electoral college votes.

Barack Obama garnered 365 electoral college votes in 2008 and he won again with 332 votes in 2012.

So Mr. Trump, the real facts – not the alt facts – show that Presidents George H.W. Bush, Clinton, and Obama all received more electoral college votes in than you in five elections since President Reagan was  re-elected in 1984. The real facts, not the alt facts, show that you were elected with the third lowest electoral college vote total in 40 years covering eleven elections.

As President Lincoln said,

“You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all the people all of the time.”

Face it, Donald- you are playing the fool, losing what little face you had left after a trouncing in the popular vote of close to 3 million votes by a woman who is more capable than you could ever hope to be. It must be awful to be so misogynistic and racist, and to have lost so bigly to both a woman and to a bi-racial candidate. It must really be tough being you right now as you are digging yourself deeper and deeper with every lie, misstatement, and unfounded accusation that you make.

As President George W. Bush said,

“Fool me once, shame on— shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.”

May we suggest, for your own self-interest, and the good of the country, that you stop underestimating the American public and playing the fool. Be assured that we will be there every step of the way and we will blister the soles of your feet holding them to the fire. Be careful sir as the lies will burn you.

Please Mr. President, fact check yourself before opening your mouth, so that you stop inserting your foot. We realize that you loved campaigning, when you could say whatever you wanted to your small and uninformed constituency, but you are not in Kansas anymore, where you were miraculously carried by a 26% minority tornado of voters to victory in November. Your house, tower, and estate are now falling upon you in Washington D.C., New York City, and Palm Beach, where we the people are watching.

  1. Beautiful. We have been discussing this man a long, long, long time ago, about this elected Minority leader. From his actions against President Obama, we suspected that MONEY was getting to his head and brains. WE talked about it many, many years, that his minority leader does not seems right, and should be checked out by at least THREE independent doctors and psychologists Well it was the DEMOCRATS to demand, that it happened before he was given the chance to run as a candidate.
    WE believe ONLY a person who is CRAZY, would really be behaving in this manner, and we DON’T know, what took WISE, INTELLIGENT, EDUCATED, EXPERIENCED Americans, in taking so long to see this. This man MUST be REMOVED urgently, before he used the nuclear button on us all. Thanks Americans.


  2. Clinton did not win re-election in 1996 with 538 electoral votes….that’s the ENTIRE electoral college. You’re saying Dole won none? Please check this…. a number of sites show WJC with 379 electoral votes in 1996. That makes Reagan’s 1984 victory the largest. You should amend your article.
