Trumps embarrassment at NATO

Have we all not grown weary of being the Joke of the World?

Donald Trump not only embarrasses himself at the NATO world meeting, although he seems fully unaware of most things including this, he embarrasses our country, defames democracy and casts a shadow on the republic.

When will Congress bring forth the courage to provide the checks and balances set forth by our founders? I imagine using the “Vaudeville hook” to pull this performer off the stage and bring back some integrity to the office of president.

The vertebral inadequacy of Congress brings to mind the quote from the great Harry Houdini: “It is still an open question, however, as to what extent exposure really injures a performer.”

The performer is unaware. The country is suffering.
