The big man, “Little Trumpy” (“Trumpy Malinki” in Russian) blares forth as “Putin’s Trumpet (“Putin’s Trompette”), but the songs are increasingly off-key. Fans are starting to head for the exits. The first tomatoes are directed at the stage and the performer. Malinki means small or little in Russian. According to some reports, which could not be confirmed, Vladimir Putin himself favors the nickname “Trumpy Malinki”.
The trumpeter, Trumpy Malinki, grows smaller with each huffing and puffing as Putin’s Trompette. Some have taken to calling him Putin’s strumpet, which sounds pretty much the same.
Stature, in the end, is a function of character and honor, and achievements gained in the service of those qualities.
“Treason most foul!” many proclaim after seeing Trumpinki Malinki’s groveling performance at his joint press conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on July 16. Let’s don’t quibble over words like “treason” and “traitor”.
For there can be little doubt that Trumpinki betrayed his country in Helsinki, and in fact has done so since his campaign and his inauguration in January, 2017.
In Helsinki, Trumpy Malinki’s first act of betrayal of country. or “treason”, was to meet with Vladimir Putin in a two-hour meeting at which no official note-takers or other high officials were present, only an interpreter for each side.
That was a betrayal of country, a high crime and misdemeanor, for which Trumpinki should be removed from office.
Not since the Greeks entered Troy in their famous Trojan Horse, laying waste to Troy and defeating the Trojan Empire, has the enemy so easily penetrated the defenses of a great nation.
The enemy is within the gates! Within the White House! In control of the president’s brain! The pro-Russian Republican Party, which has become a Little Trumpy cult, supports the cult leader no matter what he does.
The Russians control Little Trumpy’s brain.
What is to be done?
How can our democracy, our civilization, be saved so long as Little Trumpy sets atop the American government, and continues to blare commands with Putin’s Trompette throughout the land?
