As we all know, President Donald J. Trump ruins America each day with more inane promises and repulsive actions. The results of which will forever taint the legacy of the USA. With his term coming to an end however, now is the time to reflect on how badly he impacted our world.
One aspect of his tyranny that many people overlook is how he mistreated and destroyed animals and their habitats. Many of these animals have specific characteristics to them that could be seen as contrast to the president’s flaws. Here are just a few of the many animals that follow this trend.
Kangaroos are mainly known for their fighting and jumping abilities. Another great trait about the kangaroo is their compassion and love for their offspring. Mothers will carry around their joey until they are strong enough to thrive on their own.
The parenting skills are what president Donald Trump is afraid of. Trump was never a great father to his children, and had a lot less strength to care for them than a kangaroo.
The President lashed out at kangaroos earlier this year with not supporting or aiding with the bushfires in Australia. He only offered his “love”, and if we know one thing about Trump, it’s that he has none. When similar fires occurred in California, he was noticeably more concerned and distraught, which is most likely because there are no kangaroos in California.
Kangaroos are not the only animal that makes Trump jealous. The penguin is a very social creature with a focus on relationship strength and happiness, something his relationships lack. The combination of that and the discovery of LGBTQ penguins, causes him to stop at no lengths to force inequality on the penguins.
The penguins characteristic of strong relationships mocks Trump. It is no secret that Melania’s and his relationship has been under strain ever since they met each other, and his retaliation on penguins is uncalled for and childlike.
His actions were and still are distasteful and full of hatred, especially against the LGBTQ community . The president has made a decision to send ships to Antarctica in order to gather polar resources. This move will be devastating to penguin numbers and habitats. Trump is obviously insecure about his weak relationship with Melania, and will stop at nothing to take out his frustration on penguins.
Orangutans are very intelligent creatures on their own. Give them materials to work with, and they become incredibly fascinating to work with. Not only are they capable of puzzle solving, but can also create art, build interesting things, and do basic human actions.
Trump is insecure about his ability to make rational decisions. He has proven again and again when given the right materials like his power and position, he cannot competently make choices for himself, his family or his country.
The president has taken out his anger on these magnificent creatures by offering no support whatsoever to the disasters happening in north Sumatra. Fires and farming plague the Orangutans habitat, and Trump has done nothing to even acknowledge them.
The seahorse, as stated in a previous article, is becoming a powerful LGBTQ+ ally, but the seahorse has another defining quality to it. The seahorse also demonstrates what a real male leader should be. With their ability to break social norms, the male seahorse displays true male leadership, which entails being thoughtful and sticking up for other oppressed groups.
The US president is a coward that hates when people call him out for his shortcomings. He understands the threat seahorses bring to his fragile ego, and he is committing heinous acts to try and stop them.
Trump and his fellow Republicans are cowards who are denying climate change and dismissing any questioning about it. As we know, climate change is impacting the oceans, making them warmer. With sea horses being delicate creatures, this is an obvious attack on them and their views.
How do all of these tie
With the current view on our president, it comes as no surprise that he would virulently lash out at innocent animals. Since this list of creatures all have a characteristic that Trump yearns for, it makes perfect sense for why he would throw a temper tantrum and use his power to wipe them out.
It is important as a nation that we stand together against his tyrannical practices and put him back in his place.
