I’ve refrained from screaming about Trump in a blog, but enough is enough.
For those of us unlucky enough to have been born into a political family, or who are just politically minded or inclined, this year’s presidential race is anything but presidential.
On one hand, you have woman who has experience in politics and government, who has been villified her entire career as a working, adult woman. A woman who has been a first lady, senator, and secretary of state. Someone who has worked with children and did something most of us wouldn’t do……stay married to a serial adulterer.
On the other hand, you have a supposedly successful billionaire who builds buildings, sells and buys real estate and has had nothing to do with politics or actual government……unless you count having to deal with city and county governments to get his buildings built.
This is where it gets to be “fun”. (And I use the term “fun” in the most ironic and sarcastic way possible).
Am I, and millions like me, tired of listening to Trumps rhetoric, hate speech, insults, demeaning speech about women, minorities and the disabled? Are we tired of hearing him ask our greatest enemy to hack government emails? Are we tired of his lies, exaggerations and innuendos? Are we tired of listening to him deny what he’s said and done or trying to twist it so what he’s said and done doesn’t look so bad?
YES, WE ARE. And millions of others are waking up to the hateful, narcisistic, sociopathic, egomaniacle moron that Trump truly is.
But this week was the final straw. This man is not only a serial adulterer, he is a sexual predator, as well.
It’s not bad enough that he asked Russia to hack government emails. Which happens to be a violation of National Security and Espionage Acts. It’s not bad enough he’s lied about having ties to Putin. He does. (the internet forgets nothing) It’s not bad enough he eggs his supporters on when they scream “hang Hillary” or “shoot the bitch” and stands there smiling at them while it’s all being recorded for posterity (and for psychiatrists to analyze).
It’s not enough that he calls on his supporters to “second amendment” Clinton and others who are against him such as reporters.
Yes, you read that correctly. I mention it so you remember He’s telling people who already are violently disposed toward Clinton to “second amendment” her. His spin is that he meant that the supporters of the 2nd amendment get out and vote. That, my friends, is a crock of crap and we all know it.
The second amendment is about guns and the right to carry them. It’s about a well armed militia. It’s about protecting our citizens.
The one thing it isn’t, is about voting.
To call on already mentally unstable people (remember the people screaming to hang her or shoot her?) and say that they could “maybe handle her” is tantamount to calling for her death.
Yes, I said it.
A political candidate is calling for another candidates death. Out loud. On t.v.. In front of hundreds in his audience and millions on live television.
This is totally unheard of in this country.
This is completely un-American.
This is insane.
And this is how Trump works. He plants things in other people’s minds and lets it fester. Just like he planted the false idea that the election will be rigged. Just like he planted the false idea that Clinton chose the dates of the debates. Both lies but both lies designed to inflame his followers and make him look like the big man he isn’t.
When you call the people of the Phillipines, who are our allies, “animals”, and all Mexicans (except those he likes, of course) thieves, rapists and murders, and women “pigs”, you think others will pay for your wall, or expect politicians from other countries to donate to your campaign (which is illegal as hell in ALL countries) you are beyond a spoiled, rich, entitled, brat.
You are a dangerous, delusional, narcissistic psychopath. You have empathy for no one or nothing. If it isn’t done your way, by your rules, you won’t play.
This grown man is still a five year old who, when thwarted, will take his ball but he won’t go home. Instead, he’ll malign you with the worst lies and get others to do his dirty work. He is an abusive tyrant wannabe and, if elected, he will destroy this country.
Trump is everything this country shouldn’t be. Ever.
