The dumbing-down of our great country is now almost complete. An ignoramus, racist, egomaniacal pig is our president-elect. (Think ‘pig’ is too harsh? It may be too kind, based on his misogynistic ramblings.)
Do Donald Trump’s supporters understand that governing a country goes beyond insulting those who disagree with you? Trump has the knowledge and temperament of a bratty 4-year old, who believes he is the center of the universe. At 70, this perpetual child still says “This girl is fat. That girl is ugly. That boy is stupid.”
Ask those closest to him. They had to remove his twitter privileges because he couldn’t control his stupid tweets. Couldn’t control his tweets! Let’s give this guy the nuclear codes!
Trump fans, never concerned with facts, say the country is going to hell, spiraling out of control.
Here in the real world, the numbers say otherwise. The U.S. is much better off than we were eight years ago; much lower unemployment, much higher stock market, cheap gas.
Then what IS worse? “We let that African-born black guy be president too long. I hated that guy. And I hate Mexicans. And Muslims. And now a woman, named ‘Clinton,’ wanted to be president? Never!!”
With Hillary now in the rear-view mirror, the GOP/conservo-sphere can now direct their s#!t-slinging machine toward whatever bright, upcoming Democrat that dares to catch voter eyes. For almost 30 years the machine has been aimed at Hillary, and was most effective in painting her as the embodiment of walking evil.
Sometimes the wheels of progress slow to the point where they appear to stand still. It may feel that way today but, trust me, if we were moving backward, Barack Obama would never have been elected, let alone twice.
This election is a blip, albeit an insane blip. Not sure how long the blip will last, but ‘angry white guy’ still has the votes, for now, to elect an even angrier white guy.
The war is not lost, but this battle is. Accept it and buck up. We will need you to be strong for future elections.
