Like a spoiled child screaming for attention, Donald Trump will say anything that enters his 5-year-old mind. It’s as though he’s standing in the middle of the kindergarten playground, spewing venomous, childish dribble hoping to attract like-minded bullies. Trouble is he can’t let up on his ridiculous rants for fear he’ll lose his attraction.
Now that he’s acquired a national audience, Trump hopes to hang onto it at all costs. Sanity be damned, as he shows his insanity for ridding the world of all he deems incompatible with his lifestyle. And those who are riding his coattails have no clue where Trump’s insatiable appetite for the absurd will take them.
So now Trump wants to ban Muslims along with Mexicans from making their home in the U.S.
Who’ll be next? The homeless? Welfare recipients? Women seeking abortions? Gay and Lesbians seeking to marry?
Trump mouths off without consideration for what any of these groups contribute to the fabric of American society. They serve in the military. They work at menial jobs…jobs most of us would consider only as a last resort, and maybe not even then. They work in healthcare and insurance offices and government agencies, providing necessary services for the rest of the populace. Some folks within these groups have even become entrepeneurs…gardeners and landscapers…hair stylists and boutique owners…to name only a few.
Donald Trump is a big jerk. How his children…wife and ex-wives…can stand the ugliness he exudes every time he speaks is unfathomable. Yes, he is speaking for the extreme, right-wing faction of conservatives who have remained pretty much on the sidelines. Until now. With Trump as their leader they are now publicly owning up to all the prejudices they have harbored all their lives…dating back generations.
Trump and others who are fanning the fiery flames of prejudice…in all of its forms…care not for the health and well-being of America and its relevance to the rest of the world. They are isolationists who think only of themselves and those near and dear to them. They’d just as soon declare war first, and figure out who the innocents among the dead are afterwards. If they even care.
If the Republicans offer Trump up as their presidential candidate…
…they will lose…big time!
I think Trump has pretty much closed the door to the Oval Office for himself. He’s alienated so many people he’s shot himself in the foot. I remember all the other candidates who have run and had extreme views. I think when voting time comes, voters will shy away from anyone with views that extreme. They’ve done it in the past. Good piece, Hugmamma. 🙂 — Suzanne
Trump appeals to a certain segment of the population. Sadly, they’re usually folks who don’t venture outside their own “bubbles.” Instead they get their views of the outside world from others, mostly blithering idiots who like to hear the sound of their own voices…including Rush Limbaugh and John Beck. What’s disconcerting is the constant media reporting that Trump is ahead in the polls. They fail to include the wider majority of Americans, instead focusing only upon Republicans, specifically those already enamored of Trump. I’d sure like to know how the heck those polls are conducted and who the target audiences are.
