They’re calling it the American Brexit.
Donald Trump is president-elect and it’s official: ignorance, hatred, and bigotry are the fuel that runs the United States.
And don’t forget deceit. To people who listened to Trump’s year of verbal diarrhea and thought it sounded great, yet lied to pollsters because they were ashamed to admit it, I say, just wait. Your payback is coming. Very soon.
You can’t hand a demented monster absolute power, shored up by BOTH houses of Congress, and expect rainbows and roses.
Trump managed to deliver a coherent, moderately dignified, and inclusive acceptance speech, but we can count the days before he reverts to type. He’s never been able to sustain sanity.
In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if he gloats and announces today that he was being sarcastic.
For a first lady, we’ve got a piece of Slovenian arm candy whose website misrepresented her level of education. In researching her immigration history (which Trump promised to provide but never did), the AP uncovered that she earned $20,000 in seven weeks, modeling in the U.S. before she was legally allowed to. She stole jobs from American models.
Melania announced that her focus will be cyber-bullying. Let’s hope she starts by closing her husband’s Twitter account.
What’s most galling about this revolting development is that Hillary may have won the popular vote.
After Trump has repeatedly bashed Mexicans and all Hispanics, Muslims, blacks, the military, women, and many others, you have to be a real fool to believe he’ll work in anyone’s best interests but his own.
One election won’t turn a profane, ignorant, narcissistic buffoon into a statesman overnight.
I’m going to go curl into a fetal position and cry now. This feels so much more ominous than the Bush-Cheney victories. Sure, that pair started wars, but they had some experience governing and didn’t go around pissing in everybody’s face with personal insults while they did it.
