Unfit to Lead
This post is dedicated to Molly Ivins.
What would you call someone who has:
* Mocked various racial groups for their customs or color?
* Called for the wholesale deportation of people?
* Is presently involved in a trial for financial fraud?
* Cheated thousands of people out of money?
* Egged on his supporters by telling them to beat up those who oppose him, and then stood by while they did so?
* Mocked veterans?
* Branded women as nothing more than gold-diggers and whores?
A Republican nominee for the Presidency: Donald Trump.
Never in American history has there ever been such a hateful, mendacious, shallow, immature, egotistical misogynist to aspire to one of the most powerful positions in the world:
President of the United States.
He’s being sued for fraud in NY State. He’s been dumped by his business partners in the UAE for his outright racism on Muslims. He’s been called out on his extremism and racism by others in his own party, as well as a slew of independent people.
He’s encouraged violence and assault during his rallies. He’s stated that he’d like to punch people’s lights out, himself.
No, he’s not quite Hitler-but he’s has only encouraged the comparisons by refusing to disavow the KKK and he’s been caught out on the lie that he didn’t personally know David Duke.
In short, he’s a liar, bully, cheat, and racist.
Someone we do not need leading this country in the 21st century.
He has no scruples, morals, ethics or conscience. He is a coward and a bully disguised as a entrepreneur who made his fortune the hard way, (except that daddy supported him during his rise..), and a self-proclaimed ‘deal-maker’.
The only deals he’s ever made in his life are for him alone. Nobody else. This is the very last person who should sit in the Oval Office. He hosted “The Apprentice” and very heartily enjoyed saying those two words to unwitting people: “You’re fired!” What a role model for ethical business he is!
He has no shame or contrition for what he’s said in public. No matter how crude, or rude, he’s not apologized for anything that others took offense at. He’s proud of his crudity. In fact during one debate, he and another candidate traded barbs about the size of their fingers, which in reality was seen for what it was: penis envy.
How loathsome this man is! He’s got no class, culture or intelligence. No sensitivity to others, no ethical or moral boundaries when it comes to his speeches. He insults with impunity and degrades with vigor.
He believes that women are merely for decoration on a man’s arm. He ought to know-he’s been married 4 times. How emotionally stable is this guy, anyway? 4 marriages? Back in the day there was a huge thing about being divorced even once-Ronald Reagan was the first President to have ever been divorced in the past, and everyone noticed.
No-this is not the man we need in the White House. We do not need the most unsavory characteristics of our country on public display. We cannot afford this kind of school-yard bully turned billionaire holding the highest position in politics and the country.
It’s time we stopped listening to him, stopped supporting him and stop supporting those who follow him, or televise him in any way.
It’s time to turn our backs on this man and his ‘message’.
We need to stand up, say no, and vote for anyone else but Donald Trump.
For all of our sakes and this country’s very existence.
We have to take this country back from the extremists who would destroy it piece by piece, exemplified by Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
Because if we don’t, there’s no turning back-we’ll have destroyed the very soul and message of our existence as a nation:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.“
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.“
