How does one write about Donald Trump? It’s not easy. His entire existence is through the looking glass absurd. It would almost be better to communicate in some kind of primitive, animalistic way than mere language will allow. Someone asks you what you think of Trump and you respond by pissing into a dumpster fire. He’s like an orangutan crossed with a speed freak. Yet somehow he is not only one step from the White House, but in a close race!
On one hand I get it. When there is a car accident, one can’t help but rubberneck, even if it’s not the moral thing to do. But if one chooses to think, rather than give into their lizard brain, they might realize having such a strange mutant in the White House is probably not good for human survival.
There is a certain breed of people that will do it because they hate Hillary. I myself can neither understand the intense passion or hatred directed towards her. To me it seems like she is pretty centrist. I know some people that know her and they claim she is a wonderful person. I surely hope so. I definitely think she honestly cares about people.
That’s a pretty simplistic overview of Clinton, but I don’t really want to write about her today. This isn’t a liberal or conservative thing. I’m not even convinced Donald Trump is that conservative. I think it’s mostly a con. Anytime he talks about the Bible I have to laugh. I can’t help but feel that if the path to the nomination could be gotten by him praising Muslims, he would be parading the Koran around.
He is first and foremost a supreme narcissist. And in pursuit of stroking his own ego, he has said and done and endless amount of questionable things. Attacking anyone one that challenges him, and many that haven’t; These include Mexicans, pastors, the disabled, Democrats, Republicans, etc. But you know all of this.
Look, I am just begging any of you that might even be thinking of voting for him, not to. Donald Trump will turn our country into a joke inside of a nightmare. Even if you don’t love Clinton, even if you are one of those calling her a criminal or worse, you will survive her! Our country has proven it can already survive eight years of a Clinton presidency. Do you really want to see what happens in foreign diplomacy if we were to hand over the keys to Trump? This is a man without dignity, without restraint.
For any of you that don’t want to see Trump win, take a look at the polls. You must play your part in getting your friends, family, or whoever else you can muster up, out to the polls in November. The world will thank you. This is not the time to disengage from politics.
George Carlin once said, “When you are born you get a ticket to the freak show. When you’re an American you get a front row seat.” Dear god, those words often seem true to me. However, I have no wish to be in the tent when it’s burning down. Trump is something we haven’t seen before. I get it that some of you are struggling and feel that our leaders have given you a raw deal. I’m struggling too. There is a lot going on in this country that is making me ill. But this buffoon is not the one that is going to fix it. It is morally wrong to future generations to put Trump in the White House. Don’t make us look like all-time clowns in the history books. Admit it, before he ran for president, you were laughing at him too. Let’s laugh at him again in November, arm in arm as fellow countrymen. Then we can go back to our respective sides slinging shit across the zoo at each other. But for one moment we will have all done something great, together.
