The Trump Frenzy

I am disturbed about the possibility of Donald Trump becoming president. He is vile, racist & sexist, with no respect for the working class. I thought it was a joke 6 months ago and we all laughed and pointed at him, like the clown he is. But it's no joke people.

People are going to his rallies and he's winning in the GOP polls and OH.MY.GOD.  I work with people and I have students and I have FRIENDS that will vote for him because he's going to make America great again and he says what he thinks.  That's exactly what Charles Manson promised too. That's what mental, narcissistic people say.  1939 in Germany springs to mind.

It makes me feel really sad and also flabbergasted when I see pictures of these people at rallies and I think, what must their lives be like? Why are all these white people whipped up into a racist frenzy?

The good looking blond lady who's overjoyed at the front of the rally, why is she so happy to be there?  How is her life so fucked up that she has to go to a Trump rally and listen to that vitriol? What does she think he will do for her and her child. Really?

Do these people believe he cares for them? He publicly ridicules them and calls them stupid.
Do they think he knows how hard they have it? He doesn't give a shit how hard they have it.
Do they believe he will help them? He won't. He seriously doesn't care about them.

So why are they going to his rallies? I completely understand why a person who votes Republican will vote for him no matter what. They aren't voting for HIM, they are voting for their political party.

What I don't understand, what I find vile and upsetting, is that people would vote for him because they agree with him. That they would go to a rally and be whipped up into a racist and angry frenzy, which is happening. It's happening!!! America is still unbelievably, incredibly racist.

Anyone who votes for that bigot, is also a bigot.

What I don't understand is that I do not know one. single. person., even among politically very conservative friends, who supports him or plans to vote for him. NO ONE. So WHO IS VOTING FOR HIM?!?!?!?!? I don't get it? Unless people are not willing to admit that they are planning to vote for him? But unfortunately, I think his staunchest supporters are, as he calls them, "the poorly educated." The very people he will throw under the bus if, God forbid, he gets elected.

He's the Reason We Can't Have Nice Things

I say this line a lot to Craig - When the cats barf on the bed "We can never have nice things" When Ben poos on the basement car...
