column off the wall
Iwas dreading the arrival of the circus.
The thought of having to listen for
months on end to a score of shallow
Presidential Hopefuls made me shudder.
Fortunately somebody is throwing a much-
needed monkey wrench into the process.
Donald Trump has brought to town a
I am a staunch Democrat. My “flavorite”
politician of the month is Bernie Sanders. As
much as I loved Bill, I don't like Hillary, but I
am gaga over The Don. The publisher of this
newspaper just wrote a scathing misguided
editorial trashing him, sadly missing the
First — We should all be grateful to
Trump. He has been saying all the things
that people think but are afraid to utter.
When was the last time, in a presidential
debate, you heard a candidate referring to
other politicians as idiots? Never yet I say it
Second — The Don is the epitome of
America. Arrogant, rich and ruthless:
The DNA of our country. Therefore we
should love him. He is capitalism at its
best. A billionaire who has used existing
laws to proudly bankrupt a score of his
enterprises, destroying lives and businesses
in the process deserves the cover of Forbes
magazine. And now that he has made money
the American way he doesn't have to suck
up to any Super PAC and can say and do
exactly what he wants. He is entitled to buy
the Presidency on his terms. I
respect that. How refreshing.
Third — He is showing
us how low the bar of our
political system has sunken.
Are these the best people
this country can produce?
If I was any of the other
16 pretenders I would be
ashamed and embarrassed,
as a governor or a senator, to
see my approval rating lower
than someone who has never
held state or local office and
whose claim to fame is the
phrase “You’re Fired."
I would quit and run for
the woods, let alone the
Presidency, never to be seen again. But they
have no shame and no backbone. They are
Yes they're a bunch of mumbling idiots
and /or self centered spoiled brats, and
positively irritating. It took a brash, not
even well articulated celebrity, to show us
what a pathetic bunch swims in the cesspool
of our political world. And they want to run
the country? Puh-leeze.
Fourth — He is not in
favor of gay marriage? I
am opposed to straight
marriage, so what? There
is nothing we can do; it is
the law of the land. Let's
also drop the misogynist
Tea- Baggers, are phonies.
They don’t give a damn
about women, just look at
the Planned Parenthood
controversy. They have a
condition. It makes me sick
watching them pretending
to be outraged by Trump's
off the cuff remarks directed
at Megyn Kelly. In fact, if
she was honest, Kelly should be kissing The
Don's ring. Until a few weeks ago she was
an egregious certified unknown employed
by Foxymoron News, the feces throwing
network, now she is a nationwide celebrity.
She owes Trump a debt of eternal gratitude.
Of course she will play the “offended"
woman's card but deep down she is gloating
and can't believe her good fortune.
Fifth — Republicans feign shock at
Trump's comments on immigration. What?
Isn't this is the party that has little patience
with immigrants, anybody with accents,
people from NY/NJ, anyone on welfare,
unemployed, and think the homeless should
be rounded up and shipped to Guantanamo?
Should we settle for the bullshit
politicians have been feeding us daily or
should we go with the politically incorrect
blasts? I am tired of lies. I prefer the
outrageous, and at times incoherent, stream
of consciousness utterances of Trump. He is
shaking everybody up.
Imagine: As President he would tell
Angela Merkel, Prime Minister of Germany,
to stop meddling in other European
countries affairs when she is hormonal or
tell North Korea's bad boy Kim Jong-un to
get a better hair cut and forget about the
bomb. But most of all I would love to hear
him tell our useless Congress to go and stuff
it where the sun don't shine. What a novelty,
finally someone with the guts to take those
Run Donald Run. Don't stop. You are my

Donald Trump speaks to the
media at a Lincoln Day event

us how low
