As the election here in the US draws closer, I am a little bit more afraid each and every day. I am afraid that Donald Trump will win the election and he’s proven himself, time and again, to be a misogynistic, racist, homophobic, xenophobic hellbeast. Every time you think he can’t say anything worse than what he’s already said…he says something worse.
He keeps saying he can fix things, he can make America “great” again. Honestly..I don’t believe that he can. The vitriol that continually spews from his giant flappy trout lips both angers and frightens me. Last night, when I was watching the debate, at one point he said something along the lines of “If I were president, you’d be IN JAIL.” to Hilary with such a smug, self important, satisfied, “I’ll put you in your place, WOMAN.” look on his face I wanted to punch him in the throat, shove a flaming pineapple up his posterior and throw up all at the same time.
He stated, straight out of the gate, that his grabbing a woman by her vagina and kissing her whether or not she wanted to be kissed statement from a decade or so ago was just “locker room talk”. As if that makes it OK…because it totally doesn’t.
He also admitted to Paul Ryan that if he gets elected, he’s gonna cut Social Security, even though while he’s been campaigning, he’s said the exact opposite.
“There has to be some form of punishment…you go back to a position like they had where they would perhaps go to illegal places, but we have to ban it.” –Donald Trump on women who have abortions, MSNBC interview, March 30, 2016
That right there..made me sick. Because I support a woman’s right to choose..and if she chooses abortion, she should be able to have one done like ANY OTHER MEDICAL PROCEDURE. She should be able to be taken care of in a safe, clean environment with a competent doctor. She shouldn’t have to have her abortion done in some back alley by a minimally (or worse yet, untrained) doctor or midwife with a dirty knife and a folding table.
I found a tweet where he’d quoted a Fascist dictator (Mussolini, I believe) about how it’s better to live one day as a lion than one hundred as a sheep.
He incites…and outright condones..violence at his rallies because he gets off on hearing people scream and call his name.
There’s a name for a person like him..Attention Whore. Because that’s what he is. The second the focus is not on him, he starts to pout like a little baby and try to get the attention, all the focus in the room, back on him. It’s sickening and childish and just plain ol’ stupid.
I really hope he doesn’t get elected president. Because this country will go backwards if he does. And we need to boldly go forwards…not in bloody reverse.
