Less than three weeks before the election, and the Donald Trump story keeps rolling on—on toward an catastrophic conclusion. Previously I aimed this series of posts at the humor surrounding a narcissistic businessman vying for a job that requires character. Now I’m leaving the high road and will be calling things as they are.
As a reminder, self-obsessed billionaire Donald Trump earlier snatched the campaign torch from the Republican Party by scooping up conservative America’s low-hanging fruit. Full disclosure: it’s something I proclaimed over a year ago could not be done. I was wrong! Wrong I was, though it is becoming clear by the hour that more than a personal train wreck is headed our way.
It ceases to be funny. Candidate Donald Trump has managed to bring upper echelon American politics to its lowest level in my memory and in the memories of many others who have spoken. Central is a duplicity unparalleled.
I did not create the meme pasted above, but it exemplifies the concerns of straight-thinking people. We once had a president who sponsored criminal transgressions against the political opposition and then came forward to deny his guilt. Now we have a candidate bent on wrecking his own party’s brand by demeaning significant segments of society, all the while proclaiming his purity. A recent item by Nina Bahadur, a woman writing for the Huffington Post, paints the picture of a person with little true regard for women. One comment in particular:
“You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” — from an interview with Esquire, 1991
Bahadur cites an additional 17 items that demonstrate the inner Trump. His denials fly in the face of a hurricane of rebuttal.
Meanwhile, right on schedule, Donald Trump’s journey to self destruction continues, much as I predicted over a year ago. In conclusion, I will post the signature banner for this series:
A warning for those who chance to meet a wild Trump coming home late at night, past a graveyard, all alone in a storm: Don’t bump the Trump. [With apologies to Shel Silverstein.]
Enjoying my excursion into schadenfreude, I have this to say. Thank you, Mr. Trump. It’s the nicest thing anybody’s ever done for me.Thank you very, very, very much!
Yeah, it’s game on. We are going to have more fun between now and November. We can be assured Donald Trump will never fail to entertain us.
