Okay, now I’m upset. Angry, even. Donald Trump’s obvious disdain for women is unacceptable for some schnook on the street, but for a presidential candidate, and his party’s front runner for cryin’ out loud, it is absolutely inexcusable – a deal breaker, in my opinion.
In Wednesday’s issue of Rolling Stone, Trump is reported to have said:
Look at that face!” [Trump] cries [at Carly Fiorina’s image on the television]. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!” The laughter [of Trump’s staff] grows halting and faint behind him. “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
Trump hasn’t denied making these statements. He instead insists he was referring to Fiorina’s “persona”. Yeah, right! But, you know what? I don’t care what he meant. The fact is he made these comments – and recently, too, about another human being, a candidate for the presidency, nonetheless. This vile creature has no respect for women, and disparages and denigrates them merely because they have the audacity to challenge him. This guy is a disgusting human being. A bully. A piece of #%^*. And I’ve had it.
To those of you actually considering supporting Trump, I say the following: I know how angry you are. I am angry, too. You have a right to be angry about a whole lot of things. This country has been heading in several painfully wrong directions for years and you love America. And you want to see her return to past glory. But don’t latch on to this grotesque individual simply because he isn’t afraid to fling vitriol, attack his enemies, and tell it like he sees it. Are you kidding me? This is what you’re looking for in a President?
We are the party of Ronald Reagan. Some used to even call us the party of Abraham Lincoln – the Great Emancipator. And now we’re seriously considering nominating someone who has no love for America, never has. I don’t care what he says now that he’s running.
Does he really go around the world for decades calling America a laughing stock and really expect us to believe he loves this country? Perhaps.
I am sick. And you should be, too.
