After almost a year of this 2016 presidential campaign, the endless Trump theatrics and bogus allegations, replete with vile, petty name-calling and endless spin (lying) makes me disgusted not only with Trump, but also with his big name enablers. I lost respect for many public figures in the process, especially Rudy Giuliani, who could go on national TV and proclaim that Trump behaves gentlemanly and is a gentleman. That level of bold-faced lying for political purposes rests as something I expect from Hillary Clinton, not from Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor. The Trump demolition of the GOP continues and rather than beat a dead horse and repeat the same mantra daily, I’m working on some other craft projects and also some other topics to write about – hence, not as frequent blog posts.
My fervent hope is that both Hillary and Trump get fired – she to face charges and he as a total lying, conniving fraud, but of course, due to the state of America and the worship of celebrity, my hope rests as, at best, a forlorn one. She will not be held to account for jeopardizing national security on an epic scale and Trump, a TV clown act, who definitely does not possess the integrity, intellectual heft, work ethic or frankly good manners to be President, just might insult his way into the White House.
How smart people can excuse his petty stream of “Little Marco”, “Lyin’ Ted”, Megyn bleeding out of her wherever and Carly’s ugly face taunts, well, I don’t get it. Top that with the fact that the man does not hire the best people, he doesn’t bother to do his homework, he’s corrupt and worse than that he corrupts those who follow him. They begin to believe his lies and convoluted excuses and worse repeat them. No one stole his delegates – he was too lazy, too cheap and most of all believed he could ride free media buzz all the way to the nomination, so he didn’t bother with setting up real state campaign operations.
Trump’s latest RNC delegate rants repeat the same Trump pattern – he didn’t bother to prepare for debates and when he ended up looking like an ignorant ass – he walked away from the debates. However, for months, his enablers bragged that he was different, he didn’t need to know details or prepare, as he would hire the best people, and he even set out mocking Carly Fiorina for her obvious dedicated study and preparation as a negative – boring even. Heck, I caught myself thinking she does sound very prepared as if that was a negative, until I realized Trump was sucking me into his amoral relativistic thinking – he does that to people. He will find a little grain of truth and use it to sell a whole truckload of lies and bullshit. He also connives people into becoming willing participants in his vile attacks and smear campaigns, as they repeat his sleazy dirt. Her studying demonstrated she was worthy of the job she was seeking and Trump’s refusal to follow the rules or put any effort into policy research shows he is UNFIT for the job. He perverts, not only the truth, but people’s moral compass, as he sells you on his entitlement, due to he is rich (successful).
Now, he wants the RNC to ditch all the rules to accommodate him, all because of his own lack of planning and cheapskate campaign tactics have left him without viable state grassroots organization. His free ride with mass media collusion is about to end and he’s now having to pay his way, which he is whining about non-stop. The man is a fraud and worse than that, he corrupts everyone who buys into his delusional conspiracy victim-hood tripe. One can only wonder how he will fare, if he does bare-knuckle his way to the GOP nomination. The media sits poised to turn on him and will unleash the Clinton attack machine. Assuredly, they want Trump to burn down the GOP tent, as they have given Trump billions of dollars of free air time, to that end. However, their fork-tongued, flame-throwing swamp monster, Drumpfzilla, seems to have acquired land legs and he’s as adept at “scorched earth” as the Witch of Chappaqua. The blaze from 2016 may be one for the record books, but let’s hope that America is still left standing and neither of these two vile creatures ends up in the Oval Office!
