It's become a different question

For the last year we've been discussing whether or not Trump could or should be President.  Events of the last couple days have made that question moot.  They have made any doubt about Mrs. Clinton's abilities or judgement irrelevant.

The question now is this: Would want/let your daughter, wife or any woman you know to be alone in a room with this man?


If this came as a surprise to anyone, they've not been paying attention.  This is the guy that so many have said "I like that he speaks his mind." or "He's not PC, I like that."  Well, you got your guy. In spades.  

Interestingly, there are those out there, apparently not just a few, approve of his actions and words. Perhaps they think it opens the door for them to act the same, it unleashes the little spiders in their brains.  

We are hearing, and will continue to hear, excuses, rationals.  None of them, not one, makes Trump an acceptable human being, let alone someone who should lead a nation. Idi Amin didn't kill as many people as Hitler, so that makes him ok?  

It makes what, at the time seemed an error, Hillary calling many of Trump's supporters 'deplorable' seem way too understated.  I'm saying that anyone who would vote for Trump now Scum. With a capital 'S'. 

I'ts interesting to see how ready this country was for one man, one demagogue, to set us back literally decades.  We were primed and ready for someone to tell us it was ok to act on our racial intolerance and hatred of women. And boy, did many jump on that bandwagon.  

By the way, this one tape of Trump acting like Trump is just the tip of the iceberg.  There are many others out there, most even worse than this, waiting their turn.

  1. I took a nap this afternoon so I can power through tonight's debate. I thought I was being a tiny bit unkind to the man when I said he was, old, fat and tired. I cannot take credit for saying the wheels are off the clown car, but, they sure are.

    1. as understated a comment as I think possible about the pig. He's all that you said, and much, much more. I'd rather had Ted Bundy as president than this loathsome individual.

  2. We have pretty awful people in England right now, and Trump is right in there with them.

    1. Hell, I'd trade him for one M. 'Iron Lady' Thatcher, were she alive. Actually, I'd trade him for her skull.

  3. "... one demagogue, to set us back literally decades." Only decades, Mike? You are a temporal conservative. I believe women could vote here by the 1920s. Excellent post!

    1. Isn't it odd, Geo, that it was just yesterday we (the US) was voting in gay marriage everywhere you look, now we're donning brown shirts and jackboots. Hell happened??

  4. Apparently my sister has posted on FB that any man or woman complaining about Trump's (clearly sexist and offensive) remarks needs to "get some balls" and stop being such a PC crybaby.

    When she says such things I almost wish she were attractive enough to be assaulted by this disgusting orange clown. But I don't want to lower myself into the gutter with them.

    Following your blog now. Enjoy the debate...if that's possible?

  5. Good post. The Cheeto Vulgarian just can not help himself. The PBS Frontline candidate profile The Choice reported that while in school Trump was known for his bawdy sexual boasting and behavior. BTW The Choice is a marvelous dive into the lives of both trump and HRC.

    Hats off to the intrepid job of Martha Radiate and Anderson Cooper. They worked to keep time limits observe, not to be bullied and to chase down an answer to the questions being posed.

    1. They did an admirable job, not easy with that jerk up there. He's more than a little unhinged, and what's weird is one doesn't have to go far to find blogs that admire and want more from him.

  6. Your last sentence gives one pause. And concern.

    1. It's pretty much old news, there are apparently several similar recordings of Trump saying the same thing. What matters is no one cares. No one. He gets a pass on this. And some blogs, visible from a link from here, like it. Applaud it, say it echo's their own views.
      Concern is warranted. It is all around us.

    1. I wonder if it's fast enough, or why they didn't jump earlier.

  8. My huge concern is that USian politics have come to this dog fight? I don't watch, I find I have to brush off the slime too fast and too often. A mass hypnosis has taken place and it's, seriously, catastrophic. And infantile.
