Here’s the question I have for Trump: If you aren’t prepared to accept the results of the election, why are you running? Are you really so childish and immature that you are willing to undermine our democracy to salve your wounded pride? Of course you are. Obeying rules, that’s for other people, not for billionaire Reality TV stars, right?
To those evangelical preachers who have been telling their congregations to vote for Trump: What possible excuse can you make for supporting a man who believes he’s entitled to molest women? Not only has he bragged about it, he’s also bragged about all sorts of lewd behavior. Nearly a dozen women have come forward to tell their own stories of how he assaulted them. When asked if he ever asked God for forgiveness, he claimed he didn’t need to because he never did anything wrong. I’m not particularly religious, but even I have a better understanding of Christianity than this candidate that you are holding up to your followers as a “godly man.” This “godly” man created Trump University, an organization that preyed upon the desperation created by the 2008 financial crisis. He refuses to pay contractors that he believes can’t afford to sue him.
For all of you who think Trump will “Shake Things Up” and create as system that is fairer than the one that has taken advantage of you all your life: It’s billionaires like Trump who profit from that system. Trump has never done anything that goes against his own interest, what makes you think he’ll change now?
For those who think they know Trump because they watched his TV show: On Apprentice, Trump had a whole production staff that could edit and rearrange things so that it looked like Trump was making good decisions. Reality TV isn’t reality, it’s fiction – deception – designed only to entertain you. It’s a lot harder to pull that kind of thing off in the real world. Would you let a TV doctor operate on you?
For those who won’t vote for Hillary because they “just don’t trust her”: Don’t you realize you’ve been played by the GOP? They’ve been trash talking Hillary Clinton since she served on the Watergate investigation. They’ve wasted hundreds of millions of your tax dollars investigating Hillary Clinton. If there was anything to discover, you’d think someone would have discovered it by now. She’s been working to help other people her whole life. For those who care about that kind of thing, she seems to be a relatively observant Christian. She’s careful and remains composed even when under full-throated attack from a jerk like Trump. Kind of like the way a president should be.
For everyone who’s frustrated with this election: Send a message that the kind of nastiness Donald Trump has subjected us to has no upside. Make sure you vote. Let’s give Donald a complete and resounding defeat that is so clear and unambiguous that not even he can find a way to claim it was rigged. (Though I’m sure he still will.)
