Ambivalence & Coming Off The Fence

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Comments like the one below, are popping up all over:

This whole thing has pretty much taken me off the fence of deciding whether to vote 3rd party or stay home. Seeing the incredible push by all of the DC power-brokers to have Trump withdraw over this has convinced me that it’s not an act. TPTB really are scared of him and desperately want Hillary to win.

That’s good enough to convince me to vote for Trump. I wonder if any others like me who didn’t really buy the hype had a similar reaction. I would guess yes.

Even as the latest Politico poll (not friendly to Republicans, Politico) shows that Republicans are not only unsurprised, but largely ambivalent about Donald Trump’s crude statements about having his way with women:


The fact of the matter here is quite simple: no one was surprised that Donald Trump acts like an asshole because Donald Trump is an asshole. That’s why people voted for him. He’s a belligerent, crass caricature of what the American public largely expects famous billionaire’s to be. More importantly, he isn’t a politician. He is a complete departure from the polished turd politicos we have ALL come to detest. Not being a polished-turd politico is a winning strategy (sic) in this climate. (see Brexit, Greece, 2014 election, ’12, ’10, ’08, et al, etc)

At the end of the day, people are sick of politicians lying to them. DJT is a scumbag, but he’s not a politician.

Here are a few (of the many) reasons people have decided to stop supporting Donald Trump:

Let’s face it. Enough is enough!

First of all, he has racist supporters.

His mentor was a former KKK grand-wizard. When he passed, Trump honored him with a filmed tribute.

Another one of his mentors was a famous eugenicist who sought to rid the world of any nationality that isn’t white. He even received an award in that mentor’s honor, proclaiming that he admired their “vision.”

His multiple ties to the witch hunt to dispel President Obama’s American heritage. Multiple ties.

The fact that he appropriated the spending of $20,000 for access to a white-only golf course.

When speaking to a crowd of black people, he started mocking their accents.

He told a Black Lives Matter supporter that he would “talk only to white people.”

Donald Trump has likened people of urban culture to dogs.

He calls women that have upset his personal relationships “trailer trash.”

Up until three years ago, he was anti-gay and strongly opposed gay marriage.

Extending upon being anti-gay, he has also accepted campaign contributions from donors that strongly oppose the LGBT community.

His closest aide strongly opposed female equality up until recently.

In 2010, Haiti had an earthquake. Donald Trump went down there and promptly steered all of the reconstruction bids to his businesses friends. Those friends then under-delivered, pocketed the difference, and left Haiti further in debt.

During the recent primary race, it was revealed that sources behind Donald Trump conspired to improperly ensure his party nomination.

Donald Trump is willing to wage a war against Russia based on speculation.

He has laughed about the war killings of foreign dignitaries.

Trump joked about using government resources to murder someone who doesn’t favor him.

During a speech to businessmen and businesswomen, Trump proclaimed, “I’m kind of far removed from the struggles of the middle class.”

Multiple women claim that he’s tried to silence them when they were assaulted, raped, and abused.

He also helped the rapist of a 12 year old girl get out of jail on reduced sentencing, later laughing about it during a recorded interview.

He ignores the fact that people extremely close to him have made frequent visits to a place known as ‘Orgy Island,’ owned by a convicted pedophile.

Donald Trump categorically lied to the FBI.

Donald Trump compromised national security by revealing government secrets to his Wall St. friends, who paid him for them.

He also instigated the suicide of one of his closest aides.

People have died because of Donald Trump’s professional incompetence. 

Just kidding. This was all Hillary Clinton. That is why it will be Trump in 2016.
