Margaret, the problem I have with Donald Trump is that he actually believes his shit doesn’t stink. And the problem I have with his supporters is that they are pretending nobody just stunk up the bathroom. Honey, have you seen these lunatics that keep going on TV to either defend or otherwise try to make sense out of the things he says? I have to wonder if they they can still look at themselves in the mirror these days. Of course, there’s a good chance they no longer have a reflection.
Now they are celebrating that Mike Pence can walk and chew gum at the same time. Bless his heart but Pence was so tied in knots that I’m pretty sure he no longer knows whether to check his ass or scratch his watch at this point. He spent the whole night claiming that Donald Trump didn’t say what we all have heard him say. If we learned anything at all from that debate it’s that Tim Kaine really likes being Hillary’s running mate and Mike Pence has never met Donald Trump.
Donald is a dying breed, that one. He actually believes that a woman’s only value is her looks. He comes from that fading era when women stayed at home to have kids and clean house and once our figure was gone, we were at the mercy of a forgiving husband as to whether to keep us or not. Trump really believes this bullshit about women. When Hillary called him out about his insults, he didn’t say it was a poor choice of words or that he had regrets. He said, in a Presidential debate, that Rosie was mean and she deserved it… and then he tweeted like a teenager all night that Miss Universe had indeed gotten fat.
Trump actually believes that all blacks live in one neighborhood in every town and they wake up each morning to gun shots. According to Trump, they all live in hell and the only thing that is going to make it better is more police and more jails. I am not making this up. His spokespeople can go on the news all day long and say what he really meant but that doesn’t change what he actually said. For crying out loud, we don’t need interpreters. We have the Internet. As my son says all the time – Google it.
He truly believes that all Muslims – American citizens or not – should be forced to register with the government so they can be put under surveillance. He has implied that they really shouldn’t be allowed to be here at all. And his solution for imigration – for a country of immigrants – is a huge wall that would forever be a scar disfiguring our otherwise great country. No wait. I should have just said “our country” because according to Donald Trump we are not a great country anymore.
Trump thinks Putin is a great leader because he has great control over his country. Yep. He said that. Nevermind that Putin is a dictator, am I the only one worried that Donald thinks the President of the United States is supposed to control us? Good Lord but what world does that man live in? And does he really think his supporters want to be controlled? They don’t even like being told to use seat belts or that President Obama isn’t a Muslim.
But back to the debate… Let’s not forget that Mike Pence was supposed to be defending Trump… defending a man who made fun of a disabled person. The reporter Trump mimicked has a disability that limits the use of his arms and restricts his joints. It’s called arthrogryposis and Trump actually mocked and made fun of his appearance in front of a crowd of supporters at one of his hillbilly rallies. Let me repeat that. Donald Trump, while running for President, made fun of a disabled person by mocking the way he looks. And Donald didn’t just say it, he said it and acted it out in front of television cameras. It’s no wonder Pence didn’t attempt to defend his running mate. How does anyone continue to support this man?
But seriously, what did we really just learn? We learned that even Mike Pence can’t get through a debate without offending an entire ethnic group. I’m not sure what that Mexican thing was, but I am for damn sure Donald Trump actually said:
“They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.“
He doesn’t know if any of them are good people. He just assumes some might be. How very open minded of him. Was that the Mexican thing Senator Kaine whipped out, Govenor Pence?
And did anyone else catch Mike’s defense that Hillary is worse because she insulted half of Trump’s supporters and Donald only insulted one Miss Universe. Uhmm, let’s do the math:
Half of Trumps’s supporters is about 7 million (based on primary voters) or if we believe current polls it could be 25 million Americans who are about to vote for him .
To Pence’s credit, that is indeed a lot of people to have insulted. To her credit, Clinton has said she was wrong to have said it and regretted it. But let’s look at Trump’s ever growing talley:
US Generals – 652
African Americans – 37 million
Population of Mexico – 120 million
Disabled people worldwide – 1 billion
Muslims – 1.6 billion
Women (all weights) – 3.5 billion
To date, Trump has issued no apologies. In fact, while Pence was declaring that Clinton ran a campaign of insults, Trump was tweeting insults not about what Kaine said but about the way Kaine looked.
We also learned that Mike Pence believes his religious beliefs should be turned into law so that women can’t make their own religious decisions. And we learned that Mike Pence is clueless as to how many children are still waiting in foster care to be adopted (over 400,000) or that nearly 23,000 thousand kids age out of foster care every year in the United States alone.
If we really have become a country where it doesn’t matter what you say as long as you look good while saying it, then we might deserve what we get. My gut tells me it’s just the media keeping us intested for the sake of ratings. At least I hope it is.
Mike Pence might have indeed won the debate by successfully avoiding the questions. But Tim Kaine was the only one that night who got to leave with his dignity still intact. I mean it. Really.
