It never ceases to amaze me how someone can be a brilliant surgeon and still have a brain the size of a mustard seed. Ben Carson’s viewpoints regarding the LGBT community, for example, are laughable: “Being gay is a choice,” he said, in a recent interview. “Why else would inmates enter a prison straight and come out gay?” Or his disrespectful words regarding someone’s religious beliefs making them ineligible to run for the presidency. Incidentally, in the picture above, doesn’t Ben Carson look like a model in a J.C. Penney’s ad? Lastly, whenever the man speaks, I’m often unconscious within three seconds. I imagine before Doctor Carson operated on his patients, he only had to speak to them for several seconds and the anesthesiologist could take the day off.
Donald Trump the leader of the free world ? Trump couldn’t lead a puppy to a hamburger. He’s a 21st century snake-oil salesman selling fear and widespread panic. He’s an example of what motivational speaker Wayne Dyer calls FEAR: False Evidence Appearing Real. His recurring words are always dark narratives regarding America’s shortcomings; however, when questioned, he never has any solutions concerning our domestic problems and complicated global conundrums. “I’m a business man,” he keeps repeating. “I’ll run this country like a business.” Trump went bankrupt four times. This self-made man was given hundreds of millions by his father. Trump talks about making this country great again. The only way this country could get any better would be if men like Donald Trump climbed aboard the next space shuttle to Pluto..
For a time in Atlantic City, the huge letters above TRUMP PLAZA burned brightly. But as time marched on, one towering letter in particular began to fade. Finally, the floodlight displaying the letter “T” completely burned out. From a distance, anyone viewing the casino was presented with RUMP PLAZA. Donald Trump’s pretend run for the presidency isn’t all that different from the letters atop the casino. The higher the ape climbs, the more his ugly side is revealed. Mr. Trump’s fear mongering, blatant lies, and intimidation tactics will continue to work until the bully is confronted by his victims and metaphorically punched in the nose. By not standing up to the quintessential ugly American, we’re fueling the real-estate Mogul’s mean-spirited race-baiting techniques. Across the Continental Divide, intelligent reporters and journalists should be looking Donald Trump in the face and repeating the words spoken by Joseph Welch during the communist witch-hunt in the 1950’s. In defense of a junior attorney accused by Senator McCarthy of being affiliated with the communist party, the former chief of counsel for the United States Army and partner at a prestigious Boston law firm, said, “Until this moment, Senator, I have never gauged your cruelty or your recklessness. Have you no sense of decency, sir?” Donald Trump has no sense of decency, civility, and morality. He calls immigrants rapists and murderers, dismisses war heroes like so much trash and demeans women at every turn. He is not only a danger to our American way of life, but rather a danger to freedom-loving people around the globe.
