That is what Gov. Bush said of Donald Trump and his latest rantings, that he is “unhinged.” I am inclined to agree, especially as Donald is threatening to sue Ted Cruz for his “dishonest” ads pointing out what Donald has said and done in the not-so-distant past, all while slandering and assassinating Cruz’s character with his own claims of “unhinged” when it comes to Cruz, adding “liar” to that attack.
Now, Trump is threatening to go third party – AGAIN. I know, what a shock, right? Gee, who could have seen THAT coming? Just about everyone who acknowledges what an incredible liar he is, saying whatever pops into his head at the time, even if it is the antithesis of what he said the day before. And yet, Trump continues to enjoy a good deal of support, and WAY too much air time. I can barely stand to watch Fox News, or even Fox Business Network. If they aren’t having Trump on relentlessly, they have a family member. UGH.
Let’s put it this way – I am watching a whole lot more Hallmark Channel these days than the news. Well, what passes for news now, which is basically the Trump show. I am so sick of him, so sick of hearing about him, so sick of his base persona, his ridicule of others, his unceasing attacks/character assassinations, his petulance, his rudeness, his pettiness, I can barely stand it.
But even worse is what the support of Trump, and Sanders, says about where our country is. I know people are angry, but grow the hell up and figure out how to fix the problems instead of going with scorched earth-style candidates. Here we actually had the chance to elect some really decent, good, hard-working people, who care first about the country, not their own egos. Instead, we get The Donald And The Bern. We have serious issues facing this nation, and the world. We need serious people to deal with these issues, not a buffoon or a Socialist wanting to spend everyone else’s money and grow the government even larger.
I admit, I am feeling a bit down and disturbed by what I am seeing in this country. I am disturbed to see friends whom I considered reasonable and rational throwing their support to Trump because they are angry, and despite all evidence to the contrary, pick him. Heck, I have lost someone I considered a dear friend because she is a Trump supporter and cut me out of her life. She was one who used to decry and denounce Obots for their personality-driven cult-like following of Obama, and now, she is supporting someone who is nothing more than a personality with no real substance to him other than his massive ego.
And I am sick of the media insisting that if Trump wins SC, he is essentially the Nominee. Gee, I don’t remember Newt Gingrich being the nominee when HE won SC. Yet, this is the meme the media is pushing constantly, and I am just so sick and tired of it all, I could scream.
I am worried about this nation. I mean, seriously worried about this nation. I worry about a citizenry that, faced with good, decent, proven leaders, choose a reality star who talks crassly, who is rude, sexist/misogynistic, egotistical, loud mouthed, and a flip-flopper on a major level. That is on the Republican side. On the Democratic side, that the majority of people are picking a Democratic Socialist, hoping he will be a bit more to the middle once he is elected as one Democratic woman strategist stated this morning on Maria Bartiromo’s show. Seriously?? You vote for someone trusting they don’t mean what they say?? Really?
What the hell is WRONG WITH PEOPLE?!
Sorry, I know this is a bit of a downer, but after the deplorable behavior of Trump this past weekend, I had yet another friend throw his support to Trump, coming out of the shadows to announce it on Facebook. Again, someone I thought was a smart, reasonable, rational person. I simply cannot wrap my head around this move toward a man who is such a liar and buffoon, someone who is a liberal in just about every way, something he vocalized quite loudly and rudely just Saturday night, joining the ranks of Code Pink and Michael Moore in his attacks. Yet, Republicans are declaring he’s their guy to take over the White House from another Democrat whom they claimed to detest.
I have to hope, and pray, that the adults in the room will persevere, that we will get someone in the White House with the temperament, abilities, and intellect to rectify the very serious damage Obama has done to the economy, to any semblance of Immigration laws, to race relations, and more. That is not Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders, not by a long shot.
We must not surrender our nation to either of these men, or Hillary Clinton, for that matter But like Trump, the main candidate the media is pushing is Sanders. All of a sudden, they are all upset about the Superdelegates throwing their support behind Clinton when they took great delight and glee when the very same Superdelegates threw their support behind the untested, unvetted, Barack Obama. Just more hypocrisy from the media as they work very hard to determine the outcome of this election. Sadly, too many people are allowing them to do so. We cannot surrender to them, either.
That’s enough of a rant from me for today.
This is an Open Thread.
