OK I should start this blog by saying I was wrong about Trump. I truly was. I mean I already knew he was one of the most stupid men on this entire planet by the way he proceeded his campaign. Being a strong leader takes more than simply smearing someone else by repeating the only thing you have against them: some stupid emails, while he never ever took any responsibility for any of the wrong that he did himself, nor was he ever willing to speak about false claims he made.
The emails kept coming up, and the fact that Hillary was, apparently, not able to rapidly answer in a way that it could be set aside, made it worse. It kept following her. Like a fart that’s slightly more toxic than you expected it to be.
Meanwhile; Trump did not so much as giving an example of what he was gonna do, except for that Mexican wall. It was one of the few moments he actually mentioned WHAT he was gonna do.
He truly was and still is, the most stupid and most sexist option that was ever available. Despite the fact his daughter Ivanka Trump runs a successful business. He puts her in a chair he is supposed to sit in himself, but I have never gotten the impression he has taken any of his children seriously. Just that he puts them into important positions, so he’s sure no-one will overcross him any way. Daddy is running the business sweeties, you’re only nice decoration.
Back to why I was wrong. I’ve read the different opinions about his possible presidency. People accused him, or rather warned his voters, for the possible outcome. That’s where I went wrong. I truly thought that a) it wouldn’t happen and b) that he was intrinsicly stupid, but there weren’t that many stupid people in the USA to reflect his way of handling tricky situations.
I also forgot that America has one of the most difficult voting systems. People’s votes only count for a certain degree. It’s not actually fully a democracy. Not in my opinion, that is. In an actual full democracy, Hillary WOULD have won.
I had no idea his way of responding to a situation (Charlottesville) would wake up an apparently existing range of idiots who now feel heard, dare to come out of their shadows and dare to think they are expressing an appropriate opinion themselves.
Even when Kirk Douglas warned his fellow Americans that he had heard the same speech coming out of Trumps’ mouth, before entering the WWII, I thought: no, Trump hasn’t been THAT bad. He is amazingly stupid, yes, but not that bad.
Because at the time, Erdogan was also at it. Wanting more power. To gain some, Erdogan was telling all Turkish people around the world that they should tell on their fellow Turkish civilians who spoke bad about him.
I did know Hitler did that. It’s how Anne Frank got busted, amongst so many others.
I thought to myself: Trump is stupid, but he is not ‘pulling a Hitler’, as I’d like to express it. Erdogan was telling other countries they acted like Hitler, while being the biggest guilty one on that account himself. He still is, by the way. As long as Erdogan has anything to say in that country, I will never ever visit it voluntarily. I am truly sorry for any woman or anyone with an opinion of their own who has to live there. Erdogan doesn’t allow a different opinion than his own, keeps firing any personal on an official position, until he has all the power in the world, it seems. I did think that was ‘pulling a Hitler’. I didn’t see Trump do that, and therefor I misassumed that he was, despite being so stupid, a safer option. Safer, but still the most stupid the USA could do with. I did think they deserved better.
Then Charlottesville happened. The response of Donald Trump came. The public was waiting for a response. One that could help lift their spirits. One that would show the world, suddenly, what an incredible man there was, steering the wheel of the round big thing we call earth. I did know we didn’t have to expect much, it being Trump, but still. His response and the response to that woke me up forgood.
Donald Trump really is vile. I don’t know what can be expected from him, but I do know it can never be good.
During the years of Obama, we saw a loving power couple. They were warm, charming, loving, tender, caring, they showed a love for one another that made you feel like they were the head of a cosy family you were part of. They were involved in important matters, Barack would give a speech that gave you back a feeling of strength and believe that there’s still good in the world. His wife was involved in multiple good causes, their children were visibly an important part of their lives and in short: it was a pretty picture.
We appear to have ended up in the freezer with the Trump’s. I’m pretty sure we will be the main course soon.
The bad thing is: youngsters take his example of not accepting people who look a bit different, who think different, and now feel free to harass these people. Because Donald Trump doesn’t tell them violence is never the answer. He actually doesn’t say anything. He just shows he doesn’t care. At all.
I did always think Trump was stupid. I have never changed my mind about that. Given that on tv is shown how easy it is to earn a lot of money by simply appearing on there and doing nothing, I have no admiration whatsoever for Trump.
Any of his family members are truly despicable, the women included. Fighting to empower women, while the patriarch of the family brags about how he sexually abuses and intimidates women, even bragging that he thinks his daughter is shaggable or whatever. Their father and her husband pardoned a man who was happy to let a woman give birth in chains (because his own wife preferred to keep bondage out of the bedroom, I guess?)!
How is that empowering women, Ivanka?
How is that fighting against bullying, Melania?
How do you keep your daughters clean from any abuse if you don’t even tell your dad to pipe down towards vulnerable young girls and women, Ivanka?
How is that helping in that department? I hope you DO realise that it takes more than just the people within your own circles to actually BE a good person?
Soldiers are fighting for your life, Donald Trump. They are fighting for the people and their country, and you’re simply telling them they’re not good enough, because they had the misfortune to end up in the wrong body and still feel the need to fight. You told them to basically just stay at home, Donald. What for? Are you gonna fight yourself? You’re hair might get tangled, you know? Your sons won’t help. They’re too busy trophy hunting.
