Donald Trump will never be President. He's a publicity hound and gets that with the current despicable campaign finance laws he can support his billionaire lifestyle with campaign donations from gullible people regardless of their net worth. So he goes for the Presidential PR ride at our expense. Republicans appear to be that gullible. Yes they do.
I really don't care who the Republican base gives their money to except that it turns out that they inflict their idiot candidates on me. At that point I have a problem.
Trump has this big thing about dissing immigrants. He lives very close to a massive monument that has this inscription on it:
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Most of us have heard the last five lines but not the rest of it. How many of you have ever heard "Mother of Exiles" as something on our Statue of Liberty?
So when Trump calls Latino immigrants all the things he calls them, he never acknowledges that they are seeking freedom in their way. No, they are "rapists" and worse. "Mexico is sending us their drug addicts and rapists." Trump said that.
Trump lives in New York, the state that recently had a prison outbreak of drug addicts and rapists. Very big news, that! So where did the woman who said she helped them escape say they wanted to go? One to Canada..the other had the dream of making it to Mexico. Mexico! Donald Trump, in his alter ego as American Patriot, was complicit in sending a rapist, murdering, drug addict to Mexico. Except that the authorities captured the guy before he made it.
Thank goodness America never sent their drug addicts, rapists, and murderers to Mexico. That would have lowered the American psyche to the level of every body else in the Western Hemisphere. Where we belong!
