This is What “Too Far” Looks Like.

Posted on

Yesterday, Donald Trump said something that I’m sure his supporters will be defending for months. Some will say he was joking. Some will say his words were taken out of context. And some will say he meant something other than what he actually said.

And they’ll all be wrong.

They’ll be wrong factually and they’ll be wrong ethically.

Because nobody should defend what Trump said yesterday. His comment should be condemned by democrats, republicans, libertarians, green party members, and independents.

It should be condemned by Trump supporters, Clinton supporters, Johnson supporters, Stein supporters, and by those who aren’t voting at all.

Donald Trump’s comment should be condemned by everybody.

Before yesterday, Trump had the potential to be dangerous, but he wasn’t quite there yet.

Yesterday, he became dangerous.

Trust Has Layers.

Posted on

“Do you trust Hillary Clinton?”

I’m asked this question often, and every time I’m asked, I respond with, “That’s not a ‘yes or no’ question.”

And almost every time I give that answer, the person who asked the question assumes I mean, “No.” They’re wrong to assume that. I simply mean trust has layers. Read the rest of this entry

“Bernie or Bust” People Never Supported Bernie Sanders

Posted on

The title sums it up pretty well…

If you’re one of the “Bernie or Bust” people, you never supported Bernie in the first place. You’re either a liar or you’re the kid who took the football home with you when the other team scored a touchdown. Read the rest of this entry

Why Hillary Will Keep Her Promises…

Posted on

I keep hearing the same concern, especially from Bernie supporters:

“I just don’t think Hillary Clinton will follow through on her promises.”

I hear this a lot. And for good reason… Read the rest of this entry

According to Donald J. Trump…

Posted on

This is a list of actual quotes from Donald Trump. This is not a list of my opinions. I, of course, have an opinion, and the way this list is organized may or may not give you a basic idea of what I think. But, truly, changing your mind is not the reason I’m listing these quotes. I know my opinion won’t affect your voting decision at all, so I’m not going to bother trying to convince you otherwise, either way.

I’ve compiled this list of quotes because, today, I want to hear your opinions. Specifically, I’m interested in hearing your answers to two specific questions.

Top 10 Things Guaranteed To Happen If Trump Is Elected

Posted on

1. He will say, on camera, “Mr. Obama … you’re fired!” then will mug for the camera for at least 37 minutes.

2. We will have a competitor for the worst reality show ever: “Can’t Stump the Trump!”, a “filmed live yet edited for content” type of show in which Mr. Trump walks around Washington, D.C., asking people if they know who he is and, on a scale of nine to ten, how much they love him. They will then be allowed to ask Mr. Trump one question, which he will answer immediately. John Dickerson will be listed in the credits as “Fact Checker,” but will not actually be allowed to fulfill the duties of this position.

3. He will refer to his Vice President as “The Apprentice”

4. The Grant Memorial, National Mall, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Memorial and the WWII Memorial will all be moved in order to make way for the Presidential Fairway. Anything hit into any of the museums along the way is considered “out of bounds” and may result in a two-stroke penalty.

5. Ted Nugent, American Medal of Freedom winner, will play the National Anthem every morning at 6:30 a.m. from the steps of the Capitol building, just before airing his new public access radio show, “I Hate Everything About Jew.” Sarah Palin will be hired to dance “seductively” during Nugent’s performance.

6. President Trump’s first Supreme Court appointee will be “This guy I know. He got me a great deal on some land in Scotland. They love me over there, you know. Sure, they had to change plans for some wind turbans or something, but hey – a deal is a deal!” If you correct Mr. Trump for his use of “wind turbans” instead of “wind turbines,” he will ask why you hate America.

7. The ACA is repealed, and The Bornstein Scale of Good Healthcare is rolled out immediately. Named after Trump’s personal physician, Harold Bornstein, who is immediately installed as the new Surgeon General, the Bornstein Scale of Good Healthcare is based on pre-treatment triage. Classifications include, “Astonishingly excellent,” “Bestest health ever in the history of the whole world,” “You may wanna see a doctor about that,” and, “Well, we don’t have a death panel, but if we did …”

8. Trump will streamline a new process for immigration and citizenship, but it may only be used by his personal tailor so the President can finally wear suits that are made in America.

9. All Super Bowl Halftime entertainment will be provided by monster trucks and people on motorcycles jumping through flaming hoops. If one of them crashes and dies, free Papa Johns pizza for the entire country the next day. (Limit one pizza per household.)

10. President Trump, after a three-day bender holed up in his hotel in Las Vegas, decides to prove his point. He then proceeds to shoot people in the street, immediately followed by asking the next-closest person if they still love him.

You all take care of each other and have a good day.
