Yep. I get it. I know you’re angry. I know you feel that our country is in turmoil and we need to do something to find some way to get the United States of America back on track. But Donald Trump is not the answer to our problems.
I will give you all my Tory Burch handbags if you agree not to vote for him. I will buy you dinner and drinks, and drive you home afterwards. I will babysit for your kids for three weekends in a row- just please, please, please don’t vote for him.
In all seriousness, I’m just going to take a moment here and list some of the things The Donald has said at one time or another, and then we can discuss…
I can’t even.
First of all, the way The Donald talks about and refers to women is sexist, wrong, and disgusting. He has no respect for women, and I can only imagine how every single woman who would work in the White House under his Presidency (God forbid), would have to suffer from his humiliation and disrespect on a daily basis. You couldn’t pay me enough to work for someone who thinks so little of my tiny woman brain. Plus, since I’ve put on a few pounds after having two very large children and doing the “aging gracefully” thing, I’m sure The Donald would rate me as a “2”. But, of course, he’s a “10”. (I just puked a little in my mouth).
If you have a daughter, how would you feel if he talked about her the way he talks about women he doesn’t like (the majority of our female population)? Would that be okay with you? Would it be perfectly acceptable for him to call your daughter names and accuse her of having “blood coming out of her” just because your daughter gave him a few hard questions to answer during a debate? And please don’t pretend that you buy his after-the-fact lie that the blood coming out of “her wherever” was supposed to be her nose. You aren’t that stupid. I know you’re not. I’m definitely not that stupid.
To his credit, he has said his daughter is smart. That’s good. One point for The Donald for that remark, but then he lets all of America know that she’s real hot, and if he weren’t her dad, he’d be “dating” her. Um...no words.
And, Dude, seriously- the comments about Mexicans. Come on, now. Is this what people REALLY think and believe? Do normal, everyday, good-hearted people REALLY think that Mexicans coming into our country are rapists? I mean, unfortunately, there are rapists everywhere. And for realz, Donny, not all of the Mexicans coming here from Mexico are rapists. The majority of the Mexicans entering the U.S are not rapists. In fact, I’ll bet you a MILLION dollars (because we know, we know, you are FILTHY rich, and you can afford it- you can stop reminding us), that only a VERY small percentage of Mexicans coming into our country are rapists. In fact, there may very well be no Mexicans coming into our country at this time who are rapists. It’s possible. Think about it. And don’t even get me started on all the grammar errors in that group of ridiculous nonsense he spouted out about Mexicans. My head hurts just reading the quote.
I don’t think The Donald should be talking about other people’s marriages, no matter who it is. He’s got no room to talk about marriage train wrecks and cheating spouses. Pretty sure he’s been there, done that. Saying he’s a “traditionalist” (he did, he said it), when asked about gay marriage, is just plain ludicrous. Wouldn’t a “traditionalist” also believe that more than one divorce should be a bit frowned upon? And wasn’t The Donald still married when he started seeing the second (or third, I can’t keep track), wife? Traditional he’s not, and that’s okay. I don’t have a lot of room to judge anyone when it comes to failed marriages, but please don’t pretend that you’re above anyone else when it comes to the union of marriage. You suck at it, just like many of the rest of us little people, Donny.
I especially love it when The Donald attacks people if they dare to disagree with him. It’s not just a normal, “Hey- your opinion is wrong and mine is right”, he has to bully the person by calling him/her names, saying that person is stupid, and humiliating the person in every way possible. When watching him do this to others, I think, “Am I back in middle school, because this sounds like the bullies in middle school.” What a terrific role model he is for our young people (that’s me, being sarcastic). Should we start teaching our kids that the way to win an argument isn’t by showing that you are confident, smart, and by knowing the facts, instead, you should call your opposing debater “a fat, ugly, pig”, and then you should say something about how you want to “punch him in the face” or “catch him on fire.” Awesome.
And, for the love of God, Donny, don’t ever talk about blood coming out of a woman again unless you are at the scene of a brutal murder and you are reporting the crime to law enforcement. I honestly cannot believe that real, rational, normal Americans think this kind of talk by someone who might potentially be the leader of the free world (puked in my mouth again), is acceptable. It’s not. It’s not okay. It’s not funny. It’s repugnant and it’s dangerous.
I also have a real problem with people who refuse to apologize when they do something wrong. I’d have at least a sliver of respect for The Donald if he’d just admit when he does or says something inappropriate and would apologize. You see, that’s another thing I try to teach my boys. If you do something wrong, you take ownership of it and you apologize to whomever it is that you hurt. It’s the definition of a good person and it’s the right thing to do as a human being. This world would be a much better place if people would stop blaming others for their mistakes and instead just suck it up, admit the wrongdoing, and say, “I’m sorry,” The Donald is the King of blaming others and never acknowledging his own mistakes. Again, it reminds me of middle school. However, most of the middle school children I know do a much better job of apologizing than The Donald does.
I’ve always taught my children that whomever the President may be, even if you don’t like him or his politics, you must always respect him (or her). Everyone should have respect for the office, and for the leader of our country (no matter what a douchebag he might be).
A friend asked me the other day what I would do if The Donald became our President (full fledged vomit now exiting my mouth). I gave her the wrong answer on that day. I told her that he wouldn’t get my respect, but I was wrong. I’d be going against everything I believe and all the things I’ve taught my kids if I talked poorly and disrespected our President. If The Donald becomes President (now I’m having heart palpitations), I will do my very best to give him the respect I believe the President of the United States deserves, even if that President does not respect me (and he won’t).
He won’t respect me because he could care less what a middle-aged, slightly overweight, stay-at-home mom, struggling writer thinks about him or any of the decisions he makes on MY behalf. I’m pretty darn sure that The Donald wouldn’t do well working FOR someone. He’s always the boss, and he makes that very clear. What would happen if he became our President (rather have a hot poker in the eye), and he simply could NOT bring himself for work for the American people? That scares me, because our President SHOULD care what I and every other parent, working adult, unemployed adult, child, teacher, mentally ill person, cancer patient, mail carrier, law enforcement officer, soldier, and every other American citizen thinks or feels or needs. But this guy, The Donald, I think he only cares about one thing- The Donald.
Please don’t embarrass our country by putting this man in the Oval Office. Please don’t allow him to be the representative of who Americans are and what we believe. I shudder when I hear of my friends living in other countries talk about The Donald and how in the world anyone in the United States of America could or would stand behind such a vulgar, egotistical, women-hating, blow hard.
I don’t care what your politics are, whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat. Vote for anyone other than this narcissistic, woman-hating, bully. I would vote for my thirteen-year-old son before I’d vote for The Donald. And, quite honestly, I think at this point, my thirteen-year-old son is more dignified and more qualified. He’s certainly more respectful, kind, and sincere. And, most of the time, my kid says, “I’m sorry”, when he hurts my feelings or does something wrong.
Don’t let your anger and discontent with the world today cloud your good judgement. Deep down inside I think you know this man cannot be our President. Do the right thing and vote for anyone else. Do it for our kids, if nothing else, because they need someone to look up to who can admit when he’s wrong, who talks respectfully and kindly about ALL people in the world, and who loves the United States of America more than he loves getting good television ratings, winning, and criticizing anyone and everyone who doesn’t agree with everything he believes.
I’ll simply close by saying to you all…
Goodluck and God bless the United States of America.
