I am really astounded. I don’t even know where to begin. Today, Donald Trump showed us what sleaze really is. He has no understanding of morality, dignity, or manhood.
I am not just talking about the lewd comments he made on that now infamous tape from Access Hollywood. I am talking about the whole day and how he made a fool of himself time after time.
Earlier today, he announced to the world that “illegal immigrants” are flooding over the border just to vote for Hillary Clinton. I wonder if this “man” even knows how to think in a reasonable manner.
First of all, undocumented immigrants cannot vote. They cannot even register to vote because they don’t have the citizenship papers need to register to vote. So, this is nothing more than another scare tactic and an anti-immigrant, more specifically anti-Mexican rant.
In case anyone is wondering or doesn’t know, it takes 5 years after receiving a “green card” before an immigrant can even apply for citizenship. Is Donald Trump suggesting that the people who work at the polls don’t know how to do their job and deny a vote to undocumented immigrants? Is he suggesting that they are deliberately not doing their job? Just what is he trying to say here?
Then he went off on the Central Park Five again. I don’t even know why he went there. In case you forgot, 5 teenagers were accused of beating and raping a woman jogging in Central Park in 1989. After hours of interrogation, they cracked and confessed. They were found guilty of the crime and sentenced to jail.
Several years later, another person confessed to the crime and DNA evidence proved that the so-called Central Park Five were innocent and they were released from jail. When they were convicted, Trump took out a full-page ad in the newspapers and demanded that the death penalty be reinstated.
After the 5 were released and sued the city, they were awarded millions of dollars in compensation. Trump called it the “biggest heist” in the city’s history. For some sick reason today he continued to claim that the 5 were guilty and should be in jail.
Evidence and science be damned. Trump claims they are guilty therefore they are guilty.
Then tonight the Washington Post released a lewd tape of Trump making really bad comments and “bragging” about how he can sexually assault women because he is famous. I am not going to get into detail and give him any more print to these vulgar comments here. But Trump said “I apologize if these comments offended anybody”.
IF? IF THESE COMMENTS OFFENDED ANYBODY? Sorry, but I cannot think of anyone who wouldn’t be offended by these comments. But, then there are those phony Christian conservatives who love Donald Trump.
Ralph Reed, the chairman of the faith and Freedom Coalition and a member of Trump’s religious advisory board said:
I’ve listened to the tape, my view is that people of faith are voting on issues like who will protect unborn life, defend religious freedom, create jobs, and oppose the Iran nuclear deal. I think a 10-year-old tape of a private conversation with a TV talk show host ranks pretty low on their hierarchy of concerns.
Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, another Trump supporter, told BuzzFeed he isn’t concerned with sharing “values” with the GOP nominee.
“My personal support for Donald Trump has never been based upon shared values, it is based upon shared concerns about issues such as: justices on the Supreme Court that ignore the constitution, America’s continued vulnerability to Islamic terrorists and the systematic attack on religious liberty that we’ve seen in the last 7 1/2 years,” he said in an email.
There are more, but that gives you an idea why I keep saying these Christian Conservatives are anything but Christian. This man is running to be our President. The leader of our country, and of the free world. And these Christians aren’t concerned about voting for him after he brags about sexually assaulting women?
Meanwhile, Russell Moore, who heads the Southern Baptist Commission’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, tweeted out that the audio undergirds his long-held concerns about Trump. And he posted a statement he’d released more than a year ago explaining his opposition to Trump.
“In the 1990s, some of these social conservatives argued that ‘If Bill Clinton’s wife can’t trust him, neither can we. If character matters, character matters. Today’s evangelicals should ask, ‘Whatever happened to our commitment to ‘traditional family values’?”
The fallout has been drastic. But, all of the fallout has been over the tape and does not include the other offensive comments about immigrants and the Central Park Five.
Trump and Pence were supposed to appear tomorrow with Ryan and Priebus. Ryan said Trump would not be there. Trump said he would be with Priebus to “prepare” for Sunday’s debate. There have even been calls for Trump to resign his nomination.
There have been a lot of accusations and innuendos about Hillary Clinton ranging from emails to Benghazi. Nothing has come out of the various “investigations” that showed any “wrong-doing” or criminal activity. When Republicans say Clinton “broke the law” by using a private server, she didn’t. There was no law about using a private server when she was Secretary of State. I am not sure there is a law about that even still.
You can believe what you want about Hillary Clinton. However, these issues surrounding Trump, his Foundation using pay-for-play by making political donations and its self dealing for purchasing items using Foundation money for Trump’s personal use are proven and illegal.
The comments he has made about people with physical disabilities and especially women are real, repulsive and on tape. All of his comments about Mexico sending us their “rapists and criminals” are real and on tape.
His wanting to stop all immigration to Muslims is real and on tape. His idea of “extreme vetting” including “religious tests” are real and on tape. The man has no principles except serving himself.
I hate to do this, but to use his own words, the man is a pig. If anyone can still support this bozo, I feel sorry for you. You must be a person who looks in the mirror and sees no reflection. There is no other reason anyone can support this man except for the racists, white supremacists, nativists, homophobes, xenophobes, and hate mongers.
This is NOT what America is about. There are many forms of torture. Donald Trump actually being the Republican Nominee is torture for our country. We better wake up before it is too late for everyone.
