Over the course of my 20 years I have had the exquisite experience of watching the American Election as it happened. Barack Obama vs John McCaine. I saw the first ever African American President get elected, live on TV.
Whilst some of you may not consider this to be a particularly riveting experience. (Granted I didn’t really enjoy it that much myself at the time either.) Couped up in a small hotel room in Florida, my father chugging six beers an hour, sprawled out on a double bed in nothing but his underpants, air con on, mum reading a book. I seem to recall there had been a tornado warning of all things, just to add to the climax.
Nevertheless I look back now and consider this to be a rather fond memory, and a turning point for the USA.
The first African American President. What a triumph.
But 10 years on and the Americans have blown it. Hilary Clinton vs Donald Trump I hear you whisper. No it can’t be! An Ex-Republican and an orange baboon in a syrup, what is happening to the world?
The fact of the matter is, anyone who votes Trump to become the 45th President of the almighty United States of America, is literally a fucking idiot. That’s if of course, he even gets that far with his not to silly (anymore) self made campaign.
Over the past few weeks I have read some of Trumps best quotes as to why he should in fact claim the title. Here, in no particular order, are my favourites:
- “I am putting the people on notice that are coming here from Syria as part of this mass migration that if I win, they’re going back. They’re going back, I’m telling you,”
The all knowing Trump then went on to say that you couldn’t be 100% sure refugees weren’t, as he put it, “ISIS.” Well as a matter of fact Donald, if you’d read the news lately, you might be aware these refugees are actually trying to escape ISIS, not promote it. Surely if they were happy with the way things were being done out there they’d stay? And no you can’t be 100% sure that refugees aren’t undercover terrorists, but there are preventive measures like the FBI that you so advocate. I’m quite sure that if someone wanted to bomb your pretty little tower in New York City, they’d go through a much less pain staking way of getting to the US than jumping on a boat to seek asylum. Like maybe buying a plane ticket? Oh no sorry, that’s a crazy idea.
- On Mexican Immigration: “They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”
So for want of a better phrase, Trumpy is basically saying all Mexicans are criminals. Or at least that’s what he’s insinuating. It’s actually quite worrying that for someone who wants to become President, Trump has so much hatred for a bordering country to the USA. Even more so that this hatred is based on exaggerated stereotypes and what is basically racism. Considering the USA is such a diverse country in terms of ethnicity, a racist President is by no means something that would be ideal for its citizens. Least someone with so much money coupled with so much ignorance. On a less serious note, the end of Mexican culture in the US means a lack of Mexican food, which means a lack of guacamole. If that happens I will seriously lose my rag.
- “26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military, only 238 convictions. What else did these geniuses expect when they put men and women together?
Er definitely not rape if that’s what you mean Donald. I mean seriously you’re the one with a fart for a surname, use your imagination. I know you think all women should be classed as sexual objects, purely to fulfil the demands and urges of men. But I think in reality, (and most civilised people would agree), that is actually not the case. Stop condoning rape you misogynistic arsehole, and maybe learn to communicate with women WITHOUT putting your wrinkly penis in them. Just a thought.
Following on from this I have noticed that the majority of Trump supporters I have come across on Facebook, (in rather heated discussions on Huffington Post), are usually male ex-army warmongers. Naturally they lack any sense of empathy or liberal thought, and probably have the brain size of a peanut. But there is a notifiable correlation between war and Trump, which is worrying to say the least. After all he is a Republican.
- On the Oregon Shooting: “I can make the case that if there were guns in that room other than his, fewer people would’ve died, fewer people would’ve been so horribly injured.”
So Donald you don’t believe in passing stricter gun laws? Well blow me, that’s the entire problem of gun violence just straight out the window then. To respond to gun violence with more gun violence is just a recipe for disaster. Gun crime and massacre is one of the fundamental issues within America contemporarily, and to come out with a phrase like that just shows that Trump has no real understanding of the issue. Trump also went onto say that “these things happen” a day after the shooting, and that perpetrators of such crimes are “sick as hell.” He gave no response as to how he would deal with the route cause of the problem: How guns are so easily accessible in American Society, and the lack of support for those with mental health issues. In my opinion the fact that Trump is so unwilling to prevent an issue in an ideal manner which affects so many American Citizens, clearly shows that as a President he really would be as selfish as he seems. Oh wait.
After reading this I do genuinely hope everyone agrees Donald Trump is an imbecile. Frankly, he’s a laughing stock in the UK and we are astounded he has so much support. America have built up nearly 10 solid years under Obama, and to throw it all away just for Trump to live in the Whitehouse and cause chaos, really does seem like a cheap deal. God forbid if his grand plans became a reality, I honestly believe America would go backwards rather than forwards.
I just hope the Yanks believe it too.
