Meet the Candidates:
Donald John Trump. A brash, inappropriate, conceited businessman.
Hillary Diane Clinton: A corrupt, deceptive, proven criminal.
How the hell did it come down to this? That’s the question heard around the world. And I can’t honestly come up with a good answer. I’m not convinced that anyone can. But these two are our choices, and in the words of Forest Gump, “That’s all I’ve got to say about that”. For my inaugural blog, I am going to highlight the strengths, and pick apart the weaknesses of both candidates. Bear with me. This may get a little chippy.
The Donald: Did he really just say that?
Let’s start with the Republican nominee, the party I identify with. Trump. A 70 year old male from Queens, unarguably born into wealth. With that said, though, The Donald has built an empire. One with a rich history and of up-most importance to the great city of New York. Being a family man, he has 5 children, and knows how to raise some pretty good kids. And that speaks a lot about the character of an individual. He is often generous and surprisingly described as some as one of the greatest guys you will ever meet. But then there is the bad. My biggest advice to someone regarding Trump? Stay on his good side. He is a short tempered, bigot that will call you fat, ugly, and a tramp even if you look like Dana Loesch, which every woman should strive towards. Plain and simple, it is his way, or no way. Having once said “One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace, good people don’t go into government”, he has followed down the path that he was so opposed to. Does that make him a hypocrite? You bet. In his defense though, we all are, so there’s that. Something I cannot fathom, though, is his apparent open hatred towards minorities. Or it appears that way at least. Now I know, context is everything. You can say one thing and mean another. Ask my girlfriend, I have to say that one a lot… Some of my favorite Trump moments quotes are as followed:
“All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me—consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.” That tool in high school everybody knows…
“You take a look at her, she’s a slob. She talks like a, like a truck driver.” Referring to Rosie O’Donnell
“Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest—and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure. It’s not your fault.” I’m kind of offended by that one.
Now these are just a few. He has been in many scandals, not renting to African Americans, the latest sexual comments with Bill Bush, and even a rape allegation. Now, I have read into the last allegation I stated and it seems awfully fishy. But only time will tell on that one. With Trump, it’s a risk. But maybe one worth taking? That’s the beauty about America. It’s up to you!
Hillary Rodham: “It’s not my fault…”
Ole Hills The epitome of white privilege, if it truly exists. Hillary, a 68 year old woman from Chicago, has made a name for herself and is a fighter. That cannot be argued. She has held pretty significant political offices including Secretary of State and a senator for New York. Simply put, she has laser vision. What I mean by that is if she sees something, she will not quit until she achieves said goal. She too, is a family focused individual. She is often patient, and extremely forgiving, just ask Bill. In all seriousness, though, if my future daughter had some of the characteristics I just mentioned, she would be a contributing member of society. And I would be a proud father. And then… here comes the ugly. I am convinced when writing Scandal, Shanda Rhymes just looked at Hillary Clinton. Because I mean, come on. If it’s not one thing, its the other. The one I find inexcusable is one of her latest. Benghazi. Having stated it simply wasn’t her job to protect the late Ambassador Stevens, I am disgusted and angered by that. She cannot follow the law. Whether it is simply not achieving the expectations that she promised to do when swearing in as the secretary of state, or the idiotic thought that having a home brew server was a good idea, she cannot be trusted. Right now, everyone is talking about Trump’s comments with Billy Bush. Yes, they are inexcusable, and disgusting. If my son said those things, I would beat him into next week. As I’m sure my mom would have done to me. But Hillary shamed a rape victim. Simply made fun of her. If that wasn’t bad enough, she did it again to the victim’s of Bill Clinton. Again, that too is inexcusable. I could go on for days about Clinton. More so than Trump. Simply because she has prided herself on being a “public servant” and a career politician. But before I get too unhinged, I will leave it with some of my favorite quotes from Hills.
“No. We just can’t trust the American people to make those types of choices … Government has to make those choices for people.” – Hillary Clinton Is that why the DNC was rigged?
“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.” Completely false as proven by video.
“My husband may have his faults, but he has never lied to me.” LOL
“The last time I actually drove a car myself was 1996.” #Blessed
