Dick Of The Day : Donald Trump and the obvious answers
Today the Republican National Convention begins, and with it, another spectacle is loaded into the hopper for the public masturbation that is Donald Trump. This man has held the attention of the world for several months now, and rightly so. What was once a laughable campaign that seemed like more of a publicity stunt than anything, has now turned into a bonafide thorn in the nation’s side. As the co-author of “The Art of the Deal” put it, a Donald J Trump presidency would be “Terrifying”. No shit.
Anyone with a hint of an education can see that. As Jim Jeffries put it, “If you say you like Trump because he is a straight talker, you are fucking stupid.”
We are talking about a man who has, on more than one occasion, spoken about adding all muslims to a registry. A man who says Mexicans are dangerous murderers and rapist who are going to build a wall for us to keep them out. This is the same person who publicly mocked a disabled man and refused to apologize for his actions. A sexist bigot who views women as objects rather than equals and a fella who has praised Saddam Hussein and Vladimir Putin, but that’s all old news. These are issues that can be viewed as skewed by the media (although I don’t believe they are). If someone wants to be close-minded and stubborn, he or she can argue against these public false steps. It can be argued that he is doing and saying these things to get a reaction, and that he doesn’t actually believe the things he is saying. Ok fine, but what about the things he fundamentally believes in? Here’s a couple scary thoughts:
1) Donald Trump doesn’t believe in Global Warming
Back in 2012, the Don tweeted this. That’s like saying my cat is a healthy weight and isn’t an annoying, judgemental shit. It’s simply not true. Thanks to /u/LCkrogh on Reddit, here are 50 more tweets on Trump’s thought about Global Warming. Call me a hippie, but I believe in taking care of this country. Simply refusing to believe hard science is ignorant and shows a shallow understanding of the world view.
2) He would defund the EPA:
To Dovetail off of the fact that ol’ dingle berry doesn’t believe in Global Warming, he also believes the Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, should be defunding. In October 2015, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked Trump if he would “cut departments” if he were elected President, and Trump replied in part: “Environmental Protection, what they do is a disgrace. Every week they come out with new regulations.” Wallace then asked, “who’s going to protect the environment,” and Trump answered: “We’ll be fine with the environment. We can leave a little bit, but you can’t destroy businesses.”
3) He doesn’t believe in the Department of Education:
As his wife said yesterday in her speech at the Republican National Convention, every single child should have the ability to be educated and taken care of by this nation. Melania may be dumber than a box of shit, but at least she understands the value of an education. However, back in October, her ginger husband hinted that, if elected to the Presidency, he would cut the Department of Education. Say what you will about Common Core and how it prepares children for the real world. However, it seems like Don’s tactic is to destroy anything he doesn’t like. Great Negotiator?
“No, I’m not cutting services, but I’m cutting spending. But I may cut Department of Education.
4) He is Narcissistic and borderline Manic:
This is something everyone knows. However, it is something we need to take very seriously. Take his entrance to RNC last night.
This is a great metaphor for how this man truly is. A man caught up in the feel goods of attention (good and bad). A man who loves the stage and will do what he needs to do to stay front and center. He will say and do anything to get a reaction and that is not a good thing. Not a good thing at all.
A president is someone who can negotiate as the face of a nation. He or she is the person who represents the ideals and morals of millions of people. The President is a person who has to make actual decisions that will affect millions, potentially billions of people. Performance art has no place in the White House.
When the chips are down in November, we may be deciding between a giant douche and a turd sandwich. However, the fact is that Donald Trump is bad for America. Heck, he is bad for the world. It’s no doubt then, that he was the unanimous choice for today’s Dick of the Day. So Donny, here’s to you. Eat a Dick
