trump and his deplorables

donald trump is a deplorable human being. I’m not being too subtle, am I?

It is not such a shameful thing that Clinton referred to half the trumpies as a basket of deplorables because, in fact, she is right.

And here is why I say that:

trump is an enemy of democracy who deliberately stirs up anti-American sentiment among those who remain disgruntled that the South lost the Civil War. He is pushing us toward another such war, though the Southern trumpies would just say it is going to be a continuation of the original War.

For example, trump is such a crybaby that he is already claiming in advance that the election will be rigged. The United States has the most advanced voting system in the world, with dozens of safeguards built into the system. The claim of rigging — especially when made in advance — is absurd. But trump is not trying to make a credible claim. He knows the trumpies are not interested in being rational about such things. He simply is trying to find as many ways as possible to insult America, to build distrust among Americans.

In casting doubt on our elections, he is striking at the heart of democracy. It is in and through our elections that Americans get to demonstrate year after year that We the People create and sustain a government that is of the people, by the people, and for the people.

To demean our elections is to demean America and to cripple democracy.

It is my studied and firm opinion that donald trump is a more serious threat to America than is ISIS. Therefore, he and his followers are truly deplorable.
