Top Trumps

I don’t want to write posts here that just take the piss out of real people (the last one was mocking me more than anything) but I heard something disturbing yesterday. This deserves it’s own paragraph.

‘I would rather have Trump than Hillary’

I can’t be the only person who finds that terrifying. I’ve always assumed taking the piss out of Trump is always going to be common ground for nearly anyone. I thought that his rhetoric would only be effective on Americans. Maybe this needs context.

There is a bloke here who I hadn’t spoken to beforease yesterday so I struck up conversation about how Trump basically called for people to assassinate Hillary. Then he said that. 

This was maybe the third sentence he ever said to me. It was a brave statement to be sure. I mean I would think twice before announcing I supported someone who called for a political assassination. Then he defended Trump with his official line that what he really meant was that pro gun lobbyists should use their political power and vote. 

I heard what Trump said and maybe that is what he meant but the secret service seem to disagree. But even leaving that aside what about everything else? What about wanting to tag Muslims which is certainly reminiscent of something isn’t it? Trump has rallies too which is also reminiscent of someone. 

What about that stupid fucking wall?What about his flip flopping on every goddamn policy? What about the hatred and violence he incites against protestors? 

This guy went onto say Trump is really popular with veterans. What about Muslim Veterans or black or Hispanic? Trump has dodged the draft multiple times but men and women who fought and saw their friends die support him? I doubt it.

Trump said Obama was the founder and MVP of ISIS. ISIS State that one of their goals are to drive a wedge between moderate Muslims and the West. I sat that Trump is the MVP. I say that every Islamaphobic comment by anyone in the West especially someone wit a.platform is just as responsible for every terrorist attack as the terrorists.

Sorry for being so preachy but I care about this.
