Would that I Could Be a Fly on Bernie Sanders’ Wall Tonight
…And other thoughts that tonight’s debate sparked.
1. WHAT THE F*$K WAS THIS?
Trump should put an application in with the Secret Service. That way, he’ll have a legit reason to crawl up Hillary’s ass looking like Orange Al Capone about to send her to swim with the fishes.
Okay. All joking aside, I’m positive that was Trump trying to PHYSICALLY INTIMIDATE Hillary Clinton. AMIRITE???
2. And What About THIS S#*T
CLINTON: It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.”
TRUMP: “Because you would be in jail.”
COOPER: “We want to remind the audience to please not talk out loud. Do not applaud. You are wasting time.”
Yes. Anderson Cooper had to SHUSH the audience at the presidential debate (Yeah. I am not even capitalizing that shit) when one candidate threatened to throw the other candidate in jail.
America, can you even make out the general outline of Sanityville from way over there in Crazytown?
Remember this headline?
Republican front runner is so supremely confident that he believes he could commit murder and maintain his lead over his opponents — The Guardian, 1/24/16
and this picture?
I was honestly not going to be surprised when he pulled out his .38 and popped a cap in her ass right there on stage…and all that would happen is that Anderson Cooper would have to shush the audience again.
And we would all just wake up tomorrow like nothing had changed, just like we have been waking up since the beginning of this race.
BUT THINGS HAVE CHANGED. We are a nation divided. This brings me to the last thing I am going to write about this subject, as there are people far more qualified than I am to dive in here.
As the debate closed with neither candidate willing to budge an inch, I was reminded of the Judgment of Solomon.
Two women both claiming to be the mother of a young child…Solomon is mediating between them, and decides the only fair answer is to split the child in half and send one half with each mother. The false mother starts working out the details, but the true mother is willing to walk away and let the child go if it means he will not be harmed.
Solomon sees who the true mother is and returns the child to her.
There’s a lot more to that story but for my purpose this is plenty.
The President of the United States is supposed to be a patriot. Love of country should propel them to do everything in their power to BRING ITS PEOPLE TOGETHER.
Not rip them apart!
This campaign is tearing our country apart. And I keep waiting for someone to bow out gracefully, because they’re really serious about this thing, and they can see that it has gone way off the rails and that it’s only going to get worse.
I’m waiting to see who our true mother is, so to speak.
Because regardless of who wins, it’ll be a Pyrrhic victory. For our entire country.
I can’t imagine the American people, indivisible, one nation, collectively respecting either of these candidates after tonight.
God. How hard would it be to band together and strike through both of their names on the ballot, as a nation?
A little civil disobedience.
It’s what this country was built on.
Maybe it’s time to get back to basics.
