Overcast in a thick-gray mist this early Thursday on California’s north coast, and although the NWS forecasts ‘Mostly Sunny‘ for today, we’re way-most-likely still hours away from sunshine.
In an odd year for way-many reasons, this presidential campaign tops even all the weird, and has become more a black hole of fright than anything else — yet what’s to do?
I’ve never, ever been a big fan of Hillary Clinton, and she’d probably be a mediocre to poor president, but the alternative to her is pure, unmitigated disaster.
Donald Trump — enjoy instead the moniker, ‘T-Rump’ way-much — the first candidate in my lifetime who’s becoming more-obvious a solid-complete piece-of-shit. A stand-alone asshole in private life, he’s a 100-percent possible-nightmare for the US and the world as president.
Due to the media’s inability to fully handle such a cretin on the national stage, T-Rump is actually, and supposedly neck-n-neck with Hillary in the polls — right now: ‘The CBS News/New York Times poll of likely voters found that the Democratic nominee is just 2 points ahead of Trump in a two-way matchup (46 percent-44 percent). That difference is within the margin of error.’
And T-Rump has demonstrated he doesn’t give a shit about anything/anybody except Trump, and he will lie, bully and blather without barely blinking an eye, twisting reality around with indeed a forked tongue.
A horrifying example came yesterday when T-Rump visited an African-American church in Flint, Mich. He was interrupted by the pastor during his speech when he charged into Hillary-bashing — (ABC News): ‘Trump, speaking at a Flint church, had started to mention Hillary Clinton when the Rev. Faith Green-Timmons cut him off to say, “Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we’ve done in Flint, not give a political speech.”
Trump acquiesced, and promptly continued with his remarks.’
T-Rump, however, changed the tune of the story, shifting the scene to an ambush: ‘“She was so nervous,” Trump said this morning on “Fox and Friends.” “She was a nervous mess, and so I figured something — I figured something was up, really.”‘
The asshole really has some sort of creepy, weird-ass complex.
The story, though, is not reality.
Scott Detrow a reporter at NPR was at the church, and Green-Timmons didn’t appear nervous at all:
Trump began his brief speech with a joke.
“It used to be cars were made in Flint, and you couldn’t drink the water in Mexico. Now the cars are made in Mexico, and you can’t drink the water in Flint.”
After that, Trump shifted into a version of his now-standard stump speech, blasting free-trade deals like NAFTA, and pointing out that then-President Clinton completed the international trade deal.
As Trump began to criticize his opponent, Hillary Clinton, Green-Timmons slowly walked back onto the stage.
“Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we’ve done for Flint, not to give a political speech,” she said.
“Oh, oh, OK, OK, OK. That’s good,” Trump said. “Then I’m going to go back onto Flint, OK.”
“The audience was saying let him speak, let him speak,” Trump told Fox and Friends.
That isn’t true.
In fact, several audience members began to heckle Trump, asking pointed questions about whether he racially discriminated against black tenants as a landlord.
And that’s when Green-Timmons — who Trump said Thursday had planned to ambush him — stepped in to defend Trump, saying the Republican nominee was “a guest of my church, and you will respect him.”
“Thank you. Thank you, pastor,” Trump responded.
The pointed questions for Trump continued as Trump wrapped up his remarks, though — and that’s the moment when the press traveling with Trump was hastily escorted out of the room.
One really cannot fathom the guy as leader of the free world…
