It’s time for straight talk about this election and about the real meaning of Donald Trump. He’s an egomaniac, a loudmouth, a braggart, a liar, a misogynist, a self-confessed sex addict, a narcissistic con artist, and a shameless self-contradicting, self-promoting reprobate with the moral integrity of a tapeworm, not to mention that goofy thing on his head. So what’s new?
If we can’t get past – or see through – Donald Trump the person, we’re toast as a society. a country, or, for that matter, as part of the known world. The media and much of the public treats Trump as a cuddly curiosity, an aberrant Teddy Bear, or, alternatively, as a bolt out of the blue: Wow, we sure didn’t see THAT coming.
He’s the best show in town, a source of endless amusement, entertainment, and quotable quotes. The media moguls love it and gleefully give him more free face time than other candidates can afford to buy at the rate of $35,000-$200,000 for 30 seconds of primetime air.
Trump doesn’t deal in facts; he deals strictly in self-serving distortions of reality. He’s not the only one who does it, but he’s better at it than all the others in the field – the field in this case being the current political arena. The ones who don’t’ play by Donald’s rules are either bullied and booed out of game or named Hillary Clinton.
The party that invented the no-compromise, take-no-prisoners, greed-is-good, gridlock-inducing, antediluvian, phony “family values” conservatism are the very ones who created the flop-haired Frankenstein they can’t control. Therein lies the real truth of the 2016 presidential campaign.
