Mandate

Posted by keithosaunders on December 20, 2016

Donald Trump won the popular vote by nearly 3,000,000 votes.  A lot of people have been saying, writing, and tweeting that he has no mandate, but I don’t believe his lack of popular support will effect him one bit.

Trump’s mandate is the fact that he doesn’t care whether or not he has a mandate.  Why should he stop doing what has worked for him?  Think of it – he’s bullet-proof.  He can ridicule handicapped people, have an ex-porn star wife, show admiration for a Russian dictator, admit to grabbing women’s pussies, and refuse to release his tax records.  Nothing can harm this guy!

Fasten your seat belts, folks, we can expect turbulence.

The Trump Tapes: The beginning of the end

Posted by keithosaunders on October 9, 2016

It looks like Trump is finally meeting his waterloo. Not that he had much chance of being elected even before the Trump tapes leaked yesterday.  Now, however, instead of merely losing in a landslide, we have speculation of him bowing out of the race, and it’s a foregone conclusion that his campaign will go down as the most disgraceful in history. (for now)

One wonders why these tapes couldn’t have been leaked before the primaries.  It’s hard not to be cynical.  The media, liberal and conservative alike, have been feeding us 24 hour a day Trump coverage — it has been in their interest to keep him in the race as long as possible.  Did the leaker sit on these tapes knowing he or she would get a better payday in October than in December? For that matter, how much did he make on these tapes?

We didn’t learn anything new from the tapes.  Did anyone actually believe that Trump was a gentleman?  He has spent the better part of his campaign spewing racism, sexism and xenophobia.  It’s not that far of a stretch to imagine him as a sexual predater.  When you look at the feigned shock of Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence,  it’s hard to feel anything other than revulsion.  He has no right to distance himself from Trump.  Especially considering he has all he morality of a hyenna.

The big loser is Ted Cruz.   After endorsing Trump last month, Cruz lost every shread of credibilty he had gained from his speech at the Republican convention in which he pointedly failed to endorse Trump, advising the delegates to “…vote your consience.”  I’m picturing Cruz alone in his house with a 5th of scotch smacking his forehead Chris Farley style while crying, “I’m so stupid!”

Has there ever been a person that looked forward to a debate more than Hillary Clinton is looking forward to tomorrow’s rematch with Trump?  It’s going to take all of her restraint to refrain from opening with her pattented shimmy while exclaiming, “Okay!”
