'The Atlantic'..Trump is spectacularly unfit for office!


Recommended Posts

His affect is that of an infomercial huckster; he traffics in conspiracy theories and racist invective; he is appallingly sexist; he is erratic, secretive, and xenophobic; he expresses admiration for authoritarian rulers, and evinces authoritarian tendencies himself. He is easily goaded, a poor quality for someone seeking control of Americas nuclear arsenal. He is an enemy of fact-based discourse; he is ignorant of, and indifferent to, the Constitution; he appears not to read.

 

 

In one of the more sordid episodes in modern American politics, Trump made himself the face of the so-called birther movement, which had as its immediate goal the demonization of the countrys first African American president. Trumps larger goal, it seemed, was to stoke fear among white Americans of dark-skinned foreigners. He succeeded wildly in this; the fear he has aroused has brought him one step away from the presidency.

 

Our endorsement of Clinton, and rejection of Trump, is not a blanket dismissal of the many Trump supporters who are motivated by legitimate anxieties about their future and their place in the American economy. But Trump has seized on these anxieties and inflamed and racialized them, without proposing realistic policies to address them.

 

Trump is not a man of ideas. He is a demagogue, a xenophobe, a sexist, a know-nothing, and a liar. He is spectacularly unfit for office, and votersthe statesmen and thinkers of the ballot boxshould act in defense of American democracy and elect his opponent.

Exactly right! Trump will not make America Great. He will simply try to make himself richer, and will make us sorry that we ever heard the name TRUMP.

It was a clever move for Trump to get the nomination. If he loses, he will still be able to make a fortune off of his celebrity, and reporters will come to him constantly to report his idiotic opinions. He loves being in the spotlight.

 

Should he win, I hope Michelle hides the good silver and china, because Trump is a thief.
