MOURNING IN AMERICA
As the reality struck millions, some of us are having a hard time getting out of bed while others seem to want to make her the excuse for his winning.
WELL THE BOTTOM DROPPED OUT for a lot of people, and the streets are filled with terrified individuals who are beginning to resemble the Arab Spring of a few years back. So far for the most part, it hasn’t been violent and police are letting thousands of the disillusioned get some of their terror and outrage out. Of course, once there's a Trump in the White House, if it happens (I’m still fantasizing that something occurs and someone else puts her hand on the Bible on Inauguration Day), the people letting the people vent could be replaced by the military and those protesting could face the real anger of the Donald, and it could real real fast.
I was speaking to a young lady, who it turns out didn’t vote. A New Yorker, so honestly her vote this past Tuesday wouldn’t have changed the outcome on Election Day, since Hillary won New York. But her answer to me why she didn’t did open my eyes to one of the main reasons Trump won. She didn’t believe Donald was gonna do any of the stuff he pitched in his winning con. She didn’t believe he had the power to deport millions of illegal immigrants. She just simply didn’t believe. She also thought Donald’s daughter Ivanka was wonderful and didn’t seem to know anything about her except perhaps what she had seen at the RNC or what she’s read in all those fluff pieces floating out there.
Lastly as the names are being announced who Donald will be surrounding himself in his cabinet, each one seems to be scarier then the one before, including Steve Bannon of course. But today I had a great laugh, Ben Carson, this years chief clown in the race for the Republican nomination. Of course calling him a clown is sort of redundant when you discuss any of the menagerie of candidates that blessed us in the Republican party. But Ben Carson, announced today that he wouldn't be accepting a cabinet position in the Trump White House. Hysterically the man came out today and said that he didn't know enough about government to accept any offer. But, didn't he run for President? Maybe like Trump, the game for him was winning the prize, not actually doing the job.
Just one man's opinion
