Who on Earth Likes Trump?

 

Who are those people who cheered for Trump at the CPAC conference? Who are those “likely voters” who gave him a 50 percent approval rating in the latest Rasmussen poll? Are they really Americans? Or Russians who infiltrated our political system?

Actually, they must be from outer space, as even Russians should know by now what a rascal Trump is. Even Melania won’t hold his hand (photo).

I am isolated here on Post Lane in the wilds of Florida, but surely I would have met one of those Trump loving Americans if they exist? Of course, if I knew anyone like that, I would avoid them as much as possible.  I don’t need the aggravation.

I try to be a reasonable human being who tolerates, even encourages, disagreement. Like Voltaire, while I might not like someone’s opinion, I would defend their right to express it.

I deplore quarrelsome and contentious situations and I try very hard to heed King Solomon’s advice that “a soft answer turneth away wrath.”

But when it somes to Trump and his ilk, I’m afraid it’s impossible to stay calm.

Vulgar, lying, cheating , racist Trump and sanctimonious, intolerant, racist Mike Pence. What a duo!

They stand for everything on earth that I despise.

If half of the people in America really approve of them, I fear for the nation’s future.
