Continuing my unrequited letter writing campaign to Donald Trump (caution: my language here can get a bit coarse at times):
Hello Donald (or, if I might, in your own vein, call you Dunkin Donut Don, mocking your ample girth), I hear you’re hunkering down in the White House basement/bunker, feeling safe as a bug in a rug, comfy as a rat in a dumpster, and frisky as one of your cult members who hasn’t been laid in a month of Sundays. I know, it’s tough being el presidente’, or as your followers call you, Our Dear Leader, after your bud in North Korea. All those pesky decisions, meetings, keeping your hair in order and well-sprayed, making sure enough donuts have been ordered for the day, along with all the whoppers, Big Macs, fries, and shakes that need to be sorted and delivered…on time.

But this time, with the advent of ISIS cutting off the heads of anyone they captured, and refugees from the war-torn Middle East and Africa pouring into Europe like the ancients did out of Africa thousands of years ago, the voting public was scared and highly protective of anything like that happening here. Hillary won the popular vote, but enough Rust and Bible Belt Americans voted for Trump, especially after FBI Director Comey opened another investigation into Clinton’s email that were now connected to sex-texter Anthony Weiner, ex-husband of one of Clinton’s closest advisors, Huma Abedin. Fake news on social media perpetrated by the Russian government, seeing a way to cyber-muscle past its enemies’ defenses, then opened up a small hole in the front line for the fascist fullback Trump to squeeze through.
In addition, 10 per cent of Bernie Sanders progressives voted for Trump (as a recent research study shows), and a significant number of Sanders loyalists [Read more…] about We Now Have a Fascist in the White House
