Admit it. You saw those two words in the title and knew this post was going to be about Trump.
The Canadians tell it like it is. Here’s a recent documentary from the CBC that gives the outsider perspective on the Trump phenomenon — it’s 42 minutes of horror.
See what I mean? He’s simply the worst.
No, I take that back. Trump could be abducted by a UFO and carried off to a distant galaxy, and the problem would still remain: his supporters. It’s his proudly ignorant gung-ho American racist supporters we should fear. A couple of young men attended a Trump rally, expecting to get a good laugh, and instead they got a sense of nausea.
But out of everything I saw, the crowd was the worst part. I have never seen more hateful people in my life. Everyone was just filled with so much hatred. If a protester had a sign, even the peaceful ones, they would take the sign from them, rip it up, and throw it back at the protesters. Whenever a protester would get removed, the crowd would yell horrible things. Once, after a protester was removed, Trump said, “Where are these people coming from? Who are they?” A lady, sitting not 5 feet from me, said, “Well hopefully when you’re president, you’ll get rid of em all!” Get rid of them? Get rid of anyone who opposes Trump? It was sickening. I felt truly nauseous. And these people loved the protesters. They loved the drama and the chaos. And Trump fed upon it. It was easily one of the strangest and uncomfortable things I’ve ever witnessed. I could just hear the horrible things being spoken around me and it made my skin crawl.
Honestly, I’ll be very afraid, personally concerned for my safety, if Trump were to be elected, and what’s even scarier is that there are people who think it’s good that some American citizens should be frightened.
