Seriously, you won’t find many who are more enraged than me at the blatant cronyism that has kept Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most corrupt, coldblooded, ruthless politician in the history of our nation from the extensive prison sentence she so richly deserves.
We are, however, a nation of laws. Because she feels no need to follow them does not release the rest of our government to bend or break those rules, and approval of such makes one a hypocrite.
In other words, we have to regain our composure. Now is not the time to lose our collective minds.
At a rally in Fletcher, North Carolina, Trump again dubbed his opponent “the most corrupt politician ever to seek the office of the presidency,” a charged comment that sparked raucous chants of “lock her up” from his supporters.
The Republican presidential nominee then responded to the chants with an uncharacteristic suggestion, similar to President Barack Obama’s counsel to “don’t boo, vote.”
“Well, let’s do this. Let’s do this,” he advised. “Nov. 8, let’s win. Let’s win. Let’s win.”
But he added: “We win, we have lots of options. But we gotta win.”
He’s right that she’s corrupt. Nobody needed his input for that.
Trump has suggested that he would re-open the investigation into Clinton’s email scandal. Presumably, however, all that he could do at this point is investigate those who have favored her in this matter, and that is already under way.
While his campaign manager tried to walk back his threat to jail Clinton as “a quip,” Trump has doubled down on his pledge.
And, perhaps unfamiliar with how the Supreme Court works, Trump said during the Republican primary he would “probably appoint people that would look very seriously at her email disaster because it’s criminal activity.”
Totally not what the Supreme Court does.
It’s scary to know that we have such an uninformed, bumbling clown as GOP nominee, mostly because this clown was put where he is by large numbers of citizens, who are even less informed, and proudly so.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
These people have hung their hopes on a wall that Trump knows can’t be built, at least to the specifications that he’s suggested.
They believed that he would enact mass deportations, and that he would force businesses to come back to America and punish trade.
They also feel he can lock Hillary up on his own, and none of that is going to happen. Nor should anyone be encouraging him to exert power that is not encompassed in his job description, should he win the White House.
He’s making many wild promises to his base. November 9 is going to be a wake up call for a lot of people.
