The Ghastly Hypocrisy of the Demagogue Donald Trump
I don't know how Donald Trump has managed to restrain himself, and not gloat about Hillary Clinton's bout of pneumonia. It must be really difficult.
Considering what he was tweeting just six days ago.
And how hard he has been trying to portray her as "lying AND dying Hillary Clinton."
Or the way his sicko supporters have been carrying on:
But still that depraved demagogue could not restrain himself from attacking Clinton for daring to call some of those supporters a "basket of deplorables."
Oozing outrage out of every angry orifice, and demanding she apologize or resign.
When in fact is many of Trump's supporters are racist, sexist, homophobic, and xenophobic.
The bully bigots of fascism, and the absolute scum of the earth.
Most American know exactly who and what they are:
And the only reason Trump isn't paying a heavy political price for enabling and encouraging that basket of bigots, is because the big television news networks, and much of the written media, aren't covering the election campaign properly.
Preferring to obsess over Clinton's health or her e-mail fiasco, while ignoring most of Trump's atrocities.
Or obsessing over the Clinton foundation, which does great work all over the world.
Instead of focusing on the real scandal of the Trump foundation, as David A Fahrenthold of the Washington Post has been doing, and exposing it as a charity like no other.
For one thing, nearly all of its money comes from people other than Trump. In tax records, the last gift from Trump was in 2008. Since then, all of the donations have been other people’s money — an arrangement that experts say is almost unheard of for a family foundation.
Trump then takes that money and generally does with it as he pleases. In many cases, he passes it on to other charities, which often are under the impression that it is Trump’s own money.
In two cases, he has used money from his charity to buy himself a gift. In one of those cases — not previously reported — Trump spent $20,000 of money earmarked for charitable purposes to buy a six-foot-tall painting of himself.
Can you believe that chronicle of corruption?
And still that monstrous hoggy hypocrite has the nerve to call Hillary Clinton "crooked?"
When he's the one who belongs in a jail cell...
You know, it surprises and shocks me to still meet Canadians who believe that Trump is America's problem.
When they couldn't be more wrong.
Because if he should become President, Trump would devastate our economy, throw the world into turmoil, extinguish women's and LGBT rights in the U.S, trigger a race war whose bloody fingers would reach over the border, encourage homegrown fascism in this country, torch the planet, and lead us cheerfully into the Third World War.
And we are facing the direst threat to our very existence since the darkest days of the Cold War.
So we must help spread the message of the decent Americans who are fighting him:
Trump is a dangerous, deranged, and corrupt demagogue, who must be defeated before he destroys us all...
