Donald Trump, the Anti-Lincoln, and the Nightmarish Election

There are now only sixteen days to go before the U.S. election, but they promise to be   some of the scariest days of our lives. 

For Donald Trump and his Trumplings are still a nightmare in progress.

And there was Trump yesterday, on what he called the "hollowed ground" of Gettysburg.

Where the great Abraham Lincoln so famously tried to heal the wounds of a nation.

Delivering the anti-Gettysburg address.

And sounding like a maniac again.

“Either we win this election or we lose the country. And believe me, this is the last time we are going to have a chance to win. This is it, folks. This is it.”

Vowing to go after those who have accused him of acting like a sexual predator.

"Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign," Trump said during remarks in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. "Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over."

And most alarmingly, still claiming he will win. Even though most polls show his support tanking, and his chances of winning slender to nonexistent. 

But then maybe he knows something we don't. And that massive internet hack was just a rehearsal for election day...

Because even though most cyber experts say an election can't be hacked, when Wikileaks that is doing its best to elect Trump speaks, we can't lightly dismiss that message from Moscow.

And when Julian Assange is now the hero of the former Klan leader David Duke...

You know anything could happen.

And it must be said that Trump's basket of deplorables still think he can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat...

And you know what they're like...

Just ask this Republican what happened when he dared defy Trump, and his flying alt-right monkeys came after him and his family. 

I saw images of my daughter’s face in gas chambers, with a smiling Trump in a Nazi uniform preparing to press a button and kill her. I saw her face photo-shopped into images of slaves. She was called a “niglet” and a “dindu.” The alt-right unleashed on my wife, Nancy, claiming that she had slept with black men while I was deployed to Iraq, and that I loved to watch while she had sex with “black bucks.” People sent her pornographic images of black men having sex with white women, with someone photoshopped to look like me, watching. 

So it is a Stephen King horror story... 

And the good news? Most polls show Hillary Clinton leading, with a huge lead in the electoral college. Trump is five points behind where Mitt Romney was at this stage in the campaign. And you know what happened to him.

And the only thing that could threaten Clinton's margin of victory is if some of Bernie Sanders' supporters, annoyed by the Wikileak's e-mails, decide not to vote or write-in Sanders' name on their ballots. 

Which would be the electoral equivalent of throwing this bottle...

But luckily Bernie is doing his best to urge them to vote for the future...

So I'm pretty confident the future will prevail, and the monstrous demagogue, the anti-Lincoln, will be defeated...

But just in case, if you see this beggar be sure to slip him a buck...

Because every vote will count.

And the next sixteen days will indeed be some of the scariest days of our lives...


  1. ... and i thought that going after people's families for political reasons was own only to communist regimes (over twenty years of personal experience here)... kinda situates the russian presence little more precisely in this sleazy election, eh?

    1. hi Luce...yes that's a horrifying story isn't it? The way they portrayed his daughter is simply beyond belief, beyond the limits of decency. But believe me, the alt-right internet is overflowing with so much disgusting stuff I can't even publish....

  2. Simon attacking Wikileaks, I think you may have Trump derangement syndrome. First there is no proof the Russians are behind Wikileaks. It most likely an internal matter within the DNC from people that actually know and work with Hillary. BTW one of these guys Assand illuded was murdered. Secondly Putin is far to smart to interfere with a US election, its a no win for him. Third even if it is the Russians I am shocked you are going to carry for Hilary with the ridiculous argument that the truth is not important if you get it from a bad place.

    1. So these 17 US intelligence agencies are all lying?

    2. the Coast Guard, really. Pure politics no evidence

    3. hi Steve... Trump Derangement Syndrome? Can you be deranged about a man who is clearly deranged? And I've always been told I suffered from Harper Derangement Syndrome. Whew what a relief. Oh wait...
      But seriously Steve, those Wikileaks are coming from the Russian tool Julian Assange, there's absolutely nothing really damaging in them, and they won't save your man Trump....

  3. Simon, Susan Sarandon is for Trump, how do you not respect that opinion?

    1. Back in June, Susan Sarandon was a supporter of Bernie Sanders:

      She said in the MSNBC interview that Clinton has been "caught in so many lies".

      This was before Saunders lost the Democratic nomination and before all these women came forward with sexual assault allegations.

      Steve: What is your evidence that Susan Sarandon is for Trump?

    2. No ... she isn't.


    4. hi Steve... I'm afraid our facts are wrong. Again. *Sigh* While it's true that Susan Sarandon did say that Hillary Clinton was more dangerous than Trump, she has since said that she wouldn't vote for Trump either. And as David points out, that was BEFORE all those woman came forward to portray Trump as a sexual predator..

  4. CNN Has A Trump Surrogate Problem
