Lock him up!
I was on the phone with my best friend from high school (I am almost 62 so we have been friends a long time) talking about how in the world anyone could still be supporting Trump when she said her significant other LOVES Trump. I asked why, and she explained he doesnít like the man but he likes his policies.
I asked what policies are those and clicked off: Putting babies in cages? The Muslim Ban? Dismantling the EPA and denying climate change so corporate-owned factories are free to spew filth into our air and water? Supporting a tax scam that gives billions of dollars to the richest Americans while eliminating support for the middle class and poor including massive cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, all of which Trump promised to leave untouched?
Starting a trade war that lowers our standard of living by, as our Sen. Ben Sasse said this week on PBS, suppressing trade which hurts our farmers and ranchers?
Supporting voter fraud and suppression for political gain, including siding with Russia who hacked our electoral process in an attack on our country not to mention knocking our allies and siding with Russia in a traitorous relationship with a murderous dictator? I could have gone on and on.
Her boyfriend is a nice, intelligent fellow, so I canít understand his support for Trump whose vile, lying, repugnant, ignorant ways are quickly destroying what democracy we have in the USA. I presume he watches Fox News which, studies show, leaves its audience more poorly informed than people who watch no news at all because they are so misinformed.
All I can figure about our politically divided nation is itís like the Yanny/Laurel phenomenon where some people hear Yanny and others hear Laurel. I canít hear either right now because theyíre both drowned out by the megaphone-loud chant LOCK HIM UP!
