Now that he is no longer President of the United States, I wanted to share an unposted blog from 2016. At the time, I did not want to get into the US election because I did not want to taint my website with his name. I believed at the time that he would become president and I wanted nothing to do with this showboat and entertainer. Now that he is not the leader of the free world, here is the blog.
(5/27/2016) – I have not paid much attention to the presidential race in the United States but of course I have heard of Donald Trump from the Marla Maples and Ivana Trump controversies from way, way back in the late 80s. I also heard of Trump because of his association with Vince McMahon and the WWE (then WWF) and as a big wrestling fan who enjoys larger than life characters, I thought Trump looked completely at home in a circus.
It wasn’t until I heard of and read on my wall feed on Facebook of Mr. Trump using “the word Pocahontas to describe a United States senator” (cbc.ca). What has this world come to that a man trying to become President of the United States refers to a woman who is partly First Nation, Pocahontas? I have heard and read about how bad this man is and keep hearing how he is an ignorant bigot who is preying on the simplest of fears of mainstream America to get attention.
To me, Donald Trump is a ringmaster in a circus. He is all about ego and fear mongering on the dangers of other races besides his own. I do not know much about Hillary Clinton, other than she is the wife of Bill Clinton but, she has to be the lesser of two evils when it comes to politics and how it will affect the rest of the world.
While I do not condone the use of a “race card” from non-whites, I do believe situations will be presenting themselves where non-whites may have to defend themselves somehow from outright discrimination from Mr. Trump. Of course it stands to reason that many whites may decide to pull out their “Trump” cards wherein they are allowed to discriminate against others.
