Apparently, President-Elect Donald Trump really didn’t like the fact that while Time magazine just named him ‘Person of the Year,’ they also referred to him as the president-elect of the ‘divided states of America.’
So, of course, let the Twittering and complaining begin. Trump claims he has done nothing to ‘divide’ America.
To that I say, ‘Oh, really?!’
Let’s review some of his biggest hits of the campaign season, but before we do, let’s remind one Donald J. Trump that when you put up walls, you are, by definition, dividing.
On to the classics, as reported by The Independent:
-“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” (Campaign Launch 2015)
-“I mean, we could say politically correct that look doesn’t matter, but the look obviously matters… like you wouldn’t have your job if you weren’t beautiful.”(The Strip View 2014)
-“If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?” (Twitter, 2015 – later deleted)
-“Donald J Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States, until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.” (2015)
-“I would bring back waterboarding and I’d bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding.” Republican Presidential Debate, ABC News 2016)
-If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her (The View, 2006)
There are so many more, but to be honest, if I continue down that path any longer, I will probably find myself choking on my own vomit, so let’s just leave it at that.
Bottom line, Trump is a spoiled, entitled abuser of anyone who slights him and the idea that he will soon have his little fingers on the nuclear keypad should frighten us all.
