Well, it’s past the obvious that anyone who still supports Donald Trump puts absolutely no value of the concepts of telling the truth, respecting your peers, or paying your taxes. If they did, they would certainly not support a man for President of the United States like Donald J. Trump.
Just this last week, it’s pretty much confirmed, as The Donald loves to say, that the following is true of this make-believe presidential candidate:
Trump is a fraud because he founded his campaign on the idea that President Obama wasn’t really born in the United States, a mantra he repeated incessantly for the last eight years and now, just a little over a month before the election, he has announced to the world that Obama was, in fact, born in the United States. In other words, now that he’s fooled his supporters, he knows he needs others to join his campaign to win, so he’s ditched the whole point of his campaign.
Trump is a racist because his entire campaign, which started with the Birther conspiracy about Obama, was followed up with the idea we need to build a wall to keep Mexicans out of our country and to not allow any Muslims into it, either. That’s about racist as it gets, and of course, he was just warming up with those two classic hits.
Trump is a tax cheat because we know for a fact the earliest record of Trump’s publicly-revealed income tax information dates to the late 1970s, when Trump paid no federal income tax for at least two years. Trump’s tax returns, examined by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission in 1981, showed that he paid $0 in federal income taxes in 1978 and 1979, The Washington Post found. And of course, Trump won’t release his more recent returns, because according to his son, Don Jr., they would be just too complicated for the average voter to understand.
OK, this is just enough nonsense from a man who wants to run the free world and hold the nuclear codes in the palm of his hand. And it really has become a time of ‘shut up or put up’ for not only his general supporters, but for those in Congress and others with political power.
Do you love what America has always stood for, or do you love your job/political party much more?
