We’re all thinking it: Why would anyone vote for Donald Trump?
It all seemed like a joke when he began his campaign, but the joke’s over now. The election is getting closer and closer, and we need to come to terms with it.
Donald Trump might actually be our new president.
It seems ridiculous. He’s racist, misogynistic and for heaven’s sake he’s orange.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be alive for the first orange president.
He has plans to put up a wall to keep people out, and he wants to make a test for Muslim’s and may not let them stay in the country. It will turn into a dictatorship.
But there has to be a reason he is so popular.
The Washington Post did some investigating. They interviewed several Trump supporters and asked why they are planning on voting for him.
“He’s an asshole, but at least he’s honest, and isn’t really into bullshitting people. Besides, I don’t want a third Bush or a second Clinton in office anyway. The presidency is not a hereditary monarchy.”
Okay. Yes. He’s honest. He sticks to his guns. He says what’s on his mind, and people appreciate that.
But sometimes what’s on his mind is that he would date his own daughter if she weren’t related to him. Just saying.
A website called Quora did a similar article to the Post’s, only they gave reasons not to vote for Trump.
“He has zero legislative or executive political experience. As in none whatsoever. The president of the United States is a highly political position, which involves both executive control and having to deal with the legislative branch. Trump would be unique among modern presidents if elected because he has absolutely no experience in either of the two main skills required for the job.”
That doesn’t seem to matter to many people, though.
Putting aside the fact that he may ruin this entire country with his pure lack of experience in any kind of political position, he is simply not a nice person. Trump literally throws people out of his rallies if they are not in support of him.
Wouldn’t a smart man take that opportunity to try to persuade those who don’t like him?
Instead, he pushes them further in the other direction. He is stubborn, mean, and just outright cruel to anyone who disagrees with him.
Sound familiar? *cough cough Hitler*
So who knows what will happen in November, but I know what will happen after he’s sworn in.
I’ll be climbing over that brand new wall and living in sunny Mexico.
