I’m a lifelong voter and at the age of 73 I’ve discovered that we now have America’s first, and hopefully last, fake president, Donald Trump. What has the modern age wrought? I and likely a majority of Americans now realize that we have spent too much of our precious time worrying about moving up to that second car, vacation home, newest gadget or, for many others, just a job that allows us to survive day to day by working hard.
At some point, we lost our own moral compass and the ability to focus upon our collective reality. Instead, too many of us were caught up in a never-ending for-TV-only reality show performed daily by Trump. Everyone makes mistakes in life, but unlike electing Trump most mistakes are easily recovered from and rarely harm others.
Now, we must suffer through four years with a president who has no moral compass, doesn’t believe in science and is bereft of history. Clearly, Trump was raised in a rarified “it’s all about me” atmosphere and does not play well with others. Trump is a real threat to our existence because he cannot control his ego and has a penchant to threaten others who dare oppose him.
Hillary Clinton was correct when she asked us if this is the man we want to have our nuclear codes. She should have also asked if we were willing to elect an un-American president. Cleary the majority of voters were not, but that’s no longer up for debate.
