More than DT being completely unaware of middle-class needs, he has become the Sarah Palin for 2012, and he’s cashing in on fear-mongers. Unfortunately, he’s not nearly as attractive as Palin, which means that I no longer have any excuse to listen to him on T.V. What makes Palin different from Trump is that she had John McCain on her side. On Trump’s? Well, if the GOP is smart, they won’t legitimize him by giving him undue recognition. We saw what happened for McCain and the GOP.
Then again, you never know.
No matter how you think President Obama has executed his job, whether you agree with his policy decisions or not, he has given the Executive Office a reputation worth being proud of. He has carried himself with a sense of understanding, and at times remarkable sensitivity. While he makes more money than me, I know that he understands the Middle Class realities that many Americans live everyday. Obama also recognizes the plight of the poor within the American landscape.
Donald Trump doesn’t get that, and won’t. You can’t reason with him. We are facing a time within the American narrative that demands refreshing the democratic experiment. Democracy functions best when you have a well-educated populace, economic stability, social programs that care for all citizens, and participating in government is possible and accessible. Donald Trump doesn’t care for the least of these.
Quite frankly, he doesn’t care for me, and it’s not because I’m young, progressive, theological, but because I’m not in his economic strata, I don’t name skyscrapers after myself. I pay the bills, go to school, hope to influence my community, and make a greater contribution to my community. Trump and his toupee will never, and I really mean it, understand that we are all implicated in this democratic experiment, and that means governing in the interest of all people, not the select few.
