Own It, GOP: President Pussy Grabber Is Your Daddy (Warning- Contains Explicit Language)

There are a great many issues that are painfully frustrating about the election cycle of 2016. First and foremost, the good guys lost and the bad guys won. You can tell by the energy that followed the returns. Barack Obama’s victory brought joy to his supporters. Trump’s supporters demonstrated bitterness and anger even in victory. Obama won by coalition building. Trump won by promising to kick identifiable religious and racial minorities out of the country. By virtue of the character of the campaign and by every other objective measure, Hillary Clinton is a better human being than Donald Trump. The full verifiable record of the campaign reflects the veracity of that statement. Of course, you have to exclude from that record the fake news stories infecting the public discourse; those stories that can only influence the unread, unexposed and unsophisticated (and if you believe that the Clintons are mass murderers or drug dealers then count yourself in that number and get your stupid ass off my blog immediately). Unfortunately, not enough engaged and informed voters participated where necessary to keep the nation from embarrassing itself on the world stage by hiring a man for its top job who is manifestly unqualified and unfit to hold it- while a perfectly capable and qualified woman stood prepared to serve in that capacity. Leave it to Americans to ditch the rule book entirely at precisely the moment in time when a woman might actually seize the ultimate levers of power and influence. All at once, everything that used to be required for candidates running for president became optional. That fact alone is enough for us to feel ashamed of ourselves as a nation and a culture.

We could have finally had a woman at the helm of our ship and caught up with the rest of the civilized world. Instead we elected President Pussy Grabber- our first (and hopefully last) Commander in Tweet, who never saw a Twitter beef he didn’t want a slice of. We now have a president whose finances are almost entirely a mystery- and he was elected ostensibly on the basis of those finances and the alleged skill it took him to marshal them. Moreover, we elected a president who has never served this country or his fellow citizens a single day in his entire life- nor has anyone in his entire family tree, from the root to the fruit. Not his father, grandfather, uncle, or even one of his sons. Service to country is not a part of his family culture or personal ethos- a first for a man elected president.

Worst of all, we have now elected a president that white supremacists openly campaigned for, raised money for, formally endorsed and now celebrate exuberantly for. All of this is humiliating enough for a nation that supposedly reveres and rewards people for demonstrating exceptional class and dignity. And we have yet to address the undeniably peculiar case of Donald Trump’s third and current wife. Despite the lustful tongue wagging of the geriatric horn-dogs on cable news, she does not help to clean up his image or elevate his value amongst anyone who wasn’t already a Trump acolyte. Frankly, amongst those who are not seduced by Trump’s siren song, her voice and presentation are anything but an attribute. Objectively speaking, her public utterances are cringe-worthy in their vapid delivery and hollow superficiality.

To be clear, I do not really mind the nude pictures of her that are viewable on-demand through any basic web search- that was her profession and her life choice- but I do mind that she made false claims on her resume about her education right up until the time that her husband became his party’s nominee and her lie was discovered. I am not that upset about her embarrassing plagiarism of a famous Michelle Obama speech- but I am very off-put by her attacking women for speaking out about her husband’s rapey conduct toward them after he was exposed on a hot mic bragging about it. So even though the first lady is a purely ceremonial role, it is an important one. And by every indication this retired panty model is not up to it- unless the new standard to uphold is having a photo portfolio that teenage boys will pleasure themselves to for years to come. My God, just imagine the reaction if Michelle Obama had ever taken pictures with her ass cheeks exposed, lied about having a college degree, or plagiarized a speech. It is not difficult to see any one of these issues being a deal breaking scandal for Mrs. Obama, but all three is unfathomable.

But even that isn’t the most exasperating aspect of this election debacle. The very worst part of it all is watching the people who worked to elect this guy or who openly admit voting for this guy, deny all of the embarrassing but indisputable facts above. Trump Nation, do the country a favor and just own up to what you did. The campaign your candidate ran excited and encouraged racists across the country- and you were right there with them- whether you were beating the drum, marching in the parade or just watching it quietly- you were there. Own the fact that you voted for the same candidate that gave aid and comfort to David Duke. But don’t stop there- own the fact that your candidate loves to publically fight with actresses, models and beauty queens; insulting women is a favored past-time for your guy. Own the fact that your candidate thinks the National Enquirer is a legitimate news source and repeats every fake news story that shows up on the internet as if it were the gospel truth. During this campaign, Trump lied so often that the fact checkers could barely keep up; sometimes it seemed like the guy lost track of his own statement before he even finished his sentence. (The man is 70 years old, so I wonder if anyone considered the possibility that he could be suffering from the early stages of dementia. But I digress.) And on the subject of embracing stupidity, Trumpists need to own the fact that their candidate trafficked in the racist and ridiculous “Birther Conspiracy” all the way up until a month before he was elected. If that doesn’t embarrass them then there simply is no embarrassing them. And the next time one of them starts loading up a canned statement about family values or personal responsibility, they need to own the fact that they voted for a candidate who has had multiple bankruptcies, multiple wives, and multiple lawsuits filed against him for fraud. And lastly, Trump worshipers, own the fact that your candidate started off the campaign with orangutan orange hair and ended it as a bleach-blond bombshell- removing any doubt that he is equal parts television diva and circus clown. Hillary Clinton’s most ardent supporters are not just embarrassed that she lost. They are embarrassed for our nation that Trump won. And we ALL have to own that.
