Perhaps one of the greatest quotes from literature to have ever summarized a celeb’s fame is one from Oscar Wilde, used in “The Picture of Dorian Gray:”
“There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.”
On Monday, Oct. 24, the New York Times published two pages of Donald Trump’s tweets since he started his campaign. Even better: every comment is linked to a URL, as if you could really make this stuff up.
Audrey (last names omitted) commented, “Remind me again why we think a 70 year old man who insults people on Twitter will make a good president?”
“It is very difficult to explain to my middle school students that cyber bullying is unacceptable when this seems to be the norm with a presidential candidate,” one school teacher regarding Donald Trump’s frequent Twitter insults said.
And a sympathetic man by the name of Kalem commented, “My fellow Americans who support Donald Trump, do not let these type of articles get to you. Just get out and vote. Vote on November 28th.”
A theme of repetition could be easily observed, and countless words were repeated because Trump’s campaign manager couldn’t afford the internet service needed to log into Thesaurus.com. Among the most repeated terms were: “fail,””failed,”and “failing” at 115 times and the word “crooked” 201 times.
But there’s something mesmerizing about Donald Trump, his stupidity, and the fact that nearly half the country was in favor of him before the Access Hollywood bus tape was released.
The reality is, Donald is a ruthless fascist who is the epitome of everything wrong with the falsehood thinking some people have about the USA. His mindset will literally put us back to the 1950’s: The Defense of Marriage act would be repealed, police officers could do search and frisk on whoever would be considered “suspicious.” Not to mention people with disorders and handicaps would literally be ridiculed for simply being born differently.
Donald is also the Urban Dictionary’s definition of a Frat Boy: “A college kid who thinks he’s better than everyone else because he is in a fraternity. Some college kids are frat boys even though they aren’t in a fraternity. Frat boy behaviour is typified by drinking shitty beer, hitting on high school girls, making fun of punks, and wearing boring clothes.”
He think’s he’s the greatest man ever, when it’s quite the opposite.
A vote for Trump is a vote for the downfall of this country. And the last thing we need is to step backwards when we’ve done so much last century to move forward.
