Great minds inspire us. By basking in the light of genius, we are able to lift ourselves from the mundane existence we have been living and aspire to something greater. We are all warmed by the fire and in turn are able to light our own candle from it. Donald Trump is one such person, and has been the inspiration for a sudden flourishing ideas and observations for this, the 21st installment of Random Thoughts:
What toxic environment do we live in that Donald Trump seems to some like a breath of fresh air?
The media is fond of calling Trump a genius for his ability to get their attention. But it has nothing to do with Trump’s genius—which weighs about as much as Kardashian talent—and everything to do with the media being morally and intellectually bankrupt. You might as well speak of the genius of Honey Boo Boo or the genius of a Jerry Springer show guest.
The absurd reality that Donald Trump might actually be the next president of the United States makes the idea of a third party candidate being elected seem not that far-fetched.
If presidential candidates were required to pass a junior high civics exam, Donald Trump would have been eliminated by now.
Obama has caused divisions among the races, but if we vote for Trump he’ll take care of them.
I feel I’ve never censored myself. Sure, I’ve shown a certain amount of tact and compassion, but I don’t think I’ve shied away from speaking the truth when necessary. I’ve even said a few things that could have been taken the wrong way in my eager desire to speak the truth when it was unpopular. But I’ve never called Mexicans rapists and murderers. I never disrespected prisoners of war or the parents of soldiers who were killed in the service of their country.
Not even in Sodom or Gomorrah did they revere people who forcibly evicted widows in order to build gambling dens.
Donald Trump is not Hitler but that doesn’t mean we can’t draw comparisons where appropriate.
If Trump is not as dumb as he appears, then he is even more evil than he seems.
Should Trump become president we may grow to appreciate just how useful an obstructionist congress can be.
Donald Trump has announced his intention to build a wall against reality and have the elves pay for it.
The media has been so busy reporting that Hillary Clinton is the first female presidential candidate of a major party they have forgotten to mention the Republicans are the first major party to nominate a monkey.
The difference between Donald Trump and Jerry Springer is that Springer has experience in governing.
Donald Trump will never go too far on anything in the eyes of his supporters because lemmings have no concept of what "too far" means.
Vote for Donald Trump or else he’ll go back to contributing to the Clintons.
Imagine for a moment just how unliked Trump is that many Republicans are actually saying they are going to vote for Hillary.
Donald Trump is the William Hung of presidential candidates.
Remember when we thought Dan Quayle was too dumb to be vice-president?
I give it 3 months after Trump is elected before we see his mug up on Mt. Rushmore.
I wouldn’t have believed it possible to have less respect for Scotty Baio than I already had.
What, wasn’t Charlie Sheen available?
Those who think people like Donald Trump shouldn’t be permitted to run the government should really question why we permit people like Donald Trump to run our economy.
Donald Trump is the flower on the plant the Clintons have dutifully watered for decades.
When my son was growing he would often try to justify his bad behavior on the actions of others. I had to constantly tell him there was no excuse for bad behavior. I’m glad I didn’t have to raise him in the era of Donald Trump.
