The Trump Apology - FAIL!

Trump calmly glares into the camera to give an apology to women about his nasty comments that include bragging about wanting to fuck a married woman. Then he said;  
"You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful -- I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait," Trump can be heard saying on the tape.
"And when you’re a star they let you do it... You can do anything."
"Whatever you want," another voice is heard saying.
"Grab them by the pussy," Trump says. "You can do anything."   
When this tape came out Trump brushed it off as "locker room banter." So Wow...he just told American women that all men talk like that when they're with the boys. Really? 
And how many women did he "grab by the pussy?" Does he think his little TV shows give him the right to assault women? If he's done this, I hope those women come forward. They should file sexual assault charges, they don't have to hide. We all see Donald has crude and a bit of a jerk. We'll believe you. 
Then the internet went nutzo! With Republicans abandoning him and morally minded people all over America in an uproar, Trump issued a forced apology.
Kind of looks like a naughty little boy who got caught with his hands in the cookie jar. I guess this is Trump sitting in the "Time Out" chair. 
Another note; He married Melania in January of 2005. He made these crude remarks a few months later. I wonder if Melania is now questioning his loyalty? 
His apology failed for two reasons. First he simply glared into the camera and read the prepared statement. It looked forced. Did Kellyanne make him do it? Second: he turned what was supposed to be an apology to women into an attack on another woman; Hillary. 
Apology Fail!

Clinton Trump Debate Fallout

I know the talking heads on TV have been debating who had the best night at the debate and, depending on which channel you tune to, it could be either Trump or Clinton.

I'd have to go with Clinton for the following reasons;

  1. She remained calm no matter what was thrown at her or how many times Trump interrupted her. 
  2. She stayed on point with her answers. All her answers were direct answers to the questions asked. The woman can focus on issues in spite of the chatter to her right. 
  3. She could explain her plans. There were no "secret" vague plans.
  4. She showed respect for the moderator and even for Trump. She did not interrupt or try to shout over Trump or Holt. 
  5. She wasn't afraid of the fact checkers. In fact, she invited them in. 
Where Trump failed;
  1. What was with the funny faces? Did he not know there was a split screen and he looked like a fourth grade bully mocking his school mates? (apologies to any fourth graders out there)
  2. Could not give direct answers. Donny seemed to talk around the question and always turned it back into an attack. Does he not know his own stance on the issues? 
  3. The shout outs and interrupts. A display of uncontrolled emotions and defensiveness. I found myself wishing they would shut off his mic so others could finish a sentence without his nasty yips. 
  4. Seemed to get more agitated as the night wore on. If Clinton and Holt could cause enough pressure for him to lose control, how would this man fare if faced with life and death negotiations? How could he face off with the leaders of other nations without losing control? 
  5. Fear of facts. Before the debate he refused to allow fact checking during the debate. What was he afraid of? An honest politician should not be afraid of the fact checkers.

Debate one goes to Hillary Clinton. 

Perhaps Donald could take a lesson now and actually prepare for the next debate and stop bragging that he doesn't need to prepare. Evidently he needed something. 

Now, imagine if he was walking into a war room unprepared?

Did Trump get an "F" in Negotiation?

During his recent trip to Mexico, Trump reported that the subject of who was going to pay for his billion dollar wall did not come up.


His biggest campaign promise didn't come up when he went to Mexico? This brings up the question; Did he go there to try to negotiate with Mexico to get them to say they'd pay for his wall?

Makes us wonder if his trip to Mexico was a ploy to show off his "great" negotiation skills right before  his big immigration speech.

And he came back with ... nothing.

So, did he lie to America when he said the subject didn't even come up? The Mexican government said it did and that Trump was told Mexico would not pay for his wall.

Really? Why would they? If Canada said they wanted a wall, would America pay for it? Of course not.

Is Trump lying to American just to save face? Does he consider the American public that stupid? Why would he go to Mexico and not bring up the subject of his infamous wall?

If he tries to build the wall the American tax payers will be stuck with the billion dollar bill and he can't admit that, can he?

Who believes the subject just didn't come up???

Will Trump Deport Grandma???

Trump's harsh immigration policy has too many repercussions he's not acknowledging. Like an angry little boy with is head buried in the sand, Trump forgets he's talking about splitting up good, hard working families.

Let's see the honest immigrant who either overstayed their visa or maybe did come in illegally years ago.

Now's she's a grandma. Her children and grandchildren were born here. She
worked hard her whole life just to give her kids a good live. Now they're  contributing members of society. They go to church, work honest jobs, come home and help the kids with their homework.

Trump gets into office and rips this sweet grandma from the only home she's known for the last 40 years and sends her back to country where she knows no one and has no ties. What happens to Grandma?

How many families will be ripped apart by Trump's unrealistic view of immigrants?

Drug dealers? Criminals? Ask Trump what he's going to do about the drug dealers and criminals that are American citizens. Does he have an answer for that one?

GOP: Grand Old "Puppets"?

The Republican party seems to have disappeared. Their conservative values are being ridiculed every time their chosen candidate, Donald Trump, opens his mouth. Its almost like the GOP is endorsing  an uninformed fourth grade bully for the highest office in the land.

Republicans everywhere have to ask themselves, "Do we want a President of Negativity?" A man who spews hatred and stoops to name calling when when he doesn't have the verbal skills to express himself any other way?

Some say the media is behind the popularity of Trump, but really, isn't it like watching a car wreck? Everyone watches, cringes, and maybe says a prayer? When someone representing the adults in the room shows a lack of maturity and basic knowledge of world events, it kind of is news. GOP, the world is laughing at you. Your standing has dropped from powerful party, to a bunch of puppets manipulated by a spoiled little man-baby.

And you better watch out. Dare to speak the truth and you'll be dubbed with a nickname of ridicule, because that's what fourth grade bullies do. They call people names, spew lies and work hard to intimidate. Dare to stand up and he'll slap you down again. The GOP no longer looks like strong leaders, instead they're being trampled upon by the bully in the room.

God Stands with Orlando

I was raised an Irish Catholic. In case you don't know, there is no stronger Catholic, than an Irish Catholic. More time is spent in mass, catechism, and other church functions than anywhere else in your existence. In adulthood, I've drifted away from organized religion due to one crazy/mean priest. I still believe in God, a higher power that is all about love.

One of the first things I learned in Catholic school was, "God made me, God made everyone."

So simple. A basis for everything in life. If God made it, we should always respect it. The earth, the animals, and, of course, people. 

So, if it's true that God made me, God made everyone, Then God made people gay. He wanted people to be hetero and gay. Just like he wanted people to be all colors. There is beauty in diversity. He created everything. 

I don't believe God created hate. 
Hate is a message from the devil. Like the little demon in the red horns and pointy tail, hate sits there waiting for you to give in to peer pressure and take it by the hand. Hate loves to drag people along and make them do and say stupid things. Making fun of someone because of their race, sexual preference, or religion is hate. Ugly, dirty hate. And it will drag you into the mud with it. 

If you believe God is hate, I think the devil has you snowballed. Like certain politicians, they think if they yell it loud enough, the weak will follow. 

Don't be weak. Know God is love, only love. Love the world and the people and rejoice in the diversity we have been gifted with in this life.
