I spent yesterday lying around. Taking things slow. Concerned about my health. Probably not that bad. In my head. But, that’s me.
As a result of a do nothing sunday, I have no Key West goodies to share. Today, a political blog.
The Presidential campaign makes me ask whether this is my country? Your country? Our country? It is so different. Destructive. Sick.
Is democracy so fragile? I would not have believed it. Disagree, yes. Threaten violence and move to violence, no.
Gabriel Schoenfeld shared some thoughts re Trump this weekend in the New York Daily News.
He referred to Trump as a moronic Pied Piper. Hard to argue with. Many are blindly following Trump.
Schoenfeld stated our democracy is fragile.
Further and most scary, as Trump’s campaign flails, the violence and threads of violence multiply by the day. Bloodshed possible/probable.
Bloodshed, a heavy word.
Saturday night, a local Republican headquarters in Hillsborough, North Carolina was firebombed. The headquarters was also spray painted with a swastika and the words: Nazi Republicans leave town or else.
Trump responded to the event with a tweet stating the event was perpetrated by…..Animals supporting Clinton.
I find it hard to believe the event was Democrat caused. Hillsborough and the county it is a part of is 3-1 Democratic registration.I sense a set up by Republican supporters creating a situation to blame the Democrats for.
I could be wrong. It is a gut feeling.
Trump tweeted re Saturday Night Live yesterday morning. He is now anti SNL. He has lost his sense of humor.
He referred to SNL as a “hit job.” Said it was “time to retire the show.” Finally, Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of him “stinks.”
Sensitive! He can hand it out, but cannot take it.
That is all for this morning. Enjoy your day!
