We’ve got less than an hour and the time I started writing this, so I’ll make this quick.
This has been one hell of a roller coaster. The primaries were insane. The general election was insane. Election night was something else entirely. The post-election response was unprecedented and unruly. And the path from election night to inauguration day has been anything but a peaceful transition of power.
I want to rattle off some quick points before Trump takes the oath.
Building a wall is not racist. America is our home. I have a home, and my home has a fence around the property line between my house and my neighbors’ house. It’s not racist. It’s intended to keep people out who don’t have permission to be on my property. A wall around a country is no different. And let’s not forget that we already have a large metal fence on the southern border which is traversed regularly.
Trump talked about people coming over the border and raping and killing. And he was right. Do ALL of them rape? No. Did Trump say that ALL of them rape? No. So what’s the big deal? We know for fact people come into this country illegally through Mexico from Mexico and other countries in Central and South America. Do we know that some of the people here illegally and raped and/or murdered Americans? Yes we do. So again, these remarks from Trump weren’t racist. They were factual.
Talking crap about some women is not the same as thinking all women are inferior. A lot of people have made the claim that Trump is a sexist because he’s called some women disgusting, or other insults. Again, saying that about one woman, or multiple individual women, is not the same as an insult against all women.
Yeah, the grabbing a pussy remark was raunchy. But I find the outrage from the left more than comical considering all the filthy, raunchy, overtly sexual stuff peddled by liberals in the cinematic and television industry. Lefties chide conservatives and religions people for being too prudish, to sexual reserved, no sterile. So it’s rich that the residents of New Sodom are taken aback by someone talking about sexually groping someone. Also, the context amazingly enough, does matter. Anyone with half a brain knows Trump doesn’t (or didn’t mean that he) walks around town and grabs women’s crotches at Starbucks. But a billionaire party boy like him probably hung out in circles and parties where that kind of stuff wouldn’t have been out of the norm. If you went to a swingers party or one of those filthy nightclubs in Vegas, doing certain things there might be perfectly normal whereas they would be taboo and entirely unacceptable in public.
Clinton Losing and the Blame Game
The Democrats lost, but instead of simply conceding, they have blamed nearly everything under the sun. To name a few, they blamed:
- Media Bias (that’s rich coming from Democrats)
- James Comey and the FBI
- Julian Assange and Wikileaks
- Huma Abedin
- Bill Clinton
- And finally, Russia though there has been no concrete proof this happened
They have blamed everyone but themselves for picking a politician that the majority of Americans on both sides of the political aisle consider to be corrupt and dishonest. They never stopped to blame the Democrat establishment for choosing their candidate, and running a horrible campaign. Clinton took for granted blue states and assumed she had their votes in the bag. That arrogance cost her marginalized voters in blue states that had been hit economically.
It’s childish for so many Democrats in office to not attend the inauguration. Do they have the right to do it? Yeah, duh. But is it immature? Yeah. And then there was the Project Veritas video showing Democrat citizens planning to basically perform an act of terrorism by putting acid in the sprinkler system. I hope this 5 year old style of temper tantrums doesn’t continue for too long.
It is incredibly praiseworthy that Hilary Clinton and her husband came to the inauguration. Same goes for Barrack and Michelle Obama, and both former first ladies look fantastic.
It’s cool to see Bush and Carter at the event. There are going to be five U.S. presidents in one place, and that is pretty epic.
Alright, we’ll the inauguration is official starting so I’m gonna blast this post, typos and all, and watch this go down.
