I’m not going to write about policies or issues, since I don’t know enough to intelligently debate such things. What I do know is celebrities.
I don’t mean I know about celebrities. I mean, I know them, personally. I work with them every day, and have for several years now. I’ve seen them at their best, I’ve seen them at their worst, and most importantly, I’ve seen them as their average, everyday, normal selves. I wouldn’t trust most of them with a butter knife, much less command of the US armed forces.
Yes, they’re human beings, and thus have individual virtues and vices. I’m talking broadly here.
Once you reach a certain level of fame, pretty much everyone2 loses touch with reality. Everyone and everything around them caters to their every whim. It’s like being an infant, if infants liked cocaine and hookers.3
This tends to leave them rather thin-skinned when someone outside of their circle actually criticizes them. Which leads us to Mr. Trump.
I look back on the various stars of stage, screen, and shitty reality shows that I’ve known, and try to imagine what they’d be like in command of the full might of the American military….
He is dangerous. Not “He’s going to take our guns” or “He’s going to install a theocracy” kind of “dangerous” that exists only in your head. I mean, he might legitimately start a war with Russia because Putin said something untoward. Which, you know, he probably will.
Most people who read this blog probably weren’t going to support Donald Trump anyway, for reasons of their own. That’s great; anything that keeps him out of the Oval Office is fine by me.
But if you like his policies and stances, please, please, please, consider one of the other candidates that you might also agree with. Literally anyone would be a better choice.4
