OK, I’m one of the millions of Americans who does not like either candidate. This is more than just holding my nose to vote for the lesser of evils. Both Clinton AND Trump are unacceptable! I’m old enough to have lived through ALL the Clinton scandals and I’ve have no respect or trust in the “Clinton Machine”.
A year ago, I actually thought Trump, as a businessman, would be refreshing alternative to the typical politician. But then he kept opening his mouth … and opening his mouth … and saying things that were not just politically incorrect but insane! People and doctors began to say he has mental problems – narcissist, pathological liar, and even the “Dark Triad“. I suggest you click the link to read what Dark Triad is as it seems to fit Trump.
While nobody likes criticism, Trump becomes extremely vindictive against any and all criticism. He has said he wants to change the First Amendment to allow lawsuits against the media/press when “they tell lies” about him – something akin to 3rd World dictators. He blocks certain reporters from attending his events if they have reported what he feels are lies against him. While certain media are totally biased against/for certain issues or people, they still have the 1st Amendment that says they have the Right to Free Speech. Obama has restricted the press to some degree, but Trump would be Obama on steroids.
Trump harshly bashed his competitors during the Primaries – and he took them out. After he received the nomination, he continued to bash Ted Cruz during a presser that was supposed to be an event to thank the people who worked hard during the RNC Convention. Just yesterday he ran an ad against Bernie Sanders, on the day Hillary was nominated! Why bash people that are no longer competitors? Because they said “bad things” against him. He can’t “move on”.
The clip below is from a portion of his speech yesterday in Iowa and it is particularly troubling. He’s bashing the DNC Convention speakers who spoke against him. This was no different than what speakers did against Hillary at the RNC Convention. It’s politics. Candidates may not like it, but they must have thick enough skin to take it or they shouldn’t be in politics! It’s not just WHAT he says but his body language and eyes are especially scary. He’s unhinged!
