To The Daily Sun,
As Donald Trump continues to renege on many of his campaign promises and backtracks on his many, many, lies, our local locos, the white-old-men — you know them as Earle-Boutin-Wiles-Ewing — continue to salivate at his every word like Pavlov's dog. No matter what stupid, outrageous things he utters,or writes, they follow along like mice to cheese. They are either incredibly dumb or incredibly gullible , probably both.
These men denigrate what they don't understand out of fear and ignorance, like the Black Lives Matter movement by labeling them as thugs and criminals. Do they have a clue what it is like for descendants of slaves to be treated as second class citizens and not even considered to be a person in our America? That racism still exists. "It will be so refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady back in the White House, I'm tired of seeing an ape in heels." That was from an official in West Virginia just a few weeks ago about First Lady Michelle Obama. Those comments should offend everyone and yet not one of these men touched upon it and spoke out against it. Maybe they agree?
Trump's cabinet picks threaten to dial back women's rights to the dark ages, will wage war on seniors, use tax money to pay for religious education to just name a few; and they may end up having a net worth of nearly $50 billion. Yep, that sure is representative of the middle class. They must surely know how it is for a working class mom in Franklin N.H. trying to make ends meet.
The rich will get richer, and the middle class and poor will pay for it. When he says Make America Great Again, he is really saying that his billionaire elites will earn more billions with Trump pulling the strings and gaming the government in their favor. They win. We lose.
These men don't care about any of that though, because they can't. They don't have the capacity for it. We should feel empathy for them though, and show some progressive love for those less enlightened. It's the American way.
