Let me state this right off the bat. What Donald Trump said 11 years ago is completely disgusting and beneath the pale. As a Ted Cruz supporter, and also given the fact that Mike Pence is Trump’s running mate, the whole thing is made exponentially more painful to have to endure. But let’s step back, take a deep breath and consider the whole picture.
Donald Trump and Mike Pence are our candidates. Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are the enemy. The word “enemy” is not hyperbole; the most dangerous, destructive force ever unleashed upon our nation since its inception has been the Democrat Party. Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are now at the sharp end of the spear. Revolting as what was revealed on Friday about Trump, let me state this categorically, emphatically and unwaveringly:
There is no way that Trump’s comments will change my mind in supporting and actively pulling the lever for him. To allow Hillary Clinton to win the election is to actively participate in and approve of the destruction of this nation. Period. Full stop.
While his statement a few months back (paraphrasing) “I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and not lose any support” made me cringe, I have to say that as of right now, given what’s at stake, I cannot disagree with it.
Lest we forget, the media is a willing appendage of the Democrat-Leftist-Big Government regime. They obviously had this footage of Trump for months if not years; they could have released it during the primaries yet waited until a Friday, two days before a crucial debate. Plus, this footage was surreptitiously recorded without Mr. Trump’s knowledge. Compare and contrast with the Planned Parenthood body parts exposé, all but ignored by the media except to damn the reporters for their work and who now face prosecution; Billy Bush is, of course, an intrepid hero.
More importantly, for over 30 years, the media have obfuscated or ignored the rape, sexual assaults and abuse inflicted by Bill Clinton upon at least a dozen (that we know of) of women – one a twenty-year old intern in the Oval Office which led to his impeachment and disbarring – and the threats and character assassination inflicted upon all of them by Hillary Clinton, the putative champion of women’s rights and dignity. And that doesn’t even include the massive thievery, corruption, influence peddling, incompetence, virtually treasonous behavior and an abject, naked lust for power that defines this woman and her sham husband’s existence.
And now, the second presidential debate looms even larger; trying to defend oneself from two willing hack propagandists (Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper) as well as Clinton, and having a crashing, great ego that prevents him from properly preparing may very well be an insurmountable task. But, Trump has no choice. He will have to somehow come out swinging against Hillary, her beard/sham husband and completely scorch the media.
I don’t think the leaked comments will hurt his diehard supporters, nor those like me who see the danger in allowing Clinton to be elected. But with four weeks left and a race essentially tied, the only thing that can stop Trump is Trump. After surviving 18 months of other foot-in-mouth moments, will this one finally be the one to have an affect or is he wearing a Teflon toupee? The polling will be interesting to say the least, but it may be nigh impossible to see which affects him more, negative or positive – his performance or his 2005 remarks.
From day one up to November 8th, there has only been one thing that can defeat Donald Trump. And that is Donald Trump. But in the immortal words of the late Andrew Breitbart, “Fuck you. WAR.” I hope Trump takes that to heart.
