Yes, America, Americans, we seem to be co-dependent just now. We seem to be drawn to a person, a man who is decidedly not good for us. And he really is abusing us.
Donald Trump and his past, his recorded past, on audiotape and video, both, have shown him to be, once again, sexist, misogynist, racist and a whole array of ugly, negative aspects. These are his traits, this is his character.
Yet, here we are and he's still, still one of the two top candidates for the highest government office in the nation and the most powerful position in the entire world.
Things he's said and done so far, in the last 2 years, no one could have ever gotten away with. He just keeps plodding along, going forward. People are still behind him, however dwindling but there they still are.
At one point, we all know he famously said he "...could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters."
We all laughed, at the time, and just thought him crazy but now, honestly, there seems to be more than a little bit of truth to it.
This one came out last May, for pity's sake.
Yet, with all that, with all we've seen and heard from Mr. Trump, he's still in the race and we're still in this relationship.
Donald Trump is not who we should be. He's not "the better angels of our nature" and far from it. Quite the opposite is true, it seems clear.
So how can we get out of this ugly, abusive relationship?
Can we text him it's over?
