I don’t know, not Trump though

The enigma that is Donald Trump puzzles any decent human being. From his three wives, to his four bankruptcies, who better experienced to lead a country with unstable international relationships and an $18 trillion debt? With the upcoming 2016 presidential election, Republican nominees have thrust into the spotlight, and the sexist, racist, and hypocritical candidate Donald Trump has attracted the most attention with his controversial viewpoints.

The loud-mouthed billionaire has somehow infiltrated our society and is attracting a considerable amount of attention from old racists who attack protesters, and even has managed to receive and endorsement from former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke.

This is mostly because of the sexist, or racist comments spewed by Donald Trump at every waking moment, such as his remarks concerning Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. During the drama known as “The Donald Trump-Megyn Kelly feud” Trump had been quoted saying “there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.” First of all, everything is wrong and vulgar about this comment. Not only is he being incredibly offensive and sexist, but Trump has a good chance of becoming the next President of the United States.

Does a person who lacks basic human decency really deserve the same title as Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, or Franklin D. Roosevelt? To all the narcissistic, ignorant, and tunnel-visioned Trump followers out there, the answer is no.

Now, The Donald has taken a lot of well-deserved heat, but his followers are the worst thing to have surfaced from his campaign. Trump rallies gather some of the most violent individuals in our country into one place, and attending such rallies guarantees any progressive thinker’s loss of faith in humanity. Protestors are often confronted by Trump followers sporting “Hillary for Prison” and “Bomb the hell out of ISIS” pins.

The recent cancellation of a Trump rally in Chicago on Friday, March 11 due to violent confrontations between Trump supporters and Protesters has left Ol’ Donald feeling victim.

“My free speech was in Chicago Friday night and that’s what it will say in the lawsuit,” Trump told reporters.

Now this is confusing, because in that same statement, Trump said “It was very, very wrong of [the protestors]” to be protesting. While whining about his rights being infringed, Trump has revealed he does not want protesters around, even though they are protected by the same free speech right he is using to support the lawsuit he claims to be filing against protesters and the city of Chicago; so Donald, there’s a major flaw in your case.

In Fayetteville, North Carolina, Trump had also called out a protester and told security to “get him out” which happens to violate the right to free speech.

Trump seems to think only he has a right to free speech, but in his opinion, protesters who oppose him should be silenced.

To anybody ignorant enough to vote for Donald J. Trump: What is wrong with you?
