It’s getting scary here in America. Smart people, Jewish people, are believing Trump. That’s really hard to believe!
I just spoke with an old friend of mine. She’s sharp and talented and a major business whiz. No one puts anything over on her. Except, it seems, Donald Trump.
How did our conversation go? Something like this:
Me: These bombs being delivered to Obama, Clinton, Biden, and CNN are pretty alarming. What’s going on here?
She: Well, there’s a lot of hatred in this country.
Me: Not so surprising. Our president foments hate with his bullying and lies.
She: All politicians are liars.
Me: Maybe so. But he exceeds them all. Big time. I never remember such language from a president. It’s basically impossible to believe anything he says. And the way he disparages other people is no longer shocking to me but it is revolting.
She: He’s no worse than any of the others.
Me: I can’t believe that’s what you think. And look at these big issues he’s fabricating about the immigrants from Central America.
She: It’s true. They can’t be allowed in.
Me: Who said that to your parents who arrived here penniless from Poland?
She: That was different.
Me: How so?
She: These are terrorists.
That’s when I hung up.
We are in big trouble in this country if people like my friend have started to think of Trump as a real president. We are in big trouble in this country if people like my friend believe anything he says. There’s a message here: let’s get out the vote. Let’s prove to the world that the emperor has no clothes.
