One astute blog commenter once said that this blog was “the death of art and meaning.” I kind of took that as a compliment. Do you understand the type of power I have to construct a book blog that can single-handedly destroy art?
That brings me to today’s post. As I write this today, one man is attempting to accomplish a feat that only this blog has been accused of. Yet, this man, if he is elected as president, will literally kill all forms of art and meaning. This man…he’s like a powerful Dyson vacuum that sucks up every morsel of art and every particle of meaning tangled in what was once a beautiful Persian-style rug–mainly, because this man probably hates Persians.
So, hey! Did you know Donald Trump is running for president of the United States?
Did you know Donald Trump has written a book?
Did you know, in fact, that Donald Trump has written 18 books?
I use the word “written” loosely, because more than likely a ghostwriter interviewed the guy and wrote the manuscript. Judging by his general abuse of the English language, I’m doubting the quality of Mr. Trump’s skills with the written word.
Anyway, the only thing more shocking than The Donald’s current success in the polls is his sheer lack of any filter with regard to what he says and writes. Donald Trump is what happens when the Westboro Baptist Church runs for president.
I’ll apologize ahead of time for the political nature of this post. But I had to write it. I’m currently watching the nation I love inch closer and closer to electing a womanizing, unabashed racist, vile excuse for a human being as president. And I’m embarrassed.
Besides that, as I said above, Donald Trump has written 18 books–and this is a book blog!
All you need to know about why Donald Trump should never be the president of a Kiwanis Club, much less president of the United States, is easily found in his own books and in the many things he’s said in newspapers, magazines and on television. The man indicts himself. So let’s look at all the reasons–in other words, things he’s actually said–why Donald Trump should never be president.
