Donald Trump isn’t just a bad candidate, he’s an existential threat to the United States. (tell that to JEB!)Who wrote it? Some guy whose name you've already forgotten. Some guy on Facebook who sees the world like this:
Donald Trump is a racist thug. (but aren't they all)
Yeah, that’s right. I said it. (yeah, you said it. How brave you are)
It's funny and oh so true - the amount of stupid vitriol spat out by busy little fingers on keyboards in the direction of Donald Trump is mind boggling. The whole piece is great, but the center section I copied above is spot on - it's exactly the kind of thing you read on Facebook and Twitter. And we'll all be reading a lot more of it after tonight once the GOP makes the Trump candidacy official. The collective meltdown on cable news coverage is wonderful to behold now that this thing is actually happening - the reality of it is finally starting to sink in and the stakes of this game couldn't be higher. Fantasy and dreamy scenarios are metastasizing into a nightmare of epic consequence and the only thing reasonable, worldly people can do is post their objections on Facebook. Warnings that will soon be forgotten like a sun setting on the amber waves of grain.
