The Trump Effect . . . Did You Think It Was That Far Off?!?


Happy Hump Day, Y’all … Or IS It?!?

Y’all know what I am talking about?  … that thing I am asking you if you thought it was that far off …. “The Trump Effect”!

All of that hate that he stirred up to get “sick” people out to vote for him is being directed at innocent targets.  Crimes against Muslims are up, according to the crime statistics nationwide, in comparison to what they were last year at this time.  A woman … she was a Muslim was told to remove her traditional head gear unless some “home styled terrorists” were going to burn it off of her head with a cigarette lighter if she didn’t remove it in their presence!!  Some kid in a Miami Dade Public High School showed up to school with a “Trump” cap and a confederate flag floating in the air while he had someone take a photo of him for social media.  Some of the high school kids reported it, and it was investigated by the school’s principal and administration.   The kids apologized and they were reprimanded according to school misconduct policy which was not elaborated on in the news report covering this event.  The Trump Effect … you can act like an asshole and say I am sorry …if you want to …  ’cause he doesn’t apologize … and gets ready for the “Next Episode” in your life’s drama to tout the fact that Trump won the electoral college vote.  It’s funny because in his own interview on “60 Minutes” Sunday night he said that the electoral college was rigged and that the popular vote should be what determines the winner of the presidential race.

So, this African American veteran in a city in Texas went into a Chile’s Restaurant where they were giving free food to veterans on Veteran’s Day and was questioned by a store manager.  After, an older white patron who was also a veteran from World War II spoke up and said, “I was in World War II and there weren’t any blacks over there so you’re not a veteran!”  This white patron was wearing … what else … a Trump cap saying “Make America Great Again”!  This character was able to coerce this manager to ignore the service card the African American veteran had in his hand and SHOWED HIM and also had his service dog with him decked out in a “red, white and blue” neck chain and body holster so he could guide the service man … yep … to take the box of food away from him!  “Trump Effect”!  Hey … when I first heard this … my mind returned to my New York City corner days when I had to talk tough in certain neighborhoods … and I strung together a bunch of insults for Trump … then I got control of myself and calmed down!

Have you heard the story about the guy who hosts an anti-gay, anti-Muslim, racist website … and Trump wants to name him his official advisor!!?  His name is a household word in the Ku Klux Klan and soon to be … in the White House!  Stephen Bannon is the candidate for the position of Trump’s Chief Strategist … and is also the organizer of the website called Brietbart which is purported to represent the “alt right”  movement.  What is that?  Well, simply put, it is an extremist movement that supports ” … the mass deportation of undocumented immigrants and protectionist trade polices.  It opposes feminism, diversity, gay rights, globalism, gun control … and civil rights” …  Sounds very American to you?!?!  You’ve got to be freaking kidding me.  Is this how he … “Scrump” … will make America great again … Or … maybe make America MIGRATE?!?!  There was a woman on a local newscast …  a Haitian civil rights activist … who spoke about “the electoral college” and how it was created during the times of slavery in the USA, which wasn’t that long ago, and how it is “outdated” and needs to be revised.  In my opinion, which you may not value … but I ain’t gonna die over it … it needs to be re-evaluated.  Even as outgoing Senate minority leader Harry Reid stated, “This man lost the popular vote by 2 million votes, is now president elect … and wants his chief strategist in the White House to be an advocate of the alt right.”  Reid follows with, “Don’t do it … don’t do it!” while Trump told the “home styled terrorists” who are openly attacking Muslim women, African Americans, immigrants, gays and lesbians to “Stop it!  Stop it!!”  But “Scrump” … YOU started it!

As the POTUS Obama watches the “transition” and does his part to make it smooth, I think he is intelligent enough to see that there are some problems looming on Capitol Hill with this “new-styled” President Trump.  If you are staying here … get prepared to study reasons for impeachment …
