Emperor Trump?

Could anyone have imagined a presidential election this bizarre?

It is almost like they invented a new propaganda technique. It is the political equivalent of the “big lie” – an election that is so unbelievable the voters have no idea what to do or who to believe.

I mean, even “Emperor Trump” is starting to make sense to me. Help!

    It is “reinvented”. That person 80 years ago whom no one wants me mentioning was asked about his plan for “the final solution” saying it could not ever work. That person replied, “Does anyone remember the Armenian Genocide?” which had happened just twenty years before. That was only one million very educated people. (many who came to this country at the start of the last century to be educated). Across the street from me lives one of the sons of the Armenian genocide, well in this 80s or 90s now. His mother was at boarding school in Turkey when the rest of his mother’s family was massacred by the “Young Turks”

    Trump has already made clear what he’d like to do to anyone who protests his sayings. And what he’d like to do with the Muslims in this country, etc, etc.

    Only 800,000. The Hutus went after the educated minority Tutsis.

    Believe me the White Supremacists in this country, the Bundys and David Dukes (and now Christie) of this world are salivating at the thought of Trump getting in. They have the guns and ammunition.

    Trump was in favor of illegal immigrants only when he could make money out of them

    There is plenty of evidence on the web from non-liberal websites about how his usage of arabs, chinese and even mexicans was ok when he made money out of it and now that he’s running for presidency its not. The last sentence of this bberg article also indicates that running for presidency may been a calculated tactic to make his brand more famous. So much for authenticity.

    If Clinton and Sanders dropped out of the race entirely and considering the other two alternatives (Cruz and Rubio), I’m not sure a Trump presidency wouldn’t be the lesser of three evils.
