39 long, dark nights for America: President Lolz

by awindram

Thirty-nine long, dark nights to go. 

Trump’s Daily Twitter Highlight: “Wow, Crooked Hillary was duped and used by my worst Miss U. Hillary floated her as an “angel” without checking her past, which is terrible! Using Alicia M in the debate as a paragon of virtue just shows that Crooked Hillary suffers from BAD JUDGEMENT! Hillary was set up by a con. Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in  the debate? ”

Clinton’s Daily Twitter Highlight: “This is…unhinged, even for Trump. A few notes. What kind of man stays up all night to smear a woman with lies and conspiracy theories? Alicia deserves praise for courageously standing up to Trump’s attacks. And he has the gall to blame her—and say he “helped”? When something gets under Donald’s thin skin, he lashes out and can’t let go. This is dangerous for a president. To Donald, women like Alicia are only as valuable as his personal opinion about their looks. Trump obsessively bullies Rosie O’Donnell—an accomplished actor. He insulted Kim Kardashian for her weight—when she was pregnant. Pathetic. We’ve heard Donald’s insults for years, and his policies reflect this disregard—even contempt—for women. Trump on equal pay: “Do as good a job” as men. Abortion? Should be “punished.” Pregnancy? An “inconvenience.” Wives working? “Dangerous.” While Donald continues day 5 of his Machado meltdown, we’ll be in Florida talking about national service. You’ll want to watch.”

Trump’s Daily Twitter Highlight Part 2: For those few people knocking me for tweeting at three o’clock in the morning, at least you know I will be there, awake, to answer the call!

Daily election of interest: Donald Trump is self-destructing over Alicia Machado

It is one thing (and even then probably still ill advised) for an anemic blogger such as myself to tap out incoherent, hypnagogic, obsessive musings late-at-night about the election, it is another thing entirely when it is one Presidential candidate providing the late-night drivel. Trump’s twitter attack on  Alicia Machado, where among other things he suggested followers should check out her “sex tape” was unhinged. That is little to add. The full story is found in the tweets that are included above. But he really outdid himself this afternoon with the argument that because he was up at 3am angrily slut-shaming a young Latina that means he is perfectly positioned to make tough calls on defense at 3am – presumably because he is probably already up and demeaning some young woman’s body size on the interwebs. If that is the criteria for being a great President then the worst insomniac 4Chan or Twitter troll is absolutely qualified to be our President – and, in fairness, next to Trump they probably are. Unlike Trump, I’m off to sleep where I can dream the dullest dreams possible about the forthcoming VP debate.
