The triumph of Trump.

It is hard to believe the sizeable and immoral segment of American public opinion that supports American president Trump. There are pollsters who are now telling us that everybody loves a bad boy. And they say there is no badder boy than The Donald.

This is not just sad. It is pathetic. It is the fiction of the bloodied spouse who wants to be beaten. It is the rapists’ #metoo movement. Trump demeans men as much as he demeans women.

Trump takes human testosterone to new levels of bestiality. “Grab them by the genitalia,” he tells the locker-room crowd. His long red tie hanging below his belt buckle is an imaginative metaphor for his penis.

But it is not just Trump who is in question here. How does this crude man make America great again? Great at what?

The sadistic billionaire has it backwards. America is more of an object of derision than it has ever been before. The clamouring at the southern gates to this hell reflects the relative horror of what these migrants left behind in hopelessness and murder and starvation.

To follow such a cretin with no compassion is to just become his next conquest. You know he is an evil person, a whoremonger and a bigot. What are you born-again as?

And what is it that will bring America back to respect? Not just respect from the rest of the world, but respect for itself? In a land that routinely shoots its children and the innocent, you can celebrate after church this Sunday by buying another gun.

George Washington gave America a country. Theodore Roosevelt gave it heroes. Franklin Roosevelt gave it pre-eminence. John Kennedy gave it a future. What the hell is Donald Trump giving it? A social disease?
