It's mid-2019, and yep, Donald J. Trump is still an asshole. In fact, for some bizarre reason, he's the asshole-in-chief. How did this happen?
C'mon, you know how it happened. It happened because P.T. Barnum was right: there's a sucker born every minute. And unfortunately, there have been a lot of minutes, with predictable results.
And it also happened because of a decades-long, vigorous disinformation campaign about Trump's Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. And yes, in the run-up to the 2016 election, Russia took the lead. And yes, it was suckers who took the bait. And yes, the election was thrown by the huge and unfortunately effective disinformation campaign, which the suckers latched on to like piglets latch onto the teats of their mothers.
How can you tell if you're a sucker? Ask yourself--do you have a dislike or distrust of Hillary? Does it give you a creepy feeling just to look at her on hear her name? If so, then yep, you bit the big weenie. Congratulations. You have been programmed. You have been manipulated.
The Hillary-haters I've spoken with broke down when I asked about specifics. They had only talking points. Well, the e-mails. Well, Pizzagate. Well, Benghazi. Well, she had people murdered, maybe. Well, she stood by her womanizing husband. Well, she's just evil. They had no real information. They had no specifics. They just have a feeling and some cleverly-implanted key words. They were low information fools, and so are you if you can't give me chapter and verse about why you hate Hillary, actual facts. I mean, she served as First Lady of Arkansas for FOUR TERMS! She served for EIGHT YEARS as First Lady of the United States of America. She served as Senator for the State of New York for EIGHT YEARS and as U.S. Secretary of State for FOUR YEARS; in fact, she was the country's first female Secretary of State. She ran for President of the United States in 2008 and 2016.
Clinton earned the B.A. degree from Wellesley College, with departmental honors in political science, and received the J.D. degree from Yale Law School; while at Yale she served on the editorial board of the Review of Law and Social Action. After earning her doctorate, she did a year of postgraduate studies, also at Yale. While in law school, she worked at the Yale Child Care Center. worked on cases of child abuse at Yale-New Haven Hospital, gave free legal advice to the poor at New Haven Children's Services, and served on Senator Walter Mondale's Committee on Migratory Labor. Her primary legal interest is children's law and family policy. She has written five books,
Hillary has been politically active since age 13, when she worked as a canvasser in the 1960 Presidential Election. While at Wellesley, she interned at the House Republican Conference. She worked on the campaigns of Nelson Rockefeller, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton. During the Watergate scandal, she advised the House Committee on the Judiciary.
She taught criminal law at the School of Law at Arkansas State, where she was one of only two female faculty members. She co-founded a rape crisis clinic and Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, served as staff attorney for the Children's Defense Fund, served on the boards of directors of Legal Services Corporation, New World Foundation, Arkansas Children's Hospital Legal Services, and several corporate boards. In 1979, she was made partner at Arkansas' Rose Law Firm. During her husband's first term of office she was chair of the Task Force on National Health Care Reform.
And there's so much more, but I'm just going to stop here.
Hillary Clinton is no angel. She has made political compromises, played a bit of tit-for-tat, fell for the lies about weapons of mass destruction in the lead-up to the war in Iraq, Through it all, she has remained a fierce advocate for children and women. But what, what, I ask you, is so fucking bad about her?
Millions of Americans hate Hillary Clinton. They can't quite say why. At the same time, they adore Donald John Trump, who has not in his entire life done one damn thing for the United States. That includes serving as President, which I would argue is something he has done TO America rather than FOR it. He is screwing this country in soooo many ways, and people are blind to it because of disinformation from Republicans, Fox News, and, oh, yes, and most certainly, the Russians.
Fuck all y'all who hate Hillary and fuck all y'all who adore or even put up with the asshole-in-chief. Stop being low information asswipes. Learn how to think.
That is all.
