Admit it, Trump is bad

It is beyond me how any informed, rational or sensible person can vote for Donald Trump. I sympathize with those who feel they can’t get ahead or are disenchanted with our current leaders, but how can one believe this obnoxious, ill-informed, self-aggrandizer will realistically remedy anything?

Republicans need to be honest with themselves and recognize the party has nominated an immensely unqualified candidate only interested in winning the presidential “contest” and inflate his narcissistic ego.

Trump makes grand gestures suggesting that he alone can make everything better. His dictator-like manifestos may work in business, but not in a democracy. Don’t foolishly believe he is some kind of savior. Instead do some careful research and learn how he has never actually done anything to help anyone but himself or his family, and will go to any lengths to lie, cheat or destroy others to make the “deal.”

Maybe in 2020 the Republican Party can find a qualified, intelligent, informed and honest candidate. In the meantime, cast your vote for Hillary. She is not perfect, but she is so much more qualified and intelligent than the Donald. Just the words “President Trump” scare the hell out of me.
