Anyone who listens to Donald Trump’s speeches knows that he appeals to our lowest standards, usually ranting and always involving name-calling. I am not saying that Hillary Clinton should stoop to his level, but there are so many appropriate tags that could be applied to him.
To name a few: Racist Donald, Misogynist Donald, Xenophobe Donald, Dishonest Donald, Wishy-Washy Donald, Liar Donald, Egomaniacal Donald, Rude Donald, Deceptive Donald, Bully Donald.
I wonder if he perfected his labeling skills in first grade on the playground of his exclusive private school. He clearly is appealing to that level of voter. The scary part is that a lot of Americans buy into his crude tactics, and seem to believe that insulting an opponent somehow improves his arguments.
It obviously worked well in the primaries. I just hope that enough Americans will see through his childish rhetoric, and realize how unprepared he is to run this country.
Never miss a local story.
