I’m not a Trump groupie.  I don’t think he can possibly become the Republican candidate.  I think people are just enjoying the fact that “somebody” is talking back to the so-called elite that are running the show and screwing with us — We the People.  Maybe some of the legit candidates ought to pay attention and figure out that people are tired of the cowardly behavior.  You know … talking tough and then shrinking like a whatever.

My problem is…

I really don’t think Trump meant the blood comment as everyone is trying to say.  You see, I’ve heard comments referring to blood in the eyes meaning anger… wanting to see someone dead or destroyed or whatever.  Earlier, I remembered an exact saying, but I didn’t write it down and can’t remember it at the moment.  Nevertheless,  I have heard various versions of such a saying.

I’m also guilty, and so are others, of doing the “whatever”… “whenever”… “wherever” type of closing when we have no where else in particular to go with the comment.  I think that is what he did.  I heard the clip and his “wherever” didn’t sound to me like he was eluding to Megyn Kelly’s menstrual cycle.

Here’s what is important about this…

Remember Todd Akins from Missouri?  All he said, was that in legitimate rape cases women rarely get pregnant.  He wasn’t calling any woman a liar or suggesting anyone didn’t get pregnant as a result of rape.  He was merely stating that it was rare, which it is.  Look how they went after him.  Look how they twisted his words to mean something that he had not meant or intended.  They made it out that he was involved in the War on Women — disrespecting them etc etc.  Boom there went his chance at office.

That’s wrong.

Well, now they are doing it with Trump, though they have plenty of other things they could fairly say about him.  Trump has enough money that he can take the heat as long as he wants to.  What about other candidates that don’t have that luxury?  First Trump and then them?  Will their words also be twisted and the media go into a frenzy tainting the person that doesn’t deserve it — all because the media/other politicians can?

Throughout the day, I have found myself in Trump conversations, though I hadn’t meant to be in most of them.  In one of the exchanges, a woman told me that even the mention of “Trump” was enough to get bombarded with negatives.  I found she wasn’t exaggerating — not in the slightest.

In another conversation, I was responding that I actually heard the clip of Trump making that blood comment and it didn’t sound to me like he was meaning what they are claiming.  In response, I was bombarded and lectured on the bad things about Trump.  (You would have thought I had been campaigning for him.)  I tried to ask what that had to do with anything.  The conversation was (or supposed to be) about the blood comment and nothing more.

(There were more conversations with lots of people who definitely don’t like Trump, but I think the picture is painted clear enough and no need to cover them all individually lest it get boring.)

The point is.  It’s okay for people not to like Trump and not to want him for president (or even as a candidate for the office), but what is worrisome are the ones who seem to think because Trump is Trump that it is okay to lie about him.  It’s not.  If anyone will lie about him — what makes people think the liars won’t lie about them or someone they are supporting on down the line?  After all, a liar can’t be trusted not to lie.

Trump, like all candidates, should win or lose based on truth — not lies.

Cheating needs to be taken out of business, politics, government and the courts.  It needs to have been removed as of last century.  It wasn’t, so now is a good time to demand its removal.

It’s true.  I don’t see Trump becoming the Republican candidate, but I can see why some people are getting a kick out of him joining the race.  He’s stirring the pot and turning the heat up.  He’s not doing things the PC way and hoping that he won’t “mis-speak” in such a way someone will twist his words to mean something he didn’t mean.  Oh never-mind,  looks like he need wait no longer.  He may just have gotten “Akins’ed”… or whatever… right at the onset.

Maybe it is time to get back to the values that made this country great!  Maybe it is time to play fair!  Truth & integrity anyone?
