If Donald Trump Changed Genders, by Frank Bruni – The New York Times


“IMAGINE, for a moment, the presidential candidacy of a rich, brash real estate magnate and reality TV star named Donna Trump.Quizzically coifed and stubbornly sun-kissed, she’s on her third marriage. There’s clear evidence that infidelity factored into the demise of the first, and among her children is one conceived when The Donna wasn’t married to the other parent.Her sexual appetites have been prodigious, at least according to her frequent claims and vulgar cant. And she has a tendency — disturbing on its own, even more so in someone who aspires to civic leadership — to talk about men as sirloins and rump roasts of disparate succulence. She denigrates those who displease her on cosmetic grounds:”

“Trump’s offense isn’t entirely sexual. It’s vulgar, which is a bit different, and broader. It represents not only crudeness toward women, but a general lack of decorum, sensitivity and intelligence that doesn’t befit a presidential contender. Can you imagine president Obama saying such things? Can you imagine the stumbling speech, the thoughtless insults and the adolescent smirks coming from the Oval Office?

The role of president is to represent the aspirations of the American people, young and old, men and women, liberal and conservative. I can’t imagine what electing a president Trump would say about us, or what message it would send to other countries. Sheer embarrassment should make any voter think twice about pulling that lever.

Bill Clinton may have behaved badly, but I’ve always felt that while he embarrassed himself and humiliated his family, he didn’t embarrass the country. His personal flaws were distinct from his intelligence and his political sensibilities.

While Bill Clinton was eloquent, Trump is incoherent. He’s also spiteful, insulting and small-minded. He’d be out of his depth in a wading pool, much less the ocean of responsibility that comes with the office.

But is seems that we can’t avoid him, and he isn’t going away any time soon. However there is one way that you can see the end of Trump. Just remove the T.”
