The title of this article may come across as being a little presumptuous; however, on the other hand, really? This is the title that America needs to see if it is to maintain its standing in the world. The Bible states that the prophet is not without honor except in the prophet’s own home. This is the situation with Mrs. Clinton. Foreign Heads of State would welcome a Clinton Presidency because a Clinton Presidency would not be an international joke. Clinton would re-enforce the respect that President Obama has earned in the world.
One of the more disgusting aspects of this presidential cycle is the issue of distrusting Hillary. Secretary Clinton has been around politics for many years. News channels are having to scrap the bottom of the proverbial barrel to come up with only hints of scandal. Trump, on the other hand, is signaling to the world what he is all about. This false equivalency of stating that both candidates are flawed is absurd. The only flawed candidate in the 2016 presidential race is Trump. Perhaps one reason for this false equivalency is that a majority of media do not truly understand what it means to see people with “Confederate Flags” show up for Donald Trump’s rallies. In this writer’s opinion, the Trump name has become a metaphor for the “Confederate Flag.” When Barack Obama was elected President in 2008, a question was raised as to whether America was ready for a Black President. The answer to that is yes. A majority of Americans were ready. Donald Trump and his followers were not ready for a Black President and have refused to accept this reality. That is why Trump and his followers have chosen to move out of the American neighborhood and settle in the alternative and bizarre universe.
Trump lies about Hillary Clinton abolishing the Second Amendment if elected President. This lie insults my intelligence for three different reasons. First, not “if” because Hillary “will” be elected President. Second, President Hillary Clinton will abolish the Second Amendment. Moreover, President Hillary Clinton could not abolish the Second Amendment even if she wanted to abolish this Amendment. The Second Amendment can only be amended out of existence. The constitutional amendment process does go through the President. The constitutional amendment process is a matter for Congress and the states. This factual knowledge can be ascertained by simply reading Article V of the U.S. Constitution. I become dismayed when reporters simply relay what Trump says without alerting the general public of how the system actually works. Perhaps it would be wise for all of America to read or re-read a copy of Khizr Khan’s Constitution.
The method in which the Trump lies insult my intelligence relates to these constant refrains that I hear about Trump staying on message; Trump pivoting; Trump now looks presidential; or Trump is now resetting his campaign. Give me a break, please. Trump has stayed on message since day one because he has no message beyond adding insult to injury. If Barack Obama had shown a Trumpian level of governmental ignorance and political incompetence, he never would have secured the Democratic nomination. Yes, the title of this article is President Hillary Clinton and I have no apologies to offer.
