What Trump’s Presidency Would Look Like

Silently protesting Muslim woman ejected from Trump rally (see video). From CNN.com:

“I figured that most Trump supporters probably never met a Muslim so I figured that I’d give them the opportunity to meet one,” she said [the woman ejected from the rally], wearing a shirt that read “Salam, I come in peace.” “I really don’t plan to say anything. I don’t want to be disrespectful but if he says something that I feel needs answering I might — we’ll just see what strikes me.”

A Muslim woman wearing a hijab was escorted out of Donald Trump’s campaign event on Friday by police after she stood up in silent protest during Trump’s speech.

Rose Hamid, a 56-year-old flight attendant sitting in the stands directly behind Trump, stood up Friday during Trump’s speech when the Republican front-runner suggested that Syrian refugees fleeing war in Syria were affiliated with ISIS.

Trump has previously called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S.

Does America, or the world, need a president who holds such ignorant, narrow-minded views?

  1. Considering all that America stands for, it is incredible that people listen to Trump, much less support him. Mind boggling.

    The media can take a great deal of responsibility for it. They give Trump far more coverage than is of real interest. The more people see him, however, the more he seems “normal.” It’s like giving people permission to unleash their dark side, civilization be hanged.

    Laziness can also take responsibility. It’s a lot easier to slide down than it is to climb up. It’s a lot easier to mentally hang onto the coattails of a boastful billionaire, than it is to put on one’s thinking cap.

    In contrast, down-to-earth Bernie Sanders makes a point to embrace all American citizens. He encourages everyone to join the political revolution; says he can’t do it alone (take on the billionaire class).

    Civilization doesn’t happen by itself. It’s an upward spiral that requires energy – people power. Down with Trump. Feel the Bern!

    • I agree with you about the role media plays. Many people were really angry that Trump hosted Saturday Night Live. At first I didn’t think it was a big deal, but then I realized that being on such a popular show just gave Trump another way to get attention. It’s the kind of attention that Sanders sorely lacks, and the kind of attention that could help “normalize” him to people who still don’t seem him as a credible candidate. I wonder if he’s put in effort to get on Saturday Night Live. Hillary Clinton has been on it at least twice during this campaign season.
