“We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!…Lets fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us…This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!…Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before…Our nation is a once great nation divided!..The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy.”
—- Donald Trump via Twitter, in the wake of the 2012 Presidential election results.
I stumbled upon this old post last night, and I can’t resist re-posting it. Then I referred to Trump as the “Republican Designated Buffoon.” It is especially ironic considering that President Trump is so because of that “disaster,’ the Electoral College.
A buffoon in 2012, President four years later! It brings to mind one of my favorite Clarence Darrow quotes:
“When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I’m beginning to believe it!”
