It wasn’t but a few days ago “social media” was agog over a statement made by Hillary Clinton that supporters of Trump were some sort of sub class composed of the “deplorable”.
Politicians, pundits, the liberal press, and Clinton supporters were quick to the defense attempting to spin and do damage control as the Trumpites were beside themselves giggling with glee.
New day, new controversy, only this time the tables are reversed and Trump’s gross statements related to women have the Clinton campaign frothing at the mouth with liberal indignation.
While there has been a tsunami of reasons for both campaigns to take offense so much of it is a theater that like beauty often only runs skin deep.
If the latest revelations fail to drive huge numbers from the Trump camp it can rightfully be said to be “deplorable”, on the other hand there exists ample reasons for the “I’m with Hillary” crowd to abandon ship as well.
A quandary exists when both candidates are so egregiously unfit, knowing this competing parties invoke the voting for the lesser evil axiom as though that is actually a viable solution.
If you’ve ever owned a teflon coated skillet then you are aware that over time the coating deteriorates – such is the case with Trump and Clinton, advantage to Clinton though as the deterioration related to Trump has finally, inevitably, accelerated.
Trump was caught so red handed he didn’t have the momentary respite of an Anthony Weiner style denial that he was hacked and the subject of a hoax.
The “genius” of Trump, this truculent tantrum throwing brat has led him to set the stage for defeat with suggestions of a rigged election – at this point that’s something only a dunce would buy into – the better approach might be attempting to cash in on his claims that he isn’t treated fairly and for that reason step aside.
By doing so perhaps he can to some degree avoid having loser stamped across his forehead for the rest of his life – win or lose though Trump is a loser, he truly is deplorable.
