“Democrats haven’t learned a go——d thing. This guy is a fascist, a dictator, and you guys have got to toughen up your game. You’re too f—ing polite! This is a blood sport to the GOP, and they #playdirty. Men like to kill each other! Get in the ring!!”
Bette Midler Tweet
Bette Midler and Robert De Niro seem to have a contest to see who can bash Donald Trump in the most profane way, however the Divine Miss M does make a cogent point.
Trump is a fascist, a dictator, a racist, a buffoon, and he doesn’t deserve even a modicum of respect out of reverence for his office.
Politics is a zero-sum game, a blood sport if you will to the likes of Trump and his ilk, and Democrats are ill-equipped to get into the ring with the short-fingered vulgarian. Democrats follow the Marquess of Queensberry Rules while Trump hits below the belt and disregards the warnings of the referee because he’s in his pocket.
The Democratic presidential contenders need to realize they are in a Death Match against the Stable Genius, with the fate of democracy hanging in the balance. They need to wax Biblical and smite Trump high and thigh with a great slaughter.
The Dems should campaign on universal health care, climate change and immigration reform, but at the same time they shouldn’t mince any words, and call out Trump as a racist, fascist and all-around son of a bitch.
If rats have infested your home you don’t try to coax them to leave by gently pushing them out the front door with a broom. You go medieval on the little monsters and poison them and lay out traps.
Democrats should go to extreme rhetorical lengths to drive out the rat who currently occupies the Oval Office.
