I’m going to call Donald Trump the Redneck Presidential candidate. Let’s face it: Rednecks love Donald Trump! Of course they do! He’s the reality TV star. By using the term “redneck” I am referring to the people that enjoy watching “Here comes Honey Boo-Boo” on TLC. Yes, there is actually a reality TV show with that name, and it is just as ridiculous as the name. So, please don’t get me wrong. I live in the country, and I love it. I have a few gun toting friends that like to drink beer and shoot at targets once in a while, so , it’s not about southerners vs northerners, or country vs city. It’s a cultural phenomenon in our country.
There is a large portion of the U.S. population that are not appalled when Trump says he could shoot somebody on 5th Ave and not lose any votes. It’s outrageous, and it involves guns. Perfect! They don’t care that Trump refuses to disavow the KKK now. The more outrageous, the more they like it. Because the reality TV Americans love the in your face, hateful dialogue…they are angry about something, but they are not sure what, exactly.
Donald Trump, or any other reality TV star can help show them what they are angry about. Those Mexicans are taking our jobs! We’re going to keep the Muslims out. Lets just be angry for the sake of being angry. We all have underlying anger at SOMETHING, right?
This is what we have become, America. We have become a nation who doesn’t care about substance, doesn’t care that when pressed by the media to explain his stance on issues Trump can only say, “We’re going to make it great again” .
So, Ben Carson was exactly correct when he was asked what would happen if Trump became the nominee, he replied, “Americans are going to get exactly what they want.”
Now, amid all the hoopla and excitement, the real possibility of a Clinton vs. Trump presidential race is emerging. What does that mean? Here’s what I found on Huffington Post.
I was personally hoping for a race that wouldn’t be so nasty–like, John Kasich or Jeb Bush vs Clinton or Sanders. But no000…if it is Clinton Vs. trump, the gloves are gonna come off real quick.We all know that. One thing is for certain: It would be a legendary race.
Donald Trump, the billionaire who has has every luxury imaginable, who laughs at the very people who support him. The very people who struggle to pay their bills , while Trump sleeps in his luxury towers. What an irony.
