We’ve seen enough. If you haven’t made up your mind by now, I can’t imagine what else you need to hear from Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
What I don’t want to see and hear is Trump snorting into the microphone, snarling and glaring at Clinton. I can’t take any more demeaning remarks made under his breath as she’s talking. She takes the debates seriously. He rants like a wild man.
Trump’s bombastic behavior is typical of a schoolyard bully. He belittles Clinton by bringing up former President Bill Clinton’s infidelity, which has nothing to do with her bid for office. He’s using sex to put Hillary in her place and turn voters against her.
When it comes to women, Trump seems to relate to them only in sexual terms. We’ve heard his crude remarks about grabbing women and kissing them, and several women have confirmed that he’s made unwanted sexual advances. He even made ugly remarks about Ciinton’s appearance after the last debate, another attempt to objectify her.
Trump isn’t fit to be the president of anything. He discriminates based on a person’s race, religion, gender, color, creed, you name it. Trump is the antithesis of the U.S. Constitution and hasn’t shown an interest in anyone or anything but himself throughout his life.
Clinton is the best choice based on her track record of helping those less fortunate from her days as a young lawyer, first lady of Arkansas, first lady of the United States, U.S. senator and secretary of state. She’s human and has made some mistakes, but they’re not of a magnitude that disqualify her from being president.
You know what Clinton represents and what to expect from her: compassion, empathy, even temperament, clear-cut policies, ability to build a concensus, knowledge of world affairs and respect from world leaders. That’s who deserves to be in the White House.
