My disdain for Donald Trump goes back almost 40 years when as a teen I read his book "The Art of the Deal". It was a book full of shitty egoism and obvious lies. Read it yourself, I'm sure most people haven't. Additionally, having grown up in the NewYork area, his face was usually on Page Six or in a headline about a new building, ripping contractors off, a new girlfriend or wife. He was a scumbag then and he is now.

I feel bad for everyone who thought he was a rich, successful guy who owned hotels worldwide and was entertaining on The Apprentice and voted for him based on those traits. He's none of those things. He's a simple con man born with a silver spoon in his mouth and could care less about you, me or anyone besides himself.

I despise and am embarrassed by many things he's done these past 18 months but this immigration situation of tearing families apart at the border is more than I can stomach. Of course, no one should forget it's the republican party that for years has set all this vile hate in place. Trump just happens to be the face of it all right now and he has a unique talent of bringing out the worst in people.

This policy towards immigrants from the south is nothing short of terrorism and clearly sending a message that if you go to America, life will be shittier than the hell you're trying to escape. ICE is going way overboard and abusing immigrants and citizens alike these days. Dumb asses without a pot to piss in think this is all great because now there's someone lower than them to hate on. Amerikka is a hot mess.

This clown and his party might bring the whole American experiment to a belly flopping end if people don't start speaking up, organizing and calling out the bullshit of anyone spitting lies and racism. If not, it's all gonna come apart at the seams and there's only a few people I can think of that'll walk away unscathed, and there's a 99% chance it's not you.

Wake up.
