“2020 is quickly approaching.”
Since the election run of President Donald Trump, there has been constant protest and contest infighting. But my question is, is this good for a party? Because we have not had a politician in the United States that people have pushed against this heavy in a very long time. So what are the Republicans to do?
We have been watching over the country smaller elections after Trump victory where the entire Republican party is being moved aside. So what will 2020 look like with so many people pushing against the leader of the country. It seems as if with these smaller elections, people are making other Republican candidates pay for how they feel about Trump.
So, with the political decisions, you have the emotions running deep. And people have taken this moment in time to vent their personal views. And it has permeated the environment in every discussion about the president. But is it always good to have all these emotions running throughout our society?
Because when emotions are behind all the decision making we lose all logic. And even during a logical moment, we still run with the emotion at times because the social construct of America forces us to choose sides. Meaning, there are people who like the president, but will say no comment or they don’t from fear of verbal, and sometimes physical attack.
a party in peril
Now we have the question left of what will happen to a party that is being seen as untrustworthy. Could it be that Trump has dismantled a party, or has he just unwound himself? Because like I said earlier, a lot of Republicans have been taking loses since Trump’s election. And on top of that, an entire young generation will be voting that didn’t get their chance to vote in 2017. Also with that generation is a group that voted Obama in 2008 and 2012. So you’re talking a massive push in 2020. You could see a run bigger than Obama’s. But whoever it is, could prove a real problem for Republicans if Trump runs again.

“Is Trump the only one whose said what he said?”
In the year 2005 Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and then correspondent Billy Bush were on a coach bus. They were caught on microphone making statements about women. Donald stated that he meets women and has to just kiss them. Even made a comment about having to grab them by the genitals. Even though they were comments made over a decade ago, the story was so large recently that Billy Bush was fired form his Today Show gig. Which was odd that this video has been out for so long yet Bush was fired today.
Now once the audio came out, there were discussions mainly from women. Women who felt what Trump was saying was perverted. But it’s when the men on television were talking about the situation that made me start questioning authenticity. There were men who said they have never heard such comments. And to add to the phoniness, even a few athletes stated they had issues with what he was saying. Now, what’s odd is that I have grown up my entire life hearing men converse like this. But for some reason, all these men won’t admit that they’ve said or heard this before.
Well why won’t we just be honest about what Trump said. You don’t have to agree with what he said, but to say you’ve never heard of these kinds of conversations, ever is a lie. What about in locker rooms, gyms, bars, nightclubs, etc. The truth is, we do and instead of admitting it, everyone act as if he said something the world has never heard. We lie because if we admit the truth there is fear that honesty gives Trump more leverage. And anything that will keep him from winning the presidency must stick.
Even the firing of Billy Bush was a little odd. You mean to tell me that a video that has been out for over 10 years just pops up now. Never before have we heard of this until now. I’m always weary of dirt when it comes out at certain times. The timing of this video is another thing I question. All it means to me, is that people fear he could win. Because if there was no chance of him winning, then it wouldn’t matter. But what we don’t realize is our dishonesty is actually the reason he’s popular. We’re so dishonest, that is frivolous honesty feels good.
And that’s what it boils down to is the honesty. Especially the athletes with the way they treat their women. Men who are notorious woman chasing guys are telling another man how to treat women. The fact of the matter is that Donald has not been affected at the polls much. But with the main election less than two weeks away, we’ll see if still is held over his head. Who will come out on top Hillary Clinton by way of this story, or will people believe in Trump and continue to stomp for him.
