Crass Heard 'Round the World
Disgusting, shameful, totally disrespectful "locker room" garbage, privately shared between two Hollywood playboys over a decade ago, is now made to be "the crudeness heard 'round the world." The old Bush and Trump braggart comments were beyond abhorrent and offensive, though both boys apologized for them.
As offensive, however, is media obsession with a very old conversation between non-political figures when we're in a crucial time facing earth-altering shifts in our future. The Supreme Court, international tinderbox relationships, global security, and our entire economy hang in the balance. With the question of what kind of country we will leave our daughters and sons unanswered, I wisely look at today's candidates' positions and what they have accomplished, while being well aware there are no perfect candidates. I encourage all to quit putting faith in flawed human beings.
Going around media filters you clearly see one candidate offering a bold vision with solid plans to build a stronger, safer, greater America, while the career politician in the race offers only tired, sad, unsustainable, illogical ways of the past that will leave our children unsafe, broken and abused.
In today's Presidential race, it's only telling which candidate participated in cruder past conversations if both candidates' communications were all exposed, but alas, that won't happen. This, despite the fact that just one of Hillary Clinton's leaked conversations told us all we needed to know about her respect for a woman's life. Tellingly, there was never an apology for this:
It's undeniable that it's only politics allowing characterization of Trump's old comments as more outrageous and offensive than Hillary's comments, as she's caught on tape gleefully defending a child rapist, laughing behind the victim's back, bragging about her disgusting, shameful, totally crude act in defense of a man's worst perpetration of evil on a little girl.
