Regarding the Dec. 5 news article “Trump rocks Raleigh’s Dorton Arena”: Donald Trump spoke in Raleigh sounding like a schoolyard bully. “Nobody, nobody will mess with us,” he said. He makes it sound like he can rid the world of evil as quickly as a blockbuster hero.
Making America great again sounds more and more like an ol’ shoot-’em up Western movie. But the stage he seeks is not in a Trump Tower boardroom where he can make all the rules. He hopes to lead America and the world.
He said, “People ask me if I would support waterboarding. I want to tell them, ‘What’s two steps beyond waterboarding?’ That’s where I’d stop.” I was sickened by his comment and was glad to see that it got very little vocal response from his crowd.
I hope Trump’s supporters will open their ears truly to hear what they are supporting: A pathological, tyrannical, torturous, immoral and downright terrifying candidate.
Never miss a local story.
As a dealmaker for years, I imagine Trump knows something about the phrase, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” I hope Trump’s supporters will realize that that they are the ones being duped.
