Please Stop Saying, “Oh Well, It Won’t Be That Bad.”

Willie: Anyhow Trump struck a pretty moderate tone in his victory speech. I predict he pulls a Sarah Palin anyway.

OK, so he talked like Mussolini + Idi Amin the whole time he was on the campaign trail, but now he gave a “moderate” concession speech, so everything is going to be fine?

I really get tired of this, “Oh he won’t be that bad,” stuff. They said it with Reagan, they said it with Bush, they said it with Romney. They were wrong about Reagan and Bush, and they would have been wrong about Romney.

There’s no sense saying, “Oh he won’t be so bad,” about Trump. No one knows what he is going to do, so there is no point predicting.

A conciliatory tone from the most unconciliatory man who ever ran for President? Dubious.

Look man, when people talk like maniacs all during their whole campaign, I take them seriously. All Republicans talk like screeching, bug-eyed, spitting, foaming at the mouth, dangerously mentally ill types during their whole campaigns. I am always stunned by the lunatic shit they say.

And every single election, the liberals I know say, “Oh don’t worry. He won’t be that bad. He’s not going to do any of the crazy stuff he’s talking about. That’s all just talk.”

Reagan and Bush did do all the crazy stuff they talked about and then some, and Romney would have too. With nothing else to go on, I have to take Mr. Trump at his word, which is a very frightening thing indeed.

Come to think of it, on what grounds are people saying, “Oh well, he just talks like a flat-out lunatic. He doesn’t mean any of that stuff.”? Isn’t it bad enough that someone talks like an escaped mental patient with a list of enemies he’s going to kill? I mean, when an insane person is running for President, I would definitely pay attention to what he has to say. When was the last time you pointed to a lunatic on the street and said, “Oh he just talks crazy. He’s really perfectly sane.”?
