As I sat and read all the letters praising their idol, Mr. Trump, I thought how sad that so many people have been taken in by a foul-mouthed, woman-abusing, egotistical hypocrite. I am so happy for them as they lick their chops over their growing wealth as the rest of us peons worry over the future and what will happen with this man who sees himself as the savior of his America. Why don’t they all buy an island, build a wall around it and a castle where he can proclaim himself King Donald of Trumponia, and they can all sit and adore him as they count their riches and hug their Trumpy bears and brush his Trumpy hairdo.
This is my America too, and he is not my savior, my president, and never will be. So don’t offer to pay my way to another country. Hate me all you want because I do not care, and as you all like to say get over it, I will say the same.
Yes, God bless America, still the land of the free and the home of the people brave enough to speak their hearts, and so I speak mine.
