You’ve been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is infested with raccoons.. Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement..
You want them gone immediately!.. You call the city and 4 different exterminators, but nobody can handle the job.. But there is this one guy, and he guarantees to get rid of them, so you hire him.. You don’t care if the guy smells, you don’t care if the guy swears, you don’t care if he’s an alcoholic, you don’t care how many times he’s been married, you don’t care if he has a plumber’s crack, you simply want those raccoons gone!.. You want your problem fixed!..
He’s the guy.. He’s the best! Here’s why we want Trump: Yes, he’s a bit of a jerk; Yes, he’s an egomaniac; but we don’t care!.. The country is a mess because politicians suck, the Republicans and Democrats can be two-faced and gutless, and illegals are everywhere.. We want it all fixed!..
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
We don’t care that Trump is crude, we don’t care that he insults people, we don’t care that he has changed positions, we don’t care that he’s been married 3 times, we don’t care that he fights with Megyn Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell, we don’t care that he doesn’t know the name of some Muslim terrorist.. This country became weak and bankrupt, our enemies were making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegals, we are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo, and Hasid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in; “AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED”..
And Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.. We’re sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, sick of the Republican Party, and sick of illegals!.. We just want this thing fixed..
Trump may not be a Saint, but we didn’t vote for a Pope.. We voted for a man who doesn’t have lobbyist money holding him back, a man who doesn’t have political correctness restraining him.. We all know that he has been very successful, he’s a good negotiator, he has built a lot of things, and he’s also NOT a politician, NOT a cowardly politician.!..
And he says he’ll fix it.. And we believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong, or looked at and called a liar.. Also, we don’t care if the guy has bad hair.. We just want those raccoons gone, out of our house, NOW!!!
You are welcome to copy/paste/share this.. Thousands of people who haven’t voted in 25 years seem to be getting involved.. And the more people get this message, the more that will understand why Trump was elected..The raccoons have got to go!!!
Steve gets it!
During the 2016 Republican presidential primary season, I often used an analogy not so different than Steve’s. Despite candidate Trump’s extremely conservative platform, I was amazed at the number of so-called conservatives who hated him. They called him a liberal, a centrist, an adulterer, a political nobody, and above all, “not nice!”
Seriously, being a “nice” president matters to a lot of people, some of whom mistakenly call themselves patriots. To hell with the fact that Trump vowed to drain the beltway swamp and rid Washington of the decades of corruption that has existed since the Clintons called the White House home. To hell with the fact that he promised to build a border wall end and illegal immigration and level the trade playing field with the Chinese and Mexicans and stop the flow of American cash to Iran and drill, baby, drill and all of the other things he promised to do, most of which are either done or underway.
Nope, what mattered to them was having a “nice” president, like Mr. Rogers, I suppose, a president who would allow Rosie O’Donnell and Megyn Kelly to insult him with no response. Somehow, steering the country to hell is acceptable as long as you are nice about it.
The argument-ending analogy I often used….
So, you don’t like Donald Trump because you think he is not nice? Why would that matter? Wouldn’t it be much more important that he be competent? He is a patriot, a superb negotiator, a very successful businessman who truly understands economics and how to build wealth, is tough, and he loves his country. How can “nice” be more important than all of that?
Suppose you were diagnosed with a massive brain tumor that required emergency surgery. Do you want the absolute best brain surgeon available, who may very well be an egotistical jerk, something that often accompanies great success, or do you want the nicest person you know to perform your surgery, who happens to be your next-door neighbor, a plumber and a really nice guy?
The responses I typically got to that analogy were always along the “no argument” spectrum from “you’re an a$$hole” to “that doesn’t even make sense.”
The liberal “fact-checkers” are now beside themselves, discrediting the article attributed to Steve Harvey, claiming that “it was written by an anonymous 80-year-old American,” as though that suddenly makes the content invalid.
I don’t care if Steve Harvey wrote the article or an 80-year-old American wrote the article or a left-handed, gay Lithuanian wrote the article. It is the message that is important. Furthermore, the Soros-backed, liberal, so-called fact-checkers are as credible as Mad Magazine.
While Donald Trump was still only one of seventeen Republican presidential candidates, I wrote this…. I Have a Dream
