These other people historically and spilling over with disgusting lies. It's all they do. They only behave in the interest of themselves and the people who buy them. Neither side is for the American people or for what's right. It's sickening. That's what I think appeals about Trump (and Sanders for that matter). They both come with major issues and baggage but if you want some truth instead of dog shit, I can see how people can hold out some hope with those two.
I think Sanders is pretty truthful.
I used to think Trump might tell the truth. Then I started actually listening to what he said.
For every bit of truth, there's a whole lot of fearmongering and pandering to idiots and bigots.
Not that I'm excusing it, but I think the pandering is unfortunately a simple necessity for him. He knows what he needs to say to get attention and the right kind of attention. That's all he's doing. Is it ok? Not really, but he's not the moron voting for himself for the stupid shit he says. He has to cater to the voters of this nation and unfortunately for some of us, those people are very easily seduced, misled and ultimately duped.
Anyway, my point was, I agree that when you listen to his shit, he has issues with some of what he's saying, but I think a lot of the nonsense he's spouting would go away if he were elected...
