I don’t hold similar views toward Trump supporters because I’m not a lunatic. Politics is not my religion either. My emotions this post-election morning are joy at the coming removal of Obama and the delousing of our National politics of the Clintons. This is combined with a bemused sense of Trump. He and his supporters make me smile in a way one would smile at an enthusiastic young child who has just eaten his fill of ice cream and hotdogs and thinks the roller coaster sure looks like it would be fun to ride.
May Trump govern with some restraint and wisdom. But we are more likely to watch a succession of bulls entering the various China shops and toppling display cases. But if we actually get a strict constructionist Supreme Court nomination (and confirmation), wonderful. I will applaud. I will state that all those “Rot in hell” magnanimous Trumpsters were right. And who in their right mind wouldn’t want them to be right about that?
But this same “rot in hell” faction will also have to own what inevitably will be a coming mess. May Trump at least find a few acorns of useful action as he carpet bombs us with his oafish personality and ego.
