Trump shouldn’t be president

Anyone who doesn’t know the difference between spirited cheering and unspeakable agonizing should most definitely not be a party frontrunner — much less the president of our United States of America!

Thus the masses of people along the Jersey Shore who, given the circumstances, were accused of cheering, flailing their arms and dancing around when the Twin Towers were hit by planes on 9/11. Yes, those people, all those Jerseyites most assuredly had been wailing, weeping and flailing their arms, but out of dreadful and maddening disbelief — the same as you or I would at the spectacle of such horrendous disasters, especially involving the immense loss of human lives.

And why would any major media be so concerned with what was going on in Jersey with the New York towers crumbling down? ‘Twould be like someone focusing on a dimmed streetlight when a bright full moon is visible.

Lastly, if Trump does, by any misguided fluke of fate, become our next president, please consider this — you might end up as one of the countless individuals he points his accusatory finger at and sharply snarls, “You’re fired!”
