Trump’s Twitter Rant Shows Why He Can’t be President
Trump took to Twitter at around 2am (PST) this morning, in order to attack the credibility of a former beauty pageant contestant. The same woman he famously called “Miss Piggy” years ago.
If you watched Monday’s Presidential debate you know that Hillary brought up Trump’s history with former Miss Universe Alicia Machado in order to underline yet another instance of Trump publicly demeaning a woman by attacking her looks. (There are many, many, other examples of Trump attacking woman based on their appearance).
Trump couldn’t sit by and let a former beauty queen, along with his presidential opponent get the best of him. After all, it was clear they were implying he was a misogynist, which we can all agree is not very Presidential. Trump’s solution was to tweet to the American public at 2AM about the former Miss Universe having made a sex tape in her past.
This is the action of a reality tv star, not a man who wants to be President of the United States. According to the New York Times, there is no evidence that such a sex tape exists. But Trump often makes statements without facts to back them up.
This is the man that according to pulls, 40%-50% of the American public support to be President. Has the political system alienated voters so much, that they want a beauty pageant organizer instead of a person with political experience to run our country?
Miss Machado went on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 on Tuesday to talk about her past with Trump, she said “I know what I left with him and he knows, too. And he was really aggressive. He was really rude. He was a bad person with me.”
This interview is most likely what caused Trump to lash out, he wanted to control the news cycle by discrediting the woman that called him ‘rude’. Ironically, his actions proved what she said was true; he is rude, and he makes things up. Donald Trump is a reality TV show host, not a President of the United States. Presidents of the United States do not tweet about sex tapes at 2 in the morning. Presidents of the United States do not attack woman based on their looks. Presidents of the United States cannot act vengefully when they feel personally insulted…they are commanders of the most powerful military in the world. This is not a game show, this is our country. Sober up America.
