"Oh, Thank The Gods: It's Only Trump!"

“Oh, Thank The Gods: It’s Only Trump!”
P. Schultz

            In the midst of their apparent hysteria over the presidency of Donald Trump, you can almost hear the American people releasing a sigh of relief, expressing something like the following”

            “Oh, thank the gods. It’s not our undemocratic political system, it’s not our phony ‘two party’ system, it’s not our increasingly oligarchic class system, or our deeply embedded racism, sexism, or homophobia, or our massively populated prisons and jails, or our bloated ‘defense budgets,’ or our militaristic and imperialistic foreign policies that explain our social, political, and economic anxieties and fears. No! It is only Donald Trump! Thank the gods for that!”

            So, it follows: Get rid of Trump and all will be well again. Sure. That makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? Hmmmm…….I wonder……
