You call that presidential?
How could Donald Trump say he would be “very presidential,” second only to Abraham Lincoln, when the Republican candidate brags about his exterior lower parts, his business acumen despite numerous bankruptcies, his bullying of all opponents, and his insults and disrespect of minorities, women and non-Christian immigrants? Is this what we really want? Someone who is hot-tempered and uncouth negotiating with other countries and representing our proud democratic nation?

Donald Trump — a candidate who forsakes giving any kind of real speech and instead, by some sort of bizarre need to overpitch a deal or fact so that even he can swallow the mass of gross fictions fighting for dominance in his mind — has won in Kentucky.
President Barack Obama — a soft-spoken and thoughtful man, who with calm and comfort saved the world from economic collapse and the resulting world war while swatting away the neo-fascist fear- and lie-spreading politicians and their smirking but well-honed propagandist minions — has lost in expanding moral and fair human reasoning and logic.
The economy is expanding rapidly outside Kentucky but not here because high tech can’t stand Sen. Mitch McConnell.
Beware, Trump’s values are valueless. Kentuckians are better people than thousand-foot wall types, beaters and haters. But maybe not. Be strong because Trump knows how to grind people down by unstable talking and overcommunicating irrelevant information — stopping in the middle of a thought and going off in another direction; totalitarian physical posturing while whining; dragging on and on, complaining, griping and endlessly boasting, pretending to be better than he is.
He thinks he’s cool. Can you believe it? I guess a president can be insane.

God help us
Having been in this world for more than seven and a half decades, I am appalled by some of the things I see and hear.
God help us all if Donald Trump becomes our president. This man does not know at all what it means to come from humble beginnings and have to work hard to try to achieve the American Dream. To be called names and be berated by a billionaire who will trample on you like an ant is awful.
Look at the way our president is treated. From commentator Bill O’Reilly to our disgraceful Sen. Mitch McConnell, they have called President Barack Obama everything but the N-word in public, but I am pretty sure Trump and McConnell also have called Obama that behind closed doors.
McConnell does not have our interests at heart. He’s only there to fatten his wallet and destroy this president as much as he can.
God help us all if Trump and McConnell run this great country.
Childish antics in GOP debate
Watching the March 3 GOP debate reminded me of the movie Animal House, with Donald Trump playing the John Belushi role. Childish antics from all, no doubt. The only difference: Animal House was funny. Nothing funny about these guys who want to be president of this great nation.
People’s choice should stand
I’ve heard rumors that if Donald Trump is the chosen candidate, the Republican establishment will use a brokered convention to try to change the party’s nominee. America is supposed to be run by the people, and the establishment has no right to change the candidate. If the people choose Trump, then that’s the end of it.
