I was on a plane when I received a text from a buddy:
"See the Trump news today?"
I was listening to baseball as I drove from site to site. I was reading and writing in the airport gate area.
I had burned out on the daily stupidity a long time ago.
"He was caught on tape saying horrible things about women."
I still wasn't alarmed. Hadn't we been through that before?
"He can't be hurt by anything he says or does," I said.
"This one's a doozy."
And yet I didn't rush right to Twitter. Instead I waited until I was on Jet Blue. I flipped the channel to CNN.
They were playing the tape. They only beeped the two worst words.
I was thoroughly disgusted.
Locker room banter?
He was a 59-year old man!
Sounded like a 14-year old boy!!
...I flipped the channel.
There was a woman supporting him!
Saying that "boys will be boys" sort of.
"That's horrible," I texted my buddy.
"Despicable," he answered.
I stopped short of saying deplorable.
But I'm disgusted.
If you can somehow cast a vote for him...
...God help you.
Don't preach Christianity to me...
...that's for sure.
