It has been a very strange last couple of weeks. I tried to write a blog after the VP debate. Thought about writing how Mike Pence was defending the undefensible . I then thought about writing a blog after the Access Hollywood footage where The Republican nominee for President was talking about chasing after a married woman and how he liked to grab women’s genitalia.
Then I thought about writing about his midnight apology/non apology where he apologized for what he said, not what he did. And then he went off to judge Bill Clinton for similar sins.
I thought about writing a blog after the 2nd presidential debate and how classy Donald brought Bill’s victims to the debate. Now I am no defender of Bill Clinton. I think he was one of the most immoral presidents since Warren Harding. But at least I trusted him to run the government. I could have written about Trump’s predatory body language.
I could have written about those that have come forward with allegations of Donald Trump’s sexual abuse and the terrible things that he had said on the Howard Stern Show.
I am drained. I can’t decide whether this election is a farce or a tragedy. I am a struggling writer and if I wrote the last year as a novel no one would believe it.
I am sick of this. I am sick of Donald Trump. I am sick that part of me is fascinated by it. Just when I think it can’t get worse it gets worse.
There is the old saying “it always gets worse before it gets better” or ” It’s always darker before the dawn”. They are cliches but I really hope they will come true this time.
If it doesn’t get better, I don’t know if I can take it. The only solace I can take is that It will eventually get better. I think that is one of the greatest hopes of being a Christian. That one day we will live in a kingdom without pride, without corruption, without sexual exploitation, and without People like Donald Trump.
John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
