This morning, Mom and I were discussing our almost-physically violent reaction when Trump appears on T. V., and we both agreed that we've never felt instant-heave-inducing hatred for a politician before. I hesitate to even refer to him as a politician, he's not, he's a celebrity con artist, whose used car salesmanship has finally sold that Edsel that's been sitting on the lot since 1958. And, he's sold it to enough people, that now we're stuck with it. 
 
Now, I know this is a topic I've shouted in print about many times, but I ain't done yet. Sure, there's been politicians who I strongly disagreed with (see George 43 and The Gipper,) but none has me ready to projectile as soon as I see his egotistical, sneering face on T. V., which seems to be every minute to minute and a half, and that's on The Travel Channel.  Now, I know there are those of you who disagree, and I hope he gives me reason to change my opinion, but 'hope' is one thing that's mighty scarce in my world!
