Here’s just another quick reminder that this guy, Donald J. Trump, could actually become leader of the most powerful country in the world.
Let that sink in for a minute.
Despite hundreds of thousands of people taking to Twitter with the hashtag #NeverTrump on Friday night and giving their myriad of reasons why they didn’t want him as President of the U.S, there are apparently a lot more people out there who equally love the guy as much as he is hated.
With his dislike for pretty much anyone who isn’t a white American male, it’s perhaps no huge surprise that he’s recently been endorsed by some pretty questionable characters.
Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, for instance, said:
He’s made it okay to talk about these incredible concerns of European Americans today. Voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage.
The founder of France’s Front National Jean-Marie Le Pen, also backed Trump, and tweeted: “If I were American, I would vote Donald Trump. But may God protect him!”
Si j’étais américain, je voterais Donald TRUMP… Mais que Dieu le protège !

Definitely the kind of supporters you want to be associated with, obviously.
But now he’s ‘treated’ the world to a terrifying little taster of what he would actually do in his first day in office (minus shutting down the borders and building a big ass wall) in a video he posted to Facebook a couple of days ago.
In the video – which has been shared by more than 26,000 people and watched over 2.2 million times – he chats about guns and compares the U.S. border to Swiss cheese. Okay then…
I would get rid of the attack on our Second Amendment because that’s what Obama is doing when he does that.
Yeah, that’ll definitely help. What else Donald?
I would very, very strongly get rid of the attack on the border. We have a border that’s like a piece of Swiss cheese, people are pouring through.
He essentially wants to undo anything the Obama administration ever did:
We will work on all of these executive orders, and the bad ones, of which mostly that’s what you have.
Thanks for being clear on that. In a not too dystopian future you can just imagine the prospect of massive walls being built everywhere (because that will solve all our problems) and the prospect of a full-blooded nuclear war.
But none of that seems to be putting off the U.S. electorate.
Come on guys, we’ve let this joke go a bit too far now, surely?
