Comparing Clinton and Trump

Early in the campaign year I said that, in my opinion, the choice would eventually come down to a simple one that each of us must make:

“Do I dislike Hillary Clinton more than I’m afraid of Donald Trump?”

But as it turns out, that was a “false equivalency.

Yes, a whole lot of people don’t like Hillary Clinton. And when you boil down all the reasons they can be fairly classified as “serious.”  Even very “serious.”

But Donald Trump is in a class of his own, unprecedented in our history. Sure, we’ve had assholes running for president before this. There’s been no shortage of narcissism either. And I was perfectly happy with that comparison between the two.

But that’s not what we’re dealing with. This guy is dangerous because he doesn’t have a clue about what it means for the President of the United States having control of this country’s nuclear arsenal.

Trump, at age 70, is only 3 years older than I am. So I am absolutely sure that he was in school during the Cold War when we weren’t practicing “fire drills.” They were teaching us what to do if the President of the United States responded to a real nuclear war attack.

The “President.” And the only thing standing between Trump and the White House is us.

In my opinion, that’s the real choice we have to make. And nothing real or imagined that Hillary Clinton has done, even comes close to that.

So, I might not like Hillary Clinton’s finger on a computer keyboard. But I am absolutely terrified of Donald Trump carrying the nuclear codes in his pocket.
