If you follow NHL hockey you would have heard about John Scott, the goon-turned-all-star. After an online campaign, fans voted for Scott, who had just 5 goals and 1 assist in his career, to be the captain of the Pacific division team. Yes, it was a joke. The NHL in its embarrassment, tried everything they could to ‘right’ this ‘wrong’. They had him traded from his Phoenix team to Montreal, hoping to make him ineligible since he would be a different division. He was even sent down to the minors! It didn’t work. A win is a win and Scott had won legitimately, it didn’t matter his credentials. At the All Star game, Scott scored 2 goals and won not only the MVP but over 90 thousand dollars. No one saw that coming.
Donald Trump’s Presidential run mirrors the above. I am sure everyone thought it was a joke No one really thought The Donald had a chance. He had nothing in his portfolio to suggest it was anything but a joke. In fact, Trump claimed that he knew nothing about politics. Well the joke’s on America. Trump has rolled down the Republican hill as a small snow flake but has now grown into a huge snow ball and gaining momentum! Trump is for real! You can see it coming. The Republicans, like the NHL, are seeking ways on how to quietly end this embarrassment, but could they? Is it too late? The people have spoken?
The fact that the KKK and other white supremacists groups pledged allegiance to Trump speaks volumes as to the type of person he is and what he is about. Not that anyone needed proof, his tweets and loose tongue already revealed such. Trump, in his honest defense, claimed that he knows nothing about white supremacists or the KKK when asked about the endorsements. He just doesn’t know. I doubt he knows that his wives are immigrants. If he did he might think twice about his stance on immigrants.
It seems like what Trump wants, Trump gets because the more he fumbles and bungles his way through his campaigns, spewing hate, sexism, racism and taking cheap and immature shots at anyone who dares to oppose him, the more popular he gets! He is contradictory and barely knows what goes on outside his personal space.
A man who refuses to make his tax returns public and declared “I try to pay as little tax as possible,” is the forerunner in race for President. There was never a better time for Americans to seek God’s blesssing. From Obama to this?
Unlike Donald Trump, John Scott is a good man who deserved the good things he go. Sorry for the comparison, Mr. Scott.
