This might be an Omen. Last year, during a photo shoot for Time Magazine’s Person Of The Year issue, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump had some major difficulties dealing with “Uncle Sam”, who was a 27-year-old bald eagle.
Here was Sam, trying to stab Donald through the hand with his beak. I can’t say I blame the bird for trying.
In this one, it seems Sam thought that there was some furry little rodent or another such critter on top of Trump’s head. He must have been thinking DINNER TIME!
We have definitely reached a point in American politics where a very substantial amount of people find Trump toxic. Other nations are making fun of us more than usual as a result of his islamophobia, misogyny, racism, and mockery of the disabled. Even the GOP establishment is considering a “ceasefire” among other presidential candidates in order to take him down.
The problem, of course, is that the majority of the Republican voter base is just as racist, islamophobic, misogynistic and generally terrible as Trump. His poll numbers keep going up no matter what he does, and any attack on him only causes his lead to widen. In a strange way, Donald Trump could be the thing America needs most right now. He will, if he secures the Republican nomination, guarantee a Democratic presidential win in 2016. Fun fact: The photoshoot was for Time’s person of the year. If Trump had won that honor, he would have had one more thing in common with Adolf Hitler.
