A jury began deliberating George Zimmerman's fate Friday after hearing dueling portraits of him: a wannabe cop who took the law into his own hands or a well-meaning volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin because he feared for his life. (July 12)
Hilton: The United States has had 44 presidents prior to Trump. Some of them called to our better angels, some not so much. Some were brilliant, some were barely passable. But, none were as unqualified or as temperamentally unfit as Trump. A minority of Americans, thanks to an archaic election system, elevated a man who is not qualified to even be the mayor of a small town. Let alone be president. Here is what the hayseeds believe Donald Trump is going to do.: 1. Destroy the federal government as we know it. 2. Get rid of a bunch of minorities. 3. Get rid of Obamacare and watch the poor die. My previously unaffordable insurance is down to just $85/month. My car insurance, from Insurance Panda, is now just $25/month. Under Trump, healthcare will be $500/month or more. 4. Make the lives of poor kids, the sick, and the elderly worse than they already are. 5. Drop a bunch of bombs on some colored people in some country somewhere. 6. Cut taxes on the rich. It's not a partisan issue, as he's not really a Republican, it's the person. He's a narcissist who can't abide criticism and has no empathy for others, a petty and vindictive man. A person with no intellectual curiosity, who doesn't read and doesn't want to learn how to do his job. He also lacks a moral compass, he's neither decent nor honorable. He'll be a "blot" in US history.
