Tonight, President Obama will address the nation one last time in his much anticipated farewell speech. As I come to terms with what that really means, it’s hard to find solace. The reasons are a bit complicated, some of them easier to articulate than others, but all equally as hard to swallow. So as we prepare for what I know will be an emotional night, I’d like to reflect. I have more than a few things to say.
Earlier this month, TIME magazine revealed they’d chosen President-elect Donald Trump as their 2016 ““Person of the Year.” And while I don’t think any of us were shocked, I think it’s safe to say that most of us were disgusted. We’d had enough of the Trump Train.
In the last week, both Ben Carson and Caitlyn Jenner have voiced support for Presidential candidate Donald J.(ackass) Trump. And while anyone who supports Donald Trump is an enigma to me, these two are particularly troubling. Mainly because one is Black and one is a trans woman.
There a few good things about America. One of them being that a former homeless man could decide to run for President, and perhaps even WIN. Back in 2011, the world was first introduced to Ted Williams via a video posted by The Columbus Dispatch. The video, which put Williams’ “golden voice” on display, led to national television appearances and earned Williams numerous voice-over jobs.
Donald Trump is well known douchebag. Personally, I think the only reason people even talk to him is because he has a ridiculous amount of money. He’s like the boyfriend or husband that you only put up with because they buy you nice things and take you on trips out of the country. But sometimes really rich husbands can be so damn annoying that even the money won’t make you stay. Yea, that’s kinda what’s happening with Univision and the Donald as we speak.
