Sarah Palin's linguistically acrobatic endorsement of Donald Trump wasn't fair to the rest of the candidates. So Stephen's got a Palin endorsement for everyone. (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert)
At first, it was funny – the thought of business tycoon Donald J. Trump running for president. It seemed he just wanted to prove he could do it again, after having given up his chance in the 2012 elections. Then, slowly, people started taking him more seriously. Now, he’s practically running the show for the Republican Party, and it’s time we stopped giving him that authority.
With the campaign slogan “Make America great again!” Trump capitalizes on many citizens’ disapproval of the current government and their nostalgia for a time in which – they believe – America was great. But in order to return to this so-called greatness, Trump plans to basically whitewash America.
At the low cost of $30 billion, Trump plans to build a wall protecting the border with Mexico. Given our current national debt of over $18 trillion, this money could be spent on far more substantial endeavors, which is why Trump suggests instead of paying for it ourselves, we should force Mexico to pay for the wall. Definitely a way to foster good international relations with our Southern neighbor.
Since announcing his candidacy, Trump has been blatantly racist towards nearly every minority, threatening to deport nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the US. Even after being reminded of the legal barriers that would stand in his way, Trump remained confident he would achieve his goal.
But his offensive behavior doesn’t end there.
