Hillary vs. Trump: Who Loses?


HillaryvsTrump_450x254jpgIs it just me, or are the two presumptive Presidential candidates this upcoming election season worse than usual? In the left corner, we have former First Lady and former New York Senator Hillary Clinton. And in the right corner, we’ve got self made billionaire Donald Trump.

Before I offer up my prediction of the real winners and losers of this freakish fight for the White House, let’s first take a deeper look at each candidate.

I was raised to be a gentlemen, so ladies first.

Hillary Clinton
She is full of scandal and mysterious deeds, and comes across as a sleezy professional politician.

Remember when then First Lady Hillary stood by her husband during the Monica Lewinsky scandal?

Now she battles a scandal (email) of her own, and the tough old bird just laughs it off at every turn. I guess I should be happy to find at least one laughing — after the decision by FBI Director James Comey to recommend no files be charged against Clinton — everybody else in America is pissed off.

Many have insinuated and accused (without evidence, of course) Hillary and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, of numerous crimes over the many years, including murder. Some even refer to them as the Clinton crime family.

I personally don’t know for sure if Clinton has violated any laws while her many years in office, but I do know that nasty criminal notions and full blown scandals certainly do have a way of sticking close to her and her husband — too close to pick up my vote.

But I do wonder one thing. If she were to win the Presidential Office, would that make her head of the Clinton crime family?

I do have one request of Hillary if elected. Could you please have an affair with a young celebrity or intern while in office and state under oath that you didn’t have sexual relations with that man, or woman? Oh, the drama of it all.

Donald Trump
Who is ready for four years of immigrant bashing and tireless crybaby-like rants?

Okay Trump bandwagoneers, I do find some appeal here. I said some, not a lot.

Trump isn’t a career politician — that is refreshing, to say the least — and it just might actually be fun to watch the Great Wall of Mexico go up.

But after that, the appeal runs thin. I don’t get what you see. Especially for people like me who believe this great country was built by hard working regular folks dressed in overalls, and destroyed by those wearing fancy suits.

I will hand it to Trump for speaking out against corruption, but I do find it extremely difficult to believe that a man like Trump got where he is today without greasing a politician’s pocket, or two.

But like with Clinton, I don’t really know for sure.

Just as I am uncertain of Trump’s true motive for being President. I can’t help but wonder if it’s just the last ‘to do’ item on the bucket list of some eccentric billionaire. And that’s fear enough to keep me from punching the ballot for Trump. Well, that coupled with the fact that I honestly don’t believe I could survive 4 years of Trump’s tirades.

We need a candidate who will speak out passionately like Trump about the wrongs of this country, but be able to do so in a respectful manner to all. Is that so much to ask?

I do scratch my head at those die hard democrat voters who claim that if Trump is elected he will have all the Muslims and Mexicans rounded up like Hitler did the Jews in Nazi Germany. Uh, Seriously?

However, if elected he might shut down Cinco de Mayo, indefinitely.

Who Loses?
I am afraid the answer to that question is “We The People” lose yet again — at least in the short term — no matter which candidate wins. For the record, “We The People” have lost every single election in my lifetime — and that my dear readers, has been a lot of elections.

Who Wins?
I believe the winner in this election so far has been the Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson and the Libertarian Party as a whole. Never in my lifetime have I witnessed so many young people mention the Libertarian candidate during an election season.

Fans of the two-party system blame it on the sad state of their current candidates, one of which many believe should be wearing prison stripes.

And since the Libertarian Party is getting more and more attention, then maybe, just maybe, “We The People” in the long run will finally win.

It pains me to say this, but I predict Hillary Clinton will win the 2016 Presidential election.

God help us!

    One would have thought that the venture into political discussion by Tom Maicon would have at least been unbiased, refereshing, humorous, and I dare say, related to food.
    Instead we are treated to this thinly veiled right wing gibberish.
    “God Help Us”?? Who the hell is us?
    Try writing letters to the AJC.
    This is my last reading of the North Metro Fork !

    • Mona Lott / August 22, 2016

      I’m thinking you should stick with the cheesy food reviews….really lame attempt at intelligent political discussion.

  • Billary / July 28, 2016

    Oh no, Tom! You chased away a democrat.

    Is that by chance a service you offer to the public?

  • Ronnia / September 27, 2016

    How can we trust Hillary to manage our country when she hasn’t been able to control her husband’s serial adultery? How can we trust Hillary to protect our top secrets, when she’s admitted to being “careless” and “making mistakes” when she was just a Secretary of State. How can we trust her stamina when we’ve all seen the video evidence of her having uncontrollable coughing fits, episodic fainting spells, suffered a head injury, has what appears to be mini seizures and spacing out while talking? She also disappears from public and media eye for weeks and months at a time when she’s ill. And let’s not forget she called black males “super predators” . And let’s not forget that she called half of Trumps’ supporters a “basket of deplorables.” Clinton also told Hispanic voters she was just like their “abuela.” Even though Hillary has never had to cross a border. Work as a maid, apply for food stamps, suffered discrimination, had to learn English or lived in an apartment with 12 other people. And Chelsea Clinton is delusional talking about “white privilege”. This, coming form a pampered only child daughter who has had nothing but white privilege her entire life. Moreover, Hillary Clinton will have you believe she’s just like you as she’s wearing a 12,000 dollar pants suit and dawning a 200 dollar hair cut. Trump doesn’t pretend to be just like us. He’s proud of who he is, but still has an awareness of what others go through. This is the type of man we want as president. Vote Trump. Hillary has been in politics for over 30 years, and she’s still talking about the same things she’s been talking about for 30 years. All talk. No action. Vote Trump. He’s a real man in so many ways. Thta’s what we all love about Trump. He’s genuine. So was Bernie Sanders, but sadly, Sanders isn’t an option after Clinton’s DNC criminal cohorts made sure Sanders was knocked off the race. The best revenge Sander supporters can take is to vote for Trump.
    Psycholigists show Clinton is PHONY: Sanders was GENUINE. But Clinton’s angry wolves destroyed Sander’s chances via the corrupt DNC. Best revenge: NEVER HILLARY. VOTE TRUMP.
