Author's Note: The following article was published before the November 3 election results confirmed Joe Biden as the next President of the United States.
Nonetheless, the Biden win did not change the distribution of votes and support for Donald Trump since the 2016 election. In 2020, White women overwhelmingly chose a narcissistic psychopath, accused rapist and White Supremacist as their preferred leader and role model for their children.
Here's the breakdown according to NBC News:
55% of White women voters supported Trump, up from 47% in 2016
8% of Black women voters supported Trump, with 91% backing Biden
28% of Latina women voters supported Trump, with 70% backing Biden
What does this teach us? If a nation's character and core values are shaped as every mother shapes the characters and values of her children and hence their future and the future of the nation, then It teaches us that America IS Donald Trump.
Please read on.
At the most unexpected times, people I'd totally forgotten have, for no apparent reason, insisted on reentering my life, not just physically, but as the surrealist André Breton put it, “(In the) reality of certain forms of previously neglected associations, in the omnipotence of dream, in the disinterested play of thought.”
Well, last night an old flame inserted herself between frames 547 and 853 of the omnipotence of dream. There was this storefront dance studio where we‘d each come to audition for a 60's revue. She’d be somewhere around 75 years-old by now. Still looking great. Sexy. And of course there was yours truly with his kissable Crest Tooth Whitener smile and still-slim waist, and those spiffy, new winged-messenger sneakers, so dazzling and, I must admit, irresistible. Invited her for a drink then discovered that my dent-plagued '58 Impala had been towed, which pretty much encapsulates the entire history of our relationship. Well, like Donald said to Ghislaine: I wish her well. Resisting the urge to plug her name into the search engine on Facebook.
If computerized aging, like dreaming, could make one appear younger and hotter and not just older and sadder, then I’d swear I’ve seen these Trumpettes someplace before. A French Quarter bordello back in the ‘50’s maybe?
If that’s the case, then I sure hope they don’t show up in my dream tonight because I still owe them money. And at compounded interest over 60 years, well, that’s quite a lot, especially with Social Security on the GOP chopping block.
The fact is that American women love Donald Trump. 47% voted Trump in 2016, and that’s something I totally failed to appreciate at the time. I understood why the others voted Hilary. She’s a woman. The fact that she’s also a crook and married to another crook (please see www.francescorizzuto.com/post/who-s-naughty-or-nice) didn’t factor into my decision. Truth is, Hilary wouldn’t have grabbed ‘em by the p**sy, and she would have made a much better President than Bill or Donald any day and without alienating everybody.
I mean, do half the women in America vote the way their White Supremacist husbands order them to vote? Despite what has to be the world’s worst education system, I have to doubt that premise. Do half the women in America think that a professed racist and sexual predator who lies, cheats and steals makes a good role model for their sons? Or that a Slovakian former escort (unproven) and gold digger (obvious), who turned Jackie Kennedy’s Rose Garden into a cheap knock-off of Gorky Park, makes a lovely role model for their daughters? I doubt that too. We may be stupid, but we’re not THAT stupid. Are we?
So why do American women love Donald Trump? Just ask the Trumpettes and they’ll tell you. It’s because everyone adores money, and money is power. And power is, well, it’s sexy.
Check into Facebook, Twitter, or any number of other social media platforms and what do you get? The story of everyone’s miserable life, their problems, their divorces, their sexual violations, their fibromyalgia, their alcoholism and/or drug addiction, their psychopathology, their bankruptcy, their abortions and vasectomies. Their powerlessness. And their rage. Yeah, their rage.
We rage against whatever drifts into our crosshairs. Rage doesn’t care about logic or reason, or even facts because rage is its own reward. If you don’t think that’s true, then just attend the next scheduled Trump Hate Rally. Indulge your rage. Feels so good. Better and less expensive than psychotherapy. Find a scapegoat and tear him/her to shreds with your rage. Hilary, Obama, Biden, the handicapped, your next door neighbor. Anybody. Rage at the world because you've got no money and can't get laid.
I could make a list of America’s most recent witch hunt victims but WTF. A society predicated on racism, bigotry and greed brings out the worst in its members. But we never rage against that, against our own worst qualities. When criminals like Michael Cohen open their hearts to us, we open our wallets to them. Why? Because in this bad dream that is America 2020, we are irresistibly drawn to, and at the same time repelled by, the perfect reflection of what we are. Racism, bigotry and greed. Everyone has his/her price. We'll do anything for attention and $$$.
A society predicated on racism, bigotry and greed exudes power and strength. But it’s always the power and strength of the bully.
American women and men love Donald Trump precisely because he’s a bully. The Trumpettes’ message is that it’s A-Okay to bully because in their universe every relationship is transactional. Whether it’s a 50-year marriage in a plush Manhattan townhouse or a 5-minute fuck in a shabby motel room (or that New Orleans bordello), at the root of every human interaction is money. And money is power. Money purchases rights, including the right to “Grab ‘em by the p**sy” because “When you’re a star, they let you do it.”
No money and you're a loser, a sucker. That’s their code. Nothing else matters.
Everything in Donald Trump’s universe is transactional. You can bet those old girls aren’t getting their p**sies grabbed for free. There will always be a price to pay. Like paying the President’s legal defense bills for all those sexual abuse lawsuits. The final tab is going to be much pricier than any of us ever imagined.
There's an unavoidably sinister aspect as to why American women love Donald Trump, a darkly pathological motivation for them to again vote GOP in 2020. It's something called the 'Pareto Principle.' According to Professor Pareto, 80% of available women in any society will be attracted to only 20% of the male population. Yeah, you guessed it. The 20% with money. If you look at ALL of America's cultural icons, their message says it loud; they shout '$$$'. To re-quote POTUS45: "When you're a star, they let you do it...” Can't emphasize that enough.
Just name a single American 'star' who isn't rich. Go ahead. Name one.
So, I'm going to answer the basic question posed in this article: Do half the women in America think that a professed racist and sexual predator who lies, cheats and steals makes a good role model for their sons; or that a Slovakian former escort (unproven) and gold digger (obvious), who turned Jackie Kennedy’s Rose Garden into Gorky Park, makes a lovely role model for their daughters? And are we really that stupid?
The answer is Yes and Yes.
If you care at all about addressing what’s really wrong with America, then get comfortable with the idea that the 2020 election – if an election happens at all – is going to be flawed. The aftermath will be even more divisive that the last 4 years under the Trump Gang, and predictably bloody. So brace yourselves. A nation of 350 million that can’t field better candidates than Trump and Biden is facing a serious uphill struggle.
But please DO vote Biden because in a choice between two evils, the lesser is always better. The alternative will be the omnipotence of dream (e.g., the nightmare) we all dread is coming. We may deserve it. But we don’t want it.
And don't let Donald J. Trump grab YOU by the p**sy.
Vote Biden on November 3. Just do it!
