THE CLEAN-UP MAN

THE CLEAN-UP MAN

"Like many citizens, I've wondered and tried hard to understand why Trump has such a remarkable following. (It's obvious why he probably should not!) Then a friend sent a raccoon story. It makes no difference about your political leanings, this is just a good explanation of WHY... (or it's as good as any I can come up with).

If you really want to know how the majority of people feel? And this applies to both Democrats and Republicans, read below, it says it all.

You've been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is infested with raccoons. Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement.
You want them gone immediately. You call the city, 4 different exterminators, but nobody can handle the job.
But there is this one guy and he guarantees you to get rid of them, so you hire him.
You don't care if the guy smells, you don't care if the guy swears, you don't care if
he's an alcoholic, you don't care how many times he's been married, you don't care if he has a plumber's crack, you simply want those raccoons gone! You want your problem fixed! He's the guy. He's the best. Period !

Here's why we want Trump, yes he's a bit of an ass, yes he's an egomaniac, but we don't care.
The country is a mess because politicians suck, Republican and Democrat politicians ARE two- faced & gutless, and illegals are everywhere. We want it all fixed! We don't care that Trump is crude, we don't care that he insults people, we don't care that he has changed positions, we don't care that he's been married 3 times, we don't care that he fights with Megyn Kelly and Rosie O'Donnell, we don't care that he doesn't know the name of some Muslim terrorist.

This country is weak, bankrupt, our enemies are making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegals, our elected officials are CORRUPT, we are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo, and Hasid is a special group with special rights which circumvent OUR OWN rights to the point that WE are the "second-rate citizens, to a point where we don't even recognize the country we were born and raised in; "AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED" and Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.

We're sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, Republican Party, and sick of illegals. We just want this thing fixed. Trump may not be a saint, but he doesn't have lobbyist money holding him, he doesn't have political correctness restraining him, all you know is that he has been very successful, a good negotiator, he has built a lot of things, and he's also not a cowardly politician. And he says he'll fix it. And, we believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar.
Also, we don't care if the guy has bad hair. We just want those raccoons gone, out of our house, NOW."

You are welcome to pass this on. I feel this is why thousands of people who haven't voted in 25 years are getting involved.

The raccoons have got to go!

Stoney, my friend, what truth there is in your chain e-mail is shat upon by this:

"Like many citizens, I've wondered and tried hard to understand why Trump has such a remarkable following. (It's obvious why he probably should not!)"

Obvious to a Hilhag supporter, a loyal Dim, or a RINO Never Trumper, maybe.
Laying that turd as a premise to the rest of your post just ruins it.

Did Stoney not preface his little copypasta of a chain email with this NeverTrumpista nugget?

"Like many citizens, I've wondered and tried hard to understand why Trump has such a remarkable following. (It's obvious why he probably should not!)"


At this point, when someone says they cannot understand why we support Trump, it is safe to say they still think Hillary was a shoe in.

Never Trumpers never get tired of being proved wrong.

Says the guy who cannot understand why we support Trump. LOL


I said there is some truth in the text of your copypasta. And I suppose that however one comes around to supporting the President, it's a good thing.

But whenever someone starts off by admitting they don't think Trump should have the support he does, I know what I'm dealing with.

Sorry. It's because of your post. I thought they were your own words, not some one else's. Quotation marks around somebody else's words is an old trick, but by gosh, it works.

I heard the following, which I agree with:

It is sad that a man like Trump could become president of the United States. It is sadder still that he was the best choice we had.

Trump is an arrogant ass. He runs his mouth too much. I can find plenty of reasons to NOT like him. However, there aren't any sane people willing to wade into the swamp and wrestle with the alligators, so for now, Trump is the man. If he fails, is thrown out by the alligators or consumed by them, our country may be finished.

Trump is our last best hope.

He was not the president I wanted, but he is the president I needed.

I just thought/hoped/wished we lived in a better society than we actually do.

This isn't about Trump - it is however about "US" as a nation.



I wanna' become a citizen of the USA but currently see little reason to go through the effort.

Inspire me, please!!
