Why People Don’t Like Donald Trump
“Nobody likes me. It can only be my personality.”—Donald Trump, Press briefing, July 28, 2020
Dear Donald Trump,
You are right. Millions of Americans do not like you. In fact millions loathe you,
You think it’s your personality.
But there’s another reason. It’s Karma.
You are reaping what you have sown. And the harvest is proving to be bitter, isn’t it?
You have called others nasty names, and now you are called every vile name imaginable…as even a cursory search of Facebook will reveal.
You call journalists liars and enemies of the people, and now even the most restrained keep a tally of your falsehoods and made-up stuff.
And use the L word to describe you.
You despise refugees; aliens, you call them.
You scorn the poor; losers, you call them.
And lo, sir, you are scorned.
You want your political opponents locked up. It’s a chant at your rallies.
And now there’s a good chance you will be locked up.
Or worse. You run with men who do nasty things to people. Better not annoy them.
You thrive on conspiracy theories, and now conspiracy theories swirl about you.
Like, why do you find fault with every democratic world leader, but never Putin?
Even if you are as pure as freshly fallen snow, just imagine how Hillary Clinton felt when you spun vicious stories about her.
Or how President Obama felt when you spread birther stories about him.
You have mocked your predecessors, and their families do not want you to even show up at their funerals.
So, it’s more than just a personality problem.
It’s Karma. If you do bad things, bad things come back to you. Sorta like a boomerang.
Here’s an example.
There are about 800,000 Dreamers. They were brought here when they were just children
You have toyed with them, threatened to deport them to appease your base.
I ask you, sir, do you think there’s a Dreamer in all the land who holds a good thought about you?
And there are almost a million of them. Plus their families and their friends and their neighbors and their employers and untold millions of Americans who overwhelmingly believe you’ve treated them abominably.
Karma is the way the universe works.
“For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction.”
That’s so predictable, scientists call it a “law.” Actually, Newton’s Third Law.
The bad will come back to you, in equal measure.
That’s inevitable, as certain as tomorrow morning’s sun will rise in the east, not the west.
