Former Trump supporter says he won’t be duped into voting for him again

I voted for Donald Trump in 2016. At the time I truly felt that he posed the best hope of breaking through the government gridlock we have endured for far too long.

Since then I’ve had my share of “what on earth was I thinking” moments but nothing made it more appallingly clear than this week’s anything-but-presidential debate.

Donald Trump (self-promoting liar, prolific serial adulterer, thief, cheater, draft-dodger, race-baiter, proud self-admitted sexual molester, negligent murderer and now tax fraud) is nothing more than a broken man’s idea of a successful man, an unlettered man’s idea of an intelligent man, a coward’s idea of a strong man, the evangelicals idea of a righteous man, republicans idea of a moral man, and most dangerously – a fool’s idea of a leader. These are “conservative values”? No thanks, I won’t be duped this time around.

For those with a modest sensibility and a propensity for honor, truth and basic human decency … Donald Trump has shown the entire world he’s just a rude, vulgar, ill-mannered, crass, immature, classless schoolyard bully.

Joe Biden called “a terrible man” in the same sentence as Trump? Not even close. Tuesday, November 3rd is trash day for the entire United States of America. Send this heaping refuse pile to the White House curb and put “PRESIDENT” back in POTUS.

I’m not judging, I’m just passing along the verdict.
