'Once upon a time,  in America, it looked as if white men were at long last losing their tenacious grip on power. A black man had made it into the White House. A woman in hot pink claimed the gavel in the House,' ' but now, Trump’s time machine is a vicious & vertiginous journey, all about punching down, making brown and black people scapegoats... he has inverted all the old American ideals, soiling the image of our country in the world and reshaping it around his grievances and inadequacies.He is a faux tough guy who lets other people do the fighting for him, a needy brat who never accepts responsibility for his actions, an oaf with no trace of courage, class or chivalry.' Ms Dowd has spoken!

Dowd used the Tarentino movie to set up the character of Donald Trump, and boy, she nails him as the 'needy brat he is and goes on to say this; " Tarantino fashioned his nostalgic world out of love, while Trump fashions his out of hate. His entitled and grabby ways illustrate why we need to leave that world behind. America is struggling to find a new identity with a more colorful mosaic, moving beyond our monochromatic past. More new heroines and heroes need to emerge, both onscreen and in life....But first we need the credits to roll on Trump."


Wouldn't it be great if it were a woman like Warren, Harris, or Gabbard?
