This is a really scary article. I wish I could find a way to refute it, but I can’t. It is certainly food for thought. And the stuff of nightmares.

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full-time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: “PRESIDENT TRUMP.”

Never in my life have I wanted to be proven wrong more than I do right now.

I can see what you’re doing right now. You’re shaking your head wildly – “No, Mike, this won’t happen!” Unfortunately, you are living in a bubble that comes with an adjoining echo chamber where you and your friends are convinced the American people are not going to elect an idiot for president. You alternate between being appalled at him and laughing at him because of his latest crazy comment or his embarrassingly narcissistic stance on everything because everything is about him. And then you listen to Hillary and you behold our very first female president, someone the world respects, someone who is whip-smart and cares about kids, who will continue the Obama legacy because that is what the American people clearly want! Yes! Four more years of this!

You need to exit that bubble right now. You need to stop living in denial and face the truth which you know deep down is very, very real. Trying to soothe yourself with the facts – “77% of the electorate are women, people of color, young adults under 35 and Trump can’t win a majority of any of them!” – or logic – “people aren’t going to vote for a buffoon or against their own best interests!” – is your brain’s way of trying to protect you from trauma. Like when you hear a loud noise on the street and you think, “oh, a tire just blew out,” or, “wow, who’s playing with firecrackers?” because you don’t want to think you just heard someone being shot with a gun. It’s the same reason why all the initial news and eyewitness reports on 9/11 said “a small plane accidentally flew into the World Trade Center.”

We want to – we need to – hope for the best because, frankly, life is already a shit show and it’s hard enough struggling to get by from paycheck to paycheck. We can’t handle much more bad news. So our mental state goes to default when something scary is actually, truly happening. The first people plowed down by the truck in Nice spent their final moments on earth waving at the driver whom they thought had simply lost control of his truck, trying to tell him that he jumped the curb: “Watch out!,” they shouted. “There are people on the sidewalk!”

Well, folks, this isn’t an accident. It is happening. And if you believe Hillary Clinton is going to beat Trump with facts and smarts and logic, then you obviously missed the past year of 56 primaries and caucuses where 16 Republican candidates tried that and every kitchen sink they could throw at Trump and nothing could stop his juggernaut. As of today, as things stand now, I believe this is going to happen – and in order to deal with it, I need you first to acknowledge it, and then maybe, just maybe, we can find a way out of the mess we’re in.

  1. I think you are right to suspect the Donald is a sociopath. People must grasp the gravity of what it means to have a sociopath leading the country, making decisions for all of us, and representing us on the world stage. This would be a person without conscience, guilt or shame, and an addiction to manipulating others to feel dominant, as president of the United States. I hope you would be interested in my post, to get more information on this topic.


    • I agree with you, but I admit reading your comment made my stomach clench with genuine fear. If you send me a link or you send me an email with an attachment, I’ll gladly look at your post. I’m looking for other voices for this subject. It’s not that I don’t have my own opinions, but I think more voices might reach more different people. This year, the stakes are too high. I can’t sit on the sidelines for this election. Come what may, I feel I need to do what I can to add a voice or voices of sanity amidst the madness.


  2. Just read this the morning after last night’s sock ’em Democratic Convention bout with President Obama and Veep candidate Tim Kaine giving rousing speeches.
    Last night’s euphoria aside, Michael Moore hits a home run with his piece on why Orange Head could win.
    All grievances aside, ALL of us need to get out and VOTE in November. We should not vote to spit in the eyes of our country. The spit blow back would be full of imitation orange and awful!!

  3. I still want to trust the extraordinary humanity in my fellow Americans.


  4. I really appreciate Michael Moore, but I wish he’d kept his mouth shut on this. I don’t want to hear it. I don’t want my worst fears stated by a person I respect. On the other hand many folks I know have said they’d leave the country if Trump wins and that’s not the answer either. the way to fight this is to VOTE.., we need to vote him away from becoming president because if he succeeds the US won’t be worth a plugged nickel.


  5. Nobody knows what’s going to happen.


  6. As I read this, Trump is giving a “news conference” — talking nonsense! He’s dangerous, it’s scary that we might have 4-8 years of his ego!


  7. Would we really have to watch a maniac leading a country for 4 years? Please no.


  8. I really hope he’s wrong because Trump poses a real danger But I can definitely see him being elected.


  9. Yes, I’m baffled by the American people. 😉 xoxoM
