Get used to saying it

 

President Trump! Get used to saying it because, after having endured eight years of a black man telling them what to do, American voters won't just sit back and take another eight years of a woman bossing them around.

In the same way that when you stand on the top of a tall building and for a fleeting moment wonder what it would feel like to jump off it, a lot of Americans will plunge for Trump just to find out what it would feel like.

After all, the voting booth is just about the last place left on earth where there are no security cameras, no listening devices, no cops, not even a time limit. So once they draw the curtain and are all alone in that booth, they can all be closet anarchists and give a finger to the establishment, to political correctness, and vote for Trump not because they agree with him, not because they like his bigotry or ego, but just because they can.

I mean, what's the alternative?
