What If TRUMP Won the 2016 Election? A Terrifying Fantasy!
We sure did dodge a bullet when President Rodham won in November of 2016. The crudity, the obnoxiousness, the desire to start a shooting war with North Korea, the devastated economy — whew! Granted, the whole “Putin’s summer house in Ukraine” and the sluggish economy are here due to reality’s basic sexism, but hey, at least we’ve got a woman of integrity in the White House.
To celebrate National Clinton/Rodham History Month in accordance with FCC law, let’s imagine the kind of nightmarish alternate world we MIGHT be living in…
IF TRUMP WON, masked protesters would roam the streets, breaking windows and silencing opposing views on college campuses.
IF TRUMP WON, our borders would be open to people from Christian nations to our south. Respect for our immigration laws —which, in a show of bipartisanship over decades, were created by democrats and republicans alike — would be a thing of the past. No registration? No tests for infectious diseases? No background checks for crimes against women in their home countries? Gone in the name of cheap labor! Rich Republican Hollywood businessMEN would take advantage of these breakers of immigration laws .
IF TRUMP WON, political talk shows would skip issues like the poor, homelessness, the national debt and education. The level of discourse would descend from our current pro-Hillary, informed level to Limbaugh-like crude, childish insults.
IF TRUMP WON,the wraith of Mitt “Russia is our #1 devil” Romney would promote hate against anyone and anything “Russian.” Meet with a person of Russian background? Off to the gulag with you! Yeah, they actually have gulags here in Trumpworld. For Russians. #irony
IF TRUMP WON, Mike Pence would be in charge of the re-education camps for all homosexuals. And they don’t even let the arrested decorate!
IF TRUMP WON, gun-weilding partisans would freely shoot congresspeople whose views they opposed.
IF TRUMP WON, FBI agents would try to rig an election, talk about it openly while the case was being investigated — and be praised as HEROES by television pundits!
IF TRUMP WON, mayors and governors would freely ignore laws they don’t like, shielding law-breakers in defiance of federal laws (again, created by both democrats and republicans in the bi-partisan fashion all REAL Americans love).
IF TRUMP WON, human traffickers would be ignored, as would gangs that prey on our poorest citizens. Women’s right to not be assaulted? Forget it — we need the cheap sex labor!
IF TRUMP WON, a movie about and adult having sex with a 17-year-old would win Oscars. And one that shows a woman’s desire as being so warped she falls in love with a sea creature would win Best Picture! The message: “Women’s sexuality is perverted!”
IF TRUMP WON, a former candidate would question the integrity of our sacred election results and would remain in the spotlight for years — even after losing!
IF TRUMP WON, strippers would be used as news sources. OK, just kidding.
IF TRUMP WON, The Daily Show would still be on.
IF TRUMP WON, public art would be torn down by mask-wearing thugs without discussion or debate — because of its MEANING. Using their usual tactic, the vandals would call this art ‘hate’.
IF TRUMP WON, Democratic fundraisers would be persecuted, merely on the word of so-called ‘victims’ looking to take down the democratic party.
IF TRUMP WON, the government would be used to hound political opponents into submission — even using falsified documents and opposition research given to the FBI by a political party!
IF TRUMP WON, his “justice’ department and friendly ‘faux news’ organizations would talk about political opponents’ sex lives in prime time. Trump’s prurient fascination with the sexual proclivities of his opponents would be unleashed. Nightly news shows would discuss bodily functions in prime time — just like the rightwing claimed THE LEFT would do. #ironysquared!
WHEW! Thank the Goddess we don’t live in THAT reality! (Too bad about the world war over the no-fly zone in Syria, but seriously, there was no other response available.)
