‘Grumpy Gramps’ comes from having been around the walks of life now for a good long time and those who know me, know that I have my thoughts and opinions which seem to spew out once in a while much to the chagrin of my wife and a few of my grandkids. When it does happen the grandkids sometimes say oh Gramps is getting grumpy – so the name ‘Grumpy Gramps’.
Recently I posted a ‘Grumpy Gramps’ in which I asked for a pause in the political propaganda that is filling our airways. I also noted that I would have some things to say about the nominees – Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and maybe even a few lines for that other guy Johnson.
So as I look at this whole Trump thing I realize that just one posting will not be near enough, so instead I will break down my thoughts about Trump into several areas including Trump on the Muslims, Trump on Mexico, Trump on minorities, Trump on Clinton, Trump on his business practices, Trump on his kids and yes even Trump on his personal life of marriage.
Oh don’t worry, I will do the same with Clinton as I still have right at 90-days until the election and trust me I want to be fair to those who follow me and even to those who don’t but seem willing to read a variety of sources about the nominee of their choice, at least I think some Trump folks look at other opinions.
Possible the one thing about Trump followers that just stumps me is those who claim such solid family values as Evangelical Christians yet pledge to Trump despite his three marriages which includes two wives whom he started dating while still married.
Now from what I have seen his first and second wife were that far over the top, but Melania is someone I question the true family values of those family value Trumpites.
Now I have no problem if someone chooses to undress for money if that is what they choose to do, but I would have a problem if that person became someone who was put in a position of authority or example for my kids. Melania has posed nude in a variety of ways and I just can only imagine what the reaction would be if any other nominee presented a wife or even a daughter who has modeled like Melania has – I mean remember the people of family values raising heck when the eloquent Michelle Obama came out with a sleeveless outfit.
And the fact that the guy from the so called Christian program ‘the 700 Club’, you know the one who is always going into hyperventilation over the slightest non-evangelical, family value hint – well he calls the latest exposed (literally) photos of Melania are just art of the human form. Really, is he talking about the shots of the possible first lady playing with not just one, but two other females while all in their birthday suits. Talk about total hypocrisy.
Now I am sure Melania is a fine lady, but beyond her ‘nude modeling’ she also has misrepresented her education and according to some reports – may have been in the United States illegally. Now wouldn’t that be an interesting spot for a Trump campaign that fires up the crowd about the so called illegals who seem to be taking over our country.
So for now that will be Trump Thoughts # 1. Give me a few days as I gather my feelings together enough to get onto a writing the next line of thoughts that ‘Grumpy Gramps’ may have about the presidential nominee we call Trump.
There you have it, another ‘Grumpy Gramps’ and while many may be spewing about things they don’t like or see has being wrong – many times it will be just ‘getting it off my chest’ type of sharing. So enjoy, think about it and if you feel the need or want – send me a comment or two and ‘Grumpy Gramps’ promises to get back to you.
