DONALD TRUMP vs. BARACK OBAMA

Although no president has served without flaws, this is an obvious case. Yes, I can also list the other 43 along with him—but we’ll stick with this version of bad comedy for now. Where do I even begin with this blatant display of hypocrisy. Agent Orange has literally redefined the term, scandal. I mean if you opened a dictionary and looked up the word scandal, I’m sure there would be orange, tanning residue next to it—indicating he’s been there.

To date, the man has more accusations pending against him than a prisoner on death row. Everything from blackmailing porn stars, sexual assault claims, greed, alleged tax evasion, racial slurs, possible collusion with a foreign country, election tampering, FBI investigations—and the flat-out abuse of Twitter. And he’s supposed to be our president—the highest office to represent this country.

But, the irony in all of this is that he does represent what’s been at the core of this country all along. Trump, whether we want to admit it or not, is a home-grown representation of what America really is—racist, white privilege. He proves no matter how corrupt, disloyal, and unqualified you may be—if you’re white you can be whatever you want to be in the United States. Under no circumstances could Barack Obama have gotten away with one-fourth of the philandering crap—the Homer Simpson of presidents has displayed during his first year in office.

As a black man, Obama was scrutinized through the microscopic device white people use when they are looking for the smallest thing to hang you out to dry for. If Obama would’ve had even the slightest hint of impropriety—they would’ve hauled his ass clean up out of there. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Go straight to jail. They would’ve walked him down the green mile singing the chorus to Akon’s Locked Up as they closed the cells on him.

This is a fact…. moving on.
