Most of the planet is mired in disbelief, aghast at the thought of Donald Trump ascending to the White House throne. How can it be that voters would pass the baton from the first African-American president to one supported by the Ku Klux Klan, calling Mexican immigrants criminals and rapists, proposing a total ban on all Muslims entering the United States, mocked his opponents and the disabled? How can it be that such man escaped serious charges for assaulting more than a dozen women and boasted of such assaults? How did Melania Trump, escape deportation or a jail term by violating the law by earning modeling jobs before she became a lawful resident (AP & NYT report). 

Trump used Hitler’s propaganda minster’s playbook, repeating lies to vanquish his Republican opponents and then bullied Clinton with the dreaded label, “crooked Hillary.” 

Under a Trump presidency, (oh mercy!), the Supreme Court will make a hard right turn with the appointment of a Scalia clone. 

Will his faithful lap dog, Rudy Giuliani, be appointed Attorney General, pardon Chris Christie embroiled in “bridgegate” and then put Clinton in jail? Will he organize a giant posse and round up all the Hispanics and build a giant southern wall? American voters proved they were no more immune to the lies of a dangerous demagogue than other democracies that succumbed to hate and cowardice to their eventual shame. 

Funeral services will be held on January 20, 2017.
