Please suspend your judgment for a moment or two

Put aside for a moment the racism, the misogyny, the bigotry, the ignorance.


Put aside for a moment the twenty-odd accusations of sexual misconduct.


Put aside for a moment Trump University and the young people who were duped out of an education.


Put aside for a moment the birther fiasco, the Charlottesville fiasco, the Helsinki fiasco, the air force-won-the Revolutionary War-fiasco.


Put aside for a moment the bone spurs, the Access Hollywood tapes, all the the accusers of predation who aren’t “his type,” the pardon of Joe Arpaio, the public shaming of Christine Blasey Ford, the reluctance to repudiate David Duke.


Put aside for a moment the blind hatred of Barack Obama, the man-crush on Kim Jong-Un, the cavalier attitude toward toward the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, the warm feelings toward Vladimir Putin, the declaration that the free press is the enemy of the people, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.


Put aside for a moment his political support for a pedophile, his hobnobbing with a pedophile, his admission that he’d date his daughter, his gawking at teenage beauty contestants in various stages of undress.


Put aside for a moment the endless attempts to cheat citizens out of health insurance, to cheat the LGBTQ community out of defending their country, to cheat America out of the taxes he never paid.


Put aside for a moment the images of ragged and starving children in cages.


Put all that aside—and there really isn’t much left, is there?


Yep, that's what I thought.
