I’m usually not the one to share political views with the community, let alone with the world. But after recently reading an article with very little relevancy, I thought to myself… Why not? I believe the majority of readers will enjoy participating in this thoughtful process.

***

It is no secret that the ex-president of the United States is now a felon... Please save your applause until the end, thank you.

That’s right! Donald Trump finally had his day in court. He can no longer call it a ‘Witch Hunt’ and might want to save any of those calls for his first day in prison.

As slippery as he is when it comes to paying the ultimate price, he may never see a day in prison. (For this conviction at least. More court room follies to come.) It's the fact that he can now add felon to his title is what makes this (un)presidented outcome completely satisfying. 🤩

I understand that no matter what, he will still have followers who just don’t care that he’s more crooked than the San Andreas fault line. What really defies a logical viewpoint is how one can praise another who has self-incriminated themselves multiple times on audio and video? This here ain’t no witch-hunt no more. It’s overwhelming evidence of incompetence or he does have the ability to tell the truth (inadvertently).

Oops, did I just tell the truth? How uncreative of me.”

Sorry Donald, no mulligans today. 😉

It contradicts the saying “the truth will set you free” No no no… The truth will sometimes incarcerate you. Rightfully so. We may not agree with every court decision lately or ever, but I do believe they got it right this time. I say throw the book at him! Wait, books are too precious. I say we throw anything but books. Yeah, much better.

What comes next for Donald? This is where a crystal ball would come in handy. The suspense is heavier than watching an episode of Deal or no Deal. (the Howie Mandell version)

Regardless of where this goes next, it restores and reinforces the belief that NO ONE is above the law. There is no hush money that can save you this time, Donald. The world knows, and the majority of the world rejoices.

With all that said, ‘We the people’ have humane bones in our bodies even in conflicting circumstances.

If a man gets caught and arrested for stealing food to feed his family, would you bail him out? Maybe not but most of us would be inclined to donate food or money to his desperate cause of providing for his family. If an ex-president is found guilty on all charges, do you laugh in his face? Of course you would, but after all is said and done would still consider getting him a gift for Father’s Day.

This is where the fun starts. I thought it would be a nice gesture to comprise a list of gift ideas for Trump for this coming Father’s Day. What could the man possible need that he doesn’t already have?

Dignity?

No, dignity would never agree to be associated.

Honor?

No, honor would be too embarrassed to be seen with him…

Hmm, Conscious?

Ok, now we’re getting somewhere, but I feel he would just toss conscious in the closet with a bunch of other useless stuff.

I know, how about a muzzle with a 20-digit combination encrypted lock on it. It would be pretty simple to get him to try it on. Just tell him it’s some new-aged wrinkle control device. Once it’s on, it’s never coming off and we can all live happily ever after knowing the lies exist now only as grumbles. Ok, that’s one for the list.

Now it’s your turn. Please help me with some gifts ideas in the comments. I really would like to get him something, I’m just not sure what it should be. This is why I’m turning to the Vocalites for help. There is no shortage of creative ideas on this platform.

Lastly, this is all in good fun at the price of someone who will be ungrateful no matter what we get him. This in no way insinuates the want for harm to another person and is geared towards making us laugh at the gift ideas. Make me laugh! Nothing is too outrageous. Thank you in advance.

    A disguise. I think he might need one.

  • Cathy went with want I wanted to say so I'll improvise. How about we get him a covfefe machine?

  • Cathy holmes2 months ago

    How about a barrel of covfefe hand picked and delivered by liberals from one of his favourite "shit hole" countries.

    I'd gift him a one-way ticket to Putin's Altai bunker and figure out a way to lock them both in there (like stage an Apocalypse).
