Just got off the phone with my dad. Stef is here this afternoon. She said “hi” as well.
“That was nice,” he said as I took the phone back from Stef. It was.
We got to talking about politics this afternoon. We do a lot of that nowadays. He watches as much CNN as their master control operator, maybe more.
“It’s not so much Trump as the people who support him.”
He says they’re the ones who scare him.
“He was right,” my Dad continued before quoting The Donald. “He could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and nothing would change.”
Times are getting tougher for Mr. Trump. The press is digging and questioning his history more than earlier in the campaign. It’s long overdue. He mostly got a pass through the Republican nomination.
What if my dad is right that Trump is right? What if his supporters have weighed in his long list of faults already? What if they just don’t care? He’s worried about November.
My dad’s 91st birthday is around a month away. He’s lost nothing off the fastball.
