“…You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful–I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
“…Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything…”
Donald Trump is not suitable to be President of the United States. But this is not a reason why. From the moment I heard the private conversation Donald Trump had with Billy Bush in 2005, I was appalled–not at Trump’s words, but at the deceitfulness of the American press, and at the hypocrisy of Republican politicians.
This private conversation was exposed for blatantly political reasons–allegedly by the same Republican politicians who chastised Trump so hypocritically. We could be sure that Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and even Mike Pence had made very similar comments during their lives. The fact was that no man alive had failed to engage in such “locker room talk” during his life–and no woman either.
And of course the press completely lied about the comments–stating that Trump had bragged about sexually assaulting women–when it was clear that he simply hadn’t. In this “locker room talk”, Trump was speaking of sexual relations with women–with their consent. That’s not sexual assault. Furthermore, he was simply speaking the truth–the same truth that Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Jimi Hendrix had known.
When you’re a star, women will let you do just about anything–even “grab ’em by the pussy.” Not all women–not even most women–just a lot of women.
I envy President-elect Trump–in fact, I’m jealous of him. Everyone in the world latches on to his every tweet as if it’s the last word on everything.
I wish I were a star–I wish I were famous.
Yes, if I were famous, women would indeed let me grab their lovely pussies.
Better still, they might let me have wild, wonderful, sexual intercourse with them.
Better still, they might turn their goddamned smartphones off, and actually let me read my poetry and prose to them.
Or enlighten them on some old, forgotten subject–like history.
Or even share with them my ideas on how we could stop changing our world for the worse, and start changing our world for the better–how we could all be human again, and save humanity itself.
If only I were famous.
