There hasn't been a time in recent history when the country has been more divided, and when there are two more divergent visions of what this country should be. The fate of the nation hangs on this election. Yet the election seems to be being determined on some awfully unimportant things.
Should we accept more Muslim immigrants who are potential terrorists, and who will probably be more loyal to their nation of origin than to the US? Does it matter that once they reach a critical mass they will start to demand Sharia law and forever alter the complexion of this country?
Well, maybe, but it's far more important that Donald Trump once told an interviewer that as a celebrity women would let him get away with a lot.
Should we have good relations with Russia, or should we escalate tensions, possibly leading to a major war?
Who cares about a little thing like that when Donald Trump once tried to kiss a woman without asking permission first?
Should we enforce our borders so that we're actually a nation?
It's obviously far more important that Trump, incredibly, once referred to people who snuck across those borders as "illegal aliens" rather than "undocumented workers."
Is it a problem that so many of our jobs have been shipped abroad and that the middle class is being decimated?
Well, it's not nearly as big a problem as Trump saying that Megyn Kelly was "bleeding from her wherever."
Should we choose as the next Supreme Court Justice one who will respect the Constitution, or one who will push the activist agenda of the Obama administration?
Who cares about such an inconsequential thing when it turns out that during production at The Apprentice, Trump actually talked to his coworkers about which women on the show he'd like to bed?
Should we continue to enforce ridiculous standards of political correctness whereby criticism of one group is okay but similar criticism of another is not? Should we continue to call realistic talk "hate speech," thereby ending all honest discussion of our domestic problems?
Who can be bothered about a trivial matter like that when Trump once called Rosie O'Donnell a fat pig?
Should we be concerned about the rising murder rate in our cities and the fact that our police now feel hamstrung when it comes to law enforcement?
Of course not -- this pales in comparison to the fact that Trump used the word "pussy."
It's good to know that the media is keeping America focused on the things that really matter.
