That’s Entertainment

Those of us who grew up with MGM movie musicals remember well the logo: THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT! If Donald Trump were to give his campaign a true title (replacing “Making America Great Again!,” he would use MGM’s words instead. What more could you ask from an entertainer than that he shock us with words that inspire racism? How exciting to hear him make light of his fellow “entertainers” with references to their lack of energy or drinking too much water. While Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Mr. Trump would give him a new wall to sit on–the wall separating our country from the one just south of us where, according to the Donald, rapists and thieves live. I was always entertained more by comedians who did not have to resort to profanity or even to slapstick in order to make me laugh. Believe me, I love to laugh but not at my fellow human beings when the world needs serious people who are praying that our leaders will keep us safe. I pray that those who are attending the Trump rallies for entertainment will realize before November 2016 that the person whom we choose to be our President and Commander-in-Chief must be more than just an entertainer.
