When I am old, I shall wear purple — and red

President Donald Trump

Donald J. Trump

The title of my blog post today is from a poem that I read many years ago. This was on my mind this morning, when I woke up, and remembered the day that I had voted for Hillary to be our next president — I wore purple and red that day: a red hat with a purple coat.

In the weeks before the election night, Wiki-Leaks was leaking news about the Democrats, but not about the Republicans. Wiki-Leaks was revealing bad thing about Hillary, but strangely, there were no leaks about Trump. It was at this time that TCM came out with film footage in which Trump revealed his “pussy grabbing” history. He said “when you’re a star, they let you do it. ”

Many people including me, think that Putin was involved with Wiki Leaks, and that he was “hacking” the election. It was Wiki Leaks that also revealed information about Hillary’s e-mail server and her e-mail messages. I knew that it was not a crime to have an e-mail server; I had such a server myself, at one time.

My voting place was less than a mile from my house — I could have walked there, but instead my son drove me there — in a red car. He parked the car near the door into the building and I walked up a long ramp, after declining a wheel chair. There was a very long hallway that we had to walk through.  There were no direction signs up yet, but there was a young woman there who gave us directions.

When we reached the polling place, I was asked if I needed help to mark my ballot, and to put it into the ballot box.  I declined all help — I wanted to do it myself.

After I voted, I was given a sticker to put on my coat, to show that I had voted. These stickers were in many different languages, including English. After voting, my son and I went to a local restaurant and had coffee along with a hearty meal.

As I sipped my coffee, I was hoping that I had just voted for the first woman president of the United States of America. The final count for the election showed that Hillary had gotten 2.9 million MORE votes than The Donald, but he won because of our electoral college voting system.

On the night of the election, all the pundits were predicting that Hillary would win the election. When I went to bed on the night of the election, Hillary had 2.3 million more votes than Trump, but all night long, Trump had been chanting that he would win. When I woke up, on the morning of the election, I found that Trump had been right: he had won the election.

How did Trump know that he would win? “When you are a star, they let you do it!”

The Trump vs. Hillary debate

I am still trying to recover from watching last night’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, who are shown in the photo above.

You can read about it at

I think that Hillary won the debate and that Donald Trump showed us again why he is not qualified to be the President of the United States.

Hillary wore red, Trump wore a grey wig and a sour expression

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 9:38 am

At last night’s debate, Hillary looked like a 30-year-old very attractive woman; Trump looked angry as usual.

The morning after the debate, Trump went on the attack, as reported by the New York Times:

Hillary held her head up high and looked at the camera; Donald looked at her, the entire time, with a scowl on his face. During the debate, he spoke to her. She looked into the camera and spoke to the audience of 100 million people world wide. She conducted herself as if she were the Queen of a country. Trump sipped water throughout the debate, while Hillary only took one sip of water. Having “dry mouth” is a serious sign of ill health; Trump should see his doctor. [Dry mouth is a symptom of failing kidneys.]

Hillary’s best line was this: “A man who can be provoked by a tweet should not have his fingers anywhere near the nuclear codes.”

Hillary was at the top of her game; Trump interrupted her 51 times. She interrupted him 17 times.

The subject of the famous e-mails on Hillary’s private e-mail server came up; Trump said that he would release his tax returns as soon as Hillary reveals the 33,000 e-mails on her private server. So – never! Hillary’s e-mails are gone — wiped clean from her private server.

I used to have a private e-mail server; the advantage of having your own e-mail server is that you can see where the e-mails are coming from, not  where they are claiming to be coming from.  It is not a crime to have a private e-mail server, and you are not required, by law, to save 33,000 e-mails until the end of time.

Over 100 million people world wide watched the debate; 62% of the people in the world wide audience said that Hillary won the debate, while only 27% thought that Trump was the winner. Six percent of the viewers thought that the debate ended in a draw.

Trump claims that his “strongest asset” is his temperment. Hillary’s strongest assets are that she has had 30 years of government experience and she has traveled the world.

During the debate, Hillary brought up the subject of Trump not paying his architect, Andrew Tesoro, his fee of $100,000 dollars for a job that he did. Trump defended this by saying that Tesoro had not done a good job, and that is why he didn’t pay him.

Trump pointed out that he had made 68 million dollars in one year, and that he has been audited by the government every year for 10 years.

I was audited the first year that I went into business, and I passed. My accountant told me that I would never be audited again because I passed the audit the first time. Trump was apparently audited every year for 10 years because his tax returns were suspicious.

After the debate, Trump bragged about the fact that he had not mentioned Hillary’s husband. Hillary never mentioned Trump’s wife, nor his two previous wives who left him.  Trump said that he did not mention Hillary’s husband because their daughter Chelsea was in the audience.

The subject of Obama’s birth certificate came up; Trump said that Obama was born in America. Is Kenya in America? That’s where Obama was born.
