Yes, Donna, Trump is a scary thing. He is like a metastasizing cancer that destroys all of that which he comes in contact. It reminds me of eight grade and how kids act around a bully. Some start kissing up to him in hopes that he won’t turn on them.

The trouble is that a bully can’t be successfully taken on except by a bigger bully. And the second he understands that you are not that bigger bully he has got you, as we see one politician after the other knuckle under to him.
