What possesses anyone to look favorably at Donald Trump for president?

Aside from his obvious lack of knowledge, compounded by his combative stance against any and all who disagree with him, there are ample warning signs that have me wondering what would happen with him in the oval office. To paraphrase Michelle Obama, that scares me to the core.

I grew up in the Cold War and I can honestly say that what is happening right now scares me more than what I experienced back then.

Trump’s rhetoric at the forefront of the discussion between the candidates has been unproductive and serves no purpose. It is meaningless and doesn’t provide people with any convincing information about his electability.

His constant insistence that everything in America is bad right now sickens me. He comes off as a medicine man with himself as the remedy.
