Unreflectable and Unelectable

Donald Trump said something factual

when he tweeted
to Jeb Bush

in response

to Bush's defense
of his brother

who "kept us safe"

during his presidency.

“Jeb why did your brother
attack and destabilize
the Middle East

by attacking Iraq
when there were no weapons
of mass destruction?

Bad info?”

Pretty good info

and intentionally bad judgment

and sadly
the rest is history.

But unfortunately
knowing a candidate's sibling's

well documented

(atypical for Trump
to have actually done research
for his attacks)

and catastrophic failings

still doesn't qualify a man
to be president himself.

Even die-hard progressives
dead set on Bernie Sanders

are doubtful if Larry David
has any political aptitude.
