Baffling statement about the election
Emma Roller has a column in the NY Times about last night’s debate. From the column, quoting Mr. Lipina:
“Who do I hope will win? Donald Trump.”
He said that while his own political philosophy aligns more with Mr. Johnson, the Libertarian Party candidate, he wants anyone but Mrs. Clinton to win because he finds her untrustworthy.
I cannot understand how anyone could view Donald Trump as trustworthy. He lies constantly, changes his story frequently, hides his federal tax return, declare bankruptcy repeatedly, refuses to pay his contractors for work that they’ve performed, and so on. Those are not the actions of a trustworthy person. But Mr. Lipina doesn’t like the “untrustworthy” Clinton and so will vote for Trump.
Our country is becoming very weird, it seems to me.
