“So have you decided who you’re going to vote for in the 2020 election next year?” Dave asked his coworker.
“Yeah, I’m going to vote for Trump,” Steve said. “The value of my 401(k) has jumped by almost half a million since the 2016 election. How could I not vote for him? What about you?”
“First of all, that’s a very self-serving reason to vote for Trump. Second of all, let me assure you that wild horses couldn’t make me vote for that moron,” Dave said. “There are some good candidates on the Democratic side who would be so much better than he is.”
Steve let out a robust laugh. “That’s wishful thinking, bud,” he said. “The Dems can’t get out of their own way. They’re coming across as weak, disorganized, and divided. You’d think with all the shit Trump has pulled, impeachment would be a no-brainer, but they can’t even agree to do that.”
“Okay, I have to concur with you on that,” Dave admitted. “But Trump is destroying our environment, spending billions on the stupid vanity wall of his, treating people inhumanely at the southern border, is in bed with foreign autocrats, and is breaking all kinds of laws. Even the worst Democrat would be better than he is.”
“But the stock market is going gangbusters,” Steve said. “Listen, you might as well bite the bullet, pal, and get used to the Trump name. He’s going to win in 2020 and he’s got a nest full of kids to keep the dynasty going, starting with Ivanka, who is being groomed to be America’s first female president.”
Dave shook his head. “God help the United States of America,” he sighed.
