Carl looked at Mike and said, “with all of the evidence mounting against him, I don’t understand how you and more than 40% of the country can support that idiot. It’s a riddle that, to me, is unsolvable.”
“What I don’t understand,” Mike said, “is how you liberal snowflakes can embrace the American underdogs who live in poverty because they’re lazy. Not to mention the illegal migrants, criminals, and terrorists who are streaming across our porous southern border while you spare no clemency for our commander-in-chief. He’s a gift from God to our country.”
“He more likely came to power because he made a deal with the devil,” Carl said. “The border crisis is something that he invented in order to stir up his base. It doesn’t exist in reality. It’s a figment of his twisted imagination and it has apparently infected your ability to think straight and to reason.”
“Well, you’re just going to have to learn to deal with having Trump as president for six more years because there is no Democrat who can defeat him in 2020,” Mike said.
Looking up toward the sky, Carl held up his hands and pleaded, “God help us.”
