Donald Trump vs. Bernie Sanders

9

This may or may not happen in the general election for 2016, but my silly sense of humor, with a Pythonesque twist kicked in.

For those who remember Monty Python and the Holy Grail and the final battle scene, before they are all arrested by the Constabulary.

I’m picking on Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, because they have the most enthusiastic followers on either side. I’m trying to imagine the two sides facing off and yelling at each other.

Both sides agree they want something different; they just don’t agree with each other.

Bernie Sanders has his young, trendy supporters. He also has his Vermont foot soldiers. They have the guns. OK, we can argue gun control in Vermont, but Mrs. Clinton seems to be doing a stellar job at that.

The Trump supporters are older, angry white people. Studies have come out recently, as with Russian men, white American men are now dying younger from depression and alcohol. (The Washington Post was a source, so you can argue with me about that). Before they die though, they want to show how angry they are.

The Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan is acting as the French castle in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Or the building that’s attacked in the short at the beginning of Monty Python’s Meaning of Life.

Donald Trump doesn’t need the French Knight to taunt the Sanders Army below. The Donald can do that all by himself.

Bernie Sanders shouts, “If you don’t surrender your building, we shall take it by force!”

“Bring it on,” snarls, The Donald.

You then realize both leaders, are the stereotypical loud New Yorker, except the one in the street has lived outside New York City for decades, and the other one thinks he owns New York City.

The Sanders people start to charge the Trump Towers, when as in the Holy Grail, they are arrested by police, only instead of British Constables, they are New York’s Finest, the NYPD.

    Love these articles. It is true so many of our men are turning to drinking alcohol. They don’t seem to know their self worth. Check out my own https://angiesdiary.com/poetry-and-lyrics/poetic-prose/the-alcoholic-and-his-enabler/ if you find yourself drinking to find self-worth.

    So, whom do you favor now, Hillary or Trump? Direct response, please. One word is fine.

  3. Andrew JSacks says

    Well?

  4. Andrew JSacks says

    Which one?

    Please, play it smart: vote for Trump—not an alleged criminal who presumably jeopardized national security interests by purportedly deleting over 33,000 classified, confidential emails, lest the public perhaps discovers she used her personal server! Liberal or conservative, whatever your ideological views/politics, please out of common sense, choose the more trustworthy candidate, not a suspected felon who belongs on trial, and incarcerated, if proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt!!

    I see. A “common sense” vote for the con man.

  7. Andrew JSacks says

    Micheal, you must be kidding.

  8. Andrew JSacks says

    Any intelligent and reasonable person can see Trump is a racist and a con man.

  9. Andrew JSacks says

    And Hillary has been unfairly maligned. It is obvious.
