Make America Great Again, Not Hate Again

Donald Trump is not going to get elected. But he is harming Americans at home and embarrassing us abroad. It’s time for us to hurt him where it counts: In his gaudy, good-leafed, heavily leveraged pocketbook.

There were some funny moments during the early days of the campaign and Trump probably did the system a few favors by changing some of the rules of the game. But things have gotten out of hand. His work here is done, and then some.

I call on Americans to boycott Trump’s hotels, golf courses, and other consumer-supported, money-making entities.

Spread the word. We can do this. Stand against bigotry. Stand against the hijacking of America’s image abroad. And stand for shutting up this ridiculous clown.

(We’ll figure out the broader problem — that so many of our fellow citizens actually cheer his backwards hate speech — later.)

Pass it on. Let’s use social media for something worthwhile.
