Top Political Books @Trump

I made the Top 5 Political Books About Donald Trump list! I’m number 3!!!

The review says: “Using movie villains to expose the cruel policies of Trump is a brilliant way to explain and appeal to the Millennials–our next generation of voters! Easy to understand! And FUNNY! DarthTrump, Trumpenstein, TrumpFace, and more. FANTASTIC ARTWORK!”

Okay, I’m the one who wrote that list. Me, Lima Bravo, the author of Douchebag Wisdom: Dealing with Donald Trump. But in my defense, it’s a really good book and will help people understand the damage Trump is doing to the country and the world. The movie villain references simply make it easy to read.

This is a MUST READ for anyone who DIDN’T vote in the 2016 or 2018 elections. Immigrants are under assault. Women are under assault. LGBTQ people are under assault. African Americans are under assault. Vets! Old people! Poor people! The damage wrought by Trump and the GOP will be with us for generations unless we rise-up and act.

Step-up! Speak-up! Douchebag Wisdom will help you figure out how. Read all of these books and get inspired!

Transform Trump’s Blarney

Today, 49 Muslims were killed in two mosque shootings in New Zealand. The shooter, a white male, cited the United States’ far-right ideology, and specifically Donald Trump, as his motivation. He proudly called himself a White Supremacist.


Hate crimes are up for the third year in a row; up 17% just in the last year alone. Donald Trump, when questioned today, didn’t think it was a problem. That’s because he is part of it. He’s using his best words to incite violence. He’s been doing it since he rode his fat orange ass down that escalator at Trump Tower and vilified Mexicans.

While Trump continues to attack people of color, calling them “invaders” in our land, White Supremacists are killing Muslims, Jews, and People of Color:

  • Christchurch Mosque: white supremacist, 49 dead
  • Tree Of Life Synagogue: white supremacist, 11 dead
  • Mother Emanuel AME Church: white supremacist, 9 dead
  • Oak Creek Sikh Temple: white supremacist, 6 dead
  • Oakland Park Jewish Center: white supremacist, 11 dead
  • Islamic Center of Quebec City: white supremacist, 6 dead

How many more people have to die?!

We MUST overcome fear and hatred; we must stand up to bullies–even if they are the president of the United States. We must look out for our fellow human beings. We must be the change we wish to see. We must live a positive life filled with love and kindness directed toward ourselves and especially others. We must use our #whiteprivilege to help others. We must speak up for our neighbors and friends.

We must transform blarney and bluster into laughter, love, and luck.

How to Talk Politics: Be Kind

kind heart kind words kind thoughts
Kind hearts, kind words, kind thoughts

“I don’t want to hear your political views,” she said. And that’s the problem, I thought. No one wants to talk politics and hear someone else’s political views. But … that’s not true. I was very interested in hearing what she thought, but she didn’t share.

Maybe she talks politics on Facebook, maybe not. She certainly didn’t want to discuss it face-to-face. Maybe Facebook provides an opportunity to join the conversation but with a bit of cover, although Facebook friends can be just as brutal as the Twitter trolls.

I’m not sure, but she didn’t want to discuss politics in person. Few people do because there are BIG ISSUES at stake: women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, black lives rights, Veteran’s rights, environmental rights, and the list goes on and on.

ISSUES that bring out the best and the worst of us. Both sides, Democrats and Republicans, are pointing their fingers and blaming the other, but America and the world have problems that need to be discussed and solved. The only way that happens is if we have a conversation. At some point we need to start talking and HEARING each other. And we need to start talking face-to-face.

It’s risky, I know. Feelings can get hurt, so remember these words from SoulSeeds:

Being rude is easy. It does not take any effort and is a sign of weakness and insecurity. Kindness shows great self-discipline and strong self-esteem. Being kind is not always easy when dealing with rude people. Kindness is the sign of a person who has done a lot of personal work and has come to a great self-understanding and wisdom. Choose to be kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time because kindness is a sign of strength.

And now repeat after me, “What do you think about _­­_(insert your issue here)__?”

Let the conversation begin. And remember, kind words.
