Donald Trump believes we should have a "total and complete* shutdown" of all U.S. immigration by Muslims. And the idea got him a standing ovation at a rally today.
OK, I get that bigots feel no shame over being bigots.
But how is it they feel no shame over being cowards?
Obviously, bigots are cowards -- bigotry is born of fear plus ignorance.
But one thing cowards fear most is being seen as cowards. That's why cowards tend to be such blowhards -- blowhards like Donald J. Trump.
And yet here we have thousands of people at rallies, and presumably millions across the country, just fine with trumpeting (Trumpeting?) the sad fact:
"We're cowards, and we don't care who knows it!"
I don't get it.
