The Raccoons In Your Basement Analogy
You’ve been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is infested with raccoons. Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement. You want them gone immediately so you hire a guy. A pro. You don’t care if the guy smells, you need those raccoons gone pronto and he’s the guy to do it! You don’t care if the guy swears, you don’t care if he’s an alcoholic, you don’t care how many times he’s been married, you don’t care if he voted for Obama, you don’t care if he has plumber’s crack…you simply want those raccoons gone! You want your problem fixed! He’s the guy. He’s the best. Period!
That’s why we elected Trump. Yes, he’s a bit of an ass, yes he’s an egomaniac, but you don’t care. The country was a mess because politicians suck, the Republican Party was two-faced and gutless, illegals were everywhere. You wanted it all fixed! You didn’t care that Trump was crude, you didn’t care that he insulted people, you didn’t care that he had been friendly with Hillary, you didn’t care that he had changed positions, you didn’t care that he’s been married three times, you didn’t care that he had fights with Megyn Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell, and you didn’t care that he doesn’t know the name of some Radical Islamic Terrorist.
This country was weak, bankrupt, our enemies had been making fun of us for the previous eight years, we were being invaded by illegals, we were becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo, and Hamid had a special group with special rights to a point where we didn’t even recognize the country we’d been born and raised in; “WE JUST WANTED IT FIXED” and President Trump was the only guy who seemed to understand what the people wanted.
You were sick of politicians, sick of the DemocRAT Party, Republican Party, sick of “Fake News” and the Liberal Propaganda Media. You were sick of illegals. You just wanted this thing fixed. President Trump may not be a saint, but he didn’t have lobbyist money holding him, he didn’t have political correctness restraining him. All you knew was that he had been very successful, a good negotiator, he had built a lot of things, and he was also not a cowardly politician. And he said would fix it.
You didn’t care if the guy had bad hair.
You just wanted those damn raccoons gone.
Out of your house.
