Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, is trying to sell a pair of extremely tight shoes to the nation. Angry people are buying these shoes saying they're sick and tired of politics as usual. They want a change. They'll buy into anything for change, even a pair of shoes that will never fit.
It isn't a case of a bridge too far, but more specifically, there isn't a bridge...
"Trust me," Donald says. "They'll s-t-r-e-t-c-h. We'll make America great again. This country is for the pits. Our roads are bad, there are no jobs, the military hasn't improved since the civil war, Putin loves me, schools are lousy, and I know how to fix everything. Buy my shoes. Trust me. They'll s-t-r-e-t-c-h."
