Enough!

Brooklyn Currents | 8/09/2016 | 0 comments

It's more than eight months until next Passover, but we thought it would be interesting to borrow the theme of Dayenu (it would have been enough);. But instead of counting all the devine  blessings that were bestowed on the Jewish people, we've decided to apply the idea to the modern-day candidacy of Donald Trump:

--------------------------------------------

If he had called Mexicans criminals and rapists, and not proposed a"great, beautiful" border wall,
Dayenu – it would have been enough to show he's unfit to be president

If he had proposed a border wall, and not called for a ban on all Muslims entering the U.S.,

Dayenu!

If he had called for a ban on all Muslims entering the U.S., and not condemned a war hero,

Dayenu!

If he had condemned a war hero, and not pejoratively said of a female GOP rival, "Look at that face!"

Dayenu!

If he had said of a female GOP rival, "Look at that face!" and not said of a female reporter, "You could see … blood coming out of her wherever"

Dayenu!

If he had described a reporter's "blood coming out of her wherever" and not mimicked a handicapped reporter,

Dayenu!

If he had mimicked a handicapped reporter, and not said of his own daughter, "She does have a very nice figure. If Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her,"

Dayenu!

If he had said he'd be dating Ivanka if she were not his daughter, and not said "I'd like to punch him in the face" of a protester,

Dayenu!

If he had said "Id like to punch him in t6he face," and not said, "I have black guys counting my money … I hate it. The only guys I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes all day,"

Dayenu!

If he had said, "I have black guys counting my money … I hate it. The only guys I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes all day," and not "I get called [names] by a guy that can't buy a pair of pants" referring to commentator who is paralyzed from the waist down,

Dayenu!

If he had said, "I get called [names] by a guy that can't buy a pair of pants," and not said, "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot people and I wouldn't lose voters,"

Dayenu!

If he had said, "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot people and I wouldn't lose voters," and not, "Maybe he [a protester who interrupted Trump] should have been roughed up,"

Dayenu!

If he said, "Maybe he should have been roughed up," and not said, "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese,"

Dayenu!

If he had said, "The concept of global warming was made by and for the Chinese," and not said, "We should go much stronger than waterboarding,"

Dayenu!

If he had said, "We should go much stronger than waterboarding," and not said, "I don't know David Duke " after the white supremacist and neo-Nazi endorsed him,

Dayenu!

If he had said, "I don't know David Duke," and not said that Bernie Sanders "made a pact with the Devil – she {Hillary Clinton] is the Devil,"

Dayenu!

All the reckless, hateful, crass statements of Donald Trump?

DAYENU!
