I'm waiting for the debate tonight. Donald Trump has just been exposed by Hillary Clinton's team as a morally damaged presidential candidate and has Republicans calling for his stepping down immediately. All along such facts have been coming out as it is: Miss Universe was shamed by him for gaining weight; and private conversations have now been aired, showing how he has acted in the past. This latest scandal happened at age 59, 11 years ago.
Actually, men rarely change their youthful attitudes unless they go through an epiphany for some reason or other. An epiphany is an altering of attitude suddenly. Something has to happen to turn a person around. It's happened in religious stories; a change of heart.

can cause an epiphany
"Epiphanies are relatively rare occurrences and generally follow a process of significant thought about a problem. Often they are triggered by a new and key piece of information, but importantly, a depth of prior knowledge is required to allow the leap of understanding. Famous epiphanies include Archimedes's discovery of a method to determine the density of an object ("Eureka!") and Isaac Newton's realization that a falling apple and the orbiting moon are both pulled by the same force."
As Giuliani said this morning, Trump has learned after this past year, and speaking
to people has changed and what this means.. He has finally grown up-better late in life than
never. (my words.)

How did Trump ever trump 16 other well qualified and outstanding men in this Republican
race in the first place? He was the one without any political background which was refreshing.
He was the only businessman, living and working with the common man as well as the very rich,
the entertainment field, but rarely the academic. At heart, he's a builder.
|Remember Gore's chutzpah. This was Bill Clinton's Vice President|
in Time Magazine. He dared to branch out of politics and step into science of weather.
I see Trump through the eyes of a teacher. Like others I have seen, he must have been a very bright
but unmanageable child whose parents probably spoiled him. This man must have grown up as the
prince of the household, with the father finally realizing with his own epiphany that his only chance
in life was to go to a private military academy to learn some rules and obey them. There, this hyper
young man who did not have the patience to sit down and study found other ways to soak up
information most likely, as he graduated.
Trump has been following life by becoming most successful in his field of real estate. Building
after building has the stamp of Trump on it. He's had millions and has lost millions only to regain
them. He has had what I call "chutzpa". " personal confidence or courage that allows someone to do or say things that may seem shocking to others." shameless audacity,
impudence, cheeky, and having lots of fortitude. . The word is sometimes interpreted—particularly in business parlance—as meaning the amount of courage, mettle or ardor that an individual has. It shows up in his personality of expecting himself to be a winner in everything.
Personally, I find his past actions nauseating, as many others do. Most of us have not been brought up to voice such feelings. Now he's finding this out with so many turning against him as of this very morning.
He is an impressive man; 6'3", and about 236 lbs, a big man at 70 years of age. This stature is what usually makes leaders. They stand out. He has leadership qualities deep inside him that come out in his body language. He's a known celebrity. He received possibly special handling during the TV presentations of what they called, "debates." They may have called them debates, but to this former high school debate judge, they were no debates, more like 1929 police interrogations.
Why he has been vilifying and objectifying women up to the middle age of 59 and even only as late as 1 1/2 years ago, is shocking, but evidently he has rubbed shoulders with men in locker rooms who like this kind of talk, and it has fed into his ego. His own mother was absolutely beautiful! Mothers often are blamed either for faults or successes in sons.
My hero, former Mayor Giuliani, defended him today by reminding us all what the other choice of Hillary means to us, and to me it means even more. My concern is that the past 8 years of Obama have been very hard on Israel at a time my 2nd home needs the best from the USA as a partner.
