We Speak English Here

Trump and Bush had this set to today: Trump said: Bush "should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States." Jeb Bush to Trump: "What’s wrong with speaking Spanish?"

I was reminded of my son when he was just 7 years old. We had been in the Peace Corps in Honduras for two years. Five to seven years old is a perfect time to learn a language. My son spoke it like a native  Even chiding me about my Spanish.

We were so proud of him and of course when we returned to the States we wanted to show him off to our friends. One day at a gathering, we turned to our son and said "Speak Spanish for the people Mike."

Drawing himself up to his full little height, he indignantly declared: "This is America! We speak English here!"

I was. You're not proud that someone stood up to illegal alien loving liberals bent on destroying this once great country? Oh wait, you ARE one of those illegal alien loving dolts intent on selling out white Christian males to the most current lowest bidder (illegal aliens). The good part of all this, it you too will have the opportunity to watch your kids live in a "lesser" America. Too bad you're too stupid to realize it will happen because you supported illegal aliens and other such depredations. We speak English in this once great country and always should. Your ole pal
