Donald Trump accepted the Republican Party’s presidential nomination laying out some of the challenges Americans face and proclaiming, “Only I can fix it.”

The megalomaniac now uses as his closing argument that if Hillary Clinton is elected over him, she will be impeached and we will face a constitutional crisis.

Mrs. Clinton’s isn’t much better because she is spending her final days basically attacking Donald Trump for being unfit to be president.

They both have read the polls (yes, even Donald who says he doesn’t need polls, or generals for that matter) and they see that when the other is in the headlines, their own polls get better.

This is what we’ve come to.

No closing arguments of “morning in America” or any such optimistic, themes of aspiration. Just, “he’s horrible…oh yeah, we’ll impeach her and if I win, I’ll throw her in jail.”

Wake me when it’s morning in America again, please.
