It's a rather rude gesture, but at least it's clear what you mean. Katharine Hepburn

Ever heard of John Schweers?

He wrote a song Ronnie Milsap recorded (1975) and made famous. Yesterday afternoon, along a lonely desert highway, I heard it. And with a lot of talk radio (about Mr. Trump's latest), before and after hearing that tune, much thinking.

What if Mr Trump had, in lieu of the crude words he spoke (11 years ago) that are now all the rage, said or sang about that woman, "I'm having daydreams about night things in the middle of the afternoon ..."?

Akin thoughts expressed differently.

Think, don't daydream, about it.

The bottom (apologies if that word is offensive) line:

Mr. Trump said.
No crime.
So what.
Mrs. Clinton (and President Clinton) did.
A lot of crime.
Not so what.
Did trumps said.
Go Trump!

Enough daydreaming.

Let's get back to reality, America - there's our country to save.

Post Script

And John Schweers was not the first songwriter to capture clever words for lusty thoughts. So have, and do, poets, writers, and artists come up with some dandies; some more palatable than others.
