This Guy Thinks He Knows How to Save America From Donald Trump

Former Nirvana Bassist Krist Novoselic

Krist Novoselic is easily one of the luckiest people in music history. Despite having no discernible talent, he played bass for multi-platinum grunge band Nirvana, getting rich off of Kurt Cobain’s heroin laced musical(?)vision and Dave Grohl’s chops. Novoselic is hoping Lady Luck will smile upon him again in ridding the world of Donald Trump. The marginal musician has teamed up with two loser politicians for a really lame plan to destroy the Trump Monster.
Along with ousted US Rep. Bob Inglis and failed Congressman Brian Baird, Novoselic has formed 3 American Questions. The idea is for people to ask the presidential candidates, especially Trump, 3 simple questions and when they see how bad his answers are, they will stop supporting him.  
What are those 3 questions? 
1. What specific actions will you take, and what will you ask the American people to do to reverse global climate change and ocean acidification?
2. What specific actions will you take, and what will you ask the American people to do to fix the growing debt of the United States?
3. What specific actions will you take during your campaign and your time in office, and what will you ask the American people to do to help restore the respect and confidence of the American people in their elected government?
I told you it was lame. According to The Huffington Post, putting these 3 questions to Trump will expose him as a fraud and turn his supporters away, paving the way for a Hillary Clinton coronation. There are several problems with this however.
First, this plan assumes that global warming, the national debt, and campaign finance reform are the things American voters care about the most. As it turns out, jobs, the economy, and national security are the top three issues. Global warming is so far down the list it’s as important to voters as the existence of Big Foot.
The second problem is, Trump actually believes in man-made global warming. He also has a significant plan to reduce the national debt. And let’s not forget that his presidential campaign is mostly self-financed; there are no big money donors for him. These 3 questions are hardly “gotcha” opportunities against Trump.
Hillary, on the other hand, would get slammed by these questions.  While Hillary believes in man-made global warming, she doesn’t understand it. Beyond that, all of the proposals she has would raise taxes, kill jobs, and add substantially to the national debt. And you want to talk about big money in politics; she is the poster child for political corruption. 
If it were possible to get the candidates to answer these 3 questions honestly,  say in a debate,   and people actually gave a shit about the answers, it is Hillary Clinton who would be the one to fall flat. Not Donald Trump.
