The most psychologically unqualified, arrogant, dangerous person to ever get close to the White House was at it again on Sunday. He just HAD to make his appearance at the Rolling Thunder Rally in front of the Lincoln Memorial all about him, with a token malapropian nothingness salute to the event, “It’s our day, and we have to be very proud of it and we are very proud of it.” Huh? What? He then bragged about himself, called reporters “lowlifes,” and thanked the great coach Bobby Knight for his endorsement. Shocked and understandably disappointed that his mere presence didn’t equate to an August, ’63 Martin Luther King-sized event, he then proceeded, of course, to lie about the actual size of the crowd. “No matter where I go, there’s bikers,” said Mr. Trump.
Best Description of Trump comes from a guy named Lloyd Wright. Lloyd was one of the advertising guys involved in LBJ’s 1964 crushing of Barry Goldwater, who they painted as crazy and dangerous. Via Politico:
“My opinion is that Trump is suffering from what I call “Attention-Seeking Deficit Disorder.” ASDD ….He doesn’t want to serve. He doesn’t want to be president; he wants the attention that accompanies the campaign. And now, I think he’s rather afraid that he might win. [Laughs] I don’t think he knows what he’s going to do as president.
I never had that same view about Goldwater. While we felt strongly that he was not adequately concerned about nuclear proliferation, he had some solid views — views I respected, and which would have enabled him to be an effective president.”
Trump’s daughter Ivanka recently reassured us that daddy is “not a groper” of women. His wife Melania guarantees he’s “not Hitler.” But he may simply just be worse than Barry Goldwater. A somewhat different take from Watergate’s John Dean:
Barry Goldwater entered public service to make government better. He served the State of Arizona, and the nation, in the United States Senate for thirty years with great distinction. He was one of the most popular members of the Senate, respected and admired by all his colleagues. Donald Trump has spent his life serving Donald Trump. His pursuit of the presidency is not to make America great rather it is like everything in his life—it’s all about Donald Trump. Just as there are no similarities between Trump and Goldwater, as men, there are no similarities between the 1964 and 2016 Republican presidential campaigns. Only fools and the uninformed are comparing them.
Rest well, and enjoy 2 minutes of Memorial Day Megalomania in Washington.
