White Suburb, MI (AP)- Donald Trump threw in the towel over the weekend following his compassionate and timely distribution of much-needed Play-Doh to flood-ravaged Louisiana, ending the biggest con of his career… a fraudulent Screen Shot 2016-08-21 at 9.16.24 AM“campaign” for a job he never really wanted, never dreamed he might actually attain, and knew all along he was unqualified for–President of the United States. A body of thought has been emerging that Trump is tanking the election…. losing on purpose for a post-November world of a Trump mega-media venture; thus the suicidal hiring of the alt-right, racist, super-hateful Breitbart guy, Stephen Bannon. Following the airing of his first campaign ad, which shows illegal immigrants running wild in a crime-ridden, dark, disturbing country under Hillary Clinton… contrasted with a Trump-led sunny, law-abiding, happy “(Morning In) America” homeland, Trump admitted it really was one, big, scam.

Two clues emerged the past few days indicating that Trump, unbeknownst to his most ardent supporters, would soon be returning officially to the Democratic Party. First was the stellar performance of the US Olympic team in Rio de Janeiro. Trump had pre-planned and prepared a series of brilliant tweets that were to have connected the anticipated failure of the American athletes to Hillary Clinton and President Obama, under whom we “never win anymore… not in trade, not with our decimated military, and not in the Olympics. Sad.” This strategy, insisted upon by former campaign CEO and Russian liaison Paul Manafort, backfired spectacularly when the United States team performed magnificently. Manafort had insisted that this strategy had worked when he was advising president Sergei Danislovsky, dictator for life of Obfuscaristan, when he was running for office in 1997. Trump fired Manafort when it became numerically impossible for the United States to not be great at the Games, undermining the plan.

The second clue that Trump was a Manchurian Republican intent on losing was his consistent use of the phrase, “Democratic” Party, instead of the preferred slur “Democrat” Party. Long used by Republican politicans, operatives, and especially radio talk jockeys like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Michael Savage, “Democrat” Party indicates you are a true hater, a part of the club, you wish to reach back to the ugly days of Tom DeLay and Richard Nixon, who used the word with impunity and style, inspired by Joe McCarthy and even Wendell Wilkie before him. To not use “Democrat Party” is to show an inexcusable degree of respect and to signal that you’re not on the Republican team. In Wisconsin last week while ordering black people to vote for him, (see his book, “The Art of the Seduction,”) Trump said, “The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community,” In Michigan he said, “The inner cities of our country have been run by the Democratic Party for 50 years. Their policies have produced only poverty, joblessness, failing schools, and broken homes. It is time to hold Democratic Politicians accountable for what they have done to these communities. It is time to hold failed leaders accountable for their results, not just their empty words.” The King of Insult Politics…. the man who knocked out more than 15 opponents in the primary portion of the campaign with a non-stop General Sherman-style march of misogyny, anger, hate, racism, unapologetic bile… now can’t call the opposition the Democrat Party? Pathetic. Weak. Over. See Trump say Democratic here:

Mommy, it’s not fair. The Brits get to ban Trump and we can’t!

I watched the Should Trump Be Banned From Britain debate on C-SPAN from Westminster Hall in London on MLK Day in the United States. One thing is always apparent when you watch the British Parliament: their politicians are way more articulate than ours. The I-disagree-with-the-blowhard-but-free-speech-rules arguments were quite stirring, and banning Trump would play into his hands perfectly.  He’d be joining quite an illustrious list of the previously Banned in Britain that includes Fred Phelps, Rev. Moon, Omar Bin Laden, Michael Savage, Edward Snowden, Mike Tyson, Chris Brown, and Martha Stewart.  More from the UK Mirror here.

Gavin Robinson of the Democratic Unionist Party said, “I want to see Donald Trump come to this country and be grilled by Members of Parliament…. I want them to challenge him and get a sense of the fury and frustration with his xenophobic remarks..”

Edward Leigh, Conservative (Gainsborough): “… if we only allow free speech for those we agree with, is that free speech at all?”

And eloquent MP Tom Tugendhut: “While I think this man is crazy…. this man has no valid points to make. I will not be the one to silence his voice. So when I think now about what we should do, I say we should stand aside, and we should wait for an American to come forward like the great Joseph Welch did, chief counsel for the US Army, where he looked at Senator McCarthy in the ’54 trials and said, ‘have you no shame, sir? At long last have you no sense of decency?’ Screen shot 2016-01-18 at 12.44.22 PMBecause if someone will say that to Trump, surely that is better than for us to legislate on the freedom of expression and the freedom of travel of the system of that great country, the United States.”  Wonderfully said…. and quite hopeful.  But so far, this is a guy who has no shame, and certainly no sense of decency.

Just for fun, it should be noted that the United States’ recent banned list is nowhere close to as fun at the UK’s.  It includes Gerry Adams, the Irish guy, Boy George, Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) and Kurt Waldheim, the UN Nazi guy.
