I fully realize Trump’s use of extremely simple language “we’re gonna win,” “Mexico/China/Everyone is ripping us off,” mixed with his insufferable bragging about himself, his alleged wealth, his unmatched negotiating skills (he’s never, EVER been outwitted), and his nonstop schoolyard victories over all enemies… from the media to his opponents and now to the Pope…is working wonderfully for him. I believe the only thing worse than politics as usual is politics as Trump–Conman of Conmen.
The only thing worse than Trump reading a statement (he does it rarely and only when it’s on a subject that demands The Thoughtfulness of a Poet… as in his prepared words on Muslim-banning back in December and this past week attacking the Pope, who, of course, viciously attacked first)… the only thing WORSE is every other moment he’s speaking. Trump’s inability to say things that really make sense on rudimentary examination baffle those of us not in his corner; we can’t believe others are so dumb. But we’ll find out soon if that holds, or if this know-nothing but slick-talking New Yawk proprietor of the Art of the Spiel runs out of ethanol, which, naturally, he became a new, big fan of back in Iowa.
A bully for punching the disabled reporter, the Univision guy who is kicked out of the rally in addition to protesters who are tossed….Trump just remembered this past week how to count again. He decided ahead of the South Carolina primary to attack anything with a billion or more of anything attached to it: Pope Francis of 1.4 billion Catholics, Pope Tim Cook of the Church of Apple—millions of customers & over a billion devices sold, and finally….McDonald’s–I remember as a kid when they finally changed the signs to “billions sold.”
Since Trump is never held down and tortured into admitting he’s a no-nothing, pandering liar… it was great to see him shown here Thursday, by his own mouth, what a fake he is…. via CNN:
Anderson Cooper: “I understand that you’re a big fast food guy as well, that you actually bring fast food to your plane sometimes. When you roll up at McDonald’s, what does Donald Trump order?”
Donald Trump: “The Fish Delight sometimes. [laughter from audience] The Big Macs are great, the Quarter Pounders with cheese.”
Sorry, but before anyone talks of “litmus tests” for Supreme Court nominees…. I’ve got one for presidential nominees: if you call a McDonald’s Filet-o-Fish a “Fish Delight,” you’re fired! YOU are the one whose citizenship I question. What part of the brain did those words come spilling out of? The “two Corinthians” part, I gather.
