This liar is about to be a major party’s nominee unless a miracle hits or he announces he really doesn’t want the job anyway. After all, the accommodations at the White House aren’t nearly as regal as those at his mansion in Florida.
Ok, go ahead, say it. All politicians lie. I get that. But that don't all lie like Trump -- bald-faced, in-your-face, out-and-out lies.
Trump is a liar. He can call others that, but it takes one to know one, to get to the sandbox level of debate he began. He said he didn’t know who David Duke was, he knows. And all I need is one lie to prove he is a liar. I won’t get into other stupid things he’s said. Oh, hell, sure I will:
- He said John McCain is a loser because he was captured by the enemy
- He told a roomful of Jewish businessmen that he “didn’t need your money” to run for president
- He said things I refuse to repeat about a Fox news personality
- He wants to build an $8-$12 billion wall to block off anyone coming here from Mexico. Oh, and he’ll get Mexico to pay for it.
- He wants to evict 11 million illegal aliens
Need I go on? This man wants to be President. Of the United States. Of America.
I get it. People are pissed and Trump is the, ignore the next few words if you are easily offended, the piss vessel they have chosen to carry their anger forward.
Think about this: Who would he choose as his vice president. Lord forbid, who would he nominate to his Cabinet? Advise and Consent? Really? You think there’s a stalemate over the next Supreme Court nominee, wait for the Trump appointees to make their ways to the Hill. Sure GOP senators will be disposed to approve them – but assuming there’s a crazy name or 14, they have to at least question them to do their duty. Don’t they??
He thinks he’s running for king, not president. He’s going to change the libel laws (as if he had the power) to make it easier for him to “win lots of money” from The New York Time sand Washington Post. Can you spell Alien and Sedition Act? He thinks judges sign laws – heck, his sister, who is a judge, apparently signed a law, he said, as did a Supreme Court justice. Lord have mercy! Where is that in the Constitution?? Or maybe it will be once President Trump inserts it, because he apparently will think he has that power too.
And this bumpkin is out-maneuvering the smartest in the GOP, or what’s left of the GOP?
Chris Christie, a whore if I’ve ever seen one, stood and introduced Mr. Trump, as he refers to him, last night to accept his wins on Super Tuesday. Trump called Christie, “Chris.” So we now the balance of power in that relationship. Must be because Chris Christie, who heretofore, has taken a back seat to no man or woman, then stood silently behind Mister Trump and tried to look adoringly at him. Please, Chris, we know you want to be Vice President, a little less ambition would look good on you. Maybe.
I’ve written that if the party this year were to nominate a right-winger, say a Cruz, and he lost, then the right-wingers would have to stop saying “if only we’d stop nominating squishes, we’d win.” And then we maybe could see the GOP fall back into a more reasonable political posture.
Well, if Trump is the nominee, when he loses, it may achieve the same goal, or not. He is not a right winger. I’m not sure what he is other than a businessman who is out for himself. If Trump loses there will be, I hope, a battle for the future of the GOP.
If Trump wins, I guarantee you The Wall will not be built. Eleven million people will not be kicked out of the country. And if as president he were to waste his time on those things, I can’t imagine what happens with the other important issues that would be ignored.
I cannot imagine one out of 10 African Americans or one out of 10 Hispanic Americans will vote for Trump. I gotta believe he is doing for Hillary what Hillary couldn’t do for herself – move more women to vote for her than likely would have if she was against a sane opponent. And I have to believe that the one-third of Republicans who are moderates will all either not vote, vote for a third-party or, gosh almighty, vote for Hillary.
Then again, I was the one who said he’d never win a primary.
