Ok, not really. But believable, right?? With all his hyper-self-promoting-pandering-to-the-masses ramblings, nothing is off the table. Here are some other possible campaign slogans that wouldn’t surprise me:
“Me Me Me”
“I’m white and damn proud of it!”
“Let me show you my money”
[Full disclosure: I’m feeling absolutely sick to my stomach writing a post about Donald Trump and a possible presidential run. <shit, I just threw up a little>]
I’m absolutely baffled as to why ANYONE takes this buffoon seriously. Here are some recent highlights of his idiocy:
a. He promises to use swear words when negotiating with foreign countries.
b. He’ll serve McDonald’s at some state dinners for those countries he feels are being unfair to the US.
c. He takes full, unabashed credit for Obama producing his long-form birth certificate (even when his short-form birth certificate has been available for three years and that’s all most of us have anyway). He’s “very proud” of himself. And he does this right in front of his personal helicopter with his name plastered all over it in huge letters.
d. He championed birtherism (and he still wants to inspect the long-form to make sure it is legit).
e. He is hot after getting Obama’s college transcripts because he thinks Obama is hiding something there. He’s suspicious about Obama’s admissions to Columbia and Harvard.
f. He follows Palin’s lead in going after any media person who says something bad about him.
g. He calls all our nation’s leaders “stupid.”
h. He claims that his renting and selling properties counts for more than enough foreign policy experience.
Points d and e are just covert ways of being racist. Bob Schieffer of CBS’ Face the Nation said that Trump’s suspicion over Obama getting into Columbia University is “just code for saying he got into law school because he’s black. This is an ugly strain of racism that’s running through this whole thing.” Right on Bob!! Call it like it is.
But why does this racist goof get any traction! Is our nation that racist? I guess so. Is our nation that stupid to pay attention to this crap? Sure is. Is our nation that fascinated by pontificating, immature egomaniacs? Of course it is! Remember Charlie Sheen!? There was a media blitz around his own on-air self-destruction. BUT everyone saw Sheen as precisely what he is – an egomaniac with extreme delusions about himself. So why does Trump get traction where Sheen just slides out of the spotlight??
Let me repeat for the sake of emphasis. Donald Trump and Charlie Sheen are practically the same person. But Sheen was ridiculed and rightly so. Why isn’t Trump? Is it because of his racism? Is it that Trump packages himself together just a little bit better than Sheen? Is it because Trump links himself with a possible presidential run and the other Republican hopefuls are pathetic? Granted, many many people do not take Trump seriously and they do lump him into the same category as Sheen. But there are many many others who really do esteem Trump and think that he would be a great president! <oh god, I threw up a little again> Some lady at Trump’s last speaking engagement shouted, “Run for president!” and Trump responded, “I think I am going to make you very happy on that.” How is it even possible that this is even a serious possibility???
Donald Trump embodies almost everything wrong with this country. He’s an arrogant, capitalist, white, egotistic, ignorant, racist, rich man-whore who makes his living off of financially screwing other people. The more this guy gets into the spotlight as someone we should care about listening to, the more we should be slapped in the face. Someone should slap me now for even writing a post about him.
“I’ve got a big dick!” It would not surprise me one bit if he ran on that. Hell, I bet he’d even make Charlie Sheen his VP. <oops, there went the rest of lunch>
