Don’t Bump The Trump

One of a series


A warning for those who chance to meet a wild Trump coming home late at night, past a graveyard, all alone in a storm: Don’t bump the Trump. [With apologies to Shel Silverstein.]

It’s game on. Self-professed billionaire Donald Trump earlier snatched the campaign torch from the Republican Party by scooping up conservative America’s low-hanging fruit. Full disclosure: it’s something I proclaimed over a year ago could not be done. I was wrong! How wrong? Very wrong. I completely failed to take into account Donald Trump’s firm grasp of reality:

Washington (CNN) — Donald Trump hit presidential campaign turbulence Friday for his handling of a town hall participant’s comment about President Barack Obama’s religion — but this was only the most recent time the real estate mogul stirred controversy over the President’s background.

Trump has long been one of the most vocal skeptics about Obama’s birthplace and faith.
Four years ago, Trump mounted a campaign to pressure Obama to release his long-form birth certificate, even saying he would send investigators to Hawaii to find out the truth. The effort helped fuel the so-called “birther” conspiracy theory that held that Obama was born in Kenya — and Trump also floated the idea that Obama’s birth documents may label him a Muslim.

All right. There have been times when The Donald strayed carelessly into the magical world of make believe. But all that was so yesterday. Since Mr. Trump became a serious candidate for President of the United States, he has reined in his penchant for flights of the imagination:

First, raise an outrageous untruth: Trump throws a rhetorical grenade at rival Ted Cruz on the day of the critical Indiana primary, linking Cruz’s father to the man who shot President John F. Kennedy. Cruz’s father calls the charge “ludicrous” and PolitiFact agrees, rating it Pants on Fire.

Actually, folks, it’s not a delusion if you don’t believe it.

Yeah, it’s game on. We are going to have more fun between now and November. We can be assured Donald Trump will never fail to entertain us.
