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.]

I started this thing about presidential candidate Donald Trump over three weeks ago with no idea where it was heading. Now I find I will be able to post a new item every day from now until November without repeating myself. Thank you, Mr. Trump. It’s the nicest thing anybody’s ever done for me. Thank you very very very much!

Self-obsessed 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 that Donald Trump is extraordinarily presidential:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump promised to “quickly and decisively bomb the hell out of ISIS” in one of four new radio ads that are running in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, the first three states to weigh in during the Republican primary contest.

 

It is not clear to some what Mr. Trump has in mind about bombing ISIS (Islamic State In Syria, otherwise known as Daesh). Would that amount to “carpet bombing,” such as was practiced in the war against Germany and Japan over 70 years ago. It’s an interesting thought, but most likely if it were something that would work it would have already been done. Mr. Trump has additional thoughts regarding massive strikes on our enemies:

Donald Trump’s campaign on Wednesday denied a report that said the Republican presidential nominee had repeatedly asked an international foreign policy expert why the U.S. couldn’t use nuclear weapons.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough claimed that the expert, who he did not name, advised the real estate mogul earlier this year during an hour-long briefing in which Trump had allegedly asked about using nuclear weapons three times, Scarborough said on Morning Joe.

The lead off in the foregoing notes that current presidential candidate Trump denied asking why this country should not use nuclear weapons. Good move. If I were to expose my ignorance in such a way, I would be tempted to later denying having said anything like that. But only if I could get away with it. The reason Mr. Trump has difficulty denying this conversation is that it is the kind of thing he is accustomed to saying.

Mr. Trump, you live by the loose tongue, you die by the loose tongue.

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.

Continue reading. And may Jesus have mercy on your soul.
