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’ve been running this love fest with presidential candidate Donald Trump for over five weeks with no idea where it’s 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 consideration that Donald Trump is supremely presidential:
Donald Trump has been learning and evolving on the campaign trail. Take ISIS, for example:
November 13: “I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me.”
So Trump must have a plan of his own for defeating ISIS? Yes indeed, but he wants to keep it a secret:
May 27: “All I can tell you is that it is a foolproof way of winning.”
Oh come on, Donald, tell us the plan:
Today: “I am also going to convene my top generals and give them a simple instruction: They will have 30 days to submit to the Oval Office a plan for defeating ISIS.”
I guess the generals have gotten smarter in the past few months. Good work, Obama!
What genius! It took someone the caliber of Donald Trump to see through this haze of confusion surrounding the war against religious fundamentalism. Also, it is by now obvious that the generals have not gotten smarter. Not to worry. In the event Donald Trump wins the election, he has a solution:
Donald Trump trod into uncharted territory Wednesday night when he suggested that if elected he might fire some of the top generals now running the military.
As the Republican presidential nominee slammed the foreign policy of President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, he also targeted the top officers who have served under them, who are not political appointees and have defined terms of appointment.
Individual generals and admirals have traditionally been removed from their posts for misconduct or a failure to perform their duties. Cashiering a group of them en masse would be unheard of — and could irrevocably tarnish the perception that the military is an institution divorced from politics.
It’s boldness like this that has allowed Donald Trump to rise to the top in a field of Republican Party candidates.
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.
