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 six weeks and counting 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 account that Donald Trump’s abiding respect for the truth:
All politicians bend the truth to fit their purposes, including Hillary Clinton. But Donald J. Trump has unleashed a blizzard of falsehoods, exaggerations and outright lies in the general election, peppering his speeches, interviews and Twitter posts with untruths so frequent that they can seem flighty or random — even compulsive.
However, a closer examination, over the course of a week, revealed an unmistakable pattern: Virtually all of Mr. Trump’s falsehoods directly bolstered a powerful and self-aggrandizing narrative depicting him as a heroic savior for a nation menaced from every direction. Mike Murphy, a Republican strategist, described the practice as creating “an unreality bubble that he surrounds himself with.”
The New York Times closely tracked Mr. Trump’s public statements from Sept. 15-21, and assembled a list of his 31 biggest whoppers, many of them uttered repeatedly. This total excludes dozens more: Untruths that appeared to be mere hyperbole or humor, or delivered purely for effect, or what could generously be called rounding errors. Mr. Trump’s campaign, which dismissed this compilation as “silly,” offered responses on every point, but in none of the following instances did the responses support his assertions.
Oh, Jesus! Would you look at that. That liberal rag, The New York Times, is getting nit-picky again. I mean, look what Times writers
He said a supportive crowd chanted, “Let him speak!” when a black pastor in Flint, Mich., asked Mr. Trump not to give a political speech in the church.FOX NEWS INTERVIEW, SEPT. 15.There were no such chants.
Just because Donald Trump said the crowd chanted, “Let him speak!” when no such thing actually happened, that’s no reason to splash it all over the pages of The New York Times for Mr. Trump’s friends and business associates to see. These left wing media jerks need to show a little more compassion. Apparently that is not about to happen, because right after printing the foregoing the pair re-invested and shoveled up more:
“I was against going into the war in Iraq.”SPEECH IN FLORIDA, SEPT. 19.This is not getting any truer with repetition. He never publicly expressed opposition to the war before it began, and he made supportive remarks to Howard Stern.
See? They keep going on an on. Where’s it going to end? Are politicians going to be forevermore taken to task whenever they let loose a whopper that sails over the goal post? Heaven help us. I’m sick of the whole business, and I’m not going to show you anymore of what’s been written. You’re going to have to follow the link and read for yourself.
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.
