It really is unbelievable. Eight days until the election, and the Donald Trump story keeps rolling on—seemingly supported by thin air. Never has a candidate so obviously unqualified gotten this close to election without caving under the weight of his own impropriety.
Previously I aimed this series of posts at the comedy surrounding a narcissistic businessman vying for a job requiring real character. Now I’m leaving the high road and will be calling things as they are. As a reminder, 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! Wrong I was, though it is becoming clear by the hour that justice is being served where it’s long overdue.
Amazingly, The Donald continues to claim support from
There are number of problems with this claim: He early drew support from his base by announcing that illegal immigrants from Mexico were druggies, rapists and thugs (my wording). Then when a federal judge refused to toss the cast against Trump University, Donald Trump asserted he was unqualified to rule on the matter, because his parents were immigrants from Mexico. Trump broadly hinted to blacks that they are being exploited by Democrats, and that the American black community is rife with criminal activity. Not so much Trump, but Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, is a notorious anti-gay advocate. Lest any one of these points escape the reader, allow me to illustrate one:
Donald Trump held a rally in Sanford, Florida, on Tuesday. For the second time in less than two weeks, several Twitter users noted that a woman holding a “Blacks for Trump” sign appeared to be white.
Although there are many blacks who support the Trump candidacy, apparently there are not enough of them to make a reliable showing at his rallies. There may be a reason for this:
Donald Trump ejected a black man waving a note at him at a North Carolina rally, after accusing him of being a “thug” hired by Democrats to disrupt the event.
But C.J. Cary, the man who was thrown out, claims he is a Trump supporter and was merely trying to deliver a message to the candidate to mend ties with some key demographic groups the GOP presidential nominee has offended.
At the Wednesday campaign rally in the town of Kinston, Cary stood a few dozen feet from the stage trying to get Trump’s attention by waving a note and yelling “Donald,” the Raleigh News & Observer reported.
Trump assumed Cary was a disruptive protester.
“Were you paid $1,500 to be a thug?” Trump asked Cary, according to the Observer. The real estate mogul then asked security to remove him.
A person more than blind will get the impression of an underlying current in the Trump candidacy.
Meanwhile, right on schedule, Donald Trump’s journey to self destruction continues, much as I predicted over a year ago. I post here the signature banner for this 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.]
Enjoying my excursion into schadenfreude, I have this to say. Thank you, Mr. Trump. It’s the nicest thing anybody’s ever done for me.Thank you very, very, very much!
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.
