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.]
Previously I aimed this series of posts at the humor surrounding a narcissistic businessman vying for a job that requires more than an ounce of real character. Now I’m leaving the high road and will be calling things as they are. In the meantime, 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!
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 increasingly unclear why. Donald Trump is predictably coming to a crashing end in his unbelievable quest for national leadership. It is becoming difficult by the hour to find reliable support for this candidate, now only three weeks before the election. Here is one example of extreme grasping (see the screen shot above):
Trump’s supporters quickly began digging to determine whether Leeds had any links to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and eventually side-by-side screenshots (reproduced above) began appearing on Twitter that compared the phone number of a Jessica Leeds in Manhattan to the phone number of a Clinton Foundation staffer that had been published in recent WikiLeaks e-mail dumps. However, the final four digits of Leeds’ phone number were blurred out, and the WikiLeaks document to which the entry was being compared was difficult to read:
Barbara and David Mikkelson have been debunking (and sometimes not) phony items of wisdom for 21 years. Their Web site, snopes.com, has become the goto site for the straight skinny on urban legends and outright fabrications. The Jessica Leeds story seems to be one of the latter.

She only cares about herself, no one else.

1 ReplyJohn Cleland Look at Trump’s wives and girlfriends. Then look at these people who accuse him of secual misconduct. Its easy to see thst he is into ladies with super model looks. Look again at his accusers and decide for yourself’ who is telling lies for political purposes?
I copied and pasted the foregoing from Facebook, deleting images and some irrelevant text. But zero in on the flavor of the comments. For example: “Look at Trump’s wives and girlfriends. Then look at these people who accuse him of secual misconduct. Its easy to see thst he is into ladies with super model looks. Look again at his accusers and decide for yourself’ who is telling lies for political purposes?”
That has a familiar ring:
This is the point in the conversation when I want to finish one of the most unfinished statements in modern politics: “Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you. She would be my second or possibly third choice.” Apparently, The Donald has discriminating tastes about whom he sexually assaults. We should all be so lucky.
It’s difficult for me to imagine so large a collection of American humanity marching in this lock-step manner. Is this a structure that existed BT (before Trump), or is the Trump campaign an incredible crystallizing agent? All accounts point to a Trump debacle in three weeks, and his following will begin to cast about for a root cause, for targets of blame. It will be interesting to watch. Not beautiful, but interesting, nonetheless.
A concluding note. The Facebook friend who previously posted a Like on this item has since removed it from her feed. It could be the word is getting around.
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.
