These are amazing times. Six days until the election, and Americans are still gushing over an unpolished phony running for the office of President. Full disclosure: it’s something I proclaimed over a year ago could never happen. I was wrong! How wrong I was is becoming clear. The fervent hope is that justice will shortly be served where it is long overdue.
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 I 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.
Here is a detour into a major aspect of the Trump candidacy—his supporters. Trump supporters are loyal if nothing else. Donald Trump once boasted his support would be unwavering, no matter what:
Sioux Center, Iowa (CNN) — Donald Trump boasted Saturday that support for his presidential campaign would not decline even if he shot someone in the middle of a crowded street.
“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,” Trump said at a campaign rally here.
After the event, Trump declined to answer when asked by CNN to clarify his comments.
Trump declined to clarify. In truth, no clarification is needed. I polled some Trump supporters earlier this year, getting the response that they really do not care. Supporters apply a different standard when it comes to their favorite candidate.
Does this say anything about the candidate? No, it says a lot about the people who support him.
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 election day. We can be assured Donald Trump will never fail to entertain us.
