Let’s Talk About Trump..
Here’s the thing about Trump, he doesn’t care.
So let’s review the latest episodes of P.T. Barnum’s run for the Presidency 2.0. shall we?
He said John McCain was not a Hero. (Yes, I know he quickly thereafter said McCain WAS a Hero… Four times… but he still said it.)
One might wonder why McCain isn’t picking up the ball on defending his status.
Well, McCain was the one who picked the fight with Trump. Bet you didn’t know that part.
Trump had a rally in Phoenix and around 15,000 people showed up.
McCain called those people “Crazies”.
Trump was asked how he felt about a War Hero calling His Supporters, and His Policy Proposals, “Crazy”.
Trump returned the personal insult.
Now, Tuesday July 21st 2015, Trump is being accused of calling Lyndsey Graham and “Idiot”. (He did.) He also gave out Graham’s personal cell phone number.
Well, Lyndsey picked a fight with P.T. when he called him a “Jackass”. Bet you didn’t know that part.
And… Trump returned the insult.
(For full disclosure, I happen to think both McCain and Graham are Ass Clowns. And both of them are posters boys for what’s wrong with this country. One is just a bit more heroic than the other. As to which, you decide.)
Look, as far as I’m concerned Trump is enjoying attention right now because the GOP Establishment has Flooded the Field with Mediocre Candidates in Order to dilute the available Oxygen in the room for Conservatarians like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz of whom they are very, very afraid. The Establishment knows full well that in the off-chance you might actually listen to either of these men first hand, and not what is fed to you by the Leftist and Establishment Media, you might agree with them. But their tactic to distract you from serious candidates has opened up a Huge Hole with a Comb Over. So here comes Trump saying what the people want to hear and simply doesn’t care how the media feels about it.
There are two interesting aspects to Barnum’s circus.
First, the Liberal Media believe they are harming the GOP by playing Trumps words in endless loops while pouring derision upon him.
(I think this is having the exact opposite effect.)
Second, the Liberal Republicans believe Trump is Harming them, Liberal Establishment RINO’s not the GOP, by saying what is on everyone’s mind but the PC bullies have successfully been able to silence.
(They are correct.)
In the end Trump will run his course. But before that happens he will have moved the window back to where reasoned minds can debate. That is if the Leftist Media keep pushing the microphone into his face and the Establishment keeps reacting in fear.
Let’s hope so.
In the end, is Trump an A-Hole? Yep.
But he’s a useful A-Hole.
However, he is not a Presidential A-Hole.
