Diatribe: Five “Trumpisms” To Make Us Think.

08/07/2015

Trump 2There’s no question that Donald Trump is comfortable in front of television cameras and since, according to recent polls, he’s the current favorite in the enormous lineup of GOP 2016 Presidential hopefuls it’s not surprising that he commanded the most attention during last night’s televised debate.

Not surprisingly, a good deal of the attention that he received was the result of some of the bizarre things that he had to say … or didn’t say … as he avoided answering questions and talked in circles seemingly focused more on being entertaining than honest.  Here are five of the most obnoxious things he had to say.

KellyWhen Fox moderator Megyn Kelly challenged Trump about his history of referring to women as “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals,” Trump responded: “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”

Trump explained why he believes the United States has failed to secure its border: “Our leaders are stupid, our politicians are stupid and the Mexican government is much smarter.”

Confronted with his past donations to Hillary Clinton, Trump explained that he was just trying to buy influence over her: “With Hillary, I said be at my wedding. And she came to my wedding. She had no choice.”

Trump gave his polite assessment of President Obama’s foreign policy: “I would say he’s incompetent, but I don’t want to do that, because that’s not nice.”

iranHe described how Iran would benefit from the newly signed nuclear agreement: “If Iran was a stock you should go out and buy it, cause you’ll quadruple.”

If the object of last night’s debate was to generate the most “buzz” in the media then Trump was the clear winner.  If the purpose of his appearance was to be taken seriously as a politician and the potential leader of the free world … maybe not.

  2. He’s a circus barker and if the GOP thinks he’s their golden child, they are in for a rude awakening because [t]Rump only does what’s best for [t]Rump.

  3. Trump has too many things in his lifelong duffel bag that will start seeping out. He has likely offended almost every group of people, not to mention some of his financial dealings and many temper tantrums. He has sued the Scottish energy commission over offshore windmills that could be seen from his golf course and he has sued a Florida airport for flying jets over his house. He lost both. The Scots even asked “who the heck is this guy? Answer a rich arrogant American who is used to getting his way.

  4. Donald Trump as President – laughable if he weren’t so pathetic and such a commentary on politics in our country. If he said it once, he said it six times – that he used the “law” to dupe people out of their livelihoods and careers. Shame on you, Donald Trump. Not only did you do it, you bragged about it on national TV.

    I think those writing of concern or fear with the Trump candidacy are missing the point. He knows he likely doesnt have a chance at the nomination, but in the meantime he is getting invaluable publicity, while disrupting the other 16 complacent candidates and the RNC. I support his run as long as it goes, because he is saying things that the Repubs support but are too scared to say. He is showing the rest of us just exactly what the Repubs stand for. He is a major disruptor, and I support his effort.

    The dems, should, too.
