Diatribe: Five “Trumpisms” To Make Us Think.
There’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.
When 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.”
He 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.
