"I'd like to punch him in the face." And, by golly, just a few days later, someone did. In the above video, look at the guy behind him when Trump says that. Thinks it's fabulous.
As I've said, these people that Trump has drawn out from under their rocks will remain no matter what happens to Trump's candidate. I wish I had the words to express how deeply depressing it is that a man like Trump, on the votes of people like that old guy doing the laughing, is the leading candidate of a formerly respectable political party.
I just watched a couple of minutes of his rally today, after the debate in which they all tried to act "presidential." It was the same: a protester thrown out, Trump mocking him. Compare and contrast: ever seen Obama with a heckler? See how he tells the crowd to let him speak? Engages in respectful dialog?
How many people like that guy laughing behind Trump claim, as does a person with whom I've had a recent conversation, that Obama doesn't believe in American "exceptionalism?" Well, if we're a country that can lionize someone like Donald Trump, who can deny that we're exceptional?
