Believe The Beggars



Couldn't be true, could it? Could a person make such a clueless, ironic, self-canceling statement and be serious? Surely someone made it up.

Nope.

Donald Trump, unable to stop beating a dead horse and ride it into the setting dawn, had this to say about Mr. Khan, the Gold Star father who spoke at the DNC:
"While I feel deeply for the loss of his son, Mr. Khan who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions of people and claim I have never read the Constitution, (which is false) and say many other inaccurate things. If I become President, I will make America safe again."
No need to point out the obvious obliviousness. It loquiturs the res gooder'n I could ipsa. But, just to frost the chickens on their roost, I must point out that Mr. Khan did not accuse the leader of the Republican Party of never having read the Constitution. He asked if he had. And as long as we're loquituring, how 'bout sequituring? What do his preceding claims have to do with "making America safe again?"

Also, I think we all know he couldn't give less of a shit about the man's son.

In the same conversation, as has been reported, he also accused the NYT of not being able to write good.

My mother, who is going to be 92, grew up in a Republican family, volunteered for the Republican Party for many years, and has always voted straight-ticket Republican.

On Sunday she declared that she will not vote for Donald Trump.

Trump is going to fail and he'll be found at the bottom of a landslide.

This just gets better and better, doesn't it? I can't wait to open the news sites each morning now to see if The Donald has put his foot in something new.

Another thing I found amusing is Trump suggesting Khan's wife wasn't 'allowed' to speak. How many times has Melania stood silently next to (or behind) Trump on a stage?

My impression has become that Trump really doesn't care if he wins. At least not as much as he CRAVES attention. So much so that it is impossible for his advisors to reign him in. Perhaps Trump himself doesn't see it, but he is pathologically incapable of restraining his ego. While that has been obvious for years, his total lack of self control and focus for the
Presidency is breathtaking. Even W gets that.

If You Can't Persuade Them, Threaten Them

Well, of course he was kidding . I mean, after all, it's not like his entire career was one of bullying, suing, threatening, and lyin...
