This is Donald Trump, after a woman fainted at one of his rallies:
... When she came back, after being treated for passing out in the tarmac heat, Trump boasted that his supporters were tough — tougher, even, than the safety rules in place to protect professional football players. “That woman was out cold, and now she’s coming back,” Trump said from the podium. “See, we don’t go by these new, and very much softer, NFL rules. Concussions — ‘Uh oh, got a little ding on the head? No, no, you can’t play for the rest of the season’ — our people are tough.”...
At this point, he could save himself and his supporters a lot of time by reducing his speeches to this:
"I'm an asshole. I'm the best asshole, that I can tell you. I have great asshole words, believe me. I know more about being an asshole than anyone, even some pretty great assholes. Vote for me because I'm an asshole and so are you."

  1. You're a braver man that I, Doc. Voluntarily to subject myself to an entire speech of his is a level of harm to my psyche I'm unwilling to risk.

  2. I doubt that. I feel less brave and more like an innocent bystander, today a casualty of my wife's news watching. The fault is mine for not running to another corner of the house.

    I can't write more right now. The thoughts are not good.

  3. Then stay away from sharp or otherwise dangerous devices.

  4. I'm thinking Trump is actually the ulcer on the asshole perhaps the result of a strain of bacteria (ignorance) that is severely resistant to anti biotics (science, facts)

  5. I could only watch for 15 minutes of The Dump. I am really durable. I watched 24 hours of FOX 'news' recently. I got to about 15 minutes in and wondered why I didn't turn it off at five minutes when I told myself to turn it off.

    I did see Michelle kill the hopes and dreams of the Confederacy. She wrote the speech she gave today by herself. No shit...and she killed it. Easily the best speech this campaign season.

    Michelle was not talkin' about eat fruits and veggies. Michelle publicly smashed Trump. A black woman won the election for Hillary Clinton today.

    I am currently writing a tribute to "locker room towel snapping"...or whatever Trump thinks goes on in locker rooms.

    I'll end the mystery...Here's what is said in actual real men, mens locker rooms...

    We talk about the win or loss. We complain about aches and pains. Organizing an after party. Food. We all shower together naked.

    That's it. Seriously. It's a lot less glamorous than most folks might imagine it being. Also? Women can walk into any locker room including the boys. Girl Power on that! Title Nine is easily in the top 10 of womens rights they had to fight for. If we can fix the pay gap, I wouldn't have much to complain about.

  6. I want to add to my prior comment.

    My closing remark about "the thoughts" referred to my conscious thoughts regarding Trump, not anything inspired by a chemical imbalance in the brain. It was an unfortunate choice of words. I meant no disrespect or offense to those who suffer from mental illness or their loved ones.

    My wife and I have a son with schizophrenia. More than most, I should know better and be more careful with my words.

  7. I think your intention was unmistakable.

  8. Thanks, I thought it was, too. Living with mental illness every day has a way of making one very sensitive to the plight of the afflicted.

    It's another thing that Trump surely doesn't understand and one that he wouldn't hesitate to mock.

  9. Yeah, same here. I didn't skip a beat.

  10. "I think your intention was unmistakable."

    +100 on that...Seen it with my own eyes.

    "Living with mental illness every day has a way of making one very sensitive to the plight of the afflicted."

    That's all I've ever seen from you. You are unique. You could lead the charge on that issue (stigmatize/marginalize the issue.) You got the cred...

    People have no idea what it's like to live every day with mental illness. But if you live it every day, your perspective completely changes.

  11. Thanks, Smooth. I really appreciate that.
