I swore to myself at some point that I wouldn’t give that ferret-headed, boorish narcissist any time on this blog. There are enough media outlets giving him the validation and attention he so desperately craves, and I didn’t want to be part of that crew.
But no… Trump had to go and overstep even the high watermark of his own shitbaggery this week, and so here I am… blogging about that mega-douche. I hate myself, but I’m going to do it anyway. So let’s start with a few facts here.
As you may have guessed, hell will freeze over before I cast a vote in Trump’s direction. If that douche tool gets the GOP nomination, I will not just vote for Hillary or Bernie Sanders, or whichever Democrat decides to make a run for the White House, I will actively campaign for them. I might vote Libertarian, depending on whether or not the LP candidate makes the ballot here in Virginia, but there’s no way in hell I will EVER support Trump.
No, it’s not because of the stupid hair that looks like a small animal crawled onto his head and died there.
No, it’s not because I’m somehow afraid of him telling it like it is. Frankly, I’d love a candidate who really spoke the truth – a direct and honest candidate who is capable of understanding the issues and speaking to them eloquently and intelligently. Trump ain’t it.
It’s because Trump is an immature, narcissistic, boorish lout, who has little to no idea about the economy, foreign policy, national security, or anything else that’s actually important for a President of the United States to know.
Add to that the fact that he’s an ill-mannered, primitive, childish troglodyte, and you have a perfect combination of oafishness and ignorance to get yet another big-government Democrat candidate elected to the White House.
I DON’T WANT THIS DUMBASS RUNNING A NATIONAL ECONOMY.
But… but… but… but… he’s run big business, and he’s a billionaire! He has what it takes to turn this economy around!
Not just no, but FUCK NO!
Yeah, the guy is worth about $4 billion, according to Forbes, but having inherited daddy’s multi-million dollar real estate business, and bribed numerous politicians as just part of doing business, this “smart” businessman still declared bankruptcy four times!
Now, Trump claims he was just using bankruptcy laws to his corporate advantage.
Stop saying I went bankrupt. I never went bankrupt but like many great business people have used the laws to corporate advantage—smart!

Sorry, but any “businessman” who inherits his wealth and then uses bankruptcy laws to essentially avoid doing honest business has no business running a national economy. Filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows a corporation to stay in business while it re-structures and attempts to reduce its debt. So a guy who had to file for bankruptcy protection because his companies apparently couldn’t control their spending wants to run America’s economy, AND rape taxpayers more than they already are getting raped to pay down the national debt! Right. Got it?
And frankly, I don’t want someone running an economy as complex as ours whose MO is to essentially bribe politicians to gain corporate advantage. And I don’t give a crap to which party this puerile imbecile has given the most!
Oh, and by the way, considering that the wealthiest 10 percent of taxpayers already pay more than 70 percent of the total collected federal tax revenues, his idea to slap the “wealthy” with an additional one-time 14.5 percent tax to pay down the profligate spending habits of Washington politicians is putrid.
I DON’T WANT THIS DUMBASS TO HEAD OUR NATIONAL SECURITY APPARATUS AND OUR MILITARY.
Boots on the ground to fight ISIS? Really?
Preemptive strike on North Korea? Really?
“All freedoms flow from national security…” Really? Seriously? This is a person who shows little to no comprehension about the nature of fundamental rights and freedoms. Having him in the White House would be a disastrous, neocon mess.
I’m hardly a John McCain fan, as you may well know from my previous writings, but to call into question the guy’s military service and ridicule his five years as a POW is pretty much below the pale – especially from a draft dodging, privileged daddy’s boy, who claims he couldn’t serve because of bone spurs in his widdle feet!
When he grows enough balls to pick up a rifle and defend this country, then he can castigate others’ military service and be all cavalier about sending our troops to fight in the Middle East again after more than a decade of military operations. Until then, he needs to shut the fuck up and let grown ups discuss military policy.
And by the way, the Trumptarded comments about immigration, citing nebulous “border patrol people”? He really has no comprehension about why and how illegal immigrants make their way over the border. His assertion that the Mexican government is actively sending criminals over the US border is pretty bloody ridiculous. Yes, there are organizations that do exactly that, and the Mexican government has been pretty pernicious about publicly trying to bully us into allowing their criminal illegals to remain in the United States, but to claim that essentially the Mexican government is involved in human trafficking across the US border is a bit… um… unsupported, stupid, and ignores the very real issues associated with illegal immigration, including Transnational Criminal Organization (TCO) involvement, the very real profits associated with human trafficking, and corruption within the Mexican government.
The majority of illegal aliens who schlep their way into the United States do so across the Mexican border. There is a multi-billion dollar market in human trafficking, and it involves some of the most dangerous TCOs in the world, including Zetas and MS-13. And frankly, the more our governments crack down on drug trade, the more these TCOs are going to be shifting their revenue generation to less regulated endeavours. The Mexican government doesn’t have to actively do anything. Yes, there are corrupt law enforcement and security officials on the ground that are accepting bribes to help the TCOs traffic people across the border, but this does not denote a Mexican government policy of sending their trash over to our country. The issues are much more nuanced and detailed than that, but the boorish Trump-in-a-china-shop just doesn’t get them.
There are many more reasons why I would never support Trump for president. Frankly, I think he’s just embarrassing. He reminds me of that one fat, redneck uncle many of us have, who resides in a trailer park, wears sweat-stained wife beater shirts, sits around on a ratty recliner with his hand down his pants, scratching his barely-used balls, and spills his can of Bud Light all over the trailer floor as he screams about the “DAMN LIBRULS.” You don’t want to admit he’s related to you, and you don’t want to invite him to your family gatherings, but he shows up, gets drunk, engages in public policy discussions he doesn’t understand, and scares the kids at the family reunion by offering them a sip of his whiskey. I may not be the most diplomatic human being on this planet, but I also know how to behave like an adult in situations where this is required.
Trump is apparently incapable of doing so.
“Waaah! Megyn Kelly was mean to me!” If that means she refused to kiss your hairy ass by asking you tough questions about your record and about your commitment to the Republican party, then yeah. But guess what! Better Megyn Kelly than the Democratic candidate in a debate.
And better the pretty, blonde journalist from Fox News than Vladimir Putin, who is cunning and intelligent, as well as understated, besides being downright evil, and would make an even bigger jerk of Trump than Trump has made of himself.
And worse yet, Kelly’s refusal to kiss said anal orifice resulted in an avalanche of ignorance from Trump, including an allusion to Kelly perhaps being on the rag and referring to her as a “bimbo.” Well, goodness! Why else would a woman not genuflect in front of the Donald? She had to have been on the rag, right?
Of course, now Trump is showing his lack of integrity and honor by not only refusing to apologize for being a troglodyte, but is walking back his comments by claiming that’s not what he really said and/or meant!
“I cherish women,” the real estate mogul told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union,” adding that he did not mean to imply that Kelly asked him sharp questions during the debate because she was menstruating.
“Who would say that?” Trump said Sunday. “Do you think I’d make a statement like that? Who would make a statement like that? Only a sick person would even think about that.”
And of course, it wasn’t his fault. It was the rest of the Republicans who were just MEAAAAAANNNNN to him and are using his comments to paint him as the uncivilized narcissist he is!
He blamed his Republican presidential opponents for fanning the flames of controversy, and claimed he meant to refer to her “nose and/or ears” — not a woman’s period.
Trump attacked several of the Republicans who have criticized his remarks about Kelly.
And let’s not kid ourselves, it’s not the first time, Trump has gone on the offensive to females – publicly and unapologetically – merely because he didn’t like what they said or wrote about him.
As far back as a 1991 interview with Esquire magazine, Trump had boasted: “You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of [expletive]. But she’s got to be young and beautiful.”
In a 2006 book, he wrote of women as objectified collectibles: “Beauty and elegance, whether in a woman, a building, or a work of art is not just superficial or something pretty to see.” He once sent New York Times columnist Gail Collins a copy of something she had written about him with her picture circled and “The face of a dog!” written over it.
And in 2012, he tweeted that Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington is “unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man — he made a good decision.” (Huffington’s ex-husband, former congressman Michael Huffington (R-Calif.), came out as gay after their divorce.)
Look, fact of the matter is Trump DOESN’T say it like it is, as a lot of his drooling Neanderthal supporters claim. He simply opens his mouth and says the most outrageous thing he can think of, because it keeps his name out there. He has no concept of actual policy, he doesn’t understand the intricacies of running a country. He’s run his conglomerate like the Godfather, expecting everyone to kiss his ring, and now that he’s decided to run for President, he expects the same thing. And when he doesn’t get it, he throws a hissy fit about women’s periods and other Republicans being unfair to him! “
“Honestly Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry,” he quipped during the debate. “I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be, based on the way you have treated me. But I wouldn’t do that.” Oh, you wouldn’t? That wasn’t a veiled, puerile threat?
I just saw “The Book of Mormon” at the Kennedy Center the other night. I haven’t laughed that hard in probably decades. I literally had tears running down my face and was nearly hyperventilating at the wit and satire of Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s work! Oh, yes, they were insulting to the LDS. Yes, there was definitely a lot of childish humor and sexual innuendo. Yes, there were not-so-veiled references to some in Africa still sexually abusing infants as a cure for AIDS, female genital mutilation, and the ability of Mormons to turn off negative feelings and emotions “like a light switch” and ignore larger problems. But you know what? The offensiveness served to point out hypocrisy, lies, and selfishness of many religious types, and ultimately led to a message that was overwhelmingly positive and astute – help people, and don’t be a dick. The offensiveness, in fact, said it like it is, but was able to put forth a positive message in the process.
Trump has no such talent. His offensiveness is an end unto itself. There’s nothing positive about his message. He insults people who don’t like him and who challenge him. He is incapable of taking criticism, and simply alienates anyone who doesn’t agree with his tactics. And he’s delusional enough to think that it will get him a seat at the big table, as witnessed by his conversation with Roger Stone, who, until the disastrous GOP debate of a few days ago, was Trump’s top adviser.
Stone: “Donald, stop with the Megyn Kelly shit. It’s fucking crazy. It’s killing us.”
Trump: “What do you mean? I won the debate. People loved it.”
Stone: “You didn’t win the debate.”
Trump: “Yes I did. Look at the polling. Look at Drudge.”
Stone: “The Drudge Report poll isn’t a scientific poll. You won’t give me the money to pay for a scientific poll. And you’re off-message.”
Trump: “There are other polls.”
Stone: “Those are bullshit polls, Donald. They’re not scientific polls. We need to run a professional campaign and talk about what people really care about.”
Trump: “We’re winning.”
Anyone who actually believes this delusional, narcissistic, spoiled brat belongs in the White House, please do us all a favor and drink some arsenic!
