Not that anything Trump has done of late, or in the last year, for that matter, comes as any surprise to me. I have known for years that he was unstable, foolish, boorish, a true low-life, and completely untrustworthy. I’ve said so and written so, and nobody has ever provided a serious or substantive rebuttal. However, the Republican party’s cowardly and addled leaders actually allowed this narcissistic creep to represent their party, laughably known as the Grand Old Party and now behaving as the Pathetically Stupid Party, and Americans who supposedly did not require the assistance of the Americans With Disability Act–you know, for brain damage—actually voted for him in primaries, attend his rallies and tell pollsters that he’s the berries. This was inexplicable at the time, but eventually enough is enough, even for the gullible and the dim. It better be.
Ever since the debate, Trump has been madly engaged in trashing a woman of no significance whatsoever, continuing a beef he had with her years ago when she was a Miss Universe and gained too much weight for his liking. I had completely forgotten about the incident when Clinton mentioned it in the debate to goad Trump, and it would have had no impact whatsoever if The Donald had the sense God gave a sea sponge, the self-control of a well-raised 12-year-old, or the manners of your more refined Jerry Springer guest. (I’m not requiring of him the kind of character and conduct one would reasonably expect of a President: that would be asking too much.)
Instead, Trump has gone on his most bizarre and disqualifying Twitter rampage yet, which is saying something.
Between 3:20 and 5:30 a.m. this morning, he issued a series of tweets attacking the ex-beauty queen and Hillary Clinton. Hillary, he wrote “was duped and used by my worst Miss U. Hillary floated her as an “angel” without checking her past, which is terrible!” Next, he asserted that Hillary helped the woman—I am not using her name because I could not care less about her, and neither should Trump— become a United States citizen so that the Democratic nominee could mention her during the debate to attack him.
Best of all, he accused the woman of making a sex tape. Such a classy guy.
Why is a Presidential candidate engaging in a gutter squabble with a completely irrelevant woman whom nobody cares about nor should? Why is he inflicting wounds on his campaign with such undignified and self-destructive conduct over a trivial grudge, when he is supposed to have more important objectives, like, say, winning the Presidency, meeting the expectations of his supporters, and providing a viable alternative to the most corrupt and untrustworthy major party candidate imaginable, since no one sane could have imagined him?
There’s only one reason why, and it is as obvious as the blazing light of a super-nova, a T-Rex in the bathroom or a nuclear explosion. Donald Trump is a complete, irredeemable, irresponsible, immature, reckless idiot, and a national embarrassment. Any public figure who does not publicly reject him after this latest display deserves ignominy and and public contempt forever. His staff should resign, his donors should issue regrets, and those who endorsed him should beg for forgiveness. If he loses the election in a landslide that sweeps the Republican Party into the ash bin of history with the Whigs and the Dixiecrats, good. They earned it. I’ll be taking names: Rudy Giuliani? Chris Christie? Paul Ryan? Newt Gingrich? Ted Cruz? Sean Hannity? (Well, we all knew Sean was an idiot, so this is just frosting on the cake…) Hide your heads under sacks, all of you. I’m revolted to be of the same nationality, species, and phylum with any of you.
As for you voters who would knowingly place a man with such wretched judgment and lack of self control in a position to affect their lives and mine, you have proven that those hated “elites” who incurred your wrath by ignoring you all these years had a terrific reason: you-are-morons. You can’t be trusted to put shoes on the right feet, much less govern yourselves. Jefferson, Paine, Madison, Franklin and Adams weren’t counting on the civic literacy of the American public slipping below that of a Brittany Spaniel in less than 250 years. If they had, they would have just paid the damn tea tax and be done with it.
It’s time to be open, honest, transparent and throw down the gauntlet. Let all those with IQs under 100 vote for Trump, and anyone whose intellect edges into positive territory vote against him. If, thanks to genetic selection, birth control, perverse incentives, a miserable education system and intellect-rotting popular culture the really, really stupid people have the upper hand, at least we’ll know, and stop pretending otherwise.
Don’t worry: just a few well-aimed hammer swings to the forehead, and you’ll fit right in.
