If you really want to get worried about the future of the United States, consider this salient and incredibly distressing fact: It’s very likely that we have to watch and listen to Donald Trump for another eight months. Yeah, it’s enough to make you want to unplug your TV and stay off your computer and cell phone.
Earlier today, Trump reverted to his usual jerkish self when someone asked Trump about his use of coarse language–words like “motherf*cker,” “p*ssy.” and “a**.” Did Trump consider such words to be Presidential? Specifically, how did he like a new ad which is running in which Trump is attacked for using such words. Trump responded:
‘I was a little concerned with that ad until I saw it. I think it’s better than any ad I’ve ever taken for myself.’
Then the questioner asked a simple follow-up question of the current GOP front-runner:
‘A lot of parents are trying to figure out how to explain some of the language they’re hearing on the campaign trail.’
You would have thought the man had just suggested that Trump was wearing a wig or had tiny hands which indicate he’s less than he should be below the belt line. Trump stared at the man and said:
‘Oh you’re so politically correct, oh look at you. Oh I know, you’ve never heard a little off-language.’
Bravely, the man did not relent, again repeating:
‘What would you say to parents?’
Rather than answer a legitimate question, Trump fired back with this:
‘Aren’t you just a perfect young man. You know it’s stuff like that, that people in this country are tired of.’
Is that so, Donald? Do you honestly think that parents want their children hearing and emulating the foul, putrid language you toss around and then try to defend by calling someone else politically correct? What people are quickly growing tired of, Mr. Trump, is your attempt to divide this country into warring camps so you can then attempt to gain power for your own sick and perverted purposes.
Donald Trump is a metastasizing cancer on the United States. He must and will be defeated because average Americans are much better and far more decent than he can ever hope to be.
Here’s the confrontation:
