Serious vs. Clown:
The contrasts were stark. She [Hillary Clinton] spoke inside a windowless think tank auditorium, from a podium and with a teleprompter. Chilled water and a conversation in upholstered chairs awaited nearby. Her address was substantive, serious and staid. “Is it perfect? Well, of course not. No agreement like this ever is,” she said of the Iran deal. “But is it a strong agreement? Yes it is.”
He [Donald Trump] spoke in the beating midday heat before a raucous, tea party-organized rally of more than 1,000 at the foot of the Capitol. He flashed a thumbs up as supporters screamed “Donald!” and waved pro-Trump signs. “Never ever, ever in my life have I seen any transaction so incompetently negotiated as our deal with Iran,” he said. “And I mean never.”
This was Clinton in her element, and Trump in his. She offered a detailed policy defense of the Iran deal. He inveighed against it with insults. She lectured. He hectored. “Diplomacy is not the pursuit of perfection. It is the balancing of risk.” Clinton explained.
“We are led by very, very stupid people,” said Trump. “Very, very stupid people. We cannot let it continue.”
Trump continued to say absolutely NOTHING and continued to impress the people who love candidates who insult, hector, taunt, and say ABSOLUTELY NOTHING:
Trump, unsurprisingly, stole the show. “We will have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with winning. Believe me,” Trump said to loud cheers. “I agree: You’ll never get bored with winning!”
Trump is the personification of a demagogue:
noun a political leader who seeks support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices rather than by using rational argument.
synonyms: rabble-rouser, agitator, political agitator, soapbox orator, firebrand, fomenter, provocateur
There it is nation. The TGOP want a thrice-married, rabble-rousing clown, who made fun of a POW, who insulted an entire country and its culture, who denigrated not just Megyn Kelly with his menstruation taunts, but Carly Fiorini's looks, to represent them.
Trump insults Carly Fiorini's looks:
"Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our nextpresident?!" the magazine quotes Trump as saying while he and his staff watch a television appearance by Fiorina. "I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"
Jeebus, Mary and Joe Pepitone! Can you imagine what this blatherskite would say about Germany's Angela Merkel? Imagine Trump making insulting remarks about female heads of state?! But more to the point: Who are the minnow-brained clotpoles who support this national embarrassment?
Wait. I know. They're the people who have feasted on hatred and bigotry ever since November of 2008, and they now have a perfect candidate to represent all they stand for.
Trump isn't anything new on the world's political stage. Just ask the Italians.
Donald Trump: The Don Rickles of politicians.
