Donald the Vulgar

A float in a parade in Germany during Carnivale mocking Trump

When you can't dazzle your adoring supporters with any depth of knowledge of the issues, you can do what Donald Trump does so well:  He tells everyone how rich and great he is, or he uses the language of a sexually frustrated teenage boy to attack his opponents. 

When you can't come up with a reason for breaking international and U.S. law by bringing back waterboarding, you can attack your opponent by calling him a pussy. 

Classy, innit? 

If you're 12 years old and trying to impress a roomful of 10 year olds who'll howl approval at every vulgarity you can throw at them, you descend into crudeness and coarseness to keep them stomping their little hooves and hooting like hyenas at you and your perversity. IOW, you're just Donald the Creep being even creepier and more disgusting than you've ever been by dragging yourself and your supporters through slime and sewage.

And they eat it up and love him for it.

A Trump supporter called Cruz a "pussy" for not supporting waterboarding, and Trump repeated the word from the podium. 

Jenna Johnson reported from the front runner's rally in Manchester that the crowd of thousands roared with approval.

Trump Shocks in Final New Hampshire Rally

MANCHESTER, N.H. — There are some things you never think you'll hear a presidential candidate say — even Donald Trump.

 But, on Monday night, Trump became the first presidential candidate in recent memory to use an epithet for female anatomy to describe a Republican rival on stage at a rally — and he later said it was a "great moment."

 Speaking to about 5,000 people at Manchester's Verizon Center on the eve of the New Hampshire primary, Trump railed against opponents who speak out against his tone. Specifically on waterboarding, Trump contrasted his recent statements on bringing back waterboarding to those of Sen. Ted Cruz.

 "You know he's concerned about the answer because well, some people," Trump said, pointing to a woman in the crowd, "she just said a terrible thing. You know what she said? Shout it out 'cause I don't wanna." Then he said it anyway: "She said, 'He's a p---y.'"

"Donald Trump is a menace to American conservatism who would take the work of generations and trample it underfoot in behalf of a populism as heedless and crude as the Donald himself." --The National Review

Besides the Mexicans are rapists comment, I thought his most vulgar comment is when he said Megan Kelly must have been bleeding from somewhere on her body. Of course every time he says something vulgar, his poll numbers go up. Go figure.

Vulgar people are attracted to other vulgar people.

Matt Taibbi may have had the most succinct but accurate description of the Republican primary.
He called it a gong show.

Look for one or two to leave the stage tonight.

I'm waiting for Mr Trump to start farting and tap dancing.

Mr. Rosewater,

I remembered the tap dancing farter as a Tralfamadorian.
