Sporting Trump

I’m so sorry, but I can’t help it. If Trump is as smart as he claims to be, how can he write such stupid things. Here’s his Truculent Trump Tweet du Jour:

Just to jog his memory, here’s Trump receiving an award from Muhammad Ali:

Meanwhile, Trump said he wants to ban all Muslims from entering the US. He also wants to consider “closing the Internet up in some way“. Sheesh!

    Sounds more and more like Hitler banning the radios of the Polish people. I’m in favor of banning all Germans. (which is by the way the largest population in the US)

    The Teflon Don. I tried to figure out what the Donald is doing and it’s very apparent when you look at it for what it is. He sucks all the oxygen out of any room he’s in. If all the media records his every word and is searching for his every tweet they aren’t doing much for anyone else.

    Trump is a very savvy and smart dude, he might even win the Republican nomination and then like a chameleon change his colors. Like we’ve seen over and over again in the last 6 months, no one will care what he said this year. He is defying traditional wisdom of measuring every word and carefully choosing what topics and when to speak. And his base and apparently the media love it. (Do the really want to listen to Omalley, Graham and Huckabee?

    It will be a very interesting political season, but don’t underestimate the Donald, he is as intelligent as you fear he is.

    Maybe we should kick out all people who don’t understand the constitution. But then we’d have more foreigners than locals.

    “Closing the internet up in some way.” Like China, eh. That’s exactly where we want to go… Trump-flavored Totalitarianism. Love it or leave it, right?

    Thanks very much, but the days of burning crosses and bombing churches as a normal everyday occurrence are days I’d just as soon not live with again… It’s bad enough dealing with it as often as we do and it STILL being justified.

    There’s a tee-shirt that says it all: “I can’t believe I’m STILL protesting this crap.” With signs, or otherwise.

    Wait… What if Muslims began erecting American flags in mosques, like (German descent) Lutherans began to do during WWI, to show their patriotism?

    How does he profess to prove that a person is a Muslim or not? It’s not like you can tell just by looking at someone what religion they practice.
    And certainly, no jihadi would ever lie and say they were not in order to enter this country….. right?

    Find an image of Musa Cerantonio, who is a Muslim jihadist for ISIS. He lives in Australia and would look right at home in an Irish pub. How would Trump determine if he is a Muslim?

    And the Muslims who came to this country as slaves with their Religion already established. And those who were converted in Prison.

    Isn’t this the same guy who claims to have one of the “greatest memories of all time”? I think he even said it was “legendary”. The same guy who claims he saw “thousands and thousands of Muslim-Americans on TV having tailgating parties in NJ cheering when the towers came down” but just can’t remember where or produce the tapes (even though he also has the best people in the world working for him, just ask him)? Or the great memory who never forgets a critic but couldn’t remember the name of that physically disabled reporter who criticized him, and who he’s met dozens of times over the years on the record, but remembered enough to mock his disability on stage? Selective amnesia comes in handy when you really need it, and if they call you on it just change the subject or call them stupid and weak.

    No wonder the Hillary camp is literally high-fiving each other ​as long as Trump​ stays in the lead, especially after his latest comments about prohibiting all Muslim immigration, or even Muslim-Americans abroad from returning.

    Someone on Morning Joe today quipped that the only way to lower Trump’s poll numbers may be for congressional Republicans to endorse him. Irony of ironies!
