The televised scene from a Trump NH rally confirmed for many of us that the brash guy called "The Donald" by many, ought to really go by the tamer sobriquet, "The Donna". Because while a real male figure would have put a loser moron in his place for asking a dumbass, insolent, incendiary question "the Donna" just let it roll right by, and remarked "we're gonna get to the bottom of it!". The bottom of what? What a bottomless, brainless, gutless poppet you really are?
The incident was re-related by Chris Matthews last night on Bill Maher's Real Time, noting MSNBC's cameras were rolling at the time, and the camera crew felt it was time for a break, but Matthews said 'hold on'. Good thing he did. Because Trump then called on some loser with a loser look and a loser's dopey ass voice, pseudo-arrogant racist who blurted:
"“We have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims. We know our current president is one, you know he’s not even an American.”
Thereby echoing the infamous Nazi discussion about how to solve the “Jewish question.”
Trump acting the whole weasel wimp let the comment go right by.
That was the point at which the real would-be leader puts the slimy, brainless little asshole in his place, and reams him out good - like John McCain did with another loser moron who - at a rally in the 2008 campaign - referred to Obama as "an Arab". McCain immediately corrected the feeble-minded twit, telling her firmly as he looked into her piggy eyes, "No!" Then as she tried to babble some more, informed her "He's a good and decent man" and "I just have differences with Mr. Obama over policy."
Trump could have done the same and shown he could at least be considered remotely as potential leader material, but he punted, realizing that challenging the goober required more cojones than he actually possessed. He'd have risked being seen as "soft" and less the bully than he projects, and worse, might have lost votes from the Islamophobic base that the racist turkey hails from.
In making no rebuttal he thereby confirmed conservative columnist Cal Thomas' take of being a demagogue, e.g.:
"Trump is a chameleon, having held contradictory positions on various issues over the years as its suits him. He fits the dictionary.com definition of a demagogue: 'a person, especially an orator or political leader, who gains power and popularity by arousing the emotions, passions sand prejudices of the people'."
For those who might not recall history, that was the M.O. of Adolf Hitler too. (A guy who was also obsessed about being effeminate - hence over compensated by bullying bombast and aggressive posturing).
In the wake of what has to be the biggest gaffe yet -one of blatant omission - Trump's bona fides are again being called into question and from both sides of the aisle. Even Lindsey Graham said that Trump ought to have immediately corrected the fool instead of letting him blabber on about Obama.
Chris Christie, never shy about criticizing Obama - said the same thing - acknowledging on the “Today” show that he would have corrected the uneducated bozo:
“I’d say that the president’s a Christian and he was born in this country. Those two things are self-evident,”
Most astute observers agree this latest fuckup may be the one that finally puts the stake into the Donna's heart. But we have to see, recalling that Trumpies - like rock groupies - will likely just rally around the Donna even more -seeing him as being attacked by the terrible media, "libruls" and fake conservatives.
Reality testing anyone? The Bushies demolished the last of that during their last run.
