I It's been a rough couple of days for Donald trump. The guy just has zero chill, and he gives new meaning to the term thin-skinned.
First, he disparages the mother of a fallen soldier by suggesting that she let her husband speak at the DNC because she is a Muslim woman. (Yo Donald, guess who else watches her husband speak while standing at his side without saying a word?) And then he claims that the brave soldier's father "viciously attacked" him for simply speaking his mind.
He told a flat out lie about the NFL contacting him about the timing of the debates. He also claims that he turned down a chance to meet with the Koch brother. (They said they never sent him an invite.) Now I am no fan of the Koch brothers, but I think it's fair to say that they have more credibility than Donald trump on this one.
And in between all of this he makes fun of a military hero, rips the man that rescued him from an elevator, and drops the f-bomb into an open mic.
I am not sure who is running trump's campaign these days, but now might be a good time to lock him away into a room and only bring him out when there is total control of what he has to say. Clearly the man can't help himself.
The man couldn't even feign empathy for the Khan family because his ego wouldn't let him. Mr. Khan "attacked" him and all he could think of was lashing out against the man. Losing sight, as he always does, of the bigger picture. It's not about this family who spoke out against him at the DNC; it's about all the families whose loved ones have given the ultimate sacrifice for all of us.
The fact that he himself took deferment after deferment so that he didn't have to go to war and defend this country, makes his words and actions even more reprehensible.
Anyway, all this won't really matter. Donald will get his 45% of the voters no matter what, and the news networks and political junkies will have an election close enough to keep us watching their coverage so that they can get a ratings boost.
"If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. Maybe she wasn't allowed to. You tell me."
I would try to tell you Donald, but you wouldn't hear me. Once you stop hearing the sound of your own voice, you tend to tune out everything else.
I almost feel sorry for the people running your campaign. Almost.
