What Donald Drumpf does best

By now it should be clear that what Donald Drumpf does just about better than anyone is insult his rivals. This guy is offering a clinic on how to bully your adversaries and take down your rivals. He’s called them

  • Drumpf“Little” Marco Rubio
  • “Lyin” Ted Cruz
  • “Low energy” Jeb Bush
  • “Crooked” Hillary Clinton
  • Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren

He’s also gone after people like John McCain, of course, for “allowing” himself to be captured, and even warned the Pope that he’ll be sorry when ISIS attacks the Vatican, because that wouldn’t happen if he (Drumpf) were President.[1]

Drumpf is very good at finding a one-word epithet, repeating it over and over again, and making it stick to his opponent du jour.

So recently he’s been in a war of words with Bill Weld, the erstwhile Governor of Massachusetts, and the current Vice-Presidential nominee on the Libertarian Party ticket. Weld likened Drumpf’s proposed policies about Muslims to Kristallnacht – which is nonsense, by the way – and in typically understated fashion Drumpf responded by calling Weld an “alcoholic.”

Which might mean something if there were any truth to it.

But the truthfulness of a proposition has clearly never gotten in the way of a Drumpf pronouncement. This guys is the anti-Obama. Instead of being cool and unflappable everything gets under his skin. Instead of being restrained in any way, he lets loose on everything.

Boy, he is not going to like being President, if he should ever get there. Sorry America.

[1] Drumpf was reported to have said, “If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS – which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy – I can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president because this would not have happened. ISIS would have been eradicated, unlike what is happening now with our all-talk, no-action politicians.”

About a1skeptic

A disturbed citizen and skeptic. I should stop reading the newspaper. Or watching TV. I should turn off NPR and disconnect from the Internet. We’d all be better off.
