|Kiss that presidential campaign "goodbye" Donald|
Well folks, I've been enjoying the Traveling Donald Trump show as have many others. But last night, at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire, during a town hall meeting Donald Trump showed his true character. The first questioner "asked" Mr. Trump:
Trump should have immediately corrected the questioner that Barrack Obama IS NOT A MUSLIM (not that there is anything the matter with that, Muslims are also citizens of these United States), but that he also should have corrected the questioner that Barrack Obama IS A CITIZEN of the United States. Donald Trump should have done what former Republican presidential candidate John McCain did seven years ago when confronted with a similar situation when a woman in his audience called Barrack Obama "an Arab".
This folks is the difference between character. While I'm no fan of John McCain (war hawk), with this exchange John McCain showed that he has character. On the other hand, last night's failure by Donald Trump to immediately correct that audience member on his disrespectful and incorrect question about Barrack Obama, showed that he has ZERO character and is unqualified to be president.
In past posts I have admitted that I've been enjoying Donald Trump shaking up the Usual Suspects (Washington based news media and political establishment), those days of enjoyment have ended for me. I have NO respect for Donald Trump land I feel sorry for his supporters who believe this fallacy that Barrack Obama is not a U.S. citizen and is a Muslim (not that there is anything the matter with that).
I don't know who is going to be the next president of the United States but as of last night I am certain it will not be Donald Trump. No one who condones such hates and divisiveness in this country can ever be elected president.
And I'll give you another example, as much as I despised George W. Bush and his presidency, I'll give him this. Bush never condoned anti-Muslim rhetoric.
Moving on folks, I'm moving on. Mark this day, Donald Trump is on his way out as a serious presidential candidate.
Post Script: Donald Trump's pitiful response to his lack of action correcting the bigot at his town hall meeting:
The answer Donald Trump is when you up on a stage and someone asks you a bigoted question it is your responsibility to correct the bigot. And here I thought Donald Trump was smart. Apparently he is not.
