Donald Trump - "I will know the difference between Hamas and Hezbollah 'when it's appropriate'"

Had to share this because it's just something else. He's wearing his ignorance as some kind of badge of honour.

I especially love the Guardian's little dig...

“The names you just mentioned, they probably won’t even be there in six months or a year,” he added.

Hassan Nasrallah has headed Hezbollah since 1992.

I mean who the fuck listens to that and thinks "That guy, that's the guy for me." Such an appalling twat.

I'm looking forward to the day he loses just so I will stop seeing Donald fucking Trump everywhere.

sorry

post #4 of 39

I forgive you.

 

It's just that this all feels like a repeat of Sarah Palin.  Conservative candidate espousing idiotic and repulsive shit.  Gaining traction with other repulsive conservative idiots.  And undoubtedly, completely failing to make any political headway whatsoever.

I love Donald Trump for the same reason I loved Sarah Palin. Politics can be so dull at times, it's nice to have some sure-fire comedy added to the mix. Kind of reminds me of that Black Mirror episode where a cartoon character joins an election race.

Black Mirror is exactly what it's like. I'm fascinated to see this bizarre experiment play out. As his arrogance grows, surely his meltdown is nigh. Or this like a Black Mirror episode that will end with him in power and everyone wondering what the fuck happened?

Now there is this.

This guy is the fucking frontrunner.

And he still thinks he's going to win the Hispanic vote.

I still feel this is not a real campaign, and therefore can't get worked up over it.
post #10 of 39

I laugh, but hesitantly. There's a part of me that goes, 'oh god, some of these people aren't laughing at, they're laughing with.' And that is a scary proposition.

It's not fun anymore. He should be a laughing stock but he isn't. His goons are punching protesters. He's refusing to answer simple questions and he's having reporters ejected from conferences. And they say Obama is a tyrant. Can you imagine the hypothetical scenario where he is successful. It's terrifying.

Seriously though, who the fuck are these people supporting him?

Yeah, I read that he's leading the polls, but he has 29 percent of the support from the members of the Republican base who still respond to landline phone polls. Once you take reality into account, he's slightly more popular than Roger Goodell. I'm not ready to clutch my pearls just yet.

Another reason I hate Sara Palin.  When asked a question you don't know the answer to or know your lack of knowledge will reveal the true idiot you are, answering with "That's a gotcha question."  I don't even know if she's the one who coined the term, but she is certainly the first I know of who started answering questions back with a comment like that.

While he has the most support, he's also the most hated candidate. Once the other Republicans start dropping out and the RNC backs one candidate he'll be gone and the reason why the Republicans will lose to any candidate, even Clinton.

I'm bummed that he signed that loyalty pledge. Maybe he did it with his fingers crossed behind his back or something. Hopefully. I just want this monster the hateful right wing has spawned to destroy its creator.

HBO was showing 'Game Change' yesterday and I ended up watching a little bit of it again....

 

...deja fucking vu.

 

This Trump performance art that we are being subjected to seems like it could be the sequel to this movie.

There aren't any binding legal provisions to the pledge, so he could simply say that they forced him into it or something and run anyway. The pledge does put the Republican Party in the rather hilarious position of having to support him if he actually wins the primary season, though.

Harrison Ford as Donald Trump. What do you think?

With the pledge, Trump and the Republican party have basically Kobayashi Maru'd each other.

Thr Economist's Trump cover this week is pretty funny. The article is sobering though.

This is a pretty great remix...

The scary thing with Trump is that I catch myself agree with him! In that Hewitt interview he deflected by talking about how the Kurds have been hung out to dry.

I agree with that!

Trump says he wants Universal healthcare.

I agree with that!

Then I remember this is Donald Trump! A tacky slumlord with mob ties! He probably doesn't know when he's being sincere or not!
post #23 of 39

Not to mention, he wants to tax the rich.   I agree with that!   I'm no longer sure Trump is going to flame out but signing that pledge already feels like the first blow to his brand.   My theory is that what will happen to Trump is the same thing that happened during the last cycle with Gingrich.   People will simply be bored with him.

My entire family. My mother was one of five siblings, my father was one of five siblings, I have more cousins and in-laws than I can keep track of without some kind of spreadsheet, and they're all rooting for Trump. He says what they're all thinking.
post #25 of 39
I really don't get the "he says what they're all thinking" thing. He's not espousing any particularly consistent mindset, other than angry and belligerent asshole. Fortunately for him that describes a lot of people in Anerica. He's winning because people are pissed and he's the loudest. The "I will know what I need to know when I need to know it." is the perfect statement for his run at President. He's the vaporware candidate. All boast, no substance. No wonder everyone's dumb relatives love him. Mine too.

That's just it. We're talking about a bloc of voters who don't care about the details of politics. They just want a swaggering bully who they can claim as their swaggering bully. They want the part of Reagan that fired the air traffic controllers' union workers for striking, and who took our Vietnam Derangement Syndrome out on Grenada in '83. They don't care if Trump knows the difference between the Turks and the Kurds, because they don't care what the difference is. They just want to feel that America, and by proxy they, are kicking ass again. Trump's campaign is massaging that gland in their brains with both hands. It's a cliche by this point that difficult financial times provide fertile soil for macho populist movements; we're getting to watch it happen in real time here.
post #27 of 39
So I guess the proper way to say it would be "He says what they're all BLERGDERPAMERICAing!"
post #28 of 39
And that kind of campaign falls by the wayside, always. If this is what it looks like a year from now, then I might start to get worried. But no way, I'd bet any amount of money against that. H Ross Perot, at best.
post #29 of 39

I hate politics but can't avoid seeing coverage of this all unfolding  on various stations.

Donald Trump scares the crap out of me. Like Mr.Saxon said-it's like some Charlie Brooker story.

 

I met Trump once. Was managing a The Sharper Image store and we were pushing Trump Steaks.

..always thot he looked so evil in that picture.

He made a quick appearance in store, and as I walked him out he turned and shook my hand, thanked me and said 'sell my meat'

and when our hands separated a folded up $50. bill was there.

Still. I'm frightened that he might reach the post he's trying for.

But

if he does

we may finally find out what exactly is that on top of his head!?

Doesn't he routinely talk about how much he wants to date her?

I know I just posted this, but I was just seeing it on my computer and my mind flashed like in 'The Dead Zone' to him pointing to the missile launch briefcase, open and exposing a big red button.

I can't help but think Trump Steaks are really Bush Meat.
