Donald Trump Is Shocking, Vulgar and Right



And, my dear fellow Republicans, he's all your fault.

About 15 years ago, I said something nasty on CNN about Donald Trump’s hair. I can’t now remember the context, assuming there was one. In any case, Trump saw it and left a message the next day.
“It’s true you have better hair than I do,” Trump said matter-of-factly. “But I get more pussy than you do.” Click.

At the time, I’d never met Trump and I remember feeling amused but also surprised he’d say something like that. Now the pattern seems entirely familiar. The message had all the hallmarks of a Trump attack: shocking, vulgar and indisputably true.

Not everyone finds it funny. On my street in Northwest Washington, D.C., there’s never been anyone as unpopular as Trump. The Democrats assume he’s a bigot, pandering to the morons out there in the great dark space between Georgetown and Brentwood. The Republicans (those relatively few who live here) fully agree with that assessment, and they hate him even more. They sense Trump is a threat to them personally, to their legitimacy and their livelihoods. Idi Amin would get a warmer reception in our dog park.
I understand it of course. And, except in those moments when the self-righteous silliness of rich people overwhelms me and I feel like moving to Maine, I can see their points, some of them anyway. Trump might not be my first choice for president. I’m not even convinced he really wants the job. He’s smart enough to know it would be tough for him to govern.
But just because Trump is an imperfect candidate doesn’t mean his candidacy can’t be instructive. Trump could teach Republicans in Washington a lot if only they stopped posturing long enough to watch carefully. Here’s some of what they might learn:

    1. They're not only pissed off at the government, they're pissed off at the main stream media.

  2. I like Trump, I would vote for him. I prefer Cruze. But Trump is primarily a businessman, and when the opportunity is right, I think he will sell!

    1. Everyone knows that Trump will do what is best for Trump, but for right now, and for the near future, I believe that what's best for Trump and what's best for America, happen to be the same thing.

  3. As a Ron Paul Republican, I may just vote for Trump just to destroy the Republican Party if that is possible. I dislike some of his big government views like single payer healthcare and such, but I do like his idea of kicking the illegals out (now if we could get him to limit legal as well), making our allies pay for their defense, and maybe no more stupid wars elsewhere we don't need to be anyway.

    1. Absolutely! And I believe that Trump will focus on immigration, and the economy, the stuff where he knows he can actually make a positive impact and where he has huge public support. He will probably refer healthcare to something like a congressional committee and sign off on what they come up with, because there will be no painless solutions and other people can share the blame on whatever painful solution they come up with.
