He is the perfect example of a spoilt, rich adolescent, somehow fitted into the body of a grown man who has himself not yet discovered his adult parts and how best to use them.
At the launch of his reality show campaign towards the US Presidency, Donald Trump described Mexicans coming into the US as murderers and rapists. At that very moment and at all junctures since, he was sucked into a black hole and defied description which fitted a Presidential run.
Then last week, the black hole did something quite remarkable. Known for its immense gravitational pull, from which not even light can escape, the black hole had had enough of the despicable person and eventually spat out Donald Trump and gave him up to a most confused and divided GOP.
As the man standing alone, it is about 90% certain that Trump will be the GOP standard bearer for the presidency even if riots break out at the GOP convention in July.
At that stage it will dawn on the orange-faced candidate that the reality show is over as he heads to November to face off with Hilary Clinton and the worst nightmare of his stuck-in-the-mud adolescent life.
He will piss his pants, wish he could escape over a wall into Mexico and he most certainly will bawl blood.
It has become conventional wisdom for pundits — who all were blindsided by Trump’s rise in the primaries while spouting racism, misogyny, fascism and stunning ignorance on basic policy matters – to declare that Trump has just as good a chance at taking the White House.
I disagree simply because history tells us that the electorate which shows up post primaries when the run to the US presidency in on in earnest tends to be much more to the centre on many matters while Trump is constantly far extreme just as long as he can figure out what it is his audience wants him to be obnoxious at.
Second, Trump is constantly reminding his dull-brained followers how smart he is when such a need is a sure sign of his lack of any intellectual prowess. With a more sophisticated and discriminating electorate he will have to step up his game as Clinton comes at him in the debates.
Listen to the Wharton dimwit attempting to clarify his previous statements on abortion immediately after he had been all but declared as the presumptive GOP candidate for president.
“He was asking me a theoretical, or just a question in theory, and I talked about it only from that standpoint. Of course not. And that was done, he said, you know, I guess it was theoretically, but he was asking me a rhetorical question, and I gave an answer. And by the way, people thought from an academic standpoint, and asked rhetorically, people said that the answer was an unbelievable academic answer. But of course not, and I said that afterwards. Everybody understands that.”
WTF!!! Everybody understands that? Who is everybody? Sarah Palin?
Having alienated even the very people in the Republican Party who created the policy platform which gave Trump his rise to capture the party, the orange-faced one is now the headliner of the ‘stupid party’ that Bobby Jindal warned the GOP not to be in 2012.
Hispanics, African Americans, women, the college educated and anyone who is not a white male and headed to Hicktown have also been alienated.
With such a formidable cohort of voters turned off by his hateful speech I cannot see him even attempting to come good in states like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, must wins if the GOP wants the White House.
The position taken by some that he holds just as good of a chance of taking the White House as he had in becoming the GOP standard bearer does not hold water when the realities of those demographic metrics are considered.
Outside of a terrorist attack on US soil between now and November or Hilary Clinton being indicted in her email problems, the Donald will be going down and when he hits the carpet the world will witness Trump the crybaby and the kid who soiled his pants.
He will hopefully have another bestseller scripted for him and better still, get sucked into another black hole. If we are lucky, next time it will be for keeps.
