We can always count on Donald Trump to class up any debate.
From the “It’s all in how you read it, of course . . . ” department, we submit the following, proof that it’s vital to be VERY careful when you write a headline:
via Think Progress — Donald Trump on Fox & Friends explains why it’s clear he’s no racist:
“Well, you know, when it comes to racism and racists, I am the least racist person there is. And I think most people would me would tell you that. I am the least racist I’ve had great relationships. In fact, Randal Pinkett won, as you know, on The Apprentice a little while ago, a couple of years ago. And Randall’s been outstanding in every way. So I am the least racist person.”
Hey, it convinced us!
There’s nothing like a good analogy to get your point across in an enlightening way.
Of course, there are analogies and there are analogies . . . which is to say that sometimes they don’t work out quite right.
Viz. the following, in which Donald Trump tells the New York Times why he’s against gay marriage. (Apparently, it’s because it’s like using longer putters. Yeah, we don’t get it either.)
“It’s like in golf. A lot of people — I don’t want this to sound trivial — but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive. It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can’t sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”
Let us listen in on a modern-day Benjamin Disraeli or Winston Churchill. Yes, we speak (of course) of Donald Trump.
Herewith some of his comments in a speech he gave last night in Las Vegas.
First, he eloquently comments on the situation in Iraq:
“We build a school, we build a road, they blow up the school, we build another school, we build another road they blow them up, we build again, in the meantime we can’t get a fucking school in Brooklyn.”
Here, he touches on the problem of high oil prices:
“We have nobody in Washington that sits back and said, you’re not going to raise that fucking price.”
And here, he directly addresses China:
“Listen, you motherfuckers, we’re going to tax you 25 percent.”
Sheer fucking poetry, no?
So Donald Trump may be planning a run for the presidency . . . Why, we began thinking, would he make a good president? (Aside from the highly telegenic hair, that is.)
Here, in his own words, is proof positive that Trump is clearly presidential material:
- He‛s great with numbers!
“I’ll tell you, it’s Big Business. If there is one word to describe Atlantic City, it’s Big Business. Or two words – Big Business.”
- He‛s diplomatic!
“She really has become a monster….I mean monster in the most positive way.” (speaking about his then-pregnant wife Melania on the Howard Stern Show)
- He‛s able to grasp of highly complicated subjects!
“It’s a lot better to side with a winner than a loser.”
- He‛s got his priorities straight!
“You know, it really doesn’t matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”
- He ‛s intellectual!
“Deals work best when each side gets something it wants from the other.”
- He thinks deeply about the important things in life!
“The worst thing a man can do is go bald. Never let yourself go bald.”
- He‛s very eloquent!
“You know, the one thing I sorta liked was what they were saying about Iran. I believe you have to go in and strike Iran — not with soldiers. You know, it’s not a world of soldiers anymore. It’s a world of air. It’s a world of different kinds of, you know, we’ve changed.”
(on a speech by President George W. Bush)
- He‛s painfully honest!
“Bankruptcy? I don’t think it’s a failure. It’s a success.”
(when Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts filed for bankruptcy protection after accruing $1.8 billion in debt)
- He‛s selfless and cares about others!
“I’m not a schmuck. Even if the world goes to hell in a handbasket, I won’t lose a penny.”
- And, like we said before, he‛s diplomatic!
“Do you mind if I sit back a little? Because your breath is very bad.”
