Donald Trump

Donald Trump Is a Buffoon

Note – I usually try to avoid calling people names — it’s not too classy and often lazy… but I couldn’t resist how well the word buffoon captures Mr. Trump and his exploits.

Donald Trump is now a serious, legitimate candidate for the highest office in the land. In fact, he’s probably the best hope the Republicans have! He connects with our fit-to-be-tied base far better than any other man could ever dream!

This is what I have learned in the past few days from Fox News & Laura Ingraham… and from even some of my own non-media Conservative Brethren! I don’t spend a lot of time pondering reality tv stars and outrageous people in general, so normally I wouldn’t be punching the keys to speak of this man. But reportedly he’s going to run and doubtless he’ll continue to be slathered with attention. So I sense this may be the time for some important review on our new Conservative savior.

10 years ago Donald Trump tried to win the Presidential nomination… of the Reform Party. In 2001 he became a Democrat. In 2004, The Donald said this to Wolf Blitzer:

“Well, you’d be shocked if I said that in many cases I probably identify more as a Democrat…. And it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans. But certainly, we had some good economies under Democrats as well as Republicans. But we’ve had some pretty bad disasters under the Republicans. Including a thing called the Depression.”

Trump claimed George W Bush was the worst President in US history, hoped the “impressive” Nancy Pelosi would impeach the man who drew us into Iraq with “lies”… and just 2 days ago he said that if he didn’t win the 2012 GOP nod, he’d probably run as an independent!

On the subject of ideological allegiances… I thought it would behoove me to Google what political figures he’s donated to. Some highlights…

Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Tom Daschle, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Rahm Emanuel, Hillary Clinton, Anthony Weiner, Charles Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Charles Range

This man has never shirked from an opportunity to further himself by whatever publicity available. But make no mistake about it, this isn’t man has no core of Conservative principles. The fact that many Conservatives on the radio and FoxNews are lofting him a willing bullhorn and not asking him to explain his… incredible past speaks to their complete lack of judgment and complete focus on ratings. Donald Trump doesn’t belong in the Oval Office. The man is a buffoon.
