It was hard for me to grasp as someone who has been so deeply appreciative of how his candidacy has busted up the rules in the primary season–that he could allow these words to escape his lips.
But they did: I used to say something akin to this about the current resident of the White House.
“Barack Obama could have choked a baby, in Times Square, on National TV, with his bare hands and African Americans would’ve voted for him regardless.”
Oddly I was never challenged on that assertion. And I have many African Americans who listen to me daily.
So it should come as no surprise that if what people are referring to as the current GOP standard bearer (and I’m shuddering even thinking those words much less typing them) says the same thing–he better certainly be called out on it.
For as much as it was true of President Obama, and I’m certain he knew how true it was, he never would have said something so profane and insipid.
Trump has jumped the shark, and he simply can not be the standard bearer.
I don’t care how much money he has to put into his own race, you can not fix broken character.
