Oh Donald

Today Univision, the U.S. based Spanish television network announced it will not air the Miss Universe Pageant. Do tell? Apparently Spanish Americans want nothing to do with Donald Trump. Trump’s very public association with the pageant came to a grinding halt at Univision when Trump blethered this remark on immigrants –

“We have drug dealers coming across, we have rapists, we have killers, we have murderers, I mean it’s common sense. Do you think they’re going to send us their best people, their finest people?”

Univision released this official statement –

Today, the entertainment division of Univision Communications Inc. announced that it is ending the Company’s business relationship with the Miss Universe Organization, which is part-owned by Donald J. Trump, based on his recent, insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants.

At Univision, we see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had and will continue to have in building the future of our country. We will not be airing the Miss USA pageant on July 12th or working on any other projects tied to the Trump Organization.

Ponder Trump’s statement on Putin –

Putin has no respect for our president whatsoever. He’s got a tremendous popularity in Russia, they love what he’s doing, they love what he represents,” Trump said. “I was over in Moscow two years ago and I will tell you – you can get along with those people and get along with them well. You can make deals with those people. Obama can’t.”

“I would be willing to bet I would have a great relationship with Putin,” he added. “It’s about leadership.”

Did this nincompoop miss the memo regarding Putin’s shameful involvement in economic and political shenanigans?

This Trumpism speaks for itself –

Trump laid out his unique plan to defeat ISIS. “I say that you can defeat ISIS by taking their wealth,” he said. “Take back the oil. Once you go over and take back that oil they have nothing. You bomb the hell out of them and then you encircle it, and then you go in. And you let Mobil go in, and you let our great oil companies go in. Once you take that oil they have nothing left.”

  1. If only such dumb statements would remove him from history’s sidenotes scribbled in the margin by a bored historian. I fear that there are millions of otherwise fine Americans who will heartily agree with this guy. God bless America and have mercy on the rest of us.

  2. “Take back the oil. Once you go over and take back that oil they have nothing. You bomb the hell out of them and then you encircle it, and then you go in. And you let Mobil go in, and you let our great oil companies go in.

    Fascinating.

    This is what is like to live in an ahistorical bubble of rhetoric. This tactic – imperial intervention in the Middle East – has cost the US billions – not to mention the unlawful killing of hundreds of thousands in Iraq and the rest of the Middle East.

    Aaaaaand he thinks that more of the same is going to be gangbusters…:/

    Awesome.
