What To Do With Trump

U.S. Republicans have a problem – what to do with Donald Trump.  Do they let him in the clubhouse or cross fingers hoping he’ll go away? By now the RNC must know he isn’t going away, not only is Trump basking in early poll glory, he has Republicans by the balls.

Not that early polls amount to anything, look at Michele Bachmann’s 2012 presidential dream imploding with a sixth place showing in the Iowa caucuses. Bachmann dropped out – first place polls throughout 2011 meant nothing when push came to shove. Problem is, Trump is no Bachmann.

Trump isn’t a politician, has no time for political propriety or inclination to play by old boy rules. A man utterly void of filters, eclipsed by dismissive refusal to apologize, steadfast assertions and image of self importance greater than that of a Roman emperor. Hail Trump, or risk his wrath.

Much as I dislike Republican politics, I almost feel sorry for them. Trump’s response in a recent interview with The Hill when asked about possibly running as an Independent –

“I’ll have to see how I’m being treated by the Republicans,” Trump was quoted as saying. “Absolutely, if they’re not fair, that would be a factor.”

Trump said the RNC was “always supportive” when he donated to the conservative party, the newspaper reported.

But now, “the RNC has not been supportive,” he said in the interview on Wednesday. “The RNC has been, I think, very foolish.”

The RNC had issued a statement saying remarks by Trump, who on Saturday disputed the heroism of McCain, who was held prisoner for five years during the Vietnam War, had “no place in our party or our country.”

Not so fast Republicans, you be nice to Mr. Trump or he’ll run off simply because he can. A rogue Trump will split your votes, guaranteeing a win for Clinton. I’m placing my bet on Clinton for the win despite your Trump shenanigans, but you have other plans. So what to do with Donald Trump?



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.”


Oh Donald, please stop –
