Call me nearsighted (I am), but I just do not see how anyone believes a word Donald Trump says. The latest kerfuffle happened today (it’s a daily thing now), and involves the new luxury hotel he’s building in downtown DC.
The Washington Post recently stated there are illegal immigrants working on the hotel, so Anderson Cooper decided to ask Trump directly about the allegations. Trump’s answer: “I can’t guarantee that all the workers I employ have legal status in the United States, but if I were to discover any illegal immigrants…we’d get rid of them immediately.”
I guess the same illegal immigrants that Trump believes are “raping our women” are OK to have around as long as they help him put up his luxury hotels. Remember, this is the same guy who re-tweeted that “Jeb Bush has to like Mexican illegals because of his wife.” Where does this guy come off? And he doesn’t regret a word. Nope. Not one, single word of his nonsensical rants. He also called conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer a “rodeo clown.” Now, Krauthammer is not my favorite guy in town and maybe he should cut down on the hair dye, too, but he sure doesn’t deserve what Trump dished out. Neither does Jeb.
Really, folks, can anyone out there actually take their precious vote and pull the lever for this guy? If anyone’s a clown, it’s Trump, and if our country is going to get through this election cycle, he either better take some xanax, or we should. Some noise-cancelling headphones would help, too.
