McCain Unnerves Trump

Neither Trump nor McCain have apparently read chapter two of “How To Win Friends and Influence People”.  Hurling insults is always cause for grief.  Having followed American politics for some time, I can espouse with confidence that John McCain loves hearing himself speak almost as much as Trump.  In McCain’s zeal to cast condemnation on Trump over Trump’s bizarre presentation of the illegal immigration issue, he himself has emblazoned a target on his chest as do all soldiers when they step up to the front line of battle.  Had McCain less frequently made reference to his military service while addressing the senate on matters of national security, and less frequently made appearances on the Sunday morning talk show circuit, perhaps Trump’s sarcasm would have been muted.  I underscore, “perhaps” because the handlers are obviously of the opinion that allowing him to free wheel at the mic have been serving polls well to date.

Rick Perry has tweeted that, Trump in this latest suggestion that a captured McCain is not a war hero amount to Trump being unfit as a candidate for the presidency.  You can guarantee that the Trump campaign will be firing back that Perry is unfit given his big brain freeze during debating for the candidacy during the last presidential run at which time Perry excused himself given a prescription medicine regime.

I have never been so entertained while watching folks debase themselves of intelligence while running for the highest office in the land.  Apparently much of Trump’s appeal has arisen due to use of cut off sentences, interjection, and hyperbole as particularly illustrated by his favourite word “disaster”.

Does Trump have the gall for allocating resources for researching McCain’s military service as means of resurrecting apparent breaches in his own credibility?  Will the term “swiftboating” return as a term bandied by pundits during this latest trek for top spot – this time among Republicans?

Trump Hosts Families Impacted By Illegal Immigrants

It’s a Friday night in July in Beverly Hills and while many are packing up for the cottage, Donald Trump stands alongside devastated families mournful from the loss of loved ones at the hand of illegal immigrants.  One by one the stories are shared at the microphone and Donald stands to the side listening attentively.  Apparently, justice officials had not been listening as effectively as Trump had tonight when those heart crushed souls poured their stories out to a U.S justice system which has seemingly been ill equipped to effectively sanction perpetrators of crime whom are void of an I.D number.

You can say what you want about Donald Trump’s political incorrectness, but his stinging clarity around substantive matters deserves credit.  It’s high time that the political elite assuaged by liberal media come to learn distinctively about what irks the populous when the punditry is turned off.  Mr. Trump is skilfully garnering tremendous free campaign fodder as his adversaries cower in their public opinion of his message.  He arguably reasoned out the semantics of his words chosen during his campaign launch speech and with 7,000 apparent folks stationed at the ready to head downtown Phoenix on the weekend to hear something of his plan to stem the flow of illegal immigrants across the border, the presidential contender obviously has many Latino and African American folks believing that he’s not deserving of the racist label eagerly sought by journalists.

I was nearly drawn to tears listening to these stories tonight.  The occasion of this multi-billionaire standing arm in arm with middle Americans baring their souls to a press corps was simply surreal.  Things are getting very interesting in the U.S. political arena.
