Last week, the Quinnipiac poll showed Donald Trump ahead of the GOP pack by 7 points. He polled at 20%, with his next closest rival, Scott Walker, at 13%.
This week, CBS’ poll put Trump in the lead with 24%, followed by Jeb Bush at 13%.
When Trump calls Mexican criminals and rapists, conservatives are eating it up, now that their bigotry toward blacks became un-PC since the Charleston massacre and weekly unjustifiable shootings by white police officers.
And then the Supreme Court took away another target of their hatred by legalizing same-sex marriage across the board. What to do, what to do?
Thank God for Trump. He came along and told them who it’s OK to hate now.
Trump, who has never held office, insults and belittles his fellow contenders, many duly elected senators and governors. Trump calls them weak and stupid, and the Republicans who love it ELECTED these politicians Trump now disses.
There’s no such thing as hypocrisy in the GOP playbook.
In the CBS poll, 79% of Republican voters think Trump isn’t afraid to speak his mind, the highest by far of any candidate.
True, Donald Trump will fill anyone’s ears with the mental diarrhea that continually dribbles from his pie hole. He and Rush Limp Paw have that in common.
If there’s one good thing to say about Trump, it’s that he can self-finance his campaign, if he does it. He won’t owe hand jobs to any fat cats, as his fan-boy Ted Cruz would after his PAC raked in $15 million from just two brothers in Texas, Farris and Dan Wilks.
Most of the others, on both sides, are just as bad. Campaigning has become so outrageously expensive, it’s next to impossible NOT to sell your soul.
The most unfortunate thing about Donald Trump is not his arrogance and egotism. It’s that his obnoxious persona probably masks a very little man. He bullies and retaliates against anyone who dares to criticize him to divert attention from what a pathetic, empty shell he really is.
He claims he’d make Mexico pay to construct our wall along the border. He’ll have Mexicans loving him for creating jobs. He knows how to wipe ISIS out of existence. He can bring China, Putin, and the rest of the world to heel.
All these big promises from a man who can’t face hair loss, even though he’s got plenty of company with men his age and there’s absolutely no shame in it.
Trump would rather have comedians ritually savage him every day of his life than let the world see the real him.
Bernie Sanders doesn’t give a rat’s ass about age or baldness, and he draws crowds that could eat Trump’s audiences for breakfast.
Denial is the real tragedy of Donald Trump. If he presented himself with authentic honesty, balding, straight-talking, and financially self-sustaining, he wouldn’t need to play the bully and might have a shot at being the next president.
But as long as he keeps that matted hairball glued to the top of his head, he’s a buffoon whose poll numbers must only reflect his pure entertainment value because, surely, even Republicans can’t be that dumb.
