Dammit! I do wish there was more to write about than Trump…..unfortunately he is the only candidate that is making news these days……
I have been following the doings with the 2016 election and of course it would be difficult to follow it without having to be exposed to the ramblings of Donald Trump.
First, I see the FOX’s Megyn Kelly has returned to work and Trump had nothing good to say about her….the Roger Ailes speaks up and says that Trump owes her an apology…..and back and forth…..to me this is all just a ratings game….the more crap they throw the more some will tune in to follow the continuing saga….this I understand. The popularity of Trump eludes me.
Back to the jest of this post…..
I see so many people that take what this person says as the gospel or something equally as sacred……and I have not paid mush attention to all that he has to say……but with all the excitement over him as a candidate I decided to watch one of his outings in Iowa to see if I could get an idea of his popularity.
I listened and all I heard was a person rambling on and on….kinda made me think of the rambling rant of Qaddafi at the UN about 10 years ago (please I am not equating Bush with the Middle East Mad Man just talking about a speech that made little sense)…..I learned the he loves Mexicans and the Chinese people and then belittles them……he is really smart……he knows people……all in all self-promotion. I realize that all politicians are egotistical wankers but Mr. Trump is taking that egotism to new heights….
He bitches about many things, like most Americans, but he offers nothing in the process that resembles a solution to anything. Eventually, once the election primaries begin for real, he will have to offer more as a solution then he is really smart, really rich and knows people.
Trump and Sanders are tapping into a populist trend among Americans……most of us are fed up with the idle promises of those we elect and once in Washington they play games and waste time…..Sanders unlike Trump at least talks about issues and even seem to have a few solutions up his sleeve. I think if Trump wants to be as successful as he seems to think he is…..he will have to offer solutions other than build a really big wall and the people he knows……
For now he, Trump, is telling the conservative voter everything they want to hear……but how long will his ramblings be attractive to these people? Eventually, I think, they will want to hear how he will achieve all the things he bitches about…….
Or is it possible that I may have missed something?
What the Hell is his problem with Oreos?
