Ever since Donald Trump (No. 45) announced his run for office, the entire world has had an abundance of WTF moments you might only have expected to see watching the movie “Idiocracy” or perhaps reruns of old WWF episodes. Love him or hate him, DT is full of comedy. And as logical humans, these particular moments will have you shaking your head.
DT: “An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a fraud.” Let’s rewind to the bizarre beginning of our current President’s rise. There was that time he sent investigators to Hawaii in an attempt to prove Obama wasn’t born in the United States… and then proceeded to launch a 5-year attack campaign without any proof. Apparently, all he needed was his word, which was plenty for too many, as it sparked the “birther movement” that’s still around today.
DT: “Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked me last night at the Golden Globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never “mocked” a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him “groveling” when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!” Okay, set aside the whole mocking of a disabled reporter thing (which is a matter of interpretation). Really, Donald? Not only are you going to attack someone’s first amendment right because you don’t like what they have to say, but now you’re going to call Meryl Streep over-rated? She’s an academy award winning actress!
DT: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists… And some, I assume, are good people.” Now, some might possibly consider this statement to be a racist slur. But others disagree. There’s no doubt in their minds that it was DEFINTELY a racist slur. Sounds like you have some issues here, Donald. Wanna taco bout it?
DT: “It’s freezing and snowing in New York – we need global warming!” Yes, our current president, who does not believe in climate change, who thinks it was just a hoax created by the Chinese, and who is currently looking to dismantle not only the EPA but actual environmental protection legislation, actually said that. No. 45, before you go making changes, you might want to consult a few experts who can shed some light on how this whole science thing works.
DT: “The beauty of me is that I’m very rich.” Well, this I can agree with. If there’s anything that’s beautiful about Donald Trump, this would have to be it.
