Donald, where's yer hairspray?
Trump, whose business acumen extends to his having a claimed worth of $10 billion, could, it has been pointed out, have just invested his money in an unmanaged fund that tracks the S&P 500, which would have resulted in his being worth twice that amount. He might also have avoided those four corporate bankruptcies. But he is still able to flap that North And South of his, just to show that Denis Thatcher was right.
How bad is the flapping? This bad: “The last person corrupt Hillary Clinton wants to run against is Donald J. Trump. I'll end up beating her in every state. New Fox Poll-Trump!” What’s “Poll-Trump”? Does that mean you have to blow off while casting your vote? Whatever - there’s more: “Hillary Clinton does not have the STRENGTH or STAMINA to be President. We need strong and super smart for our next leader - or trouble!”
It won’t be you then, matey. But The Donald does not take kindly to perceived slights to his greatness: “I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favorite They picked person who is ruining Germany”. Favourite in his dreams. Then there is his claim that there are parts of London where the Police are too frightened to go. Here he claims to have support: “The police in London say I’m right. Major article in Daily Mail. ‘We can’t wear uniform in our own cars’”. Except that this is about not wearing uniform when off duty, so the Mail is wrong, and so is The Donald.
How about pundits who call him out? “Why does @CNN bore their audience with people like @secupp, a totally biased loser who doesn't have a clue. I hear she will soon be gone!” Ms Cupp, a conservative pundit, declared that Trump was neither conservative, nor constitutionalist. It is her right to find thus. And she is still in post at CNN. Now, if you’re a pundit he likes, well … “Thank you @oreillyfactor for your wonderful editorial as to why I should have been @TIME Magazine's Person of the Year. You should run Time!”
That would be Blowhard Bill O’Reilly, who Zelo Street regulars will recall being caught inflating his CV. But back to Trump’s pronouncements about the UK. “The United Kingdom is trying hard to disguise their massive Muslim problem. Everybody is wise to what is happening, very sad! Be honest”. His information source? “Thank you to respected columnist Katie Hopkins of Daily Mail.com for her powerful writing on the U.K.'s Muslim problems”. He really is a douchebag, isn’t he?
Trump is even useless at simple predictions: “Prior to the end of the year, I will be traveling to Israel. I am very much looking forward to it”. And the next day? “I have decided to postpone my trip to Israel and to schedule my meeting with @Netanyahu at a later date after I become President of the U.S.” So it won’t be happening, then.
