The Odious Donald Trump

He's not fit to shine John McCain's shoes with his important hair

I’ve been traveling all day, and was late to hear about the outrageous remark that boob Donald Trump made about John McCain. From the LA Times:

“He’s not a war hero,” Trump said at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, in response to a question about McCain, who has sharply criticized Trump’s withering comments on immigrants.

“He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, OK? I hate to tell you. He’s a war hero because he was captured, OK? And I believe — perhaps he’s a war hero. But right now, he’s said some very bad things about a lot of people,” Trump said.

I do not like John McCain’s foreign policy. I don’t like John McCain’s temperament. I don’t like a lot of things about John McCain’s politics. But that man suffered terribly in the service of his country, and deserves respect and gratitude for that. Donald Trump is a rich-kid punk who deserves to have a Vietnam veteran pop him in his big mouth.

This tweet says it all:

The one good thing about this is it probably means the end of the Trump presidential-candidacy-as-clown-car-derby. One hopes so.

UPDATE: Trump on Christianity. Says he has his “cracker” and his “wine,” and “feels cleansed.” Says he has never asked God to forgive him. Hoo boy.
