Donald Trump Is Shocking, Vulgar and Right

About 15 years ago, I said something nasty on CNN about Donald Trump’s hair. I can’t now remember the context, assuming there was one. In any case, Trump saw it and left a message the next day.

“It’s true you have better hair than I do,” Trump said matter-of-factly. “But I get more pussy than you do.” Click.

    “Trump is in part a reaction to the intellectual corruption of the Republican Party. That ought to be obvious to his critics, yet somehow it isn’t.”

    As an American, I am not merely electing a President, but also an arsonist that will set fire to the drapes of the Republican Party.

    • I get that, even way up here. The same needs to happen in Canada.

      We have to find a way to curb the professional political class and bureaucracy. Term limits and union smashing seem the most effective.

        I think once that ball gets rolling with Trump’s election, it will give people in many western countries the PERMISSION to overthrow the old, wretched order.
        It will be as if a dam has broken!

        • It’s why my hope is that Trudeau is an aberration.

          • Exile1981

            Given his general stupidity I suspect he ends up winning a darwin award.

            Trudeau is an aberration.
            He was elected by baby boomer Liberals who grabbed for the nostalgia of a Canada that existed prior to the oil shock of 1973.
            And by idiot millenials who believe that legalizing marijuana is a good thing.

            You are forgetting millions of gimmigrants voters, especially the Homininae barbarousus mohammedanesis kind.

          • Canadian

            I wish!

          • Dave

            I don’t know, the social parasite progressives seems to be growing in leaps and bounds and will vote for anyone with nice hair that promises to legalize pot, as witnessed by our last election. And as a reminder, look at Alberta. Enough said.

        • Ho Hum

          This is why I am PRAYING Trump gets elected. When he becomes President it will mean the death of political correctness everywhere. Hopefully even in Canada our “Cuckservatives” will grow some balls and demand an end to mass third world immigration.

          • John

            Yeah, if elected his ‘attitude’ will become infectious. Things that never could be said will find expression. Leaders may once again ‘talk real’

          • Denis

            I hope he treats turdoe like the idiot turdoe is and bypass him to the smart premiers, aka Wall.

          • Richard_Romano

            That’s kinda why part of me wants Trump to win. I prefer Cruz, because he’s more realiably conservative (think of the justices that Trump could nominate), but no one sticks it to the media and political correctness better than Trump. He would make Trudeau’s life miserable.

        Partisanship is killing us. We aren’t a nation of blue and red States, we the United States.

        • Minicapt

          That’s Obama said in 2004.


          • luna

            It was true then & it’s true now.

      • Blacksmith

        That is my dream for down here also.

    • luna

      He’s the candidate most likely to start a civil war.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Don’t tease me like that!

        • luna

          If Trump does win I hope he tells Obama, “your fired”.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            At the inauguration.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            What I would really like to see would be him deliver the EXACT SAME SPEECH the fictional American President (Harrison Ford) delivered at the beginning of “Air Force One” but about ISIS and Islam.

          • Bataviawillem

            I don’t know if he will, but I’l bet you, he has the balls to say it.

          • John

            Yes! The very second he finishes reciting his oath of office.

          • I hope he turns the FBI on the dealings of the Obozo administration.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Oh, and THIS.
    Totally this:

    “Evangelicals understand this better than most. You read surveys that indicate the majority of Christian conservatives support Trump, and then you see the video: Trump on stage with pastors, looking pained as they pray over him, misidentifying key books in the New Testament, and in general doing a ludicrous imitation of a faithful Christian, the least holy roller ever. You wonder as you watch this: How could they be that dumb? He’s so obviously faking it.
    They know that already. I doubt there are many Christian voters who think Trump could recite the Nicene Creed, or even identify it. Evangelicals have given up trying to elect one of their own. What they’re looking for is a bodyguard, someone to shield them from mounting (and real) threats to their freedom of speech and worship.”

    Both parties are fascist in the US because socialism implies that unions are running the show when in fact the bailouts were proof of fascism, which both sides did their own form of it. The first one was when GWB was in office and 786 billion was used to bail out the banks which caused McCain to lose in Nov 2008. Obama wanted his own stimulus program to stimulate the economy, and that did nothing. Letting the banks fail would have been a mistake too. What people suggested at the time is the US should have taken a hard line. The world is in economic crises now again, but I would argue that we never truly left the Great Recession, since many job programs by all Western mainstream leaders tend to ignore those that fall off the job rolls. There was no huge torrent of growth. The youth have suffered without much hope at all. I doubt Trump would help the economy much. What the US needs is to draw back manufacturing, and the middle class needs a bailout of its own through massive stimulus and decreasing unnecessary taxes such as environmental. The Canadian Action party believes that the next generation will not only do worse but that there will be a permanent underclass, and they argue that the free trade agreements, FIPA, TPP and TTIP are going to be the agreements which plunges the West down permanently.

    They also argue against corporations but are in favour of small businesses. They pit neoliberalism starting with Reagan/Thatcher/Rogernomics as the main reason for these crises.

    They also believe Trump would be a fall guy but the Canadian Action party believes the US can only survive on the gold standard. They also want Canada to return to using the Bank of Canada again. I wholeheartedly agree.

    Therefore, terrorism and immigration are issues important to them but not so much in an interventionist manner. The CAP believes that the main issues are debt, economy and lack of family-supporting jobs. To me, nationalism and civic nationalism at that are the only ways to remedy the Western countries.

    • The tied is turning on Free Trade pacts, I drank the Kool-aid, they lied through their teeth.

      • luna

        I’m not sure what the alternative to participating free trade is any better, but free trade certainly is no free lunch.

        • Bataviawillem

          Ask the people in Hong Kong and Singapore, which are both complete free trade area’s, they worked hard, under hard conditions and worked themselves up to rich populations in a mater of 2 generations.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            I thought protectionism built up Japan and Korea. Remember they did start their own car companies and wages increased by wanting small businesses around that. To me. the mixed economy is real capitalism not like the voodoo so-called free markets that we are told that makes up modern capitalism.

            I feel that giving capitalism in the hands of corporations and accepting global capitalism on mass will cause the decline to accelerate further.

      • In the ’90’s everybody got drunk on capitalism. After the fall of Soviet Communism it seems the West attempted to replace communist ideology with global capitalist ideology — turning it into an “ism” with god-like qualities. Problem is capitalism isn’t an “ism”, it’s simply a function of the free market economy — actually it’s only a sub-function, limited to the financial market. Capitalism is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. It doesn’t describe everything that happens in the free market, it only describes the function of lending or borrowing at interest. The fight against tyrannies like communism was a fight for something much bigger — a fight for freedom (all sorts of freedom, including but not limited to capitalism and other free market dynamics).

        • Billy Bob Thornton

          Which is why a world war to me is the only way to save the West and this does not mean against the Muslim world and it is proven by how the West is adamant to fight Russia/China and BRICS.

          People do not believe me but NATO is on high alert in Eastern Europe.

          BCF cannot deny this because the troops are there and so are the large weapons.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            I hope a world war is avoided because a world war in the nuclear age is dangerous and it threatens humanity.

        ‘tide’ ;o)

  • John

    He’s not just a reformer; like most effective populists, he’s a
    whistleblower, a traitor to his class. Before he became the most
    ferocious enemy American business had ever known, Teddy Roosevelt was a
    rich guy. His privilege wasn’t incidental; it was key to his appeal.
    Anyone can peer through the window in envy. It takes a real man to throw
    furniture through it from the inside.

    That sums it up quite nicely.

    Trump makes billions and looses billions and so sees money as being largely meaningless. From his vantage point he must see America’s wealthy for the shallow and superficial beings they are. Some, of course, still have substance, but so many, many others don’t

    He is not shocking or vulgar. He is just RIGHT!
