Huffington Post to Donald Trump: Send out the clowns

Vacuous, toffee-nosed, malodorous pervert Donald Trump opened his festering gob and said of John McCain:

“He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

So the Huffington Post said this:

After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won’t report on Trump’s campaign as part of The Huffington Post’s political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump’s campaign is a sideshow. We won’t take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you’ll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.

Next, I’d like to see the elections commission print up a special scratchy ballots just for Trump supporters, so they really feel it when they stick them up their cornholes.

    On the other hand McCain IS a war hero because he was captured. And made it home.
    He was less a hero and more a POW. Which, along with family influence, he capitalized on to get where he has been (in my opinion) far too long.
    D.T. may not have said as elegantly as he could/should have but the sentiments are correct.

    On the other hand every American who served honorably in Viet Nam, and in any and every other war/police action is a “war hero.”

    Attacking one’s service is cheap and wrong. Attacking what has been done by the media regarding that service is not. This was an attack on the media, IMHO, much more so than on McCain.

    I do so agree with all the above. Mr. Trump’s candidacy is an acute embarrassment
    However, whether he is or isn’t a candidate isn’t Huffington Post’s call to make.

    It seems to me, Simcha, you are overreacting. Or reacting for the wrong reasons. The Donald is a breath of fresh air in a town full of slick phonies, 90% of whom, sell their souls for votes. And it’s not just your corrupt President Obama. Jeb Bush just sold HIS soul for votes. He gave his approval to Transsexuals in the American military. Wow! And he is supposed to be a devout Catholic. It’s true that Trump speaks recklessly. But so what? He speaks his mind, a rarity in Washington as well as in Ottawa. You don’t have to take everything he says literally. Unfortunately, he has serious flaws that go far beyond his willy – nilly outspokenness. BTW John McCain ran a very stupid campaign in 2008 and made it impossible for his running mate, the governor of Alaska(forget her name)to be effective. So who the hell would vote for him. He didn’t deserve to be elected. Now, if DT had been baptized Catholic and had absorbed some of the Church’s profound spirituality he would make a formidable president. Someone you could be proud of. He has some great natural virtues that along with many other great business leaders, inventors, risk takers, helped make the United States a great nation, even with all it’s sins and faults. But, he does not seem to grasp that Western Civilization is under attack and that abortion,SSM, and so much more, great evils that they are, are symptoms of a much greater evil that is destroying everything good and from God. Your nation and mine have rejected God. So even though I like him, he is basically a very shallow man. Alas he was shaped by mainline Protestantism, specifically Norman Vincent Peale. Enough said! There’s a story I heard some years ago about Peale. He was very popular in the 50s and many Protestants considered him, believe it or not, to be the Apostle to replace St Paul. So, an enthusiastic guy asked one of your statesman, John Foster Dulles(?) if he though Peale was the equal of St Paul. The guy replied to him. He thought “Paul was appealing and Peale appalling.” Any Catholic, at least from my generation, with any understanding of the faith at all understands the tragedy of Original Sin which this Protestant statesman captured so brilliantly. God bless.

    Honestly, If the republicans actually put him on their ballot…they deserve to lose.
