Trump, War Hero

So, in response to what happened in Nice, France, and despite the fact that he can’t possibly know right now what motivated the mass killer, Donald Trump wants to declare war.

It should surprise exactly no one that the draft-avoiding presidential candidate’s first response to the Nice tragedy was to essentially ask for the authority, should Americans lose their minds and make him commander-in-chief, to send other people’s sons and daughters to die for his ignorance and impulsiveness. If you are surprised by his response, you haven’t been awake for the past year.

What would be a genuine surprise, though, is if some television journalist—if there are any journalists left on television—would actually ask the tough-talking blowhard just how his war declaration would have stopped a sociopath in France from driving a truck through a gathering of people celebrating French independence, or how it will stop a similar attack in the future. But don’t hold your breath waiting for such a journalistic breakthrough on television. TV journalists are way too busy covering the phony drama surrounding who will be dumb enough to become Trump’s official ass-kissing adulator. And by that I mean Mike Pence.

    Duane: As I mentioned before, Trump believes that his military school experience equals real military experience, so of course his knowledge of modern military tactics is superior to anyone else’s. He’ll wipe out ISIS, Al Queda, Obama, and any other Sharia-loving Muslims before lunch and then, while dining, plan the afternoon’s victories. What a man!

    • I don’t know if you saw that 60 Minutes interview last night, Bud, but what a man, indeed. With every interview, with every rally, with every time he opens his mouth, he scares me more.

    • Yes! By the way, the right-wingers are making a lot of use of that truck weapon. Over and over again you see posts saying, “Will Obama now try to outlaw trucks?” That’s how far from reality some of these folks are. They either don’t get it or can’t get it or won’t get it.
