Ignoramus Par Excellence

"Global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax!"
"This very expensive GLOBAL WARMING bullshit has got to stop. Our planet is freezing, record low temps, and our GW scientists are stuck in ice."
"Autism has become an epidemic. We've had so many instances, people that work for me, just the other day, two years old, two-and-a-half years old, a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic."
"As has been stated continuously in the press, people are pouring across our borders unabated. Public reports routinely state great amounts of crime are being committed by illegal immigrants. This must be stopped and it must be stopped now."
"The right of self-defense doesn't stop at the end of your driveway. That's why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states."
"I try and pay as little tax as possible, because I hate what they do with my tax money. I hate the way they spend our money."
"We are going to repeal Obamacare. We are going to repeal Obamacare. We are going to replace Obamacare with something so much better."
"Raising the prevailing wage paid to  H-1Bs will force companies to give these coveted entry-level jobs to the existing domestic pool of unemployed native and immigrant workers in the U.S., instead of flying in cheaper workers from overseas."
"It's not necessarily loyalty to me, it's loyal to the country. They [Trump faithful] want great security. They want great military. They want to take care of their vets. They want a border. They want a wall."
American Presidential Republican aspirant, Donald Trump

The world waits with bated breath. If it manages to hold its breath until October, it might expire for lack of oxygen, but it begins to look increasingly as though nothing can hold back the incredible tide of support for this ignoramus who celebrates himself as America's answer to its declining power and prestige. He has all the answers that anyone could possibly pose questions for and those answers are unfailingly trite and stupid beyond belief.

But he believes them because they've issued from his mouth independent of a brain and those who celebrate his wisdom and his business acumen, his impeccable knowledge of world history and international affairs, his capacity to administer the American business of state and security, feel he represents the answer to their wishes to advance the fortunes of the United States of America. This is a man who, if a cruelly clever caricature was imagined as the precise opposite of Barack Obama, fits the bill.

There was and is so much that is not ideal about Barack Obama, and his failures were many, but his investiture as the first man of colour, integrity and intelligence to reside in the White House was one of distinction and promise, while the possibility that this vain clown could do so is enough to make a ghost blanch with fear of the unknown but fairly accurately assumed outcome. Those in the international community looking on incredulously, viscerally gasp in dismay.

But the seemingly impossible has become all too possible, and now those foreign leaders are taking a deep gulp of air and re-imagining their response. David Cameron, for one, almost but not quite retracting some of his statements in description of the detestable Republican candidate for POTUS: "If he came to our country I think he would unite us all against him" he had previously said, describing Trump as "divisive, stupid and wrong". Now saying he would be "very happy" to meet Trump ... "American presidential candidates have made a habit of coming through Europe and through the UK so if that happens I'd be very happy to meet him."


So Muslim-terrorist-fearing Americans will vote for Donald Trump, and those who feel Mexicans should stay in Mexico will be loyal to  him as well as trade protectionists and foreign-policy isolationists, all eager to vote for their champion who feels as they do and can be relied upon to steer the country in the direction that all want to achieve. He's their man.

In fact, if any group is truly passionate about anything, he will be prepared to give a directive from the White House to validate that passion, the sole exception being any group hoping he will bow out -- Just kidding folks; my business empire needs my undivided attention!

Vaccine skeptic Dr. Ben Carson who couldn't make the grade as a credible candidate can expect perhaps a Health Department role in a Trump administration, to enact federal legislation outlawing all vaccinations and therefore return America to a state of natural holistic health, where it will be completely redundant to even remotely imagine a universal health care system to benefit Americans since they won't need one at that juncture.

If Trump says so, it must be so.
