Somebody earlier suggested a shock collar for GOP nominee Trump, as a possible way to train him to withhold his natural impulses to be a nasty, classless, arrogant jerk.
I’m beginning to understand how more drastic measures may be warranted, in order to get him to buckle down and prepare for the next debate, or to at least give some measure of presidential appearance.
The circle of clingers and Yes-men he keeps at his side certainly couldn’t keep him on message for the first debate, and he fell apart. He was unprepared and made to look foolish by the absolutely worst candidate the Democrats could dig up.
Now, in frustration, he’s threatening to do that one thing that he’s being told by his advisers and everyone else not to do: be nasty.
“She’s nasty,” Trump told The New York Times in an interview published Friday night, “but I can be nastier than she ever can be.”
“Hillary Clinton was married to the single greatest abuser of women in the history of politics,” Trump told The Times. “Hillary was an enabler, and she attacked the women who Bill Clinton mistreated afterward. I think it’s a serious problem for them, and it’s something that I’m considering talking about more in the near future.”
All of these things are absolutely true. I would stand with the gilded toad and proudly denounce the entire Clinton clan for the moral wrongs of Bill Clinton, and his detestable shrew of a wife.
Even if you removed the mountains of scandal that Hillary Clinton is buried under, the horror stories told of her wicked and hateful nature should be enough to disqualify her for a job that requires diplomacy and the ability to maintain control of your emotions in stressful situations.
That being said – Trump. Slap a wig and a burlap sack on him and he’s Hillary’s dopplegänger in every sense.
Trump’s camp has been madly spinning that for him not to bring up Bill Clinton’s affairs during the first debate was a win for him.
Referring to Eric Trump’s comments earlier in the week that Donald Trump showed “courage” in not bringing up the issue at the debate, Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted Friday night, “Assume (Eric Trump) now believes he’s a coward.”
And this is the danger of bringing up anything outside of policy for Trump (not that he knows policy). He’s attempting to turn the entire process into an episode for TMZ or the National Enquirer, but it’s too easy for the seasoned pros with the Clinton machine to twist it into a win for Hillary.
Then, there’s that little matter of the fact that Trump has a long history of his own fidelity issues. He is an unrepentant adulterer, with three marriages and a penchant for misogyny.
Hypocrisy, thy name be “Trump.”
Asked if he ever cheated on his wives, Trump responded: “No — I never discuss it. I never discuss it. It was never a problem.”
And when asked specifically about his affair with Maples, he responded, “I don’t talk about it. I wasn’t president of the United States. I don’t talk about it. When you think of the fact that he was impeached, the country was in turmoil, turmoil, absolute turmoil. He lied with Monica Lewinsky and paid a massive penalty.”
Not talking about it doesn’t make it go away. It doesn’t make it less true. It doesn’t make Trump any better than Bill Clinton, simply because he wasn’t president. It still shows a deceitful, selfish nature.
The Clinton camp can take all of these things, and the heat generated by Trump’s continued attacks on former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, and can use it as an effective tool against Trump in the next debate and straight into November.
He is his own worst enemy.
