There must be something about Donald Trump's tastebuds that make him crave the flavor of his own foot. I mean, he sticks his foot in his mouth so often, that's the only explanation that I can come up with.
CNN has a list of groups that he's managed to offend. They include the disabled, Muslims, Seventh-Day Adventists, Blacks, Asians and Women. The list also includes the other Republican candidates but, that's the nature of the beast when you're running for president. (You think Kennedy and Nixon didn't exchange barbs?)
And yet, he's still the front-runner as the Republican nominee!! Sure, his numbers have dropped, but HE'S STILL LEADING IN THE POLLS!
Has the Republican voter worn blinders this ENTIRE campaign season? I mean, I KNOW that there are black Republicans and disabled Republicans and female Republicans. There HAVE to be. And yet, 31% of those polled would still vote for him. Sheep...
UPDATE: (12-14-2015) The Don has managed to do it again. He recently introduced an idea that would prevent ANY muslims in the country. Now, this may seem relatively harmless except, this will include American citizens!! That's right. We're supposed to shut down immigration of muslim people. Then, muslims already in the country must stay in the country because, if they leave the country for ANY reason, they will not be allowed to re-enter, even American citizens who are muslim!! And, the real kicker, this may not include our muslim Americans fighting in Iraq and Afganistan, but he feels that we should watch them, or, as he puts it, "be ever vigilant".
Now, where did I leave my swastika armbands?
Ben Carson, the current runner-up, can't seem to get support from the one group that he should bet on! While he leads the Republican field with Blacks, Hillary and Bernie get more support than he does.
Ted Cruz likes to misquote others regarding national issues...
Marco Rubio can't seem to find a fact he couldn't distort, as well. Maybe I'm just super-sensitive to the failings of the Republican group, but DAMN!! And, let's look at what other groups are saying about the candidate.
Jeb Bush? Well... Sorry Jeb. You seem poised to lose your place at the big-boy table.
Now, let's look at Hillary's records at FactCheck.org regarding recent statements. Sure, she's a politician so things are a different shade of gray, but fewer outright untrue statements come from her and/or her campaign.
And Bernie? Well, he may not get his facts straight 100% of the time, but at least his solutions to the nation's ills make sense! If you look at his campaign platform, I'm sure that you'll find, at least, five stances that can affect you in a positive way.
One more link. This points to the New York Times and their take on the public statements made by most of the presidential candidates. VERY revealing!
Christ, folks. Vote with your brain. Vote with your wallet. Just check what the candidates say and apply it to your own lives and experiences.
