We’re still in the middle of 2015, and the hype for the 2016 Presidential Election has just begun. With every campaign comes some form of major stupidity from at least one presidential candidate–specifically, media business mogul Donald Trump.
For the past month, Republican candidate Donald Trump’s gargantuan acts of stupidity have been making headlines all across the country. In his presidential campaign announcement speech, Trump made derogatory remarks at Mexican immigrants, saying that they are, “in many cases, criminals, drug dealers, rapists, etc.” even though that is never the case. As a result of his racial slurs towards Mexicans, NBC and Spanish-language network Univision severed their business relationship to Trump and decided not to air the Miss USA or Miss Universe pageants–both of which he’s owned since 1996–on their networks. Looks like no one’s gonna watch the world’s most beautiful models vie for the crown this year–or for many years to come–thanks to that asshole.
At the first GOP debate two nights ago, Trump slammed Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly for asking questions regarding the misogynistic, sexist comments that he made in the past–he’s called them “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals”–deeming them “ridiculous” and “off-base.” To further escalate the situation, Trump offended Kelly by telling CNN’s Don Lemon she had “blood coming out of her wherever.” I thought he was referring to her menstrual cycle, but he said that blood was coming out of her eyes and her nose.
I may be a Democrat, but I think Donald Trump is an embarrassment to the Republican Party. He thinks that he can eschew punishment simply because he’s got millions and billions of dollars to his name. But guess what? As long as Trump runs his vulgar mouth about Mexican immigrants, women, and other minorities–he already claims to believe that autism is caused by vaccines, which incensed me because there is no scientific evidence to support it–everyone and every business he’s associated with will completely disown him for good, and he’ll be forced to drop out of the 2016 presidential race. (Then again, how the hell did Trump get ahead of Jeb Bush and other notable GOP candidates in the national polls?) Trump’s being booted by NBC, Univision, Macy’s, who dropped his clothing line, and NASCAR, who ended their sponsorship with Trump by declaring they will not host its post season awards banquet at his golf resort in Doral, Florida, has proved that much.
Although I have no ill will against others, I sincerely hope that Donald Trump gets dropped from the presidential race because if he ever gets elected President, I’m afraid he’ll bastardize America much further than it’s already been.
I always say that politics is dirty business. Politics has gotten even messier now that Donald Trump is involved.
And I thought George W. Bush was the worst.
