Like a line from Alanis Morissette’s Isn’t it Ironic, Donald Trump is threatening to run as an Independent if he doesn’t get his due respect from the GOP. “Isn’t it ironic….don’t you think?”
He told CNN’s Don Lemon last Wednesday that he’d leave the Republican party if “they don’t treat me with a certain amount of decorum and respect.” What a dick. (Ahem….not you Lemon!) You couldn’t define it any better:
- He’s always railing on President Obama. Forget what you think about Mr. Obama’s policies, Trump makes it personal against the man, his family and the office! Disrespects the president.
- He claims that the Mexican government is sly and cunning, and they send the worst of their people to the US – they send murderers and rapists. Disrespects Mexicans.
- Claims that overwhelming majority of violent crimes are committed by blacks and Latinos. No facts, no data, just his usual blathering bullshit. Disrespects all Latinos.
- He mocked the handicapped reporter by flailing his arms and twisting his voice as he ridiculed him. Disrespects handicapped.
- He mocked the Chinese as he shrugged his shoulders and attempted to distort his face, exclaiming “we want deal.” Disrespects Asians.
- He made fun of Senator John McCain claiming that McCain wasn’t a war hero because he was captured – topping it off with “I like people that weren’t captured.” Disrespects war vets.
- And women – remember the public feud with Rosie O’Donnell where he called her unattractive and made fun of her size, “….she’s a slob.” And the first Republican debate with his suggestion that Megyn Kelly must have been on her period because he thought the questions she asked were silly, suggesting that “…blood coming out of her whatever.” Disrespects women.
- Most recent, he suggested we close off our borders to all Muslims coming into this country, citizen or otherwise! Disrespects Muslims.
I can go on, but I’m stopping because it’s time for dinner!
Open note to DJTrump: You’re no better than any of the individuals or groups that you belittle. You are a zealot with hatred toward others and you are brainwashing weak people that are falling in line behind you, some out of fear, and some out of desperation. Hmmm…this descriptions sounds sooooo familiar. Isn’t it ironic….don’t you think? Respect is earned Trump – it isn’t something you can demand, and you can’t hold us hostage with threats to go run as an Independent. And as an Independent voter, i resent you thinking we’d have you! You have overextended your 15 minutes sir, and common-sensed, decent people are tired.
