Trump and Nutz

Trump and Nutz

Yesterday, Mr. Trump gave a talk in New Hampshire.  During the talk he decided to simply open up the floor to questions from the crowd.

My gut feeling is that he decided that “practice fielding questions from just anyone,” might help him in future debates.  Now, that would by my reasoning however; I would not do it if I were him because he loses control of the setting.

True to form there were some nut jobs, or plants, that got the mic and asked some really far out questions.

Mr. Trump is short on substance anyway, so simply ignoring the bad questions and or placating them with “yea yea sure sure” was his strategy.

One of the loons talked about Fema camps and “visions” of bad things happening, which got no play in the press.

Another loon (first question actually) asked about the “Muslim problem” and accused President Obama of being a Muslim and not an American Born citizen.  Trump used his standard answer “were looking into a lot of things, next.”

The press has seized on this to once again attack Trump and of course his rivals are attacking him.. ”outrageous” on cries and another calls him a clown and not fit for the office!”  His opponents have nothing to lose and by saying things like “outrageous” simply gets them printed or Air Time.

These are all great sound bites but, what they are not reporting is that Mr. Trump simply placated the (nut or plant) and moved on.

Trump knows that Obama is a good guy, not a Muslim, and certainly not an alien!

No matter how much you disagree with this president, allowing such talk to go un-challenged is pretty close to saying it yourself.  If the press and other candidates have their way, they will spin this as Trump said it.

Tip:  When you run for any office, everything you say (or don’t say,) has to be, “Has to be” metered with “how will this be perceived by the voters, and how will it be used against me.”

Practice debates should be only with your staff, with no outside people anywhere near it.

In 1990 Clayton Williams was running for Governor of the state of Texas.  He made an off the cuff remark at a party for friends, that cost him the election.  He suggested that some victims of rape should “simply relax and enjoy it!”

Now this was said at a private party, drinking was involved and we don’t know the context of the statement.  He said it was part of a joke but, never the less, it cost him the election.

When you are in the public “eye” so to speak, you must control the environment and you must be rehearsed.  While Mr. Trump has defied the laws of politics thus far, this cannot last forever.

The sophomoric behavior and truculent attitude must stop, he must be armed with some substance when asked questions, and he needs to control his stump speeches.

  • When loons like those two were allowed to speak, they hurt him.
  • Mr. Trump should employ people to vet the questions, and the people, before they are handed a mic.
  • Those two loons should never have been allowed to speak on camera.
  • I stress camera, as every time he speaks there are many live television feeds; and he knows this!  Don’t play to your competition.

His candidacy will implode if he does not take control of it.

It Was You #itwasyou

The following essay or talking points were written by a guy named Jeff Williamson. These were posted on a radio stations site and thus expounded upon at length today, taking up much airtime. That made this post relevant. 

Obama not going to Paris or sending the VP or even John Kerry was lugubrious at best. 

I cannot vouch for the truth of this, in its entirety, I do however remember many of the things of which he writes as actual events that transpired exactly as he writes about them..

Some of these points may be a reason why Obama did not go to Paris…

For the record I am not a truth-er. I had great hope for Obama, and I felt like he could help unite the races, instead of tearing them apart by fomenting racism.  His actions to date speak much louder than words, even the words written below.

The following are Jeff’s statements:

To President Obama:

It was you who assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”
It was you who bowed in submission before the Saudi King.
It was you who sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.

It was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the WH.
It was you who ordered both Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested that the mosques you have visited adjust their decor.
It was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.
It was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.
It was you who said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.

It is you who has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.

It is you who follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.
It is you who departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.
It was you who was un-characteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.
It was you who appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett , who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.
