Donald Trump stumbled through dual delusions in the early hours of Monday morning. Neither of them come close to reality and both speak to the boastful arrogance of a man with no idea what he’s doing.
The first delusion that the obnoxious swindler seems to be grappling with is that beating Hillary Clinton in the general election should be easy.
“We are going to win,” Trump said. “Polls are just now coming out where I’m tied with Hillary, one just came out where I’m ahead of Hillary, and I haven’t started on Hillary yet.”
Actually, an Indiana poll released yesterday has Trump leading Clinton in a head-to-head matchup. With the exception of Rasmussen, however, every poll has Clinton with a comfortable lead.
The Rasmussen poll has Trump and Clinton tied. If pitted against Sanders, the gap becomes even wider, in Sanders’ favor.
The second outrageous bit of nonsense the gilded toad wants to begin the week with is that he has more foreign policy experience than anyone in the race.
This was his knee-jerk reaction to a joke tossed in his general direction by President Obama over the weekend, at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.
“In fairness, he has spent years meeting with leaders from around the world: Miss Sweden, Miss Argentina, Miss Azerbaijan,” Obama said Saturday night.
This was in reference to Trump’s beauty pageant connections.
So the man who had to be schooled on what the Nuclear Triad is by Senator Marco Rubio, had to be informed that China had no involvement with the TPP trade agreement by Senator Rand Paul (after a lengthy on-stage diatribe about it, during a debate), and was embarrassed by radio host, Hugh Hewitt, when he confused the Quds with the Kurds, thinks he has more foreign policy experience than two senators, a former Secretary of State, and a governor.
“I do deal with leaders around the world, I built a great company,” Trump said on CNN. “Right now we have hundreds of deals being negotiated all over the world by my company. I deal with presidents, and I deal with prime ministers, I deal with everybody.”
“I probably have more experience than virtually anybody looking at this office,” Trump said, adding that he “made a lot of money.”
Trump can’t shake the notion that running a country is not the same as running a company, and if some of these “deals” he’s working out in other nations are any indicator of how he’ll manage the presidency, we’d better all hit our knees and pray for sanity to prevail in this race.
