Regular readers know my affinity for the upcoming movie Deadpool, a Marvel character who is self aware and breaks the “fourth-wall.” Making a speech in New Hampshire, Donald Trump has emulated Deadpool by becoming self-aware. The billionaire bloviator of birtherism Donald Trump, whose rhetoric leads all of his opponents in terms of being jam-packed with fecal matter, said politicians are full of “sh*t.
Donald Trump, still fuming over his disappointing second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses, said Thursday that politicians are “full of s–t.”
“I won’t do it. I was going to say they’re really full of s–t,” he added. “But I won’t say that.”
“No, it’s true. It’s true. I won’t say it. I won’t say it. But they are,” Trump said during the New Hampshire event, coming just five days before the Granite State’s first-in-the-nation primary.
Having met many politicians since beginning to cover politics a decade ago, I concur with Mr. Trump, with very few exceptions most political rhetoric is imbued with some degree of poop. Some politicians spread the guano more than others, and as for Donald Trump, he is the king of cow pies.
Look at his use of hyperbole. In Art of the Deal Trump calls one of his rhetorical tools “truthful hyperbole.” He both defends and praises it as “an innocent form of exaggeration — and a very effective form of promotion.” An objective observer would say there is no such thing as “truthful” hyperbole, they would call it lying. Trump has pledged to be “the greatest jobs president God ever created,” to be “better on women’s health issues,” how the Blacks love him (as well as “the evangelicals” and “the Mexicans,” how he seize Iran’s oil reserves, beat up on China while making “them like us,” force Mexico to pay for a new wall along its border with the United States, and of course to round up and deport 11 million undocumented immigrants.
Trump’s meadow muffins, goes beyond his hyperbole. Look at the way he smears his stool on anyone who has the nerve to disagree with him, or even worse pass him in the polls; he called Ben Carson a child molester, Ted Cruz is a cheater; Jeb Bush is “low-energy,” a “loser,” an “embarrassment” and “dumb as a rock.” Chris Christie is a little boy, and the editor of the newspaper who endorsed him a lap dog.” Megyn Kelly is a “Bimbo,” Cheri Jacobus “begged him for a job” and of course, Hillary Clinton got “Schlonged.”
His attacks and hyperbole are much more than typical political poopsies. Trump uses it as an attention-getter and a tool of obscuration. Sadly every time he unloads himself upon another target, the mainstream media eats it up, just like my dog used to after her frozen poopcycles when she trolls the backyard in the winter months.
The sad part is eventually my dog learned to eat the frozen feces, the still hasn’t learned to ignore the sh*t Trump spews.
