Donald Trump Jumps The Stupid Shark By Promising to Kick Escaped Drug Lord’s A$$


I am fairly confident that most readers of any political persuasion already know that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is not very bright. However, I fear he has truly jumped the stupid shark this time.

Now what could ever prompt me to say this when he has been running around claiming all Mexicans are rapists?

It was a combination of reading an “expletive-laden” interview he did with Robert Costa of the Washington Post, in which he swore his way through it while watching Fox News and cheering himself on as if he were commenting on an epic film hero come to life. Discussing himself, a peevish and rather clueless Trump told Costa “I get the biggest crowds. I get the biggest standing ovations.”

[Eyeing the television, Trump gets up to watch another Fox News segment about his Arizona gathering. “Jeanine Pirro, let’s see what she has to say about me,” he said as he settled into his couch. When a picture of the Mexican laborer accused of killing a San Francisco woman is put on screen, Trump said: “Look at that guy, look at what he did, killing that beautiful girl. [Expletive] animal.” He returned several minutes later to continue the interview.]

When he wasn’t watching himself with the eager worship of a child or an egomaniac, he announced proudly that seeing his huge crowds, he had come up with the phrase the “silent majority”. When Costa asked Trump if he was concerned that it would remind people of Nixon, Trump bellowed:

Nah. Nobody remembers that. Oh, is that why people stopped using [the phrase]? Maybe. Nobody thinks of Nixon. I don’t think of Nixon when I think of the silent majority. The silent majority today, they’re going to vote for Trump. Remember, many Republicans didn’t vote for Mitt Romney. He didn’t inspire people. They’re going to vote for me. And I’ll also get the Hispanics, you watch.

Oh, yes, he’ll “get” the Hispanics. It’s all in the bag for Trump. A gang of hardcore Republican haters loves him, and he — like Sarah Palin and Scott Walker and, well, basically the entire Republican Party — believes in the hype. He believes in the bubble. The epistemic closure strategy is working perfectly. Everyone in the bubble loves him.

At this point, Trump is becoming shades of the Monsieur Thénardier of this story, “brutal and abusive” and yet, also a clown. He is lawless and has declared bankruptcy too many times to count. He’s a petty little man who doesn’t realize he’s the butt of the joke. He’s cruel and vindictive but sees himself as more than he is.

And… it gets worse. While Costa captured Trump so perfectly that it’s impossible not to appreciate his objectivity, Trump in raw form is also interesting. Someone thought it would be a good idea to let Donald Trump tweet. And he does it a lot.

The news of drug kingpin Joaquin Guzman (“El Chapo”) escaping from Mexico’s Altiplano prison over the weekend went to Trump’s head and he took that heady sense of self to Twitter to share his basic approach to running for office, which can be condensed into “I told you so!! Neener Neener!” and while Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton would “negotiate” with Guzman, Trump promises us all he would “kick his a$$!”

“The U.S. will invite El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord who just escaped prison, to become a U.S. citizen because our “leaders” can’t say no!” <-- a Donald tweet. Never mind that in reality, illegal border crossings are at lowest levels in 40 years. Republicans could actually take some credit for this, even in their do-nothing state, given that their refusal to pass a jobs bill or invest in infrastructure has caused construction jobs to plummet and this lack of construction jobs may account for a small part of the reduction of illegal border crossings. Sure, Republicans aren’t doing anything for the U.S., but they are making this a place that isn’t attractive enough to want to bust into. Quite a record.

“Mexico’s biggest drug lord escapes from jail. Unbelievable corruption and USA is paying the price. I told you so!” <-- a Donald tweet. "Can you envision Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton negotiating with 'El Chapo', the Mexican drug lord who escaped from prison? ...." <-- a Donald tweet. "...Trump, however, would kick his ass!" <-- a Donald tweet. (Bonus points for speaking of himself in the third person. The royal We is up next.) Though, to be fair, even a stopped clock is right twice and all of that. "I hear that sleepy eyes @chucktodd will be fired like a dog from ratings starved Meet The Press? I can't imagine what is taking so long!" <-- a Donald tweet. We hear you, Trump. We do. But, Trump is so Trump, "Convention Center officials in Phoenix don't want to admit that they broke the fire code by allowing 12-15,000 people in 4,000 code room." Neener-neener! Kick his a$$! Next up: Trump will also kick ISIL's a$$! Take that, losers. Update: Apparently by "kick his a$$", Donald Trump meant "call the FBI and beg for help." TMZ reported that the Donald called the FBI to report what he perceived as a threatening tweet from El Chapo’s son. “The tweet was written in Spanish, with the rough English translation, ‘Keep f***ing around and I’m gonna make you swallow your bitch words you f***ing whitey milks***tter (that’s a homophobic slur).'”

Basically, a tweet like the rest of us get every day. Trump’s solution? Call the federal government and beg for help. Your small government conservative in action.

  1. As if he can’t make himself look like an even bigger jackass, he does this.

    Keep it up, Donald… your antics makes it all the more easier to deliver a Democratic lead Congress and White House in 2016.

  2. Trump thinks he’ll get the Hispanic vote, because his investigators in Hawaii (you know, the ones he sent four years ago to dig dirt on Obama) told him so.

    Problem is, those investigators are as real as Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.

  3. What’s he going to do BOMB Mexico and have a war on our soil?

    WE invaded the northern part of Mexico which became Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

    We’ve been fighting the “war” on drugs since forever.
    Nixon made it a PRIORTY in 1971 and Nancy Reagan again made it a PRIORITY in 1986ish.
    It’s 2015 and what have we accomplished because we’re still at this “war”.

    Hopefully Donald won’t get the GOP nomination and could go ROUGE INDEPENDANT and syphon off a chuck of the GOP votes.
    Donald is the democrats best friend!!

  4. Old DT would have a very big wet mark on his pants if in reality he saw drug kingpin Joaquin Guzman (“El Chapo”) within a 100 yards of him. Yes he would most likely have a large brown stain in back as well.

  5. Don’t trust these Rambo types. They get us into trouble. Bush?

    Also let’s not forget: McCain—Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.

    See what I mean? We would have been shipping body bags back to the USA 24/7 at this moment IF you know who was in the W.H. The Rambo personality would have dared Iran to cross the “red” line, and guess what? If Iran as much as came across 1/4 of an inch—Mr. Bomb, Bomb would have unleashed, you guessed it… Shock and Awe II. And Lindsey would have been happy and giddy.

  6. Given how El Chapo can get around without detection, Trump might want to watch his back. I’d given anything to see Trump attempt to kick his ass. It’s one instance I might cheer El Chapo.

  7. I’m not condoning this El Chapo guy or his sons drug dealing & violence. But it would be super awesome if they shut Trump the hell up once & for all. I seriously can’t take him anymore. There’s a rumour going around El Chapo escaped to retaliate against Trump. Don’t know how true it is but I’m guessing he doesn’t appreciate all Mexicans being referred to as rapists. Nor does he take lightly some pudgy goof ball with a bad comb over threatening to “kick his ass”.

  8. Y’all remember Jimmy ‘the Greek’ Snyder ?
    Well, for those that don’t, he was a well known sports analyst and handicapper that made some stupid racially insensitive remarks …but not necessarily mean-spirited. He was shamed, fired from the sports shows he appeared on, and was generally shunned after that.

    Today, we have a consummate ass uttering things dumber and nastier, and they vault to the top of Republican popularity, with many others in the Insanity Party joining an amen chorus !

  9. Trump all the way !!!!!!! He is only saying out loud what most of us are afraid to say…….. He’s got my vote and I am a Democrat so there!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. NOW we know how Trump is going to pay for his border wall- kick El Chapo’s ass and take his money LOL!!!

  11. I’m surprised Trump’s “legal” immigrants haven’t walked off their minimum wage jobs, but they need to feed their families.

    El Chapo has many connetions in most every city major in the U.S. and is even more powerful than Trump can dream of, he’s messing with the wrong person.

    Can you imagine him in a U7 meeting and insulting Angela Merkle and/or Francois Hollande?

  12. This like a lot of CNN’s coverage of Trump — rude, raw, unthought and disrespectful of the huge audience of American voters he has. Make a greater effort to be fair to him.

  13. Poly, Yahoo is reporting today a tweet from El Chapo to Trump. It isn’t pretty. Check it out.

    Tump really had better watch his back now.

    Trump just can’t keep his mouth shut.. Is this not a symptom of alzhiemers?

  14. Trump has pissed of EL CHAPO.
    El Chapo has a Twitter account…he is communicating his thoughts about Trump on it. I believe he told Trump to shut up or else. Trump will talk trash back to El Chapo, then we will have a war of words between those two. Nice, having a Presidential wannabe feuding with the Drug Lord killer on a national / World stage. Trump has stepped into it now. He had to call the FBI (for protection). It doesn’t get wilder than this. To be continued……Yikes!

  15. That’s rather interesting there Vicki, I say a lot of things here on Politicususa that other liberals are too namby pamby to say, and I get nothing but grief from the Conservatives as a result.

  16. Yep…Trump’s Got the GOP by the Balls!

    How does he have the power to elect Clinton all by himself? By running as an Independent. Two factors usually prevent candidates who lose nominations from running as Independents. One, they lack the enormous amount of money needed to pursue that path (pay the lawyers to get them on 50 state ballots, etc.). Two, they have a sense of proportion and decency, and they figure that if primary voters rejected them, it’s time to go home.

    Well, Trump has the dough and lacks the decency.

  17. If they catch EL CHAPO, El Trumpo will be claiming it’s because he was able to bait him and smoke him out. I hope he’s able to avoid the authorities long enough to scare the shit out of Trump in someway. Not to hurt him, but something that publicly humiliates him in an epic way. That would be quite festive!

  18. According to the many books and articles I have read in Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. If he is going to retaliate against Trump he will do it by harming his daughter Ivanka Trump, something not to hard for him to do because of the big criminal enterprise network of hitmen he have which are within 10,000 to 20,000. Trump if I were you I will apologize to Chapo because there is no doubt he is going to get You, he can wait until you are out of the race.
    Time is now on Chapo’s side.
