Trump Attack, Right Back Atcha

Rate: 2 Flag

This is how crazy our world is right now: “The Donald” has trumped Charlie Sheen as the most “listened to” man in America for the past few weeks.

What he is saying is ridiculous, but we’re still hanging on his every word. Or at least the media is. Don't we know better?

He used to be a Democrat. Now he’s a Birther!?

He’s donated truckloads of cash to high profile, liberal politicians like Chuck Shumer in the past, but now he’s gone all pro-life on us?

No wonder he couldn’t figure out how to categorize or explain Roe vs. Wade in a recent interview with Savannah Guthrie…

'When pressed to explain how his position on the right to privacy "squares" with his anti-abortion position, Trump responded: "Well, that's a pretty strange way of getting to pro-life. I mean, it's a very unique way of asking about pro-life. What does that have to do with privacy? How are you equating pro-life with privacy? "'


And now he’s proclaimed that he’s going to “announce” whether he will run for President or not during or after his Celebrity Apprentice finale. This is where things get really, really bizarre. It's as if our fake reality show lives, our real lives, and now our politics, have become so intertwined that even the smart ones among us are having trouble figuring out what is real and what is make-believe.

I give the “Cutting Through the Bullshit Award” of the week to comedian Robin Williams. Simply stated, Williams said in a CBS Sunday Morning interview:  “If he wants to see Obama’s birth certificate, I want to see his hairline.” That seems not only fair, but very reasonable given the nature of the debate.
