Donald J Trump, the guy that defended his hand and penis size during a live presidential debate (seriously), is trying to lecture Ted Cruz on manners.
Yeah, I know. It’s like OJ Simpson teaching a class on marital conflict resolution. But, it gets worse! (I am seriously concerned that phrase will be used often in the next few years.)
Let’s start at the beginning.
No… Thereis toomuch. Let me sum up:
A super-PAC supporting Ted Cruz ran an ad that, in part, focused on Melania Trump’s promiscuous modeling history. (Trump’s most recent trophy wife, Melania, posed nude in a number of provocative poses. Presumably this was done for money, but let’s face it: attention isn’t an incredibly unbelievable motive for an attractive woman that hooks up with the most braggadocious blowhard in Manhattan.)
Now, for those of you completely unfamiliar with the way campaign finance laws work (don’t doze off, this is important), Super-PACs are funded by private donors, and must be completely independent of any official campaigns. What this means in practical terms, is that candidates are forbidden by law from any communication whatsoever with the PAC.
Let me put this a different way: Ted Cruz, and his campaign, did NOT condone that ad focused on Trump’s allegedly slutty wife. Ted did not approve it, organize it, or even know it existed until it first ran on television.
Even more than that, the Cruz campaign is legally prohibited from telling the super-PAC to “knock it off.”
Of course Trump knows this. But why let little things like “facts” get in the way of an opportunity to unleash a barrage of playground-quality insults at the one guy who still presents a legitimate obstacle to Trump’s presidential aspirations imperial rein.
Or, in this case, on Ted’s wife instead:
Are you fucking kidding me? Keepin’ it classy, right Trump? (Hey, at least he didn’t argue that she’s bitchy and on her period. Maybe this is some sort of nominal improvement from the tasteless attacks he continues to launch on that “bimbo” Megyn Kelly.)
This behavior doesn’t just fail to meet the standards of “presidential”… it literally fails to meet the standards of “adult behavior.”
Trump’s juvenile tweeted temper tantrums is quickly turning tiresome. But not to the collective hordes of bewildered masses who are blindly in awe of his “refusal to be PC!”
You can be non-PC without being a dick. It’s called being a grown up.
Oh, and Donald does have freakishly small hands.
