After GOP Presidential nominee Donald Trump and his campaign spent several days conning the news world into hyping his specific time & place where he would address his 5-year campaign of racism against President Barack Obama, Trump left no doubt in anyone’s mind, including his supporters, that he was indeed the lowest of human scum.
The entire air time ran between 20 and 25 minutes, beginning with a Trump surrogate inviting several very misguided war veterans, who were on the stage, to heap praise upon Trump. Only then did Trump enter.
Trump began by promoting his just-opened Washington, D.C. hotel, which lasted about two minutes. Finally he got around to addressing Obama’s citizenship:
“Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it. I finished it. You know what I mean? President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period.”
Trump allotted 33 seconds of the approximately 25 minutes of air time to utter those 32 words. He then quickly departed the stage, refusing to take questions although the appearance was billed as a press conference.
After leaving the stage Trump invited all the news media’s camera people and photographers on a tour of his new hotel, refusing to allow any reporters or producers to go with their crews. (Later, all three networks held a conference call and agreed to scrub all video and photos of the tour.)
With this carnival show, the lowest of lows ever by Trump and his Presidential campaign – even considering his “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters” – plainly signifies, without any doubt whatsoever, that, after Trump and his Trumpism run for the Presidency, there’s only one way American politics could sink any lower:
Resurrect Al Capone to run for President of the United States while using his resurrected henchmen to carry out assassinations on any one that didn’t speak kindly of him and/or that Capone simply didn’t like.
