Donald Trump: The Dung Beetle of Democracy

Hi there! I'm Dave-El and welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, the blog that prefers readers who don't get captured.

So this guy, Donald Trump, he's really making a damn fool of himself, isn't he? Going around saying stupid and/or offensive things, he has of late turned his Trump-O-Matic Shit Blaster 3000 (patent pending) on John McCain and Lindsey Graham as well the Des Moines (IA) Register. Well, if nothing else, the Donald is giving us some good entertainment during these early months of the 2016 Presidential contest. But that's all it is, just entertainment. I mean, no one is taking this tactless asshole seriously, are they?

Hold on! I'm being handed some info from my crack I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You research team.

Donald Trump is leading in the polls.

Well, that's...something...not at all fucking possible!

OK, settle down! This is actually nothing new. Nutcase GOP candidates have trended well in the early days of prior presidential races. For example, Herman Cain led in the polls early in 2011 prior to the 2012 race. But then who had heard of Herman Cain before then? Who has heard of him since?

But Donald Trump has been a part of the cultural landscape for a long time now. Granted, that barnacle encrusted part below the waterline but still...  Donald Trump's wacky campaign-a-looza feels different somehow from the goofball candidates that have come before. No, I don't believe for a moment that Trump will make it anywhere near the GOP nomination for President, let alone to the Presidency. Donald Trump will fade as we get tired of his antics.

But the question is when. Other nut case fringe candidates have a "Use by" date stamped on their asses the moment they announce they're running. Going back to Herman Cain, he flared up then flamed out pretty much within the span of a week. But the Donald is the Energizer Bunny of stupidity and arrogance. He can keep going and going and going. Unlike most politicians, Trump actual gains heat by saying even more stupid, outrageous and offensive things. Take this weekend's comments by Trump that Sen. John McCain was not a war hero. If anybody else said that, there would be such an outcry of offense and indignation, that person would be dead in the water. Donald Trump said it and yes, there was still such an outcry of offense and indignation but that just adds more hot air to Trump's sails.  He actually thrives on saying stupid and offensive things.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...

Donald Trump: 
The Dung Beetle of Democracy.  

So back on July 1st,  was trending on Twitter so I took the opportunity to ask Donald Trump some pertinent questions relating to his campaign and his vision for America's future.

  1. Does your hairpiece whisper shit in your ear or does it communicate with you telepathically?
  2. Quick! Name all your ex-wives in 10 seconds! GO!
  3. Do you know the way to San Jose? No, Mr. Trump, it's not in Mexico.
  4. Can I have a cookie? 
  5. How about now?
  6. Is there a big TRUMP logo tattooed on your ass? No, don't show us, just answer the question.
  7. If elected President, would you rename Mount Rushmore as "Trump Rushmore" or "Mount Trumpmore"?
  8. Is it OK if we let rapists in from Canada instead?
  9. Does this look infected to you?
  10. Can I have a cookie now?
OK, that's all I have for now.  Remember, watching Donald Trump is a lot of fun to watch. It will be interesting to see how far he carries this thing. But for the love of God, please, please do not actually vote for him.

And be good to one another. 

MUSICALS AWAY! Mamma Mia! AND Moulin Rouge!

It was a MUSICALS weekend at the Fortress of Ineptitude as the family gathered to watch two movie musicals this weekend. Both movies were ...
