Trump And His Cast Of Clown Supporters
While Hillary Clinton is beating him in polls here, it looks like Donald Trump is bringing his Insult Every Voting Group In America Tour back to the Sunshine State this month.
Because details are still being worked out, I have questions.
Will Pam Bondi, his faithful campaign prop servant, "accidental Trump Foundation donation" recipient, and Trump University "What Me Worry?" fixer be appearing with him as always? Or will she suddenly have to do her hair? My money's on "all in" because she has no shame, and it's not like she's too busy doing her job looking out for the interests of Floridians or anything.
Will his faithful fan Rick Scott appear with him as per usual? After all, Scott's been with him from the get-go. He likes him so much he's even chairing a Super PAC for him, although it's not doing so well. (Go figure.) I'm guessing that's also an affirmative, because there's nothing Scott likes more than a good photo-op, unless you count blind trust investments in projects almost certain to pollute Florida and kill the environment.
And hey, what about Marco Rubio? After all, "Little Marco" is standing with Trump in spite of being humiliated by him during the primaries. Trump continued mocking him and his bottled water "drinking habit" at another event in Florida even after he was no longer a threat* to him and had dropped out. Even now as we discover that Trump allegedly violated the Cuba embargo, an issue that is supposedly so near and dear to his heart, Rubio says "Hey, no big whoop! Who cares?"
*Rubio was never an electoral threat to Trump, or any other GOP presidential candidate for that matter, especially in his home state.
What about the rest of the Republican field in Florida? Any takers? Anyone willing to stand at the podium at a Trump resort somewhere between the Trump steaks and the Trump wine bottles and proudly say "I'm with deplorable?"
Because they all support him as President, even after he: called Mexicans drug dealers and rapists, mocked the disabled, mocked Hillary Clinton's pneumonia, refused to pay workers, refused to rent to black people, called for a Muslim ban, lied, threatens to sue media outlets and calls for changing libel laws over what he deems "unfair" coverage of actual facts, evades taxes, lied, held a bogus fundraiser for veterans in order to chicken out of a debate and then didn't give them the donations raised until he got caught, said veterans of multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan who suffer PTSD when they return are "weak," lied some more, makes sexist insults to women regularly and fat shames others, claimed he was against the Iraq war (he wasn't), claims debates and the elections are rigged against him, operates a Foundation that was never registered, uses said Foundation as a vehicle to buy things for himself while giving almost nothing to charity himself, lied about his previous lies, praises Putin, becomes the first nominee for President to refuse to release his taxes in the history of presidential nominees releasing their taxes and apparently doesn't pay any, refused to denounce the support of David Duke and white supremacists everywhere, once said if Ivanka weren't his daughter, perhaps he'd be dating her, took to twitter at three in the morning calling on his supporters to look for a sex tape that doesn't exist, and on and on and on, because there isn't enough time to list them all. Not if I plan on watching tonight's debate between his chosen VP candidate, a man who practically wrote the script for the GOP war on women and a leader in the war against the LGBT community, and an actual feeling human being who does countless good work, Sen. Tim Kaine.
Who among the proud "Infowars conspiracy theory" tweeting Florida GOP plan to stand proudly beside the man who is a poster boy for everything the Republican Party claims they've stood against all these years?
Any takers? Hello? Don't be shy!
