If there is one place walking insult machine Donald Trump knows he can get a group of media personalities to slob his knob, it is the comfy confines of the Fox & Friends studio. The morning after he doxxed fellow Republican Presidential hopeful Lindsey Graham by publicly revealing his private cell phone number, The Donald appeared for his one billionth interview on the program. And his sycophants performed admirably as co-host Steve Doocy told Trump that he reminded him of a Navy SEAL due to the fact that he doesn’t back down from a fight.
Yep, you read that right. Silly grin maker Doocy compared a man who received five deferments during the Vietnam War to specially trained military personnel. The Dooce decided that the man who said he doesn’t like POWs because they were captured was just like the guys who killed Osama Bin Laden. OK then.
How did Doocy get to that point on Wednesday morning? It didn’t take long, Roughly one minute into their conversation, Trump pointed out that he was not sorry that he acted like a mean rich girl by exposing Graham’s digits, saying Graham is a loser who nobody likes and has no chance of getting the GOP nomination. Doocy, totally in awe of the awesomeness that is the tough-talking draft dodger Trump, then added the following:
“It started with John McCain last week, referred to a big crowd you had out in Phoenix as ‘crazies’. Then yesterday you’ve got Lindsey Graham, who you used that inappropriate word about you. You know what? As somebody said to me yesterday, Donald Trump is like a Navy SEAL; he never backs down when he’s in a fight.”
You know, you can’t make this kind of shit up, even if you tried. It is kind of amazing.
Trump’s whole campaign feels like long-form performance art. Most would have figured the dance would have ended by now, but he is totally committed to his piece, and there is no telling how long this will last. Every time it feels like we are getting to the climax of his performance, he puts his hand under his ass, shits in it, and throws it against the wall, keeping us all enthralled for at least another 24 hours.
