Vote for Trump?

August 11, 2016

Consternation among loyal Republicans was ratched up a notch when GOP candidate for President of the United States suggested that, if Hillary Clinton is elected, there is nothing that can be done about it–except if Second Amendment advocates use their weapons.

Having seen that clip of Trump’s remarks several times there is little that can be done except admit that Trump misspoke. He really doesn’t think assassination is good public policy, but he couldn’t resist asking “What are guns for?”

There have been a series of instances when Trump’s comments were “off” by a mile:

The Muslim parents who lost a son

The Indiana judge of Mexican descent

Referring to parts of Megyn Kelly that were bleeding

Casting aspersion on the character of illegal immigrants from Mexico.

And there were times during his campaign when his actions caused us to ask whether he knows what he is doing.

Leaving his campaign to attend the opening of a Trump golf facility in Scotland,

Putting together a team of economic advisors consisting almost entirely of businessmen

Trump’s unwillingness to study public policy issues

Inability to cultivate advisors on whom he relies for advice

Not staffing his Presidential campaign

Not building a “ground game” in states he must win.

Trump had to know that he was compelled to create his own Party infrastructure. Instead, he blithely assumed that he could rely on the Republican National Committee and Reince Priebus.

In other words, though Trump may be well psychologically, it is clear that he is in something well over his head and he is quite simply–careless.
