He Tries So Hard
I'm not wondering where Trump gets his ideas. It seems obvious these "position statements" are the products of Policy Formulation By Lynch Mob. You do a quick little poll or (more likely) a focus group of "regular people", and you get ideas that reflect the shallowest thinking, fueled by the darkest fears of the biggest paranoiac in the room at the time. Whoever imagines the worst of all possible worsts holds sway, and drives the discussion.
I'm only wondering why it seems like Lil Donny of the Mega-Brain just runs with it every time. In this latest instance, I have great difficulty believing he truly thinks Killing Your Way To Lasting Peace And Security is the way to go. Maybe, but no - prob'ly not.
So I am not moved off of my position that he's looking for his exit. If he can find that one thing that's just too fuckin' much - say the thing that makes enough of us turn away - then he can claim we don't deserve him and blah blah blah, and he can go back to being just another leech on the national nutsack.
In light of the San Bernardino Blood Fest, I can't help but wonder if the Trumpkins will hook anything up between that and the crap Trump always throws into the pile about "beautiful Kate - murdered by an immigrant." It'll be interesting to watch; to see if they fold that into the mix, or if they Etch-A-Sketch it away.
