Really? 9.30.16 – Biden Finds Trump Dumber than Palin and some other stuff.

in Election 2016, Politics, Really?

Joe Biden said of Donald Trump’s debate performance “I’ve never seen anybody who knew as few facts.” Consider that this is a man who debated Sarah Palin.

Fox contributor A. B. Stoddard makes an incisive point. While Trump complains about the media’s fairness and sources, he doesn’t take the next step. “He’ll rail against the reporter or the story, but he’ll never ask for corrections and dispute any facts as untrue.”

***********************************************

The GOP had to admit that President Obama was right about something. He had veto’ed a bill that allowed Americans to sue the Saudi Arabian government in American courts over 9/11. Obama warned that it set a precedent that put American soldiers in jeopardy abroad.

Congress (both parties) paying attention to politics, not good sense, overrode the veto. But in the cold light of day GOP leaders (who had introduced the stupidity in the first place) admitted they were open to rewriting the bill. Then they went home.

Donald Trump has lost his mind. Hillary Clinton called him unhinged. His fellow Republicans doubt his sanity. In the early hours, he provided another example of his lunacy. Prolonging his assault on the ex-Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, he  tweeted a demand that his followers check out her ‘sex tape’.

His handlers have tried to keep him ‘on message’. But only Trump can think that referring to sex tapes (fake, by the way) is presidential. He tried to spin his grade-school behavior. “For those few people knocking me for tweeting at three o’clock in the morning, at least you know I will be there, awake, to answer the call!”

But insanity is insanity even if it’s awake 24/7.

*********************************************

We all know that politicians spin, obfuscate, prevaricate – and over the years the media has chided them with euphemistic language. But Trump’s disregard for the truth is so blatant that the New York Times accused him of “outright lies“.

Politico put to rest the conservative meme that Hillary is somehow worse than Trump. “Trump’s mishandling of facts and propensity for exaggeration so greatly exceed Clinton’s as to make the comparison almost ludicrous.”

The Washington Post outlined one week of Trump’s “dubious statements in ‘alternative universe’”. The Los Angeles Times published an article headlined: “Scope of Trump’s falsehoods unprecedented for a modern presidential candidate.”
