Apparently off his meds and in dire need of a nap, cranky old Donald Trump took the stage at a Huntsville, Alabama, auditorium Friday night and rambled on about everything in general and nothing in particular for an hour and 20 minutes.
He ranted against Kim Jong Un, who he called “the little rocket man”. That should go along way towards dousing the already lit fuse quickly burning its way toward an explosive Armageddon.
Hey made it perfectly clear to his mostly pale-skinned crowd that he had a little patience for dark-skinned athletes who “take a knee” instead of standing up straight and Tom Brady tall during the playing of our national anthem during NFL football games.
Without specifically mentioning him by name, Trump referred to former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a “son of a bitch.” This was much stronger language than he used against someone not dark-skinned or accused of ramming his car into a crowd of protesters is Charlottesville, Virginia, killing a woman. I guess we are left to believe neo-Nazis, some good people there; while dark-skinned NFL athletes who do not show ritualistic respect for the totems of the nation that oppressed them are “sons of bitches.”
As if to prove Trump’s followers will swallow anything Trump squeezes onto their plates, the President explained why his much-vaunted border wall now needs to be “see through.”
Trump was allegedly in Huntsville to boost the candidacy of Sen. Luther Strange, in advance of Tuesdays Republican primary to see who will permanently replace Attorney General Jeff sessions as the Senator from Alabama. Yet Trump made it perfectly clear that he’s OK with Alabama voters choosing Judge Roy Moore, hero of the American Taliban, in the alternative. With friends like Trump, who needs enemas?
The crowd hooted their appreciation as Trump said he would “handle” the “little rocket man” who is not known for taking insults lightly and may use the occasion of Trump’s latest insults to detonate a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific ocean.
This speech was pure Trump. No teleprompters. Ignoring the advice of advisors. Ranting, raving, spittle flying everywhere, just like his supporters wanted to hear.
Meanwhile, the non-insane people of America and the world cringe in horror at the thought of what will happen next.
