Here are some things that Donald Trump, a Ralph Steadman illustration come to life, who arrived at the Iowa State Fair this weekend by helicopter and who apparently isn’t going away anytime soon, said this weekend.
Pressed on what he’d do if the immigrants in question had nowhere to return to, Trump reiterated: “They have to go.”
“We will work with them. They have to go. Chuck, we either have a country, or we don’t have a country,” he said.
Also, he said that Saudi Arabia should pay the United States for its support and aid. “We defend Saudi Arabia,” Trump said. “We send our ships. We send our planes. Every time there’s a little ruckus, we send those ships and those planes. We get nothing. Why? They’re making a billion a day. We get nothing. And this is the problem with the world.”
How does he tone it down when he’s proud of his outrageous persona, his fiery wee-hours Twitter arrows and campaign “gusto,” and gratified by the way he can survive dissing John McCain and rating Heidi Klum when that would be a death knell for someone like Scott Walker?
“Sometimes I do go a little bit far,” he allowed, adding, after a moment: “Heidi Klum. Sadly, she’s no longer a 10.”
Despite the fact that it relies heavily on a Grumpy Cat reference, Dowd’s column is actually quite good! Though that probably has as much to do with the fact that Trump will say anything to anyone as it does Dowd.
Tiny little guy. Did you see the press release I put out about Rand Paul? Pretty brutal, right? A nasty, nasty guy. I gave him a lot of money for his eye center. I played golf with him. I’m a good golfer. I’ve won 18 club championships. And he’s a golfer and I killed him. I could play him a thousand times and never lose to him.
Anyway! So continues the waking nightmare that is Election 2016.
