Be careful what you ask for.
USA today reports that
Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for her comment that he has become the Islamic State’s “best recruiter,” her campaign said Monday.
“Hell no,” said Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon. “Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists.”
Trump had said he would “demand” an apology from Clinton for her claim about the Islamic State, telling NBC’s TODAY show. “She lies about emails, she lies about Whitewater, she lies about everything. She will be a disaster about everything as president of the United States.”
Trump has called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States until the government gets a better handle on the terrorist threat.
During Saturday’s Democratic debate, Clinton said the U.S. needs to make sure that “the really discriminatory messages that Trump is sending around the world don’t fall on receptive ears. He is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter. They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.”
While counter-terrorism analysts say the Islamic State could use Trump’s comments to support their claim that the West is waging war on Islam, fact-checkers say there is no evidence of any ISIS videos featuring the Republican front-runner.
In response, as he always does, Trump had a not-so-subtle response for the “Queen of Mean”, per The Washington Post,
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Donald Trump used vulgar language as he attacked Hillary Clinton during a rally on Monday night, saying her use of the restroom at the last Democratic debate was “too disgusting” to talk about and that in 2008 she got “schlonged” by Barack Obama when he defeated her in the Democratic primary.
Standing before a crowd of 7,500, Trump recounted how Clinton was seconds late to the Democratic debate stage on Saturday night following a commercial break. Trump asked the crowd four times where Clinton had gone.
“I know where she went — it’s disgusting, I don’t want to talk about it,” Trump said, screwing up his face, as the crowd laughed and cheered. “No, it’s too disgusting. Don’t say it, it’s disgusting.”
Later in the night, Trump told the crowd that he could not picture Clinton as president because she never wins at anything. He then brought up the 2008 Democratic primary, which Clinton lost to Barack Obama.
“She was favored to win, and she got schlo**ed,” Trump said, turning a vulgar noun for a large penis into a verb.
Trump has repeatedly faced criticism for the language that he uses to describe women, including his female rivals. During the first GOP debate in August, Megyn Kelly of Fox News brought up some of Trump’s more controversial comments and asked him: “Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president, and how will you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton, who was likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?”
Trump has called that question unfair and launched a vicious attack against Kelly. During a CNN interview after the debate, Trump said of Kelly: “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.” Trump later said he meant to say “ears,” but many assumed he was saying that Kelly was menstruating.
This isn’t the first time Trump has attacked Clinton using phrases that some of her supporters have labeled as sexist. In recent weeks, he has repeatedly commented on her pantsuits, said she lacks the “stamina” and “strength” needed for the presidency, and accused her of sleeping too much. Clinton is 68, and Trump is 69.
This latest attack seems to be in response to a comment Clinton made about Trump during the Saturday night debate: She said that the Islamic State terrorist group has used video of Trump’s controversial comments on Muslims to recruit new members, a claim that has drawn questions and skepticism from fact-checkers. Trump has demanded an apology, which Clinton has refused to give.
“She’s terrible,” Trump said during the rally. He then impersonated Clinton’s comments at the debate, using a rather snotty voice: “Donald Trump is on video, and ISIS is using him on the video to recruit.”
“And it turned out to be a lie — she’s a liar!” Trump said to roaring cheers. “And the last person she wants to run against is me.”
Clinton was not the only woman mentioned on Monday night. Trump also said that Caroline Kennedy is too “nice” to be the ambassador to Japan and is no match for their “brutal, brilliant” negotiators. And he questioned why Time picked German Chancellor Angela Merkel as its “Person of the Year” instead of him.
“They gave it to a woman who has not done the right thing for Germany,” Trump said, as the crowd booed Merkel. “Nice woman. I like her, I like her. I better like her — I may have to deal with her. Look, hey, Putin likes me, I want her to like me, too.”
Trump used that reference to Putin as an opportunity to chide the Russian dictator for allegedly killing journalists.
“I hate some of these people, but I would never kill them,” Trump said of the journalists who cover him. “I would never kill them. I would never kill them… I would never kill them, but I do hate them. And some of them are such lying, disgusting people.”
More than a dozen times, Trump was interrupted by protesters, including one who called him a “bigot.” Late in the rally, a woman began screaming at Trump.
“Yes, darling? Yes?” Trump said to the woman, who was quickly escorted out. “Well, she doesn’t sound very tough. That’s a very weak voice. Go a little louder, we can’t hear you, darling. Wow.”
Well, there’s a word that you don’t hear everyday during a Presidential campaign.
Both the Internet and the Main Stream Media will be buzzing , once again today, at what “The Donald” said last night.
…And, that is exactly what he wanted to happen, when he said that little vulgarity.
Their reaction will be predictable.
With sputtering tongue, Liberal Pundits and Politicians alike, today will declare,
Why…why…you can’t talk about the Former Secretary of State that way! Why, she’s a lady!
That’s no lady. That’s Hillary.
The Main Stream Media have become victims of their own sensationalism…used against them.
Why do I believe that Donald J. Trump is still the frontrunner among all the Republican Presidential Candidates?
This brash, unabashedly American, business entrepreneur and quintessential showman has dominated the media for the past several years.
The popularity of his reality program on NBC and the catch phrase that came leaping out from it, “You’re fired!”, spread across America like wildfire.
Now, his Presidential Campaign continues to do the same.
It is not just his flamboyance that has caught the eye of Americans.
The fact is, after almost two terms of an Administration taking the great country in the world on a scenic tour of the Highway to Hell, Donald Trump is the only Republican Candidate shouting, “Hit the brakes, you idiots!”
Trump’s straightforwardness has struck a chord in the hearts of average Americans, tired of the wussification of America, being so relentlessly pushed by both modern political parties.
This is what I don’t understand about the Republican Establishment, especially after the gargage that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and the rest of them just pulled on Republican Voters with the passage of the horrible Omnibus BIll:
They run around telling everybody how Conservative they are, when in reality, they actually hold the same beliefs as Liberal Democrats.
Ronald Reagan gave a famous stump speech about the fact that the Republican Party at one time, needed “bold colors, not pale pastels”.
From what I’m seeing out of a lot of the Republicans right now, they’re not even presenting Americans with pale pastels.
…Except for Donald Trump.
They are showing their color to be Liberal Blue, while they claim to be Conservative Red.
It is almost as if they believe that the Political Tsunami, which resulted in Republicans holding both Houses of Congress, came about because they made themselves look like Democrats.
They need to come down off of Capitol Hill every now and then.
And, visit Realityville.
Average Americans, like you and me, living from paycheck to paycheck in America’s Heartland, do not need another Democratic Party.
If we wanted to continue to put up with their Liberal Stupidity, we would have left all of them in office.
Instead, last November, we showed them the door.
If Jeb Bush and the rest of the Vichy Republicans actually believe that they will win over the Mexican vote, or the rest of the Hispanic Vote, if by then those who are now illegal are allowed to vote, in 2016, then I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell them.
The overwhelming majority of average Americans want Conservatives whose blood runs red, not Liberal squishes, who have more in common with the Democrats in the Northeast Corridor, than they do with average Americans in the Heartland.
If the Republican establishment does not come to that realization very soon, they will go down to defeat again in 2016.
They will never achieve victory by trying to push the Jello of “Liberal Moderation” up a hill.
In summation, the American people are tired of Political Correctness and anti-American political expediencies being forced down our throats by both political parties and trumpeted by their lackeys in the Main Stream Media.
Donald Trump, for all of his brashness and braggadocio, is a breath of free air and, quite frankly, an anomaly. He’s not a professional politician. He is a businessman who wants to become a public servant.
Now, where did I hear that before?
That’s the way the Founding Fathers envisioned our system of government, led by citizens, who served their term s as public servants…AND THEN WENT HOME.
But, I digress…
You know what tickles me the most about “The Donald”?
He reminds me of one of my favorite movie characters.
He actually has a backbone.
Just remember what ol’ Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol’ storm right square in the eye and he says, “Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it.” – Jack Burton, Truck Driver (Kurt Russell) “Big Trouble in Little China”
…and that, boys and girls, despite his vulgarity last night, is still a refreshing change.
(And, it makes for great blogging material. …I’m just sayin’.)
Until He Comes,
