Forcing To Game In A No Trump Hand.

JLL considers Donald Trump to be a 21st century Tom Thumb.I’m not sure why.He certainly violates JLL’s principle of not hurting with words.There is something pre-adolescent in the nature of the name calling he engages in.Nevertheless his surly, childish onslaughts have catapulted him to the front of a Republican pack of 16.There is something that resonates with a tea party base and that is in part defiance and rudeness.Let’s face it, this ugliness is part of all of us. More condemnable than the Donald are the sanctimonious folks who use weasel words and hypocrisy to hide selfishness,bigotry and greed.However,spontaneous bad judgment is unelectable and so “the Grand Old Party” will have to force the game to No Trump bidding,using expendables like Romney and Perry to do the dirty work. Maybe Trump is a synthesis of Tom Thumb.Penrod,Caliban and all of the guys in Lord of the flies.



  1. I agree with your assessment of Trump, but he is being a bit hypocritical in disparaging other GOP members for their faults. Donald Trump is staking his run for U.S. president in part on a vow to protect American jobs. But this month, one of his companies, the elite Mar-a-Lago Club resort in Florida (my home state), applied to import 70 foreign workers to serve as cooks, wait staff and cleaners. I guess he has decided to hire some of those “murderers and rapists” after all. Maybe he could hire them to help build the wall when they are done at the club. Will there be any other “executive orders” Mr. Trump? Uh-oh, I think I just got fired!

    1. You definitely qualify for firing! One has to wonder about the extent of the damage that the private(Citizens United) PACs can do via misinformation and character assassination. Maybe the assault on Donald will inspire him to lead a third party”back to the future”movement that will turn back the rapists and unneeded workers while smashing Iran from behind the wall of a Trump built Jericho !
