In the last two weeks, Donald Trump has caused many of the country’s jaws to unhinge in disbelief (including Glenn Beck‘s).
It’s entirely possible that he’s just trying to get some attention for the newest season of the Apprentice.
However, the combination of embarrassing conversations about Barack Obama‘s birth certificate, the idiotic gaffe regarding his own birth documents, and many of Trump’s views on international politics are so inane, we have to wonder if there’s any mercury in his toupee glue.
As it turns out Trump was just warming up on March 17 during his interview on Good Morning America:
'He grew up and nobody knew him. You know? When you interview people, if ever I got the nomination, if I ever decide to run, you may go back and interview people from my kindergarten. They'll remember me. Nobody ever comes forward. Nobody knows who he his until later in his life. It's very strange. The whole thing is very strange.'
Then on March 21 he told Fox News that he 'has more of a track record than anyone in the Republican presidential field when it comes to dealing with foreign leaders and dignitaries.'
Specifically, Muammar Qaddafi:
'I rented him a piece of land. He paid me more for one night than the land was worth for two years, and then I didn't let him use the land. That's what we should be doing. I don't want to use the word 'screwed', but I screwed him.'
Less than a week later on the View, he blurted out his most direct attack on Barack Obama:
'Why doesn't he show his birth certificate? There's something on that birth certificate that he doesn't like.'
Then on Fox and Friends this past Monday, Trump said he 'was insulted' by Whoopi Goldberg's suggestion this birther thing is about race and moreover 'why can't Obama produce a birth certificate.'
'He' spent millions of dollars trying to get away from this issue...I'm starting to wonder myself whether he was born in this country.'
Then on Wednesday he was a guest on Laura Ingraham's show, where he said that Obama perhaps has a birth certificate, but 'there is something on that birth certificate -- maybe religion, maybe it says he's a Muslim, I don't know. Maybe he doesn't want that. Or, he may not have one.'
As though reaching the climax of a triumphant, idiotic symphony, Trump's themes crescendoed to the unbelievable on Thursday when he told Bill O'Reilly that America should stay in Iraq so we could 'keep the oil,' and then claimed that Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab League has ordered the United States to attack Libya.
But then Trump sang his highest note:
'Our weak President, that kisses everybody's arse, is in more wars than I have ever seen. Now he's in Libya, he's in Afghanistan, he's in Iraq. Nobody respects us.'
