"Ever heard of a fire-nado? One photographer in Boise, Idaho caught one on camera on the edge of the Soda Fire.
A fire-nado is a tornado-like spinning column of air and fire that spins up along the front edge of a wild fire. When heat from a wildfire rises, it can begin to spin like a tornado."
In the race for the Republican presidential nomination we have seen tornado Trump upend the GOP clown car, he`s captured the attention of the media, shot to the top of the polls, and rendered his rivals impotent and irrelevant.
Conventional wisdom doesn`t apply to the Teflon Don, a racist or idiotic comment that would doom anybody else`s campaign serves only to improve his already sky-high ratings.
Trump could crap into a sombrero at this next campaign event, use his toupee to wipe his pale-white butt, declare that this is what red-blooded Americans will be eating if we don`t deport every Mexican, and this would be the lead story for weeks, and his ratings would continue to soar.
In Idaho there is a firenado that is wreaking havoc; it`s spinning out of control and setting off new fires. I don`t know what`s a more apt symbol for our dysfunctional democracy, the firenado or Donald Trump?
All I can say is that if Donald Trump is the top candidate in the GOP field, we deserve to be destroyed by a firenado.
