When Donald Trump declared his candidacy for President of the United States we expected him to provide comic relief for the electorate, to be a nuisance to the serious contenders, and to walk away after a couple of months to pursue other entertainment and business opportunities.
Not even the most insightful political analysts predicted that he would be leading the polls this late into the game, he`s not just a nuisance and a distraction for his GOP adversaries -- he`s a huge roadblock to their presidential aspirations.
Trump has uttered many outrageous comments that would have derailed the candidacies of conventional politicians, but every new execrable remark has only served to cement his position as the frontrunner.
Trump`s adversaries have been hoping and praying that he would suffer an epic meltdown that would shatter his campaign.
In an epic 95-minute rant to the faithful in Iowa, Trump savaged all his rivals, but spewed must of his venom on Dr. Ben Carson, who is challenging his supremacy in the polls.
Trump mocked Carson`s story of trying to stab a friend when he was a teenager, asking the audience if anyone had a knife so he could demonstrate that a belt buckle wouldn`t stop a knife attack, and asked: How stupid are the people of Iowa? How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?
Even a narcissistic racist blowhard sometimes stumbles onto the truth, and Trump was spot on in his assessment of the good doctor. Carson may be a brilliant neurosurgeon, but he`s an inept campaigner and a flagrant liar. Carson is full of sh**, only a deluded evangelical or a member of his family would believe the unsubstantiated claims in his autobiographies.
In his epic rant Trump crapped on Carson, his other rivals, the media, and the American public for being so stupid as to swallow Carson`s baloney. Trump`s Iowa speech was political theater at its most riveting, and performance art at its most entertaining, it was truly a masterpiece.
Trump`s epic meltdown did not destroy his campaign; he`s still leading in the polls. Trump is a cancer that feeds on the discontent, racism and free-floating angst in the Republican electorate, and perhaps we deserve to see a huge neon Trump Sign in the White House in 2017.
