#GOPDebate:  What Trump’s Twitter Tantrum Says About Him as “The Next POTUS”

November 2016. We are counting the days when hopefully America can make a comeback. When we can perhaps have the hope that our great country will once again be great, be proud and unapologetic for the values that make us uniquely American. We want a safer homeland. We want a homeland with a moral compass. We want respect for our military service members. We want class, dignity and humility brought back to office. And, let’s be blunt, we want Obama and Michelle taking up residence somewhere else where they can do less damage!

With all of the above being said, we look to Donald Trump. A savvy businessman. A New Yorker who speaks his mind and does not beat around the bush because frankly, he doesn’t have the time. No one in Manhattan has the time. I have no doubt in my mind that he cares about and respects this country but, let’s be blunt once again-the man not only needs a better hairdo, he needs a whole hell of a lot of finesse.

Many hopefuls received tough questions from the moderators that challenged their positions on everything from foreign policy to social issues. The second round of debates kicked off with a bang out the gate when Fox News’ Megyn Kelly fired this at The Donald:

Kelly, no stranger to calling people out, went on to say that Trump’s derogatory remarks extended far beyond Rosie O’Donnell and noted that Trump once told a contestant on his show, “The Apprentice” that it would be “a pretty picture to see her on her knees.”

Funny, didn’t a Democrat in The White House in the past say that to an intern once upon a time? Doesn’t his wife have something to do with the upcoming election in 2016? I digress….

More flames were fed after the debate last night with regard to the Kelly/Trump exchange:

And this:

And this:

Trump didn’t stop there. He went on to tell BuzzFeed that:

“The questions to me were far tougher, and I — supposedly, according to what everyone’s telling me, I won the debate, according to the call-ins and everything. But the questions to me were not nice, I didn’t think they were appropriate, and I think Megyn behaved very badly personally.”

Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen chimed criticizing Fox News and pollster Frank Luntz:

And Trump fired at Luntz as well:

Trump also disclosed that he had a conversation with Bill Clinton this past spring when he decided to run:

“He called me, we had a nice chat about something, and he’s not happy that I’m running, I can tell you now, because I think he thinks I’m the worst nightmare for Hillary.”

So, is Trump a worst nightmare for Hillary or for the GOP? While Kelly displayed obvious disdain for and perhaps a bit of a bias against Trump, do her actions warrant a (mostly one-sided) flame-throwing, name-calling snit-fight on Twitter? How old are we, anyway? Ben Carson was also challenged by the mediators last night. Look to his Twitter account to see any disparaging remarks about the moderators generated by Carson and you will find nothing.

And what happens when Trump doesn’t make the cut? He’s not promising to endorse the Republican candidate. He’s not promising to not run as an Independent. He’s not making any promises, really. He supported Obama’s campaign in 2008. And now, he’s a Republican? While his statements and frustration on illegal immigration struck a nerve with potential supporters, he shared his in-depth insight on his knowledge of this issue last night. His “proof” that illegals are just criminals coming over the border because “Mexico does not want to deal with them” is his numerous chats with border patrol. Does this statement display a true working knowledge of illegals in the United States when compared to that of Marco Rubio’s observation? The jury’s still out on that one.

Despite all of this, Trump is still rocking the polls. The reason in my opinion? Brutal honesty. Calling a spade a spade. A no-nonsense attitude. But I would venture to caution those who are gung-ho for the man with the killer comb-over is that there is an overwhelming need to be vigilant and truly listen to what he is saying. Yes, the last thing our country needs is an eloquent blow-hard with charisma like Barack Obama and Trump is clearly on the opposite end of the spectrum in this regard. Trump is capitalizing on the fatigue of us as an American people. People are tired of Obama’s Harvard intellectualism and his apologies for us as Americans. Trump makes no apologies and we like that. Yes, the last thing our country needs are false promises. The problem with Trump is that he promises nothing at this point. Not even allegiance to a specific political party. He is a true businessman in the respect that he wants a win and that’s it-even if it ends up being a detriment to an election and a Republican win in 2016. Is he really for the American people then or is he just for himself? You decide.

And, finally, the last thing this country needs is a name-calling bully and Trump showed us that he can play with the best of them who are currently in The White House last night. Haven’t we had enough of the name-calling bullies over the past 7 years? Just saying.

Do you mind if I sit back a little? Because your breath is very bad.
Donald Trump on The Apprentice

Yep. I would say indeed that something reeks up in here.

    I believe that Trump is an Obama plant. If he is elected it will be the death of any Republican being elected for a generation. This the election for POTUS not a reality show. No new ideas just bloviation.

  • Kauf Buch says:


    There were NO policy questions asked of Trump: ONLY PERSONAL ATTACKS…all while Cheb! Boosh got lobbed softballs.

    You may not be a RINO, Lisa, but you’re definitely what Vladimir Lenin called a USEFUL IDIOT.

    Full disclosure: I’m a Cruz fan, though I thought Jindal did well, too.

    I wouldn’t have considered Trump at the beginning. I have been left with utter disdain for most every politician, in fact, most everyone in government. We the people have been fed nothing but lies for so long that none of them are worthy of any trust. We elect them to be our voice based upon actual promises only to be slapped in the face once they have gained their power. It is my belief virtually ALL politicians serve only for their own self-interests and what they can possibly gain. A clear example is the Clintons wealth they have amassed in a very short time. It is the same with many others in Congress and those in higher positions in government. What was once just a concern for wealth has been transformed into literal corruption in every part of government. Nowadays there isn’t even an effort to cover up wrongdoings and it has included the friends of those in government who also have gained tremendously. What is even more outrageous is the total lack of accountability by ANYONE. They ALL just get away with it and there isn’t a single person who has any desire to shake things up and tell it like it is. This is the appeal of someone like Trump. There have always been some who have thought they’re all crooks but this has been transformed to a vast majority and we the people are willing to listen to a person who has no hesitation in stating it as it is. At this point in time that person is Trump.

    Assuming most of our readers on here stand for the same values and concerns for the 2016 Election that we do at VG.

    Full disclosure: Not really a Bush fan. As of right now, my picks are Carson, Cruz, Rubio and Carly. I honestly love Trump’s direct no-nonsense demeanor and down the road, he may surprise the unbelievers.

    Not a big fan of Megyn Kelly or the news media in general and I have been pretty open about that on here but I still think that there are aspects of the debate that we cannot ignore.

    1. Yes, Trump called Rosie O’Donnell a dog. I can’t stand her, either. But the fact is that on the Republican podium, he left himself open for the left to come on in and capitalize on these remarks. I pointed this out in a forum of like-minded individuals (with I am sure, occasionally some trolls.) What I feel we need (and this is just my opinion) for a Republican win in 2016 is credibility, integrity and brains. We need sound arguments and solutions. I realize Trump has enough money and success to not care about how his words come out or who he offends. I AGREE COMPLETELY with him in that we have taken PC to lethal levels of dosage in this country. BUT-his remarks and demeanor are not doing the GOP any favors here. THIS is EXACTLY what the left is attacking and will continue to capitalize on.

    2. He once contributed to Democratic causes. Okay. I was once a liberal idiot in college, too before I grew up and started earning a paycheck. On Thursday evening, he did not promise to remain loyal to the party. His only loyalty is towards HIS win. But who does this sound like? Hint: He is currently in The White House! Hmmm…and let’s go for a bonus round, shall we? He bullies and calls people names when they disagree with him. We all know someone who does this in a more eloquent fashion, of course, because he’s from Harvard and wants every one to know it, but he does it nonetheless. Hint: He is currently in The White House! So, if Trump doesn’t get the nod and runs independently and doesn’t garner enough votes, who ends up in The White House in 2016? I shudder at the thought. And of course, the left KNOWS this.

    So who, really is the “useful idiot” in Communist terms?

    3. As far as not being questioned on policies, I felt that while it could have been worded differently by the moderators, the question of his bankruptcies within his resorts was legit. How did he handle it? How would he handle a country trillions of dollars in debt?

    Other men on the stage got handed tough questions that night. Granted, the lines may not have been perceived as hard-driven as Trump’s, but Trump is a true New Yorker. New Yorkers are tough. Period. They can handle whatever is thrown at them. He’s had to be tough to get where he is and I respect that. But this is not the boardroom or a reality show. This is our country.
