Super Stupid

How will Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump make amends for being such a xenophobic racist? How will he convince people who he referred to as "rapists" to vote for him?

According to Fox News host Neil Cavuto, eating a taco bowl is a good start.

CAVUTO: All right. I think they call this an olive branch, or it could be a taco bowl, but to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, Donald Trump -- well, enjoying this fine classic Mexican dish in his Trump Tower offices, and reminding folks how much he loves Hispanics.

The idea that a taco bowl is a "classic Mexican dish" may actually be more absurd than the idea that Trump is going to win the hearts and minds of Hispanic voters by eating a grotesque American spinoff, but I suppose they go hand in tiny hand.

    Interesting how concerned Trump is about rapists. When convicted rapist Mike Tyson endorsed him, Trump reveled in it and said he loved “tough guys and they love me”. Real tough for a 230 lb. heavyweight pro fighter to force himself sexually on a 120 lb. young women. I guess Trump only hates rapists if they don’t endorse him. His understanding of tough is as sadly lacking as is his knowledge of how to be president.

    Neil Cavuto thinks eating garbage out of a fried tortilla qualifies as an olive branch. More like a thumb in the eye.

    Either Kevin Drum is right or Donald Trump is running an experiment to see if he can get zero votes from Latinos. I don’t see a third alternative.

    And Cavuto shows he’s just as big a jackass as Drumph.

    Up next, his promotion of the “authentic” Gordita.

    I have to admit I have a twisted curiosity of what life would be like with Drumpf as POTUS but my fear of what it would be like is far, far greater.

    Ah. The short, stubby fingered one strikes again. Why would the rest of the world not absolutely love us.

      Sometimes, I wonder if the rest of the world doesn’t look at American politics like people look at a homeless person on the street. You see it and say “Well, whatever problems we may have at least we’re not like that.”
