I like Donald Trump.
What I should say is I like the idea of Donald Trump. I've never met the man. I never watched any of his shows on TV. My only experience with him is reading about him second hand.
Will he make a good president? That's kinda a silly question. We're going on eight years of Obama. Before that we had Bush part two, and before that eight years of Whitehouse panty raids. Before that we had Bush part one. There is an entire generation alive right now that has never experienced principled leadership in the Oval Office. Good president? Compared to what? The bar is very low.
Back to the Donald. I think the reason I like him is he is the only person running for office that is telling the truth about anything. On the other hand, maybe he is just playing for the cameras. I don't really know, and neither does anyone else.
Watching the media pounce every time they think he says something that will cause the masses to abandon him was entertaining at first. Now its just sad. Most recently Trump quoted a verse from the bible. Politicians do that from time to time. Trump was talking to an audience at Liberty University which is a nominally Christian college. So I guess throwing in a bible verse was appropriate.
Trump quoted the verse, from memory, correctly. This leads me to believe that he might actually have a passing familiarity with the bible, or someone writing his speeches does. Regardless, when he quoted the verse he also cited it, again correctly. The problem is that instead of saying "Second Corinthians" he said "Two Corinthians".
Yep that's enough to disqualify the man, at least according to the media.
I never knew that the American media was so sensitive about religious matters. I'm glad they took the time and effort to report on this obviously important item.
This using the word "two" instead of "second" is a big deal. I mean that sincerely. I suspect this is going to have major implications in the presidential race. Tomorrow Ben Carson, Mark Rubio, Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz will all start saying "two" instead of "second" and pretend that was their position all along.
