Should The Trump Children Do An Idiocy Intervention With Donald?
For nearly 30 years, Americans have been forced to watch Donald Trump. We have watched his exploits play out like an 80’s TV soap opera. Unfortunately, it may be time for the Trump children to retire crazy old Donald.
We’ve watched it all. We’ve watched Trump’s bankruptcies, the rise and fall of his casino empire, the divorces, and now his TV show.
Hell, we even put up him slapping his name on everything except toilet paper which is kind of surprising considering the trademark for “Trump” brand toilet paper by the Fort Howard Paper Company expired in 1993 has not been renewed.
Then about two years ago, Trump’s popularity began to wane when people began to realize he was full of bullshit. The ratings for his TV show began to tank.
Somewhere, Trump took a turn into the Twilight Zone of Nuttiness. I’m not talking about Howard Hughes or C. Montgomery Burns plutocrat kind of nutty. I’m talking paranoid right-wing Ted Nugent nuttiness. He embraced the ramblings of “Birther Queen” Orly Taitz, who has made a career out of trying to prove President Obama was born in Kenya.
What was even more baffling was that Trump made Taitz’s crazy theories the centerpiece of his 2012 teaser presidential campaign.
We all know Trump has a fetish for Eastern European women. Orly Taitz also has crazy stories flying around about her bedroom antics. Let’s face it, Trump isn’t that stupid or crazy.
The Trump Children Discover Dad Has Developed An Addiction To Twitter and Youtube
After his teaser presidential run, Trump discovered the wondrous world of Youtube and Twitter. He began posting insane rants almost hourly. Trump’s twitter rants would make even the crankiest seniors at nursing homes around Miami Beach or West Palm Beach envious.
Like last year where Trump takes credit for forcing the White House to release President Obama’s birth certificate. President Obama, the White House, and the Democratic Party had already done at least a dozen times since 2008.
He then makes some insane offer to donate $5 million to a charity if President Obama released his college transcripts, passport applications, etc.
Then there was this Twitter rant calling for revolution on election night when it was announced President Obama won re-election:
Trump Starts Twitter Fights And Sues Comedian Over A Joke
The recess from Trump nuttiness didn’t last long. Last month, he got into a Twitter war with the guys at Deadspin after they tweeted, “@realDonaldTrump Go fuck yourself.” after he made a comment about them breaking the story of the fake death of Manti Te’o fake girlfriend.
He then appears on Stuart Varney’s show on the Fox Business Channel to start fake rumors about how people have approached him about buying the New York Times.
What really showed Trump has gotten off on the last exit to Bizarro World, was yesterday when he filed a $5 million lawsuit against comedian Bill Maher for making a joke on the Tonight Show last month that he wanted to see proof that Trump wasn’t the offspring of his mother mating with an orangutan.
Trump Children Try To Reign in Donald Trump
The New York Daily News reports that prior to the presidential election, Donald, Jr., Eric and Ivanka Trump concerned about how Trump’s behavior was affecting business had already staged one “put a sock in it” intervention.
Unfortunately, another idiocy intervention may be too little too late but it’s worth a try. The only other alternative is to force him into retirement.
Let’s face it, Donald Trump has become an embarrassment not only to America but to American Capitalism. It may be time for him to exit the stage before he is remembered not for his handful of accomplishments but for his lunacy.
What brought on this pattern of lunacy, I have no idea. I’m not a doctor nor am I a psychologist. For all I know, it could be the result of erectile dysfunction. Regardless, it’s time for Trump to retire to West Palm Beach and hang out with other crazy rich old white people swap Merv Griffin stories.
Besides, with Florida’s depressed property values due to the financial crisis, there are lots of great deals to be had on waterfront mansions places like Boca Raton and West Palm Beach. So when Trump goes to play golf with his friends, he can brag about what a great deal he got.
