Aboard a doomed dirigible

"I'll fight them off like Reagan did," Mr. Trump did not add. Image via West Wing Reports.
Trump on the Japanese menace:
“Ben is a nice man, but when you’re negotiating against China and you’re negotiating against these Japanese guys that are going to come against you in waves, and they think we’re all a bunch of jerks because our leaders are so stupid and so incompetent and so inept, we need people that are really smart, that have tremendous deal-making skills and that have great, great energy.”
In waves? He's expecting, as president, to be confronted by Japanese guys coming against him in waves?

On Friday night, a seasoned party activist compared him to “the bad boy you date over the summer before returning to college.”
Wake up Donald, I think I've got something to say to you
it's late September and I really should be back in school...

No, I'm not doing this. (For those who missed it, my Trump song, "It's On His Hat", is here.)

That's how the Japanese work, you know. They come at you in waves, bayonets fixed, shouting "Banzai" through their buck teeth!

Mock all you will, Trump is all things to all people. He has the dim bulbed patriots wrapped up, & pretty soon the rest of the America-haters will realize he's our only hope of stopping this nation in its tracks.

Classic bully psych assessment of some third party: 'Nice enough, but not exactly the brightest bulb on the Xmas tree'.

The implication being, if the person chooses to go with Trump, they'll think, At least the smart guy won't think of me that way for going with the dumb guy.'

Obviously, even that reasoning is totally flawed, because the type of person who utters classic bully psychs is a manipulative lying asshole who doesn't give a crap for what anyone thinks and is actually really after proving that YOU 'aren't exactly the brightest bulb', simply by conning you this cheaply.

The classic bully pysych is like a universal tool. If you're Werner Von Puttzie, wanting to bully bigtime U.S. military general staff, you say, Einstein was pretty good on theory, but what lame-o peacenick in practice.

Hey! Watch yourselves! Trump is having flashbacks to his island-hopping time during World War 2 when Japanese Soldiers literally came in waves at him and his fellow Marines.

Dishonoring a career military man hardly becomes you Yastreblyansky...
