Donald Trump attacked Jeb Bush again today:
2016 Republican frontrunner Donald Trump told Breitbart News that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush should be speaking English—not the Spanish he spoke to attack Trump in Miami this week—on the campaign trail....

“I like Jeb,” Trump said. “He’s a nice man. But he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States.”

“El hombre no es conservador,” Bush said in Spanish of Trump in Miami, according to the Tampa Bay Times. That means, according to that newspaper, that Bush is saying of Trump: “The man is not conservative." ...
If Trump really believes that, shouldn't his family set an example for the rest of us by speaking English exclusively? After all, he's married two immigrants, including his current wife, the Slovenian-born Melania Knauss Trump -- and, as she told People in 2009, their son has been raised to be trilingual:
While attending the MET Gala event, Donald Trump and his wife Melania Knauss Trump stopped to talk to reporters and the proud mama couldn’t help but gush about her “delicious” little boy. “He’s very special, he talks nonstop,” she says.

“He talks three languages. He speaks my language -- Slovenian -- English and French.”
In 2011, on CNN's Joy Behar Show, Mrs. Trump said he was still displaying split language loyalties:
BEHAR: What's the language?

TRUMP: Slovenian.

BEHAR: Slovenian.

TRUMP: And Baron speaks two languages, completely perfect --

BEHAR: He does?

TRUMP: He goes from one thing to another.

BEHAR: What languages?

TRUMP: Slovenian, English.

BEHAR: Really.

TRUMP: And he talks with my parents in Slovenian....
Why isn't Donald Trump raising a True Patriot who exclusively speaks English? Why do the Trumps hate America?


Here's one more nugget of information about Barron Trump, which I'm posting here even though it has nothing to do with language. It's from the New York Daily News in 2013:
Donald and Melania Trump’s 7-year-old son uses caviar moisturizer every night

... When it comes to skin care, Donald Trump's son Barron with wife Melania Trump is surely living in the lap of luxury.

The 7-year-old uses his mother's Caviar Complex C6 moisturizer from her newly released beauty line every night after he takes a bath.

"It smells very, very fresh," said the current Mrs. Trump....
Wait, there's more.
"I put it on him from head to toe. He likes it!"

This is about a politician on the hustings, not at home.

I have this thought over early coffee of, What if Trump's actually fronting for one of the non-major candidates the owners of the GOP would like to win, someone they could both control and who might have a decent shot at beating HRC, but would need to spend most of the next 6-8 months presenting as a sane person and therefore unable to game big primary voter support, like, say, Kasich?

Or, what if Trump's on some late in life bucket list hero mission of being able to buy a hour on all the big network and cable tv political shows in March or April, going up before the world, and laying out the entire con, in particular that part of his project was to force the GOP to confront how racist they really are, or to get as many voters as possible to abandon the GOP, or whatever it takes to KILL that racist zombie undead obscenity of a politial party?

Gawd, I hope his middle name is "Von." That would make him perfect.

The Trump phenomenon is incomprehensible except in the context of celebrity worship. No question he's pushing all the right buttons with his rhetoric, but his real superpower is celebrity and I bet a large % of his fans believe his celebrity will carry the day against Hillary.

Having your mother spread caviar cream all over your body when you're 7 won't cause any issues later...
No, none whatsoever.

All I can see is the scene in Excalibur when Morgana is anointing the young Mordred. That ended well for everyone, now didn't it.

Bragging about caviar body moisturizer beats "Let them eat cake." Only Melania Trump really said it.
