Four days after the Paris attacks, Donald Trump explained to a crowd in Tennessee that he has an uncanny sense for terrorism, an ability to see it coming.He pointed to the fact that in his book, published in 2000, he described Osama Bin Laden as a “shadowy figure.” His unique ability to identify villains is the reason no one likes to go to movies with him – only a few murders into Friday the 13 he had already divined that the guy in the mask was the bad guy (ironically, though, he took until the end of Zero Dark Thirty to figure that one out).
He explained to the screaming crowd of extreme conservatives and alternative students looking to be ironic, “I predicted terrorism because I can feel it. I can feel it like a good location.” That gut feeling Trump referred to turned out to be indigestion, but his prediction of terror was actualized when he soon after released a deadly gas attack.
Elaborating upon his prediction, Trump continued, “No sensible analyst rejects this possibility.” How bold Trump once was, having the chops to come out and publicly say something that no sensible analyst rejected. Since that strategy failed in the 2000 elections, he’s trying something new this time around: saying exclusively things that every sensible analyst rejects.
For example, sensible people gasped last week when he crudely impersonated the physical disability of a New York Times reporter. The same people have also been taken aback by his campaign-long impersonation of a candidate with severe mental issues. Bigots, egomaniacs, and people who are just huge dicks in general are offended that Trump has carried out such a caricature of them.But Trump isn’t backing down. When the New York Times called his impression “outrageous”, he responded by assailing them in a Twitter rant, saying, “The failing @nytimes” published “Yesterday 3 boring articles, today2!” Shocking, I know – Donald Trump read five articles!
Trump explained to the Tennessee crowd: “It’s about vision, folks. It’s about vision,” and he’s the only presidential candidate with 20/20 hindsight foresight – the unique ability to look back in time and predict things that have already happened.
