George Will's Inverse Law of Politics, or Why Donald Trump is a Bloviating Ignoramus


I'm not a Donald Trump fan. In my opinion he's pure flim-flam. So imagine how delighted I was to hear that  George Will called Trump "a bloviating ignoramus".    Will's candor was refreshing. And spot-on.

The forum for Will's erudite verbal ballistic missile was this past Sunday on This Week on ABC. Will , in typical form, was pontificating on the political scene. In the present instance, it concerned  Trump's appearance with Mitt Romney at an upcoming fundraiser in Vegas. "I do not understand the cost-benefit here. The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me. Donald Trump is evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low, and you can still intrude into American politics."

Trump's intrusion into American politics has become an absolutely buffoonish  carnival act.  For a while ---as  a publicity stunt--- he toyed around  in the media with the fatuous idea of   running for president. But by far his most moronic mantra has been--- and pathetically still is--- harping on the birther issue.  Most sane Republicans consider this a quacksalver non-starter.  Even the Romney team promptly distanced the  candidate from such a trumped-up sophomoric polemic.

So why dignify the rants of such a "bloviating ignoramus"?   Romney, let's  see some Will-power.  Here is a good time for you to draw a line in the sand and stand on principle.  If you only had any.

  • In all the many annoying years in which Trump's presence has been in the media, there is only ONE small shard of time in which he ever made any sense at all. He said: "Everything I do is just what you d until you die..." After that, not a single comment to y knowledge ever worth airing. But as they say -- money-talks

  • In reply to Jack Spatafora:

    It is true, Jack. Money talks. But in Trump's case, it doesn't make a lot of sense.
