I agree with David Shuster of Current TV. It's time we told those who honor and respect the spiteful,vainglorious pronouncements of Donald Trump: We're mad as hell and we've had enough. It's time to pull the rug out from under this disgusting schlockmeister. Enough of tolerating his flamboyantly fatuous grandstanding. He's pure humbug. A cultural lesion.
I recently read one ChicagoNow blogger who says he is entertained by Trump's outlandish antics and asinine opinions. I'm afraid too many people are and have taken him seriously. Like Mitt Romney who accepted Trump's endorsement. George Will had it right when he called Trump a bloviating idiot.
News outlets continue to use him allegedly to attract an audience. Commercial interests contract him to boost their sales. But it's time we turn off these monetary spigots that only seem to validate this shamelessly self-promoting purveyor of drek.
Trump may have irremediably destroyed his brand by spearheading the irrational, malicious birther movement throughout the presidential campaign. Moreover, when Obama won, Trump immediately tweeted then erased disturbing messages about a "revolution". How irresponsible, pathetic, and repulsive!
So it is time we let the media know that Trump is an unwelcome guest in our homes, a liablility, not an asset, and a 24-carat jerk. NBC, ABC, CBS and other outlets, stop treating Trump as if he is an oracle of wisdom, a deep thinker who has vital insights to add to the public discourse. Macy's, jettison this phony who preaches patriotism and has on the racks in your stores a line of clothes made in the sweatshops of China.
He's merited the status of pariah. Unless and until he cleans up his act and undergoes a transformation into a decent, compassionate, intelligent member of the human race.
Yes, it's time we lay down the gauntlet to NBC, Macy's, and any other entity in our society, commercial or otherwise, and inform them that such a self-serving manipulative huckster as Trump is not what America is or wants. Now and forever.
