It's always difficult to decide whether a candidate should bear any responsibility for the actions of their supporters. A large and diverse nation is bound to contain a fair share of deranged people who have a right to express their political opinions without sullying the politicians they support.
Donald Trump, however, is no mere supporter of Mitt Romney. Since endorsing Romney in February, Trump has recorded more than 30 robocalls and participated in more than 50 radio interviews. An upcoming birthday fundraiser in honor of Ann Romney will be held at a sold-out Trump Tower. As the adage goes, when you lie down with whatever animal lives atop Trump's head, don't be surprised when you wake up with fleas.
The latest Trump imbroglio began when he – admirably! – reversed Miss Universe Canada's decision to kick contestant Jenna Talackova out of the pageant for being a transgender woman, but not before offering to introduce the world to Little Donald…
Donald Trump is confident … attorney Gloria Allred would be blown away by his man junk. The Donald called in to TMZ Live moments ago, claiming, "I think Gloria would be very very impressed with [my penis]."
Donald's genitals became a topic of contention earlier today during Gloria's news conference with transgender beauty queen Jenna Talackova — when Gloria said, Jenna "didn't ask Mr. Trump to prove he's a naturally born man, or see photos of his birth, or to view his anatomy…It made no difference to her." [...]
Donald also said he wouldn't apologize for disqualifying Jenna last week from the Miss Universe pageant on the basis of her birth gender — even though he later reversed his position — and added, he "couldn't care less" if Jenna even competes.
I can somewhat understand the confusion on Trump's part. When he's goes around claiming vaccines cause autism, lots of people mutter "what a dick."
But bro, they're not saying what you think they're saying. And though Gloria Allred has done well for herself, she doesn't have Romney money; I doubt she can easily afford the discretionary expense of an electron microscope and microtweezers needed for this procedure.
