Trump’s Dictator Love


Donald Trump had high praise for Saddam Hussein yesterday in saying the man was great at killing terrorists. Apparently he loves the way Saddam’s Iraq lacked our judicial process. It’s not the first time he’s praised Saddam, or other dictators.

He bragged about how he’d get along with Russian president Vladimir Putin after there were reports that Putin said Trump was “brilliant.” Trump loves a compliment because he’s insecure. Putin later denied ever using the word “brilliant.”

Trump admired North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for killing his uncle, asserting his control, and ignoring the hair haters. He said “This guy doesn’t play games. And we can’t play games with him.” He would probably get along great with South Park’s Eric Cartman who also wants people to “respect his authority.”

Trump said Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad should get an A in leadership. You know, that guy who like Saddam gassed his own people. Lovely!

He kinda likes Gaddafi, who was deposed and killed in Libya. Trump said he was an effective leader.

He likes guys like that. Trump was quoted saying “”We would be so much better off if Gaddafi were in charge right now. If these politicians went to the beach and didn’t do a thing and we had Saddam Hussein and if we had Gaddafi in charge, instead of having terrorism all over the place.”

Are you starting to see a pattern here? Trump has also talked about how the people need to appreciate him to the point that they build him a giant statue. What’s next? Palaces and airports named after him? Oh wait…he already names everything after himself. He even claims there are products, Trump Wine, Trump Steaks, Trump Water, etc., named after him that don’t even exists anymore.

I’m sure Trump would have gotten along fine with al-Assad, Gaddafi, and Hussein, because they don’t like Jews either.

Trump has spent the week praising dictators, sending out dog whistles to white supremacists, and searching for his vice presidential running mate. He’s done a better job with the first two. The racists love him. Potential running mates, not so much.

Tennessee senator Bob Corker said no thanks. Iowa senator Joni Ernst said nada. Newt Gingrich is giving signs that he’s not interested. In the past several other Republicans have said no, some vehemently, that they would never run with Donald Trump…or even be in the same room with him. Endorsing Trump is killing Paul Ryan’s career. Can you imagine the lasting effect it’s going to have on his running mate?

Trump is going to have to pick someone really stupid to be his veep pick, which shouldn’t be a problem in today’s GOP. This person will have to believe this is a great career move and that the ticket can actually win. Does Chris Christie even believe Trump can win? But in the stupid department, he’s still got Ben Carson and Sarah Palin.

I really want Sarah Palin. We should tell Trump he’s not brave enough to pick Palin. That’ll do it.

Saddam wouldn’t take that crap.
