“How Donald Trump Is Like Liberace”

That’s the actual headline by Daily Beast writer Ciro Scott. Is this piece big news? A deep reflection of the man? No and no. But, it did catch my attention and amuse me

Send the illegal immigrants home. Bar the door to Muslims. Kill the media.

Mucho macho Donald Trump loves to talk tough. Real tough for a guy who deferred his way out of serving his country in the Vietnam War and then made shameful comments about a real American hero, John McCain.

But the truth is the shoot-from-the-puckered-lip billionaire is kind of a girly man, popping his pampered pompadour into angry rallies on his private jet.

Weird dyed hair. Fake white teeth. Heavy faux-tan makeup. A phobia about touching other human hands. Catty comments about women celebrities. Turning bitchy at the least perceived slight. Anal about everything. A bromance with Russian action hero Vladimir Putin.

The guy who gives so many white men a political erection and thrills the thongs off so many white women is a diva in gray flannels.

I’m not going to defend Trump nor agree with Mr. Scott. I really don’t care one way or the other when it comes to Trump. I prefer Cruz first, Rubio second, and Bush 3rd (believe it or not). I do have to wonder how many of the younger folks reading the article are going “who the hell is Liberace?” It’s kinda like talking about Elvis. Even someone of my generation really only has brief memories of him performing. I remember seeing him on TV as someone my grandparents watched, and might pop up on the new or entertainment the parents would watch. Here’s a shot of him I found

Would an outfit like that increase or decrease Trump’s polling?

American males who have been shouted down and silenced by oppressive political correctness have found a hero who is unafraid and unfettered. Someone who can say what they can’t.

I know this is meant to be a dig at Trump and those “American males”, however, this is a primary reason for Trump’s popularity. He’s not afraid to Say Things, things other politicians won’t. He refuses to cower to Democrats and the media, much like so many Republicans. There’s gotta be a reason Trump stays on top even after saying things that would kill other Republicans. Heck, how to account for him having a plan to build a wall, but also to provide amnesty for illegals?

American women of a certain breeding—the sort who used to mob Liberace—love Donald’s celebrity; his delicious digs at Rosie O’Donnell, Heidi Klum, and Megyn Kelly; his tasteless opulence; his girlish opinions on beauty contests and TV romances. Presidential politics is much easier to tune into when it is a flamboyant, drama-a-minute reality show.

True. Let’s remember all the fainting women, and a few men, at Obama rallies in 2008. Let’s remember the grandiose campaign rallies, with all the pomp. Let’s remember the snit fits, like “can I just eat my waffles, guys?” Let’s remember the Greek columns during his acceptance of the Democratic nomination.

The article ends thusly, and the rest should be read, because, despite the comparison to Liberace, it takes a few shots around the horn of candidates

The depressing choice for America could turn out to be: big-mouth girly man or a fast-and-loose-with-the-truth manly girl in the White House.

Yes, that last one is Hillary.

    Funny, McCain wasn’t “a real American hero” 8 years ago.

    The Lefties did everything they could to tear him down.

    Many think the existence of Donald Trump proves that aliens have visited Earth!

    The only person I’ve heard ridicule Senator McCain’s service is Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump.

    On the other hand, Republicans climbed out from under the woodwork to ridicule Vietnam vet, Secretary John Kerry.

    I will take that, McCain was a real dirt bag and there is a considerable amount on the right wing blogs about how bad his service record was and his actions in prison. He is known to have turned on fellow prisoners and cooperated in every way. He also received special treatment.

    Note that McCain’s grandfather was a dirt bag as well. As an admiral in WWII, he and Halsey killed several thousand sailors and sunk and damaged numerous ships as a result of leading their fleets into hurricanes, not once but twice. McCain was court martialed for his actions, Halsey was too popular with the media to receive more than a private slap and a huge mark on his record.

    McCain is clearly a RINO, thus he is one of yours.

    Thanks for confirming my point. John McCain was blasted by the far right, not the Democrats. Donald Trump is just continuing the smears. Remember when the right used to cherish those that had the balls to serve their country? I wish we had more RINOs like McCain, and fewer like Trump and Cruz. What did Trump do during the war?

    The left will gladly accept Senator McCain, thank you.

    a considerable amount on the right wing blogs

    There’s your problem, son! Right-wing blogs are full of fanciful tales and outright lies – just yesterday William linked to a number of them. Why do only right-wing blogs know of McCain’s skullduggery? Why didn’t Obama reveal some of that during the campaign? We know the answer, don’t we?

    Not sure what his grandfather has to do with anything, but can you confirm that Senator McCain’s grandfather was court-martialed (right-wing blogs as a primary source do not count)? Also, can you confirm the number of sailors killed by the storms? More like 800 than “several thousand”, right?

    Many think because Barak Obama was elected twice that the general electorate is stupid.

    Yes, the minority that voted for McCain/Palin and Romney/Ryan.

  8. Jeffery says:

    Trump, Birther-in-Chief to be, said the fact that Rafael (Ted) Cruz was born in Canada was a “very precarious one for Republicans because he’d be running and the courts may take a long time to make a decision. You don’t want to be running and have that kind of thing over your head.”

    Also, a “lot of people are talking about … the fact that he was born in Canada and he has had a double passport.”
