The more vulgar and tasteless he gets, the more his supporters - including women - eat it up.

P.T. Barnum said you would never go broke underestimating the taste of the American public.

Then there's this, from Mencken:

“Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.”

What a crass and vulgar man he is. The latest is that he is saying Clinton was "schlonged" by Obama in the '08 primaries, claiming that means she was "beaten badly." I do not believe that he does not know what that really means and that he didn't use the term deliberately. Repulsive!

Yeah, but he says what's on his mind and doesn't care what people think, so that's why he should be president.

Riiiight. Because there is no such thing as diplomacy anymore. Best to just let it all out. The truth hurts? Suck it up, buttercup. That will work well when dealing with, oh, Russia? Iran? GO, DONALD, GO! We're #1 !! He's making 'merica great again.

I hate that campaign slogan. Sure, we need a big dose of self-reflection, self-improvement and reform, but I think America's a great country already.

Having grown up with a Yiddishe bubbe (gramma) I can say that schlong is only one of the words for that appendage. More importantly, Trump is a Goy (Yiddish for Cracker). Not only a Goy, but by his vulgar actions a Goyishe Hazzer (a pig). My Bubbe would have called him Mishugina Hurlica (very crazy). Schmuck, Putz, and Goniff (thief ) are a few words he conjures in my mind. My Bubbe used to say people are Lekish (nobody) until you make them someone. She also said, “You should live so long that your head should turn into a cabbage!’ I think Trump is there. What Trump is not is a Mensch(a person of integrity and forthrightness).

I have a hunch that if Trump starts taking a beating in primaries, the word "schlonged" will boomerang back at him.
