USA: Did Trump Jump The Shark? Are The Happy Days Over?

By Alistair Reign, December 9, 2015. Alistair Reign News Blog.

On Monday, real estate mogul turned presidential candidate, Donald Trump set people’s heads spinning when he proposed to ban all Muslims, (including tourists) from entering the United States, “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” 

In case you missed it, Donald Trump graced the Fox News Channel on Monday, appearing ‘On the Record’.

Donald Trump Jumps The SharkThe highlight of the show had to be when Trump stated that he is in favour of shutting down any Muslims from entering the US, and he proceeded to criticize President Obama’s speech from the previous evening, calling it “one of the most ridiculous speeches I’ve ever seen.

When asked about Muslim members of the US military who are overseas, Trump replied, “They’ll come home and we have to be vigilant, and we have take care of the Muslims that are living here, but we have to be vigilant. We had two of them living here, and they had guns, and everybody that – they had tremendous, they had bombs. They had ammunition. everybody knew that something bad was going to happen, and for the sake of political correctness, or anything you want to call it, they refused – people that knew what was going on, refused to report these people, and many people died. So, we can’t allow this to happen.

Of course Trump is attempting to backtrack and explain what he meant is not what he said, or what he said is not what he meant. I find it difficult to follow the Trump thought process. Either way, Trump made his way back to Fox News last night to explain “why” he wants to ban all Muslims from entering the USA.

In the Breitbart London, journalist Joel Pollak said, “Ben Rhodes, a failed creative writer who managed to become a White House deputy national security adviser despite having no national security credentials whatsoever (I want to know what happened in that vetting process), told Wolf Blitzer on CNN that Trump’s idea would violate the Bill of Rights.”

Unfortunately it would not, because Trump’s proposed policy would apply to Muslim immigration, and visitors, not existing citizens, according to the statement his campaign manager made in the Associated Press. The US already shamelessly subjects refugees to a ‘religious test‘. Perhaps a gold star is not that far-fetched.

So, has Donald Trump jumped the proverbial shark? I just checked the latest CNN polls, and apparently – not yet. Trump is still leader of the pack.

Donald Trump said he’s clearly shown that he’s got what it takes to be commander in chief, declaring on Tuesday, “I’m the worst thing that’s ever happened to ISIS.

In an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters that aired Tuesday night, Trump refused to back down from his controversial proposal to temporarily ban all Muslims from entering the U.S., despite intense blow-back from the White House and many of his GOP rivals.

We have to do the right thing; somebody in this country has to say what’s right,” Trump said in defending his stance. And when asked by Walters whether he’s a bigot, Trump firmly said he’s not, “probably the least of anybody you’ve ever met. [01]

And having typed that last paragraph, I now drop the mic, and exit stage left.
