If you’re having a rough week, you have my condolences. November was an all-in-all shit month altogether for me, so I feel you – I do. But, new month, new person for the world to shit on, and so far, that lucky bastard in question has been Donald Trump.
I’ll go ahead and leave my political affiliations out of this, but, concerning this past week, Trump has been questionable at best with much of America, and the White House has officially chimed in to call foul.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest ripped into Trump Tuesday during his daily media briefing, calling his proposal to suspend the arrival of those who the practice Islam from entering the country “deeply offensive.”
“The Trump campaign for months now has had a dustbin-of-history-like quality to it, from the vacuous sloganeering to the outright lies to even the fake hair. The whole carnival-barker routine that we’ve seen for some time now.”
That’s right. He, like so many before him, is not above taking a shot to that infamous mop. And after questioning the entire Republican Party for agreeing to support Trump were he to win the nomination to become POTUS, he went on to, basically, call the real estate mogul unelectable.
“Now, I know that each of the Republican candidates has already taken an oath pledging to support Donald Trump for president of the United States if he wins the nomination. But the fact is, the first thing a president does when he or she takes the oath of office is to swear an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States,” he said. “What he said is disqualifying.”
Trumps proposal came on the heels of last week’s ISIS-linked mass shooting in San Bernardino, California. After President Obama’s address from the Oval Office Sunday night, where he urged Americans to not let their hatred and fear towards ISIS broaden into a generalized fear of all Muslims, and stating that some of our sports heroes, themselves, are, in fact Muslim, Trump went on to question it in a tweet.
Obama said in his speech that Muslims are our sports heroes. What sport is he talking about, and who? Is Obama profiling?

I guess his research skills are lacking, though, because he overlooked some greats like Muhammad Ali, Shaq, and Kareem Abdul-Jabar. But whether this truly disqualifies him from the race for the Republican nomination, I’m not sure.
As far as the hair goes, though, Trump has tried to prove its authenticity time and time again, and apparently lets people run their fingers through what I can only assume is its corn silk-like lustrous-ness..
