Donald Trump’s True Colors–the telltale detail.
A few years ago a retired fireman in Texas videotaped his armed encounter with neighbors. He used all the right words for a stand your ground defense. ” I have a gun. I’m in fear for my life.” But, he wasn’t videotaping self-defense. He was videotaping murder.
Yet, I think he might have had a chance of getting away with it (the neighbors were drunk, loud, and threatening). What I have alway thought completely cooked our wily ex-fireman’s no good goose was testimony at trial that he had once shot a dog (a stray I think) a dozen times with a pellet gun. Let that image of a dozen shots take hold for a moment.
Every juror who heard that detail immediately decided this guy was a sadistic SOB who was perfectly capable of murder, no matter how much the defense tried to muddy the water.
The wanton cruelty to that vulnerable animal was “the telling detail” that exposed the defendant’s true character.
I think the same holds true in the Donald and Ivana story. She can say now that rape didn’t occur. Everybody knows that divorces are often brutal things. Spouse charges spouse with all kinds of things. Charge, counter-charge, recanting, re-charging. It is all too messy to ferret out the truth, especially after thirty years have passed. People can see the rape charge as over-blown and media bombast.
What I have not heard disputed is that the duo had a brutal encounter in which he pulled out clumps of Ivana’s hair prior to whatever they want to call their sexual encounter. Again, let the image of that struggle take hold.
What kind of man PULLS OUT CLUMPS OF A WOMAN’S HAIR? He didn’t just grab her hair, which is by the way battery. He pulled clumps of her hair OUT, an act which demands both calculated intent and serious, maybe sustained, physical commitment.
For me, this is the most telling or revealing aspect of the encounter. It tells one so much about the true nature of the man. It is an act that is both calculatedly brutal and bizarrely childish. Kids PULL each other’s hair. Teenaged girls PULL each other’s hair. Sadistic brutes pull clumps of other people’s hair OUT.
DONALD TRUMP IS A CANDIDATE TO BECOME YOUR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE. DONALD TRUMP IS A MAN WHO PULLED OUT CLUMPS OF HIS ESTRANGED WIFE’S HAIR, IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO HAVING SOME TYPE OF SEXUAL ENCOUNTER WITH HER. OBVIOUSLY, HE IS JUST THE KIND OF MAN YOU WANT TO STAND UP TO THE CHALLENGES FACED BY AMERICA.
