It seems like almost every day Donald Trump comes up with a new infantile comeback to justify his despicable behavior or of those in his employ.
Recently on ABC’s This Week Trump came under fire for Tweeting out an insulting photo of Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, but justified his immature Twitter tantrum by blaming Ted Cruz and lamenting “He started it”, proving Trump can multi-task as he acts like a belligerent a**hole and a petulant child at the same time.
While barely a week goes by that Trump is not the media focus of some new act of disgraceful behavior, this week it was Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who is in the hot seat for an incident that happened earlier this month involving his alleged assault of former Breitbart reporter, Michelle Fields.
Lewandowski, who was arrested on charges of misdemeanor battery after a video surfaced of him aggressively grabbing Fields, will of course plead “not guilty” because no one in the Trump camp has ever been guilty of any wrong doing, ever. After all, they are great, and you’re going to love them, insert sarcasm squiggles here!
On Tuesday, Trump gave an impromptu press conference from inside his gold-plated Boeing 757, where he vehemently stood up for his campaign manager and somehow twisted the laws of reality by making the convoluted argument that what law enforcement saw on the closed-circuit tape of the incident, was not what law enforcement saw on the close circuit tape of the incident.
In his press conference, Trump egregiously distorted the facts by stating,
Who said they were bruises from that? How do you know those bruises weren’t there before?
And then went on to add,
To me, you know if you’re going to get squeezed, wouldn’t you think that she would have yelled out a scream or something? Take a look at her facial expression, her facial expression doesn’t even change.
Which sounds a lot like the type of argument a child would make after he accidentally throws a baseball through his neighbor’s window.
The real take away from this incident, like any other incident involving Donald Trump, is Trump’s total lack of personal responsibility for his own actions as well as the actions of those he employs and influences.
Whether it be “Trump University”, his loss in Iowa, or his declining favorable ratings, Trump is always quick to sue, threaten, and throw a tantrum when he feels victimized by others, while at the same time claiming he is the strongest, most powerful candidate to ever grace the campaign trail. That doesn’t sound like leadership to me, it sounds like delusion.
