Well, it took him all night, but Donald Trump finally thought of a rejoinder to Elizabeth Warren’s devastating speech — unfortunately, like everything else about him, Trump’s l’espirt d’escailer leaves something to be desired.
If you guessed that it had something to do with “Pocahontas,” well, you’ve been paying attention to the racist attacks Trump’s delivered in the past.
“At it again”
Elizabeth Warren savaged Donald Trump during a Thursday speech; just hours before she endorsed Hillary Clinton, Warren took to the home plate and knocked it out of the park, referring to Trump as, “… a loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud who has never risked anything for anyone and who serves no one but himself.”
She slammed him for his racist attacks on Judge Gonzalo Curiel, and went after Trump for being a bully:
Trump is picking on someone who is ethically bound not to defend himself – exactly what you’d expect from a thin-skinned, racist bully. Race-baiting a judge who spent years defending America from the terror of murderers and drug traffickers simply because long ago his family came to America from somewhere else. You, Donald Trump, are a total disgrace.
Now, you’d surely expect a winner like Donald Trump to have a zinger of a response ready. I mean, he literally tore through Jeb Bush on Twitter; everyone should remember the beating that Trump gave Bush. It was about the only time I ever felt sorry for anyone with that name.
And he did; it was a rejoinder of such originality and creativity that it’ll leave everyone speechless. I mean, could you expect anything less from a man who’s entire campaign is built around him being a winner?
“Pocahontas” and “goofy.” If that’s the best this entitled fimicolous troglodytic zoophyte with an exotic arthropod for a hairpiece can muster, he really is a paper tiger. The Pocahontas slur didn’t get her opponent, Scott Brown, anywhere, so I’m not sure why Trump thinks he can make it work any better than the mop he wears on his head.
What’s more, this devastating rejoinder took him a full 12 hours to concoct. It took me less than a minute to come up with “fimicolous troglodytic zoophyte with an exotic arthropod for a hairpiece” and that’s not a terribly original line of attack.
But hey, I don’t make my name around always winning, so I’ll happily dodge the award for “weakest comeback ever.”
