US politics sure is different and entertaining because there seems to be no limit on what they can say and do. Donald J Trump has confounded the “experts” who never expected that he would still be leading the polls since he announced his intention to run for the Republicans. Trump, it seems, can do and say anything and people still back him. In a way this is similar to the support that Rob Ford got in Toronto from his “Ford Nation”
who, when he was confronted with drug use, said that was ok because he did it on his own time.
Trump got his big “endorsement” from Sarah Palin, who gave a rambling and humorous speech, because of her unique language and sayings.
In speaking on present foreign policy she said “And you quit footin’ the bill for these nations who are oil-rich, we’re paying for some of their squirmishes that have been going on for centuries. Like I’ve said before, let them duke it out and let Allah sort it out.”
She defended Trump for not being part of the Washington establishment by stating
“How ‘bout the rest of us? Right wingin’, bitter clingin’, proud clingers of our guns, our God, and our religions, and our Constitution. Tell us that we’re not red enough? Yeah, coming from the establishment “
And in backing Trump she proclaimed “Are you ready to make America great again? We all have a part in this. We all have a responsibility. Looking around at all of you, you hard-working Iowa families. You farm families, and teachers, and teamsters, and cops, and cooks. You rockin’ rollers. And holy rollers! All of you who work so hard. You full-time moms. You with the hands that rock the cradle. You all make the world go round, and now our cause is one.’ Very philosophical!
Now, if Trump had some help from Canadian ad agencies you might see the following ad on US television. There would be people sitting around a table and the conversation would be “We have a new resume here”, “It seems the only thing he has done is make billions”, “But he has no political experience”, “I think he is just not ready”. Then the last person would say ‘Nice hair though.”
