You may have heard of Donald Trump. He wears a wig, he wants to ban Muslims from entering America, and once got absolutely slewed by Obama when he demanded to see the president’s birth certificate.
The man does and says some crazy shit. He is a moron. He also could be president of the most powerful nation on Earth.
One of his latest in a long line of idiotic moments came about in February, as he once again championed America’s gun owning policy. Speaking of November’s terrorist attacks in Paris, Trump said ‘Do you really think that if there were people in the crowd, who were armed and trained, things would have turned out the same way? I don’t think so. They would have killed the terrorists. It makes sense.’
Sense, eh? Let’s check that. In America, where they can carry guns, there was a terrorist attack that killed 14 and wounded 21 on December 2nd 2015 in San Bernadino. They did not manage to kill the terrorists. So Trump’s concrete prediction is at best a little optimistic. And with a murder rate which is quadruple that of France and Britain, it would seem gun ownership ensures about as much safety as a broken condom.
Alarmingly, Trump is predicted by many to win the Republican nomination, and if that happens, it is a two-horse race between him and the Democrat candidate. So this time next year it could be the Donald waggling his fat finger over the nuclear button, setting his toupee to rest on a bed side table in the White House, declaring children in areas with Mexicans should carry guns.
‘It makes sense’, after all.
God help us.
