Something is very wrong with the establishment Republicans — Many of the top-tier and far-behind GOP candidates have jumped on Donald Trump and his NON-response to the OBAMA-MUSLIM question — It shows that they have completely bought into “Political Correctness” — and that real questions by real Americans scares the piss out of them
Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal and a few others make me want to puke.... They’re upset that Trump didn’t >>> IMMEDIATELY CORRECT <<< a fellow American that expressed the heart-felt beliefs of many good Americans
THEY WANT TRUMP TO SPEAK-UP AND DEFEND OBAMA AS A CHRISTIAN
So far Trump’s silence on the OBAMA-MUSLIM issue is >>>> BRILLIANT <<<< — I hope he keeps it up — Let the others hang themselves — Almost as BRILLIANT was Trump’s pivot to >>>> “.... The bigger issue is that Obama is waging a war against Christians in this country. Their religious liberty is at stake....”
Here’s a precis of what all the brouhaha is all about – according to Newsmax – “.... Trump is facing criticism from both Republican and Democratic candidates following caustic remarks made by two men about the president that he failed to correct, The Hill reports.... One man in the crowd told Trump, ‘We have a problem in this country — it’s called Muslims.… We know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American. That’s my question, when can we get rid of them?’... Trump answered back, ‘We’re going to be looking at a lot of different things. A lot of people are saying bad things are happening, [and] we’re going to be looking at that and plenty of other things.’....” Then a second man said, “.... ‘I applaud the gentlemen who stood and said that Obama is a Muslim born abroad.’... ‘Right,’ Trump replied....” (See “Trump Scraps Campaign Trip for 'Significant Business Transaction' ” by Bill Hoffman, 9/18/15, Newsmax/ newsmax.com [http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/trump-cancel-trip-conservative/2015/09/18/id/692274/]).
Since, that occurred at a Trump Q & A last night, there has been weeping and gnashing of teeth among several GOP candidates, like those mentioned in my sub-headline above; Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley; and to be sure, myriad communities in the main stream media.
I have a simple question about all of that — how is any of that bad for Donald Trump and his campaign ? ? ?
FOR ONCE, TRUMP’S SILENCE IS GOLDENSo far, Trump’s silence on the questions has everybody more flummoxed than anything that he has said up to now about anything — including Mexicans and Jeb Bush’s half-Mexican family..... So far TRUMP has been brilliant in his silence..... Almost as brilliant was his generally responsive comment that was issued a couple of hours later — the one about Obama's "War on Christianity."
Here’s how theBusiness Insider (a representative of the MSM) handled it — “Trump did not correct [what the Business Insider characterized as ‘the blatant falsehood’] that Obama is a Muslim, nor did he address the questioner calling American Muslims ‘a problem.’... Trump released a statement to The Washington Post defending his comments.... ‘The media wants to make this issue about Obama,’ he told the Post. ‘The bigger issue is that Obama is waging a war against Christians in this country. Their religious liberty is at stake.’... His campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, talked to the Post late Thursday night to further defend Trump's answer.... ‘Mr. Trump was asked about training camps,’ Lewandowski said. ‘Mr. Trump answered the question and said, “If there are any, we will fix it.” He said, “I will look into it.” The question was specifically about training camps.’... When asked if Trump believes that Obama is a Muslim, Lewandowski told the Post that he doesn't speak for Trump and that it's ‘up to the media’ if they want to ‘make this about Obama.’...” (See “TRUMP: 'Obama is waging a war against Christians' ” by
