JIM CREES: Way tired of Trump, but...

I really don’t want to write about Donald Trump.

Frankly, I despair there are so many people who take, or have learned to take him seriously. I figure writing my concerns about Trump is a lost cause.

Donald Trump is a buffoon.

Still, folks are just giggly about Donald. He’s quite a character, and ever so... entertaining.

For me, however, the vision of Trump as president of these United States is scary. Very scary.

And not only me.

Just recently a former Bush II administration official and one of the major Iraq war designers, Paul Wolfowitz, said he believes Donald Trump would be a danger to American national security.

Now, consider this for a second - Wolfowitz thinks Trump is dangerous!!!

Oh. My. God!!!

The guy who almost singularly had more to do with sinking this nation in a devastating war in the Middle East which had zero positive impact and no actual resolution believes Donald Trump is dangerous.

Wolfowitz is a guy who thinks the only problem we had in Iraq was not committing more to the purpose of...whatever.

More troops. More armor. More intervention. More death. More destruction. And the same result.

And HE is afraid of a Donald Trump presidency.

“The only way you can be comfortable about Trump’s foreign policy, is to think he doesn’t really mean anything he says,” noted Wolfowitz in an interview with the German newspaper Der Spiegel.

“That’s a pretty uncomfortable place to be in. Our security depends on having good relationships with our allies. Trump mainly shows contempt for them. And he seems to be unconcerned about the Russian aggression in Ukraine. By doing this he tells them that they can go ahead and do what they are doing. That is dangerous.”

“I wish there were somebody I could be comfortable voting for,” he added.

In a later interview with The Los Angeles Times, Wolfowitz suggested the credibility of the United States in the world would be undermined if Trump was elected.

“It’s the fact that our friends aren’t going to trust us and our enemies aren’t going to fear us,” he said. “Trump says he admires Putin, that Saddam Hussein was killing terrorists, that the Chinese were impressive because they were tough on Tiananmen Square. That is pretty disturbing.”

Disturbing! No kidding!

Wolfowitz and others are seriously concerned about any serious policy being offered by the Trump campaign team. Still, it’s hard to create policy when there is no actual evidence of concrete policy consideration.

In years past, Trump supported immigration reform, gun control and legal abortion. Then, on becoming the Republican candidate, he suddenly became a dedicated a opponent of all three.

Substantial issues, such as international trade agreements, are “stupid,” but Mr. Trump never offers his own program or policy. Rather, he says, he and he alone, will fix things.

He says he is the only person alive who can deal with the Islamic State. He understands the issue better than all the generals in the U.S. military command. But he has not formulated any form of strategy for combating ISIS.

Trump says 11 million undocumented immigrants must be deported - MUST BE DEPORTED. Then he says... um... not really.

There is, however, one thing Donald Trump has been consistent about for years...and years... and years.

He is consistently and continuously belittling and diminishing of women.

Back in 1990, during an interview with Vanity Fair, he said he would never give his then-wife Ivana any present of value noting, “I would never buy Ivana any decent jewels or pictures. Why give her negotiable assets?”

In 1991 he told Esquire magazine “You know, it doesn’t really matter what the press write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”

Much more recently, during the GOP primary campaign, Trump held firm on the importance of beauty, suggesting former Hewlett Packard boss Carly Fiorina was not and should never be president because, “Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”

And, of course, there is the famous dig at Arianna Huffington in which he wrote on Twitter, “@ariannahuff is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man - he made a good decision.”

And just recently he tweeted a personality revealing comment about rival Hillary Clinton on Twitter (although his campaign says it wasn’t him tapping in to his own Twitter account.)

Trump went so low as to say, “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?” @realDonaldTrump

The Tweet has been removed from his site, but not before it was viewed, screenshot, and read by many.


Trump is a scary guy.

Radical hawk Republicans are afraid of him. Women should be really, Really, REALLY afraid of him.

And Evangelicals??? C’mon, folks. Seriously?
