At a rally in Florida, the GOP front-runner, Donald “Drumpf” Trump, encouraged people to raise their right hands with a promise to vote for him in the upcoming primary. Yes, the photo above is real, and people didn’t have a problem, or didn’t understand the horrible historical significance, of a large crowd raising their hands in such a way.
Yeah, I know, Godwin’s Law and all that, but COME ON. Doesn’t the photo of the Drumpf rally make you all squirmy inside — and not in a good way?
Is Drumpf just trolling these ignorant people, so he can have a laugh later on with the wife and kids? Or is Drumpf actually that friggin’ stupid? And do I really want to know either way…?
Here’s what Drumpf said, while wagging his stubby little finger, after he got all the rubes to do their clueless Nazi imitations:
“Don’t forget you all raised your hand,” Trump said at the conclusion of the pledge. “You swore. Bad things happen if you don’t live up to what you just did.”
He’s finished talking to people at a fourth grade level — now he’s down to speaking on a pre-school level — which seems appropriate since toddlers, much like Drumpf, tend to “say what they think,” too.
I weep for this country…
