Donald Trump in 1999: I'm Strongly Pro-Choice; I Wouldn't Restrict Partial Birth Abortion

But now he's like pro-life and stuff.

Bet you didn't know that, he remarked at CPAC. That is correct. There are many things which aren't true which I don't know.

I don't even want to entertain this because it's so silly. Apart from the undignified bluster, the tackiness, the egotism, etc., there's his two divorces, his frequent support of and donations to Democrats, etc.

On the support of Democrats: I get that, I do, let's face it, he was a businessman in an area of business heavily regulated by government (but I repeat myself; isn't that all businessmen?) and needed to pay off both sides to be left alone; but I don't think I'm buying he's a Republican. Well, sure, maybe sort of a Polite Company Republican, but not a serious conservative or anything.

One thing I have to mention too: When Rosie O'Donnell went after him, he went after her hard. Now that was some of the funniest shit I've ever heard, and I loved every minute of it, and damn if I didn't search around every news channel to see if Trump was on slamming O'Donnell yet again, but in fact a lot of people are going to react badly to seeing that all again. He called her fat, stupid, fat, a loser, fat, a gross pig, fat, etc.

He also said that Rosie's lesbian girlfriend must be horrified to wake up and see Rosie, and said he might just... well, check the clip below.

Now, in terms of comedy: Nine points out of ten.

In terms of presidential gravitas and the sort of blandly nonthreatening personality type the voters like: Zero points out of ten.

I could vote for him, I guess. I just am not seeing his appeal to the Heartland, though. The stuff the Heartland doesn't like about city slickers? Seems like Trump pretty much embodies all that.

Thanks to Charles.
