Trump Reveals Lindsey Graham's Cell Phone Number on TV

I don't know if he did this on purpose, or if he was just holding the paper away from his eyes to read it (nearsightedness).

It looks like it was on purpose, but it's hard to tell. I really don't know.

This will once again be a flashpoint: Those who are against doxxing, and those who are going to say it's great theater and fight the enemy with any weapon fair or foul, etc.

This is becoming a true clownshow. Who knows, perhaps that's good for America; perhaps we need it revealed to us all what a clownshow is this country and its political parties are.

Trump, meanwhile, "clarifies" his weekend remarks and says McCain was, in fact, a war hero. He says that we all misheard what he said -- which AllahPundit points out is a silly claim. It's true that Trump said McCain was a war hero, but only because he was captured; it was wrong for people to report (not sure who did this, but I guess some did) that Trump said McCain was not a war hero.

No, he did say he was a war hero -- "only because he was captured... I prefer guys who weren't captured, but that's just me."

Allah calls this "sarcastic" which I don't think is the right word, exactly; it's dismissive, it's denigrating.

Which, as I said, is fine, as far as McCain goes; my problem is about denigrating all of America's POWs -- after all, they're just the idiots who got captured.

And what about those killed in action? What a bunch of assholes, am I right or am I right?

As I said, I don't think this is the worst thing; I'm sure Trump wasn't thinking about that when he made his crack about McCain.

But that's the problem: He wasn't thinking. He is in that particular mode, the mode of not thinking about obvious traps he's walking into, an awful lot of the time.

And far from seeking to correct this, he's genuinely proud of his Not Thinkingness, and many of his supporters are shouting that Not Thinkingness is the way to win.

None of his gaffes, so far, is such a big deal, and yes, as Rush Limbaugh says (day after day after day), these gaffes are chiefly of concern to beltway insiders who can't stand Trump anyway.

But they do begin to pile up, and meanwhile, we're talking about Trump's latest outrages, pro or con, instead of any actual policy initiative that would be helpful for the nation.

Remember, in case we've all forgotten, that the first raison d'etre for the Trump candidacy was his ability to start an important discussion that the beltway political class didn't want to have, but that the people were aching for.

Fair enough.

But in that case -- what important discussions are we having this week? Lindsey Graham's cell phone number, or whether John McCain is a tool for letting himself be captured?

These are the Great Fights we need to have, that only a man with the audacity of Trump can begin on our behalves?

We don't seem to be talking about the issues that only Trump has the guts to bring to the people -- we only seem to be talking about Trump.
